Good Analogy

Rather than buy into one trend from head-to-toe,
like the "preppy" or "punk" movements of decades
past, consumers are appropriating eclectic influences
and remixing them like a DJ does with music. It's now
common to see stylistic mash-ups, like a demure Stella
McCartney floral-print blouse coupled with Alexander
Wang's grimy cutoffs and finished off with a pair of
Balenciaga's erotically charged knee-high gladiator sandals.

Boldly Beautiful

These are good examples of women
using accessories to their advantage.

The accessories can roughen or sweeten
up an outfit.

Snatchin' Cazals

A designer eyewear line that pleases
everyone is unlikely to inspire. Good
design must be thought-provoking.

Don't even act like you haven't day dreamed
of owning a pair of sick frames like these. Well
now is your chance to bring back a piece of history
while upgrading your steez. 8689 Vintage brings

and colors. Find more dope styles at the ebay store.

Hunt-Her Green

In love. I just got these peep toe Ralph Lauren
Mary janes. I can't find an outfit they don't
complete. They are super comfortable at just the
right height. Will especially love to combine with
plums, rust and mustard.
