NYC Florals

Top: 3.1 Phillip Lim // Blazer: Express (old) (similar here and here) // Jeans: Current/Elliott (here, here, and here) // Rings: Zales, Jest Jewels and Cartier // Shoes: Charles David 

Phillip Lim's SS13 collection is freaking amazing. I want the entire collection! I initially wanted the black 'Get it Girl' tank but opted for this white 'NYC' tank instead because my closet can stand to see more white. Sadly, though, I've yet to visit the city - but it's definitely something I will do in the near future. In the meantime, I will bask in the glory which is this top and look forward to restyling it over and over and over. For this look I paired it with my brand new Current/Elliott jeans. This is my first pair of Current/Elliott's. I must say, they fit really well (aka they make your derriere look fab) and the material is excellent - not too thin, not too heavy, not too stretchy, not too stiff, etc. etc. And since I'm obsessed with distressed jeans at the moment, I chose a pair with slight rippage. 

If you noticed, my 'lil sissie made an appearance. When she has time she helps make sure I don't look like a complete idiot. I did not anticipate how incredibly awkward it is to pose in front of a camera when you're not a model (sigh). It is quite funny though, when bystanders stare at you having your picture taken as if you were a model. Nevertheless, thanks to my "crew" - couldn't do this without you!
