Real Life Styling [Stacey Kimel]

I spotted this picture of one of my favorite clients — Stacey Kimel — and wanted to share it with you. It was shot by Tommy Ton of Jak & Jil fame, who always seems to be able to nail a shot. (don't you love the guy in front of her who looks like he is gallantly fending off traffic for her??)

I love the pop of red against the mint green and the simplicity of her hair — this is a great picture to use as a future styling inspiration. It was taken during Fashion Week and a lot of the get ups you see during that week are so out there that you could not emulate them if you tried, nor would most girls want to. The dress Stacey is wearing is not vintage but it could easily be substituted with a great eighties piece that has that same vibe making this is a look you could do with ease. One great dress + a red shoe & clutch + sunnies and you are out the door looking fine!
One day I will catch a shot (or got get one) of Stacey wearing some of her vintage. She is actually an avid collector and has an archive of important pieces. She has purchased several couture Dior's from me as well as many other very rare vintage frocks. Perhaps a future blog post will have to be arranged... ...
