Style Roulette || Blue Friday

Welcome to the inaugural edition of Style Roulette!
One item, two distinct styles.
For our first selection, a pair of Harvey Faircloth lace shorts. Styled by myself, and Lani of Mon Petit Chou Chou, my good friend and frequent partner in Brimfield and New York Fashion Week hijinks. While we’ve been fast friends since the day we met, and our personal styles do have a few convergence points, I’ve always appreciated Lani’s bold approach to fashion. While I tend to the more classic and relaxed, Lani loves vibrant contrast and drama — as you’ll notice from our very first round of Roulette!

I envisioned this as a sort of off-duty uniform for long rambles about the city. The kind of late summer afternoon hours that easily slip into evening without you even noticing. As is my wont, I wanted to relax the lace — surprisingly, meditation didn’t work — and thought an easy silk shirt and slip-ons would do the trick. I’m also completely obsessed with all the Mougin & Picard watches for J.Crew, but this Grande Seconde is my absolute favorite.
What’s probably most interesting to note is that while Lani and I refrained from peeking at each other’s selections until we were finished, we both somehow paired the lace with leopard. Odd coincidence or next big thing? I’ll let you be the judge…
