MODELMANIA:


What's fashion 
without its models?










Gisele Bundchen, Heidi Klum, Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss. Anyone familiar with the fashion world can, without a doubt, attribute these names to four amazing models of their era. Of course, these four women are only a few of the many influential bodies that moved with great force and prestige during fashion weeks (and let's not forget those editorials either). Some of my personal favorites from both the 90's supermodel era and the more recent pool of runway must-haves include: Devon Aoki, Beverly Peele, Gemma Ward, Kelly Mittendorf, Christy Turlington, Malaika Firth, Daphne Groeneveld, and honestly the list can go on and on...

But lets get into the outfit shall we?

I paired this awesome supermodel tank with my new floral "kimono" (still not sure about the use of the word kimono, but we'll go with it for now). Since the fall weather is slowly approaching--emphasis on the slow--I decided to bring on the jeans and wore this distressed black pair I recently bought on sale at Cotton On. I accessorized a bit with an amethyst necklace, gold hoops, and heeled sandals to lean out my legs and give me that extra height.

CAPED CRUSADER:


Who portrays Batman the best: Michael Keaton, 
Christian Bale, (soon to be Ben Affleck), or me?







If you ever asked me who my favorite superhero was, Batman would hands down be my first and only choice. Not only is he exceptionally skilled in martial arts, he is also a witty, cunning and willing to make meets end through any way necessary. But let's not make this about how awesome Batman is and let's get into the outfit...

I would have to say the main star of this ensemble is the beautiful shawl that was gifted to me on my recent birthday by two of my favorite people. It's the perfect length and the deep blue color complements the rest of the outfit. The pattern and slits near the bottom of the shawl add perfect accents to the overall piece. Plus, I can run around and this outwear instantly doubles as a cape...hence, the title of this particular blog post. 

I completed the look with my thrifted overalls (worn in THIS post) and since it was blazing hot--I actually got sunburned that day--I kept it simple with a grey cami and my new BCBG studded sandals. To make this look more unique, I put my hair up into two buns and added a couple accessories like my 90's choker, tribal earrings, and Casio watch. 

I am so excited to mix and match this amazing shawl with other items in my wardrobe! How would you style this and what is one piece in your closet you've been lovin' this summer? Let me know in the comments below~
