The Full Monty on Sara LoMedico

varsity jacket

Definition: The Full Monty: 
British slang phrase.  It is generally used to mean “everything which is necessary, appropriate, or possible; ‘the works’”

I first met Sara about 18 months ago on a random Manhattan street. We bonded over the vintage bag that she was carrying that I asked her about and we quickly became friends.  I’ve always liked her boyish/feminine aesthetic and her mutual love of menswear which made her the right person to get the full monty on where she finds those pieces. 
. . . . .

“This is my favorite bomber jacket from a random consignment shop. 
I love anything that’s athletic inspired: For example I love the idea of a hoody with a deep red lip.”


Hat: Hat Hut around Great Jones Street/Broadway. 

“There’s this hat shop on Broadway in Noho area and they have these amazing hats that they sell for a lot uptown but they sell them for way less at their own shop so I’ll get a couple.  This one was $60 but they sell them uptown for around $300/$400.”


AL Cute shoes: Opening Ceremony sample sale

“I think these look like monsters and look violent. I paid $100 and they were $1500. I almost didn’t believe it.”


Hood By Air Shirt: Gift from sister
“This is totally boyish and I’m dying over it.  I just think it’s so badass. I wear it with shorts under so it looks like a shirt dress or with leather pants.  I like it because it’s so clean.”


“I was obsessed with this editorial that Joan Smalls did and I was so excited. I had this whole editorial for so long and then my sister got me the shirt and I thought ‘wait – I’ve seen that before!'”


Bag:  Brooklyn Williamsburg Flea Market
“I’m not much of a bag person but this is a vintage find that I wear out a lot.”


“I have a few rings that I wear all the time.   The signet ring on my little finger is from my Mum and I never take it off.”


“I have a problem with black boots obviously.
I’m either in sneakers or a really high heel. I don’t really do a mid heel.”



Rihanna for River Island Heels: Opening Ceremony Sample Sale
“I thought these were a good shape and I liked the color. I like a good baggy jean with a really stripy high shoe.”


“I love the Creative Director of Balmain. I am obsessed with his personal style. He’s always in a white T and leather pants so when I don’t know what to put on I’ll just wear that.”


“I have such an obsession with sports wear.
I draw a lot of my style and inspiration from R and B music.”


Hat: Stetson
“This is my favorite beach hat.”


Necklace: Cape Cod
“This is one of my favorite pieces ever….!”


“I wear it turned around on my neck.
I love going to Cape Cod. They have the best jewelry up there.”


Vintage Necklace. 

“The woman at the shop said this was a vintage Blvgari, I’ll usually wear this with just a T.”


APC Jeans
“These are really stiff and I LOVE that. They’re like old school carpenter jeans. I feel like Bob the Builder in these. I’ll usually wear them with a really high wedge.”


Nike ID
“These are my new favorites I did the insides black with a gum bottom which I thought was really classic.”

“When I shop I go online a lot. I like Asos, TopshopBarneys and I really like Revolve.  I love Dover Street Market just to cheek out the up and coming designers.  I LOVE Zara’s mens section.  It’s just simple and so well done.  I like the Brooklyn flea market.  I just like the hunt at different consignment and vintage – it’s like a hobby.
Honestly I feel like a boy trapped in a girl’s body!”
