Today, I'm wearing... Balmain meets Dries Van Noten















Top: Forever 21
Accessory: Vintage
Skirt: Magaschoni Collection
Shoes: Aldo
Bag: G.H. Bass & Co.,




Today's theme of my style is
"Balmain meet Dries van Noten".

  I'm still obsessed with Dries van Noten 2010 A/W collection.

Combination of an Army green top and a dark color low-raise waist skirt are inspired by DVN.

And then, add some kicks of rock tastes with a beat-up T shirt and Balmainisque shoes by Aldo.

I also like this vintage costume jewelry; it reminds me of Chanel's Greek cross designs. 

It's very warm this week in New York.

I guess that this is the very last chance for us to wear short sleeves.

But I don't mind. I can't wait to wear boots, coats and gloves !

Hi Kika, this is Jessica in Japan! LOVE the outfit...cute! The Cross necklace you have on is actually a Maltese cross...I have Lots of them because me family migrated to the USA from Malta! (My Grandparents moved to the states in the 50's) If you ever have a chance to visit Europe check out the Island of Malta...it is full of Rich history and Maltese is one of the oldest languages in the world (it is Semitic) but most people there can speak english as a second language. It is really beautiful! Thanks so much for sharing so many wonder places to visit with me...we will be sure to check them out! Here is a link to a video about Malta that you may find interesting: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cmuKzs0PSK4&feature=player_embedded
