OUTFIT// DRESS UP DRESS DOWN

Not too dressy, not too casual, juuuuuuuusssssst right. That's the goal. 

Full look: 

What you see here is a dressy ALC button up shirt, worn with men's leather shorts, an Isabel Marant vest, Gianvito Rossi heels and YES a bolo! 

First the shirt: meant to be worn dressy (trousers, pencil skirt) on it's own the shirt is a little too serious and begs to be worn with personality or run the risk of being stiff. But it's beautifully made! 

Giving the shirt "personality" with this bolo. Why do bolos get such a bad wrap? I'm definitely advocating for the "step children" of the wardrobe: vests, bolos ...

SHOP BOLOS

The vest:  Isabel Marant giving you strong shoulder + Japanese kimono + futuristic vibes. 

SHOP ISABEL MARANT VESTS

Not really what you might reach for to wear with this shirt but the look needs energy and structure, no?

PERSONAL DARE:: 3 WAY PRINT MIX IN BLACK AND WHITE

Ever dare yourself to wear something "out there" because it's too boring to be safe? Even if it means you might make people dizzy just by looking at your outfit? Yeeaaahhh.... I did that.

What you're seeing: 3 separates. Slouchy check pants, a quasi-polka dot blouse, under a short sleeved sweatshirt.

I have two safety nets: #1 everything is black and white, hence easier to digest

#2 It's all anchored with a black jacket and black boots.

We'll see if I get more cheers or jeers on these mean streets! Kidding. Who cares.

One of these days, wear something that scares you (the good kind of scared)
