Time to have a look at Francoise Hardy’s badass side. The one wearing leather and riding a motorcycle, the one that’s not that often depicted in the archive pictures. To recreate the look and make it wearable today, I skipped the black leather in favor of warmer fall tones of brown and burgundy. The boots I’ve picked are made to order in a small workshop in Bucharest (Etienne), and I think they’re totally Francoise-worthy. I especially like the fact that you can get them in any color you like!

The simple fact that there are at least seven documented outfits of me wearing this dress shows just how much I’ve worn it. I bought it initially for my sister’s wedding in 2011 (first picture below), and then found myself wanting to make more use of it. That’s when I discovered layering and it blew my mind (I still love that outfit with the purple tights, photographed so hastily on my former street). I’ve layered this H&M dress every way I could, with sweaters, shirts, jackets, t-shirts, and it’s been a trustful pal in any season. It’s probably what I’m gonna wear if you invite me to your wedding, fashion event or holiday party. I hope that’s fine with you.

What’s your opinion on slippers? To me, they’re super important. Working from home for so many years, I’ve spent countless working hours wearing slippers. Not to mention, you know, leisure time. So I’d say good house shoes are a must and an investment. Here are some options for handmade slippers, if you’re looking to buy or gift:
One | Bunny slippers by Pracownia Uroczyzsko. These are the cutest things you could wear when coming home after a long day.
Two | Felt slippers by Onstail. The neon inner part makes these felted slippers look cool and modern.
Three | Shearling slippers by MRDline. These are just the type of house shoes I like to wear: super, super warm and cozy.
Four | Cat slippers by Jurga Felt Life. I mean, they have cats, what other selling point does one need?
Five | Socks by Knitten Mum. I realize these are socks, but they’re awesome and you can wear whatever you want at home.
Six | Slippers by Skapin. You could easily step outside with these bad boys, and no one would realize you’re in slippers.
Mod days were absolutely fascinating! Fashion houses like Pierre Cardin, which I’d now describe as conservative, were going over the top with the geometries, synthetic fabrics, and futuristic garments. But I guess we’re lucky to be living in times when you can recreate anything from the past (see below). Plus we can get away with wearing anything we want.

This photography for this lookbook (by Alasdair McLellan) manages to perfectly capture the beauty and gloominess of autumn. It’s sunny, but it’s cold, and the model looks amazing in all the cozy knits and textures. The lookbook shows Margaret Howell‘s collection for this fall, and it’s a beauty. I love the subtle layering, the midi skirt with masculine shoes, the outerwear. And what do you know, the model has my ideal hairstyle! You can see (and shop) all the pieces here.
