One thing I love about vintage-inspired pieces as that they usually find a way to work in both Winter and Summer – you know, “transitional dressing”. This dress, in particular, felt equal parts ‘Mad Men’ and colourblocking-friendly when I spotted it hidden in Boden’s women’s clothing section (probably something to do with their huge promo of colourblocking knitwear). By happenstance, the dress arrived with a big dose of sunshine and another package featuring this unbelievable Shabana Khan necklace. Pink lip, neon shoes…colourblock sorted.
So, it’s a little more chartreuse than neon, but why not use any excuse possible to throw out an Arcade Fire song title? While I’m at it, I might as well self-indulge and channel my inner Coco Rocha (crazy pose goddess model queen) to swing my new self-designed shoes around.
See? Let’s go ahead and show you the whole ensemble…in technicolour! View Post
Because I am off to New York in just over two weeks, my mind has been keeping busy melding ideas in efforts to be a sartorially smart tourist*. I’m simply not the kind of woman to don a visor and a fanny pack (and hope that unless you’ve just time travelled from 1980, you aren’t either). I feel like – from the Shake Shack to the Top of The Rock – the look above is going to be my basic Manhattan uniform. Ease, colour, and a removable layer if the weather calls for it.
* Yes, I’m American. I love ‘playing tourist’.
