The clothes that we wear are representations of so many things. They are the burden of beauty of the times. They are the rituals and customs we create around a subculture dedicated to something that slides over our bodies. Clothing is so much more than just sown fabric. Our Vintage Vibes above captures all the nuances of getting dressed; this moment of time is a collective effort, a little tribe we create to surround ourselves with women who, literally, stand with us.
We are loving the crisp, fresh stripes we are seeing on the runways this season. This look is so stark and head-turning this time of year, when everyone else around the city starts with the florals and pastels. Altuzarra has made feminine stripes into an art form: sleek, sexy and modern. The key to wearing your stripes this season is contrast: think asymmetry, leather, and fit. You can can see this exemplified by the Cushnie Et Ochs neoprene stripped dress with contrasting panels in stripes. Our favourite deployment of this trend is Valentino‘s midi-length two-tone dress. The jail-house stripes are an accessible way to look current at any age.

We here at FFF love a good deal. Our motto is about being true to your own style, trekking your own path and defying the pitfalls of mindless branding. That is not to say we don’t love high-end designers; we just realize that most of us want the look without the hefty price tag.
These matte black beauties are inspired by Double Back Pearl Earrings. Steal the deal at Aldo for almost an identical replica and wear the stunning minimalist studs with almost any outfit.

Need a spring pick me up? These Coach Moccasins is FFF’s steal of the week. The leather is buttery smooth and the quality is excellent. The androgyny of the shoe is what makes it so easy to wear. Chic and easy for the work appropriate crowd; fun and unexpected for the fashion forward. This shoe has exact feel of a Gucci loafer, or a Tod boat shoe at a fraction of the cost. Snatch it up before they disappear on someone else’s stylish foot.
