Weekend Inspo

I know it's only Monday buuuut I've had this Arthur Elgort photograph saved in my phone for years now, and just came across this Free People skirt which is pretty darn similar, and now - well, now one can only hope it'll ship in time for the weekend.

Complete this beyond chic yet so effortless look with She Made Me's crochet bikini and this Janessa Leone Hat (more available here). I typically despise flip flops, but with such a beachy look barely there sandals are preferred, so I'm giving these Tkees a chance (more sizes here). Not to mention I'm currently really obsessed with this cowrie and bead necklace cum anklet and it deserves the spotlight. I think this bracelet would be cool to try out as an anklet too. Let me know how it goes, Chicistanis.

Belted to Perfection

Picture via Fashion Gone Rogue

Belts have been making quite the comeback. Specifically with the remaining belt strap being looped under and through the rest of the belt, but the way this ordinary brown belt was styled is really speaking to me. So simple! Yet so cool! Plus you can probably recreate this look with things already existing in your wardrobe, not to mention this is a great day to night outfit. In the event that you do need some help recreating this look, check out these ASOS jeansJ Crew button downFree People belt.

One V Special Mugler Dress

I'm not big on dresses, especially those of the bodycon variety, but this Mugler Pre Fall one (more sizes available here) is like no other. The grommets, the sleeves, the turtleneck - they all just work really well together. 

Everyone and their mothers have been referencing decades of the past as inspiration, but I love that although Mugler signaturely has a very 80s feel, this dress has a futuristic vibe that you can't quite put your finger on. It kind of reminds of something Zenon - yes girl of the 21st century - would wear. When I shot it for Hirshleifers, I wanted to contrast the modernity of it with a very scenic, natural background, and so we did. 

For the sake of the shoot I went with Sophia Webster silver pumps, but IRL I would definitely wear this with white Stan Smiths - oh! or actually the new silver Raf ones. Not sure what occasion would call for such a look, but a girl can dream.

Instagram is such a funny, great thing. I hate on it sometimes, but the truth is, it has brought me many great things. I've met amazing people through it (which sounds really creepy but I swear its not), and even gotten jobs! Not to mention that's how I was approached for this lil interview below. I'm pretty sure I blacked out during my interview. But whatever. I don't sound too weird. Although I did mention clothing induced pimp walks... anyway, read it here. And thank you to the lovely ladies at Vogue for making one of my little girl dreams come true!
