I’ve been wanting to wear this full on orange look for awhile, but hadn’t quite found the right occasion. And then it came to me… Elaine Torres, my photographer, and I had been wanting to shoot some outfits at LACMA, and this was the first look that came to mind – it’s bold, quirky, and great for an evening of art and inspiration. I love art – in fact, I’ve written a few posts about my museum visits to Keith Haring and the Annenburg Space for Photography. And I like my outfits to be as eccentric as the exhibits I’m attending, make this orange fringe number the perfect choice! Also, it’s my second foray into the fringe trend, and I clearly have a thing for fringe skirts because I keep gravitating towards them!
My love affair with white has been a VERY long slow brew. If you would have told me 4 years ago that I would be wearing any of the following, I would have slapped you across the face and begged for mercy: white jeans, white shorts, or all white from head-to-toe.
I’m not sure where or when my disdain for the color white started. I think it has to be somewhere around high school? I’d be lying if I said I’m not weight conscious, and I think my innate contempt for white evolved from the ideology that white makes you look bigger. It took me up until maybe last year to get over that notion and give it a try, and I’m so glad I did! The result is undeniably chic. However, I’m still not going to be showing off my ass in skin tight white skinnies… yet. Let’s wait until the results of my newly hired personal trainer kick in. My styling trick when wearing all white is to go with loser fabrics and silhouettes. I don’t care HOW trim you are, tight white could even expose cellulite on Karlie Kloss (ok maybe not, but you get me.)
