Today I'm in a combination of gifts: the top is Chloe, it was a Christmas present. The skirt is vintage, a birthday gift from my colleagues. The boots are Zara, a just-because gift from my boyfriend after he saw me admiring them one weekend but couldn't ask him to brave the queue (note: any store on the Champs Elysées on a Sunday is never a good idea). He came home from work the next day, boots in hand. I paired the classic Chloe top – flirty, floaty, festival-ready — with a structured bottom for a contrasted look.
My Nike Cortex sneakers: I pair them with everything from high-waisted vintage jeans to black, backless onesies. I saw Eva Chen had the same pair and I'm now more motivated than ever to wear them daily. Plus, they feel like walking on clouds and who doesn't want to let their kicks be some kind of heavenly transportation device?
This past Saturday during an afternoon by the Canal Saint Martin, I found myself inside a boutique where the racks were organized around an ultra-fashionable bathtub. The environment suggested sartorial treasure, and my hunting resulted in a transitional light-blue fuzzy sweater, patterned pants and a sexier, sleeveless ribbed dress with a high neck. The shop had the right amount of Parisian charm where I wasn't shopping for breton-striped chemises but still felt a bit like Jane Birkin.
The fluffy, feathery embellishments on the Prada runway. And just recently, Rick Owens' less obvious political statement about the fact that whatever you wear on your head or over your face (read: headscarf, burqa, tiara, wig), is no different from covering up with a t-shirt or a sweatshirt.
