white start


This picture of talented stylist and friend (and my former intern!) Samantha Traina inspires me to sub in an unexpected pair of loose-fitting white pants for my perennially-stylish crisp white jeans. Sam thoughtfully counterbalances these slouchy trousers with sexy lace-up sandals and a tailored blazer for a completey polished but still relaxed look. Here are a few white pants to try from Phillip Lim, A.L.C., and Vince.

I love the top & pants color combo

My problem with white pants has always been the see-through factor. I hate when you can see the pockets (or worse) through the fabric...

Great sandals! Does anyone know who makes them?

Did anyone find out where the sandals are from ... I keep checking back but didn't see a response....

I think the sandals are by Alaia, but I am checking with Sammie Traina, pictured. Will let you know as soon as I hear back...

Sam reports that her sandals are vintage Alaia.

Wow ~ I love reading your blog. Today when I came across this post I couldn't believe it! I went to summer Camp with Sammie in Carmel. Such a small world. Hope she is doing well!
