So if you know me, you will know that I always wear basic pieces and throw on a statement piece to complete the look. It makes getting an outfit together that much easier, and allows you to look like you didn’t try that hard to put the look together (even though you probably did). I came across this Diesel Black Gold bomber a few weeks ago and knew that this was going to be my statement piece for an outfit I had in mind. The details in the embroidery of the jacket are incredible and eye-catching, it has an edge, and that’s something I always look for in a piece like this. Something that people will stop and ask about, it makes you think.
If the temperamental nature of recent seasonal changes are confirming anything to us, it is that mother-nature truly is bi-polar. In the midst of what was expected to be the coldest winter yet, I decided to gear up to combat the cold with my latest shearling purchase (bring in the Coach shearling coat).
They usually say that you’re never fully dressed without a hat, and though I find that to be the case most days of the week, I would like to bring to everyone’s attention the power of the brooch (hold for applause). Fun fact – brooches are perhaps the oldest type of jewelry. When man first took to wearing something more than a loin cloth, there emanated the necessity of holding the cloth together.
You know that feeling you get, when you just want to put on an outfit, and feel like Yeezus? That was exactly what I was feeling when I decided to channel my inner Kanye this past weekend. I couldn’t wait to wear this outfit, reason being, when in Las Vegas a few weeks ago I FINALLY found the checkered red zip-up shirt by Fear of God. This, along with every other piece from that collection is sold out in almost every store it was stocked in!
I have a confession to make, no matter the weather, I am always a sucker for layers! I was recently in the hot hot HOT Palm Springs Desert and did exactly that, I layered! Now you must think I’m crazy, I won’t argue with you there, but I am a firm believer that I will not sacrifice the outfit due to the weather, It’s my cardinal rule in life.
