Monday You Can Fall Apart

June 21, 2011

Wearing: Club Monaco bustier & ring, Aritzia shorts,
H&M wedges & earrings, Urban Outfitters sunglasses

Five things:

1. Favourite song ever – “The Modern Age” by The Strokes.
2. Favourite movie ever – The Royal Tenenbaums (Billy Elliot and White Chicks are close runner-ups)
3. Favourite book (and author) ever – East of Eden by John Steinbeck.  It’s from this book that my philosphy for life comes from: “timshel”.  Google it!
4. Favourite colours – turquoise, persimmon, seafoam green, daffodil yellow.
5. Biggest style inspirations: Françoise Hardy, Charlotte Casiraghi, Taylor Tomasi Hill, Miroslava Duma, Hanneli Mustaparta, Brigitte Bardot.

Hope all of you are managing to enjoy your Mondays!  Currently watching The Bachelorette (don’t judge me) and it is bad.  I am a trash-TV afficiando and even I can’t stomach it.  And yet, I somehow…can’t…tear myself…away from it……save me!

    I love your top! Steinbeck is my favourite authour as well, but I think I am tied between Grapes of Wrath and East of Eden, they are both so compelling and beautifully written!

    That top has serious sex appeal. I love that you paired it with casual shorts so that you could wear it day-to-day 🙂 Also, not going to lie, I'm kind of jealous that you're watching trash TV… Shows like The Bachelorette are exactly the reason I don't have cable; my brain would turn to mush!

    You look smokin' hot in that bustier, Alex! Love the grecian feel, and it obvs looks even better with your tan (ugh, I need some serious beach time). I never got into the Bachelorette, but I agree that The Royal Tenenbaums is amazing.

    Hahahah. That's the thing about trash tv isn't it? Incredibly terrible, yet there's always a pulling force. I sometimes indulge in the Kardashians. shhh

    I thought your outfit was a romper at first glance. Hahaha. Love the bustier top a lot. Great wedges.
