Super Normal Super Models





All images via W Magazine

What an awesome editorial I came across on W Magazine’s! Super Normal Super Models stood out against the usual ‘no normal person can pull this off’ thoughts we readers feel every time we open up a magazine. I don’t know the real value of these clothes, but at least they look somewhat normal and what I personally would be happy to wear everyday (flannel, mini skirts, leather jackets, Dr. Martens anyone?) Enlisted models included Kate Moss, Daria Werbowy, Lara Stone, Amanda Murphy, and Raquel Zimmermann. Those legs! The flawless faces! The perfectly tossed hair! Ok, maybe this is not so normal after all, but the after school bad ass vibe of the whole spread is something worthy of taking notes for inspirational outfits that I could possibly, as a normal person, pull off.

Length Matters

Brandy Melville top, Urban Outfitters flannel, Textile by Elizabeth and James Cooper pants, Zara sandals

Kid you not, I got this flannel because of its perfect length when tied on my waist. Laugh as you may, but tied too short (my current flannel) makes it look stumpy, and too long makes it look like you’ve got a rag dragging behind. Keep laughing as you may, flannels have not only survived in fashion for decades, serve as a clothing piece, and now also as an accessory. Of course, the extended length is great too worn regularly as a tunic. Win-Win.

The waterfall tunic from Urban Outfitters is a style that they always carry and comes in different prints and colors. Super soft and drapey, it is regularly retailed at $58, but seem to always have one or more colors on sale. I waited a bit and got this one for $19.99, so try to wait for yours to save some money (to buy multiple colors?)

Oh, and I need to give a notable mention to the Zara sandals I got on clearance for $19.99 (down from $79.99 after two price reductions). I’ve been trekking around town in them since they’re so convenient and I love the exaggerated big buckles!

New Discovery Part 2

Wood Wood Dress, Converse sneakers

Wood Wood is a boutique that we planned on visiting in Europe. To my pleasant surprise, there was a clearance going on which resulted in this purchase. Merely minutes upon stepping into the store I was already reminded of Opening Ceremony with its similar interior decor and brands it carries; and like OC, it has its own private label named after the store name. This Wood Wood dress at 50% off provides the relaxed fit that I tend to be drawn to with some funky color blocking via stripes. Gonna try it tucked in some ripped denim shorts next time.

New Discovery

& Other Stories dress and loafers

There’s never enough time to shop, and this seemed especially apparent as I tried my best to rummage through as many boutiques as possible during my limited time in Europe. The greatest discovery was  & Other Stories. Owned by H&M Group (who owns H&M and COS), the brand was launched a year ago in Europe and will be available to the US via its first store in New York and online (they currently do not ship to the US). Feminine with a bit of an edge (think printed dresses, chunky knits, comfy jumpsuits), the quality of its products are great, and prices fairly affordable. I’m wearing a dress and loafers I got on my trip, and I can’t wait till the end of the year when I’m able to purchase online!

Lady in Red

Zara shirtdress and buckle slippers

First week back from Europe and already feeling the inevitable withdrawals from bike rides, effortless chic women, and the general laid back vibe. I’m still organizing the pictures and will do a Euro trip photo diary on the blog when they’re ready. Weekends already feel short and the first weekend back was over in a blink of an eye. On Sunday I relaxed in some Zara sale finds I purchased before I left for the trip, and already looking forward to the next weekend!
