reminiscing past winter ensembles

Ambig sweater Ambig jacket Kasil jeans Allsaints boots Rayban sunnies Ambig beanie

 As the winter chill sneaks upon us, I thought what better way to aid my readers into warm decision making than reminiscing in past winter ensembles? Sit back, get comfortable and enjoy this throwback ride of the day. *cracks open the scrapbook and blows off dust* 

Displayed overhead, "The ambiguous" takes heed of the oncoming season by layering knit variables. Body warmth contained via olive sweater and cargo jacket courtesy of Ambig. Overly popular and commercialized color BURGUNDY eats up the attention by taking form in a beanie making my ears snuggly little bastards. Finalizing the look, I included a classic pair of jeans and my allsaints boots which since then, I have successfully overkilled. whatever though.

 The initial reaction to this rare gem is that it looks absolutely nothing like myself. Well kiddos, no argument there, since the ripe age of 18 when this shot was taken I have grown a beard, dyed my hair, and time changed my face...or something. The outfit posed to be one of my favorites though. A circle scarf accompanied by a bowtie??? cue the shock and awe! (not to be confused with chaka khan). I continued to play around by adding a grey military jacket and a non-lit cigarette. I was so cool. regardless, the outfit is an ideal choice to endure such winds the season provokes.

 "Got my doc martens on but don't call me doc!"... "big boots versus big puddles". I really hope a Doc Marten rep is reading these right now. From sock stuffing, to scarf wrapping and a male arm party (so inappropriate) this outfit was a swell decision for the holidays. Warm was my middle name people. And as for the colors I think I struck a high note by successfully pairing black and brown together, apparently some sort of big no-no that I don't care-care.

Trudging through the back hills of my old home photographing this, I probably looked insane. Plaid toggle cardigan sticking out against the gold foliage like a sore thumb...but I wouldn't have it any other way! Shoes matching my beanie ever so apparent, and a merse on one side...I'm ready for the north!  


now men, raid those closets and style some chit.

  9. Oh the inspiration your blog gives me for upcoming outfits.... The snow has already hit and I'm in a rush to find warm, comfortable outfits without sacrificing style (e.i. going out in sweat pants and your dads old sweater). Thank you, and lovely ensembles!

  18. I love how write your blog! When I read it, it feels like you're just talking to me in person, haha! I've read a couple of male bloggers' posts and I felt like they were trying too hard that what they were saying didn't come off as natural :( Great job on a throwback post though! :D I always love seeing time capsule posts from bloggers :)

  19. I think the best thing about these looks is that even though they were from years ago if you were to wear them again it'd still look very hip ;) although perhaps not totally age apros considering you've matured a bit :P. I love these looks today and I'll probably love them a year or two from now! Kudos Galla, you have timeless and effortless fashion styling, IMO the most difficult thing in this industry. *golf claps*
