Fall is around the corner and I’ve begun to source images that remind me what I want to look like in the upcoming months. It’s not very easy to look effortlessly stylish, often a lot of pre-planning and recon is vital to fashion supremacy. Disorder is the underbelly of dressing well, even if the very look we are trying to achieve is disorderly. Does that make sense or am I getting too semantic this morning? Nonetheless, I like this look because there is really no “order” to it. A studded belt from at least five season’s ago, the gaudy statement necklaces stacked right, a braid, masculine timepiece with a leather band – such disparate pieces. Her jeans look faded and her blouse is diaphanously feminine. I can’t figure out what the underlying organizational element is and that’s just what makes this look so aesthetically pleasing. You can’t put your finger on it, and you probably couldn’t duplicate it without looking all wrong. It’s a fleeting moment in style, which thankfully, someone captured in a photograph. This is enigmatic inspiration.


Visited an old friend,, only to find that they now have a Canadian online store with shipping service, DHL (you pay a premium for it but it’s the best, in my experience). I love that they get new items in three times a week, and put a heavy emphasis on curation – they suggest what goes with what so you’re not deliberating for hours. For my inaugural purchase I’d like to take this Kenzo knit pullover here.

This particular Celine coat is ubiquitous this season in editorials and subsequently, our collective fashion unconscious. Its strength is patently obvious: the trompe l’oeil knotted coat sleeves (hush, Geoffrey Beene). Instead of function, the sleeves are reduced (or elevated) to beauty without practicality. While other designers add hyperbolic shoulders and pompous peplums in order to re-invent the wheel, Phoebe Philo just tied a knot and changed everything. Now, I’ve seen this coat in countless editorials already, but this punk version with Anja is just the top! And white pants, every girl needs (winter white) white pants this Fall.
