Outfit of the Day: Industrial GreyPosted: July 14, 2012
I am so inspired by the pairing of soft and hard, feminine and masculine, industrial and vintage. It seems like every outfit/post I create inherently has those stylistic contradictions. Today we shot photos near the construction site on 34th. I am very excited to see what the new retail/residential buildings will look like. The materials of iron, concrete and (quite frankly) dirt were a perfect backdrop for my outfit’s shades of grey and brown.
Necklaces from top to bottom: 1) Shell, brass and wood bead choker by Winifred Grace. 2) Gold plated and sterling silver cicada necklace by Knight&Hammer. 3) Sterling silver, brass and shell necklace by Winifred Grace.
I am quite obsessed with this Illamasqua nail varnish (English brand, so it is “varnish”) in Nomad. LOVE.
Bracelets: 1) Sterling silver men’s ID bracelet by hitchcock Madrona. 2, 3) Personal. 4) Leather and metal “Ace” bracelet by Surplus.
Harriet, the talented designer of the jewelry line Surplus, brought in this leather and metal “Ace” bracelet. I just assumed that she had custom made it for me (Ace is my son’s name btw). She actually made the bracelet without knowing my son’s name! Eerie coincidence. I wear it constantly and could never part with it. She also made, upon our request, several blank bracelets that we can customize. I highly recommend this bracelet – I love everything about mine! They are all one-of-a-kind and made from recycled leather, which is worn to perfection.
I love this shot of the gold gilded cicada necklace by Knight&Hammer. He is a fancy gutter dweller!
