Who Wears Short Shorts?

Wearing: One Teaspoon Shorts | Urban Outfitters Tee | Vintage Vest - Similar 

We wear short shorts- in the summer, in the winter, with tights, and with boots.. We wear them embellished with studs, ripped and destroyed, acid-washed, and bleached just the right amount. Denim shorts have been around, well, for a long time, and have evolved with us and because of us. They've gone from high-wasted, to low-cut, and back to high-wasted. Different washes and ways to destroy these shorts while still being very wearable have been created to make jean shorts a staple in fashion. We don't expect everyone to understand the "destroyed phenomenon", and it's definitely hard to explain why we love to wear only the most beat-up and washed-out looking denim to our elders. But, when worn with the right outfit, a pair of these shorts can look edgy and fashionable. They can create that perfect rocker look, indy vibe, or 70's style. 

My go to denim brand is hands down the Australian rebells One Teaspoon. Get yourself a great pair, it's a must.


This Little Number

Wearing: Zara Top - Similar | Vintage Skirt - Similar | Dolce Vita Booties 

Yesterday I stopped by The Vintage Twin Trunk Show on 23rd st and picked up this little number. I've never been a skirt girl, but come on guys - it's leather and studded. I'm also wearing a new pair of clear sunnies I got from Urban Outfitters and have now realized that my collection has grown to a whopping 30 pairs. Yes, this means I will be working on a video post sometime soon to show you my hoarding skills when it comes to snazzy eyewear. 


Nail Art

Yesterday the cooler-than-I'll-ever-be Miss Handly (Destinee Handly) graced me with her presence and gave me some summer nail art. The up and coming nail artist has done everything from chain-mail manicures to patriotic tips with skull art. Seriously, she can do everything.

Don't forget to stop The Vintage Twin TRUNK SHOW starting today and tomorrow if you're in NYC! Details in the post below...

My relationship with vintage has found its perfect date - The Vintage Twin TRUNK SHOW! Now if you don't remember my blog post on my first encounter with the girls behind the vintage, then let me remind you of how awesome it was HERE. So, tomorrow and Wednesday they will be selling the hunted/re-worked treasures they've been keeping for themselves all this time, and I'll be there too! Come hang on Wednesday from 6-10pm and shop with me - maybe even get invited to our exclusive after party too! Remember, there's only ONE of everything!   



Wearing: The Reformation everything

My new obsession is a hidden gem on the Lower East Side, The Reformation. If you haven't been yet, then you haven't seen the amazing pieces that you can only find at this store. It's repurposed vintage meets sustainable fashion meets an edgy and chic environment I just can't get enough of. I took these pics while shopping around the other day and definitely plan on going back soon. 

Also guess what my new hobby is? http://imageheavy.tumblr.com/ check it out.

Wearing: Vintage Overalls - Similar | Zara Top | Vintage Guess Boots (Daha Vintage

Discovered...yet another amazing vintage store on the Lower East Side called Daha Vintage (175 Orchard st). Thanks to my best friend who moved down there this month, I now have so many more boutiques to throw my money at. But really, these vintage Guess boots were a great find if you ask me. So, excuse me in advance if I wear them too much for the next few weeks!

Just wanted to say a quick note to all my readers - I look at all your comments everyday and truly appreciate all the love and support you guys have given me. You definitely keep me going and reassure me that I'm doing something right here! So, don't think it goes unnoticed :)

The Shops

Wearing: Citizens of Humanity Shorts | Necessary Clothing Top | Rebecca Minkoff Striped Canvas M.A.C Clutch | Topshop Shoes

Calling All Artists, there's an awesome bag design contest going on right now hosted by The Shops at Columbus Circle and Lucky Magazine to create the first ever official tote bag! I was brought on to help promote this project and took a little shopping trip myself there, leaving with these cute floral denim shorts. Click here for more details on the contest! Anyways, I'm loving my new Rebecca Minkoff bag I received in the Hamptons last week because it just feels so perfect for summer. Speaking of Hamptons, I'm off for another weekend away.. TGIF


Pattern Play

Wearing: Topshop Tank | ASOS Shorts | Cheap Monday Booties 

I recently got these ASOS printed shorts in the mail and couldn't wait to wear them. They're perfect for summer because of their light-weight and bright pattern. ASOS has been killing it lately with their amazingly curated inventory, if only they would open a store here like Topshop did. I think we'd all go broke though... I know I would.

NEED your help! Click on this link (here) and LIKE this photo of me on Rebecca Minkoff's facebook page... if I win than one of you win too!

Wearing: H&M Sleeveless Button Up | Sheer Blouse - Similar | Vintage Boots  

In today's outfit: a sheer high-low blouse a.k.a. a summer essential. I feel like my blog has had a very grungy feel to it lately so, even though this outfit isn't all colorful and full of life, I think bright white button up underneath was a good touch (and of course it's buttoned up all the way). Speaking of - the other day one of my guy friends asked me what the deal was with this button-up-to-the-top thing I have going on whenever I wear this type of shirt... My response to his "that's so not sexy" comment was that I really don't care. If I'm going to try and be sexy it will be in other ways than showing off my "chest." I'm no man-repeller but I definitely don't dress for men either!  


Red Terrace

Wearing: Equipment Shirt | ASOS Shorts | Dolce Vita Loafers | Karen Walker Sunnies

TGIF, seriously. I had a great meeting today with my friend at the Mondrian Hotel in Soho about some up-coming events this summer that I'm really excited about! If you haven't been to the Mondrian yet you're really missing out. From it's feathered lamp shades in the lobby to its luxurious Red Terrace (above), the Mondrian Soho has some of the nicest decor in NYC. Can't wait to get my drink on at Mister H later tonight and dance my butt off. 

Happy Weekend!
