For the past few days I have been working in Amsterdam so I wanted to feature my favorite Dutch (well, actually Mexican) blogger: Andy Torres.
I saw her in these shorts and the leopard-drenched Michael Kors runway show at about the same time and I have been searching for the perfect pair ever since.
I invest in my bags more than any other category of my wardrobe and I do end up gravitating towards classic it bags. The problem with it bags is that everyone ends up having…it.
My souvenir from London is a new bag by Helmut Lang, the Ankou.
For the next few weeks I will be traveling to so many new places. My luggage is pretty light but I did pack a few new pieces:
I could see this dress in the window at H&M from a distance and at first I thought it was one of those “green” dresses made out of paper. I told my friend, if that is real, I am buying it.
It is Crillon Ball worthy.
Back in high school I discovered Creed Spring Flower and I was obsessed with it. A few other girls caught on and suddenly the scent became status quo, so I layed off the stuff…
Over the past few years I have purchased several scents per year but not really loved any of them.
Yesterday (Easter), Ella (our dog) went missing for about seven hours. My brother and I put up 80+ signs and thankfully, our neighbors found and brought her home safely. I am so thankful that she was lost in a “dog-friendly” neighborhood. Thank you, Mr. & Mrs. X!
I have stalked each of these items for a while and finally decided to pry the debit card out of my wallet and invest in some new pieces. (I am incredible strategic, so purchases take some thought.)
This is part two of a three part series.
Two lessons to learn:
1. Monochrome works best with mixed textures.
2. If you wear a solid look, add a printed accessory.
Anytime you go with solids you need to add a texture or a print. My shorts, top and blazer layer well because of the varying prints; since my pony hair, leopard platforms are so far away from all of the texture, they work and add some depth to an otherwise too-airy look.
