It’s that time of the year again.Tis’ the season of hauling enormous September issues to read on the subway , trying on decadently soft camel coats even though the weather won’t be cold enough until November anyway and ingurgitating anything with a hint of pumpkin spice. Ok so maybe I am a tad early , but since we are almost the first of September , I figured I would just elaborate on what I would want to be wearing this fall now. And that’s anything plaid and/or that makes me look anything remotely similar to Daria Werbowy. Although I am not sure if I have one rebellious/cool/Daria fiber in my body , maybe I can scrounge up enough to curate the ideal Saint-Laurent grungy Parisienne aesthetic (maybe). Here’s a little inspiration straight from the good people at French , American , UK Vogue and a little bit of Zara and Saint-Laurent.
I haved to say , at the beginning I was not really feeling this look but after this springs Saint-Laurent show , I was completely taken by the X-large fedoras that floated down the runway. There is something truly chic about hiding under a wide brimmed hat , à la Brigitte Bardot ( or Erin Wasson , if you prefer) , whether you are shielding yourself from the rain or sunshine. This fall I would love to soften my quilted motorcycle jacket with a slightly oversized , taupe chapeau.
As you may or may not know , today is Wednesday and therefore , I’ve got some new miscellaneous images from you. As you may be able to tell , I really want the summertime to come quick .With less than a month of school left I can’t help wanting ice cream, a tan , wearing short shorts and just enjoying every moment of blissful weather.
All images are not mine , you can find them all on my Tumblr which is where I got them and the sources are on there .
Spring has sprung and I am trying something new here on WWWD. Wednesdays are sometimes boring , not quite close enough to the weekend but a long way from Monday . To improve this somewhat mediocre day , I want to share what’s inspiring me , what I’ve been thinking about or things I just find interesting. The chosen images are from my Tumblr , the best place for me to gather inspiration.That being said , tracing the exact source is difficult but if the images are yours please ,please let me know.
This week , it’s everything from Abby Lee’s badass Met Ball look to neon lights and swimming pools.
*note: these images are not mine , all images are on my Tumblr , I them reblogged them from various other blogs.
My ultimate makeup goal last year as to archieve the perfect cat eye and as useless as I am with makeup , I finally got it . But it always looked more fancy,Mad Men than effortless Bardot. So I got over it. Although now , the latest issue of Intermission magazine with Caroline Brasch Nielsen on the cover just convinced me that I should give it another try. This time though , bold, messy and leaving Betty Draper out of this.

Julia Nobis personifies summer in this latest editorial for Russh magazine . Contrasting beautiful gowns and Céline bejeweled sandals with the rustic with desert like set and her very natural beauty. An undone take on the most loved pieces of the season makes for perfect summer inspiration.
In the midst of a “where is my hairbrush? Where did my slipper-like flats go? Do I really need all my rings?” packing frenzy, I wanted to share with you that tonight, I am off to the land of Alexander Wang and Breakfast at Tiffany’s for a weekend of art galleries , shopping and just enjoying the spring in my favorite city. I just love how vast the city is , how there is always something new to look at ,a new street to walk down a new café to try. There really is not anything that compare’s to the invigorating energy New York has , to me it’s the perfect way to welcome spring. Here are just a few inspiring images to get me in the NY mood.
I will try to update as much as I can this weekend but until then, happy long weekend!

“We don’t vogue , we are Vogue” -Linda Evangelista
Linda , Kate , Christie and Naomi. If you could define a supermodel in four words, those would be it. Recently while watching a Vogue documentary , I re-acknowledged that there is nothing like the supers. There is just something about the walks , their caracters and the fact that they where all friends that drew people in and still does. The epitome of effortless elegance, they invented the “Model-Off-Duty” and they sort of shaped what I think is a supermodel. They have inspired us for so long and I don’t think their reign is over just yet.
P.S: Images are not mine , just found them on tumblr and such.
The only thing all white right now in Montreal is the weather since the snow has been falling in a way tourists would probably think is romantic for the past 24 hours . But when it’s been snowing since November , it gets sort of irritating when all I want to do is look as clean crisp and summery as Kati Nescher does in these images. I am not always fond of studio pictures because I think they don’t always make the pieces look as good but in this case , I think the all white set makes the clothes look even better. Kati looks so youthful and fresh in these crystal clear images , maybe because apart from wearing Alexander Wang , Comme des Garçons , Balenciaga and Givenchy ( hello , dream team!) , the bleached out color scheme makes her features more prominent. If it wasn’t clear enough , I want white in my wardrobe , not in my weather forecast!
This editorial is definitely going in my inspiration file for Sunday’s shoot with Maureen , more on that later!
I find the mixing of mediums in these images by Hunter and Gatti quite inspiring , a perfect mixture of abstract art and photography. I love the way the painting does not interfere with the photos and vice versa , they just seem to compliment and complete each other. The contrast between sheerness and opacity is very well done and the way the model’s face sort of peers through the busy painting without swallowing it is beautiful.Juxtaposing abstract painting with fashion is basically the yellow brick road to my heart.
Happy Friday , hope this inspired you for the weekend
