Feeling Myself

STOP EVERYTHING. Have you seen Beyonce and Nicki Minaj's Feeling Myself music vid yet?! You don't have Tidal? Same. Luckily for you though I searched the Internet far and wide for the only website that still has the video up. God bless you, Nylon. No amount of scrolls through Beyonce's Tumblr can compare to the actual video soooo watch it here. Like now. And on full screen (duh).

Louis Vuitton Cruise 2016

Ever since Nicolas Ghesquière joined Louis Vuitton it's been nothing but grand things for the french maison. It boggles my mind how a designer who has such a signature aesthetic can create designs that are at the same time so identifiable of someone else. That was hard to write. Not even sure it made sense, but what I'm trying to say is that new Louis Vuitton is just as much Nicolas Ghesquière as it is the good old Louis we've always known and loved. Ya feels?

Anyway, the cruise collection was - and please forgive me I hate using expressions like this but there are just no other words - to die for. Between the ambiance, the scenery, and one very drool worthy estate of Bob Hope, I was oohing and aahing all over my screen. There's a lot of greatness to digest so I think the only way to take on such a task is to break out in sections. An outline of what I loved, if you will.

Number 1 - Belts cum harnesses cum not belts at all but still cool AF.

Number 2 - The jackets, duke! The jackets! Old school biker jackets with a futuristic feel, yes please.

Number 3 - Texture play.

Number 4 - Hot pants -- er, shorts. Can we call these shorts? Obsessed either way.

Number 5 - Unconventional layering. I've been really into layering white tees underneath crop tops but this takes it to a whole other level that I most definitely want to be a part of.

Also, not to be forgotten, the petite malle handbags of the season. Insert mad heart-eyed emojis here.

Hats, Hats, Hats!

I've always made fun of my friends who wore hats of the fedora and wide-brimmed variety. Don't ask me why, but something about them is just very pretentious and deuchey to me - unless of course you're Behati Prinsloo. This is not to say I'm not a fan of them though. I've never passed up on an opportunity to try one on slash constantly entertain the idea of buying one but would I actually wear it anywhere besides the beach? The answer has always been no, but with so many recent good ones in my life I might just have to take the plunge.

The above one is from Chanel (available at Hirshleifers), and unless you've got 1300$ to blow on a pretty little chapeau, here are some other options for your buying pleasure:

Weekend Steeze

I've been slack-a-lackin hardcore on MIC and I am so sorry that I'm not allowing myself to have lunch until I post some shi. I'm not not a masochist.

I'll start off with my favorite outfit from the weekend.

It was kind of chilly during the day so I opted for this Current Elliot dark denim overalls and an old Theyskens Theory knit (figured it was my last chance for this pairing). I was kinda skeptical about the two working out together since I have an obsession with buying things a size larger than I should (re: the sweater), but I actually loved how much my sweater stuck out from the sides and what not. The overalls are great because they're perfectly slouchy, but still skinny so you don't feel like a total hick in them... or however you would feel if they weren't the most perfect fit ever. You can shop a more wallet friendly version of them here. On my feet you have the Raf Simons x Adidas collab in pink (more sizes left here) and I tied it all together with this clutch from way back when.

I wore this outfit all day long and into the night - love when this happens and you still feel adequately dressed. More stuff coming soon!
