Ralph Lauren Rugby Jacket, Mike & Chris Leather Jacket, AKA New York Blouse, Vintage Levi's Shorts, DKNY Hosiery (gifted), YSL Rings, Miu Miu Stampa Cocco Lux Purse and Christian Louboutin Daf Booty.
The past weekend's outfits basically revolved around the above look. When the temperature rose, I opted for a denim short and nylon combination. The shorts were a recent vintage find at Tiger Blanket Records, a new vintage shop that opened in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
The nylons were sent over by kind people that represent DKNY (thank you). At first, they were extremely difficult to put on. However, once I did manage to get them around my muscular thighs, they fit! Additionally, the nylons held my legs in well, quite possibly the most flattering nylons in my wardrobe! Unfortunately, a run developed after the first wear, something I find most disappointing. However, I am willing to give DKNY Hosiery another chance because of the luxurious look and feel.
One of the greatest fashion loses for me was Mike & Chris. Their knitwear and leathers were some of my favorite pieces. I'd be hard-pressed to part with what I have, such as the above leather jacket because it's that amazing. Hopefully, as the economy improves, I'll see the return of some of my beloved brands.
