minimalism

I (ALEX) HAVE BEEN THINKING ABOUT REINVENTING MY LOOK. I WOULDN'T REALLY CALL WHAT I WEAR NOW A "LOOK." I BASICALLY JUST BUY WHAT I LIKE, NOT NECESSARILY THINKING ABOUT HOW THE DIFFERENT PIECES IN MY CLOSET WILL FIT TOGETHER TO CREATE AN OVERALL LOOK. AT FIRST I WAS THINKING ABOUT GOING FOR SOMETHING KIND OF ROCKER-GLAM. BUT IT'S HARD TO FIND A GOOD PAIR OF LEATHER PANTS THAT AREN'T SUPER EXPENSIVE! AND YOU CAN'T HAVE A ROCKER LOOK WITHOUT LEATHER PANTS! SO I'VE DECIDED TO GO FOR A SIMPLER LOOK THAT WONT BREAK MY BUDGET: MINIMALISM. I LIKE MINIMALISM BECAUSE IT'S VERY CLEAN, FRESH, AND ALWAYS LOOKS CHIC WITHOUT TRYING TOO HARD.

I WAS INSPIRED BY THE FALL 2010 RTW COLLECTION BY STELLA McCARTNEY:

00270m
00260m
00150m
00140m
00110m
00060m
00020m
(VIA STYLE.COM)
TODAY I WAS BROWSING THROUGH MY FAVORITE WEBSITE, LOOKBOOK.NU (REMEMBER I TOLD YOU IT'S ADDICTIVE) AND I SAW THIS GIRL:

HER NAME IS PATRYCIA REGULSKA AND I'M KIND OF OBSESSED WITH HER STYLE. HERE ARE A COUPLE OF HER OUTFITS:

722327_DSC_2644STTTT

(VIA LOOKBOOK.NU; SHE ALSO HAS A BLOG: PUCHAT.BLOGSPOT.COM)
I'M DEFINITELY GOING TO TAKE SOME NOTES FROM HER STYLE AND TRY TO INCORPORATE IT INTO MY WARDROBE.

FINALLY (SORRY THIS POST IS SO LONG!) HERE ARE A LIST OF ITEMS I THINK YOU NEED IN YOUR CLOSET WHEN TRYING TO PUT TOGETHER A MINIMALIST LOOK:
1) SLIM, CROPPED AT THE ANKLE BLACK, WHITE AND BEIGE PANTS
2) SKINNY DARK JEANS
2) A COUPLE OF SIMPLE T-SHIRTS (WHITE, BLACK, AND GREY)
4) SOME NICE OVER SIZED SWEATERS
5) A COUPLE OF STATEMENT PIECES THAT STILL MAINTAIN A SIMPLE SHAPE (KIND OF LIKE THE LACE SHIRT PATRYCIA IS WEARING IN THE LAST PHOTO)

OVERALL, I WOULD WEAR SIMPLE SHOES THAT ARE STILL FUN, LIKE STUDDED BOOTIES, AND I WOULD KEEP THE COLOR PALETTE PRETTY BASIC MAYBE ADDING IN A POP OF COLOR EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE.

WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE MINIMALISTIC LOOK? WHAT IS YOUR LOOK?
