Summer Lookin'

I'm HOME. That of course, merits some welcome-back-home shopping. So I was sitting in Chanel with my mom and in walks the coolest dressed girl I've seen all day- and she was wearing this dress:

I instantly recognized her dress was Marc by Marc Jacobs because I just bought the hot pink shirt version of this print hours before on sale. And she translated this runway look into streetwear very well. Here is what she wore:

The dress (of course).

And really, the dress is very loose and wasn't meant to be worn by itself like how the model above is. So, she had on Marc by MJ's long skinny sleeved top (in exactly the same shade as shown in this picture) underneath. And yes, although they look very similar here, the two colors do have contrast. Although I think the contrast worked especially well because her complexion was really pale.

In addition to that, she was also carrying this Vuitton Antigua tote and last season's Dior Vintage Flower ballet flats.

I was very impressed that I was able to recognize the brand of everything she was wearing (I bet if I had a close-up I'd also be able to identify her dangling earrings as Dior). But anyway, back to the point, I LOVED the overall look and feel she was emanating. It was effortlessly cool, girly, chic and casual- the perfect street translation of the dress's runway look.

She sounds well-dressed... But, to me, it's even better when i DON'T recognize every single name brand in an outfit... Style is not just about flaunting your money and pulling on the latest from MJ, Chole, or Dior; it's more personal than that. Frankly, it's a bit tacky to be head to toe designer...

I am loving the skinny sleeve top, but cannot find it anywhere to buy. I am guessing this top has already sold out. Any suggestions on a alternative?

hey anon-- as a ballerina i have been wearing similar tops for years.. this is obviously not as polished but as a temp fix just take a pair of pink (or whatever color) ballet tights and cut the fabric crotch part(excuse my frankness) out.. then cut off the toes and youve got a 12 dollar top...

Wearing recognisable designer gear from top to toe is so not what I aspire to. Think it shows a severe lack of imagination, or as my mum would say 'More Money Than Sense'.

But whatever floats your boat.
