RETRO LUXE

People have a tendency to assume that anyone who consistently puts an effort into their appearance doesn't afford themselves the opportunity to relax. I passionately disagree, and this outfit is physical evidence. It IS possible to wear an ensemble as elaborate and eye-catching as it is comfortable. Exhibit A: slouchy pants. Y'all need to invest in a pair of these. It's hardly even an investment! I tried on a pair of $450 sweatpants at Chanel a couple weeks ago but (duh) couldn't justify the price; these cotton slacks are twice as comfortable at least 90% cheaper. No need to break the bank for loungewear. Exhibit B: loafers. Isn't this one obvious?? Not every day is a heel day! Nor does it have to be. A pair of glossy flats like these from Pink and Pepper will practically massage your soles in comparison to the pinch of a pointed-toe stiletto. And they look JUST as sophisticated. Give yourself a little wiggle room in the wardrobe department. Literally.



FROM TOP TO BOTTOM:

Bowler hat - ROMWE
Sunglasses - 80s Purple
Gold chain mini necklace - VANESSA MOONEY
Large black and gold chain - Chanel
Striped blazer - YES STYLE
Pants - YES STYLE
Loafers - PINK & PEPPER
Bag - Miu Miu

These photos are a bit grainy because they were the first set I took with my *complicated* new SLR camera. I'm STILL trying to figure out the best manual setting for the lighting conditions in my room. Looks like my ISO was a bit too high in these photos... you sneaky light meter, you! It's kinda cool doe, gives it an old-timey, film feel. ANEH WEH, this outfit was inspired by silhouettes of the 1980s and an early 1990s urban attitude. I’ve got my sharp shoulder pads for avant dimension and gold chains for a classic hip hop element. Combine it with red lipstick and a bowler hat and you’ve got retro leisure swathed in vintage luxury! Gettin’ comfy with it. 

I'm at MAGIC today, so if you're in Vegas for the tradeshow, shoot me a tweet and we can arrange a meet-up! Look for a lady in orange, red, faux fur, and the best pair of Irregular Choice heels you've ever seen.

Everything is infinite,

Bebe Zeva

  2. It really does remind me of the 80s: the shape of the pants, the jacket, even the necklace... it's very classy :)

  9. I agree with everything you said above about appearance. Also gets on my nerves: assumptions that I take a lot longer to get ready than I genuinely do. It doesn't take me four hours!

    Lovely blazer!
