All Black Everything

The Cut

musing spotThis weekend I got a new haircut. I’ve been thinking about doing it for a while and finally went for it. The inspiration was Daria Werbowy’s style seen here. I don’t spend much time on my hair, so I like the the low-maintenance aspect of this cut. Plus it’s perfect for spring and summer.

DETAILS: sunglasses: American Eagle; T-shirt: Zara

Plaid

plaidplaidplaidplaidplaidIf you notice any resemblance of Dries Van Noten’s Spring 2013 collection in this look, you are not mistaken. That was one of my favorite collections. I loved the combination of masculine plaid shirts with feminine embellished skirts. Of course, my shirt is not organza and my skirt is not heavily embroidered, but the spirit of that collection is there. At least, I hope so.

DETAILS: shirt: Old Navy; skirt: H&M (old); glasses: American Eagle; boots: Nine West (old); necklace: real chain from hardware store; nail polish: H&M (Lady Luck)

I Got Stripes

Friending Mickey

This past weekend was an exception, as you can see. I couldn’t resist the classic Mickey illustration. I also like the  sporty feel of the distressed letters and number, combined with the stripes on the sleeves. Yup, Mickey is here to stay. Check out how he inspired Marc Jacobs’ Spring 2013 collection here.
