OOTD: Embellished Lanvin and Isabel Marant

Lanvin x H&M t-shirt, Isabel Marant skirt, Maison Martin Margiela x H&M heels
A birthday party in Venice was the perfect occasion to break out a fun Lanvin for H&M t-shirt that I don't wear nearly enough. Grosgrain bows, pearls, tulle, rhinestones so very Lanvin.

Welcome to the Jungle: Kenzo Tiger Sweatshirt

Orange Kenzo Tiger Sweatshirt, Current / Elliott denim, K's Raybans
This Kenzo tiger sweatshirt totally reminds me of the embroidered logo sweatshirts that I used to wear as a kid in the 80's. I have a lot of nostalgia associated with Kenzo; it was one of my mom's favorite brands when I was growing up. She reminded me when she saw me wearing the sweatshirt tonight, Kenzo's bright colors and bold patterns were totally her thing back then. I should go digging in her closet for some vintage Kenzo. Love what Carol Lim and Humberto Leon have been doing with Kenzo the last few seasons, great shapes, patterns and materials. Just took a peek at the FW 2013 runway show, beautiful!

Back to the sweatshirt, extra 80's points for the boxy cropped length and screaming colors. Probably my favorite colorway of the Kenzo tiger sweatshirts, love the day-glo salmon orange, turquoise and yellow, and the ginormous tiger embroidery, there's nothing subtle about this sweatshirt at all. Little k likes the tiger, I think she's still too young to be scared by it. After losing out on it online last night while checking out, I bought it at Opening Ceremony on La Cienega this morning, such a great store with awesome staff. Timing was perfect, the sweatshirt hadn't even hit the sales floor yet. I was able to try on a couple of sizes and debated awhile between the small and medium but ultimately went with the medium for the inch or two of extra length. I also tried on the black knit embroidered tiger sweater, but I like the casualness and loose fit of the sweatshirt more (plus it's a lot cheaper). It may be 80 degrees here today, but I don't want to take the sweatshirt off. I also bought the turquoise tiger t-shirt online last night, after missing out on the sweatshirt, but now that I have the sweatshirt, I'll probably return the t-shirt as a little tiger goes a long way...
