leather on leather

 I played around with this leather-on-leather-(on-leather?) look on a sunny day...not the best idea I've ever had but I love the look so it'll be a good one to remember come the fall. This little gray vest is my new favorite (I've already been called-out for wearing it so often) and I layered it over another gray leather jacket. I love the two tone effect it created. The overall look is tough-girl with the zippered waxy jeans, ankle booties, and graphic T-shirt.

toy soldier

Between the primary colors and the structured nature of the jacket it was inevitable that I would end up marching at some point. I felt like the Nutcracker Prince, minus ballet shoes and sub animal print wedges, and it just so happened that my nail polish matched perfectly. The red Current/Elliott jeans were a recent score at Barney's AND on sale. Oh the sweet satisfaction!!

How high is your top-knot?

This Y-3 sweater with kimono-like sleeves always steals the show. I love how the Japanese designer uses simplistic color schemes that leave the focus on the cut of the garment, check out the futuristic style on the website here. Paired with a top-knot the overall look definitely gave off an Asian vibe. What do you think?
