state cashmere review

something about the feel of cashmere | sustainable fashion

You know when you see a puppy and you can’t help but to dig your fingers into their soft plush fur for a scratch? Pull the sleeves down over your hands, it feels good to sink into a cocoon of luxury. Even in the summer months, there’s something about cashmere that is unlike any other material. What a privilege to experience summer with cool air vents creating a refuge indoors, where we can still afford ourselves the luxury of snuggling down in soft, plushy warmth. photography:ME | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | sustainable cashmere sweater c/o:STATE CASHMERE (use code: KRISTINA20 for 20% off) The natural fibers fold together pulled tight by the intricate knitting. Tracing a covered hand over your face, you can almost sink into the sensation. Even cuddling a baby bunny with your bare hands is challenged by this competition of plushness. Cashmere. The kingsize bed of fabrics, cashmere is a wool fiber spun from select goat breads from the mountains. There’s no itch. It’s like fuzzy butter against your skin. While there …

silence | learning to embrace the luxury of time

The keys clinked in the dish where I dropped them on the shelf. Then, the house was silent. The laughter, stories, cocktails and dinners had faded to ghosts of the past. That was yesterday. Today, nothing moved or breathed besides my own flesh, returning home from the office and pouring a glass of wine. photography:ME | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | sustainable organic cotton sweater c/o:STATE CASHMERE (use code: KRISTINA20 for 20% off) It’s always been odd to me that some people resist those moments alone. They often find solace in companionship and conversation. Don’t get me wrong, while deeply introverted in my regeneration, I’m quite a bird in social settings. Yet, there is something rewarding in coming home to nothing but silence. You can hear the birds just outside the windows. There are no distractions. There is time to relax and enjoy a moment of stillness. Life has become chaotic and overrun with stimulation. So much so, that nothing is stimulating at all. That is, all but the luxury of time. Time that we …

luxury fashion essentials for the minimalist

life and luxuries for a minimalist

With life rolling through like a freight train, it’s important to be able to step back and appreciate the small things. Coffee on the porch on a cool morning, the laughter in the eyes of someone you love, a fragrance the reminds you of home – these small moments let us pause. They give us a deep satisfaction of being only in the moment without distractions, capturing every sensation more intensely than we often allow ourselves. These are the moments we get lost in, a treasure that cannot be met for value. In the fashion industry, it’s easy to get caught up forgetting these moments entirely. Operating at jet speed and surrounding yourself with material items, hunting for the latest fashion trends, and skimming through so much content, it’s easy to become too overloaded for truly soaking everything in. Since starting a luxury fashion blog just a few years back, I have learned how fast those treasured moments can pass you by. Striving to lead an alternative minimalist lifestyle, it has become an important part …

net bags fashion trend

It’s official, citrus fruits in net bags are currently trending on the most popular fashion blogs

When life gives you lemons, grab a couple of limes and oranges and throw them in a net bag – you’ll be the hottest it-girl on the ‘gram. Laugh if you will, but this summer fashion trend isn’t going anywhere. Being in the fashion industry, I find myself browsing some of the best fashion blogs and magazines for inspiration on the daily. This phenomenon of fruit in fashion struck me as odd when I first spotted it budding as early as last fall. Since then, the trend has totally taken over Instagram feeds and fashion editorials alike. What’s defining the summer fashion trend So what is all of this sweet ruckus about? In a push for sustainable fashion, the net back (resembling cotton fishnet) has officially made it’s debut on the fashion scene. Found mostly in off-white as well as black and a few neutral colors, it is a small-footprint solution to toting around daily essentials (and apparently fruits). Pro tip, don’t try to tote around small or projecting items. My YSL logo bag constantly …
