PLUM UNIFORM

Is it just me, or do most people hate the idea of being freakishly matchy-matchy? I feel like as soon as I notice that two garments are the exact same color, I MUST pair them in an outfit because they're 'spiritually meant to be.' It's fate that they're an identical shade! Twins! Separated at birth!! Though I guess in this outfit, I'm dealing with a much larger litter. Plum hat, plum turtleneck, purple skirt, burgundy heels. I quite look like a bottle of wine. Many thanks to American Apparel for sending me this beloved turtleneck crop top... how'd they know it's my favorite of their signature designs?? I picked up a black one over the winter and it's my most practical staple to date. Also love that it bares my midriff because it FORCES me to care about staying in shape. Secret: sometimes I buy crop tops to motivate myself into doing more sit-ups and crunches. Yup, I want abs.











FROM TOP TO BOTTOM:
Floppy hat - Forever 21
Sweater - Borrowed from my sis!
Turtleneck - American Apparel (sponsored)
Skirt - Vintage
Wedges - Nine West x Karen Elson
Bag - Etro

The bag isn't a perfect purple match, but the fringe seemed fitting! It's free spirited. Plum, burgundy, and maroon are definitely fall colors, but I don't want to limit my spring palette to pastels and floral. I love baby pink and robin's egg blue and the ubiquitous mint green... but I love switching things up so much more. Duh. I'm Bebe Zeva.


Everything is infinite,

  5. It's not just you! Lately, I've been really into matching the hell out of all my clothes, whether it be through their print or shade. I normally wouldn't have considered doing this before, but I feel that my style has evolved in a more experimental and diverse sense. Matching clothes is awesome because, like you said, a lot of people are freaked out by the idea of it...like it's fashion faux pas or something. I say what the hell, I think I'll go buy that vintage twinset anyhow.

  20. I really love the way you mix and match your wardrobe (you are a fashion inspiration to me and my friends), but somehow your lips always distract me. They're perfectly formed lips, don't get me wrong, I just find the pout really overpowering.
