The Runways that Ran Way: Recreating Tracy Reese

This obviously induces a whole bunch of excitement into my pants as yeshiva stars are all the rage in Manhattan. But what with the cold weather finally finding a back burner and the warm weather starting to creep up through our spines, only to beg that we nix the tights and don our hairy legs, what good are Fall runways now?
With a little help from your friend, me, pretty damn good is the answer to the aforequestion. Because I’m not only going to show you how to get this look with budget-conscious repelling in mind, I’m going to give it a little spring update. And by update, I mean upd8. Spring is here, let’s ring it in.
…Or we can go streaking. Your call. In any case:
I liked the use of burnt orange at Tracy Reese, so I followed suit on that trend, but as far as silhouettes were concerned:
I was all about the opening look. The rich silk fabric on the yeshiva skirt complimented the chunky knit that lives atop in a way that screamed: “I don’t need this dead skunk on my neck to disappoint the male eye but regardless, I’ll wear it.” Someone wants to take home the celibacy award tonight, eh?
And not for anything, I’m going to streak my hair to match my outfits, too.
I gave the look, as promised, a springy-ting-a-lingy flair mc’nair. While the knit is still considered “chunky,” it’s light and transparent. Instead of wearing booties, I chose an old slingback sandal with a fancy little bow at the toe. Foreshadow? I think yes. In one final effort to springatize, I rolled the skirt a few folds so to reveal some of my sexy little ankles.
Crack them, I dare you.
And just a short note about this skirt, way back when I hosted a Rebecca Minkoff fashion show ticket giveaway in February, the winner came to New York baring the gift of all gifts: this pleated maxi skirt from American Apparel. Thanks, Amber. Your heart is made of gold and acid wash.
So guys, wasn’t this fun?
