Striped Top – Abercrombie & Fitch / Pants – Uniqlo / Black Heels – Vince Camuto / Sunglasses – Marc Jacobs
Summer in South Bay is just the best! This must be one of my favorite parts about living in the Bay Area. I just went on a shopping trip with my friend Kelly the other day and while we were both seeking things with color, I ended up taking the black and white route. I know what you’re thinking. What are you doing buying a top from Abercrombie & Fitch? I went into the store the other day because I had seen a dress on Jamie Chung from there that looked incred. After trying it on and realizing that bell sleeves were never going to work for me, I let that dream go. I did, however, still wanted to peruse since I was there anyways. This striped top with a criss-cross back was $10. What a steal! I remember when I was in middle school and was saving up my allowance to buy a $65 skirt from them. The brand, I’ve heard, has actually been making moves in a more positive direction. I’m not sure if it could ever replace the way I feel about Aritzia, but I’m willing to give them a shot.
