{ slick city }

7th April, 2011





{ leopard-lined umbrella from nordstrom rack, house of harlow sunnies (originally in THIS POST), vintage anne klein earrings, vintage trench (i recently replaced its originally too-matchy mustard buttons, which made a world of difference), banana republic heritage vest (recently seen HERE and HERE), vintage chanel belt (i bought it on my last trip to austin, and introduced in THIS POST), juicy couture cuff (last seen HERE), vintage 50’s skirt (i discovered in on this day in las vegas), hue socks, stuart weitzman boots (also seen HERE) }

while i’ve been dreaming about sandals and swimsuits, the weather has actually stayed pretty nasty in new york (it’s slowly warming up slightly, but those famed april showers are in full effect!). good thing there’s costumery for all occasions! to check out more of my rain day duds, click HERE and HERE.

    LOVE love love. Brilliance is behind your every ensemble…but this is…BEYOND!!! Prominent details – colors, textures, lengths, widths – play with each other, and enhance their greatest assets. Adore your styling and eye…and the skirt – to die for. Bravo!!!

    Oh this is my kind of outfit. Love the socks and boots with that length skirt. I always think it's going to be cold when it's raining but more often than not it's quite mild and I'm sweating in too many layers.
    Hope you get some nicer weather soon and the reality of those swimsuits isn't too far away.

So far I only have one question on there & I'm a bit worried that I'll have to ask all the questions myself! Would be great if you or some of your readers submitted a question (by next Tues Australian time). .

    it is indeed entirely too cold and wet and unpleasant, but you combat the dreariness perfectly. i really like your layered look, structured well with the fitted belt to provide some added shape for your figure. also love the earrings, but cannot get a real good glimpse of them!
