Another serendipitous coincidence (besides running into an old boyfriend while taking pictures of your outfits) - we both wore beloved black and white tops. The labels could not be more different, but the fashion utility is quite the same.
This is the opposite corner of Flower and 9th. We love the pile of oranges as a backdrop. (Never mind that it's part of a Robeks.)
I went with monochrome accents today - the scarf and shoes actually match up pretty well but are different patterns so as to not run afoul of Paloma's no matchy-matchy rule.
And, although not visible, I am wearing a short-sleeved vintage Balenciaga sweater rescued from a consignment shop. It has a loud anchor on it that nobody seems to get; covering up the anchor is one way around it. Of course, co-worker Jamie loved it, as she has a penchant for the couture.
Anyway, I just had to brag about it, even though my mom and my brother (hi, Drewdle!) are always telling me to stop telling everyone how cheap my clothes are. They insist that I am always answering the compliment, "I love your [insert clothing/accessory item]!" with, "Thanks, I got it for [insert some obscenely low amount of money] at [insert some store at which I should be mildly embarrassed to shop]!" (Example: "I love your top!" "Why thanks, I got it for $2.00 at Charlotte Russe!"). It's pretty good advice, since you certainly wouldn't respond the same way if your clothes cost an obscenely large amount of money. Can you imagine? "Thanks! I got it for $475 at Gucci!"
Anyway, I digress. Love this shirt, and am excited for endless possibilities with it. At least, for as long as it holds up. Damn, I should have bought three.
