When Topshop Boutique releases a new collection, I’m there the next day. There’s always that one piece that is just too good to miss out on, and trust me, I’ve learned from experience. Let me tell you about the most perfect navy blue coat that I hesitated to buy, and was sold out when I went back for it. You may remember it from Topshop Boutique, it had cut outs on the elbows and was so simple but oh so good. So lesson learned – when I spotted this silk checked dress (totally see-through but that’s ok, just wear a slip) I went home with it. It may not look it, but this dress is really versatile and can transition to every season.
Besides the obvious Met Gala #influence, I’ve been feeling plaidtastic lately with a little help from friends like Dries, Lim, and Marni. I’ve given you an assortment of designers above, but of course I know we can’t all walk around in head-to-toe Dries Van Noten (including me) so check sites like Zara, Topshop, and Asos for more affordable pieces.
