I was curating the perfect collection of clothes and accessories for a trip to Paris and Amsterdam in June. THAT'S NOT HAPPENING ANYMORE! I guess I'll have to model the 20+ looks in the house. Here's a few of the stand-out pieces in my "cancelled trip to Europe" suitcase.
I had to move mountains to get these Dior D-Trap ankle boots (available at Dior). These fishnet cutout boots were a key piece on the runway. The reinvented combat boot has a leather flap with double buckles and a few signature Dior features - the bee, gold Christian Dior logo and black star on the sole. These boots would have turned heads in Paris - maybe next year..
I'm a HUGE fan of Moschino t-shirts. They're high quality and make a statement. I was planning to pair this Moschino BULLCHIC! t-shirt (available at Farfetch) with a Tibi turquoise jacquard midi skirt and the Dior D-Trap boots. It would have been my Carrie Bradshaw in Paris moment. No worries - this t-shirt will not go to waste.
My sunglasses collection is overflowing, BUT I managed to fit one more pair in there. These DiorCamp aviator sunglasses (available at Farfetch) were made for me. The straight pink arms don the CD logo and the slightly tinted pink lens adds sofiticaticon. LOVE!
Unfortunately, I wasn't able to snag this Christian Dior Book Tote (available at Dior). It is gorgeous. The Toile de Jouy embroidered pattern was inspired by Mr. Dior's muse. I love the complexity of the pattern, along with the grey shades and Christian Dior signature on the front.
The Dior book tote is timeless and while it is reinvented each season, the old ones never go out of style. Interesting fact - you can collapse these totes and pack them nicely in your suitcase.
The iconic Moschino teddy bear has a three dimensional effect and a playful vibe. The teddy bear makes an appearance each season and is super cute. I like that this one is bursting through a piece of art. From a fashion obsessed state of mind - this Moschino teddy bear t-shirt (available at Farfetch) is a piece of art.
I have a very basic hairstyle - a slightly slanted bob, colored black. It's chic, but you can't do much with it. Albeit, hair clips do add a little flare. I purchased this Off-White two-toned hair clip (available at Revolve) to hold my tiny strands together and add a little contrast. The white and black clip holds my thin hair nicely and looks great against my black hair.

I'm ending 2019 with the ultimate must-have list. I purchased a home this year and have been cheating on fashion for decor. Now that I'm settled in my palace, I need a little fashion fix.
The ASAI Panel Contrast Tie-Dye Top (available at Farfetch) is half jumper and half mesh. There's a lot going on here - scalloped trims along the cropped tie-dye mesh and a multi-colored wool panel with a rolled neck. Perfection. I'm gonna pair this smorgasbord of a top with khaki high waisted joggers and embellished booties. Oh, and maybe I'll also don the Dior camo book tote - We'll get to that..
I love Christian Dior bracelets and had to have the Dior Dark Blue J'Adior Bracelet Set (available at Dior). I like to mix and match bracelets to create new combinations. I have the pink and Burgundy Dior J'Adior set and the dark blue set will match perfectly. These cotton woven bracelets have been on trend for a while and are still going..
Christian Dior has a lovely and trendy collection of bracelets, including the Dior White Crystal Clair D Lune Palladium Finish Bracelet (available at Dior). I love the juxtaposition of woven bracelets and pearls or crystals. This one is on my wish list. Hint hint..
From the moment I saw this Acne Studios Oversized Shearling Coat (available at MyTheresa) walk the runway, I had to have it. The retail version is even better than the cropped runway style. This insanely warm coat is decadent. I had to size down twice, but the hassle of return shipping was worth it. The shearling-trimmed suede panels give this coat a modern Marlboro look. This coat is heavy and super warm. LOVE!
I have been lusting over a Dior Tote for a few months. This one wasn't on my list, but rather an "allow me to mend your heart" gift - Best Husbano ever! I'm bummed that I won't spend Christmas with my entire family, BUT getting a Dior tote kinda numbs the pain!
This Christian Dior Book Tote Camouflage Embroidered Canvas Bag (available at Dior) was made for me. I love camo print and camo green is my favorite. This unexpected gift lifted my spirits and earned him some snuggles!
If only I had the body to don an Alexander Wang cropped sweatshirt.. One can dream. This Alexander Wang Embroidered Cropped Cotton Mock-Neck Sweatshirt (available at Modaoperandi) would pair perfectly with high-rise joggers, for a chic, street-wear look. This is my style, but Imma have to loose a few pounds to don this cropped silhouette.
