Taken From the Boys

In New York, all the boys are sporting amazingly slim cut trousers and little brogues. Ummm, hot?! It’s totally one of those looks that girls can pull off too. I love a little ankle as well, and so when I found these trousers at the recent Alexander Wang sample sale, I went GAGA. They have a higher waist and are very straight down, cutting off perfectly just above the ankle. I’m obsessed with this boyish look! It’s casual yet still looks professional and SO PERFECT for the warm days in the city. To spice up my look and of course add a bit of femininity to it, I carried my new favorite piece, this Emily Cho leather handbag. Made in Italy, it’s super soft and has an amazing, edgy structure. I recently met up with the designers of this label… and on the subway! They recognized me through mutual friends and OMG they are two of the sweetest girls I’ve ever met. I just know this collection, which is already available at Saks, is going to skyrocket. Yet again, another new NYC designer that I’m in love with! I see myself even sporting this bag a totally different way…possibly to a fancy event or something! But it totally worked with my boy friendly ensemble! To give my androgynous look a little girly touch, I swiped on a bright, matte lip color. Although I’m pretty sure Estée Lauder’s “Red Velvet” lipstick was made for me, I’m also now wearing their “Fuschia Velvet” shade. Never do I leave the house without one of these two Velvet Collection shades in my handbag!

    Your shoes are lovely with those trousers! Nice combination. I like the kind of ‘boyish-girl’ style that’s I’ve seen cropping up more often also, I think it can ironically look very feminine!

    The trousers and shoes suit you so well, and its nice that you take inspiration from men’s street wear. Sometimes I more envious of how men dress than women. Gorgeous clutch too.

    I read from Dylana’s blog about the Alexander Wang’s sample sale you two went to and that you’ve found these pair of trousers. Glad you’re showing this look because I was hoping to see what they look like! Oh, and that clutch is just love!

    One of my favorite outfits from you. I have to get those pants. I am going to get a lot of looks at school since I go to a tiny high school. I can hear it now, “Why are you wearing mens suit pants to school?” -_- Sorry, I’m ranting now.
