After quite a bit of hesitation and some urging from a friend, I decided to go through with this "lookbook" of mine. I'm sorry, but I am awkward in front of a camera. Do you need me to pull out a "terrible moments in Vivian photographic history collage?" In any case, my friend Salvador played forced-photographer to my freaked out fashionista. Since it was summer in the city, less meant more in 90+ degree weather. While the plain white v-neck could play host to a number of different options, I paired it with some color-pop shorts from J. Crew. The scarf added a nice touch of pattern and textural contrast against the solid colors... not to mention it made a super fun turban later in the day when I got bored.

Paired with some nude sandals and gold accessories, I was ready to explore SoHo and the East Side. Let's save that story for another time. A girl's got to get her beauty rest.
In any case, what do you think? What basic thing do you think is necessary in a wardrobe? If you're brave enough, what are some of your own terrible moments? Holla at yo girl.
