Yesterday afternoon, in my dining room.


Lately, I’ve been thinking more about defining my style and developing a strong, unified look for each season (remember Gala’s Psychedelic Ladies Who Lunch?) I’m still very much drawn to black but I want the silhouettes to be sleek and European-inspired. And, I want the dark palette to be offset with a dash of metallic detailing. Body-conscious but not showing too much skin. Tall shoes but with chunky, stable platforms. Major monotone accessories. Space-age and super mod. Slight Michael Jackson-inspired flashes of androgyny. Silver, sequins and studs. What should I call this look?

I also created a little mood board with some stylistic influences. I don’t have all of the image sources but I love the top editorial featuring Jessica Stam, Leigh Lezark’s consistently sleek all-black looks, any 60’s space age influences, smooth and shiny bluntly cut hair, the oversized Miu Miu turn-locks, edgy yet comfortable black silhouettes, major treads and statement jewelry with a twist.

Though I don’t actually have anywhere to dress up and go to in Portland at the moment, this would be my ideal seasonal look. I’m wearing an H&M dress, Zana Bayne Leather 4-Buckle belt, Wolford Bondage tights and Sam Edelman Zoe boots.

Readers: Have you ever thought about defining your look and developing a regular style direction?
