Is it just me or have coats always looked so beautiful?
If you’ve had a conversation with me in the past month, you would know exactly how obsessed I am about coats. Actually, obsessed might not even be strong enough of a word to describe this infatuation.
My eyes have never been so drawn to this fall/winter essential in the past. However, with my days on a Canada Goose-filled campus behind me, I have officially entered into this world where I no longer need to be bundled up in a heavy-duty down coat. With street style stars of London Fashion Week as my inspiration and colourful coats taking over decorated shop windows, e-commerce sites and editorial spreads, the options are endless.
While some may argue I have more than enough coats to last me this season (but then again, I was the girl who lived to tell the tale of that year when I tackled the harsh winter with a rain jacket and two sweaters alone), it doesn’t stop them from calling out to me as I walk past store after store. From coats that are more or less within my unpaid internship budget to my holy grail, I’m counting down my top 10 picks of the season (and reasons why!), one coat at a time.
Promising my friend that we would take pictures together when we reunited, we turned a Thanksgiving dinner into an indoor impromptu photo shoot. While the parents were conversing and the kids were watching tv, us two misfits took our cameras and went wild.
I’ve known Wayne since forever. And when I mean forever, I do mean it. He is actually the one who brought me into this world of fashion, by first introducing to me one of my favourite blogs: The Sartorialist. Since then, I’ve been addicted to street style photography. I am just mesmerized by the creations that people all around the world can create by mixing basic and treasured pieces to make it their own unique style.
Wasn’t really planning to make this photo shoot into a post, but how could I have passed the opportunity to take detailed shots of some of Wayne’s pieces.
Falling in love with this vest all over again. If only it came in a smaller size…I would totally rock it.
Since we have Style Muses for our lovely female friends, it only makes sense to have a gentleman’s division to inspire our male readers out there. So let us introduce to you our exciting and newest segment: Dapper Gents.
Even though we are naturally drawn to ladies’ fashion to get some fresh ideas for ourselves or just to admire (more the latter), we love to also look at men’s fashion for inspiration sake.
So meet our first dapper gent and friend, Kevin. He was actually one of the few who introduced me to the world of street style blogs including my current favourite blogger of all time, Garance Doré.
Getting ready for the cooler season, Kevin has put together a look perfect for the fall. Love the way he put together basic fall pieces and personalized it with accessories.
Hope you like his style as much as we do! Cannot wait to have him on our blog again soon!
