Hi there! 

Continuing the vintage band tee trend (I love how versatile a great rock and roll band tee can be) we recently photographed another t-shirt from the TaschNYC vintage repurposed tee collection. This one was a Janis Joplin tee with custom heart cutout and studded detail in the back. All the tees have been custom redesigned in some way which I really love. I styled this with my Old Navy high-waisted Bell bottom jeans (a recent sale score!) and my Topshop teal faux fur jacket. I finished the look with my new Sam Edelman teal velvet platform sandals and my YSL medium Kate bag. I felt right out of the 70s with this look; a little boho rock and roll vibe!

I also worked with TaschNYC in the past with some of their gorgeous dressy looks including a beaded purple dress I had a blast shooting in and walking the runway in. They have some fun casual wear as well as formal ladies clothing!
