Hi everyone! So today is much colder than yesterday, therefore I decided to wear my biker boots! I’ve been wanting studded boots for several months now and finally found the perfect pair in a small boutique 2 weeks ago in Midtown. They are short, super comfy and go with basically everything! I love wearing them with leather pants like today, the leather combination gives a glam-rock overall look which I am a fan of. Studded boots also go perfectly with dresses and skirts, with a preference for flared and baby doll cuts. The boots break the innocent and little girl feel of the flared dress to give a more provocative tone to the outfit. I am looking forward to the spring to wear my studded boots with a white lace dress that I have. The opposition of styles (white lace vs. black studded leather) along with nude legs will create the ultimate balance between sexiness, purity and provocation!
I’m in love with Men’s clothes, is that crazy? I’ve been purchasing these menswear a lot lately which is kinda weird because that is not usually the case. My style has changed and transformed A LOT since I intern at 3.1 Phillip Lim. It is amazing how a place where you work has so much influence on you. Ok you might think, “Big deal!” but here is another reason to believe me: I just chopped off my beloved hair that I have been growing since… forever. This is all happens after I start working there. And I’m definitely not complaining.
Ok, enough about that and back to my love at first sight. I walked into H&M one day out of boredom and didn’t really looking to buy anything but something magical happened. It is love at first sight when I laid eyes on this MM6 for H&M coat. I went to the women section but nothing really caught my eyes but when I glided over to men section, this coat is actually screaming my name!!! I love how rustic and retro it looks. The style description on the tag said “Fusion of several car coats”, it is a re-edition of MM6 from various seasons and this one is Spring-Summer 2004. How could I resist that??? I love these little attention to details, it give clothes so much more meaning. This coat is exactly what I’ve been subconsciously looking for: oversized and unique with a vintage element. It can go with basically everything in my closet. But beware! oversized men’s coat is not for everyone, so I suggest trying it on before you swipe your credit card, just to be safe!
NYC is boiling, it literally feels like we are in LA right now. I even have my AC on. It’s pretty crazy! It meant that I got to get my legs out for the second day in a row – what a treat!! Today I wore a leopard print skater dress from Topshop, it’s very fitted at the top and flares out gently. It’s the perfect cut for me, because unlike my co-bloggers I’m not a bean pole. It really flatters my waist and makes me feel a little bit like Marilyn Monroe, just not blonde or sultry or a good singer (I really can’t sing). Anyway, I paired it it with some great heels from Steve Madden that I bought just at the end of the summer. They’re the perfect fall color, burgundy and are so versatile I can wear them with almost anything. Plus they are so comfy I can walk in them all day. And on days like today, where I ran around NYC all day dropping off clothes for different magazines, it counted. (PS I almost saw Taylor Swift, almost.). Since it was pretty warm I paired it with a light black trench coat which I got from Massimo Dutti. They just opened in New York in October and I seriously recommend everyone check them out! Everything is amazing, an great quality and wearable. Tomorrow is going to be a lot colder, so check back in then for a completely different look. Good night!
Shoes: Steve Madden
Today was warm and nice and I don’t know about you, but when it gets warmer I am way more inspired as what to wear! My motto: always dress according to the season and the weather. I stayed true to my rule in picking a white trench-coat, having the magical power to immediately give some allure and class to any outfit. Another thing which I LOVE wearing when it’s not too cold: ballet flats. I’m an unconditional fan of ballet flats, own like a hundred pair of them as they remain my favorite piece to buy no matter what…ok ok…along with bags I guess.
As I work at CHANEL and that basically everyone there wears CHANEL from head to toe, I kind of felt the need to wear my CHANEL flats today (my favs). They go perfectly with the Burberry Trenchcoat as both items give the same classy-chic feel. I am also a big adept of burgundy which I believe to be THE color of the season, therefore I used my recently acquired burgundy skinny jeans from Zara to match with the black and violet ballerinas. The preppy black and white shirt reinforces the “smart” aspect of the look, the icing on the cake being obviously the Muse bag which to me is a pure symbol of elegance.
Happy Monday everyone! Sasha here! So as Torpad said, we are going to try and upload a photo each day of what we’re wearing to sort of give you an insight into our own personal styles and how they reflect into the outfits we have styled so far, and are going to style in the future! However, unlike Torpad I couldn’t find someone to take a photo of me today! My outfit was pretty simple though, i wore a black skater skirt, a black T and over the knee boots. No tights as it was super warm today so at times I had to ask myself if it was a little slutty or not. Anyway. The main focus of my outfit today was a super cute mermaid-esque headband that my friend Avalonne left at my place a few months ago. It’s been sitting in my apartment feeling lonely, and I felt a bit whimsical today so I decided to give it a day out. Statement headbands are super fun because they can make any simple outfit look fun and flirty immediately, whilst also make you feel like you are playing dress up. Also they always gain tones of attention! So my advice of the day is, you don’t always have to go all out with what you’re wearing. Keep it simple, all black always works, and add a statement piece in for a fun and chic outfit.
Ok this is exciting and a bit nerve-wracking because Sasha came up with an idea for us 3 to post our own everyday look. So you will be seeing a lot of us this week. It is one thing to dress others but ourself!! hmm.. that’s another level for me but anyhow, i will do my best : )
So what I have on today is just simple pieces that I put together. I love clothes that have a good but unique cut (and a bit masculine). My white Uniqlo shirt is oversized because it’s Mens and I pair it with navy flared 3.1 Phillip Lim shorts that look like a skirt to give some character to the look and not too stiff when I put on my favorite long black Uniqlo coat. The weather is quite nice today, so I can get by with a lighter coat, yayy!! I want to keep it tone down color-wise, so I throw in white 31 Hour bag and a black patented H&M oxford because I want the different texture to stand out from my black tight. Aiming for simple but stylish look, do you guys think I achieve it?
3 Fashion Girls, 1 Big City, and countless amounts of ‘What do I wear?!’ texts led to a Corona filled night at raunchy downtown club, The Box where ‘Stylist Cubed’ was born! We are adopted Gothamists, coming from Bangkok, Paris and London – Owen Wilson called us the United Colors of Benetton at a vodka fueled night at Kenmare (RIP, you are missed). God knows how we all get along! But we do have one common love: Fashion. We spend our days working at 3.1 Phillip Lim, CHANEL and Saint Laurent, and our nights searching for different and cool restaurants and bars.We have fun, and love our lives even though we look different, dress different and definitely act different (although we all get hit on by the same weirdos, but that’s NYC).
We live in a weird and wonderful world which we have called The Cube, and we would like to invite you to come inside, check out our lives and see if you find our outfits interesting. Got an OkCupid date? We’ve been there, oh we’ve been there, and know exactly what to wear. Fashion interview? Follow our style tips to name it. And if you’ve been lusting after following the leather trend but don’t know how to avoid looking like a dominatrix biker, let us guide you in the right direction!
