Wrong Season Pants

IMG_9308

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.

Invest in black

IMG_9562

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

Seriously Marco

IMG_9215

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.
Get to know all about this incredible & talented maltese designer – Parascandalo Marco – here.

Second Addiction

IMG_9168

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

Back to (s)C(h)ool

IMG_8961

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

The LBD Tag

IMG_8715
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.
