For my first /girl outfit post, I knew I had to bring it with the most insane item available on SlasherGirl.com. I mean, can you even handle this bodysuit? I had the pleasure of attending the swim week show for Minimale Animale and remember seeing this piece close the show with a literal BANG BANG. We just had to have it on /girl and I had to have it in my swim drawer. xx
It’s finally here, y’all. That online store I have been hinting at for 6 months….well it’s official!!!!!
I want to formally introduce my baby: SlasherGirl.com
Below is my opening letter, I hope you all enjoy the store and find it inspiring. Thank-you so much for checking in on me and visiting this blog. I’ve been at it now for almost 4 years and those of you who have been following for awhile know just how much things have changed and grown over the years. It’s been a damn pleasure sharing my work and sartorial experiences with you. xx
In my teens I wrote on my wall; ‘Don’t dread, do’.
‘Dreading’, being something I did a lot while ‘Doing’ was something I left for another time. I’ve dreaded this moment more than anything in my life and now when it’s here I’m not sure what to say about it. Apart from saying that, this is me. Slasher Girl is everything I am. Everything else up to this point was practice. The ‘doing’, I hope, speaks for itself. I’d be thrilled if you will like it of course, but if you don’t that’s ok too – I’d still like to hear from you. Slasher Girl will be very opinionated and, I think, often divisive – just as I believe good fashion should be.
Lastly, I hope you find inspiration – as I have – in the words of our Slashers. These women are strong and independent with a tremendous drive and creativity. This is only the beginning and I cannot wait to share with you extraordinary brands and special items we have in store.
In ONE WEEK it will all be clear as to what exactly I’ve been working on for the past six months. SlasherGirl.com has been my entire being for a long time. I truly look forward sharing with you all and hearing each and every thought.
In the meantime, I thought it best to keep things as normal as possible on Capture Fashion. By normal, I mean a good old-fashioned swimwear post. Some things will never change. My love for a bomb, classic one-piece is one of those things. xx
Miami mornings have the most magical energy. I used to love staying up all night waiting for the sun to rise. These days I go to bed early to wake up with the sun. Either way, sunrise on the East Coast of Florida is just beautiful.
For Fall 2014, sunrise is a main vein of inspiration. I foresee a major love affair with the combination of warm and pastel colors. Speaking of fall, are any of your keeping up with #NYFW? Of course you are! I’ve been keeping up via Style.com and The Cut to get my fix. Instagram gives me the sads.
Back to the upcoming season, I am starting to indulge my growing obsession with baby pink. I’m crushing on it so hard. If I were in NY right now, it would be pink coat all day. A bikini is a fair trade, no?
It’s maxi madness on Capture Fashion this week. Specifically, maxis worn with flats. This is a look I can’t get away from in the “winter” months of Miami. It’s easy, weather appropriate and let’s be honest – super comfortable. I’ve been all about the comfort while busy working on the launch of /GIRL. 30 days!! #SlasherGirl @ShopSlasherGirl
I really like to bake sometimes. Recently, I made my first successful pie dough! My pies never come out this pretty, so I felt compelled to share. Recipe here. xx
