Look Who's Wearing Pants...

Pants: f21- $19.80

This is quite possibly the most fantastic creation of the season. They have a streamlined and chic fit and pull together just about any outfit. Yet they feel like leggings and are comfortable enough to crawl into a giant couch pretzel style and get intense amounts of work done! Leggings with the look of pants! I haven't the slightest idea why it has not been thought of before (leather and liquid pants DO. NOT. COUNT. ) Cardigan? Check. Leotard? Check. Best Pants Ever? Double Check.

This is Just Wierd...

Shoes- Target, Leggings-aerie, Dress- Ross, Belt- Goodwill, Necklace-Delia's, Bracelets- Tibetan Peace Bracelets

No, not the outfit. It's one of my favorites actually. What's weird is how you can have a dress for years and nobody will notice it until the random random day when you wear it out of season. Almost everyone I talked to today complemented this dress even though I had worn it several times before. One of my friends said it was because everyone seems to favor the color gray this winter and thus a bright color really catches their attention. I suppose, but shouldn't bright colors always catch your attention? I'm not complaining, just surprised.

Back from the Dead

Hello All,

First I must apologize for the absurdly long, unannounced hiatus. It will not happen again (at least until I stop blogging.) Bonnie Klyde is back full throttle and will be doing all kinds of exciting new things! (Think outfit posts, new fashion icons, and a weekly inspiration piece!) I hope you enjoy it! Leave Comments, I will respond!

Peace, Love, and your lover's leather bomber,
Bonnie Klyde

Homecoming a.k.a. Let Me at that Pool

I want to go home and get in my pool

Clockwise from top left: Shay Todd Handkerchief cutout swimsuit-$230, Zimmermann cutout neck bikini-$240, Topshop Satchel-$100, Hudson Gabby Cuffed Skinny Jeans-$198, Shay Todd Contrast Two Piece Bikini-$210, Current/Elliot Boyfriend Short-$187, Piperlime Sandals-$109

Right about now I am on a Maryland Highway ready to get home and spend the next week or two in my swimsuit and spending every waking moment with friends, family and especially my friend J.J. who will be coming in from Jersey for a program at UArts. I can't wait! Oooh I can just taste the water ice...
Anywho, I put together this little spread of some summer morning staples that go very nicely with my backyard and possibly the inside of a water fountain. The ruffles are...try and flamenco. Plus the Shay Todd bikini top would make a great halfshirt. I'd wear it with the Hudson Skinny Jeans which have a 27 1/2 inch inseam so they don't awkwardly puddle at your ankles. they would also be paired with flat shoes in a very Hepburn-esque way. I picked a very violet and blue color scheme because it's not too abrasive and reminds me of every soft summer night I spent running out of the woods with my face painted with squashed firefly. This, is a true midsummer night's dream.

Model Chic: Kamila Filipcikova

Models are often noted for their fresh faced beauty and ability to put personality to a designer's outfit. What many do not know however, is their unique approach to style off the catwalk. Models usually have to be minimalistic with their wardrobes to keep the attention on their bodies and showcase their natural beauty. However they always manage to have fun within these rules! Kamila Filipcikova has fantastic style. It's put together on a basic level with two well-respected standbys: the linen shirt, denim short, and large bag. Yet it has intricacies and quirks that add personality, like ruffles, bows, a fedora, and suede boots. I recreated the look here in a more late-summer friendly way with cutout flats which are an adorable summer alternative to sandals.
