Recently, most of my vacations have been spent in California.
There are a lot of reasons that this new ~vibe~ started, but the biggest…
The location… duh.
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?
To me, white denim = preppy.
… and not in a good ironic-preppy Vampire Weekend way.
… but off-white denim?
You guys voted on Instagram… and I bought it.
The overwhelming majority of you said you wanted a review on Acne Studio’s jean shorts and I am so glad.
… you guys were right — these shorts are surprisingly great.
My first & only pair of Acne Studios jeans were bought at the height of my Sofia Coppola obsession in 2010 on The Outnet. They were super ill-fitting, but if they were a Coppola favourite, so be it.
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.
First impression: it’s short.
Second impression: it’s really short.
Third impression: it’s perfect.
Their description of the skirt?
Very stiff canvas that wears in over time. Very short cut, slightly flared. High waist.
That perfect white (or black) t-shirt… the ultimate foundation for a perfect outfit.
I briefly tried Reformation’s basic t-shirts… but they failed to impress.
With Jéan kinda came out of nowhere in 2017 and took the Instagram fashion world by surprised.
You’ve seen their dresses on just about every ~influencer~ and model you’d ever have time to follow…
Aimee Song, Martha Hunt, Natasha Oakley, the list goes on.
… but we’ve all seen those “I ordered a dress I saw on Instagram and got a toddler size dress instead” kind of memes and don’t wanna be the girl that made a $$$ mistake.
After the lightly disappointing Naomi skirt, I took a break from Réalisation Par.
… and then my eBay alert dinged: the Kate dress in red polka dot was just listed.
There’s something so sweetly and slightly seductive about a white dress with red polka dots. I’ve been trying to find the Kate dress and Rouje’s Gabin in white with red polka dots, but hadn’t had any luck.
