sometimes i go on mnz fasts… i know if i land on that page, i’ll have to post. this very pricey laze wear makes me miss toronto. i am so looking forward on hitting some vintage shops when i go back- i could use a few beat up tri blends, a faded sweat tee, a good irish knit… the staples really. just love the mnz photos- love this model- never ceases to be so dead on.

Nili Lotan SS16- highly wearable runway

i scanned this show and immediately wondered if a. i had the materials in my wardrobe to make this happen, b. if i could achieve some of these looks with a little help from the gap, and c. deciding that the black boot is unarguably the most adaptable shoe one can have in their wardrobe- this show further proving it’s versatility, the essential bb flourishes when placed with less typical arrangements (eg. the formalish long black dress, or lightweight white boho number.) i’m all for the chino- and to answer the gap question, i try every season- each time i pull them on with hope- imagine my bragging rights when others ogle at my impossibly perfect find, then, i catch a glimpse of the unfamiliar shape my butt takes on, realizing the gap has not modernized their classic chino, it is still best paired with a merrell – this slightly cropped, drop crotch rendition, may be just the answer. also love the idea of formalizing some of these looks with some silk, sparkle, or a stiletto. but… i’ll be hitting the normcore big box stores, just to make sure they haven’t tweaked their caj wear for the shoppers of today.

when i was in greece i stayed in this house on a tiny island called hydra. upon first entrance i was filled with curiosity and awe as to how the architect built all the little nooks for living within the house. beds were built in, kitchen, sofas, from what i remember most furniture in general was part of the structure. i think it’s an interesting space solution, have seen it mostly in bench style outdoors, but i like the idea of taking it inside, a sofa in a den, a sectional in a living room, a reading nook in a bedroom, could give a space a touch of european vacation home feel- with chic casual customization.
