Grey Gardens

September 13, 2010

With non-stop rain all day, I finally came to the full realization that summer is indeed over. Instead of sulking about it, I thought I’d celebrate the actual need now for cold-weather wear by revamping one of my favourite summer outfits: the belted scarf look! This scarf is made out of pretty heavy-duty material, so layered under a leather jacket and worn with a hat, it’s basically a sweater substitute.

I friggiiiiin’ love my new hat…I found it in the men’s section of H&M and immediately started obsessing over it (probably because it’s a bit Françoise Hardy-esque, and anything I could see on her, I need for myself). Since the friend I was with is the nicest person in the world, she got it for me as a thank-you gift for shopping with her. Not a bad trade-off at all! Love you long time N.

Wearing: twenty8twelve leather jacket, silence & noise purple velvet dress,
vintage scarf, h&m hat, vintage belt, marc by marc jacobs bag, aldo shoes

    I LOVE this look. In fact I adore the belted scarf look so much that I copied you last time ha!

    I love the colours and texture of your scarf. It looks incredible under the leather jacket and with your bag and hat which is definitely worth obsessing over.

    I'm totally OK with the weather dropping if it means that hat season can begin and you certainly wear it well. One of my all-time favorite looks from you!! xx

    This looks really good. The scarf makes you look very mid-90s Kenzo (which is a compliment!)
