I confirm. It's not true. I have not forgotten about my blog. Fashforward is back! First of all, happy belated 2012 everyone! Hope this year brings you all love and smiles and never forget to stay inspired and fashforward :) Though it's been a while since my last post, blogging has never left my mind, just tucked in the back at times. There just doesn't seem like there's enough hours in a day and fitting fashforward into my schedule seems progressively more challenging. That said, I know I can always find comfort here as it allows me to somewhat express my "creativity", which is something, very sadly, lacking in my 9-5. As I get older, I realize that I seemingly spend less time doing things for myself. So, as one of my many new year's resolutions, I hope to spend more time to do the things I enjoy and blogging is most certainly one of them!

Quite some time ago, one of my favorite followers asked what was my definition of effortless chic. It's always been on the back of my mind to dedicate a post in reply to her and I think this outfit might just answer the question. To be honest, effortless chic to me is really just a sugar-coated denomination of lazy days x androgynous. That said, my version never leaves the timeless staples: a classic graphic t-shirt, fitted black skinnies, simply-structured coat, feminine heels and a mandatory incorporation of leather. Here, I'm wearing a few items from my stash I had brought back from Europe and this Parisian t-shirt has to be my favorite purchase. Still in the process of sorting and editing the thousands of pictures I took on my excursion so photo diary still to come! In the meantime, how are you liking my new banner?

Happy Movember!

First off, I must apologize for neglecting my blog for the past few weeks. Don't be mistaken, I haven't disowned fashforward and I will hopefully be back on track once I return from my vacation. Second, I'm (was) in PARIS!! First stop was Barcelona, then Paris and now currently in London for a few more days. I will do a proper photo diary post once I have all my photos uploaded, which may take a while since I brought 3 cameras with me :) In the meantime, hope these pictures will suffice.

I'm seeing a lot of mixed prints for this coming fall and I'm loving the idea of mixing animal patterns. When I came across I Spy DIY and Style Scrapbook's DIY versions of the American Apparel over-sized clutch, I was inspired to personalize my own too. And now its my default bag for this summer :) Orange wasn't the first colour that came to my mind but it worked surprisingly well with the snake skin's neutral tones. I will be posting a tutorial later this week, stay tuned!
