And oversized coats. Especially when they color match.
Had to restrain myself for devouring the whole block (at least until the shoot was over) of this lightweight, cocoa filled piece of heaven that very intentionally coordinates with the statement piece of this post, the square shoulder coat.
The main reason these 2 are (tactfully?) combined here is simple as math, one leads to another aka if I don’t stop consuming all the cocoa tree beans this earth has ever produced, chances are (all of them) that I will only be fitting oversized coats. I might grab a pair or two beforehand just in case, right?
Coats come and go, chocolate is forever. I love you chocolate. Faithfully yours, Filio

I’m fairly certain Red Riding Hood is sick and tired of red by now, so here’s a modern version of the much talked about outfit, especially dedicated to her. She’s been through a lot, we owe her this much.
Swap your trustworthy statement coat with a similar alternative, the hood is mandatory, yellow being the prominent choice, to lure in potential strangers, stalkers, perverts (aka wolves). Ditch your comfy sweater, hoodie, warm top for a perforated leather one and get ready to receive compliments from all forest creatures. As for the bottom, shorts are your go to solution, you’ve got to show off those legs while you can! Keep your footwear on the flat side, you know too well that you WILL NEED to run at some point, so avoid heels but embrace fur. If it’s wolves fur the better.
And enjoy the (forest) ride.

And even if you don’t (case in point), there’s always a t-shirt. Showing your -printed- cleavage has never been more trendy and topical, especially when it’s subtly associated with breast cancer awareness (check All You Need Is Style’s participation here). Statement printed tees have long been approved by the celebrity sept, Queen Cara included (with a boobs t-shirt nonetheless) and what better way to say what you want than to wear it.
So there, I said it. Tits.

And alternate realities altogether.
I prefer unicorns to horses (and I really like horses), stardust to plain air and magic cakes to chocolate swirl ones. It’s just that I’m still searching for that mystical hole to transport me to the the other side where everything’s pink-er and slightly enchanted. Until then I’m keeping myself pet-clad, chocolate fed and relatively confused.
I’m sure I’ll find it someday.

In the land of skin tight latex, everything is well, shinier and really bodycon. Apart from the sartorial significance of this very modish (apparently) material (Chanel’s futuristic ad campaign is full of it), I basically bought these leggings to remind myself I have to loose a pound or two and then stay at that.
Like a truthful weight scale, only better.
Wear with long sweaters, fluffy cardigans and caution.

Or at least I like to think that. This fluffy, marshmallow like mohair sweater, waiting patiently in a “Never Too Many” hanger in my closet since I got back from PFW, reminds me a lot of how I usually picture life above clouds. Like a pastel sunset, light as air (can I please add gravity free to that?), and totally care free (calories don’t count here for sure).
In short, somewhere proper for a Care Bear to live in.

Black-white-grey. Classic, empowering, easy. A go to color combo whether it’s the office you’re heading to or the bar downtown (we prefer the second option), your black leather pants will never fail you (it’s worth a good investment here). I pair them with grey hoodies to tone them down or match them with lace insert button downs for more of a special occasion.
More trustworthy than the LBD.
How do you wear yours?

For this adventure you will need a fireplace, a pack of hot chocolate (marshmallows make this so much better), warm, cashmere, beautifully crafted socks and good company. Create your own winter wonderland and jump in (comfy couch and american prime TV series always a plus). The first three are kind of easy, for the latter part, may the Force be with you.
Dog (plush or real) also does the trick by the way.
