jersey girl

Jersey dress: Forever 21. Sequin top: Thrift. Boots: Minnetonka. Top hat: Free People. Leather jacket: Zara. Bag: Thrift (DIY studded). Shades: Ray Ban. Winter leggings & thigh high socks: American Apparel (unseen). Nails: Sally Hansen High Definition. Crucifix: Fashionology
Took these shots a few days ago so a bit late in posting. This is the ‘tattered’ sequin top that I posted about here.
I liked the look of it layered over a long grey jersey dress. Underneath are American Apparel winter leggings (they are a God send), plus thigh high socks on top and a wool cardi under the jacket.
I tell you, it’s like bloody rocket science trying to layer in New York at the moment.
ps. Thank you American Apparel for the pic of me here wearing your fleece pants.
pps. Garance, I saw you listed in the same spot. I am soooo copying your DIY idea.

    Eugenia – I like

    Redheadfashionista – its me : )

    Fashion Chalet – thanks girl! Hurry up and get a long dress already.

    Alicia – Thx, I’ve fallen hard this winter for bright nails. The usual dark ‘rule’ just doesn’t feel right anymore. Especially when it’s winter.

    Diana – ha! Peace ; )

    Tiffany – thx for the heads up! i picked up a copy today : )

    All Women Stalker – get one. Makes a change from the usual.

    What is Reality Anyway – I’m still saying WTF over the Bess stuff!

  18. Karen says:

    Alyson – the snake ring is from a small accessories shop on 7th street in the East Village.
