As I’ve gotten older (and grown into my own skin and sense of self) I find there are fewer things I actually need, and that just a few key pieces- with incredible yet subtle design elements- make for some of the best wardrobe staples to carry me effortlessly through seasons and styles. I was lucky enough to collaborate with Kelly Framel fromTheGlamourai.com on an editorial shoot a couple of weeks ago. Kelly brought that artistic simplicity in front of the lens of the talented Scott Brasher who captured this modern minimalism that rings true as part of my personal style. We pulled pieces from NYC-based designers leading the way in style and sustainability. You can check out the full editorial on Kelly’s site, and shop the shoot below.
1. CLAW & AQUA NECKLACE, by Natalie Frigo, $195. A handmade gem made in New York City from reclaimed brass and ethically sourced stones. A long pendulum necklace like this is an absolute must-have for completing an outfit with long lines.
2. OVERSIZED T-SHIRT, Suzanne Rae, $330 (similar to the one from the shoot). Proudly made in the Garment District of NYC from natural fibers. Fashion this piece as a top, dress or stylish layer.
3. CARRINGTON LOAFERS, Cri de Coeur x Arden Wohl, $320. An easy slip-on shoe with designer details like the watchful ‘evil eye’ at the back plus the ombre lucite heel. 100% vegan and fashion forward!
4.ELONGATED RECTANGLES, by Natalie Frigo, $210. Lovingly made in NYC from reclaimed brass and Idaho garnets. Statement earrings that grab your attention in all the right ways.
