The What I Wores

Spring/Summer 2014 Edition

It’s that time of season again. Something you should keep in mind while clicking and scrolling through the above and below images is this: in order to accrue the aforementioned images, I had to spend considerable time on google and Pinterest, typing in my own name to the search box and watching the results infiltrate my page. If ever I try to argue that unlike my millennial counterparts, I am not a narcissist, please hit me over the head with that beacon of information. Then pull my hair out, one strand at a time.

Kidding, please don’t do that. But I digress.

While I’d argue my clothing is becoming sufficiently less interesting to watch with the progressing Fashion Week seasons (this may or may not be the subconscious – or fully conscious – impact of the prolific New York Fashion Week circus story of February), maybe noteworthy is paying attention to the trends I’ve adopted as my own. For example: white – lots of it. A generous helping of ripped denim that I refuse to let go away. And, of course, some version of the notorious FUPA shorts, in the instance chronicled, set in a stiff leather so thin, the slightest bend over will result in a rip (as evidenced by the slightest bend over and largest rip) which even more keenly asserts the former nickname, but I guess you had to be there? Lucky for you (me?) you’re here now.

Woo!

At left you’ll find me mini stepping toward the Ralph Lauren show in Sally LaPointe shorts and a blouse, Balenciaga brogues and Reece Hudson bag. At right, my steps are better distanced from one another while I wear a Rosie Assoulin top and JNCO inspired jeans, a Valentino purse and Dannijo bracelets.

The photo at left is from the day I departed from my home thinking I was a pilot. When I stepped into a cab, I realized that was not in fact true but it was too late to turn back. I’m just glad that at no point did anyone asked for my help flying a plane, knaaamean? At right I’m wearing an embroidered Anhha blouse and skirt. I’ll be real — the set was sent to me but I just fucking loved it. The pumps are Manolo Blahnik which – and I’m not sure if you know this – come in 463281 different heel heights. Always opt for the highest. The highest.

This is from the day I thought it might be funny to pretend that I am Tom Cruise but only his Risky Business-induced heyday. In a Christopher Kane dress and Prada heels, I think I done okay. The choker is by Anneliese Michelson. At right, I’m wearing a Thom Browne top and skirt, Blk Denim leather jacket around my waist and Valentino heels.

And finally, here’s a double douche-bag score for you! Wearing the Givenchy score from Yoox, an Acne muscle tee, a B-Low The Belt belt (a nice contender when held up against any plain black Isabel Marant belt), Asos jeans and Brian Atwood heels. I bought the sunglasses from Loehmann’s, they are Prada and it just occurred to me that somewhere toward the end of the week I developed a proclivity to wearing my handbags messenger style — more in that later.

So, are you sleeping yet?

    Your Thom Browne look is the epitome of what I wish I could’ve worn during my private school days. Love it!

  • Chic Trends

    Over here at the ChicTrends office we all said that your Christopher Kane dress/look was the best! It must have been the risky business feel but we thought that, not only did you look gorgeous, but you looked so cool! One can only hope to look so cool in an oversized shirt like that one.

    Best regards, x http://chictrends.co.uk/

  • Amatoria Clothing

    I can’t even handle the Rosie look. I think you should give it a Marc Jacobs twist and wear just the top with massive granny panties. Meow!

  • Leslie Hitchcock

    Click through to Anhha site, find this. Cue the sad trombone.

    You killed it, every outfit. And you are relentlessly self-deprecating, so already plus 100. YGG- you go grrrrrl!

  • Greer Clarke

    I have never been able to master that loose ponytail/bun thing in your last outfit, which is annoying because my hair is just like yours! Tutorial tutorial! (And I ain’t getting bangs thanks)

  • Patricia M.

    generally I shy away from all whites, but as of late I’ve been all about the white. I think the rule of no whites after Labor Day no longer apply. btw, my fave is the Rosie Assoulini number. it has a great flow to it and creates a wonderful shape. it reminds me of origami.

  • Pblah

    You have the greatest body and legs, I am dying of envy. And for the record, my boyfriend thinks you look lovely. Not repellant at all!

  • Naomi du Plessis

    I read “bacon of information”. Mmmmm, bacon.

    The last look is my favorite–you’re floating atop those long, delicate heels! Something about it reminds me of a praying mantis (and I mean that in a good way)!

    Thanks for the signed book, Leandra! It meant so much! -Deena’s daughter.

    Ok so I try not to obsess over people but now I’m hooked. The fact that you wrote “knaaamean” just made my day and now I’m hooked. And now I have to re-read this post cause I lost my train of thought. Sigh.
