Last week, I shared some of my current interior decor inspirations and this week, I thought I’d share some fashion-related inspiration (old and new) that’s been on my mind as of late.
1. Super Chunky Knits. This version by AF Vandevorst is pretty much perfect. 2. Smooth and Sleek Hair. Black and shiny; I love this aesthetic. 3. Leather Shorts. I’ve been wanting some forever and they are a definite for next summer (source unknown). 4. Studded Accessories. I’m still kicking myself for not picking these Givenchy heels up off the Barney’s sale rack last year. 5. Corsets + Muti-buckled Belts. As usual, Ann Demeulemeester was ahead of the curve. 6. Acne Admire Wedges. I actually tried these on a few months back in New York and wow, they are awesome in part because of the mismatched zippers (one’s on the outside, one’s on the inside). 7. Proenza Schouler PS11 Quilted Bag. The hardware on this bag is gorgeous (and it shows in the price!) 8. Newspaper Leggings. By BlackMilk Clothing. 9. Sheer Black & Edgy Evening Wear. This dress has been out for a few seasons now and I think it was by Alexander Wang. I love the back as much as the front. 10. Black & Gold. I still love this image from Dolce & Gabbana. Regal, edgy and modern.
1. Ungaro Branch Heels. Not particularly practical or wearable but who cares? They’re art. 2. Futuristic Ruffles. I tend to like overtly feminine trends to be a bit harder edged and Christopher Kane manages to nail this aesthetic. 3. Cropped Chunky Knits. I’ve loved this look ever since I spotted it on Elle.com. 4. Glam Safety Pins. Just what you need to hold your chunky knits in place! Also via Elle.com. 5. Perfectly Smokey Eyes. Agyness on i-D is the ideal look I’d like to aim for. 6. Sleek Stripes. I’m digging stripes on more dressy silhouettes these days. 7. White Dr. Martens. After a 10 year break, I am happy to have a white pair of Dr. Martens back on my feet again. Tough, comfy and perfect for winter.
