Hello, Fancy Pants

What I Wore Fancy Pants

I loved the crazy geometric-covered looks at Prada last Fall but they weren’t exactly wearable. While I tore out all the looks when I spotted them in magazines, I filed the thought of wearing them in real life away for good.

Then, while on my maiden voyage through London in January, I spotted these much more wearable geometric fancy pants stuffed in the sale racks of Zara, deep inside a massive mall. In a softly structured light wool blend knit, they reminded me more of pajama pants than anything but hey, maybe that’s not a bad thing. Pajama-inspired details are big this season and celebs have been wearing pajamas as outerwear for years (my idol Michael Jackson owned the look).

What I Wore Fancy Pants

I Wore:

Sweater, H&M
Necklace, H&M
Bag, Versus
Pants, Zara
Boots, Proenza Schouler

Sometimes it’s nice to give my black BDG skinnies a rest and these will be a nice transition into Spring. And I see them getting a lot of wear because they’re by far the most comfortable pants in my closet (no cutting off the circulation in these!) which makes them perfect attire for sitting at a desk.

Modesquisse: Fashion Illustration Inspiration

If you’re interested in fashion illustration, Modesquisse (French for sketch fashion) is for you! The site is dedicated to curating fashion illustrations on magazine and book covers and what’s especially wonderful is that it doesn’t just cater to current issues — instead, the collection goes back over a century! I love seeing what magazine covers looked like a hundred years ago and it’s interesting to note the lack of headlines cluttering the covers. Back then, the covers were works of art in themselves.
