tactile mixing

Beyond color and proportion, texture is one of the most underrated and underestimated key proponents of true style. After a long winter of warmest clothes available, I love playing with tactile and visual differences; cashmere and suede, felt and leather, ribbed cotton and wool. It's subtly may be unidentifiable to some, but it certainly is not unnoticed.

what rules?

Being from the South, I grew up on the notion that white was not acceptable before Labor Day. I personally too made other lines of acceptability including no socks with sandals. 
Welp, I'm here to tell you that you just can never say never. I saw No. 21's Fall men's show; and they had the most incredible velvet cross sandals, like these bad boys from Steven Alan x Dr. Scholl's Shoes, and I've never seen a sandal/sock combo look so luxurious.

Of course there are no rules- it's all personal.

Spring is around the corner and Christopher Bailey from Burberry is on my mind. Bailey has an affinity, just like me, to send monochromatic looks down the runway in varying shades of the same color. For Spring, Bailey also showed buttoned up denim jackets under dusters and trenches naturally. I took it for a test run today and I gotta tell ya- I'm loving it. 

FW 15: Best of pants

Fall is all about easing back into smart dressing after a few months of blistering heat keeping layering and true sartorial options at bay. Next season, I'm excited for a much needed move from strictly slim cut. Not throwing away those slim fits just yet, but getting ready to branch out into new silhouettes for the changing weather.
