The seriously (I suspect) over-hyped Punk Exhibit opens for Members Preview today at the MET and on Thursday for everyone else. It’s the sort of thing that got me all excited when I first heard about it – months and months and months ago – but now I’m kind of dreading it because I don’t know how it can possibly live up to the hype. Which is all kind of irrelevant at the moment for me because I’m out of town so can’t make it up there yet anyways. In the meantime here is a recent transplant from LA (on the left) who looks like she could be a model for Punk Barbie if there was such a thing.
I saw Margo on the street and we were both on our way to Milk Studios. Both her super high platform shoes and big hair add to her “larger than life” style. Mostly I’m not a fan of 100% sheer skirts but it works with her overall look (let’s call her the exception to the rule) and I love how her tights match her bunny earred cell phone cover!
I almost never take photos on Broadway. In fact I tend to avoid Broadway at all costs so as not to be trampled on by a herd of tourists. But sometimes it’s unavoidable. And at one of these times I encountered Victor and his fabulous YSL bag which j’adore. Also love the kimono as coat. I figured the ensemble was worth having to deal with the busy background instead of the traditional “oh look this person is in NYC and no one else exists!” that is the trend of streetstyle photographers.
I love dresses that you can simply thrown on and go out in. This dress is a perfect example of that. It has a loose cut but the asymmetrical seams keeps it from being boring. And her Jeffrey Campbell boots are beloved by city girls everywhere.
I know this is wildly, wickedly over-exposed. But I like it. It makes it all about the dress. This is a beautiful black metallic jacquard sleeveless dress from Tibi and I’m debating wearing it to a friend’s wedding in the city next week…though probably not with the boots -they’ll debut at NYFW!
