I found these photos years ago on a French website that is now defunct. I believe these were photos snapped at a Children’s film class where the little ones wrote, directed, filmed and starred in their own short. What caught my eye was how these babies were dressed: the velour smoking jacket, the striped shirts, the yellow boots! I die. I’ve got nearly two decades on these kids, but I’m taking notes. Want to get the look? Find my favorite striped shirt here and my favorite rain boots here. My favorite black jeans are a pair of vintage bootcut Levi's found at a thrift store, but you can find a similar pair here (on sale for $54!).
California-turned-Parisian Haleigh Walsworth is living my dream. She recently purchased and gutted an apartment in Le Marais in Paris. The elements of a classic Parisian apartment are there (stone walls, charming wood beams, worn wood floors...) but with modern updates. I'm smitten. She did a wonderful job of updating and decorating on a budget, and allotted her budget wisely (you can read more about her renovation process here). That being said, the space's most luxurious aspect of all is it's abundance of natural light. In the past, I've chosen apartments with limited light because the rent was on point. Never again! I'll follow in Haleigh's footsteps in the future.
If I could dress head-to-toe in one collection this season, it would be Miu Miu's. I love ladylike looks, but at times I fear my outfits err on the side of... boring. Miu Miu's F/W '15 collection is essentially an edgy take on the "Ladies Who Lunch" look, maybe with a twist of Lolita. I'm sold. Its campaign, shot by Steven Meisel, is one part grunge, two parts Upper East Side and 100% inspiring. This music in this campaign's accompanying short film stresses me out but with the volume turned down, it's wonderful. Which collection speaks to you this season?
