Rings (again)

20130117-104836.jpg

I spoke about my current favorite trend for spring last week , piling simple thick and thin rings on all your fingers but I didn’t show you some of the rings I would do said piling with ,apart from the Balenciaga ones. I am loving Repossi jewlery collection , even though it’s sort of pricy and Margiela pieces have always been favorites. Forget what your mother told you about mixing metals and pair thick sleek rings with thin ones. You could also put one ring on each finger for a more Balenciaga-esque hand. Don’t forget to check out sites like Etsy , you can usually find lovely rings there for less .

1. Repossi black Berbère ring
2. Maison Martin Margiela double rings ( pile them on top of one another or put the smaller one on another finger)
3. RP encore Canary Bone rings

Black star

I have been on the search for a new wallet , something small I can hold everything in. I love mens folding leather wallets but that’s not very practical for change. This wallet is exactly what I’m looking for , from NYC based brand Triple L Society I stumbled upon yesterday. I love the practicality of the rubber ,the all black with a gold zipper and that it’s a pouch so I can hold cards and change. It kind of reminds me of Givenchy in the best of ways.

P.S : this website is menswear but I think bags and such are unisex anyway.

Thin

I am kind of obsessed with anything thin and dainty , especially for spring but even in winter. I love wearing “light” outfits , having pieces on that are sort of delicate and minimal. These thin strap YvesSaint-Laurent sandals would fit perfectly in my closet. There for, I absolutely need to find some replicas elsewhere.

Proenza&Denim

proenza-schouler-resort2013-runway-04_114108170470[1]I have earlier this year confessed my love for Proenza Schouler , but this for me is far more exiting than the PS1. In the search for perfect denim , I discovered this pair from Proenza Schouler.It seems like every piece Jack and Lazaro make reaches ­”it”  status and these are not any different. They have the perfect wash , the slouchy look I have beem searching for and the lenth is perfect for pairing with pumps. In the words of the infamous Rachel Zoe , I DIE.

 

I’m not done talking about basics: Bassike

Amongst super soft t-shirts in every cut possible and jeans with the perfect baggy fit I have been looking for forever , I found from the basic oasis , Bassike the perfect bathing suit. Why I am talking about swimwear in december is beyond me , but if some of you are going on vacation this holiday season then hurrah for you because I found the perfect suit. I find it hard to find unique swimwear , even more so something with a different texture or using a different fabric but still simple and basic. This two-piece is perfection , no lycra just stretchy organic cotton , and sort of a foray into the highwaist- bottom -and-bustier territory without being outdated. I absolutely need to find this in Canada by summer. Need.

The year of the T

I think if we could name a It item for 2012 , it would definitely be the T-shirt . So many brands have transformed this basic this year, fromLes plus dorés and even Celine. My recent favorites are from the brand Conflict of Interest , a brand apparently run by people who work in the industry but want to remain anonymous. Paired with a pair of black jeans or under a tux, it’s effortless cool at it’s best.

Suit up

20121211-100553.jpg

You probably know that all black everything is , well , my thing. I have worn a tuxedo in the past , but nothing as modern as this. I like this structured but effortless and less stuffy version from the Zara lookbook. This + a dark cherry lip= sucess . As always , Zara never fails to disappoint.
P.s: Maureen Rouge , the girl who takes the pictures will be posting guest edits in the near future. Mostly editorials and images that inspire her , so keep up with us!

Dasha

I have been sort of on the lookout for a fur lined leather jacket , or any kind of jacket that is fur lined. I spoke about my love for fur before , I think it is pretty much the warmest thing for our winter’s in Montreal . Although this jacket isn’t exactly winter material , with a big scarf and warm boots , I could definitely deal. In black or crème , this is going strait on my christmas list.

I found dress perfection.

We are all well aware that the holidays and creeping up on us. Personally , it’s my favorite time of the year because there are so many parties to go to and it’s okay to wear something formal. I think you guys could see this coming on , but I found the dress. Last month , I saw this dress on Elin Kling’s blogbecause it’s from her collection for Marciano and I kind of fell in love . Minimalist , black mesh and a slit near the leg , what’s not to like ?
