The story behind this photo is simple.

I loved this awesome top from Zara so much, I wanted to show it to you. That said, I think it’s the kind of piece that’s hard to figure out. Just on it’s own, with it’s embroidered fake leather, it’s just…. uhhh… how should I put this?

So, I thought the ideal thing to do here would be to do a little style session with one of my friends. I took my top to Andi and we played around with some of her clothes and here’s the look we liked the most.

It’s exactly what I’m looking for right now. It’s very of the moment, yet can be worn every day. Easy, comfortable, cool – it’s right up my alley.

Voilà !!! What do you think? Does this make you want to wear embroidered fake leather or what?


PS : The top is, of course, from Zara (in stores right now!) and the shirt is from J. Crew (which is from a different season, but hey, it’s easy enough to find a striped shirt). The pants are Stella McCartney and the shoes are Church’s, where else? ;-)

PPS : Andi is a very good friend and she is also the owner of my hair salon in New York City, Three Square Studio.
