|The Fashion Club shirt, Nars Optimal Brightening serum, Margiela 'Tabi' boots, 3x1 x The Line jeans|
This is basically my uniform at the current moment. Basics with a twist. Indigo denim is the only type of denim I want to wear these days - I prefer ones with a contrasting yellow/ gold stitch to get that classic selvedge look (with or without the actual rawness). The last time I was at the Nars store on Melrose, I was given a sample of this amazing serum concentrate; I like to mix it with my moisturizer in the morning before applying my BB cream for that extra bit of glow. People have gone out of the way to point out my good skin with this product. I hardly ever wear foundation anymore.
We all love Juergen Teller, but have you heard of Zoe Ghertner? Based in Los Angeles (a rarity), this photographer is one of my latest discoveries while browsing for creative direction inspiration. She has shot wonderful campaigns for Dior, Chanel, Hermes, and of course, Céline. Unlike Juergen, she has a thing for clean digital, and so do I...
|Aesop Geranium Body Scrub and Balm|
I've been meaning to check out the brand Aesop for awhile, but just like all brands with a vast amount of product, I needed a proper introduction. Actually, it's kind of like dating, whereby first you disclose your basic background information (Capricorn), your best traits (dry sense of humor, not a vegan), before you get down to the really important business... what you smell like. And the answer to that is - Geranium. Or the best way to describe my new favorite body range: "like a spa."
And just like dating, now that I've committed to these products, I've also purchased a Saxton copper footed bowl to place them in. You know... to show off what I got. ;)

I love crisp, white shirting and irreverent details like a perfectly sliced pair of jeans (love these from Storets !), or some lug, zip boots. I'm so so happy with how the sleeves came out. They are hand knit and super comfortable. Now, but some much needed sauna and sleep...
|Saint Laurent 'Cat' bootie|
Loving a bit of the nostalgia for the lace-up boot - re-conceived for a super chic, modern women with a low heel, extra thin laces, and shiny patent. It's a little punk but ridiculously casual. And that's probably why I like it. My next boot purchase, for sure.

Presenting The Fashion Club 2014 shirting collection. We will have more styles coming in through out the weeks/ months/ year (!) but mostly excited because TFC has really found its voice this year, worked out all the kinks, and is ready to make some noise. I've learned a lot of lessons the hard way, mostly just to depend on yourself, work with what you got, and make the best product you possibly can - don't compromise.
This season, I was inspired by my upbringing, and although a full collection is in the works, I believe the market is so oversaturated right now that it's best to start off what we do best - amazing tailored shirting. Sea island cotton, silk chiffon, and extra thick, and luxurious silk georgette were the materials for this collection. A mix of my grunge punk adolescence and futile adult attempts at assimilating to a corporate ruled society. Everything is a play on the classic white shirt, subverting its traditional notion while keeping everything nice and uncomfortably clean.
When I was a teenager I used to save all my pennies to buy a shirt from these young designer labels still in their infancy. Now those labels are Raf Simons and Preen. And what I mean is... support young design and they'll impress you.
