Something Old, Something New

So Long Summer...Sunflower Fields

As we bid summer adieu, I made it my business to get out and have photos taken in a beautiful sunflower fields in my hometown. Also when you have the perfect outfit in mind why not call up your photographer, and go out and make magic happen.

Majority of my outfit is “something old”, but I did recently purchase these white culottes from H&M in the summer sale. They are some of the most flattering trousers I own. I mean you really can’t go wrong with the illusion that a wide leg and high waist line creates - think taller and lean…legs for days!!!

Now on to the rest of the outfit, I paired my vintage robe/kimono with a silk polka dot Escada bodysuit. Fancy right. I wanted my look to compliment my beautiful surroundings, and these pieces fit the bill. I kept my jewelry very simple. Pearls to match the polka dots, and a simple gold necklace.

Until next time guys. Be well. Take care, and trust that all that you desire will be given.

Copenhagen Fashion Week SS19 - Cecilie Bahnsen Recap

Copenhagen kicks off the fashion calendar, and boy does it set the tone for the upcoming season.  The brand that I'm highlighting in this post is Cecilie Bahnsen.  She has only been an established luxury brand for a few years but her feminine sihouletes and those beautiful baby doll dresses are leaving a sure mark on the Danes and the rest of the world alike.

Although the sandals are a bit of a contrast, personally I like them.  The pearls and diamonds along the strips add a complementary touch.  I also noted that the designer opted not to feature black in this collection, but instead expanded the designs with simple and cute two pieces.
