Risky Business


I’ve long professed my love of a certain American Apparel men’s button-down, an item of clothing that my pal Stevie Dance sees me in pretty much every time we get together, so imagine my delight when she offered me a smorgasbord of options to play with for an impromptu dress-up session that she just posted on Shopghost (Shop with Emily Weiss!) today. It’s the perfect article of clothing for a Shop With, because it’s my favorite thing to shop for: unlike a t-shirt or a sweater, a good neutral-colored button-down (Acne and Equipment have you covered) makes you instantly look more pulled-together, and, much like a pair of jeans, the right chambray shirt (T by Alexander Wang, Marc by Marc Jacobs) and a pair of pointy black suede pumps gives ‘casual’ new meaning. Cuffed sleeves, messy hair (half a can o’ Dry Texturizing Spray), dewy skin... Pants and tube socks optional.

    Hot stuff, Emily! What though, is the shirt you're wearing in the first few photos? Those neutral stripes and that lightweight texture have me totally intrigued...

    Hi, Emily, what is the brand/cut of the black ankle-length jeans you're wearing in the final photo? They fit great -- I need to know!

    Love this, you look beyond gorgeous. You are so toned, can you one day write about your fitness routine? Is that too personal?
