Channeling the San Francisco Gap headquarter vibes, I was inspired to do something simple and menswear inspired. When I was last in New York City I saw a woman in jeans that were oversized but fit her oh so perfectly, an oxford, and a blazer. I'm sure her shoes were off the charts as well, but I was so distracted by her blazing red hair and her presence that they are not coming to mind. I had to stop her and profess my adoration for her style and her friends joyously said, "She's the designer of these jeans!"
I still think about this woman and many others at Coterie who inspired me to try new styles and be daring. I couldn't get enough of every woman I walked by, I wanted to emulate them all! So this is my tribute to the mysterious redhead sporting a menswear look. Though it does not even compare to what she rocked, I'm glad I stepped out of my comfort zone for this outfit, which happened to be the most comfortable thing I've worn in a long time!
