the fashion games

How can one movie have so much fashion game? The always wonderful Jennifer Lawrence took part in Monday's The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 movie premier in London, and as per usual, she did not disappoint. The queen of Dior walked the red carpet with seasoned vets Natalie Dormer and Julianne Moore. It was Lorde's first movie carpet premier, the songstress providing vocals to the movie's score, and oh yes i loved that snazy pantsuit. The singer tamed her usual curly mane and sported a menswear inspired suit from Shiaparelli's spring '13 couture collection, and she's making me wish i could rock harem pants and pointy-toe flats with such style. I was actually supposed to be Liam Hemsworth date, I just got ....busy...

whether the weather be fine. i officially have no idea how to dress anymore. one day i'm wearing a scarf and bracing cold winds, an the next i'm in a sleeveless top. should i really be putting all my open-toe shoes away for the winter? because it's totally looking like i may get a few more wears out of them this year. and hey, if i just so happen to pack them away too early i can just buy a few new pairs, right?

it's here! that awkward in-between weather that i have no idea how to dress for. is it acceptable to start wearing tights? or should i just compromise and wear a scarf, instead? do i need to wear a coat on my walk to work in the morning if i know that on my way home i'll be sweating in it in the late afternoon? someone come and take me to the Bahamas, and then all of my fashion woes will be solved.

toque (n) noun - (/ˈtoʊk/[1] or /ˈtɒk/) is a type of hat with a narrow brim or no brim at all. They were popular from the 13th to the 16th century in Europe, especially France. now it is primarily known as the traditional headgear for professional cooks, except in Canada where the term is primarily used for knit caps. (shout out to Wikipedia)

example: today i am wearing my toque because ain't nobody got time for hair on a Monday morning.

my skull scarf is badass and yet so cute at the same time! today marks the first day of scarf season, and its bitter-sweet. it truly marks the end of summer - sandals, crop tops and short shorts; but it also marks the beginning of something even more magical; layers, scarfs and layers. yes. i said layers twice. meta-layers!
