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.

these images are all from nili lotan’s pre fall 2015 collection. i keep gravitating toward her sweaters (seen them at tnt and augustina in T.O.) just so happens the looks were styled with two of my fave sneakers, GGDB, and common projects for women. the pure sophistication of the israeli, NY based designer is reflected in her simple, delightfully cozy attire. aside from her sweaters i also love her bohemian easy shirts, and beach coverups. below are some selects from lotan’s website.


p.s. is it styling plagiary if i wear a silk skirt with beat up sneakers and a slightly chunky knit sweater? consider this my sourcing it.
