For Halloween I Want to Be Lenny Bruce
All I want to wear this summer is peekaboo crochet and sheer shorts/pants. There's something about crochet that reminds me of growing up in the 90s. There was this one shoot in Seventeen magazine that featured a model with a hat on running around a beach wearing a white crochet Esprit cardigan that has somehow permanently stuck in my psyche like white on rice. I looked for that Esprit cardigan everywhere, dragging my poor mother with me from store to store, but could never find it. And voila! A weakness for crochet was born.
I like this one by Kimberly Ovitz because it's a little witchy, a little wicked. There's something slouchy and bad and subversive about it. The little sheer shorts are Kimberly Taylor, and you can bet I'll be wearing them all summer long.
