#elimstyles | The Basics
.
Some styling ideas to try for the classic t-shirt & jeans combo:
▫️cuff the sleeves
▫️tuck in the shirt
▫️roll the cuff on skinny or straight leg denim and flash some ankle
.
How do you like to style the classics?

I'm discovering how to practice activism through my work one way is through sourcing secondhand or ethical & sustainable apparel for styling whenever possible.

Xo Mario + Tianna for being such amazing collaborators and sharing my vision

Gripe as I may about #raincouver, I do love the lush, green explosion that is our Spring. Which reminds me: my friend @alexamazzarello is showing her "The Dreaming Plant" series June 29. Get at her FB for details 🌿

#elimstyles | The art of imperfection
.
Today I learned the name of this practice through my friend Angie. We were at a warehouse sale and I tried on a pair of beautiful white leather heeled sandals that were my size and deeply discounted. It was seemingly a perfect match until I started running outfit and event scenarios for wearing them and they began to feel too dainty for S/S daily wear (which I wanted them to be apart of). I imagined how I would feel if the leather got scuffed or torn. It was not a nice feeling and I shared that with her. "You'd have to embrace the wabi-sabi of them" Angie said. The what now??
.
Wikipedia: Wabi-sabi is a concept in traditional Japanese aesthetics constituting a world view centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection
.
Buying new and knowing that they won't look fresh forever is a detail I'm accepting. What's new in my observation is being aware of this before making the decision to purchase.
.
Do you practice wabi-sabi before you buy?

Sweater: 2 yrs old
Dress: thrifted
Shoes: @veja (whose wabi-sabi I am happily accepting)

#elimstyles | Outerwear
.
A key deal breaking detail I consider in jackets, blazers and coats is something not easily seen: the liner.
Aside from denim jackets, I find that lined outerwear/layers wear better and longer.

Trench coat: 10 yrs old
Turtleneck: clothing swap
