It is essential to have a basic black blazer to every wardrobe. In my Mom's case, she likes a little bit more than a basic black blazer. That's why this Issey Miyake blazer is just perfect for her.

Check this out guys. Mom's latest acquisition - a pair of vintage mules from Antwerp Six's Dirk Bikkembergs! I like these lovely heels' mix of subtlety (plain black) and flamboyance (blatant display of the label's name). I don't mind the display of labels as long as it's tastefully done and  as long as it's purposely incorporated to the style of the article.
I just wish Bikkembergs bring back the old Bikkembergs aesthetic. I'm so over the commercial jock sportswear look! 
Moving on. Check out Mom as she works her new pair of Bs! Will try to convince her to wear her first Bs  (yes the orange ones she wore at the Preview Ball last July) on her next outfit post!

Instead of wearing her trademark all-black ensemble Mom opted for an immaculately clean all-white number with a splash of light and dark browns for a change. Her whimsical Comme des Garcons deconstructed jacket was just perfect for the "fantasy" theme of Metrowear's Holiday Haute Couture shindig last night! After the presentation of the designer collections, Lola A willingly posed for my camera together with her favorite beckys in attendance!

Both my Mom and I love to explore the different possibilities of wearing a garment. Today, she puts a new spin on this men's indigo denim trench coat from Yohji Yamamoto's now defunct Coming Soon line. Instead of wearing it like a typical trench she inverted it backwards to reveal its seams, lining and even the tag. Thus, it looks more interesting and modern. Then, she paired it with an all-black outfit so the denim trench coat would pop out even more. And then, she opted for a comfy pair of chocolate brown penny loafers with tassels from Bally for a more laid-back look.

Who doesn't love the sight of leaves freely moving on the ground? It reminds me of my fondest memories of my first trip to Europe - walking around Place des Vosges, window-shopping at the most chichi boutiques along Via Montenapoleone and sight-seeing in the historic Bruges. And of course I love the idea of layering during fall.

Both my Mom and I rarely accessorize but once in awhile we'll discover something interesting and fabulous like this gorgeous vintage leather belt with chain from Celine. It can absolutely jazz up any dull outfit anytime.
