When Briley and I were shooting these photos, she told me I looked like the leader of a girl gang from the movie The Warriors. I'd never seen this movie, but I had just spent the entire previous day binge-watching my new favorite show Orphan Black which is kind of about a girl gang, if a bunch of clones count as a girl gang. Well, one of those clones gang girls had a Ukranian accent, so I decided that I should too, and I spoke in an exclusively Ukranian accent as the leader of a girl gang for the whole shoot. I'm a lot of fun to work with.

This outfit is one of those that came together because I only had 28 and needed two more. "What else can I put together that doesn't look awful," she asked herself (in a Ukranian accent, of course). Chambray, black pants, booties? Sure....! Since those pieces aren't the most exciting, I relied on accessories and cool hair to do the trick. Vintage earrings from my mama, my chainmail and pearl collar, and my rock bobbies took the look from basic to ballin'.


  1. I'd say this is classic looking, not boring. You look great.

  2. Looks pretty put together to me! Those pants are perfection.

  3. I LOVE the look of black pants with a chambray shirt. It's one of my tried and true combos that I go to frequently when I can't decide what to wear to work. The beauty of it is that it looks fantastic when accessorized in a million ways!! :)
