Why Did You Wear That: Stop Traffic

kirsten smith nycOkay, let’s be serious, I’ve never been accused of being the type of beauty who could stop traffic, but it was fun to pretend.  And sometimes, a pair of fabulous shoes and leather shorts are all it really takes to get the brakes pumping.   I love the contrast of pairing rocker like leather shorts with a clean tailored white blouse.  The contradictions continue with the styling of hair in a tousled top knot and strapping on studded sandals.  You may not stop traffic, per se, but you’re sure to turn a few heads.

Why Did You Wear That: Urban Art

los angeles graffiti artA couple of weekends ago while down in LA we went on a hunt for some of the remaining graffiti covered walls.  I don’t mean like your random spraypaint tag.  I wanted big colorful murals reminiscent of Paula Abdul’s Opposites Attract (um, hello MC Skat!).  Much of Los Angeles’ “donated” artwork has been cleaned up by the city, but there is a little spot in Hollywood that is so boldly decorated, that you really can’t miss it.

For an afternoon adventure, I put on a pair of my (current) favorite skinny cropped 7′s, a sheer T-shirt and a pair of oxfords- which, to me, are the alternative to an ultra classic and somewhat girly ballet flat.  I accessorized with my gold go to jewelry and was comfortable all day.  Just another example that art is all around us… so long as you’re looking.
