I'm a sucker for jewelry. Although I don't purchase it often given its steep price (and the fact that jewelry to me is meant to celebrate special occasions), I can appreciate beautiful pieces when I see them. Case in point is the Fall 2014 campaign for Monique Pean. The pieces truly stand out against Liya Kebede's darker skin tone and white sweater. See more of the rings here.
Here I am in a typical "Jacqueline" look, which in other words means all black everything. My mind has already transitioned to fall, so I can't quite wrap my head around the 30-degree temperatures this week. Is it time to swap my blazers for thick knitwear yet? Anyway, one thing is for certain - I won't be covering up with tights for as long as I possibly can.
Lately I've been all about the preppy looks - I'm seriously plaid obsessed. Maybe back to school season is subtly making an impression on my sartorial inclinations. Regardless, I'm rediscovering the cardigan, and even though I swore to myself that I would not make another knitwear purchase for at least a few months, it seems like I will be doing just that in the near future. In an ideal world, I would gravitate towards the Acne Raya cardigan.
Anyway, happy Friday (and long weekend) to us all. This time, I have family visiting from overseas, so it will be plenty of gatherings on my end.
It seems almost meaningless to post about wool sweaters and dresses when the weather outside is the complete opposite, but I'm ready for autumn! To be honest, it never really felt like summer in Toronto. Nonetheless, I'm rather inspired by Tao Okamoto in Bergdorf Goodman's Fall 2014 catalogue. Feel free to peruse the rest here.
