Phillip Lim Bag // J Crew Jeans // Derek Lam Shoes

divide

Sorry I’ve been putting up my street style post so late! I’m still trying to get my new schedule all figured out. I’m now working two jobs and juggling summer school, but its all worth it. The past weeks have been hot with summer swiftly taking over. But today was a nice, post rainy day that left Denver with a cool breeze. I choose a white Alexander Wang blouse that features a great tropical print and square sleeves. At first I hated the ruching in the middle but have come to find it as my favorite feature on this shirt. The white jeans are my summer staples from J. Crew and as always, I had on my white Banana Republic belt. I got the shoes for a steal from Barneys New York. They’re from designer Derek Lam and went well with my favorite summer bag from 3.1 Phillip Lim.

I hope its not too hot where you guys are, and if so, I know how you feel. This week I am obsessed with the artist SOHN. His album Tremors has been on repeat. My favorite song from it would be Lights. See you all very soon!

Couture Update: Fall 2014

chanle

The Couture shows are here and the two most influential French fashion houses, Chanel and Dior, did what they always do…deliver!

divide

Chanel took it cool with funnel neck coats, bold shoulders, and fringed fur. There was some extremely elaborate beading seen on the garments that made me fall in love with Couture all over again. The aesthetic was very Chanel. The finale with a maternal bride made a bold statement and a memorable show.

Dior usually keeps it clean and pristine, and quite frankly, sometimes bores me. But this really drew me in due to the cut, embroidery, and simplicity seen in each piece. The floor length coats were very French like and brought me to another time. Colored shoes screamed excitement for the Fall season and no collection is complete without some silk organza!

Newest Obsession

 

Image

part

Recently a friend and I were having a discussion about jewelry. We don’t (or didn’t) understand the appeal of such expensive pieces. We found them to be “status” markers in our society, something women (and men) bought when they had everything else.

As a broke, addicted to shopping, college student, I find that gems are at the bottom of my “must have” list. I’m a big fan of shoes, bags, and apparel. Spending a few hundred on a Alexander Wang top is easy, but to turn around and spend the same on a ring? Not so sure. While I am a big fan of Tiffany and Co., I only purchase pieces from there on special occasions. Tiffany’s is the only store where I’ve purchased jewelry and not regretted it.

Image

But upon a recent trip to Nordstrom I found myself at the David Yurman case. I’m not exactly the Yurman customer. I typically find the pieces to be boring, over priced, and common. But something must have been in the air because I found myself obsessing over bracelets and rings which were, quite frankly, out of my price range. I tried on the Renaissance Bracelet, featured in silver with green onyx. Not only was the color electric, but the entire look was classic. Well…classic in my book ;)

I continued to try on more pieces and ran across the Wheaton Ring. This particular piece features 10 diamonds total with a black onyx stone in the center. Needless to say, I feel in love. The ring was recommencement of Carrie Bradshaw’s black diamond, unique and mysterious. After I pay off my Visa bill, this will be the first piece taking up some of that credit!

After about an hour of trying on piece after piece, I began to understand peoples love for jewelry. It fulfills a void in our fashion soul that can’t be bought with cheap metals from Forever 21. I guess I’ll need to invest in a new jewelry box…and apply for some more credit cards.

Grimes: New Music

Image

 

New Music is here from Grimes! She is one of my favorite artist known for her use of technology and voice manipulation in her music. Her style is fun and creative. Shes even been featured in a few issues of Vogue! While this new song has some aspects I don’t like, overall its a good track to dance to! Check it out here.

Ted Baker Sugar Sweet Blazer // J. Crew Andie Short

Base

Its was Denver pride earlier today and I wanted to add some class to the event! While I love seeing drag queens in sky scrapper heels and boys in booty shorts, that’s just not how I roll. I knew today would be hot so I finally did it…and put on some shorts. I’m not a big fan of shorts so I kept it a big longer with these J Crew, just above the knee, mint green shorts. They added a fresh feel to my white tank from Banana Republic. This Ted Baker blazer was making me burn up in the sun sun, but it was worth it to look stylish. The water color effect keeps it artsy but the cut means business. Since I was covering pride 2014 for 303 Magazine I knew I had to make it fun but look professional. I wore my oh so reliable Urban Outfitters‘ platform loafers to give me that extra height I always enjoy having. Making the outfit was most def my lime shaped cross body bag. I found it at my local Buffalo Exchange and knew it would be perfect for today’s event from its small size.

