Behind the Look
About two weeks ago, I posted this picture on my personal instagram that my sister from another mother Jessica Prudencio took and received great feedback about the look. I decided to break down the look and describe my take on it. As well, I have linked all the links to the respective pieces online!
The Jacket: Caracara from OOKPIK $800
This jacket was the one that I had for the whole winter. It definitely passes the test of a Canadian Winter. I can ensure you that I never felt the cold this winter. Made with Polyester (43%) and Cotton (57%) this jacket is fully waterproof and has 2 layer in the front. Over 4 exterior pockets and 3 inside, I was travelling with this jacket without the need of having a bag with me. The inside pocket are made big and they can even carry a notebook (true story!). Also, this jacket came with a Natural Raccoon on the hood but this was detachable and I decided to remove it.. I am personally not used to have fur, it tickles my face!
The Jeans: 3D Dark Aged Jeans Revend Super Slim Jeans by G-Star Raw $160
Hands Down these jeans are the comfiest jeans I ever wore in my life. They are my favorite jeans and I even slept with them. This is a genuine feedback since I paid for these jeans full price! I love them so much, I went back to G-Star Raw to buy another pair, full price again.. and now I’m considering getting a third pair. What is so special about these jeans you may ask me, the inside comfort, the fact that they are stretching, they fit my legs so perfectly, I feel like they were made just for me. 98% Cotton and 2% elastane, the 3D technology that G-Star used to made these jeans add more comfort for when you wear them. The back pockets are reinforced to be sure that you don’t rip them. In addition, not only they look good in this look, the modern look that they offer goes well with a nice blazer. Below is an image I took from the G-Star Website explaining the design behind the Revend Super Slim Jean.
The Shoes: Ultra Boost Uncaged Shoes by Adidas $260
The Adidas Ultra Boost Uncaged shoes should be in everyone shoe collection. (Good luck getting them, they are hard to find and most the nicest pair are sold out on the Adidas Website). They are comfortable, they look good and they are really light. (By really light I mean that both of them together weights less than 1.0 lbs) I didn’t wear them out often this winter, but since spring is coming and there’s less snow on the street I decided to take them out. Made for running.. they are perfect when you want to walk with style. The cushion in the shoe is the boost™, the ”most responsive cushioning ever: The more energy you give, the more you get” according to Adidas Website. They are flexible, the outsole (Continental™) has an extraordinary grip in wet and dry conditions and the ”STRETCHWEB” rubber outsole flexes underfoot for an energised ride. The Adidas Website does give a lot of great information about why this shoes is probably the best type of shoe to run with but between you and I, I won’t run in Montreal’s Street with an over $250 pair of shoe. Haaa! Below is an image that I took from Adidas Website.
”Colour Core Black/Dark Grey Heather Solid Grey/Footwear White (S80698)”
The Glasses: Highstreet Sunglasses by Ray-Ban $175
Probably the cherry on top for this look, the Ray Ban glasses are a must. The style of these glasses is modern and they feature a modern design that . Available in 12 different design, these glasses have a larger rounded rounded square lenses and gives the Hollywood look that I definitely want to have. The pair that I have on this picture has a red interior that shines when the sun hits it.
Thank you for reading this and please let me know what you think could be a great fit to transition this look to Spring!
