summer leather

Zara Hat (similar here), Topshop Tank, ELLERY Shorts, Chloe Sandals (similar here).

quit depriving yourself of leather in the summer. too hot you ask? totally not. 
the ones i'm wearing (on repeat) are from ELLERY. She's one of my favorite designers from Australia. they're a bit shorter than your average denim cutoffs, but don't worry, we're fully covered from the be-hind. now it's your turn to invest in some year round leather.

5 things

ready, set...

tropical wear, the Maldives, soft florals, bob cuts and XL brimmed hats. 
a little scattered brain, wouldn't you agree?

at minimum, do this:

1. red lips will never go out of style. (when done right)
2. invest* in a great coat. (then you don't need to worry about what goes underneath because no one can see, genius right?)
3. mary jane's back with a vengeance. (just ask the heel)

*do it now! before the F/W sales bid farewell.

Chloe FW13

The music starts and the first girl draped in a gray utilitarian cape walks down the runway. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't confused for the first sixty seconds. The models walk to music reminiscent of classic old-school hip-hop. (What?) I'm not sure what I was expecting… but the mixture of Chloe, Paris, and a hip-hop mix tape was an unexpected surprise blindsided me.   
Sweet frill with a touch of polished refinement is usually the tone at Chloe, that is, until this season. For her Fall-Winter 2013/2014 collection, Clare Waight Keller has opted for the tough schoolgirl who, apparently, has a thing for classic pinafore dresses.

In her forth collection for Chloe, the Chloe girl is edgy—in fact she’s a bit of a tomboy. Hence the showcase of Bermuda shorts, drawstring pants and billowing slacks. With an oversize bag slung around her shoulder and a gold clasp high around her left ear, her nonchalance and attitude is refreshing.

This collection consists of rich mixes of heavy fabrics, minimal ruffle and jeweled chain-fenced overlays. It is a vision of indigo and ink blues, a cool palette that matches the equally cool-girl attitude. Tomboy motifs aside, A-line skirts and pinafore dresses make their stance—and have serious rotations throughout. The collection mirrors a schoolgirl’s transformation into a lady, or in Waight Keller's words "an independent spirit." Full volume layered skirts speckled with small polka dots pull the story together, and wins me over. 

Viva la Chloe!
