Perched on Sleek

February 27, 2012

The background setting reminded me of a bird cage/bird fountain so that inspired the title. Anyway, I am back to my fitted clothing that I will forever love. Who doesn’t want to wear clothing that fits them perfectly?

The inspiration behind the look was to feel super sleek and clean. A black and white outfit, fitted to my body, with an air of buttoned-up casual could easily project the sense of sleek.

There are two pieces that stand out the most in my look–my tie and shoes.

What I love about the tie is that it is covered in a polka dotted lace. You’ll see in the photos below that it isn’t a plain black tie. The lace subtly adds a unique flare to a tie that could have been overlooked.

I am in the love with my new sneakers. My sister wanted me to take her to the Vans store. Unbeknownst to me, I would spot these darling kicks. The leather stripe with a fine herringbone textile give a sophisticated look to a classic skater shoe.
