H&M Shoot 6: Mad for Plaid

Monday, July 20, 2015

"All my friends know the low rider
The low rider is a little higher
Low rider drives a little slower
Low rider is a real goer"

The Rise of Rock & Roll Grunge - Meets - Chola-Chic - Meets - "Ain't Notin But a G Thang" inspired fashion has emerged on the catwalk (see Rodarte & Givenchy's Spring/Summer Runway looks below), as well as in many high-profile celeb's closets (see Beyonce looking mighty "Flawless" below), who are not necessarily Latina nor gangsta, however, praise the glorified 90's style! I had to hop on that "lowrider" bandwagon real quick ;-) I'm absolutely love.love.loving these faux leather high waisted shorts from H&M! Not only can you dress them up, or keep them casual the way I decided to in this particular shoot, but they're also an amazingly affordable $24.99. Now you know me, I'm a Persian gal, and us Persian ladies LOVE to look expensive ;-) ...and to do so on a budget is that much sweeter! Also, I just can't help but imagine that I have made Jenny from the Block so proud, as I decided to bust out my old school Manolo Tims (which have made a huge comeback btw!), to tie my entire gangsta-90's-street-chic look! Hey now..."Don't be fooled by the rocks that I got" ;-)
