luxury fashion capsule wardrobe tips

this is where I leave you

The past couple of months have been an arduous challenge in time management, making a personal oasis essential for survival. It’s been overwhelming at times, but then I often think that’s what I live for. Moving into a new house, undertaking new challenges, and shifting towards some fresh starts has all but kept me in flight at any moment of the day. But at last, my new home has come together, with a beautiful open studio space for my work and plenty of space designed exquisitely for myself. The transition was difficult, as change often is. New beginnings are also an end, and many aspects of that evolution were bittersweet. But endings should not be sad. Rather, they should be a celebration of something beautiful. The past does not melt into the abyss, part of it stays with us forever. I am forever grateful for the places and experiences that I came from, for each moment in the present time, and the continuation to the imminent future ahead. photography:ME | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | …

dr. marten combat boots and teddy coat

someone please call the Dr. Marten

The rain has been incessant on the east coast, a pelting torrent of cold darkness. There’s not a soul who could combat the chill in the air. But fear not, the Dr. is in town. Dr. Marten that is, sweeping street style by storm in every outfit combination from evening couture to 90’s grunge. The allure? Dr. Marten’s signature combat boots have been around for ages, and the return of 90’s youthful rebellion has brought the style back in full swing, namely with their more recent update of the Jadon 8 Eye Boots. A fresh take on the classics, the Jadon 8 Eye Dr. Marten boots feature a “bouncing” rubber sole platform that give them an extra 1.75” in height. Featured on Shopbop in full sizes, “Form meets function on these classic Dr. Martens combat boots in luxe leather with the brand’s patented AirWair soles for comfort and slip resistance.” – Shopbop photography:ME | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | dr. marten boots c/0:SHOPBOP   After dedicating hours to drooling over 2018 fashion trends with these …

luxury chunky sneaker style by jeffrey campbell from shopbop

that extra chunky sneaker style tho

Like it thick? The biggest statement of 2018 fashion trends (pun intended) is an exaggerated, extra chunky sneaker. Luxury fashion leader Balenciaga paved the streets extra wide with the launch of their now infamous Triple S Trainers for women. Now sold out in stores and across nearly every site across the web, if you were lucky enough to get your hands on a pair, hold on with a double grip. Missed out? Fret not. Fashion is an evolution, and Balenciaga took a leap on this one that started a wave of changes throughout the fashion universe. Prada, Maison Margiela and Gucci were quick on the draw with their own iconic chunky sneakers, and fast fashion brands like Jeffrey Campbell and Acne were close behind with an array of “dad shoes” styles in every color and height to suit your desires. photography:KUNDAN KUMAR | camera:iPHONE X | jeans c/o:PARKER SMITH | sneakers c/o:SHOPBOP   Looking for something minimal and white to offset the fast fashion trend with something more sustainable for seasons to come, I wasted …

view of china from my hotel room

hello again, day in my dreams

There was nothing magical about the night like in the movies. No pedestal balcony looking over a night sky full of stars and a city full of lights. No marble floors and mid-century modern furniture. No crystal wear or decanters of aged scotch. In fact, everything was quite ordinary in the 4-star hotel corporate suite. A faint smell of room service sat in the air, I had taken a shot of the city when I first arrived of the bedroom view. It was beautiful, but not breathtaking. photography:ME | camera:iPHONE X   The room had a familiar feel to it, as if you had been there before. But perhaps it was just the standard beige wallpapered bathroom and bleach white sheets you find in most hotel accommodations. Yet, something about it felt new, inspiring even. Maybe it was just the jet lag and 30-hour trip with minimal stimulation. Whatever it was, the shift from dreamworld to reality was inevitable. I felt excited. As if I had just found something that had been lost for so …
