IMG_20180730_183415On a recent visit to LA, I flew on JetSuite X, an airline that flies in and out of small airports in California and Nevada. While hanging at the Burbank Airport – Hangar 2 –  waiting for my flight home, I spotted this girl (pictured).

My first thought was: Is that vintage? (It’s not.) My second thought: Love it with the boots! My third thought: It’s hot as hell right now. I can’t imagine wearing that.

I actually don’t care for the jacket and pants. I’m not a fan of that pale denim color and the silhouette feels a little too 1990s. I also find the repeated Versace logo obnoxious. But what saves it and why I decided to write about it, is the boots. They are unexpected in color and pattern and they don’t really go with the outfit, in an interesting way. Of course boots on a hot July day in LA is absurd, nevertheless the look works and this girl pulls it off. Perhaps this was her “jet set flying outfit.” I can see that.

Turns out she was waiting for a flight to Las Vegas, so ah, no surprise. (Side note – a woman arrived on a flight from Vegas wearing slippers and expensive looking silk pajamas in a bright red floral pattern – no I’m not kidding. She accessorized with layers of attitude. By the way, it was 5PM, not AM.) Yeah, what happens in Vegas should REALLY stay in Vegas!

There’s more. When Versace Girl turned around I saw that the jacket was open and all she was wearing underneath was a white lace bra. Nice and fully covered but, a bra all the same. Retail price at Saks Fifth Avenue for the Versace jacket and pants = $2600.

I have to say there was more fashion interest going on at this JetSuite X hangar than I ever see at the usual large airport terminals.
