The Look: Lower East Side + Bookworm

Fun Fact: Lately, I have been really into mixing earthy tones, patterns and leather with pops of neon. I think this H&M plastic yellow bag is fab cause it's from the Fashion Against Aids Collection for H&M. I always have the heaviest bag and this bag makes me minimize all my stuff because it's see through!  Pin It Now!

oh oh oh what a perfect combination! you look like a very hot praline! the brown colors are divine (never thought that brown could be that gorgeous, have to try that). the pants are phenomenal and i want them so so much, they are like pure perfection. i am looking for the perfect leather jacket, and this one is close to perfection. but what i love the most is the bag, not a huge fan of the bags, but if you wear it like you wear it, uber stylish and beyond phenomenal

I love the turban. As a fellow blonde, I often get scared of the mustard color, but it looks great on you!

Jessica Hagy said...

Ah! I dig it all! But if I have to focus on one thing all I have to say is holy hot pants.

Tough cool nerd.


The brown under hair looks really great. I guess you took the earthy tones into the hair too ;)
