dungarees: celibacy trousers/farmer-chic (?)

When the price tag of a pair of denim overalls reach the price of $300-$500+ you know the fashion industry will describe it as: utility-chic, tom-boy cute, high-fashion farmer, refined rustic, luxe-grunge or whatever oxymoronic phrase with the addition of the word "chic" to dampen the loudness of the attire to help convince consumers/prospective buyers. 

I call it a nice healthy reminder of 90's fashion and I do not completely oppose the flashback since I honestly do own a pair from my 90's life today. Sports bra, heels, silk blouse, lace, leather, naked skin, bikinis, crop tops, blazer, tee... As you can see, the combinations are numerous.

Accept the challenge of wardrobe dismount/going to the bathroom
Not always totally justified, but why not? - Just do it better

girl crush - mireille darc

Among the usual female fashion icons and french girl crushes of the 60s and 70s, Mireille Darc is on the top of the list for us. Of course, we love Jane Birkin, Brigitte Bardot, Françoise Hardy, Jane Fonda and Susan Eldridge to name a few, but Mireille's full blonde helmetesque bangs and doe-like expression is quite lovely.

What a Betty!

a radioactive hello to yellow

An ode to a favorite color: yellow

As if it got stun-gunned/tasered out of its mind, the old yellow has jolted up in its neon state. It honestly works better as an accent and is not for the faint at heart in large doses. Either way, it's approved on fox and minx's standards. We only live once so be bold and never be apologetic about bearing such a color.

*side note: I really need that sweater in photo number 2. keyword: NEED

P.S. HAPPY EARTH DAY! Much Love to Mother Earth (let's treat her well)
