30 Comes in Black and White

3.14.2012


Black H & M blazer
Black Etam double-breasted vest (we dig this long version too)
Off-white pants from See You Soon (a super cute boutique in Paris)
Forever21 white tee (cut off at the sleeves)
Vintage woven leather clutch
Vintage beaded necklace (doubled up and worn as headpiece)

Turning thirty for most women is a big deal and generally we feel one of two ways about it: either we dread it and see it as a mark of old age, or we embrace it and see it as a mark of an exciting new decade. I fell into the latter group, as evidenced by the fact that I celebrated it for a good week and half culminating in an outrageous, black and white themed party at my apartment. I wore purple. Obviously.

But Lauren came dressed in probably one of my favorite looks to date. Of course she turned a necklace into an interesting headpiece. Of course she paired baggy white pajama pants with a tailored black tuxedo vest. Of course she broke the rules and brought a red clutch. But...she also came with a psychedelic birthday cake so.... she's obviously forgiven.
