I’m sure you all have that one friend… Who’s wardrobe is just so enviable that you would absolutely love to go shopping in it. Or just swap your entire wardrobe with theirs.. For me that friend is native New Yorker Stephanie Lawrence now living in LA. And the best part is that I actually DID get to go on a spree in her amazing wardrobe to pick some items to wear for this rooftop shoot in LA a few months ago! Thank you for your generosity Steph! I love you!
Steph’s got crazy taste. She combines the wildest things and always ends up looking superb and I really admire how she does it because I’m just not capable of the same trick! Somehow she tends to mix up a lot of the amazing stand-out pieces her wardrobe has to offer into one single look and she always turns out looking fabulous!
For the LA shoot I picked this amazing red silk Japanese gown combined with some Maroccan slippers and a vintage Louis Vuitton backpack. The jeans and white top I am wearing on the other hand are staple pieces from my own wardrobe which I wear basically all the time!
For the entire time I was in LA I really felt like wearing long light overthrows like this red silk one. It just seems to be the perfect item to wear in order to look stylish, not be naked, be protected from the sun and yet not be too hot. Overthrows people! Best summer piece! They are great companions for the beach but they are also chic enough for a pool party!
For the finishing touch, I added a pair of Sunday Somewhere sunnies to my look and voila!
