No Costco, Shanghai

High-waisted skirt on Fenyang Lu

Hey there! This is Gardenia, guest contributor. I’ve had the pleasure of being asked to give my ever-so-humble opinion on this smartly dressed lady on the streets of Shanghai. She’s got sass, she’s got style. I love the way her outfit is pulled together and screams EARTH TONES. But before you label her as little bohemia (read: flawless flowy hair I wish I had, wood earrings), there’s a little Mad Men to her tooinflatable pool: the high waist skirt, the super cute black wedges with the gold button, etc. And to make things a little more special, her leather jacket (I’m so glad she didn’t go for a black one cause those are waaay overtrended) was purchased at the Forte dei Marmi Street market in Italy! According to these folks, Forte dei Marmi is “the place to go to get cut-price reproductions of expensive designer clothes.” And can you believe “the town of Forte dei Marmi is centered around the market and the marble fortress built in 1788″? If the market was in America, they would have forced the marketers to leave and put up a big Costco or worse, Staples , in the middle of the courtyard by now. Anyway, I think it’s pretty cool that she probably got a great deal and managed to mix it in effortlessly with her H&M pieces. Bravo, girl-with perfect-hairinflatable boats!

The ingredients:

  • Earrings: H&M
  • Leather Jacket: Tommy Rind Leatherwear New York (But bought at Forte dei Marmi Street Market – Italy )
  • Polo shirt: Calamai, Milano – Italy
  • Skirt: H&M
  • Shoes: random

Thanks Gards!  Now go waste your time at her wall of thoughts and inspirations.
