All Saints | Spring 2015

allsaints1 AS2 AS3 AS4 AS5 AS6 AS7 AS8 AS9 AS10 AS11

I saw the All Saints Spring 2015 lookbook and was practically drooling over the muted color palette, variety of textures and flawless styling that was employed the perfect unexpected layering combinations and boots for days. This spring collection of classic separates was shot perfectly against the backdrop of an old airport hangar which added some editorial edge. Fringe details and selvaged necklines hit the nail on the head of my hard v soft aesthetic that I’m normally drawn towards, and the introduction of prints and lace offered that pop of femininity that I take on the side of my more andro tendencies.

When I see a shoot like this that I’m super inspired by I try and brainstorm how I can manipulate my closet into ensembles that give a similar look and feel. Playing with proportion will be key; not to mention giving stripes on stripes another shot. Maybe a an outfit that stacks a longer spring coat over a short short, or one of my more oversized tops over a lace skirt.

Playing with pattern and proportion can be weird at first, but to me those are some of the most interesting outfits out there.

Fashion Week Catchup // Wednesday-Thursday

My mind is actually blown that I’ve ended up in New York for fashion week this year. Luckily enough, I got here after much of the snow has subsided and have just been hitting pop up shops and promo parties like they are two-for-one Tuesdays in Nashville. MBFW is real, guys.

JK I’m actually wrapped up in an afghan, hair in a post-shower top knot and trying to downplay the sincerity of my late night hunger pains by aggressively clicking through every show available to me on style.com in real time. The glam factor is here, everyone.

Seriously though, there are a lot of shows and I don’t know how any normal person is supposed to keep up with them, so I thought I’d post a few of my favorites from fall/winter 2014 thus far. Here. We. Go.

Hopefully I’ll be able to keep this up so we can all benefit from being current.

“Oh my GOSH, did you see that Wildfox line? Flowers in the boots?? Kil-ler”
-Me, the next time I want to sound like an asshat I know everything when I’m out with my friends.
