Tassel Talker

The bag: The Tassel Bag

Why I love it: I immediately fell in love with this bag because of it’s 70s influence with the saddle shape and tassel detail. #avintagevice Need I say more?

The outfit: Playing into that 70s vibe (my dad did wear a white tux on his wedding day) and adding a touch of Parisian influence, I decided to rock an all white suit. In easy lightweight cotton and linens, this suited look is one that is elevated but doesn’t leave me feeling stuffy. Stylist tip: By keeping the look neutral from head to toe, you elongate yourself (no matter how tall or short you really are) and let the tassels do the talking.

The location: We shot this look in my all time favorite neighborhood: the West Village. You haven’t been to New York until you’ve been to here. The ambience, the people, the stores, the cafes. My first summer interning in NY I spent 3 hours wandering in the WV with no map and it was maybe the best 3 hours of my life. And just about any outfit is perfect in the WV as long as it feels like you.

If I could sum this look up in three words I’d say: 70s, fresh, relaxed.
