"What Rosie the Riveter would wear to a picnic" was my concept behind this outfit. First came the makeup though, the retro winged eye and red lip, and then the outfit flowed from there (Although her lip color looks closer to Spring '14 color-of-the-moment: orange. Which means Rosie was about SEVEN DECADES ahead of the trends guys!).
The real star of this weekend look, however, are the cork sneakers. When the weather finally took a turn for the better I realized all my flats were destroyed and my clunky winter boots were just not going to do it in the NY humidity. Expect to see me pairing them with everything from boyfriend jeans to mini-dresses and all that's in-between. Cork just has this gorgeous lightweight look that I think is perfect for spring and summer.
