Well, hello everyone! So today's post is a continuation of the series of looks from my Parsons scholarship video that I recently submitted. If you have no idea what I'm talking about check out this previous post for the complete run down on the competition and my video entry. Anyways, this look sums me up quite nicely, because it illustrates the different sides of my style aesthetic in one cohesive look that actually works. It's preppy, cultural, and just the right amount of sexiness.
For this look I chose the skirt first and everything else followed. I sewed this skirt myself, like I do with most of my pencil skirts because a perfectly fitting pencil skirt can do wonders for a woman's body. I used an ankara print from Vlisco and I added four inch black fine to the bottom that I ordered from Fabric.com. I absolutely LOVE this skirt because of the amazing feather print and the fringe which is like the icing on the cake for me. Adding the fringe to made the skirt more on trend because fringe has been everywhere on the runways for the past year or so, and it also helped to bring some movement.
I recently found this red Lacoste sweater that I bought years ago in the guest bathroom closet of my house, don't ask how it got there because I have no idea. I originally was going to wear the sweater with the skirt but I was experiencing some fit issues, so I opted for my wardrobe staple– the classic white button down from J. Crew. The white shirt brought balance to the look, and the Lacoste sweater served as the perfect pop of color. I was inspired by the black and gold stripes on the ankara, or Dutch Wax Print skirt, so I opted for my linear black and gold Dolce Vita gladiator heels. And to complete the look I wore some dusted 14 karat gold earrings and my signature red lip, MAC's Ruby Woo. So what did you guys think about the look? Is it bad, I mean the good bad, or nah??? Let me know, because I always love hearing from you all.
Thanks for giving me a piece of your time, I always really appreciate it. Lots of love your way.
