There are many reasons to love New York City. I love it here because I can wear whatever I want no matter how outrageous and there are a million events happening every hour of the day and night that call for such frivolity. There are very few cities in which you can take advantage of the full spectrum of fashion; underwear as outerwear shows up every third season on the runways and only in NYC can you really go to town.
I assembled this outfit for a New Wave night at Le Poisson Rouge with a friend who knows a million times more in the hip-cool-music-department (shit- am I more than thirty years behind the times?) Well, I never turn down an adventure - especially one that comes with a reason to dress up! I am not exactly punk-rock but I feel pretty bad-ass in this ensemble.
Spiked Bra - Necessary Clothing - I think they just opened their 27th store in Soho (all across the street from each other)
Leopard skirt - Ann Taylor - their sales are insanity - I got this $120 skirt for $10 - since their target demographic is a little more seasoned, the edgier stuff ends up on the sale rack.
Ombre Denim Vest - DIY - post to follow soon!
