I had so much fun creating this post for Avenue 32. It reminded my of what I love about blogging. The thrill of finding a new online boutique and bookmarking everything you love. Creating little style collages like this one with your picks and other items you’ve been craving. I’ve been so caught up in being a full-time blogger and projects that I haven’t been having any fun…which hello that’s supposed to be the point of this blog for me.
I hope you guys like this collage and my picks as much as I liked creating it. There’s not too much color as I’ve still been very drawn to monochromatic dressing or greys lately. Grey is supposed to be “on trend” this season or whatever. I was rereading an old interview with one of my favorite artists FKA Twigs. She talks about how she doesn’t use color too much in her videos and if she does she likes the contrast to be quite high and that she likes the color red.
I like the color red; I think it’s a really lucky color. When I’m thinking about artwork I always like there to be a bit of red in it. I think it’s a winner’s color.
I think maybe that played a bit subconsciously into my decision to incorporate the red draped pocket trousers into this set. Plus the color combination/silhouette the look will create speaks to me. Carmen Sandiego vibes. Crisp white shirts are always a good thing and I like the metal detail at the collar of this one. Also loving that it’s sleeveless because it’s warm here during the day still. We only get sweater weather on some nights. Avenue 32 has a lot of awesome 3.1 Phillip Lim pieces and colorways I haven’t seen anywhere else. Kudos to their buyer.
