Hey, gidday mates! What a week it’s been. I flew back in from Europe on Tuesday night, deejayed with Ms. Jenny Albright till 3am the next night/morning, worked the next couple of days, then picked up a car and drove Upstate for a sunny weekend away. I packed this exact outfit so we could shoot it while we were there, but it rained the entire time, so it had to wait till I arrived back into the city yesterday. As you know, I love a white and blue combo outfit, and these PF Flyers are such a solid dark blue that I figured I could get away with wearing this cornflower blue suede jacket with the white jeans (I wouldn’t try it without that dark shoe foundation though, it’d be too much light on light). If you’re not a fan of the white jeans, these shoes will also look great with stonewash denim or khaki pants, and a simple white T-shirt/patterned short sleeve shirt like the one I’m wearing here. Too easy!Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! I’m excited to announce that I’m partnering with Superga on a series of posts this summer showcasing The People’s Shoes of Italy in a variety of looks. If you’ve been reading this bloggy wog for any length of time you might have noticed my predilection for canvas sneakers, but my sneaker colour palette typically runs the gamut from blue to white — with nothing in-between — so for my first effort I wanted to stretch myself a bit and try something new. Enter Superga’s Cotu Classic in Cerise (deep red) — the perfect pop of colour with an all-white-everything ensemble. Not bad, right?Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! I went to the J.Crew store on 5th Ave a couple of days ago to check out a panel discussion with some of New York’s leading young designers (Prabal Gurung, Joseph Altuzarra, Tabitha Simmons and the Public School boys included), and while I was there, I spotted a mannequin dressed in a blue blazer, pale blue oxford shirt and white jeans, and was like, ‘That’s my next outfit.’ It’s easy to forget just how good the classic menswear staples look, and how sharp a navy jacket looks paired with an oxford shirt, white jeans and a brown belt. Sometimes you’ve just gotta get back to basics. Check out the shoes too — they’re by To Boot New York, and they’re that perfect mix of suede and sneaker; not quite a chukka but not quite a designer hightop. Killer.Click to Continue!
