vogue + field hockey.




jacket. h & m. shirt. woolies. shorts. vintage. shoes. h & m. bag. club monaco.

field hockey + vogue. Random. very much so.
Went to the medical students field hockey game last night (BF is the coach). Always fun watching athletic men run around. Always.

So this shirt. It has appeared again, but has a very funny story that goes along with it, which suddenly sprung to my memory as I gleefully slipped it on. I honestly can't believe I forgot.

anyways...

This plaid shirt was what I was wearing when I met the Editor-at-large of VOGUE. YUP. Andre Leon Talley himself. We weren't informed that he was coming into the studio until THAT morning and I OF COURSE had my flannel, plaid shirt on. I happened to be the first one to see him and he came in saying: "HI, I'm Andre"! My thoughts: ummmmmmm of course you are! OH MY GOSH I look like a dork!
He was so insanely friendly, ferociously tall and was carrying a strange duffel bag whilst wearing a fabulous grey suit?
Both a surreal and "what was I thinking wearing plaid" moment. Something that will stay with me forever...and ever.

I love wearing clothes that bring sweet memories along. And this certainly was one for you, in spite of the awkwardness of the "no one told me you were coming today. I would have looked better!" moment. Love it with the shorts!

that is SO COOL that you met him! i think that plaid shirt looks awesome on you, so he was probably like, "wow, she's stylish! let's put her in vogue!"

Ashleigh said...

I like random.....=) ..this is great (and like the shorts/tights combo ;)

Richel said...

you have no idea how insanely jealous you have just made me! tracy reese is an amazing designer! And you're within her personal graces. Are you guys on a first name basis? Even last name? either would be so cool
Wow, I cant stop these questions.

ashleigh: thanks love! random it was.

richel: You are too cute! She is not only a amazing designer, but a WONDERFUL person. I saw her everyday and she was so kind to everyone. I even did a fitting for her one day--she is so talented. She treats her interns SOOOO well. At the company BBQ she also made me climb a tree and we all plaid "red-rover" She is like a big kid...

ella: I am sure everyone was like who is that crazy girl wearing leather + plaid ;)
