Imitation

musing spot - fedoramusing spot - fedoramusing spot - fedoramusing spot - fedoramusing spot - fedoraIf imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then I hope Hedi Slimane is really flattered because I’m clearly imitating one of his Spring 2013 looks for Saint Laurent. Until I can afford the real thing, I’m afraid I have to turn to high street for my fashion fix. I already had all the elements for this look in my closet, except for the fedora. That’s where H&M New Icons came in. But that didn’t come easy. I searched for nearly 2 months until one of the stores put their display one on hold for me. I am really thankful, because let’s face it, the hat brings all the drama to this look.

All Black Everything
