Today's outfit is my first from New York! Here I am on a rooftop in Harlem, doing my thing...you know how I roll. This post and next week's are about transitional summer dressing, i.e. I know it's 100 degrees outside, but AC kills me! Having a cardi on hand is just like, so necessary. Last week I blogged about being in love with my new platform House of Holland Supergas and the trend continues here, as you can see I'm all up on my my vintage Bass Vibrams. What can I say, except shorties got big dreams, too! I've been thinking about heavily distressed wide-legged denim ever since seeing the first pic included in my inspiration board below (after the jump), like, five months ago. Now, I feel like I've seen the look everywhere, from Vogue's Social Shopper to Stop It Right Now. They're a great summer staple because they provide mondo ventilation. Buy them a few sizes up and wear 'em loose and cuffed.
The only shiny new thing in this post is my pair o' sunnies, some super-hot blue-tinted Ray-Bans I bought (at more than 50% off!) instead of eating. They've not been the world's biggest success (They got poo-pooed at work, garnering comparisons to Will Smith circa The Fresh Prince and The Beatles - but those are both good references, people!), but I am totally in love with their shape. Big ups to mi amiga Kelly Kollar for snapping these photos and offering up the unsolicited yet valuable fashion advice, "Are those jeans really a trend right now?" and, "I can't tell if your hair is supposed to look like that." Check out my inspiration board below...
