Need a pick me up? Well let me infuse you with some flower power.
Orchids happen to be my favorite type of flower, right next to cherry blossoms (Fun fact: cherry blossoms was my third tattoo). So naturally, when I found out that there was going to be an Orchid Exhibition in the Bronx, my soul instantly floated there. My body came later. This weekend, to be exact. On top of that wonderful exhibition, the lovely clerk upon the gate informed me that they had a Cherry Blossom hill. My soul did some extra somersaults.
I dressed comfortably because I had a long photoshoot the day before and a boozey brunch date that I was looking forward to right after. Gorgeous families, numerous couples, and other flower lovers caught me strolling around 250 acres of green and beauty in Maggie Jeans' white cotton maxi and arm candy that blended in with all the beautiful colors in the exhibition. Teece Torre and Ettika never fails when it comes to arm parties.
I have a secret - I love menswear almost as equally as womenswear.
My friends can vouch for me. I like the real slouch, quality, simplicity, and comfort of menswear. I also like a challenge - To femme up a piece meant to be placed on a more masculine figure. I picked up this great Staple Pigeon piece right out of Evolve Clothing Gallery. I’m digging the paint strokes and color combo. I’m still on a mean blue and black streak.
So, what menswear piece do you wish fashion houses made more of?
Personally, I want to see more joggers for women. Men have some great brands, including Publish Brand and Zanerobe. I have yet to find a great brand that carries high quality and unique joggers for women (at an affordable price, too).
Fashion isn’t reserved. Personal Style is definitely never reserved. It’s what you make it as long as your imagination allows it. Sometimes that means, taking a piece and reinventing it. I’m also obsessed with my new BCBG Gamma (On sale on Ideeli!). Those booties, though! You’ll definitely be seeing more of those. The legs are a bow to the great weather we were experiencing before the man upstairs decided to take it back. Why do you have to tease us like this?
