Wear/Where | Mix and match

There’s something magic about pulling together a look that feels a bit off-kilter, yet wouldn’t-change-a-thing perfect. Bonus points when it looks so, so comfortable. In this case, a low-key take on blush and merlot makes the leap from street style to striking living room. Wear: Sara Escudero of Collage Vintage on Who What Wear. Where: Vanessa Boz’s London home in Milk Magazine.

Wear/Where | 1980s cool, 1970s glam

When it comes to foolproof colour combinations, few are as glamourous as black and brass. The 1970s knew it, the 1980s knew it, and now, my friends, we’re getting to know it once again. Sure, it feels understated as an accessory, but boy does it feel bold as part of your decor. Wear: Black loafers with brass […]

Wear/Where | To great lengths

Go long. That’s a sports reference I don’t quite get (something to do with football?) but, as a style and design reference, I get it 100%. And it’s a slam dunk in my books (I know, I know, wrong sport, but you get where I’m going with it). Wear: The Casablancas Maxi Dress by Free People […]

Wear/Where | Metals and Pastels

Add metallics to any old thing and you have instant glamour. Mix in some pastels and you have the most winningest of winning combinations. Wear: Karen Walker One Splash sunglasses. Where: The extraordinarily cool Shugaa Dessert Bar in Bangkok, which is inspired by sugar crystals and, just like sugar itself, something I can’t get enough of.

Wear/Where | Peace Out

Give peace a chance. Surround yourself with it; live it, wear it, accessorize your office with it. Wear: An outfit with more personality than you ever thought possible in such a neutral palette (as seen on Crush Cul de Sac). Where: A custom neon sign by Vancouver’s Endeavour Neon (coolest desk accessory I’ve ever seen!). P.S. Metropolette started a […]

Wear/Where | Indigo Girls

I don’t think there’s anyone who was more passionate about indigo than Oliver Sacks but I like to think I’d come close. Whether you wear it or choose to paint with it, it’s a heavenly colour. Wear: A bold blue plaid (as seen at NYFW). Where: An abstract painting by Pierre Soulages.

Wear/Where | Dark Florals

Florals? For fall? Groundbreaking. (No, really.) When they’re deep and dark and as moody as these are, they’re awesome in autumn. Wear: A flowy kimono with your favourite mom jeans (as seen here). Where: A bit of wow for your walls by Ellie Cashman.

Wear/Where | Mustard yellow

Mustard yellow doesn’t sound all that glamorous but, boy, does it look it. It’s like a little bit of muted sunshine for your closet and your floor. Wear: A day dress at Totokaelo (one of my favourite stops in Seattle). Where: A kitchen (with art in it!) designed by INT2 Architecture.

Wear/where | Tropic Like it’s Hot

These florals are wild. They’ll make you feel like you’re en route to somewhere tropical and glamourous, whether you’re wearing them or hanging them up on your wall. Wear: Gucci Pre-Fall 2015. Where: Framed print by Lulu deKwaitkowski.

Where/Wear | Lights, camera, sequins!

‘Tis the season to light up long, dark nights. How? One of two ways: with a stunning brass chandelier (my dining room needs this) or a party-perfect sequin skirt. Where: The stunning Dandelion 32 Chandelier by Tony Duquette. Wear: A sequin skirt from Anthropologie.
