The name of the game

is texture. I have a lot of different textures going on in this outfit, but they seem to get along just fine.

Wearing pin-striped shorts from H&M, a thrifted blazer, suede OTK's from Zara and a vintage gold chain. And looking ultra couture with my non-posed pose. But not really.

Like a true product of the '80s I had to toss on a Poison concert tee to rebel against my jacket, shorts and vintage brooch.

Remember when Whitney Port was called "too matchy matchy" at Teen Vogue? I used to be a matchaholic. A thick gold chain with a charcoal tee? Black boots with navy shorts? This outfit would've given me a hernia a few years ago.

  12. hahaha it's amazing how one's style could evolve within the span of a couple years, huh? matchaholic - i was definitely guilty of that at some point in my life.

    that blazer is so chanel! i almost bought one from zara rather similar but definitely not in price.

    thank you for your comments on my blog! i'm slowly, but surely catching up! :)

  18. oh man...poison. dear lord, brett michaels is one special human being (um rock of love anyone?) but other than that i love the outfit and play on textures. i cannot stand when girls would match a stripe on their shirt to the exact shade as their headband and socks...effortlessly chic is always the way too go!
