Hey guys! Welcome to another What I Wore This Week post, where I feature an outfit I wore during the week, the occasion and how I styled it.
These past two weeks have been HECTIC which is why I haven’t posted a WIWTW post for a while. I got to go to Paris for a top-secret interview and ended up sight-seeing, spending time with my blogger friend Charly City Blog and met a group of dancers a.k.a the coolest kids in Paris (Garde Robe article coming soon!) This week’s outfit is entirely based on my new favorite t-shirt by DONO featuring Sidney Lafrontiere (co-founder of Garde Robe & my sweetheart) !
DONO is a new French brand name that sells limited edition t-shirts. They basically pay tribute to celebrities (athletes, musicians, etc) with rare or unique names. A bunch of American rappers like Keith Murray and Curtis Young (Dr. Dre’s son himself!) have worn their own t-shirts by DONO. When Sidney and I received ours, I was ecstatic:
Event/Occasion: Streetwear Photoshoot
Lipstick (mine obviously): “Diva” a.k.a the BEST LIPSTICK EVER by MAC
Anyone who knows me knows that Kendrick Lamar is not only my hip-hop bae, he is also just the best rapper I’ve ever listened to in my life. So DONO sent me a Kendrick (Compton) t-shirt in black. Sidney likes soccer (we call it “football” in the land of the French), so he received an Eljero Elia t-shirt in white. Who’s Eljero? He’s a Dutch football player who plays for Southampton (thanks Wikipedia, I don’t do sports).
Sidney decided to wear a navy blue bomber jacket from Galeries Lafayette to add an athletic edge to his crispy white t-shirt. On top of his Eljero shirt from DONO, he wore a black pair of jeans from Bershka and a pair of classy New Look combat boots.
I decided to go for a street look because Kendrick inspired me to pretend I’m from Compton. (I’m totally not, when I saw NWA: Straight Outta Compton, I couldn’t stop crying.) I wore this black bomber jacket from Galeries Lafayette over my black Kendrick Lamar (bae)’s t-shirt from DONO. I decided to wear my black jeans from New Look that I ripped myself (Mommy don’t roll your eyes at me) and a pair of simple white tennis shoes from Pull & Bear. To finish off the street look, I tied a plain grey sweater from H&M around my waist.
