Stylings of the Gong Inspired #OOTD

Myself, pictured here in downtown LA wearing all Buttons & Bows fresh gear!

Hey guys happy Friday! We hope everyone has had a fabulous work week. We are definitely looking forward to a fantastic weekend coming up of unwinding & hanging with friends!

 Today on Buttons & Bows, I want to show off some of the store's current designer pieces that I personally had my eye on. I went in on Monday to take some pictures and pulled two outfits that were inspired by some iconic images of the Gong!

 Summer Blues

Denim on Denim Look 1
Jean Jacket: Vintage Levis unisex Jacket, $30.00
Yellow Top: Helmut Lang, $68.00
Blue Jeans: Frame Denim Jeans, $89.00
Necklace: Haati Chai Gold Pendant Necklace, $72.00
Bracelets: Buttons and Bows Bangles,$14
Belt- Coach Leather Belt, $32.00
Shoes: Mui Mui Cork Platforms, $199

 One of our favorite signature Bob Marley looks is the denim on denim look, usually seen with his perfectly slouched beanie. A true denim aficionado, you can say it was one of his staple uniforms for him. For my outfit I chose these sexy Mui Mui cork platforms, wood jewelry, a bright yellow Helmut Lang top inspired by the rich hues of Jamaica, and of course a vintage Levis jean jacket with skinny jeans by Frame Denim. Simple, not flamboyant, but with a statement just like the Gong.

 Vintage Military Chic

Military Inspired Look 2 
Jacket: Vintage Military Army Shirt/Jacket, $45.00
 Tank Top: Erin Kleinberg Black White Netted Top, $32.00
 Shorts: Chloe Sevigny Black Leather Trim Short Shorts, $65.00
 Hat: Proenza Schouler cap, $40.00
 Scarf: Vintage Salvatore Ferragamo Silk Printed Scarf, $69.00
Bracelets: Char Ant Bolt Bracelet, $120.00
Char Ant Deca Bangles, $40.00
Shoes: Phillip Lim Cheetah Print Espadrilles, $175.00

 For this look we were going for am old school military look. I found a perfect vintage military shirt in the men section at Buttons & Bows and paired it with a pair of Chloe Sevigny leather trimmed olive-toned shorts and a black netted tank top from Erin Kleinberg for an earthy feel. What we love about Bob Marley's style,  is that it was simple and effortless. To take a khaki military shirt and make it rock 'n' roll, is just one of the looks that Bob Marley made his own and oh so iconic!
