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.

  • Your blog, is my newest, most amazing discovery.

    Om, nom, nom.

  • 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.

  • 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.
