luxury winter fashion blogger

baby it’s cold outside, but at least we look good doin’ it

Confession of a fashionista, I hate winter. Not dislike, nor do I find it disagreeable. I loath it entirely. The cold, the snow, defrosting my car in the mornings, shoveling the sidewalk, winter fashion, wearing so many layers I feel like an over-stuffed burrito – no thank you. Though I was able to escape the first of the year on a tropical adventure to Bali, I still came home to a fair amount of the season’s harshest. Attempting a mental escape, I decided to have some fun with fashion, regardless of the relentless snow fall. My lifesaving piece, this xllullan winter coat. Think modern art splashed onto your childhood comforter – sewn into a luxury winter coat. It’s perfect. Just what I needed to save me from the worst of the season. The best part, it’s actually so warm, I was able to getaway with some more-than daring trends of the season. photography:KUNDAN KUMAR | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | winter coat c/o:XLLULLAN | over the knee boots c/o:EGO OFFICIAL | criss cross bralette c/o:ADORE …

the black leather corset, MCQ by Alexander McQueen

Playing the bad-girl with the dark side of fashion alongside slick vinyl pants and asymmetrical braids, the black leather corset is back, and more fierce than ever. The reemergence of grunge is hitting mainstream with a force. From daring fashion trends to pop culture like Taylor Swift’s rebirth in Reputation – as always – the strong bond between lifestyle and fashion is evident. Are you ready for it? It’s time to live fearlessly, embracing your boldest self, never backing down. Dominating the streets from traditional bone-lined corsets to corset belts, shirts, dresses and accessories, it’s clear mainstream is about to be overcast by an apocalyptic rush of dark, lace-up bad girl style surging through with a vengeance. And what’s worse, we’re going to like it. top corset picks by kristina-petrick featuring studded belts   photography:BECCA ESHLEMAN | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | black leather corset c/o:IFCHIC Designer labels absolutely killing the corset trend Some of the labels doing it right?
