Current Obsessions: Spring Essentials

fashion-illustration-by-cristina-2013-white-shirt-jeans

Do you ever think about an outfit and then you can’t get it out of your head? For example, since the weather is finally starting to look and feel like spring, I have decided to buy some basic pieces that I’ve been craving for and now I just can’t stop thinking about this outfit. It only consists of a basic white silk/satin shirt, jeans and a pair of black high heels, but it is everything I want right now.

I ticked the black stilettos after buying these Zara shoes. But the shoes weren’t a problem. The high waisted jeans seem to be though. Apparently I can’t find the right pair.

Other cravings:

1. Helmut Lang / Cropped Jeans

2. Boy by Band of Outsiders /Cuffed Canvas Pant

3. Zara / Basic Balck & White Sandals

The award shows keep coming this weekend as we are approaching the very much awaited Academy Awards! Last night, it was time for the 2013 Independent Spirit Awards and many household names of the film industry attended the event. For me, best dressed were without a doubt Chinese actresses, Ni Ni, and Kerry Washington, both in Giambattista Valli outfits. Check out more outfits below:

Eternal White: Stéphane Rolland Couture

Winter is very soon coming to an end and I am happily looking forward to spring, as are the designers. Recently, the elites presented their spring haute couture collections and obviously I had to peek at each and one of them. There was something about Stéphane Rolland’s runway looks that immediately drew my attention. The sheer simplicity and the perfect tayloring were transported into a classic minimalistic perfection that centered on the two classic antagonist colours: black and white. You can see the collection here: wwd.com.

I haven’t really covered any Parisian street style that went on during the haute couture fashion week, but Stéphane Rolland’s monochrome collection gives me the perfect reason to do so and point out the timeless vibe of white in outfits and elegant black details.

The Minimalistic Approach with Warby Parker Glasses

“I approached Cristina with a challenge – create a collage that represents you and the things that inspire you using Warby Parker eyeglasses. I love the idea of having glasses that you can tailor to a certain event or activity, based on your life, and at Warby Parker we want your glasses to reflect you and compliment your individuality and style! 

 Check out Cristina’s glasses selection for any occasion below!”

I was very happy to answer to Kaki’s proposal as I haven’t made a post on outfits in a while. Besides, I myself wear glasses from time to time, especially in college so I thought it would be a good idea to create an outfit particularly focusing on this item. Luckily glasses aren’t indispensable for me, but they’re fun and I like wearing them.

I am so very fond of minimalism, I could work out outfits of such kind all day long. For some reason, while I was putting together all these items from my favorite brands, I kept thinking about Carine Roitfeld’s style. She’s not really on my list of favorites by there are a couple of outfits she has worn that completely match my preferences. Her simple tone on tone outfits, with very little color combinations or vibrant hues, her pencil skirts and loose shirts look so great together! Here is what I am talking about: picture 1, picture 2, picture 3, picture 4 love this outfit!.
