TOO DAMN | EXPENSIVE

August 11, 2016

DSC03608

I’ve said this before, but one of the best things about blogging is discovering new brands from all over the world. I recently came across a newly created Scandinavian line, Too Damn Expensive, and fell in love with every single piece in their collection. Talk about such unique and tailored pieces that just flow so beautifully. It’s like art in movement. Everything is black, minimal, and deconstructed with various hemlines (totally my cup of tea). If I could, I would’ve taken the entire collection, but I limited myself to two pieces and have been wearing them nonstop ever since.

The first piece that stole my heart was this gorgeous, fitted jacket. I love the different hemlines and the sleek and luxurious feel. I would definitely wear this with cut-offs as I did here, but could also wear them with skinny jeans, over a jumpsuit or palazzo pants, or a dress…the possibilities are endless.

The other piece I chose was a sleeveless, wrap vest. You know I am a huge fan of multifunctional pieces and this silk top is no exception. This top can be worn knotted (as a wrap top) or open (as a vest) and both looks make such major statements. The long side ties make for the perfect statement belt and adds so much dimension to the outfit. If there is an asymmetrical hem I’m typically sold just because it makes for a more interesting outfit.

This jacket and top and every other piece from Too Damn Expensive are tailored to let your creativity flow. You can wear anything from this collection multiple ways and transform the fabrics to your unique style. And don’t let the name fool you, the collection is not Too Damn Expensive it’s just Too Damn AMAZING!

You look STUNNING, Christine! Ugh, I don’t know how you do it! Always killing it every time. Love this top so much — it looks really unique and goes well with those denim jeans and your nude heels. What a fun summer to fall transitionary look 🙂 xo, sharon

Hi Diana! Silk is tricky to wear just because you don’t have to always have to dry clean it, but the vest is actually machine washable so that’s extra bonus points!

Thank you Dana! Yes, I am a major fan of varying hemlines and flow (if you couldn’t tell hehe), because the outfit just speaks for itself at that point. I truly am a fan of this brand and want everything from here!

Thank you Anaivilo. The name is so rad, but it is a little misleading because their brand isn’t that expensive and I don’t want people to think that it is and not even take a look. =) They have such amazing pieces and I can’t rave enough about them!

When I saw this post on your IG I thought it would be about the brands CL shoes, Chanel bag 🙂
I am going to check it out for sure. Catchy name! Love all the combinations, boots and of course the bag are my favourite. You look so elegant and sexy at the same time.

Thank you Aurela. Haha, yes the shoes and bag are also #toodamnexpensive, but worth the investment (have you seen how many times I wear them?!). I think this brand name is misleading because it isn’t that pricey, but just #toodamnamazing!
