What I Wore: Jumping into Oncoming Traffic

Leandra Medine | March 26, 2011
Often times a girl will wonder: If I’m going to jump into oncoming traffic today, what should I wear? Wonder no more. The answer is right below.
vest: Adrienne Landau, utility jacket: Urban Outfitters, scarf: Vintage, pants: Proenza Schouler for J Brand, shoes: Stubbs & Wootton. Image via Beautiful Stranger TV by Bruno Gaget

As you can see, purple paint splashed Proenza Schouler for J Brand pants are the most important element. Paired with little central American men shaking maracas as they do and a big fat vest that evidently begs the question: who the fuck does this girl think she is? …I’ve successfully repelled oncoming traffic. Which is good, you know, because I don’t necessarily want to get hit by a car.

Read the questions they asked–I answered–at your own disclosure here. I will say there are some gems, such as my green efforts, which involve recycling everything, including my jokes.

    Those purple paint splashed Proenza Schouler pants are definitely lifesavers. Despite their repelling effects, they are gorgeous. And I'm still obsessing over your luscious Stubbs & Wootton loafers.

    much love.

    I'm surprised you didn't mention Hanneli as one of your style icons! :O
    Anyways … I'm jealous that you still have to wear scarves and shit while I'm over here avoiding the temptation to peel all my clothes off.
