A fur vest over a short sleeved top is one fashion forward way to deal with this unusually cool spring. Love the MiuMiu heels and the Jill Stuart bag. But love even more that the amazing metallic green color of the bag is actually fabric paint that Olivia used to turn a blah beige bag into an accessory that really pops!
I usually HATE mixing denims…but every rule must have an exception! Actually these pants are pretty insane: they’re like shorts with leather leggings –you definitely need to be a model or model height to even begin to get away with them…and with sneakers not heels as well! What do you think of this look?
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.
It’s tricky to wear shorts in the city and not seem like the ultimate tourist. She makes it work with an aztec print short paired with an orange kimono sleeve top over a tee and neutral wedges. Not a huge fan of the fannypack but at least it has a nice aesthetic going for it!
Meron and B. Hawk were with me at Opening Ceremony and both have a great city vibe in all black looks with boots that pop. Look and learn, people.
There’s been a bit of talk recently about the “death of streetstyle” that in my opinion is beyond stupid. Street style isn’t a trend. It’s simply looking at how everyday people dress well. (the last word in that sentence is important) Xaeira (pronounced “Sahara”) pictured here reminds me of that acronym KISS – as in keep it simple, stupid. She’s just wearing a white tank and leggings. But it’s the shoes and the headscarf that sets the look apart.
I normally avoid the Highline park on the weekend because it’s so crowded with tourists it makes it impossible to walk. But it was so beautiful this past weekend I couldn’t help but venture onto it. And I’m glad I did because I saw Kate who was wearing a nice mix of girlie (white cotton blouse, braids) and cool (oxblood boots, black leather jacket) and was a standout in a sea of jeans.
