Oh just another beautiful day in the West Village with my vespa… Just kidding dad- I know, I know me + a vespa + New York crazies (aka taxi drivers) is really not the safest situation. BUT a vespa does always make a great prop, no? This look is pretty euro anyways so I thought it was fitting for the photos. For now standing in front of strangers vespas pretending it’s my own will do.
I love this simple and chic MonDefile couture jumper that was handmade for me straight from Paris by designer Meryl Suissa. It also comes in crepe which is another great option for Spring and Summer time. Then there is this amazing origami clutch which was designed by Kaleido who is a young designer from Japan. I love the structure and simplicity to it, so versatile.
Mondefile is my new favorite e-commerce shop-not only because of the many different designers involved from around the globe- but also because the story behind it. The site is the first online retailer and manufacturer that supports emerging fashion designers, which I am a huge advocate of. They promote young and talented designers by offering visibility and means to produce their collections in their workshop. Each month MonDefile preselects the most promising ready-to-wear, jewelry and accessories designers for the community. They then set up collaborations with the designers who are selected by you guys. What I am most impressed with is the quality of the products and for such reasonable prices as well. Working in fashion has taught me to pay attention to the smallest details, and the detailing in these pieces is phenomenal-another reason I praise European designers. Perfetto. Parfait. Bellisima.
All I have left to say is shop away my friends. Treat yourselves. Stay cultured. Live beautifully.
Inspiration of the day:
“Feeling grateful or appreciative of someone or something in your life actually attracts more of the things that you appreciate and value into your life.”
“If you concentrate on finding whatever is good in every situation, you will discover that your life will suddenly be filled with gratitude, a feeling that nurtures the soul.”
