I remember way back in the day when "racing" was just emerging as a trend in fast fashion. Performers, stylists, icons making an appearance, anyone relevant in the process of establishing that they were 'leading' in the race to disseminate a trend, started branding with motifs that suggested competition, sport, and acceleration. Racing checks are one of those printed details. Since 2012, I've been collecting checkered garments -- a Chevrolet brand snapback, a Dupont NASCAR jacket, a sponsored Budweiser coat, a Fox BMX jersey, the list (and race) goes on. The top I'm wearing here is borderline costume -- made of an elastic, lycra/polyester/spandex hybrid -- and looks perfectly fitting for a racetrack with its sporty zipper feature. But it's no costume, and I'm dead serious about thinking it's acceptable to leave the house wearing athletic shorts and heels AFTER Halloween. I glammed up the look to elevate the racing aesthetic from "southern speedway" to "streetwear starlet." Function and fashion don't have to be at odds - they can and do work in tandem. 

Beanie - Gifted
Clubmaster Sunglasses - Zero UV
Rhinestone cuff necklace / Checkered cut-out top - ROMWE
Baseball shorts - American Apparel
Fosana Leather Block Heel sandals - MISSGUIDED

I'm wearing a new pair of clubmaster sunglasses from Zero UV, a necklace and top from Romwe, and reflective silver heels from a UK retailer called Missguided! I've found some of the best staple items in my present wardrobe on Missguided - a leather top and matching sweatpants, a leatherette jacket with Versace printed sleeves, a 90s inspired knit sweater, and plenty of killer heels... can't wait to debut the rest of my collection here. ^_^

Everything is infinite,
