Sailor Stripes

10.08.2012


DKNY thrifted blazer (similar here), 
H and M striped top, 
Joe Fresh zip-up jeans, 
ASOS platform heels (last seen here), 
Mango studded shoulder bag
DIY charm necklace.

Remember when Lauren confessed to loving all things RED this season? Well, as you can see, she wasn't lying and I may actually need to stage an intervention if it gets out of control. But I'm totally on board with this look, where she paired a new blazer with a striped top and a studded, structured bag. It's totally nautical, with a little bit of hard rock thrown in. I think it works.

We shot this look in front of a new coffee shop that's being built on Havemeyer, conveniently equidistant from our two apartments. We spoke with the owner, who is also from our OLD stomping grounds in the East Village (millions of people in this city and it's still so small), and he promised us that it would be complete in a few months time. Will this become our new local haunt? Guess you'll have to wait and see...

xx, M
