Today I’m giving you a peek of my week as an unapologetic fashionista. The
showing off posing of the innards of my curated closet is as close to wearing what I adore without stopping by for coffee. Making use of yet another great iPhone app aptly named Diptic, probably after dipshit, I made a frame of my outfits, including some vintage, to create a cookbook of fashion recipes of “what I wore when” so I don’t lose track.
What’s to be learned from this technological tapestry? Blue jeans, in every configuration, have been showing signs of a return to the forefront of my closet with no hint of migrating back to the crevices where they once resided. Can you tell that the vest on the top left is ripped to shreds? Well, it is and they are often sold this way. It may be therapeutic to work out your inner aggression by creating your own rips DIY style, but for us lazies, the folks at D&G and Isabel Marant do the distressed cropped boyfriend rips-in just-the-right-places thing just fine. No scissors required. Zara printed trousers are having a moment or two. Major bright neon accessories have and always will be my weakness and is an essential way to liven up the vintage threads that you just can’t part with. (See Vince corduroy jean jacket (bottom left) similar to the Christopher Kane neon cropped number.) And just to add the final zipedee doo da to those wardrobe basics, I couldn’t resist posting about these white Givenchy embellished shoes that I wrote about here. Within the copious confines of my closet, it’s the statement pieces that I go back to year after year that have lasting power. Sometimes its OK to go big. What hidden gems are lurking in your closet?
