Fashion ‘Round the World: What people wore in Spring ’14
Oh hello, neglected blog.
Where to even begin?
I could start with a mountain of excuses like “I’ve been stuck in a hot bunker-like edit suite on a film I’ve been cutting since 2009 and there are times, especially the times when an earthquake is raging at 9pm on a Friday and I’m under my desk clinging for life, that I fear I may not emerge from the experience alive.” But that would just be dramatic and laughable to the billions of people who can actually juggle a job and a blog. Hats off to you, my soldiers of diligence.
Seriously though, while I’ve never been a great multitasker, there’s so much I want to do with this wee blog and I promise to deliver at least some of it. A very good fraction of it. And a good fraction of that, most likely when the film that never ends, ends. Which will be….?
And therein lies my problem. But enough seriousness — we have FASHION to peruse!
I’m gonna try doing these posts seasonally instead of monthly (spring totally starts in February, right?). And maybe include a bit called “Trends I Loved.” That would look pretty much exactly like this:
TRENDS I LOVED: Cropped pants, cropped hair, trainers with everything, menswear-inspired everything, peasant skirts, beige.
Alrighty, then. Best looks of Spring ’14, GO!

NEW YORK: Voluminous outerwear, Part 2.
NETHERLANDS: Nikes with your 3K handbag? Totally buying it.
COPENHAGEN: Snowy, snowy runway.
MILAN: Be still my 70s, secretary blouse, houndstooth, fedora-loving heart.

NEW YORK: Because who doesn’t love the “Peasant Schoolgirl?”
NETHERLANDS: Office Babe strikes again.
MILAN: Modern Book Nerd.
