i do not know about those of you out there, but my style is a mixture of about every fashion genre out there. i am a fashion scavenger i like to pick up elements of different types of style and paste them together like a collage. some days i dress gamine like, some days tom boy, other days minimal. as i have said before dressing up all depends on my mood each day….today i was more in a playful like spirit..so i dressed in character. my favorite part of this outfit is the shoes. i fell in love with these maryjane’s once i saw them in an editorial, not when i originally saw the prada fall 2012 collection. like most of prada’s collections, i never fall for them straight away, it’s normally 2 weeks after the show when i look at the collection again that i really fall for her pieces. with out fail i always end up loving nearly all of the pieces from each collection… miucci prada is one of my all time favorite designers..since hmm…1994. when i really began to fall for fashion.
speaking of fall as you can see by the photos the leaves are falling..and the grass is a beautful shade of green and complements the red sole and toe of these maryjane’s quite beautifully. i paired them with a white button down dress that i purchased over the summer in rio, brazil. i came across this dress in the shop maria bonita, whom is also the designer of this dress. her pieces were beautifully made in gorgeous fabrics and shapes, the closures were very minimal. you can see some of here beautiful clothing here. i put a ruffled sheer slip beneath the dress, making it a bit more playful and adding some texture. (a good way to change up your skirt is by adding a slip with lace trim underneath.) i added a black crew neck sweater to add warmth and a bit of color blocking.. and a motorcycle jacket.
