It’s obvious that Esprit is one of my favorite brands, judging from how it stands in the tag cloud. In fact, I already wrote about three of its earlier campaigns: the nine perfect trousers for spring, colored denim as worn in the world’s fashion capitals, and travel destination looks for summer. This time around, Esprit brings you another great style advice, featuring the ever versatile stripes. Whether you’re soaking up the sun in the Northern Hemisphere or enjoying a chilly afternoon in the Southern Hemisphere, it’s easy to create a sensation in stripes with this style guide.
High-five to all those who made Felicity a weekly habit in their younger years! The love triangle involving Felicity, Ben and Noel; the shift from pre-med to art school; the DRASTIC haircut. Love that show! (One time, I got locked out of the house and I, completely unexpected, knocked on a friend’s door late in the evening, asking if I could watch Felicity at her place. Her family was already in bed and my friend was in her PJs getting ready to do the same. It was rude and insensitive of me, but this was Felicity we were talking about!) Fast forward to the present: Felicity, I mean, Keri Russell is all grown up. She’s married and has two children. But who’s with me in saying that you can still see Felicity Porter in her style?
Liv Tyler was enchanting as Lady Arwen, the most beautiful of the last generation of High Elves in Middle-earth (Wikipedia? You bet.) But to look this good in regular clothes? Only a few can pull that off. I hereby declare Liv as the most beautiful among the sneaker-wearing race in Middle, er, on Earth.
It is Mother’s Day today in many parts of the world. As a tribute to my mother, I made a little collage showing how we would wear the same pair of jeans on an ordinary day. You see, my mom is not like any other mom. I know that every child has probably said that at least once in his or her life. But, cross my heart, my mom is really different. She wears nothing but blue jeans, flat sandals and simple shirts. I’ve seen her don a dress more or less five times in my whole life. When my sister and I were young, she would wear matching blouses and skirts, custom-made for her by a dressmaker, to our graduation and recognition rites. After each occasion, the blouse and skirt duo would never see the light of day again. She doesn’t put on jewelry, except for a modest watch. She never gave a darn about brands. She never cared about trends nor fancy clothes. Yes, she is far from fashionable, but she is always happy and confident in her own skin. Happy Mother’s Day, Mommy!!! You’re super and special like that!
Is there anything more versatile than a crisp white shirt? I guess none. It can take you from day to night, office meetings to dinner dates. Don’t know what to wear? Wear a white shirt. Don’t have time to dress up? Wear a white shirt. Easy-peasy.
The denim-on-denim trend – as you can see here, here and here – is just not happening for me. I don’t understand why it looks cool and stylish on other people yet on me, it’s terrible. Are you on the same boat? My idea to make this work: wear one piece of denim clothing with one denim or denim-like accessory. Technically, that’s still “double denim”, right?
