Throwback Style Inspiration…..Sixties Style Icon-Jean Shrimpton

Who is on your fashion radar this spring? Some people always have their favorite style icons & others get inspired by the trends & have new icons each season….and as the sunshine begins to replace the snow & the winter season goes, it’s time to get inspired for Spring Summer 2017! Usually I’m always inspired by those who are a little offbeat & bold, but right now I’m so loving all the retro floral prints & pretty dresses that were on the SS17 runways, as well as all the feminine chiffons, ruffles upon ruffles, crisp cotton tops & of course the color PINK. This brings to mind the retro-modern days of the swinging sixties where women got into music, art & the “mod pop fashion scene” of London.

 

This season, I’m inspired by Jean Shrimpton in the 1960’s. 

 

Jean Shrimpton is an English model and actress. She was considered “The Face of the 60’s” & was one of the first supermodels! She had an amazing, memorable & truly timeless style that still resonates today….I love her feminine yet modern look.

The Look- Retro. Modern. Feminine

get inspired…

Pink in the City

PINK FAUX FUR IN THE CITY

pink-coat_side-view_rock-paper-sequins

In case you’re following me on INSTAGRAM – then you know how crazy I am about faux fur COATS. Also super into the color PINK lately….. Walking around NYC in the winter definitely calls for bundling up in cozy layers before you hit the streets for some new adventures. Here I am wearing my current NYC uniform of ripped jeans, suede booties, new fringe trim handbag & a faux fur coat layered over a ruffled sweater.

XO,

Zoe

Dark Florals & Sunny Days

Happy November!

This is that crazy time of year where every day the weather seems completely different and you never know what to wear until that morning when you see how the weather actually is on that day and not what your weather app was predicting the night before…

I had actually planned on wearing my cozy faux fur coats this past weekend but we had an unexpected heat wave which was actually so nice and reminded me of California days…
I’ve been loving Dark Floral Prints paired with denim, boots and leather this season….Also still cannot get enough of off the shoulder tops and flared sleeves for fall, so it was fun to wear this new top I found from Nasty Gal. It’s so pretty and I love how the print looks with jeans & gold accessories. It would also look great with a skirt and over the knee boots.

I wore this ruffly Nasty Gal top with my ripped J Brand jeans, black Dolce Vita boots, favorite Marisa Mason & Calleen Cordero jewelry that’s always on repeat & Prada sunglasses.

It was a beautiful & sunny day & I’m really trying to enjoy all of these last days of good weather before the cold sets in here in NYC….

CHEETAH DRESS & FAUX FUR JACKET IN BROOKLYN

img_6558new

Fall is here! It’s been such a long time since I’ve been on the East Coast during the fall season & I’m so excited about all the pretty leaves changing color & the cooler temperatures here in NYC. I’ve also really been loving the latest new wave/ rock n’ roll/ 80’s MTV inspired collections from Marc Jacobs & Isabel Marant, so when I  found this dress on one of my recent vintage shopping adventures I was really excited because it reminded me of these emerging trends. I’ve always been a leopard & cheetah print kinda girl, but I really liked how this dress has bright pops of color in blue and purple to contrast with black.

Even though it’s fall I still like a bit of color to brighten things up. I like to style my unique vintage and thrift shop finds with whatever I’m currently wearing that’s new or on repeat.

I wore this vintage dress with my favorite faux fur jacket. I found this cozy jacket last year from Nasty Gal, but you can find similar ones here & here. I added my new black Sam Edelman suede boots, favorite pink suede Monserat de Luca fringe bag, Prada sunglasses, Topshop velvet choker & Calleen Cordero leather bracelets.

I always love wearing simple boots with dresses and also like the feeling of throwing on a furry & cozy jacket to give the outfit a bit of texture and edge. This is a fun & playful look that will take you from day into night….
