Double-Breasted Velvet

Velvet_double_breasted_4
          Mockneck (also similar here) / Similar Jacket (also here) / Overalls¬†(Similar here) / Similar Slides   I LOVE VELVET! Especially vintage velvet. Remember our posts here and here? As mentioned on our instagram, we've been trying to purchase and incorporate much more vintage and secondhand items in our looks in order to support longer life cycles for our garments. I borrowed this blazer from our mom, and by borrowed, I mean permanently ūüėč. I most likely rolled my eyes ūüôĄ when she got it years ago, but in my defense, what thirteen year old would truly understand the fabulosity that is this purple velvet double-breasted blazer?! It's not the most functional pieces of outerwear as the buttons take FOREVER to...

Fall Florals

DARK-PRINT-SKIRT-1
      Jacket / Sunnies / Shirt / Skirt (Old Reformation)- Similar here and here / Sneaks   There are so many things about this look that I love. First of all, the skirt and tee are both Reformation, which we try and buy whenever we have spare shekels. As our favorite sustainable and socially conscious brand, we do our best to splurge on a few new special pieces whenever possible. Fortunately, their tees are actually incredibly affordable and this skirt was on sale! Second, the skirt print is perfect to dress up or down and we've done both! Following the theme of sustainability, we've been on the hunt for a perfect oversized (pre-loved) denim jacket since I borrowed one from...

A Classic Look

Reformation_J_Brand_Karen_Walker_5
          Theres something refreshing in wearing a very simple look. It takes less effort and always looks classic and sophisticated without trying too hard. I had originally layered this top over a white tee, and played around with a maxi skirt among other combos, but this basic pairing ended up feeling right. This bag is an amazing hand me down from our Momager, but any mini top handle bag would do the trick (see one of my favorites below). Pairing crop flare jeans with a low block heel is an easy way to elevate your denim and this specific pair is on sale and super affordable right now.   Reformation / J Brand (Similar here and here) / Michael...

Pride 2017 Look

        Though this casual look is in no way exclusive to the one day a year of the NYC Pride Parade, or the month out of the year that celebrates Pride, I was especially thrilled¬†to wear it at Washington Sq. Park last weekend. Besides the fact that¬†proceeds from this shirt benefit the HRC, it is also soft as butter and my new favorite thing to wear with jeans. For those who don't like grey, it is also available in an ivory ground (with and without sleeves). Sunnies- Crap Eyewear / Shoes (old)- Similar Here / Tee- Everlane / Jeans- Madewell / Bag- Cult Gaia...

Babes Unite

BabesUnite_PP_Blazer_3
          With the escalating political and cultural tension in this country, there is no shortage of amazing graphic tees. However, I think it is safe to say¬†Denim brand AMO¬†made my favorite one so far! There are so many things I love about this BABES UNITE shirt- It's 100% cotton, made in LA, distressed, relaxed, AND comfy as hell. P.S. 20% ¬†of the proceeds are donated to planned parenthood.* Personally, catcalls make me feel incredibly self conscious, and¬†my initial reaction is to slouch and walk quickly away. As someone who resents the term babe, and the numerous catcalls it usually accompanies, this shirt is my exception. In the same way Reformation's "not your baby" silk track jacket was empowering,¬†the phrase takes back ownership...

Black on Black

Black-Layers-4
      Black has always been our favorite color. Especially when investing in a coat or great sweater that you want to last, you can't go wrong with black. The best way to keep an all black look fresh, is by mixing in some fun accessories. A lot of these items were from sample sales and are not avail. in stores or online. However, check the links below for similar picks!

New Frayvorite Jeans

I did it. I made my dream jeans without spending a dime. Fortunately I had the perfect pair to begin with, but even if you have to thrift a great, inexpensive pair, this is the easiest update and all you need are a pair of scissors. Read the DIY post here, and note that even though the video suggests using a needle and thread for a few tacks, I didn't reinforce the seams and they're holding up totally fine. Trench- Calvin Klein / Shirt (Old)- Zara (similar here) / Jeans- DIY / Shoes- Sol Sana...

DIY – Make Old Denim New

While different fashion sites claim certain jean styles are "in" or "out", I've always believed that at the end of the day denim is one of the few areas of fashion where trends actually turn at a slowish rate. For example, even if skinny jeans aren't topping the charts in terms of silhouette, they will always sell. Same for boyfriend jeans, and same for flares and culottes. Not all at the same frequency, but denim is so ingrained into our every day lives that people gravitate towards comfort and what fits their body type more often than purchasing a new pair every season. Good denim is not exactly cheap, and so in my opinion , it makes more sense to invest in...
