Light of Dawn


Forever 21 shirt and vest, Ksubi shorts, Isabel Marant boots (here), Alexander Wang bag (here), Céline sunglasses

Sitting atop, beside, everywhere around sun soaked stone surfaces while just thinking about things. Doubling on the shimmering white sun-ray-repelling separates is fitting for the occasion. These particular shades of stone remind me of those of the massive limestone fortresses I saw when I was in Dubrovnik, you know the ones with retired canons stationed strategically, aiming at the ocean toward nothing.

Navy and Gold


Abercrombie and Fitch dress (here), Sergio Rossi shoes, Louis Vuitton bag, Céline sunglasses

Bringing back A&F from junior high days. I'm not sure why people I know went from wearing this label to the ground to now keeping away from it entirely, but I don't think I can ever let go of their super soft pure cotton things and perfect everyday basics. I leveled up this navy skater style dress by pulling off the giant, obnoxious school girl bow around the waist and instead belting it with the gold chain thing I got from Istanbul. Sealed in the gold correlation with my Arty ring I wear too much lately and treasured vintage gold bangles.

Renaissance Girl


Forever 21 top, Thakoon shorts, Lanvin python pumps (here), YSL ring

Another day playing the piano, the usual Chopin's Nocturne in c# minor. I refuse to play anything else. That's probably the reason why my piano teacher yells at me sometimes, for not practicing other pieces. She would definitely disapprove of all these seating positions on the stool. Let alone banging on the keys with snakeskin heels. That intricate ceramic pot on the piano I bought in Kusadasi contributes to the intense 14th century European Renaissance theme I tried to pull off. Meanwhile, I wore metallic edged shorts with a top that evokes fishing nets, which also kind of makes me a mermaid. I anchored in all the ethereal goldenness with ombre python wooden platforms by Lanvin that include belted ankle straps and a metal heel encased within the clearness of another translucent heel.
Super complicated dream shoes.

Arose from Her Couch of Snows


Theyskens' Theory jacket and pants, Alexander Wang shirt, Balenciaga clutch, Christian Louboutin heels

Carrying over the white on white pantsuit through the fall and winter and probably way beyond that seems like a prospective idea right now. I can't say I held the clutch upside down on purpose. Not a bad idea for a change though. This wispy, meshy net of a shirt with its almost awkward  leather cuffs and collar confuses me more every time I put it on. What does Alexander Wang expect me to do with this thing? I guess just that.

I'm Going to that Corner There and Turn


Forever 21 shirt and vest, Alexander Wang shorts, Roger Vivier bag (Prismick), Prada shoes

It's an illusion, this pairing of a white shirt and sleeveless tux vest. This is the best way I know to trick people into thinking you're wearing a white blazer without sacrificing sheer sleeves that give the feeling of nothingness against the skin. Two pieces are better than one. I know I have been wearing copious amounts of black and white lately because I have always loved that and this season is highly focused on black on black, white on white, black on white, white on black. Permutations. Also, sartorial architecture in the form of perfectly structured and sharply tailored jackets over white shirts with slim cropped pants, all things with the potential to merge with menswear but have pretty, feminine details to prevent them from doing so. Things I don't think I can ever get sick of.
