OFF WHITE FROM HEAD TO TOE

This blurry photo is brought to by the way I've been feeling lately: groggy. My philosophy for groggy days is to do the opposite of what I want to do (wear all black, baggy clothes and hide) Instead, I wear something that forces me to pull myself outside of myself. Does that make sense?

Head to toe white in the Winter seems pretty ballsy, because every time I do it, people say "WHHHHHhaaatttt?!" 

Another tactic I use to draw attention away from my face is to wear things with points of interest that are away from my face. In this case, the sleeves and the shredded top layered underneath.

Hiding, but not hiding. What say you?

PICKING THE RIGHT BASICS :: HIGH WAISTED PANTS + CREAM SWEATER

Years ago, when I ditched all my clothes and rebuilt my wardrobe, I had days like today in mind. I knew I needed basics BUT promised myself, that I would only buy things that SPOKE TO ME.

This strategy meant that every time I went into my closet, I would only be surrounded by clothing that inspired or said something about my taste, even when I have to dress outside of my comfort zone.

STAPLES WORN : high-waisted black pant, cream sweater, black pumps, trench.

SWEATER: went with texture and dimension. Basic doesn't have to lack personality.

PANTS: something more architectural, wrapping around the waist with pleats.

PUMPS: picked a basic black pointy toe pump (from the front) but has a wooden heel!

TRENCH: this one is a classic. Probably the most traditional thing I own.

And now to conquer the world - one meeting at a time!
