Paris & Plaid

Today Brittyn had an award ceremony at her school for Honor Roll. I wanted to bring out a piece in my closet that I hadn’t worn in awhile and I chose my plaid high waisted shorts. I thrifted these shorts last year and love the classic look to them.

I wanted to give them more of a dark look and pair my shorts with my ‘PARIS’ top that I wore on thanksgiving. Since the top of the waistline is covered by the top, I ended up pulling off a rocker tomboy look.

Kanye 12-12-12 Controversy: Kilt or Skirt?

Yesterday, Kanye performed at the 12-12-12 Sandy Relief Concert and had social media in a fury with his fashion choice for the night. Kanye wore a Pyrex Vision sweatshirt and Givenchy mens’ leather kilt and leather pants. Kanye’s fashion combo seemed to have to have all of America puzzled as to if it was truly a kilt or if he borrowed a piece from Kim Kardashian’s closet.

Now with any ounce of fashion common sense, you would already know that he does have a kilt on. Like I previously stated, the kilt/leather pants combo is from the Givenchy Fall 2012 menswear collection. In my opinion, in 2012 kilts for men shouldn’t even be a controversial conversation. They have cultural origins and have become a mens fashion essential to show off your fashion sense.

REAL MEN WEAR KILTS!

Fashion Inspiration: Virgil Abloh

Virgil Abloh is a business owner, fashion connoisseur, and fashion advisor to Kanye West. He has also become my new fashion inspiration, because of his drive and fashion knowledge.

Virgil’s original focus was architecture, which is why he went to the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He majored in stuctural engineering. Which is helpful in his Chicago based boutique, RSVP Gallery. Which sells clothing, home decor, and art. Virgil is also the leader of the party curcuit, Been Trill. On top advising Kanye on all that Givenchy & Balenciaga he wears. It’s safe to say Virgil is a busy man.
