this season, there are so many designer pieces i'd love to get my undeserving sticky little fingers on. starting with this:
#3 The cut-out ankle shoe / boot. ok, so basically everyone has a version of these right now. (jeffrey campbell, steve madden, aldo, topshop, etc) but these are my favorite (balenciaga). they remind me so much of the 90s, and i love how everyone is wearing them with those babydoll dresses and florals as well as flannels and jeans. these are quite pricey (over $1K). and of course they're my faves, so i may have to find a cheaper alternative if i want to eat for the next 7 months...;l
#6 a big, chunky sweater in an unusual shape. (like this 'cocoon' one from jil sander). gorgeous! this is a wool and cashmere blend, and you could wear it with your msgm leather sweatpants you spent almost a week's salary on, or with skinny disco-shiny leggings, or with a tailored pencil skirt. i would probably wear this without jewelry, but a statement bangle, collar, or chunky necklace would also work really well....you could also do a grandpa cardigan, big over sized, slouchy turtleneck, or a boyfriend coat...
#8 a cool hat. cool hats are always in style, but it seems like there is more of an emphasis on them this fall. this black fedora is by karl lagerfeld (wool felt) and you can get it on net-a-porter.com. (rag&bone also has a really nice one). you don't have to get a fedora either, i've seen those little boaters everywhere from h&m to ASOS, and they're all really cute.
#9 the boyfriend coat. this one is from chloe. i love coats. if you life in a place where it gets cold, you know what i'm talking about. i kind of hate winter, so i have to make sure i have a lot of warm coats to keep me comfortable and that i won't get sick of wearing after having to put them on and take them off for the 99,999 time over the winter...love how you can just throw them on over anything and they instantly make you look pulled together. they're not to hard to find: ASOS and topshop both have them, and if you have a good eye, you can certainly find them in your local thrift store, which is where i bought mine last year. just make sure you get the sleeves, hems and darts tailored to your proportions, if needed, so you don't look like you're a homeless person. (like me).
converse, and maison margiela??? i really like converse to begin with and MMM is a designer that i've learned about recently, and really like, so i'm looking forward to seeing what they come up with.
so those are some of my top picks for this season, and i am so sorry to see summer go. i actually have no idea where it went. what's on your wish list? let me know and thanks as always for reading xxx <3333
