I think people know me for my rather “feminine” and “chic” taste in fashion–mostly because that’s what I tell people, that’s how I market myself, and that’s the style that I am immediately drawn to as it appeals mostly to my aesthetics. Rather unfortunately, my personality is far from “feminine”–in an ironic twist of fate, I am the total opposite of how I dress. In reality, I’m not your typical frivolous girly-girl, I’m actually very gruff, tough, and dominating (in select aspects, of course).
Thankfully, given my rather unforgiving personality, I’m pretty much versatile when it comes to fashion (or so I’d like to think). It’s easy for me to play up my closet’s dynamics and shift from casual to classy at any given moment. For this particular outfit, I opted to be a little bit more casual with a no-nonsense, edgy but effortless look.
Mango’s Fall/Winter 2012 collection is just as ambidextrous as my personality. They have pieces that range from feminine to androgynous to comfortable to sophisticated. Given this, I shopped to my heart’s content, got my fix of texture-filled pieces and voila: a wonderful combination of knits and leather, casual enough to move in but chic enough to be seen in, momentarily making me hang my sparkly, fluid outfits for a chance to indulge my fighting spirit.
I love how Mango pushes fashion-related boundaries and adds the “edge” to the term:”edgy.” If I’m in the mood to purchase scene-stealing pieces, I always make it a point to drop by Mango to sift through their stunning offerings. Before I show you their lookbook, here are some photos of me first:
And at long last, the most awaited Mango Fall/Winter 2012 collection lookbook, in collaboration with one of the greatest super models on earth: Kate Moss. Mango fans, eat your hearts out:
