As I mentioned last week, my love for the pink bomber was born on the day I tried on Valfré’s Mermaid jacket at Lady Petrova. Wearing it felt like a magical hug and though I fell head over heels for it, I was there to buy a dress I’d had my eye on forever so I ended up leaving the bomber behind. A week later it was sold out and I really regretted not buying it, so I started looking for an alternative.
A little while back no fashionista would ever be caught dead pairing sneakers with skirts or wearing sportswear to dinner. Oh, how times have changed! The sports luxe trend is one of the biggest this season and a lot of people are in love with it. For a super stylish way of adapting it to your everyday life, there are two items you must add to your wardrobe: the sneaker and the bomber. We’re focusing on the jacket today.
A couple of years ago my mum decided to throw a Thanksgiving lunch even though it’s not really a holiday we celebrate here in Australia or even in Brazil. Before eating, we went around the table and everyone said one thing they were grateful for. I scanned my very long mental list, and while there were many things I could have said, I ended up settling for “I’m thankful for changes, and for knowing that nothing ever stays the same”.
One of the highlights of Melissa’s new A/W ’15 collection, “Star Walker”, is the return of the collaboration with Alexandre Herchcovitch. It’s been a few years since he last designed something for the brand, but the Brazilian fashion designer is back with three amazing new styles: a cool brogue called Backless, his floral version of the Queen flat, and this stunning Flower Boot featured on today’s look.
One of my biggest fashion dilemmas is keeping things casual. It’s not something I do really well, ’cause I always seem to end up dressing up a little more than needed. For instance, take that time last year when my mum decided to celebrate her birthday at Chandon, a winery less than an hour away from Melbourne. The best laid-back look I could come up with involved a peplum top with beaded Peter Pan collar that was once featured on “The Carrie Diaries” TV series. Seriously.
