Holiday Statement Piece

// Annakiki blazer, Nanushka pant, Monica Vinader necklace and earring //

This incredible Annakiki blazer is my core statement piece this holiday season. It makes me feel like a ballerina with it’s fun, voluminous waist. It super high fashion, yet also super wearable. We all need some Annakiki in our lives. Who agrees? 

THE T-SHIRT CORSET

// H&M x Brock Collection tank. Nanushka pant //

It hits 100 degrees in NYC today and this is all I will be wearing. The t-shirt corset by H&M x Brock Collection. Lately I’m wearing it along or over a white tee. Talk about one super cool collaboration. 

THE NEW YORKER’S ESSENTIALS

// Paul Smith coat (similar), Aristide gloves // 

I am finding myself slipping into more black these days like most New Yorkers. It’s become our survival uniform. This time I’m wearing black but playing with texture and all the little details. The leather buckle on my wrists of my coat and the pink peeking from my gloves give a refreshing feeling to the classic New Yorker’s all black look. It’s a busy week. I am sticking to the luxurious essentials. Somehow, these pieces feel royal. They’re that good. 

CAPTURING ONE’S ESSENCE

// Emilio Cavallini jumpsuit, The Great Eros hi waist undies, vintage blazer, Lula Lulas earrings, S-Sil necklace //

There’s really just something extra special about a black and white photograph. You strip all the colors away, and you’re left with the bare bones. You’re left with one’s essence. I trust in my sister for always capturing the most artistic and beautiful images of me. She has that magic touch. Maybe I just feel the most me, and the most comfortable when she’s behind the camera. Nobody knows me better than her. And it’s in one’s essence that I find beauty. It’s going beyond what the eye can see, and into one’s soul. Wearing this lace bodysuit in front of the camera felt like stripping me down to my bare bones. A day where I felt strong, happy, and content in my own skin. I own my story and I am empowered by it. I love getting to share bits and pieces of this life with you, but I believe a woman must always keep something personal just for herself. To keep her mystery. That’s what a black and white photo does. It allows you to protect your mystery. I love who I am today. That’s something to be proud of.
