Winter Printed Pant

This post is dedicated to the winter printed pant.  Laura, who has been one of my best friends for 13 years is also a buyer for Macy’ and was kind enough to contribute to GofG.  I also conducted a brief interview with Laura who is immersed in fashion, style, fabrics and glamour all day everyday.  Please enjoy the printed pant, as interpreted, modeled and styled by Laura, as well as an interview with someone on the forefront of fashion.

Pants: Rag & Bone (found here), Shirt: Splendid (old, similar found here), Jacket: Vintage, Bag: Marc Jacobs (old, similar found here), Shoes: Prada (old, similar found here)

I am completely obsessed with these pants and love the simple styling – very classic yet edgy

These pants are super fab and also a fun play on the tuxedo pant

1. Tell me about the trend you are representing.

I am representing a take on the “printed” bottom trend.  Going into fall it can be difficult to wear all over printed bottoms, the side detailing on the pants is a great way to transform the printed bottom and make it more fall appropriate

2. Where would you wear this look?

This look is a great transition piece from day to night.  I can wear it in the office with an item jacket and then take the look out at night with a tank top.

3. What are your favorite trends this fall?

I have two favorite trends this fall – boots and item jackets, I can’t get enough of either!

4. What do you look for when buying a product for

Specialness and saleability.  I want product that is unique yet saleable to a wide variety of customers at a great price.

5. What is your go to article of clothing at the moment?

My Plomo fringe boots and the infamous green Zara jacket with leather sleeves.

6. What can’t you leave your house without?

I can’t leave the house without my iphone – I am spotify obsessed and I can’t be far from my music, it’s essential in NYC since you walk most places.

7. Who are your favorite designers?

I am obsessed with Isabelle Marant though I usually can’t afford her clothing.  I am also obsessed with David Neville and Marcus Wainright of Rag and Bone – I would say 90% of the clothing I have purchased this fall has been theirs.

8. What was your latest purchase?

I most recently bought a ring from Fragments in Soho.  It was way over my budget but I just had to have it.  My test for if I really have to have something is if I sleep on it and still want it the next day.

9. What is on your wish list this season?

I am dying for a Celine bag but I doubt that will ever happen.  I also really want a pair of Sergio Rossi pointed toe pumps which may have to get purchased soon 🙂

Welcome to the inaugural edition of GofG’s street style! With my (hopefully) weekly edition of instaglam, I will feature a fabulously clad pedestrian found strutting down the streets of DC.  This week, I stalked Catherine, whose style was absolutely impeccable and caught my eye on my evening commute on the green line.  Catherine was kind enough to let me take a picture of her and she even complimented DC’s style, which says a lot considering she is from NY.  Anyway, enjoy the very first instaglam post and tune in for more fab street style pics.

You can also see my street style pics on my instagram (Garden of Glam), as well as other fun pics of me, my friends and my life.

Sweater: Ralph Lauren, Blouse: H&M, Shorts: H&M, Shoes: Target, Bag: Coach

Layered perfection

It’s hard to tell because it is black on black, but she is rocking shorts with tights.  I absolutely love winter shorts and am obsessed with the shoes!
