Latest Obsession: STRIPES

Hey friends! Hope you’re all doing well! Today’s post is all about another SS17 trend that I didn’t bother to mention in my “SS17 Trend Guide”. Why? Good question. Maybe because I thought stripes weren’t that big a deal? Well, I was wrong. STRIPES ARE SO UNDERRATED. I love them! I don’t know what it is about them. Perhaps it ties with my obsession with Paris? Breton stripes are a Parisian thing, right? My current (cause it changes all the freaking time!) dream travel destination is Paris, France. Or anywhere in France! I know it’s probably sounding really cliché but it just looks so amaziinngg! I love all of it. I’m a HUGE Wannabe Parisian, and therefore I need to go.

Anyways, back to the real reason why I’m here. What is that again? .. Just kidding. Stripes. They actually go with absolutely EVERYTHING. Stripes are the ultimate/most awesome pattern because they can be considered a neutral. You can wear them with denim, black, any freaking colour, and with any other pattern too! Now when I say stripes, I’m generally talking about blue and white or black and white stripes. Horizontally or vertically. Here are some pictures:

Do you see?! There are so many ways to wear stripes! These outfits are bomb!! I can’t wait to experiment with stripes this upcoming season. If you couldn’t tell, most of the pictures are from the Fendi SS17 Fashion Show. And let me tell you, Fendi knows how to do stripes. I had to resist sharing photos of every single look that was on Fendi’s runway lol. I also tied in some more wearable looks, but I think Fendi is great inspiration for this trend. I hope this inspires you guys as much as it inspires me! Comment below if you’d like to see a look based on this trend in an upcoming blog post! I may just do it anyway ;p

Enjoy the rest of your Tuesday! (&Happy Valentines Day!!)

Until next time,

Outfit: Gucci Inspired

Yo, and hello! I am very, very, very happy to finally be saying that I HAVE AN OUTFIT POST TO SHARE. Thanks to my friend Ken (Instagram: @kenifromtheblock), I have some shots of an outfit I wore earlier this week!! This particular outfit was inspired by a look I found while browsing the internet. It was a photo of some looks from Fashion Week last year. I was more so loving the center picture/the Gucci look, so I chose to try and recreate it. (I loooove Gucci!) Here’s the photo:

Now my take isn’t as colourful or “out there” as Gucci’s, which I think is what makes my look a bit more wearable. I really like the look of the “pussybow” (it’s what they call it, I swear!). I get Parisian vibes and it makes the look feel a bit more classy/sharp. It’s definitely more feminine and romantic as well. This has me pretty sure that I want to add a blouse with a pussybow to my wardrobe. For my version of the look, I used one of those skinny scarves from Zara and tried to tie it the same way as the picture. My scarf wasn’t as structured as the one in the inspiration photo, but I think it still kind of worked! I was also obsessed with the sleeves of the top from the Gucci look, and I had the perfect sweater to recreate it. Now here’s my take on the Gucci “Pussybow” look!

What do you think? Do YOU like the look? Did I do alright at recreating it? I kind of enjoyed recreating a look from the runway and making it more wearable. Should I do a post like this again? I would love your feedback!

I hope you’re all having a great week so far! I wanna thank Ken again for taking pictures! You all should go check out his Instagram! He’s got great style! (www.instagram.com/kenifromtheblock)  Happy Wednesday/hump day!

Until next time,
