Expounding on my day two outfit, featured on BlogTO last week, I will continue to dote on this getup for our shared aesthetic delight. Namely, I’d like to christen myself a Minkette thanks to Canadian online retailer, eLUXE. As part of The Luxe Panel blogger network, I get to wear pieces from eLUXE in real life – kinda like a test-drive for fashion, without the helmets. Unless, of course, we’re talking about the Helmuts. Always wear your Helmut Lang for street style safety.
This outfit was all Viviana Volpicella, as I previously mentioned, the Vogue editor is an Italian Vixen par excellence – I don’t know how old she is (ADR contemporary for sure) but she still manages a decent arm party, clutching a perennial Malbroro light in between her fingers. As I wrote, “My forest green, Rebecca Minkoff Mini M.A.C. is a playful splash, giving the impression that I grabbed it on my way out in a rush and it just-so-happened to work. An accidental fashion decision that was secretly premeditated.” I am a firm believer that your bag must clash – not match – your outfit in order to get the look just right. Also, imitation is futile when a little bad taste is involved. All hail Diana Vreeland! I’d like to believe she’s the kind of lady who would’ve chosen a forest green bag to offset this outfit, too.
And yes, let’s address the elephant in the room: I’ve taken to quoting myself. The vanity is real.
My blue aplaca Sentaler coat finally makes an appearance!
