Happy Hump Day!

Happy Hump Day!

I’d like to think I have a little bit of a green thumb, I mean a little bit because I’ve only killed 2 plants in the last year and I consider that a win.

Now I’m in the process of actually combining all my little terrariums together (and when I say ‘in the process’, I’m at a contemplative stage), which means I’m on the lookout for some very interesting terrariums and planters. I think either one of those can work. I’ve seen the bottom terrarium in real life, and it’s AMAZING. It’s such an organic shape it’s my preferred terrarium right now.

sweat tops for girls and boys

Some people won’t allow themselves to step outside of the house with sweat tops because they think sweat tops are CHEAP.
Not me! I am dedicated to the Hobo Chic movement and the only thing I think I would NOT wear with the sweats is a pair of CROCS. Or UGG boots.

Sure you could get this from Target; and sure you could grab one from Macy’s, but no one says you can’t go lux on the sweat tops!!

Girls: Featherweight Cashmere High-low Swing Sweater AUD $354.10 {J.Crew}

Boys: Loopback Cotton Jersey Sweatshirt AUD $156 {Mr. Porter}

Happy Hump Day! (Real vs Fake)

It’s no secret that I worship Stella McCartney like the design goddess she is. So after studying all her stuff inside out, it wasn’t hard for me to see the resemblance between a Witchery bag and the original Falabella shoulder bag. Happy Hump Day!

 

Top: Alexa Drawstring Bag $99.95 {Witchery}
Bottom: Falabella Shoulder Bag US$1,000.00 {Stella McCartney}

I can say a LOT about this, but I’m going to keep it simple and short. Even though the Witchery bag is one tenth of the price for this particular bag. It won’t deter me from purchasing a real Stella bag.

Happy Hump Day!

Since the moment I started caring about men’s fashion, I’ve noticed a disturbing trend amongst young, seemingly fashionable men; they would wear slim tailored suits (presumably made somewhere in Asia), and they would carry a Country Road canvas tote overnight bag.

First of all, I love Country Road. I would pretty much buy everything from them. Including the canvas tote, which I happen to have one in baby blue.

Secondly, I understand that sometimes, not everyone can afford a nice leather messenger bag from Gucci. So you use what you have, which happens to be a Country Road canvas tote bag.

Finally, in certain situations brief cases just won’t do. Some of us carry our phones and iPads to work; others have to carry a 15″inch laptop. So sure, Form Follows Function.

Then this seemingly random and whining post is set to reach out to those guys who has the means to buy nice stuff, yet choose to pair the lovely canvas tote bag with their beautifully tailored slim cut suit because they think it looks great together. No. I know you never asked for my opinion. But it gots go.

Trust me when I tell you this, it really doesn’t look great. Let me give you 3 other options:

Happy Hump Day!

Top to bottom: Messenger Bag $38.99 {Amazon}; Leather & Felt Backpack $1849 {Mr Porter}; Leather Backpack $401 {Mr Porter}.

See how I proposed the $401 backpack after showing you a Leather & Felt Backpack that costs $1849?? Now the $401 seems really reasonable doesn’t it?

While men find women who wear sneakers with suits totally confusing, I find the the suit with the overnight bag tote-lly confusing.  (I’m sorry about the pun, I just had to do it.)

If you agree with me, join the crusade to abolish this fashion faux pas. If you don’t, check out my other totally topical men’s fashion posts here.

As my fiance enters this new phase where he’s obsessed with making clear ice, it’s only logical for us to change all our glassware to match this new clear ice.

Only I think we might need two set, you know…one set for the boys so they can drink their Old Fashion and one or two sets for the girls to drink our colourful fruit punch.
