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.
Last Sunday Maureen and I took a few images to start off the summer right. We just headed outside and soaked up the sun near the pool . On that note , I am wishing you all an exquisite summer filled with as many adventures , mojitos and sunshine possible!

Here are a few images that inspire me at the moment , since I am getting my prom dress for next spring custom made and the design-creation-yada- yada-yada process starts in about four weeks. I know it’s very early , but I figured “hey , this is fun , pourquoi pas?” I am thinking a low back , a little Michelle Pfeiffer circa Scarface ,in black or ivory.Also , a little Rihanna and glitter never hurt anybody…
My favorite image of this week’s belated Miscellaneous is the last one from Vogue Paris, featuring Tom Ford’s jewelry collection . The one thing I possibly like more than the images of this editorial is this quote form Tom Ford :
“I am tired of the cult of youth. The cultural rejection of old age, the stigmatization of wrinkles, grey hair, of bodies furrowed by the years. I am fascinated by Diana Vreeland, Georgia O’Keeffe and Louise Bourgeois, women who have let time embrace them without ever cheating. Society today condems this, me, I celebrate it. For this session of fine jewellery, I imagined a man and a woman who had been together for a long time, faithful to each other and always incandescent with desire.”
Women are all beautiful , no matter what age , confidence is the best thing a woman could wear.
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.
Just a little peek at Anja’s S Moda El Pais editorial , my two favorite images actually. I love the fresh , soft and summery vibes these images give off . Anja just looks so elegant at the same time as being completely disheveled.She looks so calm I have really been looking to Anja for hair inspiration lately , she has that short-but-not-too-short goodness I want paired with the perfect shade of sunny blond.
Also , there will be more and more outfit shots of me , Maureen and I are trying to take images at least once a week and putting inspiration together for a baby editorial . Hopefully , the more we shoot , the less akward I get.
