THE NEW BASICS

Happy New Year! I've been MIA, yes, because guess what? I have  a day job, a hectic one. The end of 2015 had me prepping for a 9 episode video series and shooting an editorial photo shoot. More on that later. 

You know what happened the ENTIRE time I was shooting? I was wearing the same thing (versions of the same thing) every.single.day.every.day.no.lie.

Here's what it was! 

TOPS

Long sleeve, super body con top. Luxe fabric, killer on. Way better than these pics. My choice ATM. Got it in oatmeal and black. 

On an off day, I would switch out the long sleeve for this attractive halter style knit. Ultra luxe, also from ATM

SHOP THE TOPS! 

 

PANTS

Wore these tops with bad ass jeans in two options: edgy and sexy. My pics, R13 for edgy and Frame denim for sexy. 

REALLY AND TRULY - the gray Frame denim jeans with frayed edges (styled terribly above) are the hottest jeans I own. The hem is cut to make it look like your legs go on for days! 

What can we say about R13, other than the pants above got me "cool points" with the various stylists on my productions. Dunzo. 

SHOP THE JEANS

Shoe Game 

Listen man, when in production I wear sneakers. So it was the Nike Lunerlite DMB jump offs the whole time. On days with "meetings" I flew in the Gianvitto Rossi undeniable mule! 

SHOP THE SHOES, BOO!

THE JACKETS 

Toggled back and forth between an Isabel Marant collarless jacket and an old Gryphon camo bomber jacket. Here's the thing - I think collarless, epaulet-less leather jackets are fresher than their collared, epaulet-ed friends. Here's the jacket I wore in black and this SIIIIICCCCCK cream version. Sheesh!  Check out how I wore the Isabel jacket in a previous post- here!

Check out two looks I've worn with this camo bomber, before you decide it's too much print: Here and Here! 

SHOP THE JACKETS!

Sadly, the Isabel Marant jacket I wear is not avail and neither is this Gryphon bomber.  Here are some other great options. 



SNEAKER GAME// TRIPLE BLACK ACTION

Cmmoooooonnnnnn SON! Triple black. Done. Get into it. I'm wearing the Lunarlite kicks right now! 

SHOP THESE AND MORE STYLES, NOW!

OUTFIT// NORMCORE REVISED

Remember when everyone was talking about "normcore"? Meaning it was trendy to wear non-trendy things and to take it to the extra normal extreme? I think the point was to look like you were a middle-aged white man living in Beaverton, Oregon. (Not racist) 

That moment missed me for sure. Who's really gonna wear a fleece vest, cargo shorts and Skechers to make a statement? Anyhow. This is about as normcore as I'm ever gonna' get.

I call this look - everything is wrong, so it's gotta' be right! 

What you see here are super baggy boyfriend jeans worn with a super tight basic long-sleeve top and BOOTLEG Nikes! Awwwwwwe shit. 

Let's address the elephant in the room (or outfit) These kicks are straight outta' Shanghai China, obviously bootlegged, because this shoe has never existed in the history of Nike sneakers. They were gifted to me because apparently, only I have the "gall" to wear such things. 

Check out the janky construction and stitching, but YES these are amazing! 

Your eyes don't deceive you - those stars in the swoosh! 

For the record (Nike, if you're listening) these were a gift. Don't judge me please. Also, they must be worn. 

SHOP OUTLANDISH NIKES

These are not bootleg-but they are wild!

Now for the rest of the so wrong - it's gotta' be right look. An ill-fitting jean, anyone? 

Already a "boyfriend" style, but slung super low on the hips, to make it look more "skater-y" is that a thing? These jeans are actually fantastic! By RTA Denim - with the right kind of distressed details. 

SHOP GREY BOYFRIEND JEANS

And finally - pairing it with a super tight top (only to be worn on the days my tummy is behaving) 

Is it wrinkled? Yes. Super wrong, right? 

SHOP LONG SLEEVE TOPS

So long kids! 

What do you make of this? Leave your thoughts in the comments!
