FNO, Already?

ALREADY? ?? ??? ????


It’s like the bathing suit is being ripped off my body. While the rest of us still mull over what will be come Labor Day Weekend, Shopbop wastes no time getting ready to usher Fall back in. Case in point: a homepage dedicated to preparations for Fashion’s Night Out. I can appreciate attentiveness and thus lend a gesticulated heart to depict that.

Below, an outfit full of subtle contradictions that actually amount to sweeping normalcy. A good example of easy dressing, if you will. Crystals with a t-shirt, elegant strappy sandals with ripped jeans, a blazer just for the heck of it and a pose that indicates beginning stages of the Bend and Snap.

Boy. by Band of Outsiders blazer, FNO t-shirt, Siwy jeans, Jenni Kayne heels, Dannijo necklace.

    Nothing like being prepared I suppose, even if that Shopbop email in my inbox this morning did elicit a smidge of eye roll as I never thought FNO would require so much…well…preparation 🙂

    Feeling your mix the most…big surprise…and would absolutely die for that blazer!

    I think we think on the same brain waves. My FNO post is scheduled for next week… And I often think of post ideas and you post them very soon after (before I can) and execute them much better than I can… Should I give up? hahaha

    Oh yes, looove those shoes. Wish I was in NY for FNO.
    Cheers! Chelsea
