the meltdown.

 who goes to the rooftop at high noon?
me.
i do.
for you.
for the love of blog, i tell ya. 
it was so hot...
my makeup was running and my shoes warped.
i mean, i was literally. melting.
in the last two pictures, i seriously walked in the door, stripped off my jacket, and dropped down on the ground
in front of the air conditioner to cool off.

i've expressed my love for armani exchange
many times, like here and here.
this silk jumpsuit is just another example
of why i keep going back.
it's simple, but edgy.
i've already worn it and photographed it a few times, but just can't seem to capture the oomph-worthy details of this
black on black jumpsuit.

(jumpsuit, armani exchange; jacket, american rag; shoes, nine west)


shop the marketplace.

  1. The roof pics turned out great, but you have to be CAREFUL! Don't melt for our sake, Beks! I love the green bracelet, it's my favorite part... it's teasing me-- it is such an attention hog!

  25. Not many ppl can pull of a jumpsuit - but you rock it, girl!

  26. I don't even think I can properly comment on the amaze-balls-ness of this entire outfit. I love it all. That jumpsuit looks perfect to wear anywhere. That jacket is effing fierce. Those shoes are killer. Your hair has that perfect windblown look that I am SO jealous of.

    Why are you so damn awesome?

    P.S. It might be balls-ass hot on that roof, but at least you look gorgeous. The price we pay for fashion -- and a good photo op.

  34. I love how the pants are capri and tapered and harem style like. I bought a guess lik jumpsuit but don't think the legs are like this. I will have to pull them up to create the effect. I like the peep toe animal print heels underneath.
    Looks great.

  44. The jumpsuit IS oomph-worthy and looks great on you. You are brave to wear it with the jacket but props to you since it does add interest to the outfit. The heat where I live is also unforgiving. Global warming is a bitch.
