I had a client today where I did a closet clean-out so I needed something casual that I could move in. When working with a client boots and flats are always the best bet. Not to mention today was the first day here where it was in the high 70′s. I forget how hot it gets in this city with the humidity!
This story seems almost unreal. I stumbled across the Les Gazelles site via Oracle Fox and according to her this is a fantastically tanned set of sisters that live in Sayulita Mexico with their whole family. As if just being themselves wasn’t beautiful enough, they also own a boutique where they sell these gorgeous dresses.
So much for doing this every day huh ha. Back on track today! Here are a bunch of different editorials. Some of the best ones I’ve seen lately haven’t been form the big glossy titans so I wanted to add them to my editorial rotation today.
In my big clean-out I did keep a few things like these really old pair of seven jeans from high school. They are great for comfy outings and given that the day I wore them it was raining sideways they were perfect. I was meeting a client to do a quick shop, so layers needed to be easy.
What I wore: Seven jeans, Wicked Peacock feather earring, Planet Blue gold earring and shirt.
My friend Daniel from Life Is A Runway was actually walking the runway in this weekends Gamin/e fashion show put on by Haute Fashion of Northeastern University. You would seriously never know this was a student fashion show. So amazing in this old church I have to say.
Clothes were provided by LF Stores, Benetton, Banana Republic, and French Connection.
I follow lots of blogs and most I follow for the pictures. There are only a few where I actually read the words. New Brahmin is one of those. It’s one of the only voices in Boston that tells the current fashion scene like as is. Seriously as is ha. They have multiple updates daily and focus on the ‘need to know’ stories in fashion, style and shopping. I feel like I can’t do the site justice and they write a far funny blurb about themselves than I can.
New Brahmin’s About Me:
“Boston is the intellectual hub of America, full of progressive politics and champion sports teams. It is also a city where boybanders who are 15 years past their prime receive A-List attention (I still love you, Joey McIntyre) and “no sneaker” policies are the norm everywhere from shitty pubs to nightclubs. With more important distractions from business, academics, and athletics, this is a city with little time to care about style.
Looking at the sea of Red Sox caps, college sweatshirts, and blue oxford shirts that flood its streets, Boston appears as a blip on the style radar. However, there is a flourishing community of forward-thinking individuals who are influencing a more stylish Boston. Artists, designers, retailers, and the like are inspiring how we dress. The tweedy image of the Boston Brahmin is both dated and inaccurate. Now is the time of the New Brahmin.
New Brahmin is not a singular style. There is no dress code, uniform, or walk of life that illustrates a New Brahmin. It’s not a matter of the clothes or where they come from, it’s how they are worn. The attitude, the connotation, the appropriateness (or inappropriateness, if you will) all adds to the equation. New Brahmin is about creating a personal style and writing your own manifesto. We are here to connect the stylish and promote the cause throughout our city.”
That is more text for my site than I usually write but to balance things out I also wanted to show off some of their other skills like the amazing photoshoots they’ve done! See more projects and credits here.
I am usually one for loud and large jewelry but when I was at Planet Blue I saw these delicate designs by Rossmore. Rather than a delicate little blah, Rossmore offers an edgy alternative. I also love how things aren’t perfectly centered, which makes them easy and unique to layer.
