Blackout

4.13.2012



Rick Owens gilet with leather collar detail, 
Mossimo sheer sleeveless tunic (similar look here), 
Forever21 silk tribal print shorts, 
Prada handbag (similar style here), 
Dolce Vita lace-up booties, 
Vintage bangles and cuff.


When Lauren came back from Paris Fashion Week in March she also brought back this exquisite Rick Owens gilet that I have been dreaming about ever since, while she has patiently been waiting to wear it. We had a brief warm weather hiatus but spring is back with a vengeance in NYC and, despite the fact that everyone turned to pastels and prints to celebrate, Lauren went in a darker direction and immediately threw the gilet on to complete her black-on-black ensemble. Luckily, this is New York, so no one bats an eye if you wear all black when it's 70 degrees out. 

That Lauren has finally had a chance to rock this look is especially important to me. Why? Because I need her to wear it at least once before I'm able to liberate it from her closet and run home with it, clutched in my greedy little hands.

  2. haha good luck on your THIEVERY. 70 degrees? God, hate you all, it's like in the 50s in Chicago. But anyways, I like the peek of tribal print under there!

  18. Haha, I love it. When you first said it was Rick O. I was overcome with jealousy but also thinking 'well, I would happily be best friends with a girl who rocks that in her wardrobe' :) Great pictures too!
