Boutique Critique:: Court: Look 2

This Court room is a treasure trove of layers. Especially with the majority of pieces being shades of black and white, the garments are merchandised to live with one another, complementing and interchanging. I clothe myself by the philosophy of layering, so to have selected a dress, a single solitary layer of clothing for Look Two, you know this dress must be super fascinating.

Boutique Critique:: Court: Look 1

Boutique Critique was taken to Court. I can’t get into the specifics of the arrest, but I will fiercely deny any allegations that it involved Rebecca Black and a finely sharpened object last Friday… Well, the trial ensues upon the lacquered black floor of the Court room, with a film noir NY color palette and western-leaning-California vibes; highly suspect if you ask me. Reimagined t-shirts of many weights and structures intersperse silken black dresses, leathers, sweaters and the occasional floor length chiffon. Though the case appeared to be rather black and white, shades of gray and few jumping hues peeked through as evidence of the brighter buying choices. The jury has been out for the whole week, and they want more proof. Over the course of this week, come sit in on the trial, and help us reach a final verdict.