I hope you’re all having a fabulous weekend and I will report to you from Sunday pride. This event will have the full out parade and I’ll be sure to post those pictures. My song of the post  is a track from iamamiwhoami, as Swedish pop musician. The track is titled Play and I can’t stop from cranking it up on my summer drives. You can find the track here.

Mens Fashion Week: Street Style

Image

All Images by Tommy Ton

I’m not one to have much interest in menswear. Yes I am a man…but I enjoy womenswear well over men’s. I often find menswear to be stuck in the past and generates very little conversation. Well its men’s fashion week and I’m actually seeing some inspirational street style. Men in dapper suits are changing it up with prints and color. Then there are those dedicated to street wear. Painted tees match with sweat pants to make for a full body suit of color. They’re keeping it real with sneakers in all shapes and sizes. Women are joining in on the fun and taking up their adaptions on men’s suits. One gal had a lovely pink pastel set, but kept feminine qualities with great tailoring. See all the images below!

Peter Pilotto Resort

lookbook

 

I know that resort season has just ended but I couldn’t let it pass by without reviewing Peter Pilotto’s line. Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos are the genius minds behind the bold prints and colorful garments of the Peter Pilotto brand. They are London based designers who met while studying at Antwerp’s Royal Academy of Fine Arts in the year 2000. They describe their ideal client as so:  “She is beyond pure classification of age or style, just like the clothes themselves.”

Colors and pattern are all I want in life, and Peter Pilotto’s 2015 resort line took it there. The collection was more then inspiring, it made me want to toss out everything in my closet, douse it in oil, and set them on fire…just so I had an excuse to buy everything in this collection. Okay, maybe I don’t want to take it that far but it certainly made me want to be a brace dresser.

Kaleidoscope floral’s alongside riverbeds of color created a most memorable collection. I loved the matching tops and pants, creating a full body suit. The rigid cut off of prints caused for a raw urban edge while the cuts kept true to a feminine silhouette. Need I say more? If you’re still not convince of Peter Pilotto’s genius just view the images above and shop the collection here.

New Look New Site

Hello all! You may have noticed the new site layout. I am so excited to reinvent my image and will be offering more for you all. I’ve been wanting to transition to a more personal blog for quite some time now. So I added the EVENTS tab which will allow me to report more of my daily life. Fashion is still number one on my list and I got new pictures to go along with it. I’m taking digital images, allowing my outfits and style to be seen more clearly. I hope you all like the change.

 J Crew Photo Floral Top // J Crew White Toothpick Jean // Chloe Alison East/West Tote

divider

With my new camera I captured this spring outfit for you guys! I am in love with this printed top from J. Crew even though, I’ve seen the pattern get knocked off at a couple places. I am a sucker for good white jeans and once again, J. Crew was the place to go. They fit me great and don’t stretch throughout the day. The braided belt is from Banana Republic and goes well with my gray platform shoes from BDG. I really need good summer shoes and I love some height, any suggestions of where to look? You may have noticed the new bag! I got it for myself as a birthday gift and I just adore it. Chloe makes it in many colors but I love the fresh look of these two colors together. I’m now linking the available items above. If you can’t stop thinking about it, go for it.

 I hope everyone is having a good week. I just started a new job at Denver’s 303 Magazine and will keep you all posted. I’m also doing a “song of the post” suggestion. If you all have heard any good tracks recently let me know. I’m always looking for exciting songs to add to my track list. This week I’m obsessed with Lana Del Rey’s new track, Brooklyn Baby. Its going to be on her upcoming album Ultraviolence, released June 17th. Find the track here.

