Hi hi hi everyone. So sorry I fell off the style/clothes/design blogging. I’ve been focusing on my other projects and traveling for the past year so please forgive me!
Updates to the wardrobe: I’ve been designing my own dresses, so I’m actually not buying as much as I used to. There’s something quite different about shopping for something to wear, and paying close attention to all the details of a garment because you admire the construction. Small and thin line, huge difference.
Now I usually buy things that I know I have no way in hell of making, at least not until I find a talented and dedicated seamstress (which is difficult these days, trust me!).
For example, I had my eye on this Alexander Wang Perfecto bonded coat for the past few months. It retailed at over $1K and I’d been waiting until the perfect time during sales to get it. On Saks this morning, I had it in my bag and was debating shipping it to Italy or America for a grand total of 5 minutes when it SOLD OUT! I guess there was only 1 left, and somebody grabbed it for $330 from underneath me!
So sad so sad. You snooze you lose and other cliches. However, I am in Italy and tomorrow is when the huge spring/summer sales begin at stores all across the country. I’ll be on that first bus to the Mall outlet for Balenciaga at 90% off - SEE YOU THERE!
