It's JUST Cavalli




(Photos by Zainab T.)


(Jacket: Just Cavalli/ T-shirt: Romwe/Necklace:Gabo/ Jeans: Zara/ Shoes: Shoemint/ Bracelets/ Marc by Marc Jacobs/ Bag: Coach)



When it comes to mixing a plethora of punchy prints, Roberto Cavalli is a true sartorial bartender, breathing new energy in his youthful line. He's a true genius in cultivating the perfect balance between elegance and sports wear for a contemporary look. Playing with underwater influences, Cavalli's lines are a capsule wardrobe for the Summer lovin' girl about town. It should come as no surprise then, that the minute this Just Cavalli jacket and my [grossly unhygienic] body came into contact, it was pure irrevocable love and completely transformed me into what can only be described as a psychotic dancing robot?

 

We've  already established in the past that fashion is, at its heart, a transformative super hero with brain-altering powers. And alter my brain it did, for these fun n' funky prints instilled a feeling of freedom n' fun (see what I did there) and inspired me to ditch the shackles of conventional blogger 'poses' that so frequently don my blog, opting instead for taking pictures that truly reflect my personality (and subsequently how I feel when I wore this jacket). That's right folks, when I'm not busy being a shallow and vapid fashion blogger, I pose like a deranged moron, whilst channeling my inner rap artist; except, unlike your conventional rap artist, I rap about nice things (like YO GIRL, IMA TAKE OFF YOUR CLOTHES... and fold them for you real nicely).


Now, I'm not going to sit here and bitch and moan about the conventional blogger poses we are bestowed with ever so often; the flamingo, hailing a cab, taking all of your angst and pouring it into a single piece (or constipation as I like to call it), trying to point your toes inwards while maintaining the illusion of 'dat gap', because well, I fully plan on bitching and moaning about it at a later date and because well, I too am guilty of some of the embarrassing poses listed above (I once hailed a cab in the middle of a fucking forest). I'm not sure why we as bloggers feel the need to emulate (though failing miserably) models and Vogue editorials, but why can't we just have fun in our pictures and try to encapsulate our personalities? Why must we always pose like we've got hernia or sclerosis to justify our outfit choices? 


I say, embrace your the psychotic, unstable and delirious aspects of your personality and photograph them! If you want to pick flowers from the gardens of millionaires, and subsequently adorn them in your hair, only to be later abused by the said landlords, YOU GO AHEAD AND JUST DO IT, NIKE. Too bad my squatting pictures didn't make the final cut here, it would certainly explain the holes in my jeans, because like I say, you haven't lived life until you've squatted for about 20 minutes a day. Also too bad: farts aren't photographable. But seriously guys, let's just have fun with fashion. Because at the end of the day, it's JUST Cavalli. No biggie.

  3. OMG OMG I MADE IT YESSSS!!! My name that is! haha. This is by far your best blog post in term of posing of course. I didn't even realize you posed in so many different ways...oh man, I remember the landlord yelling at us, and then remember random people (including girls) honking for some reason....and then we were almost fined also I believe for parking in no parking. After this tho we went to SAKS and our then things changed...drastically. I miss you!! This jacket is succha beauty, and the flowers are so pretty too! This area was gorgeous. COME BACK.

    HYPED.

    Agreed. The usual poses are so boring...cmon ppl, bring out your craziness into your pictures as well!

  9. I always look forward to reading your posts--they're always hilarious. And I love the pictures! So funny! It's great to see your personality in the pictures :) Seriously, last year a blazer, t-shirt and jeans was my go-to outfit. I like dresses better now...but I never get tired of that combination!

  12. Oh yes, Roberto Cavalli is a master at mixing colors and prints. I'm still trying to learn his magic, but he must have been born with it. You seem to do a fine job though. Loving the jacket. It's a master piece indeed.

  16. Rox! I love this look! You are right about the many myriad of poses, too! I know you popped on the Paris tshirt for me. Why, oh why aren't you editing Vogue? Does anyone from Conde Nast read this blog!!! They jolly well should be. PS having your jaw broken has obviously been good for you. Xxxx

  28. Being someone who is just purely mostly beauty oriented when I see ladies like you who have so much fun with fashion I totally envy and think about how i can spruce up my style now and again! I love the jacket, it seems light and easy to wear with pretty much a lot of things and those white heels are killing it!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Ha! very true about the stock standard poses we use, I try and mix it up every now and then, and always try to end my poses with a fun photo, but some of these are so great!
    your outfit, and your happiness glows in these pics! they were wonderfully cheerful to look at at work. :D

  32. Well, I guess it's not easy to find the way you should pose and to look great when you take pictures for a fashionblog. Too many fashionbloggers, almost the same way of posing. But today your pictures are different and you look so refreshed! Maybe it's a mix of several things that make it - colours, clothes, poses, smile.

  39. This is definitely one of my favorites of your outfits! Everything about it is perfect, from your yellow Coach bag to your super hot heels to your gorgeous bracelets! And I am totally on board with the cliche poses- I'd like to say that I'm a bit more of a candid girl. Just throw me in a field and let me twirl and snap photos away! I've never been big on the hand-on-the-hip or the pouty lips, haha!

  49. Yes I love this post for your robotic dance moves! This is what the world needs more of - especially bloggers. A nice backdrop and someone doing the funky chicken. Personality people! I find it hard to believe that most whom write beautiful snippets under each post yet display super serious poses have to have a sense of humor! I hope you start a trend darling - Yeesus knows I will be when I ever post an outfit post that is.

  51. You're so totally right, my dear :-) ...!! Fashion should be our passion, express our personality & mood! Sometimes it's appropriate to scream into other faces on the street or into the (photographer's) camera - sometimes it's the right time to hug everyone and grin into the camera :-) ... However - I love all of your poses. Doesn't matter if they're "blogger poses" or quite natural poses - cause you and your looks are so inspiring & bright, my dear! - Kisses from Vienna,

  58. This post totally says it all. I love how you just look like you're having so much fun... that's what makes you truly a UNIQUE fashion blogger. Not only do you have style, brains, and phenomenal writing skills, you do it with fun and authenticity.
    I KNOW, why can't farts be photographicable? I mean, wouldn't that make the most perfect accessory? Imagine a puff of pink wisp coming out of your backside, enhancing the photos with a gentle fog like mist... that would be awesome

  64. I love blogging, however, posing for photos is the bain of my existence! I'm not a model....or actress. I just showcase my style and call it a day. I like the idea of displaying some personality, but only when it's genuine. Me and my camera stand are quite close but we haven't reached that level of openess just yet, lol.

    ....but let's talk about how, when, and where you need to send that jacket to me!!!! HAUTE!

  65. DANG GIRL. You are hilarious. I think you'd make a great rapper, btw. I'd like to join you in your rapping endeavors, if you ever seek to do it. We could talk about respecting women and all that good stuff. YEAH!

I'm definitely guilty of succumbing to "blogger poses", though I have never yet managed to not smile in a photo yet. I'm jealous of people who look good with a serious face on, 'cos I just look p*ssed off! :)

  82. Hahaha I always enjoy reading your texts, they totally crack me up! The passage about the poses is SO good! I should try the hailing a cab pose in my kitchen next time ;)

    As for the outfit you look stunning as susual! You totally rock this bold print blazer with the jeans! I think hanging in the shop I would find this blazer ugly, but the way you wear it is awesome! Also love your hair and make up! Sometimes you remind me a bit of Mila Kunis! :)
