Very Vuitton

Top, Whitney Koos.  Shorts, F21.  Clutch, ASOS.  Tights, Urban Outfitters.  Shoes, Target.

 As regular readers know, I am obsessed with rummaging through the racks of Wasteland, the best designer consignment shop in LA.  A few weeks ago I found this amazing Whitney Koos shirt and loved the retro 60s feel of it.  Unfortunately, I found a lot of other great pieces that day and left this top behind.  Imagine my surprise when the Louis Vuitton SS13 show came out the next day and featured this exact checkerboard print!

I knew I had made a mistake in passing up this graphic print but thought I had to suck it up and deal.  Wrong!  This top was waiting patiently in the racks for me, begging to be bought.  I finally made the purchase yesterday and I am SO excited about it.

Taking inspiration from the way Marc Jacobs showed the print at Louis Vuitton, I kept the look a bit 60s and a bit sexy. 

A BumpIt and a yellow bow in my hair were a nod to the styling of the show as well as the actual runway- I love yellow and black together!  The vintage-looking car clutch I found on super-sale at ASOS.com was an easy choice- it matched the racing-flag feel of my shirt- while leather shorts kept the outfit modern.

My new "tattoo" tights from Urban Outfitters brought a bad-ass touch.  Throughout the day I constantly was asked about my tiger tattoo!  These tights let me have all of the street cred without the commitment- I'm going to be wearing them ALL the time!!

I'll be rocking this outfit tonight at my BFFs birthday party!  She has a blog too- annikadotbenitz.com- and her constant posts have inspired me to start blogging again, so thank Annika for new Hell or High Fashion posts!
