What I am wearing today…..Stripes on StripesPosted: July 19, 2012
A special thanks two these two adorable girls eating their ice cream in Madrona. We couldn’t resist capturing this idyllic summer scene.
I (and the rest of the world) can’t stop wearing striped shirts. This one, bought in the men’s department, luckily has some refreshing new details. I wanted to create more stripes to really take the outfit to the almost ridiculous – the two necklaces are striped and so is my belt.
Necklaces: (top to bottom) 1) Woven cotton collar, Venessa Arizaga. 2) Crystal, Pearl and Metal Necklace, IOSSELlIANI. 3) Bronze and Lapis Arrow Necklace, Pamela Love NYC.
The thin gold chain is one that my dad wore daily when I was growing up. It has been sitting in his jewelry box for about 15 years with a broken clasp. I resurrected it, after asking permission of course, and have been wearing it constantly. I love mixing family heirlooms with fun/fashion jewelry. They personalize a look beyond just composing a great combination. Antique pieces, especially from a loved one, give your look a dimension that I can’t quite articulate. Is it the soul that old things possess? Or, what the sentiment does to the wearer? Not sure. Plus, I am also really into longer necklaces right now! I will write more on that later.
