city hippie

Tunic: Forever 21. Denim skirt: A&F. Sandals: Steve Madden. Bag: Thrift & DIY studded.
Custom zip bracelet by Tay Trong. Rest of jewellery: T&V, LF stores, NY street vendors
I love the grey colour of this tunic. A bit less expected than a citrus or crayon coloured version.
These sandals are one of my faves for walking around the city. They’re like a dainty version of a gladiator.
After weeks of staring at my stylist friend Tay’s wrist wearing his DIY zip bracelet, I had him finally make me one. The damn thing has not let a day pass without people asking me where I got it.
Ok so it’s a stretch but, it’s one item Kate Lanphear (Editor of Elle) and me both are seriously loving (she has already emailed Tay to find out what else he’s got since our meet last week).

    Tinklestar – i’ll take closer shots of it next time I post wearing it.

    Antonia – thanks! Its called Sea Breeze by Essie. Its like a cobalt blue. Get it!!!!

    Damsels – i still can’t believe it either.

    Everest – just get an exactor knife, bag of studs and pliars. That’s it! you cut the material with the knife and bend the stud teeth in place with the pliars.
