|The new Mango F/W collection is all about layering and creating textures. We are so loving the animal prints and leather!|
This fashion show is going to be one of the most memorable fashion shows (at least for me) because I had such a hard time interpreting the "luxe grunge" theme. I know some bloggers have already posted this dilemma prior to the event but believe us when I say it was a really tough theme!
Luxe. Grunge. Apparently, the trend is also known as "boho-chic" and was popularized by the Olsen Twins.
Olsen Twins-- so okaaaaaaay. That was not what I had in mind! I think I got stuck on the "grunge" idea. My peg? Taylor Momsen.

Okay, I admit it. Even if everyone told me what luxe grunge should look like, I don't think I'd listen. I'd still interpret it like this-- just because I love doing the rocker chic look. Besides, all the outfits I had in mind entailed that I go shop for some key pieces which is impossible given I'm super broke right now :( So I made do with whatever was available in my closet which in this case is my trusty little black dress! To make it more grunge, I decided to DIY a body chain to go with it.
|I did this for four hours straight and despite my lack of expertise in accessory-making, I think I did a fine job. Haha, proud? :P|
Unlike Ninin, my peg was the Olsen Twins. But like Nin, I'm also broke so I just mixed several old pieces that I have at home.I looked at some of the Olsen twins' pictures and noticed how they preferred wearing knits (and plaid) with black. So what better to wear at a Mango fashion event than a Mango knit top, right?
