"What should I wear tomorrow?"

I think that every night.  Sometimes it’s a really obvious choice, and sometimes you just have to copy the first thing you see.

Stealing style

My friend Genie—whose full name is Eugenia, which I love—wears these harem pants and I blatantly copied her look.  Seriously, I asked her where she got them and just went out and got the same pair.  She doesn’t seem to mind.  I love the shape—they kind of make you look twice, like wait what are those?

Pants: Eileen Fisher, from lordandtaylor.com; Sweater: F21; Shoes: Christian Siriano for Payless; Earrings: thrifted; Sunglasses: Hot Topic.

A fine line between Audrey Hepburn and a caterer

I couldn’t figure out what to wear, and I remembered this ad for White House/Black Market, where they were pushing white shirts—“the iconic starlet shirt, the iconic artist shirt” etc.—so I went with that.  But without the scarf I looked like a caterer.

And Oh my gosh, how bout those huge doors?  They make me look miniature.  We found them behind Hearst.  No idea what the story is.

Shirt: Banana, from the Excelsior Goodwill; Pants: Express; Loafers: Bass outlet in Lake of the Ozarks; Scarf: vintage Pucci! from a thrift store; Bracelets: Wet Seal; Earrings: Claire’s; Sunglasses: Hot Topic.

Mixing

So happy with this pattern mix!  I like this much better than when I wear a plain navy jacket.  But it was kind of cute with black last time I wore it.
