Maison Margiela Replica Review

 

My love affair with fragrance has been ongoing for as long as I can remember. When I was a young teenager I received an apple scented body spray for Christmas. I was beyond thrilled and wore it to death. My tastes have matured since then but my intoxication with scent has remained the same. I still buy most of my body products based on smell.¬†Fragrance invokes memories for me in such a visceral way. Any time I catch a whiff of nutmeg I’m immediately transported back to the trip I took to Greece in my early 20s, because I bought a nutmeg scented perfume while I was there. Dior’s Poison will forever be the scent I associate with my mother, all dolled up in a big 80s way for a night out on the town. Maison Margiela’s Replica fragrance line is designed to invoke long buried memories so I was hooked as soon as I learned about their perfumes. Welcome to my Maison Margiela Replica review!

An office appropriate fall outfit. What I wore on October 1st and a sad goodbye

An office propriate fall outfit

A fall outfit: Poutine and Prada fall 2019 Aritzia Michael Kors Sam Edelman

Well, it’s October. Fall is officially upon us. I’m scraping the frost off my car in the morning and the air is starting to smell like snow. On the positive side – it’s time for office appropriate fall outfit planning!

I found this Michael Kors skirt at a consignment shop last week for a mere $25! I was so excited and immediately started planning all the great office appropriate fall outfits I would be able to create with it. On this day I paired it with a slim fitting black turtle neck and ankle boots. As I was throwing on my trusty leather jacket I spied this scarf hanging in the back of the closet and decided to wind it around my neck a few times to finish off the look and keep me warm. I liked the resulting look.

Slow Fashion Season Challenge: The Last Update

Slow Fashion Season

This year’s Slow Fashion Season challenge ended on September 21st. I explained the challenge in detail here, if you’d like to read about it.

The Slow Fashion Season Challenge was created by Collaction and the basics are that, from June 21st to September 21st, participants were to buy no new clothing. Second hand shopping and swaps are allowed. The point of the challenge is to draw attention to the wasteful nature of fast fashion.

What I’ve been wearing lately: an outfit round-up

 

This week’s post is one I’ve never done before – an outfit round-up! Here’s every outfit I wore to work last week!

Outfit Round-up: Monday

Outfit Round-up: Monday Camel blazer and Aritzia dress and Sam Edelman boots; What are the best fall outfits

I am not a Monday person. I do not greet the start of the work week with energy, goals, and peppiness. On Mondays my outfits tend to go one of two ways:

  1. Comfortable because the exhaustion is real;

  2. Power outfit to motivate me to kick this week’s a$$.