Its all happening again, Tennis is back. The Denver based indie pop band is back with a full album. Earlier this year they released a small EP titled Small Sounds. The husband wife duo met each other at the University of Colorado Denver. They were both studying Philosophy when Patrick drew a comic for Alaina, and the rest is history. They hitched up, sold their instruments, and went sailing around the world.   I adore this band dearly for their fresh dream pop sound, not to mention Alaina Moore’s great style. Their new album is titled Ritual in Repeat and the song listings is below. You can listen to Never Work for Free below!

My head has been cut off again-ish…

Denver has been experiencing constant storms this week and that means I needed to bring back my Gap trench coat. I really love this piece for its classic style. My button up has some super cute, dot detail that you can’t seem to see in the picture. Therefore, I have decided to switch to digital images. It’ll be different but I think it’ll be good to try out. If I don’t like how the images look I can always switch back to film. I also decided to keep the name of the site as Khoa Sinclair. It just has a better ring to it. Anyways…back to the outfit. The denim, dot detail top is from J Crew and the pants from Gap. You can’t see in any of the images but I am wearing my brown Prada loafers which have suffered severe water damage :(  Lastly I am using my fav bag of all time! The 3.1 Phillip Lim 31 hour bag. I love it for the colors and its fun fold over flap design. I hope you’re all having a very good week! Expect more post from me soon, I have some new ideas in mind.

Top: Thrifted, Shoes: Urban Outfitters, Pants: BDG, Blazer: Banana Republic.

Hey everyone I hope you’re well. I’ve been thinking of changing up the look of my blog lately. I’ve also been thinking of switching the name to “Confauxdence” and using Khoa Sinclair for my artist website. Let me know what you guys think!

This picture was taken during finals week, a very stressful time. I was in the Mac lab working on a few final projects that turned out great! I’m wearing my fab BDG waxed jeans in this pic along side a thrifted button up. I love the lush, forest scene on it. I’m wearing my usual platform shoes and a Banana Republic blazer. Its getting hot in Denver so I went to J. Crew to pick up some great linen tops I can’t wait to share with you all! I hope you’re having a good week, let me know what you think about the redesign of the blog!

Street Style: Cut off my Head

Finals are over and I have…oh, some lovely 2 weeks before summer school starts! The semester has been great but I’m so happy to be done! I can’t wait to start blogging again regularly and letting you all see my take on spring summer fashion. Its been raining almost every day in Denver and that makes it hard to dress accordingly. You never know what time and how long it’ll rain for. Today I wanted to add some color to my wardrobe since it is spring. Here I have on an orange Banana Republic trench coat paired with a lovely, light merino wool knit form J Crew. I LOVE these white J Crew jeans for their thickness. White pants, so often, are very see through. But I can wear neon undies with this pair and they still won’t show through. I’m wearing my Urban Outfitters gray platform lace ups. I really need some new summer shoes because these are my regulars. If anyone knows where I can get some cool platform shoes for the summer let me know in the comments! I hope everyone is having a good week! Till next time~

Sorry for the head cut off! I’ve been trying to have less space in my pics but I think I need to go back to how it was…disposible cameras…ya never know.

Happy Birthday Audrey

1157732_10201059222415572_1132944128_n

I am so delighted to share my birthday with the beautiful, influential, regal women that is Audrey Hepburn. May 4th, 2014 marks what would have been Hepburn’s 85th birthday. She is still regard today as a top icon in fashion and film. Her philanthropic work was selfless and still lives on through Audrey Hepburn’s Children Fund. So to celebrate my birthday I’m purchasing a Celine bag and lets celebrate Audrey’s by looking back at her time on and off the big screen.

Carrie Loves Chanel

Carrie was only planning to look, but don’t we all. Super French and super chic, Chanel should be the staple of any girls wardrobe. She is heading to lunch next at Perès et Filles located in St. Germain des Près thanks to the suggestion of fellow fashion blogger Lucandrob.
