Mod

1Q1A7269Scalloped shift dress a la Nasty Gal, Tod’s boots, See Eyewear sunglasses.

Other than free-flowing pubes, I think every trend that started in the ’60s should and will remain in style forever. Micro-mini skirts and shifts, oversized shades, big blocks of black and white, and boots that cause you to hear Nancy Sinatra’s voice in your head…the right mod look is both quirky and sophisticated, and that’s a beautiful thing. And who doesn’t want to feel like the factory girl sometimes?1Q1A7270

Girls Will Be Boys

Menswear-inspired coats and shoes + feminine frocks + black & blue, the ultimate color combination of the season = an easy, yet unexpected and stylish look. And Sandro, my current go-to designer, has the equation all figured out.1Q1A5839(Please excuse my mean muggin’…) Here I am in a masculine Sandro coat with leather panels, a striped Sandro shift dress, and my Boutique 9 patent-leather tasseled loafers. The contrast between the boyish coat & shoes and the girly dress creates a look that works for day or night.1Q1A5866 - Version 3

1Q1A5856That’s not leather—I’m not sure what effect they’re using on the sleeve here, but it’s pretty awesome. That and the zipper detailing brings an updated edge to the classic shift dress, and essentially eliminates the need for accessories.1Q1A5847

This particular post/outfit actually speaks to the essay I posted previously. Although people are prone to suggest that fashion objectifies women and promotes gender stereotypes, real fashion (“couture,” if you will…even though you can’t without sounding pompous) constantly embraces androgyny.

SoWa Vintage Market

I’m going to see what’s up at the SoWa Vintage Market today. Food trucks, art and thrifty shopping are quite a savory combo. Here’s a throwback to my last visit, in 2012, wearing a loose-fitting polka dot dress with shoulder pads from LF Stores, Marc Jacobs combat boots, my Alexander Wang Marion Bag, vintage Eastpak sunglasses, oh—and purple hair.
