too cool for school

Saturday, on the crosstown bus,  I caught a sliver of this great look:

Comme Des Garcons Play stripe t shirt,
(I glimpsed the signature red heart),

multi hued striped knit cardi,

jeans and chunky leather belt ...

not shown here,  orange Crocs

and a wonderful green and white cotton rope market bag...

lots of color, texture, wit and style...

destination:  unknown...

...A little tribute to my L.A. friends and their kids' fashionable feet!

Natives are so cool, and in army green?  what can I say ?
I used to collect red shoes, bonus if there was a heart on the toe or insole!

Happy Friday! Happy Feet!

a zebra, a bird, and a bunch of stripes....

I am puttering around my home office this evening trying to discard a few papers.

I saved the 9.25 issue of WWD with Milan highlights because I cannot part with this zebra skirt ensemble and have returned to look at the photo several times when I need to smile.

I finally had the chance tonight to explore more about the designer and learned that Italian Haitian Stella Jean presented in Milan courtesy of Georgio Armani and his initiative to promote emerging talent.

What amazing and fearless combinations of colors and patterns in the most beautifully tailored of pieces. What powerful jewelry statements, too!

I don't know about you but I am transported far far away just looking!

To read and learn more about Stella Jean and her signature use of 'wax and stripes' designs based on West African prints, as well as her approach to mixing other multicultural patterns and motifs, go to:

Check out her runway show on  The music alone is worth a visit to the website...

Take me to Spring 2014!
