jersey girl

Rick Owens Lilies jersey is the perfect thing to wear in the summer - drapey,
soft, thin, and comfortable. i've gotten by with the few pieces i own, but i
think it might be time to add to my collection - especially if this "hottest
july on record" trend continues.

Gucci t-shirt (super old, from eBay); Rick Owens Lilies skirt (old, from
Century21/NYC i think?); Alaia laceup heels (old, from yoox.com); Luxirare
"consolidated" bracelet (from shopluxirare.com)



as you can see, i was channeling my inner Carrie Bradshaw with the latter
look. if you do not have perfect washboard abs like she does (i'm still working
on mine!) i recommend hiding your bellybutton and showing just a sliver of skin
when wearing cropped tops - makes it a bit classier, in my humble opinion.

  1. I think the second look is so great. I'm a big fan of showing some skin above a highwaisted bottom, and your combination here works especially well, what with the interesting draping of the top and the tightness and length of the skirt. The bracelet solidifies the slightly avant garde egyptian feel of the outfit.

    Also, I have to agree with you about the RO jersey - it's so fabulous in hot weather, especially because it allows one to wear pieces with more coverage in the heat. My one gripe is the sheerness of many pieces, which sometimes requires one to layer and therefore negates the jersey's usefulness in the heat.

  2. I love both outfits and you look way better than Carrie! I got the luxirare cuff a few days ago. It's soo pretty! Again, lovely outfits!

  3. ^^ ah yes, sheerness is definitely an issue. I rely on Commando thongs for RO jersey, the dark nude color is pretty much an exact match to my skin. Works pretty well as long as the bottoms are loose and/or double-layered. Tops are a bigger problem for me - there's just no way I can hide any bra, no matter how seamless, under RO tops, even when I layer them. Most of his tops and dresses are definitely not very bra-friendly.

  4. Love the crop-top look - I'm a big fan of this (in the way that you wear it, with no belly-button showing).

  5. I like the modern Egyptian feel to this too. The draped Gucci top is cool.

  11. i love all the RO pieces! they always feel so nice. but any time i see them at century 21, there are holes in them. do yours seem to hold up well enough?

    also, i like your recommendation for how to safely show a little bit of stomach- it isn't so over-the-top as carrie bradshaw's look. ~joelle
