When I don’t know what to wear, but my closet is actually bursting, I know it’s time to get some inspiration: This time I got it from Craig Arend’s blog “altamira: models off duty“.

Inspiration 1: Where should I start? OK, this girl has a fantastic leather jacket and an equally fantastic leather belt, which I both don’t have. But the inspiration I take from this pic is: DO combine heavy accessories with light fabrics! (Oh, and by the way: her sunnies remind me of those fabulous Daddy B shades by Oliver Peoples I’ve tried on recently and didn’t buy because they’re freakin’ expensive. Now I’m seriously reconsidering…)

Inspiration 2: Stop wearing boyfriend jeans all the time, but DO wear more skinny jeans. DO wear your new ACNE blazer and combine it with anything, no matter the colour and the fabric. And go for black booties and a big bag next time you come across anything similar – they add instant coolness. (And leave your Havaiannas at home.) But besides – isn’t she gorgeous? Her hair, her skin tone, the dyed eye brows…

Inspiration 3: Kristen McMenamy. Style icon. I don’t know what she’s wearing here and why. And is this black and white thing body-colour or a zebra top (she’d just done the Louis Vuitton show I believe). A green bra and black layer over layer over layer… It really doesn’t matter, because: It’s all about the attitude! No matter what you wear, DO wear it with an attitude! DO it!



  1. I believe the zebra top is actually body paint!

  2. Is this Kristen? She does carry herself with marvellous attitude. I sometimes wish I’d get out of my skinny jeans, blazer uniform, but it’s just such a no-brainer and SO EASY.

  3. SO true. absolutely great advice. awesome images, too.
    as for skinny jeans, i’ve found the best way to wear them is buy legging jeans and side up one. they’ll be stretchy but still fitted- NOT tight or binding. works well for me.
    and thank you for your excellent suggestion re: my black leather straight-cut pants. i’m having my tailor make them skinny! xo

  4. The girl in second pic looks amazing…and reminds me of my friend. Love how she carries off the adrogynous look but still manages to look feminine. Great blazer and glorious long legs!

  5. I like the first girl best. She has a refined face and I adore her style.
    It’s relaxed, casual, fun, playful and I love the added effect with the leather jacket and ballerinas. Have a sweet week;-)

  6. Is that the dress from All Saints! Wow, I love even more now I’m seeing it “live”. Thanks for posting the picture. And feel free to stop by mine when you have time.
