Is it deja vu? If looking at this apartment gives you the eery feeling that you've seen it, and loved it, all before that's probably because it is the work of Ryan Korban whose home I featured recently. This bedroom has the same luxe feel, with light grey walls (which I want), furs, shiny metals, and expertly chosen artwork.
I've been mildly obsessing over the knit shorts by Stolen Girlfriends Club for some time (check them out on Rumi), searching high and low for a cheaper alternative. But NOW, after seeing this editorial, I wanna go all the way. Full. Length. Knits. Can you possibly think of anything cuddlier than a cableknit bodysuit (soft knit, not that itchy stuff)? The search begins.
I hope you've all survived the weekend! Sadly, one member of my shoe family did not.
Last night (Saturday) I went out for dinner and drinks and was pumped to wear a brand new pair of Jeffrey Campbell boots for the first time, but while walking to dinner I felt a riiiiiiiiiiiip - the heel of the shoe had completely separated from the sole! The whole sole was just flapping off my foot every time I took a step. QUE DESASTRE! I could already feel the other sole was starting to rip too.
I played it off, I walked, danced, and worked it like nothing was wrong but on the inside.. I was silently mourning the death of my JC's. How cheap. How poorly made. I mean I still love you Jeffrey but that was a major blow to the relationship. How can I trust you now?? How can I trust that this was a one-off mistake and it won't happen again? Without trust, I don't know if it'll ever be like before, maybe we should just be friends.
If I weren't wearing my (defunct) Jeffrey Campbell's and leather jacket-skirt combo, this is what I would have liked to wear..
earrings Giles & Brother, dress Acne, shoes Boettega Veneta, ring Pamela Love, purse Antik Batik
This girl has perfect taste in summer dresses. I believe the first is Zara and the second is H&M. And how adorable are her sunglasses with the chain, and that saddle bag. I think I wanna try the chain on a pair of Ray-Bans, cute and convenient!
To Forever 21 and snatch up these MiuMiu look-alike shoes. If I know anything about the blogosphere (cringe-worthy word), I predict these babies will sell out within the next day so heed my advice and get yourself a pair NOW!
And a week from now when every blogger and their mom is wearing these, you will thank me for the heads up.
Just to prove my point, here is Ida Rislow from A Perfect Guide in her realdeal MiuMiu's. Can you even tell the difference?
Don't forget to enter SHIPFREE at the checkout for free shipping! (If you spend over $40 - which you can achieve by buying this shoe in solid black and flower print)
Last night I attended the opening show of Sydney Fashion Festival, "a retrospective showcase of the most inspiring looks to be sent down the runway over the past 15 years." The show included looks from Sass & Bide, Zimmerman, Akira, Alex Perry, Lisa Ho (who I sat behind!), and so many more. I had an incredible view of all the looks and guess who... Gala from am-lul's closet! I've been following her blog for years so seeing her in person pretty much reduced me to fan girl status (play cool Cristina, play cool).
Here are the photos I took at the show..
Hope you all had a beautiful weekend! I actually played laser tag at a birthday party yesterday and MAN I'm sore. Running in a squat position for 30 minutes really worked a number on my thighs. Youch. Now getting ready for the week to start.
Rosemount Sydney Fashion Festival week to be exact. Super excited to go to my first shows!
What to wear??? I don't know yet. But judging by these photos, I need an animal print clutch, stat.
Every few months I get the urge to paint my apartment. And right now, I've got it baad. I have a charcoal grey feature wall in my living room but I'm thinking of going light dove grey on all the walls. All of the walls = lots of work. But I'm in love with the idea of light grey walls and a red persian rug under the coffee table. Currently looking for inspiration photos to convince myself to invest in some blue tape and go ahead with it. And the photos below are quite convincing.
This gorgeous apartment belongs to interior designer Ryan Korban. His Soho studio is pretty much my dream. Take note of his walls and rugs.
Here's Sandra from 5 inch and up in a genius lil diy skirt made from a button up shirt! No alterations involved, just a sneaky steal from her bf's closet. Must try!
I imagine you just slip the shirt up to your waist, (don’t do the top few buttons) and tie the sleeves in a knot… it sounds super easy in my head. Yet to see if the real life execution goes as smoothly.
This one's for my friend Chris, who so lovingly follows my blog but admits "I love braids and all but coming from a man with about 3 centimeters of hair on my head… I just cant relate" Fair enough! Here's some man style for you, some eye candy for me, and a trend I'm loving on both men and women right now: shearling bombers.
