“La-Di-Da”

November 12, 2010




(Blazer – Vintage Liz Claiborne, Shirt and Pants – Thrifted, Shoes – Charles David, Bag – Blondie London, Necklace – Oh Yeah? Make Me!)

I guess this week is all about interesting combinations, yesterday was colorblocking and today is mixing plaids and stripes.

Amidst all my packing for the move, I put on Annie Hall and was ridiculously inspired by her 70’s-quirky-menswear creations. With this in mind, I pulled out my vintage checker-plaid pants and thought, “What would Annie wear?”, and it seemed like destiny when I noticed that my striped silk shirt was a perfect match in colors.. though it was stripes.. I thought…why not?

Once the mix was paired, I just added a bunch of 70’s-inspired accessories. I hope Annie would be proud!

A Hair Moment: Inspired by my menswear look, I wanted to keep things simple and sophisticated so I created a sleek-n-chic bun.

    I hope you don’t mind but I had such a physical reaction to this ensemble that I must post these pics. I will link back to you of course. Let me know if you want me to take it down…(please don’t though, because I will be sad:)
