Since fashion month has recently departed, what is left is the layers and layers of designs/ trends that are left to dissect. What is sent down the runway each season though may not always be the most practical for IRL situations. Here’s the thing. Where matters of Céline is concerned, I turn to Zara for the look for less since spending upwards of $1500 on a top isn’t in my budget. I stick to the basics for my daily uniform including striped shirts and jackets, wide-leg pants, and sheer tops.
But sometimes all that can be a tad boring or shall we say vanilla ice cream? And I am a bit more chocolate chip mint, ya know what I mean? As far as what makes a bold statement, and what constitutes editorial gold, the subject of Chanel and bold accessories (logos, chains, et. al) always arises with a bang. When Chanel came out with these oversized speakers that are actually pearls? The Kaiser never fails to impress.
For me personally, it’s the combination of mixing high and low that pulls me out of my comfort zone, and leads me to experiment with existing pieces in my closet with the new looks that I crave.

And what about my true admiration and trying to approximate this look featuring Lindsey Wixon in the spring 2014 Chanel ads.
No? I needed red lipstick!
It seems safe to say this trend of giant pearls is just getting started. We can only hope the fashion world has an ample supply of humongous oysters from which to harvest them.
