Olive + Black

alexanderwanglysslingpradaolivebackpackthpshopcuffsEvery season, we are literally inundated with hundreds of ‘It’ Accessories that we must buy buy buy! For me, this season in terms of footwear it’s this Lys Slingback from Alexander Wang. I don’t know why but I immediately associated it with a bird. Anyways, it’s sexy as shit and with most AW shoes, it’s taken a very basic silhouette and exaggerated it. Being a fan of AW shoes, I can say that you definitely get what you pay for. The Freja boots that I’ve been wearing for the last 3 years are still as relevant and wearable after all this time. Expect a real outfit of this oh-so-soon!

One of my favorite places to just walk around in Paris are the parks surrounding Le Louvre. Painstakingly manicured and seemingly always (rain or shine) beautiful; this is where we shot our final outfit during PFW for Roberto Cavalli. Something dramatic to end an incredible week n’est-ce pas?

DYSPNEA IN PARIS

I’m not sure how I stumbled upon the girls behind Dyspnea but I’m so glad I did. Here I’m wearing their Daffy top and skirt. I felt magical wearing this, riding off the high of a great fashion week and a beautiful day in Paris. It’s hard to label Dyspnea. Whimsical? Yes. Miley-branded ratchedness? Hell yes. Eccentric? Definitely. But there’s something so much more. I see a lot of clothes, but nothing quite like this before. The generous use of pom poms, the emphasis on sparkle and glitter. Pure. Magic. That’s Dyspnea in a nutshell. Also, the girls Jameen and Rachel behind the brand are the very embodiment of their clothes: young, optimistic, and definitely not of this world. So high five gals, can’t wait to see what you come up with next season!

Beijing now completed with exciting projects in the pipeline, I’m back home for a little bit–jet lag in tow. What I would do to be somewhere hot, balmy and by the water! Just a couple lost images that Quan took of me when we were in gorgeous Roatan. I think we were doing some light diving this day. When the top popped off, I’m not sure, but that’s the beauty of being in the middle of nowhere! Also, this Row backpack really has been put to good use! Hope everyone’s week is going well! xx
