Boutique Critique:: The Reformation NYC: Look 4
Apr 21, 2011 - by Jessica Lapidos
Yael Aflalo and her business partner Chi Bui have not only filled their stores with reworked vintage, but other stores as well. They sell their one of a kind pieces at Saks Fifth Avenue, Nieman Marcus, Intermix and Bluefly (among others) and have created lines for Urban Outfitters: Reformed and Nom de Plume YaYa. Now, enjoy another look straight from their Lower East Side location: The Reformation NYC.
Look Four: Layered and Lace
The Long Lace Skirt: $205
I chose this skirt because it has to be layered, and the lace is insatiable. It's perfectly narrow at the waist with a zipper, and it flares so naturally at the bottom. Spinning takes great effect in this.
The Nether Layer Ivory Skirt: $145
I went white underneath so that the lace can come alive in contrast. It's shorter than the lace skirt, so there's a cloud of mystery by the ankles. The elastic at the waistband makes this piece ultra versatile and the silk makes it super soft.
The Crop Tank Back-Lace: $125
From the front, it is proportioned just right for this skirt, curving up to the top of the hips. The back is made of white lace, covering sheer from nape to waist.
The Plucked Heart Necklace: Pamela Love, $380
She's the drummer in a band and inspired by everything from medicine to Hieronymus Bosch. She's making mighty jewelry, rustic, weighty and evocative.
