While I woke up “mourning” my leaving of the beautiful Island of Victoria, my newsfeed was busy blowing up about Olivia Palermo’s lack of (and I quote) “sweat glands” and the fact that she can seemingly pull off the weight of a mid-length leather skirt, despite the scorching temperatures (where?!) of the August Summer heat. *yawn*
Don’t get me wrong – I give props to Ms. Palermo (pardon me, Mrs.) for being able to push the boundaries and somehow sky rocket herself from a semi-reality TV persona to a significant style icon; however, it is my personal belief that the bigger star is none other than Miroslava Duma – the petite, but very powerful force behind Buro 24/7, whose Instagram page instantaneously sparks insane jealousy in my fashion covetable mind. From deep V-neck sweaters over romantic flawy dresses to leather capes over dresses, oversized sweaters paired with knee-high boots, Ms Duma always manages to make a bold statements, and I would imagine a major entrance at each event that she attends. And while I sometimes receive a sigh of disapproval by the mention of her name due to a somewhat recent image incident that prompted her team to release a very public apology, I remain true to my fashionably forgiving persona and look forward to seeing more of her on and off the front rows.
Below are just a couple of the thousands of outfits Ms Duma makes me drool over on a daily basis, while forcing me to urgently ravage through my closet in search of items to complete the fashionable wave of inspiration, swirling through my mind.
