Details that Rock

jacket: 3.1 Phillip Lim, blouse: D&G;, dress: rag+bone, necklace: TOMTOM, bracelets: Mr. Kate. Photo by Naomi Shon

Ultimately, it’s almost always the details that perfectly string together the sartorial fiber of a well-groomed look. Here’s an old shot from a layering post I ran months ago. This is likely something of an unusual re-visit but I guess a good rule of thumb to control or identify narcissism is to look back at old photos and decide whether or not you feel inspired…by yourself. At this point, it seems I’m making like N and drowning in reflections. How tacky. Dimensions of different fabrics, prints, and silhouettes will always tug at my heart strings, but it’s really the copious bracelets and architecturally inspired neckwear that give whatever else is going on that small dose of character you probably wouldn’t have even known would make such a difference until you tried it. With this, I wish you a happy thanksgiving, consider it some turkey-day food for thought that spares the lives of any fancy winged creatures just trying to gobble, gobble and enjoy life on the farm. …Vive l’arm party.

    Ha this seems a bit like you wanted to see how many prints you could fit on top at once but somehow it kinda works together a little bit. Always been in love with that Pillip Lim jacket. Happy thanksgiving!

    You're layering is VERY different from my layering … but that's because you rock the sartorial socks.

    C'mon Leandra. OF COURSE you can pile away! You're tall & skinny and have an endless pair of limbs. I'd look like the turkey.

    I still love you and you're my fave blog ever, though.

    This is such a hodgepodge of awesomeness. Love the necklace in particular.

    Dear Leandra …Details do rock…I would love if you could do more posts on layering…like this look now I would never think to put all those prints together and even if I did it wouldn't look right to me, but on you it's art. Is this something that comes naturally, do you play around with pieces, and how do you know it looks good to you when it comes all together ?
