Sunday Style no. 39


Oh, Zara! How could I have forgotten about you for as long as I had!

It's that time again, folks. September Fashion Week in NYC is nearly upon me and that means I need to start pulling together my looks for the week. (I'm talking lists, outfit choices, all the wonderful things that Type A Nami lives for...seriously, my packing lists are frightening to some.)

As mentioned last week, my love of black has returned with a ferocity I can't even explain. Something about always looking put together even when you're comfy. So, I began my search online with the usual suspects and stumbled upon Zara's recent collection. I swooned so hard, I nearly fell off the couch. It encapsulates everything I love about texture & proportion play that black affords...and hits the nail on the head in terms of the "gallery owner" look that I adore...and all without cutting my bangs above my eyebrows. (Did that once. Don't feel liked doing it again.)

So, this week's Sunday Styles is another shout-out to black. This time I'm also hollerin' at the concept of the New Classic...or Neue Classic because I feel like being German today. This cropped top + pleated skirt combo definitely harkens back to Dior circa 1960, but with a fresh new take. Namely, the structural viscose fabric & tailoring of the top and the coated fabric of the skirt. Similar proportions with a modern twist. Can't go wrong there.

I'm hoping to wear this one in September. Just really praying the weather isn't too hot...let's hope the AC in the tents, at the very least, is blasting!

And now, back to  bummin' around the apartment. I think there's some laundry that desperately needs to get done. Have a great rest of the weekend! xo!
