Whoever said rules were meant to be broken must have known me.
This look is proof (to my crazy ass) that you CAN wear white after labor day, dye your hair purple after 30 and rock a kimono without anyone yelling some ‘cultural appropriation’ bullshit at you.
We live in a crazy world where everyone is on high alert and ready to attack the moment you don’t fit in with normal expectations! I mean – Let me live my life! I adore this look and frankly, that is all that matters, right?
The purple hair come c/o of the team over at Matrix and the AMAZING Elements Hair Studio in Brooklyn. The team hooked me up with purple roots and a stunning silver rinse – perfect for fashion week and perfect for me. I can’t remember the last time I had normal hair.
The white after labor day rule is done. I didn’t even think twice about pairing this white dress with the white boots for this look. And for the record, I think white shoes are going to be a big trend this season – so much so I created a Pinterest board about it.
Now let’s chat about the kimono. I have been wearing this bad boy nonstop since I snagged it from ASOS and I am not mad about it. I can not tell you a number of compliments I have received since I started wearing it. It was literally a showstopper at fashion week and I can not wait to continue to style it into fall.
So, there ya have it –
