Pont Alexandre

Yes the iconic Pont Alexandre III. Why can’t our bridges look like this? Haha. The view, spectacular. The history–even better. The photos, always magical. Luckily for us, the Chloe show (that I missed–thank you Paris traffic) was literally a stone throw’s a way. It was a nice reprieve from the mayhem of that day…and really turned out for the best. And this outfit though! Thank you to Whistles who always dresses me insanely well! I wasn’t joking when I mentioned on Instagram that my wardrobe was slowly becoming all-lilac!

A quickie post wearing another Masha Ma piece. The cool geometric shape is actually the MA logo–très cool non? There’s something a little retro about it that really speaks to me. To tone down the dramatic top, I decided to pair it with probably the most deconstructed piece I own, these awesome Junya Watanabe shorts.

If it’s not already apparent on my instagram from this last PFW, I am a huge fan and admirer of Chinese, Paris-based designer Masha Ma. Her vision for her brand and the MA girl is centered on strength, edge, and aversion to anything status quo. The clothes: strong, modern, sleek. On the body: like a glove. So what is the face of New China and who is she?–a question often asked around these circles–Masha’s answer: she’s edgy, a little bad ass, and above all international. Sounds like my kinda girl!

Back to Grey

How many times will I post an all grey outfit? Too many, but it works! I’m in love with anything heather grey and for all you tanned honeys like me, this is really the perfect color for our skin tone. It’s also very casual but luxurious at the same time–my EXACT MO! Here again is a bit of a high-low mix, of very affordable essentials from THPSHOP.CO and my other standstill Alexander Wang.
