Self expression

I watched a few fashion documentaries recently and I have to admit that I feel pretty inspired, especially with NYFW coming up !! One of them was Iris (Apfel) and I have to say that I utterly admire her ! She definitely has balls !!!! She says she is not a pretty woman but I think that makes her extremely beautiful ! As she says, dress for yourself and remember that you can’t buy style, you possess it and it’s all about self expression and attitude ! And that has always been my motto, and I won’t say it enough !!!

Another thing I did recently was attend a launch party last Friday. The party was, let’s say, very different from what I was expecting ! The place was very small, there were a lot of people and the crowd was quite young !!! The styles were explosive and sometimes overwhelming, to say the least !! I didn’t end up staying late .. But one thing I will not forget is that there is such a thing as trying too hard !! Dress for yourself, don’t dress to impress or to prove yourself !

Now, about this look. I originally intended to wear this outfit to the launch party but opted for something a little more casual, and I’m glad I did !!! But since I really liked this look, I still wanted to share it with you ! I had planned to wear a lighter jacket but the day we shot it was pretty cold !! Therefore, a big, cozy, furry parka was needed !!! I love the mix of textures with the leather sleeves and the fur hood (all recycled) ! But the real look comes out once the jacket is out !! I played with golden accents to add some spark to the quite simple look ! The body chain from Jane Stone is delicate yet adds so much boldness to the outfit ! I paired it with a lace crop top and a sweater with an opening ! Usually the slit goes in the back, which is quite sexy (see here), but this time around, I decided to wear it backwards ! It emphasizes the lace and gold details while still keeping the look sleek and chic !

Enjoy your week my loves ! ♥
