Music to my earsFriday, February 8 2013
It’s not everyday that beanies get to walk the runway. Yet, yesterday at BCBG Max Azria, the main message was slouchy headgear – to be worn inside and out (not to be confused with inside-out). Did you get that? Sing along with me now, cuz you can leave your hat on (see what I done there, uh uh): it works with your fluffy coat, both faux (see above) and real (though your fur will be wanting an update next fall – do you know where I can buy blue dye?), your lazer-cut leather bits, and even your slinky evening gown. Music to my ears, given that my own cashmere friend has become the answer to most of my day-to-day problems. Bad hair day? Slap a beanie on it. Shit weather? Get under that beanie. Forehead pimple? Tug that beanie a little lower. Pink eye? Ok, I took it too far – you get the picture, tough. So with Azria’s lux, urban silhouettes in mind and Tom Jones singing in the background, let’s turn back to the present, to my own look du jour if you will. City yeti is my name for it, but I could have gone with urban fluff ball, and am open to suggestions. The comment box is wide open. Show me what you got.
GET THE LOOK: The fluffy coat (or here), high-boots and mini skirt are all Zara. The sheer shirt is equipment, the bag is Givenchy, the watch is Michael Kors, the slouchy beanie COS and the rings H&M. Lipstick is YSL’s rouge pur n°21, sadly discontinued.
