Plus ça change..Saturday, February 2 2013
In France there is a saying that goes “plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose” – meaning “the more things change, the more they stay the same”. Despite the uncharacteristic pop of color (neon neckwear, red legwearandorange outerwear) that happened on this side of the rainbow last week, I can’t help but return to myfavoritesartorial cocktail: graphic black ‘n white with a dash of sportiness and a side order of leather. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Except for the white wedges. The above have not been shopped clean, but rather shopped afresh. As in, I ordered a new pair because mine were looking a little tired. Also worth noting, I’mtrialingBalmain-ish hoops and embracing Balenciaga-esque non-marital band rings. So far, finding it hard to deal with the sexiness of the earrings, but the knuckle dusters help re-ajust the balance. Bon week-end les amis.
I’m wearing a silk bomber jacket by Carin Wester, a Zara sweatshirt over a Zadig et Voltaire tunisien and a very old H&M trend leather skirt(or here). The wedges are by Mango, the stack rings H&M, the hoop earringsASOS and the sequin clutch is Zara.
