Amanda Garrigus in Men's Jacket and Gold oxfords

Paris, if it seems as though I’m always looking for reasons to talk about it, well, you’d be right. And here again, I have a very good one! The Paris Menswear shows are underway in the City of Light. Yippee! And so, in honor of the testosterone-heavy occasion, I’m having a Ruby Rose by way of Madeline menswear moment. This jacket was custom made in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania for my father many moons ago (in the 1960s to be precise). It’s the top half of a rather spiffy blue pinstriped tropical wool suit and I love it. The oversized silhouette lends just the right amount of laissez-faire to make it oh-so-casually cool, and a tiny mini skirt and shiny oxford shoe provide the necessary girly touches. Now I’m off to scroll through loads of images of handsome men in stellar designer clothes. All in a day’s work!

With love,
