It’s been a rough week, and it’s been a long day (albeit productive and enjoyable): I filmed a vlog post, a friend and I talked shop and fashion over a cup of Earl Gray at her apartment for an hour, and I knocked a doppelbock and a porter back with my brother and my cousins at Growlers Beer Bistro in Tuckahoe (A+, yo). I was going to head down to Astoria to celebrate my friend, Lisa’s birthday, but ended up not being able to go, which was unfortunate because I love Lisa, AND my outfit was F-L-Y.
There are so many things I love about this outfit: the lengthening of the shirt in the back, the sexiness factor of the sheer-on-sheer top combo as seen below…
I also adore my amazing motorcycle boots. I was in need of a pair of black boots and stumbled across these bad boys at J. Crew recently; with my student discount and the additional sale discount, I paid little over $100 for a pair of very high-quality leather boots, which also look BAD. ASS (or arse; whichever you’d prefer).
Lastly, I had spent most of my day with a fun little companion. Meet Carmen.
Carmen is a leather Tory Burch bag in a color described by way of the price tag as “bordeaux”. The bag is not actually named Carmen; that was my own doing.
