Peeling Sleeves

_MG_9291
Hi lovely ones! If you have been keeping up with the runways, you must have realized that one of the upcoming trends are slitted sleeves. Designers have turned the flared sleeves trend up a notch by slicing straight through them. The new silhouette makes up for a very classy look. Although this blazer could be more accurately included under the cape trend, it can still be considered within the slit sleeve trend’s borderlines. It has become one of my go to layering pieces for work days, particularly because it is super easy to wear and perfect for elevating any look.

Abstract Imagery

The moment I saw these pants, I knew how I wanted to style them. Forget the same-print boxy top that was hanging right next to them, these were begging to be paired with a plain crop top, a long cardigan or vest, and a seductive pair of pumps. Surely enough, when I put it all together, it looked even better than what I had pictured. It is amazing how a sharp look can boost your confidence and give you a change of attitude. When my reflection in the mirror met my eyes, it immediately grinned back at me in cahoots.

A little flare

_MG_9188

I blame Johanna Ortiz for my fixation on naked shoulders, and Ellery for the one on flared everything (sleeves, hemlines…). And what do you know?, this black bodysuit combines them both! 

I literally, grabbed it on my way out of the store. After fine combing the place from top to bottom, I was stepping out, when my eyes fell upon the ample sleeves. I grabbed the bodysuit, pulled one sleeve up to a 90 degree angle, and fell in love with the cascading extra cloth that draped gracefully. Despite de unpracticality of it, -I mean, for real, who needs XL sleeves plunging into glasses or sweeping across the table?,- its crushing style blur the unlucky scenarios away.

Gold Matte

I have found myself falling into metallics lately; a trend that fits so perfectly with the holiday season. My favourites are, without a doubt, the liquid-like materials, that look as if they are spilling down your body in a second skin sort of way. For my first party look of the season, I decided to combine a matte gold top with a pleated skirt in the same tone, and a brocade jacket. The opulence of the look, demanded an equally rich lip colour, hence the red shade on my lips.

Love, A

Time for the Sweaters

_MG_0647

Sweater weather is real, people! Every year I tend to forget that temperatures do drop around this time in my country too. Not that our thermometers hit below zero, but we do get fresh mornings and brisk nights.

I love chunky knits, but I don’t usually get to wear them here; however the past weeks have given us the chance to get all cosy in warm socks and sweaters. And around here it doesn’t get any more Christmassy than this, I guess?  

I hope you guys like it, and sorry about my absence lately! 

Love, A
