Unexpected Treasures

1.19.2013


Ronen Chen London top (sample), F21 blouse with laser cut collar (similar here), 
Free People vegan leather jeans (similar here), Vintage crossbody bag, H and M beanie, 
Sam Edelman Lulu boots (previously seen here).


Micol and I walked past this mural on Bedford the other day while running errands in the neighborhood, and both were stopped in our tracks. As you know, we're always on the search for new, fun backdrops for our shoots, and this one was screaming our name. The perfect setting for my otherwise colorless look.

As for my look, I'm obsessed right now with this new button-up blouse that I just bought at none other than Forever 21. Not sure if you can tell, but the collar is laser cut leather... such a subtle, fun detail. And as you can imagine, it was such a steal! As much as I try to avoid shopping at Forever 21 too much, I have to admit--if you have the patience to sort through the insanity of their stores, they often have buried treasures like this sucker just waiting for you within.

  7. Great photos!! Love how your minimal(and somewhat androgynous) outfit is offset by a feminine yet edgy collar. Great look!
