I call this aesthetic “art school grandma”. And yes, it works incredibly well. Special shout out to the contrast-stiched denim. Thank you Low Classic for always bringing something fresh and girly to the table.

Turtlenecks are a part of my daily wardrobe these days. They’re classic and feminine, and are super warm so they make great substitutes for scarves. Turtlenecks are also a huge trend item at the moment, and have been for a few seasons (part and parcel of the whole 70s trend). I’m still not sure if something this simple and cozy could really be a trend item, but who even cares because it looks great on everybody and goes with everything.

Most people don’t know this about me: I have one split earlobe. As a young’un starting out in university, I harboured an unhealthy obsession with big, colourful ear baubles. So fervent was my devotion, I didn’t even notice when my left earlobe eventually gave out from years of daily wear. After that I vowed to only wear teeny tiny studs….that is, until now.
But of course the oversized earrings that have caught my attention lately aren’t anything like the tacky pieces I wore nearly a decade ago. Being older and wiser and with better taste, nowadays I prefer bold, minimal pieces in solid gold or silver. Céline is perhaps the most well-known dealer of these notice-me accessories. Lucky for us more modestly-salaried individuals, you can buy really beautiful knock-offs from, where else, Zara. They’re the tear-dropped beauties 5th from the top, and although these are much too heavy and ostentatious for daily wear, they’re ideal for the occasional holiday party. You see? I did learn an important lesson from this after all.
