While attending the New York Fashion Week, I've noticed that influencers and trendsetters tend to gravitate a lot towards vinyl thus creating a whole vinyl street style movement. Apart from checked blazers and coats - Vinyl or PVC or however you want to call it...is all the rage now. The whole "checked trend" didn't rub off on me, but I've become quite obsessed with vinyl. I always need everything vinyl, I keep buying vinyl, somebody needs to stop me. What can I say...there is just something powerful and empowering about the whole vinyl look. An added bonus is that it hugs you perfectly in all the right places. If you know what I mean. *wink, wink*
The vinyl bodycon dress a.k.a the perfect body glove. Something, I've actually realized that as I'm writing this. I usually don't wear bodycon dresses, but this vinyl number is just so flattering. Funny enough, a few years ago I would probably cringe at the sight of vinyl as this particular material was something that I would never naturally gravitate towards. It's a nature vs. nurture thing and in my case, the two aligned. Well... until recently. Growing up my mom taught me how to recognize different materials by touch. "Touch - this is what 100% cotton, this is what 100% wool and this is what 100% cashmere feels like." Some materials were just a logical choice and shall I say - a standard. Over time, I got so good at this "little game" that now I can actually "feel my way" to the right piece of clothing in my closet, with the light turned off. True story. But really - let's focus on vinyl again...
I think I might've found the perfect summer dress. But before I get into that - what on earth is happening right now? Does everyone else feel like they have the weight of the world on their shoulders? Because, wow! Call it the Mercury Retrograde effect, call it the Solar Eclipse effect, but s**t has really hit the fan. Am I right? Been dreaming of balance. Still dreaming about happy outcomes in all sectors of life. But all I've been getting lately is consolation prizes, worry, and insomnia. Can a girl get a break? Gosh!
TheseOne Tribe Apparel women's harem pants are every yogi's dream. This bohemian fashion brand brings the vibrant patterns and handmade craftsmanship of Thai boho fashion back to the west while embracing the spirit of culture and community in everything they do. Lightweight, breathable and oh so chic, these pants have been turning heads in my yoga class. They're 100% cotton and 100% produced in Thailand. After I went through a challenging yoga class in these beauties, no other "yoga pants" will do. I'm sorry. Plus, this peacock coral and pink print is just so stunning to look at.
So I've hopped on this mirrored sunglasses trend bandwagon. I've been searching the internet for a while and like a typical Virgo rising, I took a long damn time to find a perfect pair. But I think I've finally found what I was looking for in this particular pair from ILYMIX. (Will leave the link and the discount code at the bottom of the post if interested.:)) This time around I've decided to keep it very casual - still with a boho twist. You know me by now. If there is a twist to my look, it's that of a bohemian kind. Because honestly, I don't twist in many ways. Do you understand what I'm saying? Haha, me either. What I'm trying to say, lately I've been trying to simplify my bohemian look. So, I've thought - I'm going to try to create a casual boho look. Something minimal and comfortable. And this is, my friends, as minimal as I can get.
Warm weather is usually just an excuse for me to dress like a sailor because life is generally mundane as it is. Unless you’re Glen Coco. Then your life is everything but. Good for you! Can you actually believe that it’s June already? I know – me either. Can you actually believe how many times I jump from topic to topic? Me either. This time around I decided to go with a casual summer outfit idea because I’m a summer enthusiast. This has a lot of underlying context, like things with me usually do. As I’m writing this, I’m sitting at a local bakery one town over from mine, sipping on my cappuccino, even though it’s above 80 degrees Fahrenheit right now. I’m also wearing all black paired with a red lipstick. What is my life right now? Idk. I’m tired. Remind me what I’m supposed to talk about…? Oh, yeah – today’s outfit post.
Finding the perfect bohemian romper is not an easy task, but every now and then you do get lucky to come across one that you just need to get your hands on. Like that one day when I crossed paths with this beauty while browsing around at my local Mystique boutique. Yes, it was love at first sight or first try, whatever you'd like to call it. So my little bohemian heart fluttered like a bird in a gilded cage and that was it. The crochet details and the way it ties up at the front, plus the very lovely work around the waist is what got me. Next thing you know - I was swiping the plastic. (I really need the planets to stop retrograding on my financial sector of life and maybe while we're at it - make me less impulsive?) Idk.
This time around I present to you a modern 70s-inspired look. I've been into this "how to wear retro-inspired fashion" funk for a while... Trying to recreate, bring back or incorporate into my daily OOTDs some trends that were popular when I was a kid or when my parents were kids because today's fashion is less restrictive than ever. No rules, no this is how to wear this and that... All is fair in fashion...and...love. Right?
La Femme Bohème is a free spirit, a soul unbound, undefined, forever-changing. She is a wildfire. A shape-shifter. A rebel. A dreamer. Skinny-dipper. She escapes the confines of society at any cost. Her mind is heaven, her heart is fickle, her hands fidgety. She takes no directions. She follows rivers, currents, and the wind. Her soul is like the ocean. Her fingers on the pulse of life. She doesn't think about the past, present or future. She just is. She's a stargazer. Her eyes always fixed on the sky. She changes like the seasons.
