My friend and I were out on the town the other night being young and just generally awesome so of course I pulled out my phone and was like, “Have you seen this girl on Instagram?” Which is actually, I feel, a step up from my usual, “Have you seen this baby on Instagram?” Growth, people.
Anyway, that girl is Kai Avent-deLeon, and she makes me question why I bother getting dressed every morning and presenting myself to other human beings because it’s just like, not really worth the effort. But then for some people it is, apparently? Here’s Kai wearing incredible wide-legged pants with mustard socks and oxblood loafers:
While hanging out with Celia Smith and Pop Africana’s Oroma Elewa, who once took this fitting room selfie:
Which is ALL I’VE EVER WANTED TO LOOK LIKE AND I’M DYING.
Anyway, Avent-deLeon runs Bed Stuy boutique Sincerely, Tommy and I bought a really cute sweater there the other week. Kai has amaaazing taste but prices are still really reasonable and most everything is made in Japan, w00t. Here’s the store interior, it’s gorgeous:
And be sure to check out their Instagram and ~very cool~ Tumblr.
