Shine Bright Like a (Pink) Diamond


Street style, especially NY street style, is such a great source of inspiration! Take this look, for example. I was in SoHo the other day when I saw this incredibly chic (European, I assumed) woman wearing an oversized silver jacket. I never thought that I would find anything like it in the US, until I came across this very similar style at Nordstrom.


The jacket is definitely an eye-catching statement piece. It can be dressed up (with an otherwise all black outfit, for example) or down, as it is here with distressed jeans like these from H&M. For this look I kept rest of the details on the classic side, like this simple grey cashmere turtleneck and lady-like pink accessories like this clutch and these shoes (similar here and here) to match the pink faux shearling on the jacket.


My fashion inspiration wore her silver jacket with baggy jeans, flat booties, and retro cat-eye glasses – a super edgy, quirky look that fit her perfectly. I could never pull that exact look off, but that’s the point.    Fashion inspirations, like any other inspiration, should be appropriated and personalized, but never copied (even if they are reeeeeeallly good). Do you, but try to do it well.

Cold weather, longer than expected walks, going from casual to formal situations without time for a major wardrobe change, etc. But isn’t that just like life? You’ve gotta’ be able to roll with the punches. Continue reading
