I’m participating in Kendi Everyday’s 30 x 30 winter challenge! What is that, you may ask? Simply put, starting February 1st, you only wear 30 items from your closet for 30 days. The challenge is to remix those pieces over and over again for an entire month. It is minimalist, it is zen, it is meant for those of us who feel like we have nothing to wear and therefore have to go to Aritzia to buy something new. Check out her past posted remixes here!
Here are my items! Please excuse my shoddy photo shop skills.
Today in my Color Theory and Practice class, my friend Alex presented this amazing 40 by 40 grid where he hand painted each individual square. It took him 16 hours.
Time and dedication to beauty is something we value here at Haus of du Monstre (I realize that’s redundant). If you feel your values match ours, click here to recommend Café du Monstre to the fashion directory this week, even though it’s been broken for the last three…
I remember there was a time back in my 2nd year of college when I wore my black netted hat, and I though I wore it, I was scared of being made fun of. Even with a really simple black outfit too! I think I’ve definitely come a long way in terms of how much I actually care about what people think. Just wait till you see what’s under the coat…
Fancy shmanchy triptych to start today’s post! Wearing colors in the winter is something I strive for big, big time, even if I tone it down with military basics like I have in this picture. Bright lipstych is also necessary, of course…
Last night I went to my friend’s 21st birthday party that his girlfriend (also my friend, Sid) organized. The theme of the party was modernism. Sid ended up going as a dead Virginia Woolf (ghost-modernism), and I went as Post-modernism (see below):
What a glorious morning! I’m absolutely in love with how the crinoline makes this skirt look fuller (even though it’s peeping out a bit in front). I picked up the skirt from Anthropologie two years ago - luckily it’s made of wool so it’s perfect for this weather!
Hey! I follow your blog, but only a bit recently have I been really reading your posts.
I see that you have been to Dublin, and Paris, and you posted that you will finally be in a place for more than 6 months. I really really, want to do that! Travel all around I mean! What do you do, if i may ask? Are you a student? or do you work travel? Its really hard for me to apply to a good university in a far away place because everything is so expensive :/
Thank you for listening, and I hope you answer my question! :)
I was lucky enough to study abroad in Paris for about 4 months, and during that time I spent 10 days in the British Isles. Even though I go to a university with good study abroad programs, it was still really expensive to live in Paris (even food is unbelievable), and of course I had been saving up for my trip to Dublin, Edinburgh and London for awhile.
Even though I’ve been able to travel so young, I’m sure you’ll have many opportunities when you get a job and make some money to travel on your own, or maybe even get a job where you’ll get to travel!
