I think it's pretty safe to say that a lot has changed since the birth of my blog, but throughout those two years, one thing has remained consistent: my love for simple, classic pieces that go the distance. And so to celebrate the opening of the Yves Saint Laurent: Style is Eternal exhibition, I've decided to pay homage to that in the form of this outfit, featuring some of my all-time favourite pieces to date. Some I've had for years, some I've had for just a few months, but all of them have made their way into my every day wardrobe. And chances are, you'll be seeing a lot more of them on the blog for years to come.
Now I don't know about you guys, but for me, fashion is something that I look to in magazines and runway shows. It's an industry that's so indecisive that it changes it's mind every six months, and it's something that can both bring people together and tear them apart. The fashion world evolves so often that it's almost impossible to keep up with. I mean, just think about it - the entire industry operates one season ahead of itself just to keep up with, well, Itself.
Style however, is like that one old friend who's relationship with you never changes. It's a relationship that you work on over time until you just wake up one morning and you no longer have to try anymore - it all just comes together naturally. We always hear others talk about how style is a reflection of who we choose to be, but in reality I don't think we ever get a say in how our style evolves over time at all. It's almost as natural as learning how to speak. For example, a pink frilly dress on my body is just completely foreign to me, and something I'll never quite understand. But a pair of leather trousers? Consider them my native tongue.
