Blue Velvet

blue velvet boots-Opening Ceremony
shorts-vintage levi's
athletic mesh tank-vintage
black cover-up-thrifted lingerie (cut the puffy sleeves off)
bag-Alexander Wang

I just couldn't resist when I saw these babies at Opening Ceremony.  The Isabella Rossellini voice singing "Blue Velvet" in my head made me do it. 

So...I was supposed to go to New York fashion week for a styling job with Eric.  Due to a work emergency and because of my slant eyes and native tongue, Eric is shipping me off to China and Tokyo for 3 weeks while he gets to style a show at Lincoln Center. Boooooo!!!
I'll try to update while I'm there but I have to surf bounce illegally...let's hope I don' get thrown in the red corner....

and to set the mood for this post....the best quote from David Lynch's Blue Velvet
RIP Dennis Hopper

  1. I bought the black leather versions of these boots last winter...gosh I wish I hadn't. Now I'm trying to tell myself I don't need these when I know I do!
