Hey Shorty

6.30.2014


Thrifted striped tank (via Buffalo Exchange), Aqua lace shorts (similar here), Barney's Originals leather jacket, Vintage fringe crossbody bag (similar here), Guess Fallon cateye sunglasses (also seen here), Matte necklace from Crayon Singapore (last seen here), Kenneth Cole wedge sandals (similar here). Shot by Isaac Lacey.



If ever in a fashion bind, I always gravitate towards tried-and-true color combos, and black and white is about as standard as it gets. And although I stuck with a simple color palette in the above look, I tried to add some flair through playful accessories and intricate details. I love the way the fringe of the bag plays off of the delicate lace lining of these shorts, while the striped shirt and leather jacket keep things from feeling too girly. Once I added a pair of cateye frames (my favorite sunglass shape lately) and a bright red lip, I loved the retro but modern feel that the outfit invoked.

Anyway, enough ranting about clothes... hope everyone had a great weekend! I'm driving back from Montauk this morning and can't wait to share my experience/pics on the blog soon.

  4. The textures and details of this outfit are stunning. The edgy leather is perfectly balanced by the soft lace while the fringe is a modern accent to the overall ensemble.
