There’s the little black dress and then there’s your perfect little black dress. For Effie it’s a custom NOT by jenny lai pillow case dress that’s simply flattering in the front with a surprise opening in the back. She’s wearing it with a Givenchy birds of paradise scarf (on her head), Yves Saint Laurent platform pumps, and a Givenchy bag.
And this is the cross body Givenchy bag that I almost got last year to use as a camera bag during fashion week but decided for that it wasn’t big enough. Looking at it now though, I kind of wish I did! Since by now you know this girl loves fashion...here are a few of her other favorite things!
Food: Afternoon tea because it’s cute and delicious!
Drink: Can’t go wrong with water.
Book: Vogue, baby!
Recent song or album: No Doubt “Settle Down”.
Artist: Keith Haring.
NYC spots: coffee at Ground Support in Soho and walking around town, and sitting along the waterfront in Long Island City while the sun goes down.
LA spots: Brunch at Gjelina, followed by coffee at Intelligentsia — It’s kind of a tradition my best friend and I have when I’m in LA working with PNKYSWR.
NYC spot for creative inspiration: Something about riding the metro makes me write songs!
Vacation/getaway spot: I’m currently in love with London. I tend to get away from the city only to go to another city.
Indulgence: getting custom NOT by Jenny Lai pieces made on a whim.
Fashion designer: Rick Owens and Alber Elbaz.
Article of clothing: Rick Owens silk hooded jacket from SS ’10. I literally had to hunt it down.
Go-to cosmetic: YSL Rouge Voluptè No. 11. It matches my hair and lasts all day!
Fave thing about being in PNKYSWR: Seeing people sing and dance to our songs when we play shows!
Historical time period that you never experienced (and why): The future (not really historical, I know), because I’m all about looking ahead, and that means never hanging onto the past or dwelling on anything for too long. Time only ticks forward, and so should you!
I love this look that she’s wearing here. So much more interesting than a little black dress!
The statement pieces are the boots by Rick Owens and the sequined harness jacket by Comme des Garcons. She’s wearing them with an Out From Under cropped bustier and the angle skirt by Titania Inglis. And she’s kept the jewelry simple: just a PNKYSWR necklace!
Here is a better look at her PNKYSWR necklace: Effie’s own custom design made in collaboration with Tinkering Monkey.
This is my friend Effie who is one half of the bi-coastal digital doo wop duo PNKYSWR. (Dave Zee is her LA counterpart) Her playful look inspired me to create an animation. Here she is wearing a tee by Dark Harts, shorts by Rick Owens and boots by Ann Demeulemeester. This week you’ll be seeing a little more of her style as I’m mixing things up here a bit.
