THE FASHION FILES: EVERLANE FALL/WINTER COLLECTION

everlanefw1

This weekend I did some serious online shopping. With colder weather approaching I realized that I did not have any fall/winter clothes. I did most of my shopping at Everlane as I love their basic elegant yet casual fashion. Everlane works with best factories around the world, the very same ones that produce your favorite designer labels, but they manage to keep their designs affordable. My favorite fall pieces is the black cotton shirt (above) and their chunky knit cardigans (I bought the winter white cardigan and also one in navy).

FRIDAY’S FASHION FILES: DICKER BOOTS BY ISABEL MARANT

dicker-boots-9

Isabel Marant’s Dicker boots have been on my wish list for years now. I was hesitant to make the purchase as they are quite expensive. Last year I finally decided to buy them but then they were sold out everywhere. But last week my first pair of Dicker boots arrived! And I have to say that they live up to the hype: the ankle boots are very comfortable and versatile. You can wear them with jeans, shorts, cropped pants and even under a skirt. I bought them from Net-a-Porter in a brown/bronze color but they are also available from Steven Allan, Ssense, Matches Fashion and Farfetch. At the end of this post you can find some less expensive ankle boots in a similar style. I have been wearing the Sam Edelman boots for years and these are also very comfortable.

THE FRIDAY FASHION FILES: THE BOHEMIAN CLUTCH

This bohemian clutch is the perfect accessory. You can wear it casually, to the beach or a festival for example, but you can also take it to a night out. What I like about these clutches is that nobody can be wearing the same bag as you as the vintage fabrics, the embroidery, the use of color and the details make every bag unique.
