3 Clothing Items That Are Better Bought in the Men’s Department

           The thing I’ve grown to love most about clothing is that nowadays you can pretty much do anything and everything you want with them. You can wear a skirt as a strapless top. You can wear sandals with socks (I know, who would have thought?!). You can even decide to not wear any clothes at all.

            One of my favourite indiscretions when it comes to shopping for garments is peeking into the men’s department. As fashion has moved towards androgynous styles, more brands have brought out ‘boyfriend fit’ shirts, jeans etc, you name it. Still, none of them manage to do it as well as the originals you can find one level below, in the men’s department.

            I have found pretty much anything in the men’s department, but 3 particular items stand out to me.


 1.     The chunky sweater

3 Things You Won't Be Able To Do in OTK* Boots But Why They're Still Amazing

It was around this time last year that I got a pair of over the knee boots from Zara. I bought these influenced by many things, but mostly because I believed they were the key to looking effortlessly chic at all times (and I couldn’t afford the hefty price of StuartWeitzman boots).

One Item, 5 Days: The Slip Dress

            A few years ago my friend uncovered this old photo of us from when we were 9 years old, in which I was wearing wide-leg culottes and coloured-lens 90s sunglasses. I couldn't find it for the purpose of this video but, trust me, it was hilarious. At the time, I cried with laughter and wondered how my mother let me leave the house dressed like that. Lo and behold, here we are today and everyone is wearing culottes. 13 years ahead of time, my mother must have predicted the trends that were to follow.

How Shoes Can be Achievable New Year Resolutions

2017-01-08 17.32.57
Sticking to New Year resolutions is hard. Granted, that’s mostly because they are set by vulnerable people who feel pressured to do so, at a time when many expectations to renew yourself are created. Most times, the intention to go to the gym, eat healthily or travel more is there, but the motivation is hardly strong enough to keep that going much longer past January.
