What The Chic is She Wearing? Werk With What You Got

Right now, EVERYONE who’s everyone is wearing this coveted Gucci logo tee. From Bloggers on Instagram to fashion influencers at Fashion Weeks around the world, this little tee is getting it’s shine. Anyone would be tempted to add this top to their wardrobe, but priced at $420, this piece is way above my budget! So off to my closet I go…remembering that I purchased a similar tee from Obey like 5 years prior, and could recreate the Gucci tee look accurately. I paired the tee with a faux leather skirt, platform sneakers and threw a fur sleeved coat over for a little added drama. Grabbed my chain detailed bag for a designer element and kept on moving.

It’s not about splurging all the time, but about using what you got.

What The Chic Is She Wearing? Dockside

Everyone is SO obsessed with the off-shoulder trend, and it’s classic and super cute but I needed a bit of a change – enter the one shoulder.  I like the modern, asymmetric feel of the one shoulder, and the menswear-inspired, classic look of this top. I paired the top with a pair of striped wide leg pants for a funkier, monochrome look. To add some detail, I threw on some reflective sunglasses, smeared on some orange matte lip gloss and fringe sandals. 
I’m feeling dockside chic.

What The Chic Is She Wearing? Layers + 90’s Nostalgia

I’m huge on layers and Spring is somewhat of a last hurrah to pile clothing on top of clothing. Slip dresses are totally on-trend  right now, whether you’re giving Kate Moss vibes in a sexy maxi slip dress, or a Courtney Love grunge vibe with a leather jacket, and your boyf’s flannel. I decided to go the layering route and pair my slip dress with a graphic tee underneath, a bomber, wide brim hat and some chunky sandals. It was an experimental look, but I liked how it turned out and it definitely gave me some serious 90’s nostalgia vibes. 
My leather choker is totally helping the 90’s nostalgia cause.

Chic Crave: The H&M x Balmain Rundown

I’m sure you’ve all heard about H&M’s latest collab with Balmain. 

And if you haven’t – where the hell have you been?! Get it together. 
H&M just released a list of how to shop the collection (clued in about this from my friend Mikey who is LIT-ERALLY *Rachel Zoe voice* obsessed with this whole movement and checks the H&M website and Instagram daily.) 
This is pretty smart, considering all the madness behind the Alexander Wang’s collab last fall. 
So what’s the official H&M 411?
1. There is a restriction on how many items you can purchase per piece. Online shoppers can buy one piece per product (Example: one jacket, one size) In-store shoppers will be able to purchase two pieces per product. 
2.  If you’re about the in-store shopping life, you must be one of the first 420 shoppers in line to gain access to the store. The 420 people will be split into 14 groups of 30 and receive a colored bracelet  with 15 minutes to shop the collection. Other customers without a wristband will be able to shop the after the last group shops the collection. 
3. The collection will be available in select stores and online at 8 AM on November 5th. 
4. Returns will only be accepted until November 8th. 
4. (INSIDER TIP) As an employee from H&M stated, the stores will not be getting access to all the merchandise. Select pieces will be available in store.
