MY KIND OF THREESOME

October 18, 2011

f21 magenta chiffon tank, vintage skirt via joellenlove
t-strap deena and ozzy wedges, thrifted belt, borrowed deux lux bucket bag

I was gushing when I received an invite to see the Sachin + Babi Fall 2011 collection in person, which I RSVP'd immediately, glad to rid my usually routine of making oogly googly eyes over their photos on the internet. I rushed on over to Iniam and was pleasantly surprised to see Lulu Chang of Luluandyourmom chilling over by the counter, just chatting away. Let me just state the obvious: girl. is. SMOKIN'. God, she is adorable. She has the ease that seems so natural. Why must I be so naturally awkward? After cleaning up my drool, I had the immense pleasure of talking to Babi, half of the husband and wife designing duo, who is undeniably the sweetest and funniest designer I have ever met, mind you she is also the only designer I have ever met as well. We laughed, we joked, she complimented me on my shoes, I feel deeper in love.

Nonetheless, I died when I was lead over to the racks of gorgeous fall wear. With my fall-ophelia in full bloom I wanted everything I saw; from the chic chiffon button ups to the glittery skirts to the textured trench coats. If only I could afford such luxuries but, alas, groceries still prove to be a challenge for me. I love the line's aesthetically simple yet eye-catching look that combines chiffon, leather and wool so effortlessly, cohesively and collectively. A little sexy, a little dangerous, a lot of smoldering, sounds like my favorite kind of threesome, no? This is what I would envision as the absolute perfect fall wardrobe, easy chic that never goes out of style. New Yorkers just know how to get it right.

Onto my outfit, I am a full-fledged chiffon addict! I love the lightweight material, the sheer, slightly vixen texture, and the versatility it offers. I love it as shirts, as tanks, as skirts, as maxis, ohhhh I can never get enough of chiffon. I am ready to give this great trend of bright neon colors a huge bear hug as it adds an unexpected element of surprise, like BAM! OH HELLO! I feel like it's exactly what fall needs, a spoonful of sugar to deflect the fading sunshine. I know I get a little happier, a little chirpier every time I catch a colorful glance of my reflection. The vintage skirt makes me feel a little Chanel, and honestly, who doesn't love a little Coco? A bit print crazy but still demure enough to balance well with the explosion of color up top. And, of course, the bucket bag that I want to call my own. I figured if I wear it enough, my roommate will naturally forget that it belongs to her and associate it with me and, thus, I have a new addition to my collection. Think it'll work? Eh, it's worth a shot.
