Bad Romance

Playful, dark, beautiful and badass - all in one.


Do you believe in magic

Gorgeous imagery straight from H&M's fall magazine. Anja is mesmerizing and the layers are simply fantastic. The perfect example of what great styling can do.



Seriously all kinds of fabulous in a Lanvin dress.

All in the details

I'm slightly starting to become obsessed with fur-trimmed boots and they have definitely reached must-have status in my books. I loved the details of this photo, the print of the tights paired with the sandy brown boots cuffed with fur... love.



The ease with which Frida transforms from natural beauty to fashion goddess leaves me speechless. Making logos look cool again is fashion's favorite darling doll.



Not usually a huge Dree fan, fun for some reason i kind of love this. I don't know why but i think it's fantastic lol

No dancin' today

As the weather cools, i deem it time to bust out the disco-inspired attire.

Jeans - J Brand
Belt - Marc Jacobs
Shoes - H&M

Beyond it all

Wow if anyone every reminded me of Patti Smith, it's definitely Jamie Bochert. This Hedi Slimane-shot editorial is completely arresting.

Out on the weekend

Country [badass] chic in its finest form. Seriously.


Sweet talkin'

A little boho flavor to finish off summer with a bang.

Back to the grind

I just came home from such a lovely vacation. Was over at the parental unit's for a solid 5 days, where i was able to relax, unwind and rest. Apparently, mother nature was on my side because it was sunshine and heat the entire time. I think i finally was able to get a little color on my translucent self.


Come together right now

The fact that i'm a huge fan of a preppy clean ladylike look doesn't make me any less keen on something a little more casual, which actually is a lot closer to my real life style. I think this is kind of fantastic.

Kind of newly obsessed with Marina Jamieson. I'm completely puzzled as to why she hasn't gotten more recognition... the spanish model is incredibly versatile, high fashion as much as she is commercial and has such unique features. High cheekbones, freckles, dark captivating eyes and charisma that transcends images. I'm at a loss for words.


You're going my way

Pretty much love everything about this. Wish i could see what kind of footwear she's a sportin'.


The woman i'm thinking of

As previously mentioned, i've been very much into polka dots recently. Done right, this pattern fits the mood of the season seamlessly. Mature, sophisticated, ladylike and playful all at once. This gorgeous and captivating editorial from marie claire italia features one of my favorites, Alana Zimmer.

Beautiful girl

Frida is so out of this world beautiful. With every editorial i see of her, i'm reminded of what an amazing model she is and what grand career she has ahead of her. Her doll-like features make for such young and fresh look, yet she carries off these ladylike styles with great aplomb.

Chloë demonstrates flawlessly how to sport the shearling aviator jackets we'll all be wearing come cooler weather.


Dotted line

I'm currently very much feeling large polka dots, especially printed all over a dress. Perhaps this has something to do with the current fifties rendition? I certainly think so. There's something so chic and ladylike about the pattern and it just feels so fresh in this day and age. I love this girl's sartorial conversation: a cute and girlie polka dot shift paired with casual sand-colored cowboyish boots. And i can totally relate to her untouched-up roots- ha! Times, they are a tough...


Red wine

Kasia, on my favorite models, demonstrates how chic wine-stained lips can be.

They're here

My absolute must-have shoe of the season. I've been dreaming of these from the minute i saw them trotting down the Isabel Marant runway last March.

Daria for Elle Qc, all bundled up in a toasty giant knit, looking phenomenal and making me crave a cooler temperature.


Wishing and hoping

My favorite looks from the newly released Zara look book. I pretty much need a beige cable knit sweater in my life for fall and i'm totally digging the updated 70's vibe. I also need to mention that i'm so happy they chose to keep Toni Garrn around. She just makes everything look even more fantastic.

Sunshine shining

Be warned: photo heavy post!

Stephanie and i joined forces again and had such an amazing time driving to the 'burbs last weekend on a beautiful sunday, perfect for an outdoor photo shoot. Can you believe this gorgeous place is just a 30 minute drive from the city? The day would not have been complete without our mascot, Chloe the teacup poodle (Steph's dog).
