A post-Christmas purchase—meaning a post-Christmas gift to myself. Jacket from anthropologie—I love the bold shapes, the autumn colors and the velvet lines. My favorite aspect is the neckline—it feels very 60’s the way the collar comes up and snaps across the side of the neck. It’s kind of caught between seasons right now, but I’m in love with it.
Inspiration! I love the sixties feel to her two looks. Mini skirts are without a doubt my biggest weakness—especially considering I’m only 5’0” tall. Mini-skirts with black tights and a black heel (whether it be tall or subtle) always give the appearance of a longer leg. I also like the use of texture—how plaid, while casual, can evoke a polished chicness given the appropriate pairing of shoes and accessories. When I think of metallics on the other hand, I immediately start planning a night on the town—though, with a simpler jacket or grandfather sweater, the look can be dressed down. The sixties is hands down my favorite decade of fashion because the looks are so transitory—the sexiness is a little more subtle and playful and the geometric patterns are often bold and interesting without being overt. At the end of the day though, it’s all in how you wear it.
I’m OBSESSED with these Pretty Ballerinas! Glitzy leopard-print Marilyn-style flats, which complement my $5 pashmina nicely. I love adding drops of color and flashes of metallic to add contrast to an all-black ensemble.
Really cool video about the diverse fashion in Williamsburg and how it reflects creativity! I love Brooklyn, I love Williamsburg. Even though my own style is fairly conservative, it’s so interesting to observe and be influenced and gain inspiration. I’m so happy to be part of it!
