A Great View

Christine Petric of The View from 5 Ft 2 style is very much for the city-dwelling set.

3091_BLOG_View-from-5'2_BODYHailing originally from Texas and recent New York transplant by way of Chicago, Christine’s style is finely attuned to the fashion needs of a city: sweet but with a little spice. Christine toughens up her generally feminine aesthetic with punctuations of urban flair like a motorcycle jacket, cutoff shorts and, as in this case, a utility vest; “I have a thing for vests and have found that they’re incredibly versatile for wearing with dresses, casual tops or even rompers,” explains Christine.

Christine styled this particular look for a day at Chicago’s annual Lollapalooza music festival. Set in the city’s lakefront Grant Park, Lollapalooza’s dress code calls for sandals for the grass, breezy separates for the summer sun and layering pieces and ponytails for the fickle lakefront winds. Following this simple recipe for a “Lolla” look, Christine was true to her style form with a look that is utilitarian and trendy, comfortable and pulled together.

Layered underneath her Vince Camuto Four Pocket Vest, Christine’s glittering Vince Camuto Embellished Tank is tempered for the music festival setting. Finished with a boho-chic side braid and her VC Signature Vince Camuto Bamaa Sandals—whose studs add a nice edgy contrast to the tank’s bejeweled collar—and Christine is set for a weekend of hard rock!
