Bright Prints and Hard Leather
Mar 13, 2013 - by Fashion Indie
There's something amazing about bright patterns mixed with rouge edges and hard leather.
Gap sweater, Wolford tights, Cartier watch.
This outfit was inspired by one of the most stylist people I know, Krystal Bick of TTT. She recently rocked the most fantastic bright yellow printed Stella McCartney skirt, and my jealousy of her trendiness sparked a shopping spree that ended with the purchase of this Dolce and Gabbana piece. While Krystal looks flawless, I personally can't rock yellow on yellow, so I opted for a more New York centric look that's a bit darker. My new gold Kurt Geiger flats, which I picked up over the weekend, added the perfect touch of shine, and MAC's Morange finished off the look.
I bought the Margiela coat on a whim, I walked into H&M the day of the sale, only to find one last coat, which just happened to be my size. I grabbed it, as if it was the last coat on earth, and ran toward checkout. I rarely wear it, it's stiff, and not comfortable to wear, but I love the way it looks. I wish I could destroy it, as it if was a new pair of Levi's, in order to soften the leather, but for now, I'll just have to give into the roughness. My father in law told me that the coat was ugly, which is my version of a stamp of approval. What do old people know anyways? He still thinks I get hair extensions, and I keep reminding him that I did that only once, 5 years ago, for my wedding!
I also recently discovered Kurt Geiger handbags, which are so stylist and so inexpensive. My new Deuce bag looks incredibly rich, the colors are perfect for the transition from Winter to Spring, and I've been looking to replace my weekend bag and have finally found the perfect solution.
Also today, I'm featured on EverythingButTheDress, along with an interview of what inspires my style. Obvi, I dress to impress! Mostly cuz I want to get either snapped by street style, or laid by my husband. It's the little things that make everyday count!
