There are a few people I admire when it comes to fashion. There are a few people I try to sometimes emulate. One such person is designer Stella Jean. Ever since laying my eyes on her stellar Spring/Summer 2015 Collection in Milan, I have been a fan. I love her effortless style and how she mixing patterns and fabrics from both her Italian and Haitian heritage.

Top/Skirt: H&M | Shoes: L.A.M.B. | Bracelet: And Other Stories | Necklace: Modern Tibet via Union Square Holiday Market
It takes serious effort to be able to pull off opposing fabrics and textures. I’ve tried my hand at it a few times, with my favorite being this pairing of a plaid top and floral skirt and this pairing of a plaid top and a wax print skirt. This is my attempt at pulling off a Stella Jean and I think I did a pretty fantastic job. I feel like strutting through Union Square Market with a bouquet of fresh flowers in one arm and a bottle of Merlot in the other. This skirt is a staple in my wardrobe from H&M that I picked up at the Jeff Koons x H&M flagship opening event. Hopefully one day, I will own a Stella Jean piece!
