Vinyl Street Style: H&M Faux Patent Leather Pants

While attending the New York Fashion Week, I’ve noticed that influencers and trendsetters tend to gravitate a lot towards vinyl thus creating a whole vinyl street style movement. Apart from checked blazers and coats – Vinyl or PVC or however you want to call it…is all the rage now. The whole “checked trend” didn’t rub off on me, but I’ve become quite obsessed with vinyl. I always need everything vinyl, I keep buying vinyl, somebody needs to stop me. What can I say…there is just something powerful and empowering about the whole vinyl look. An added bonus is that it hugs you perfectly in all the right places. If you know what I mean. *wink, wink*

Vinyl Bodycon Dress, A Love Story

The vinyl bodycon dress a.k.a the perfect body glove. Something, I’ve actually realized that as I’m writing this. I usually don’t wear bodycon dresses, but this vinyl number is just so flattering. Funny enough, a few years ago I would probably cringe at the sight of vinyl as this particular material was something that I would never naturally gravitate towards. It’s a nature vs. nurture thing and in my case, the two aligned. Well… until recently. Growing up my mom taught me how to recognize different materials by touch. “Touch – this is what 100% cotton, this is what 100% wool and this is what 100% cashmere feels like.” Some materials were just a logical choice and shall I say – a standard. Over time, I got so good at this “little game” that now I can actually “feel my way” to the right piece of clothing in my closet, with the light turned off. True story. But really – let’s focus on vinyl again…

Book Review: ‘The Nocturnal Journal’ by Lee Crutchley

The Nocturnal JournalIt used to be the monsters under your bed, now they turned into the thoughts in your head. Since childhood, we have been struggling to sleep well. There was always that paralyzing thought of that monster that’s going to pull you under the bed. Or that suspicious shadow or ghost that might be creeping around while you’re trying to fall asleep.

The brand continues to pull inspirations from Greece and you’ll see their signature GIAPENTA blue color woven throughout the collection, a nod to the cool blue waters and iconic Santorini rooftops.

The Perfect Summer Dress and the Cutest Straw Boater Hat

I think I might’ve found the perfect summer dress. But before I get into that – what on earth is happening right now? Does everyone else feel like they have the weight of the world on their shoulders? Because, wow! Call it the Mercury Retrograde effect, call it the Solar Eclipse effect, but s**t has really hit the fan. Am I right? Been dreaming of balance. Still dreaming about happy outcomes in all sectors of life. But all I’ve been getting lately is consolation prizes, worry, and insomnia. Can a girl get a break? Gosh!

Yogi Look: One Tribe Apparel Women’s Harem Pants

TheseOne Tribe Apparel women’s harem pants are every yogi’s dream. This bohemian fashion brand brings the vibrant patterns and handmade craftsmanship of Thai boho fashion back to the west while embracing the spirit of culture and community in everything they do. Lightweight, breathable and oh so chic, these pants have been turning heads in my yoga class. They’re 100% cotton and 100% produced in Thailand. After I went through a challenging yoga class in these beauties, no other “yoga pants” will do. I’m sorry. Plus, this peacock coral and pink print is just so stunning to look at.

Book Review: ‘In a Daze Work’ by Siobhán Gallagher

In A Daze Work

How careful would you be about making choices from the moment you wake up, if you knew that hitting that snooze button was going to completely change how your day goes? “IN A DAZE WORK: A Pick-Your-Path Journey Through the Daily Grind” by Siobhán Gallagher is that book that will in a humorous way; make you reconsider all of the decisions you make by giving you different outcomes. Would you sleep a few extra minutes in the morning, if you knew that this decision would have a snowball effect? Maybe you’ll start getting ready for work later than you should. Then you’ll get stuck in a morning rush. Miss your train. Get annoyed while trying to avoid slow walkers. Till you’ve finally made it to work – LATE! You can probably already assume what would happen next.
