I teamed up with photographer Ben Kulo (click) for this amazing shoot.
I've been a huge fan of Shrimps since I was in high school. For their Fall/Winter 15 collection they showcased a pvc trench coat with a bright yellow fur collar and I thought to myself "I NEED TO GET MY HANDS ON ONE!" When I found this trench coat at a thrift store for $15, I immediately thought of this DIY project! I attached my orange fur collar from Boohoo and wallahhh-- my own version of Shrimps' beautiful trench coat.
After being at home for most of the week, my mom and I decided to head out into the cold weather and grab a very well needed hot coffee. Although we've barley had snow in NYC, I am already over it and looking forward to Spring. I must admit though, there's something very peaceful and beautiful about a snowstorm as absurd as that sounds.
You all know how much I love mixing prints and monochromatic dressing. As easy as it may look, monochromatic dressing does require some thought so that you don't look boring. Unless you are wearing a co-ord in which both pieces are the same shade-- try to play with textures. For example, I decided to wear this knit turtle neck with satin pants.
I decided to wear my silver sneakers because, well, I love the mix of color and also comfort has been super important to me lately.
