Abstract expressionism

Earlier within the week, I forget to make an outfit post. Balance is essential in everyday life. I personally love to apply high fashion pieces with high street garments. Never wanna give myself the impression of being a frivolous label whore. A classic chambray shirt I got on sale from express pair with some 👖 slim cut #20jeans, this abstract raf by #rafsimons t shirt 👕, and my favorite black #maisonmartinmargiela leather and suede trainers 👟. Depending on the proportions, it can deliver either a laid back urban/grungy vibe.

Shade blocking

This winter has been a beast. I am not sure how I can maintain to this madness. The best thing about the winter is the ability to layer up! For example, today I have decided to rock my something basic but let the colors do the talking. Spring and summer are not the only seasons to wear color. Wearing color during the cold months must be subtle. It’s alright to have a pop of color every now and again.

Ironically, color blocking weren’t my intentions. However, this azure blue peacoat from Asos heighten the color palette of the dark green shirt from Express finished off with my slim cut jeans from Old Navy and green suede trainers by Maison Martin Margiela. Blending high and low fashion is the best. It keeps you grounded!

Express Fall Campaign 2011


One of the popular high street fashion brands in the Louisville Nightlife (so cliche) is Express. This is one of their early campaign ads for the fall.. Military Jacket seem to make a comeback this year. One thing that really gets to be about Express is the lack of creativity to their ads. I mean don’t be wrong, they are acceptable; however,  it just reminds me off a ripped off version of a DKNY campaign ad.
