Did you see those floral trousers on Jeanne Damas’ Instagram?
Of course they’re from Rouje.
I’ll do a summery dress, obviously, or a summery skirt, but I’ve never been one for summery trousers.
After adoring my Matis, Lena, and Gabin dresses… and of course the Lolo jumpsuit… it was bound to happen.
It was only a matter of time that I got a sour cherry.
Peak cherry season, for the fruit and the clothing print, is early summer.
… you remember those long sweet days when all you want to do is pop by the farmer’s market and grab a bag on your way to the water.
The Lena is one of Rouje’s newest dresses.
It’s a midi-dress with 13 buttons down the front, a frilled collar and capped sleeves. The dress’ sweetness is offset by a striking red on black Italian inspired spot print…
Basically, the Lena is like Jean-Luc Godard meets Fellini. It’s a living the sweet life kind of dress that leaves you breathless…
OK, those films are pretty depressing in content. In style though? They’re spot on.
Rouje’s Gabin dress, i.e. the dress that always sells out.
You’ve seen this dress before… or you’ve at least seen one of its many dupes.
With its five buttons running down the front and a tie closure, the Gabin has been copied many, many, many times since it came out two years ago.
… but the original in 100% viscose is so much better than any replica.
When I lived in the New York, I only needed a bathing suit for a handful of weeks throughout the year.
Investing in multiple pieces of swimwear did not matter to me.
A recent move brought me back “home” to the Caribbean and all of the sudden, sleek swimwear became an essential.
My sister raves about MIKOH and well, your older sister always knows best, right?
Wait, just to preface this entire review, I wear my La Perla slip as outerwear not loungewear.
… at 100% silk satin, La Perla’s chemise/slip just feels too luxe to wear while binging on Flamin’ Hot Cheetos and the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
I aspire to be the kind of lady who lounges in silk La Perla slips, but like, I’m 27 and not yet a full-fledged lady… I’d likely make a mess of it with all my Cheeto crumbs.

In 2004, the arguable (mainstream) peak of the Strokes, I bought my first pair of high top Converse from Urban Outfitters.
12:51 was (and still is) my favourite song — despite being 13 and having no clue what it was about.
High top Converse were (and still are) my favourite shoes — despite being 13 and having no clue how to style them.
“Well, that was a long time ago” and I’ve finally figured out how to style my high top Converse so they don’t look like a mess…
