We all know about the Alexander Wang x H&M collection that launched a little over a month ago, don’t we? Well, on my last trip to China I managed to purchase 2 items in Hong Kong before heading home. The truth is, every H&M I had visited prior to that was SOLD OUT. Quite sad I know. My choices were limited, but truth be told – this skirt was on my list of must-have items.
While J’adore Alexander Wang’s design aesthetic, I would not wear most of the clothes he made. Personal preference. But the thing I loved about this collection he did with H&M was that it had something for everything, even while maintaining the sports luxe aesthetic he is famous for. And while I may venture into the sports luxe arena – I do it in a way I am comfortable with.
I have seen this particular skirt worn in many ways, mostly paired with sliders or sneakers & a sweatshirt. I decided to make it night-time appropriate. So while the piece on it’s own is sporty. The overall look today is glam. It’s me. I think it’s important to be able to transform ones clothing so that it can be worn as much as possible. I know I often don’t repeat items (unless I am absolutely obsessed with them) on the blog, but I do in my everyday life. And the reason you don’t see repeats here is because I don’t have a photographer following me around everyday – sad I know. I would actually love that! Anyway, I would love to hear your thoughts on this look post. I really do love this skirt. And the shopping bag too 🙂 I had to include it!
And just a little disclaimer, yes this was shot before I went pixie 🙂 The blog was so busy last week I had to wait to post this. Hope you have enjoyed it.
