A Virtual Mood Board of Sorts

Leandra Medine | April 15, 2011

All the feet, wiggy torsos and skinny wrists wearing shit tons of bracelets on the pages of Streetfsn and Jak & Jil really inspire my soul. In light of it, peep this week’s highlighted details below.

Anna Dello’s Jil Sander peplum is a really important way to start any day. Especially when it rains. Because when it rains, it pours. And when it pours, I get dramatic and say things like “I want to kill the sky,” and then when I see this photo, I remember that if I were to kill the sky, the world would cease to exist and in that situation, the prospect of owning my own peplum would no longer be a prospect. Chew on that.
 Monday blues turn green with muppets when monochrome shots surface.
Tell me about it, stud.
Balenciaga shoes are like mullets, you see. Business on the top…party on the back!
And on the pages of Jak & Jil…could this be considered ombre? Or just a really devoted lesson in tie dying?
While yes, prints rock, so do fake pockets imprinted onto jeans. See what I did just now? Prints, prints, printz.
Here is Taylor Tomasi Hill’s arm looking fly as ever. Note that pun or die. If her photographs have taught me anything, it is that party-clad-arms are the key to Tommy Ton success. Agree or disagree?
And finally, Yves Saint Laurent’s hit shoe of summer. Sure yes, you can buy this shoe but why not just buy one that is actually three sizes bigger for the same effect. Seems craftier.
In a similar vein, you can also just jump on the Margiela boat and get these. Is it a boot? Is it a sandal? Is it the Bronx Zoo’s Cobra? The world may never know. (photographed by Naomi)

AND OMFG: In case you’re wondering what I did last night and what I wore while doing what I did, the answer is below.
blazer and booties: Rag & Bone, tee: Kain, skirt: L’Agence
I was at Ilori on Spring St for the L’Agence x Sama Eyewear launch party wearing a cool suede fringe mini skirt that dangles when I walk. Pocahontas chic, or what? …Here’s the even better part though.
Mickey Rourke under the same roof.

    Love your skirt, looked for it – omg, the price!

  • Great post! I'm loving those YSL shoes, so architectural! And I feel the same way about rain and here's another thought for you…if it didn't rain we wouldn't get the pretty flowers that are finally budding all over the city! Yay!

  • I totally love how tommy ton shoots mid-level pics, such fantastic images of details and accessories 😀
    Awesome outfit! And fab Margiela sandle booties. Ohhh heyy Mickey~~~ he's funk-tastic looking as ever ;p xo Diana

  • I have seen these photo's so many times, but i love the compilation, you have brought the best of the best together. you are like: oh that i should do, oh that is a great idea, oh really should keep that in mind, … . I am in love with your blazer because of that fabulous 80's color. it is actually a pretty long vest, so it is a fashion paradox with the skirt. the skirt is so much more feminine than the blazer, that's why it works out so well. the YSL are a mystery: are they suppose to be that big, anyway, you can make your own decision about it, it is like, pimp up your own shoes

  • I was waiting for that photo of Anna to show up. Thought you were getting soft for awhile… 🙂 Much love!

  • Loooove ;D

  • those ysl are interesting,i love the spiky end but will we look like a girl walking in mom's shoes?

  • You look fantastic channeling the Pocahontas chic vibe. Jak & Jil's display of street style photos this week was complete eye candy—I especially was enamored with the tie dyed "ombre" hair, the nautical mix up, and the devilish YSL heels.

    Those boots are on my list. As with the ombre hair, it's just a cooler, more Asian way to do the ombre style.
