Fashion: Zippers

I’ve always liked the vintage sewing machines in the Allsaints window displays, but never thought their store was for me.  On a whim, I decided to give it a try.  I’m glad I did-their pieces are edgy, somewhat similar to Helmut Lang, but at lower price points.  I love this sweater-it can be worn zipped up as a cowl neck, twisted and then zipped, or worn open and flowing.

I’ve paired it with a basic tank from Banana Republic and zippered skinny jeans from Madewell (I like the idea of echoing the zippers).  Basic boots, an eggplant clutch, cool sunglasses and a shagreen (stingray) bracelet complete the look.

An interesting note on the bracelet-I bought it only a
week ago (in a Calypso St. Barth store), but when I tried
to find it online, they were sold out.
