424. His & Hers: Lara Speier ("Kind Of Blue")
Lara Speier is someone I've met through the blog well over a year ago, snapping her on three different occasions (exhibit A). One of the first things you'll quickly observe about her style is her penchant for all things menswear. It is easily more prominent than most girls I know. So much to the point that right after agreeing to join in on this project, she told me she "is always up for dressing like a half man". Not typical for someone who works in advertising and certainly not as extreme of a statement if you're as attractive as this native New Yorker is.
Fortunately, she didn't have to search far to mold her unique personal style. Lara credits her vintage friendly Mother for taking bold sartorial risks, much to her chagrin at the time, such as wearing an army green suede hooded jumpsuit to Parent/Teacher conference one year. It wasn't until a few years ago that she had a change of heart and began embracing these lessons Mom subconsciously taught the younger Lara. Mom's wardrobe started to find it's way into the closet of her style hungry daughter shortly after.
As for the self explanatory title of the post, it was pretty awesome to have her dressed up in three different shades of blue that wasn't soft tones (I promise you me coordinating her blues was a total coincidence. It's uniform these days).
Follow Lara on Tumblr and she also likes to tweet tweet from time to time.
