Currently Craving

Leandra Medine | March 2, 2012
During a routine interweb perusal yesterday I fell upon the bottom right pair of calf length Laurence Dacade studded boots and all the sudden the contents of my closet seemed obsolete, obscure, unworthy. I closed the browser though and exercised good judgement: it’s March and the loin heaters at hand run north of $1000. It was a mere twenty seconds though before I re-opened said browser and began to play a riveting round of If the Internets Were My Closet and that’s when I remembered the great thing about virtual fashion. Even if you can’t or maybe just won’t buy whatever product you’re craving, you can use the world wide web as your digital closet of sorts to style the items without unleashing a load on your wallet, get it out of your system and move on your merry way. It’s better to have good style that you can hold on to forever than just good things that will render irrelevant the following season anyway.

Today, we revolve three looks around the Laurence Dacade boots. At left: A yellow Carven coat paired with grey Chaser t-shirt because it says Hooker and Sonia by Sonia Rykiel white silk pleated skirt with colors, Duke. Colors. Or a Karl by Karl Lagerfeld two tone leather vest paired over a flimsy and girly Theyskens’ Theory pink mini dress. Finally, a Topshop muscle tee under–yes, under–a black bustier bralette hybrid undergarment and skinny light wash jeans. The accessories remain the same: your neck will benefit from DANNIJO’s Medine bib or the array of Mono & Me adjustable bracelets clad in skull or star paraphanalia. They’re Colette approved friendship bracelets, and that’s cool.

    I know exactly what you mean! I love using my blog to play with clothes I might never buy! I love all your picks! I can get lost in Net-a-Porter for hours! I bought a really manrepelling vintage suede waistcoat today. I thought of you when I bought it because I know my boyfriend is going to HATE it! I'm not sure if I've commented on your blog before but it is one of my daily reads!

    Much love!
