Velvet to Vagabond
A journey of self discovery.
At last, we meet again and this time in slideshow formation! While I am freezing the dark, round mole off my right butt cheek in a less spontaneously cold-weather stricken Scotland, I know what you’re going through on the east coast and all I want to do is recycle a Katy Perry fostered joke about being hot and then cold (and then hot, again.) Layering tutorials have never seemed as pertinent as they do in light of the characteristically ambiguous nature of our climate temperament. But what has happened to it and are the polar bears okay?
While you mull that over, let’s peek through these photos.
Step 1 includes a black velvet slip dress (from The Reformation) reminiscent of what? Hint: it’s Clueless related.
Step 2 starts the layering and subsequent man-repelling process incorporating a Charles Henry white lace t-shirt. Fabric blocking won’t get old.
Step 3 unleashes an inner 90s child, incorporating an orange and grey Thakoon sweater around my waist, made readily available to lift over my shoulder should I get colder. But then Step 4 eliminates the cold and includes a Charlotte Ronson green utility blouse.
Lightweight for the sake of Step 5, which, ta da: contains an embellished Isabel Marant jean jacket ostensibly made for summer night but durable for winter days.
My toes get cold while I count to Step 6, enter the black and grey striped calf-length socks and beige Sigerson Morrison taupe boots. Why wear black when you can wear beige, am-I-right? And finally, the Maison Michel little baby hat (7), made to sit on the crown of my head, only through static air.
Okay, your turn. Photos by Naomi Shon
