Hi readers, I’ve missed you!
I have been so extremely busy between work, school, and travelling for so many occasions (seriously…what else is new) that I have been so absent minded with finding time to shoot new looks, and crafting content.
However, I put together this look featuring some of the favourite things I have been wearing in this current moment — trending, and unique — in a setting that is not an alley or featuring graffiti (yay)! Follow through this staple Fall look, and read the rest below…
Ripped denim, leather touches, a graphic tee, cool [mirrored] shades, and unique kicks have become my uniform at this point…oh, and I can’t forget a dope bag. I don’t believe any of these pieces have been featured in an #OOTD thus far — except for my Balenciaga bag, which you may recognize!
I purchased the bag with intention to DIY it, which I did, but I got bored with the result, and decided to give new life and concept to a bag that is now recognized as one of the most common ones on the market today. If you missed my posts on my Instagram/Snapchat stories, then stay tuned, as I have a video coming soon discussing my total inspiration and idea behind this fresh, white bag!
As for the outfit, which stays true to my #sobasic aesthetic — sorry, schoolboy problems — it features some of fav New New’s that I CAN’T stop wearing! Notedly, the bag (OBVI), these sunglasses (which were on my list for over a year), “I COULD HAVE BEEN GREAT” tee (from Untitled & Co.), leather-sleeved varsity trench (scored for 70% off!), and of course, MY NEW VELVET SNEAKERRRSSSSS.
I cannot tell you how obsessed I have been with velvet. As I saw it more relevantly used in clothing and accessories last year, my love grew. Although some may see it as a fad in current style, there’s no doubt that velvet is timelessly-cool, and not going anywhere. Designers like Saint Laurent and Gucci heavily use velvet as a core material in their collections; and as I saw its influence into other high (and low) designers last year, velvet stole my heart.
These shoes were a total impulse, but I can tell you that they have been well worth the wear (and investment) since the day I purchased them. Although it’s hard to tell in most, except in the final photo above, these sneakers vibrantly catch the light, and are a remarkable design.
