Blanche

Heading to the Canary islands tomorrow (or should I say tonight because the flight is literally at 6 in the morning). All I can think of is white and silver. White midi dresses, white skirts, white jumpers, blouses, you name it. I just can’t get it out of my head.

Geometric Love

by laurenlux

Help. I need all of this. Now. As you can tell, all I can think of lately is black and white (with neon accents). I am mainly in love with Alexander Wang’s new SS13 collection. Everything is geometric, structured, cut-out, and most importantly black and white. The Acne buckle boots below are also currently the apple of my eye. I ran into a friend who works at Acne the other day and he was with a girl that had them in black. I WILL hunt these down. It pains me not to have them. If I could have any outfit, it would be the below.

Parisian Inspiration

by laurenlux

My style is always inspired by the environment I’m in — whether it be Milan, Paris, London or my native home Toronto. It’s interesting how I always find myself wanting to purchase culture-prominent items depending where I am situated. For example, when I lived in Milan the apple of my eye was the Miu Miu ruffled leather hobo bag, which I got and never wore once I moved to London. I know that this was heavily influenced by the culture in Milan since I only wore it there! I actually just sold it on eBay to fund my Celine Mini Luggage purchase which you can see in some of my previous posts.

Since moving to London my style has become much more edgy/street than pretty/girly which would better suit a Miu Miu bag. When it comes to Paris, all I do is wear dresses. Here is one of my favourite Parisian inspired outfits.

Paree Mes Amis

by laurenlux

Thought I would do something a little different with this post! Here is a collage-summary of how Paris went, including some of my favourite stores/purchases. Outfit posts soon to come. Can I just say how obsessed I am with Kenzo? I finally got my hands on one of the tiger sweaters from eBay and couldn’t be happier. Rawr.

More of a lowlight, but worth mentioning that rain follows me everywhere.

Also, if you are ever in Paris it’s worth dropping by Chez Gladines – probably one of the best restaurants I have eaten at in Paris. They serve manly-sized salads like the pic shown above, and they are only 10-12 euros! This one has ham, Egg, potato, and cantal cheese. They also serve an outrageous dish composed of steak wrapped in bacon, covered in cantal cheese, covered in potato, COVERED IN GRAVY. I.e. tasty dish meets heart attack.

Fashion Weeks Wrap Up

by laurenlux

Currently writing this from St. Pancras International where I will soon be boarding a train to PAREE! I realize it may not make sense why I would be going to Paris on the last day of Paris Fashion Week. Going for pleasure rather than work though, and cannot WAIT to indulge in endless croissants starting… well… the second I get off the train. My fingers are crossed that my friend will be greeting me with one.

Here are some photos once again from the lovely Another Garcon. This was the second last day of London Fashion Week when I had the pleasure of attending Pringle of Scotland, Michael Van Der Ham, and Fashion East. After attending 6 shows (which is nothing compared to some bloggers) I was done with fashion week and decided to watch the rest via streaming.
