Contrast

Blazer c/o Alice Yim, ASOS Leather Shorts, Modern Vintage Shoes (similar style), Balenciaga City, Karen Walker Sunglasses, J Crew Necklace, Lydell NYC Chain Bracelet.
This past Friday, I had the pleasure of visiting the Alice Yim showroom where I picked out this white silk blazer. I instantly fell in love with how delicate it was and knew I wanted to pair it with a texture that was the complete opposite, so leather was the natural choice for me.
***
On another note, last night Keith & I saw “Midnight in Paris,” the new Woody Allen flick, and we both really enjoyed it! Has anyone seen any great movies lately that they would recommend (in movies or on Netflix)?

    I love how you have the different tones of white and the blazer looks great paired with the leather shorts. You definitely have me thinking I should get a pair for the fall.

    The only movie I've seen lately that I really enjoyed was Bridesmaids.

    Thank you guys! And thanks for the movie recommendation.

    As far as the watch, it's Tudor – lower version of Rolex. I "borrowed" (dont want to give it back:p) from my dad. He got it in the late 80's but I know they still a similar version.

  • BrooklynBlonde

    **they still HAVE a similar version.
