advent season: day twenty-two, life before mr wang

Fashion has been having a seriously masculine moment of late.

or of longer than late, because upon (finally!) viewing Sofia Coppola Miss Dior Cherie advert. i remembered that indeed there did exist a time of pastel colours and floaty dresses before holes and tears and leather and studs.

But this is all part of the fun. It's what makes getting dressed in the mornings so damn difficult but also so lovely; that silky feminine ankle grazing dress, or a baggy tee, high waist boyish combo with some scruffy footwear?

For tomorrow, I am feeling the former.

I love this ad. Though it is not all that fashion forward I think it suits for the case perfectly.

Isn't getting dressed the best part about going out? Well that may be too much, but it certainly is fun :)
