Sorry for the radio silence guys! I’m honestly starting to believe there’s a curse on fashion week because every season I get sick on the last day. The past couple of days have been all about recovering and now I feel like I’m slowly coming back to life from this post FW coma.

Being a very clumsy person I rarely go for an all white look but for the second day of nyfw I made an exception, and it ended up being one of my favorites from last week. The shirt dress actually consists of two pieces, one actual shirt dress and a white shirt tied around the waist, kind of like a very minimalist take on grunge!

  1. This is a great outfit–I definitely love the whole white outfit look. However, I don’t think you know what grunge is and this outfit couldn’t be any further. I grew up in the 90’s and was a grunge kid, where what you wore was very much tied to the music you listened to. I know the fashion world is going through a 90’s run but just because people can add an earcuff to any outfit or tie a button down shirt around their waists doesn’t make it grunge. I really had to come out and say this even since the fashion world is (once again) bastardizing a whole era.

  2. Shoots: Thank you for your comment! As you probably know, my style is very minimalist and as far from grunge as it gets, but I do love playing around/experimenting with elements from different eras which is why I said it was ”Kind of like a very minimalist take on grunge”. Of course I’m aware that grunge is so much more than a shirt tied around the waist (I too grew up during the nineties), and perhaps I expressed myself in a clumsy way. Anyway, I’m really sorry if I offended you in any way that was definitely not my intention when posting this outfit.

  3. Love that this is a two piece and the second is an addition shirt for your waist! The blue accessories are a perfect addition.


  4. Well, fashion is all about expressing yourself. And i think tou did great with this look. And you made an interesting contrast calling it “minimalist grunge”
