Mixin'IT Up WITH BlackwatcH PlaiD AT SFW

During #SeoulFashionWeek I like to play with bold accessories and prints. At my very first SFW, I introduced myself in looks authentic to me like Ralph Lauren Blackwatch plaid...

Since I was a kid, I've always loved the posh, edgy and preppy look of Blackwatch plaid. My first intro to the print was through #RalphLauren at my hometown's Marshall's while out shopping with my Dad. We would always play a game affectionately called "How Much Is This?," when he tested my memory and compared prices of similar items we'd seen at a nearby department store that we'd gone to earlier. (sidebar: I think this is also when I began to incorporate boys clothing into my wardrobe) As homage, I created my fit with an RL #Blackwatch button-down as the base and mixed it with similar, printed vintage pieces I sourced at Goodwill and other unexpected places. My first show was Ordinary People where masculine silhouettes and textures were the themes. In conclusion, I was on-trend!


“Being from the south, I am skilled at the art of high-low style because growing up there was lack of major brands usually found in bigger cities and online. I had to learn early to be creative and self-expressive with my looks.”

The print has a hint of black in it, so I decided to pair my "Big Boys"size #RalphLauren top with a #Blackwatch blazer and brooch I scored at #Goodwill, #kilt I found at #fleamarket, #vintage high-top #Adidas wrestling sneakers, silver #Fulani earrings, and #PhillipLim #Pashli tote. To give the look a pop of color, I wore Lady Danger lip color by #Mac.
