Igloo Weather

IMG_8464

When a male penguin falls in love with a female penguin, he searches the entire beach to find the perfect pebble to present to her. When he finally finds it, he waddles over and places the pebble right in front of her. If the pebble is accepted they are mates for life.

Let’s waddle together, flipper in flipper.

Summer Stripes- Shorts Edition

_74A2084low Shorts to love, shorts to keep, shorts to show off. 

From crop tops, blazers and sneakers in the morning to buttoned up collar shirts and pumps to easily take you to evening (and thus way better entertainment options), shorts are not to be kept hidden away in your closet. On the contrary; pull them out, style them up a million different ways (those high waisted options are really chameleons) and enjoy a walk or two, or better even a few dancing moves. You don’t suppose you’re gonna just sit wearing those, right?

Just remember to keep those legs soft and shiny (my favorite product is Benefit’s Bathina)!

Feminine, stand out and pretty easy to wear the maxi skirt is something a womans closet ought not to be missing. For day or night, with sandals or wedges, pair it with a sweater for casual cool or a bustier for a pin up touch and feel seductive as hell as you walk by and your skirt flows against the wind.

In the unfortunate event of a non windy ambient, try dancing for similar – if not way better- results.

Tried and tested.

Bows Over Bros

IMG_7245

Not your every day Hello Kitty bows, girly yes but on a bare back. Do the math. 

As for the boyfriend jeans, they do make you feel thinner, look thinner AND you can stash pretty much anything in those pockets (tried and tested). Givenchy anything does not need justification (“bury me in Givenchy” could easily do as my last words), so just add a pair of cat eye sunglasses (if you can do the cat eye make up even better) and go. Go go go.

A helium balloon would be nice, too.

Too pure to be pink

IMG_6414

Frenchy: Doody, how do I look?

Doody: Like a beautiful blonde pineapple!

Rizzo: [singing] I don’t steal and I don’t lie / But I can feel and I can cry / A fact I bet you never knew / But to cry in front of you / That’s the worst thing I could do.

Danny: Uh, I’m not very hungry; just gimme a double Polar Burger wit’ everything and a cherry soda wit’ chocolate ice cream.

Danny: [singing] I got chills / They’re multiplyin’ / And I’m losing control / Cause the power you’re supplying / It’s electrifyin’.

Frenchy: What do you guys think of Sandy? Do you think we can let her into the Pink Ladies?

Rizzo: Nah, she looks to pure to be pink!

Cause the outfit might be grey but my heart is pinker than this wall.

Today I’m a snowflake

IMG_6279

Not so much a case of hibernation (the opposite actually, I was running on 4 hours of sleep per day), paracetamol AND Red Bull in hand (do not try it) and almost sartorial delusions, catching up on deadlines, new projects and a whole bunch of pretty exciting stuff. I really hope you enjoyed the hiatus cause it’s over. I’m back, sleep deprived, happily tired, more white and colder than ever. As a snowflake.

Beachbum Winter Edition

IMG_3853

We may lack in beaches at the (cold) moment but as far as idling is concerned I’m 100% there. Fully supportive of the habitual loafing, beachbum is a state of mind. Which I proudly possess. So I take my carefree mental state and move from the beach to the chalet (could be a shed too).

Problem solved.

Pom Poms are a knits best friends

IMG_3751

If you ARE going to wear a chunky, oversized knit and find the courage 1.to take pictures of yourself and 2. glance at those pictures looking like you’ve instantly gained 10 pounds, then the least you can do is add a playful touch to this sartorial nightmare (summer lovers united) to make heavy winter a tad more bearable. It’s all in the details and everything (at least closet-wise) has a soft (romantic?) side, so pair your long sweaters with pom poms, your masculine coats with satin shorts and your studded biker jackets with pink (anything).

We will make it through, I promise.

Ode to chocolate

IMG_3505

And oversized coats. Especially when they color match.

Had to restrain myself for devouring the whole block (at least until the shoot was over) of this lightweight, cocoa filled piece of heaven that very intentionally coordinates with the statement piece of this post, the square shoulder coat.

The main reason these 2 are (tactfully?) combined here is simple as math, one leads to another aka if I don’t stop consuming all the cocoa tree beans this earth has ever produced, chances are (all of them) that I will only be fitting oversized coats. I might grab a pair or two beforehand just in case, right?

Coats come and go, chocolate is forever. I love you chocolate. Faithfully yours, Filio

That’s all.

Yellow Riding Hood

IMG_3004I’m fairly certain Red Riding Hood is sick and tired of red by now, so here’s a modern version of the much talked about outfit, especially dedicated to her. She’s been through a lot, we owe her this much.

Swap your trustworthy statement coat with a similar alternative, the hood is mandatory, yellow being the prominent choice, to lure in potential strangers, stalkers, perverts (aka wolves). Ditch your comfy sweater, hoodie, warm top for a perforated leather one and get ready to receive compliments from all forest creatures. As for the bottom, shorts are your go to solution, you’ve got to show off those legs while you can! Keep your footwear on the flat side, you know too well that you WILL NEED to run at some point, so avoid heels but embrace fur. If it’s wolves fur the better.

And enjoy the (forest) ride.
