CONFESSIONS OF A CLOSET RAIDER

July 30, 2016


I have a confession to make. I've been shamelessly raiding Emil's closet for years, and he... well, he's been pretending he is ok with it. At first, it was a few t-shirts here and there, I'd borrow them to wear around the house and to sleep in, but with time, I started making full use of his sartorial splendor by borrowing everything from shirts ( this used to be his favorite plaid shirt, and now it's my favorite plaid shirt ), sweaters, jackets ( asked to wear this cute varsity number once, and now it proudly hangs on my side of the closet ), and even jeans. Actually, especially jeans, because some of my favorite boyfriend jeans used to be his... he he



Now, this brings me to today's outfit and the latest gem I borrowed stole from him. I've had my eye on these Dior Homme sunnies ever since he got them a few months ago. Unfortunately, given my track record, his been keeping pretty close tabs on them. That is until a few weeks ago, when I casually asked to borrow them for a shoot and he totally fell for that:) Ever since then, they mysteriously complete every outfit unlike any other pair of sunglasses I currently own, so I keep "borrowing" them:) Now, I wouldn't call them my Dior sunnies just yet, but I'm pretty confident we'll get there soon enough! :)

I really enjoyed reading this, Annabelle! Your blog is such an inspiration to me, and I also love to steal my boyfriend's clothes whenever I can (even though I'm an XS and he's like an XL lol!). So glad there's someone else out there who can relate hehe :) Hope you are having an amazing weekend! xo, sharon

Chanel famously "borrowed" items from her lover's closets.

I think the folk inspired pattern on your scarf is very cool. I´d love to have a similar one in my collection.

Sveiki Annabelle!

I absolutely LOVE interchanging menswear into my wardrobe. I think even just the slightest tinge of androgyny can give any basic look a subtle edge that's just right. It's even better when it's menswear so the blurting of the line is more authentic. It's even better when it's your SO's. I used to wear my grandfather's plaid shirt incessantly after he passed away and I don't know what it was about it, but it just lay perfectly and was super worn in...it was perfect. I also have a curvy butt/thighs with a smaller waist so it's IMPOSSIBLE to find boyfriend jeans in the women's department, so I always buy my boyfriends from the men's section.

Love this look. You by far have the best photography out there in the blogosphere, BTW. Hands down.
