For a night out in a black suit. 

My definition of classic shoes revolves around creepers, slip ons, brogues and trainers.  That's it.

  This time I had a go with classic shoes from Sperry but worn in three different ways; a crochet dress with a mens hat, a vintage mens fringe jacket and a black jacket and trousers that aren't a suit but together can pass as one.

More photos are on Sperry's site!

adidas stan smith

The shirt is a find from the mens shirt section at my local second hand shop.  It looks like one of those shirts guys wear under a three piece.

The Stans have been on my feet a lot. I had a five minute conversation with a random fellow Brit at Grand Central station two days ago about them after she stopped me to ask where I got them. It's always cool to bump into someone from England when in New York. It's like having a slice of home for a few minutes.

Shirt: Mens second hand/thrift shop. Try Asos mens section or Madewell.  Shorts: Forever21. Try Blank Denim.  Shoes: Adidas Stan Smith. Bag: Chanel. Try Tory. Shades: Ray-Ban

I was just saying on Facebook how I remember the days living in London and I'd come to New York with my mate Paula on long shopping weekends. The exchange rate was in our favor and we'd shack up at some cheap hotel and power shop and eat 'anything American' while looking for cool trainers to wear back in London.

I was obsessed with wearing boyish trainers with everything.  We both were.

God those were the days...

Your Steal Summer Skirt FOUND!

  Skirt: Forever21. Mens DIY sleeve hacked Tshirt: Second hand/thrift. Bag: Chanel

This week a friend was wearing this skirt and my brows arched when she said where it was from. She gave me an extra (thank you Ju!)  and I had to share it here.

It's super long with a flattering wide waistband so it can be doubled over to adjust the length or leave as is.  Perfect for weekends and small enough to roll up into a holiday suitcase.

Badass now with cut off t-shirts.  Badass later with giant knits, boots and brimmed hats.

I do not need to tell you either that it works as a strapless dress with a low slung belt.
