Listen up everyone, do not try this at home. Standing in the middle of traffic on an extremely busy Brooklyn intersection makes for a GREAT photo but.. it has it’s dangers. For example: I was at least violently honked at 5 times. Also, when the train moved below me, my skirt flew up (a la Marylin) and almost caused a four way collision. Luckily though, no one was harmed during the shooting of this outfit.
Now onto the main attraction, the clothes!
This vintage Armani skirt is such a special piece I almost didn’t think I could pull it off (what I mean by pulling it off is doing it justice as a piece I could wear during the day, considering it is COVERED in sequins!). Initially I dismissed it convincing myself the length would be a little grandma on me also. But I was VERY wrong and I can admit that when I need to. Paired with this graphic and colorful tank (Forever 21) and a motorcycle jacket (Zara), the skirt was taken from grandma land to bad ass in no time. You say, what about the shoes? Yes! But of course! They are Zara too, and perfect with this look because they are playful, not too fussy but elevate the outfit with their multicolor striped detail. Loving my black sleek vintage clutch?

And as far as the sunglasses go, they are H&M.. I know I know, I’m so good at making them not look H&M.. thanks!
