White Heat







 
Leather jacket: Zara (try this or this one). Dress: ASOS (found similar or this one).  Sandals: All Saints for Men (found similar). Bag: Balenciaga. Shades: Ray Ban.  Necklace: Jennifer Zeuner (another favourite).  Rhinestone bracelet: Thrifted (or this one).

Took these quick shots before running into the city today to pull clothes for a project. Will say a bit more about it soon :-)

Today was a good time to wear the man sandals blogged about below.  You just don't get that sort of finish from women's sandals.  It's bad enough us women shop like we do, now we're rummaging through the mens sections as well.  Kathy - I read your comment in the WDUGT Spotlight post below about getting them too. LMK what you think when they arrive!!!

ps. Check out the street style blog to see the girl I shot wearing the sandals.

pps. Old post of this dress with knee high boots here.

  5. I've been coveting that studded jacket for quite some time. Seeing it on you and how fabulous you look convinces me that I must just need to cave in and get it!

  6. This is one of my favorites! The details and contrasts - dark vs light, hard vs soft, structured vs flowy - in this look are so interesting and wearable. Thanks for the inspiration!

  11. Those sandals are perfect, I like how they're basic. I think that companies tend to over glam up gladiator sandals with studs and jewels when all you really want is something easy and basic.

    1. SOOOO AGREED Camilla on the over glamming. It't taking away from what made gladiators appealing in the first place.

  18. I can't get over how much I love those sandals. They're classic, plain, and chic...which is truly amazing for men's sandals. I might have to pick myself up a pair as well. I love how you styled them, too, with flowly, feminine fabrics and silhouettes. Amazing!
