Fancy Pants

10.10.2012


Simply Vera Wang tee (similar look here), 
DIY bleached jeans c/o BDG (similar here), 
14th + Union booties (also worn here), 
Vintage necklace, 
Alexander Wang crossbody bag, 
Astralagus bracelets c/o Wanderluster.

Micol and I shot this look last weekend, before the recent cold front blew in and left us all freezing! On this particular day we went out for a late brunch at Extra Fancy, a pretty new bar/restaurant on Roebling that's quickly become one of our faves. There's nothing like glam jewelry to dress up an otherwise casual look, so I opted for these amazing bracelets from NY-based jewelry designer Wanderluster. If you think this arm candy is awesome, wait til you see their necklaces...

Also - can anyone tell what's different about me in this look? If you guessed my HAIR, you're correct! Micol made me straighten it, which is a rare occasion, but was kind of fun. Not only is my ombre that much more noticeable, but I think it also makes me look much more Asian (for those of you who didn't know, I'm 1/2 Vietnamese). So, which 'do do you prefer?

  10. Wow it is different seeing you with straight hair! It usually looks naturally wavy! I love it! And I agree... It does make you look a little more Asian. It's always fun to switch up the way you do your hair. It makes me feel like I've completely transformed myself!
    Love the pants and really love that rhinestone bracelet!
