The Electric Camel Drum ~ J Brand City Year

j brand city jeans-leopard blouse-army green jacket-black heels and bag, fashion blog, hair

What I’m Wearing
* J Brand City Year skinny leg in apache ~ courtesy of J Brand ~ Besides their luxe denim and their amazing fit {and they’re LA based}, what I love about J Brand is their continued support and collaboration with different charities. 100% of net proceeds from these styles will benefit the efforts of City Year, a program which tutors and mentors kids to help them stay in school and set and reach goals. J Brand’s goal is to sell 1000 jeans to help City Year.

* Army green Eddie Bauer jacket… found at a thrift store in perfect condition.
* Leyendecker tassel belt worn around the collar as a scarf {to tie in the black shoes}
* Vintage leopard print blouse… man I wear this a LOT!
* House of Harlow necklace worn around the collar
* Jean-Michel Cazabat black suede pumps from a GILT sale
* Jigsaw London woven leather bag

* Hair: I finally got it done! And she chopped off almost 4 inches!

* Title: lyrics from The Clash – Rock The Casbah

I was at the gallery late last Friday night at an event for a new Sam Francis Catalogue Raisonné release so I didn’t get a chance to photograph my outfit in the elements. While occasionally I like the switch-up, I so prefer outdoor/natural daylight to indoor/night photos. They’re just so much better, but life gets in the way of blogging every now and again and I just have to make due.

at the gallery

* love my Lichtenstein name tag though. Part of my job description : “make cute, art name tags for events”

Well if I have to be here (at the art gallery event all night) at least I have my tearfully sad (but awesome) Lichtenstein name tag (ps I made it)

In other event and book news: I’ve been invited to a star-studded Louboutin book release & signing tonight at Barneys NY {in LA} and I don’t think I’m going to make it… boo. I did however, just receive my pre-ordered copy in the mail and it is AMAZING!

    I love that the jacket you picked is oversized – I find it a tough look to pull off on myself, but you really rock it! Also, that bag is delicious.
