ALL OF ME

Kind of rushing the writing part of this post mostly because it's 3 AM and also a little bit because I don't have much to say this week. I'm not quite sure how floral printed started making it's way into my wardrobe and I'm considering this as a phase and hoping it'll pass soon(like all good things) since it's already Autumn(no it really is and if you listen closely, you'll hear me yodeling like Rosalie Allen or at least that's what I would like to think). Currently stuck in the process of making my portfolio for fashion school and losing sleep for a night or two in that process. So if any one of you have any tips, please be kind enough to share. Any help of any kind would be much appreciated. Hope you guys are having a great week.

HOW TO PRETEND IT'S AUTUMN.

Now I have been blogging over an year and long time readers of my blog including my family and my pet gold fish(she knows how to read, don't judge) are aware of my unhealthy desideratum for cold weather.  Autumn and winter are those two seasons, really close to my heart(secondary to tea, of course), probably because October is my birthday month, then comes Halloween and then Christmas in December, these 3 months are amazing, really. So what does a person like me, who stays in a city that's pretty much summer all year around, do? I pretend. The temperature starts to fall(a little, mind you) and I try to make the most out of it by changing up my room decor, buying more candles, drink a lot of autumn/winter appropriate beverages and I watch lots of movies. That's where 'Love Actually', 'The Shop Around The Corner' and 'Serendipity' comes in. Then there are YouTube videos(Fall/Winter morning routine, makeup, room decor et cetera). I also buy a lot of coats and chunky oversized sweater to help me pretend that it's cold outside(it's not). When life gives your lemons, pretend it's an apple instead. Does that make any sense? Probably not.

ELIZABETH + JAMES SS 2015 Ready To Wear



Pictures via Style.com and Olsens Anonymous.
Elizabeth and James Spring Summer 2015 collection, influenced by subtle West Coast elements such as the vintage wooden surfboards in the background, is more about relaxed modernism. If the Fall 2014 collection was about over sized menswear and separates, relaxed trousers and slouchy turtlenecks, with an uniform vibe, the latest from these sisters for S/S 15 RTW are these 'laid back California vibe' pieces. The sportiness and feminine mood is what makes it stand out while both the elements really well-balanced together.  Definitely noteworthy are the  sheer lattice skirts, button-ups, jumpsuits and abstract palm-tree leaves print that is incorporated throughout the entire collection. While the color palette was mostly neutrals with a pop of color here and there, special mention should go the police-officer blue suit. The collection further more proved that the Olsen Twins are real designers and they really deserve all the awards they have been getting for their designs.
