fashion week looks
a couple of months ago i did a series of recaps on nyfw, lfw, mfw, & ashish. i have only recently taken interest in fashion weeks and i honestly don't know much about the designers & brands featured, so the recaps were just for fun. unfortunately, i never got around to finishing my pfw post :( maybe i'll try again in september! along with the recaps, i wanted to put together a few looks inspired by some of the season's designers or trends for fun! enjoy 😉!
i was so blown away by ashish during lfw that i couldn't wait til my lfw recap to talk about it, i had to give the collection its own post that same day. during such a bleak time in the us/world, the positive & funny messages written in sequins & rainbows gave me so much zeal and joy. OH, THE POWER OF FASHUN! i was able to tick off a lot of boxes with my ashish look: multi-colored shirt✅, checkerboard print✅, a positive message✅, even if it's just a cartoonish worm encouraging us to read lol. when i thrifted the rainbow button-down, it immediately reminded me of ashish. i put my own, trendy spin on it by pairing it with my trusty lacy cami & my trustier high-waisted wranglers.
i saw cheetah print here & there during nyfw & mfw. it made me realize how, although it's a wacky print, it's sort of timeless in a way. it's been around for so long & i don't see it going away anytime soon. when i SPOTTED(lol i'm punny) this cheetah print top, i saw it as both a statement piece & wardrobe staple. for the look, i paired it with a two-tone canadian tuxedo & my trusty black sneaker boots. i felt very plain in this look lol so i borrowed an idea from @5AVANN4H & hooked some earrings onto my belt loops. with a red lip & round sunglasses, this look is chill but sassy. like a cheetah!!!
fenty x puma
for her fall/winter 2017 collection, riri went with a scholastic theme. dude imagine if rihanna was a headmaster or a dean, i would totally attend that school. there prob wouldn't be a dress code which is perfect for me because i've been breaking dress codes since '05 AYYY! anyway, i love a strong theme, plaid, rich color stories, the nostalgia of that "back-to-school" feeling during fall, puma creepers, & the bad gal herself, so obvi, i love this collection. with my cropped orange hoodie, my plaid shorts, & my puma creepers, i didn't have to hit the books to put together a look inspired by riri's looks. AYY lol i'm so corny.
lemme know which is ur fav in the comments below! thanks for reading & have a good week <333
