There’s something so sweet and special about the first autumn breeze – the way the air is slightly chilly and makes the burnt orange leaves fall from the trees. The sensation one gets when it starts getting dark at 5pm and the sunset is just a faint glimmer in the distance is unique to autumn; it calls for turtlenecks, oversized scarves, hot chocolate by the fire, and warm jazz tunes. There’s nothing better than getting ready for the first cold day after a warm and busy summer and feeling that refreshing draft tickle your skin.
Life is all about sacrifices – many times one will have to give up something in order to get something else. It’s inevitable and it happens to everyone at least once in their lives. Many people think that making sacrifices is a dreadful act, but sometimes it’s necessary and it doesn’t always have to be negative. I think it’s a good thing because it challenges your daily life and makes you think of every possible outcome in a certain situation. Think about it, what would life be without a few sacrifices?
The other day we felt the first glorious moments of spring weather in NYC. I think I had forgotten about that feeling when the rays of sun shine on your skin and the only thing you can help to do is close your eyes and take it all in. Then you proceed to take off your coat and wish that you would never need to put it on again – which is exactly what I did. However, it’s not quite spring yet so coats are still necessary… unfortunately.
Since a very young age, I’ve had a fascination for all things soft and smooth. Cashmere, silk, satin, velvet… Each one so unique and pleasant. They caress the skin – light, delicate, and gentle. It always intrigued me how these distinct materials individually come together to make a specific item of clothing. They make clothing more playful, elegant, and enjoyable. Why wouldn’t one not wear them on a day-to-day basis?
Who doesn’t love a classic little black dress? The thing about them is that most of the time, you can wear them with anything. That is with heels, sneakers, a large hat, chunky accessories – whatever you want. Little black dresses are just that versatile, which is great! I love pieces that are versatile because they can adapt to different styles and are all-around useful. That way, you don’t need the same 3 tops of varying colors, although that does come in handy. So, how are you going to pair your little black dress?
