boys on film

with spring around the corner and an array of trends to decipher for women, i'm turning to the boys for inspiration. it seems like lately i'm finding menswear style and fashion to be more and more compelling. i work next door to a really terrific men's shop and periodically
i can be seen drooling over the merchandise at jackstraw filaments.
beautiful assortment and great found objects as well. what is essentially so great to me about good menswear is that it can easily be translated into good womenswear.

note:the cheeks match the shirt

this is a great example of how you can take a person's style and tailor it to your own. for example, i wouldn't wear this complete outfit stitch-for-stitch, but i would take a bold print and color and pair it with knee socks and clog boots.
