What I Wore: NYFW SS15 Day 1

If you follow me on Instagram (@madeinchicistan), you already know I wore my new favorite skirt by Lover for my first day of NYFW. Deciding what top to wear was harder than you'd think in the limitless hole of black clothing. The skirt is pretty fancy shmancy so I wanted to keep it casual with a t-shirt and ended up wearing this Helmut Lang (also available here) one with an open back - surprise, surprise. I finished off with my favorite Tabitha Simmons oxfords (similar here and here) that hurt me feet so good and my boy bag. Shop my look below and check me out on Facehunter (!) looking awkward as ever (duh).

And in case you missed it, MIC is now on Facebook (go like our page!!)!

The Rainbow Fish Meets The Little Mermaid

It's hard to say what is going on exactly in Rodarte -- sorry, RADarte's -- latest collection except for that it is freaking fantastic. It's like the rainbow fish met the little mermaid in Chicistan and were playing around in an abandoned sunken ship clad in fishing nets and jagged edges. Anyone else getting those vibes?

And because my favorites merit a closer look..

Most of my favorite looks involved jackets, because well, I really like jackets. But also, varsity-inspired ribbed sleeves with sequins and leather buckles? Only some geniuses could have come up with something that sounds so strange but looks so great.

#WCW: Kelsey Van Mook

Swooning over this shot of Kelsey Van Mook by Annemarieke van Drimmelen. I mean, what's not to obsess over?

I've been really into lacey slip-like skirts with sweaters for fall but this combo takes the cake. It is everything I dream of and more. Knot to be dramatic or anything (hehe), but you know how I feel about low slash open backs... need to find out who this sweater is by. If you know, let a sista know. More on Kelsey and this effortlessly sexy lewk soon -- must go write a million designer bios right nah. Happy hump day!
