- THIS IS WHAT I LOVE! Today I went vintage shopping in Brooklyn, for my webshop ELEGANTLY WAISTED, and I found quite a few awesome pieces:
Full cream long pleated skirt (in the background), a yellow silk and cotton dress-with white croquet, a bright printed flower pants-skirt, a short metallic skirt, a nude and silver lace skirt, a full tutu inspired silk and lace skirt and a really fun beaded bag. Also picked up a few jewelry bits and a pair of cool sunnies. This will be available online very soon!
AROUND AND AROUND
Today we went to a few shops down in Soho, tried on a sweater at A Wang, stripy and cute, but it was not right. I think it was one of those days…where nothing fits. And Topshop is for kids.
Ended up with a pair of skinny capri jeans from Rag & Bone-everybody need a perfect pair of really fitted STRETHY jeans, and I finally found mine.
Proenza Schouler sure knows how to dress the cool girls. The perfect summerchic outfit – consist of: The batik dress, the big necklace and the ladylike pumps. Then you can mix the necklace with a simple tee, the pumps with your favorite shorts and the dress can be worn with a pair of nude flats and a olive green trench from HELMUT LANG (that I also have my eyes on) for chic daytime cool.
“We wanted it to be a little more polished,” Jack McCollough said backstage, before Lazaro Hernandez jumped in: “So we took all these feminine codes—the embroideries, the flowers—and mixed them up in our own way. We wanted to do something without any obvious references.”
