It’s been a busy week so far â€”Â I leave for LA Friday morning and have been focused on wrapping up projects, catching up with friends from out of town and excitedly packing so apologies in advance if there’s a bit of a slowdown around here. I’m desperately in need of a team of helper elves!
I wore this gray flannel and vinyl dress with interwoven straps over the long holiday weekend. It pretty much sums up my style direction at the moment, which I’m calling classic avant garde. I’m really interested in simple shapes and materials with a twist that are edgy but still comfortable â€”Â for instance, this dress which is made of flannelâ€¦which can be pretty boring in most cases but with some modern details, it gets a new life. It reminds me of something one of my favorite Belgian designers would have designed but with a price tag of less than $100.00, is much more in line with my budget.
Cut-Out Flannel Dress (on sale!), ASOS
Wedges, Acne Atacoma
I like clothes I can wear throughout the seasons â€”Â I’m planning on layering this dress up with a cardigan and cable knit tights for Fall. Maybe if I add a black beret, I can channel a French schoolgirl from the future?
This mood board sums up my style direction at the moment:
1. Sofia Coppola on Italian Vogue in 1992. 2. ASOS Cut-Out Flannel Dress. 3. Warhol made basics fun. 4. Maison Martin Margiela boots. 5. Just love this type (source unknown). Basic sweater with a twist (source unknown). 6. A.F. Vandevorst Belt. 7. ASOS Full Skirt with Mesh Stripes (similar + better price).
