OUTFIT//OPPOSITES ATTRACT

Looking at this, you might say "where are the opposites - other than black and bone"? WELP... read on! 

What you're looking at is a Margiela knit over Mackage leather leggings, worn with OOOOLLDDD OG Isabel Marant tassel boots and a collarless Isabel moto jacket. 

Let's talk about opposites - in this case, it was about softness with hard. The knit sweater is super soft in all senses of the word. Loose fitting, delicately made, it's thin and neutral etc. 

SHOP MARGIELA KNITS

SHOP OTHER GREAT KNITS

Paired with leather leggings - that are psychologically "fierce" they're not easy to wear, they're tough, but the right kind of tough. 

SHOP HIGH-END LEATHER LEGGINGS 

LEATHER LEGGINGS UNDER $200 AND SOME UNDER $100

The boots although black are super bohemian with fringe and tassels. They're scrunchy NOT structured and still they have that fierce triangle heel and chain in the front. 

Are you smelling what I'm selling? My thinking is there's an overall balance happening that goes beyond color. 

SHOP ISABEL MARANT BOOTS

INSPO//FALL AND WINTER PASTELS + NEUTRALS

Who's gonna' do it? Who is going to resist the urge to wear all black or grey this fall/winter and kick everyone's ass by carrying pastels, taupes and muted tones into the season? Ahhhhhh... challenge is on. 

Here's a collection of images to get your brain thinking about it! 

This last pic is proof that print on print can also survive the seasonal change! Any of you up for the challenge?  

Side note: I haven't looked it up yet, but whoever styled Katy Perry in that grey look with the slides?!? Yes, to you! Johnny Wujek was that you?

MARBLED DESERT PRINT MIX

Looking at these elements, I say, surely this it TOO much. But is it really?

Awwwweeee shucks! Makin' it work!

Can we please talk about this jacket? Lawdamercy, when I laid eyes on this thing at a sample sale, my eyes welled up with tears of joy and potential. Baby, this thing is all kinds of hyphenated words that I love:  over-sized, moto-ish, tie-dyed, 80's-esque. 

What you're seeing here is: dress under top. 

All colors in this desert, sand-stone family, just mixing together like nobody's business.

PS: went to shoot the lay down for this outfit,  Mr. @arrowtheheeler had other ideas. 

What say you -into the mix?
