This past Thursday, I went to the La Petite Marmoset (LPM) Lookbook Party in conjunction with The President Wears Prada, Spicy Candy DC, and A Lacey Perspective at Violet Boutique in Adams Morgan.
It was a pretty sweet deal. The lookbook and video are absolutely phenomenal (You Have to Take A Look) and LPM owner/designer, Katherine Martinez is simply a fantastic talent! Her pieces are reconstructed into the cutest things. For instance, one of her specialties is making "ugly sweaters" into cute mini skirts! Just take a look below.
sweater: Mums old piece from Bebe
leather pants: vintage
ball of a bag: thrifted
Oh and btw, this is my first time in life wearing leather pants. *having a moment*
I've had these bad boys for about two years now, and I just got around to wearing them. It's not like I have an endless supply of clothing in my closet either. Really, there's no excuse.
I'm just weird like that...
Katherine of LPM
All of Katherine's pieces can be found at Violet Boutique.
In fact, Violet Boutique has a great selection of contemporary women's clothing too - all from the west coast (LA). I was really impressed to find such great quality pieces in the store. Plus, store owner, Julie, is such a sweetheart! Loved her! Oh, and the price points are definitely affordable! Be sure to stop by!
How cute are these skirts by LPM??
And these tops with the cut-out sleeves are lovely. UGH! They'd look great paired with skinny jeans/pants and stilettos, especially since the front is shorter than the back!
