A blooming floral print is probably more spring than autumn, but with the wisp of fresh & cool air, I’ve found the perfect atmospheric temperatures to wear these trousers without turning into a sweat ball. I’m not much of a printed, floral kind, but there is something dark & opulent with this pattern which fits so well with the rest of my plain (black) wardrobe. Worn with a simple army green vest- spoiler alert: SO this season’s colour- longline blazer and brogues for a day at the office – Just the way I like it.
The outcome of what should have been a no-shopping trip to Sliema the other weekend.
*I’ll juussst try it on*- I thought – 2 minutes later I walked out of the store with this cut out jumpsuit in hand. It’s black, wide legged, a dungarees-jumpsuit hybrid, & tomboy sexy – I couldn’t just leave it hanging there, could I? it had all rightful excuses to give in, & give my credit card one meaningless swipe. Same story goes for the 6 other items I bought that day, but never mind – I like to think they’re ‘investment’ pieces which I’ll be wearing a lot this season. And which technically, I’ll have to, since maxing out my card, on my so-called shopping-ban trip. #girlproblems
He had me at the start – with a collection named ‘Seriously Black’, I knew I was going to love every piece from the pre-Christmas Edition of Parascadalo Marco’s ready-to-wear collection. Birgu was not only the setting for this intimate preview, but transpired through the dagger prints, armour like fabrics & symbols synonyms with the city. Maltese slogan tees, and that East London styling, is undoubately Marco’s signature look, and this collection was nonetheless all the above with a touch of luxe & sheer fabrics as the upcoming festive season dictates.

I must confess – I’m addicted to anything resembling the feel, look, and touch of leather. My ever-growing leather look alike wardrobe is a testament to that, and this nude
(extremely tight) pencil skirt is this season’s new comer. Comfort is not it’s forte, and I did experience involuntary penguin walking, hence the sneakers – walking in heels is not MY forte either. Nude might have been around since 2012, and not exactly this season’s fall colour, but I find it to be my best alternative to black – and that’s another addiction of mine, besides fedoras, boots, coffee, jackets, cupcakes….
Happy Weekend guys! Continue reading
With temperatures still out of the norm in Malta, this pinafore dress came to my rescue on a very busy Saturday morning. I can certainly call this the perfect outfit for a crazy morning picking out clothes for a shoot, grabbing a bite in the sunshine with friends , and rushing around like a mad man to shoot for the blog – all in a (Satur)day’s work! Trying not to pass as a school girl, I swapped the typical white shirt with a crop vest & a mega leather bag instead of a backpack.
Happy Mid-week everyone!
p.s. Thank you Chiara (my pretty sister) for sponsoring me! ;) Continue reading
Just one last tease – I promise! – before you see the fun collaboration I got in store with New Look & their cool AW’14 collection!
Watch this space!
Recycling a zero-effortless, total black outfit I wore to a more glamorous event a few weeks ago. Definitely more glamorous and less sticky than a lazy-coffee-run close to home on a humid Sunday afternoon. This combo was so effortlessly put together, I felt it couldn’t be wasted on just one occasion. It does NOT happen very often that I managed to whisk out an outfit I really like in under 2 minutes (PJ’s excluded) – and with really, I mean an outfit with, what I call, the a LBD tag – long lasting, versatile, and unquestionably helpful outfit choice in those desperate moments of need. A change of shoes & bag and I turned this cocktail worthy ensemble to a more I’m-with-the-band like situation.
