FISHNET TIGHTS AND SMITHBILT HAT
My calm patience is running out and I feel myself very exhausted without something beautiful and aesthetically pleasing around me. For the last year or so I’m surrounded by shorts and flip-flops no matter where I look. And thats the sad reality that one has to accept when decided to live in a hot, tropical climate. Please don’t get me wrong, we ARE here because of the weather, because we wanted to live in warm. What I didn’t expect is how ignorant people are about their look and visual self expression here. And today a fashion rebel inside of me couldn’t take it anymore. It decides that it’s time to destroy the burdens of 24/7 leggings and sneakers, oversized tees and sagging pants! Lets, at least for a day, feel ourselves better and prettier. By doing so, we will see how world around us is changing to a better too. To achieve this not an easy task, I’ve prepared several very special helpers. Each of them radiates happiness, upscale level of self expression and actually is a stand alone fashion icon by itself. Please welcome my contemporary variation of a noble and aristocratic look, featuring Smithbilt hats, Emilio Cavallini tights and a timeless Dior Lady Dior bag, in gorgeous pink color. Wearing my C/MEO Collective coat as a dress, added more spring style feel to my look. Enjoy!
ARISTOCRATIC LOOK AS A STATE OF MIND
Since I remember myself experimenting with my personal wardrobe, I was always trying to look a bit different then the rest of my friends. And of course not in a weird or foolish way by coloring hair in green or wearing absurd looking stuff, no! I’m saying about small details in a regular daily outfit, that helped it get more aristocratic look.
Being a teenager I couldn’t afford myself having things like Dior Lady Dior bag, or one of Smithbilt hats for example. But still, I did everything I could to add small upscale touches to my everyday wardrobe essentials of that time. And what is even more important, I had a very specific list of items not to wear and include in my aristocratic look of that time.
Becoming older, my feeling of taste evolved and became more sophisticated. And those who sometimes didn’t understand and considered some of my accessories or wardrobe item as funny, started to ask me for a personal look advice. I knew I was moving in a right direction. Another beautiful thing is that I love what I do, it makes me happy. And when my ideas of aristocratic look can be found as useful by others, it will fulfill my another dream, helping people change to better.
