A few months back while I was still in NYC, the owner of Convent Shop in the LES asked a few blogger friends and I to come in and put together some of our favorite spring looks from the store. I love shopping there because there is a SMALL chance somebody will ever be seen wearing the same pieces as you around the city. Most of the brands are exclusive to Convent and almost all but a few are Scandinavian designers from overseas.
(For spring I've been really interested in mixing masculine and feminine pieces for a neutral and balanced look that has the great aspects of both. Hence all the really soft silhouettes against the hard collar choker in every look.)
Here's a peek into the 4 looks I put together:
Look 1: No Face sunglasses, Xinnatex cut out dress, Jean Phillip black/asphalt silk shorts, and my vintage spiked collar + Cole Haan oxfords
Look 2: Prim blueberry ponte blazer, Prim lemon ava tunic, Laura Faulk leggings, and my vintage spiked collar + jewelry
Look 3: Xinnatex futuristic jacket + mesh asymmetric shirt, The Twentyten textured jeans, UO silver hightops
Look 4: Howl mesh cutout hooded tunic, R/H mickey leggings, and vintage spiked collar + Cole Haan oxfords

In other news, i'm packing for LA. Headed to the west coast for the month of June. Stopping in quite a few places and can't wait to see all my old friends and hike in Malibu. Leaving friday! Stay tuned!
