wang tang

September 23, 2009





Dress: Rebecca Taylor, Shoes: Baker’s, Belt: H&M, Headband: Forever 21, Cardigan: Zara

When Alexander Wang’s SS10 show was available on style.com…I cozied up with a latte, blanket and my laptop..and was ready to experience the Wang. As a regular Alexander Wang cheerleader, I was yearning for new looks and pieces that were sure to move me.

I was moved alright. The first few looks caused me to go ‘wtf’.Then I was swooning over the next few looks. Two models later and my eyebrows were raised again. Basically, it was a rollarcoaster of emotions. Some good, some bad.

The only thing that was a constant was the braid. Ohh the braid.

My braid clearly does not measure up to say.. Lily Donaldson’s but this was taken post work.

Braids are in my distant future..that’s forsure. And I guess if I leave it all day and take it out…kinky/wavy hair from the 90’s is also in my future.

    Why did I giggle when I read “and I was ready to experience the Wang”?
    Braids have been in my past,present and future…they are just too beautiful and I love the loosness and flow of yours.

    Well your braid still looks good and although you think it to be messy, I think it looks good this way. It doesn’t have to be perfect! About the ensemble..LOVE IT! Your second picture where I can see the details of the outfit is great! Your dress is so chic with that cool design! The belt obviously only adds bonus points to the ensemble! The cardigan was a must-put-on. I love the pictures and by the way..your really beautiful!

    i love the bread! i have too many layers, so braiding my own hair gets a little messy sometimes.

    love the belt/tights/cardigan combo. can never go wrong with that! it’s one of my favorite looks as well.

    You look lovely. I’ve been rocking that side braid for a few months now. Still waiting for my hair to be a little longer. Love it on you!
