Monday morning walking to work I saw Gemma Ward sitting on the stoop on Broadway or 6th ave, smoking, blackberry, stressed out, not enough sleep, disheveled, sunken, I was drawn to her look, it had a kind of of beauty to it that I don’t know how to name yet…

ugh, okay….. I just want dark circles to come back in fashion….

    Your outfits are perfection, Coco. I never get tired of visiting your blog. I think is the most inspiring blog at the moment!
    If dark circles come back I’ll be lucky… I always have.

    Haha if only, I never get enough sleep and so the eyes get the backlash. In want/need/love with your sheer top and heels.

    I wish dark circles would come back too. I then wouldn’t have to cover up mine.

    dark circles really should be “in”. then i don’t need to use so much concealer anymore lol
    I’m really digging that studded denim jacket your wearing. it looks great on you! Wow, you saw gemma ward? how i wish i could live in the city that never sleeps as well 🙂

    your shoes are the business.

    A dark circle revival would be brilliant. I wouldn’t even have to try

    If that happens, I’ll be so happy. Then I won’t have to worry about my eyeliner smudges.

    Ah yes, dark circles, my enemies! I hate covering them up before going to work everyday. I tried to get a full hours of sleep but I have them nontheless. I’ll be so happy if they become a chic thing to have! xxoxoxoxo

    Perfect outfit as always.

    I totally understand where you are coming from with the idea of the disheveled, stressed out, girl who is mysteriously sexy in her mess.
    I don’t however think it is something to be envied ( as most of the time these same people are abusing drugs and thus look the way they do). The real beauty is in the girls who are balanced and put together but mysteriously disheveled none the less, girls who can embody both without causing harm to themselves.

    *** : yes I agree, but it was kind of nice to see and to know that we all kind of have bad days too.. and dark circles… but what you said is absolutely true!

    simply me : hahaha I know, when I first saw the picture I was sooooooo upset haha.. I was so tempted to photoshop it but I didnt and now Im cracking up every time I see that picture lol it kind of reminds me that I really really need 8 hours of sleep 🙂

    Yes, dark circles should come into fashion so we don’t have to waste so much time trying to get rid of it. But then again that’s like saying let’s bring exhaustion into trend, eh. Let’s be healthy, as amazing you look ‘sulken’ like that. Love the sheer with the denim <3

    ugh, I LOVE the disheveled look. I used to look like that 24/7, unfortunately it wasn’t natural. It was due to substances….but,still. 😡

    I want to meet up with you in New York one day. I would love, love, love to meet you!!!!!! xo

    Love this look. I’m really into the scruffy 90s grunge look. Ive even started to take up smoking again to increase my hagged look. You look great and Gemma Ward is one of my fave models. x
