Celebrity stylist Eric Burns has been dishing out high end looks for industry movers and shakers presenting looks that implanted themselves as the norm for high-end fashion and streetwear. One of our favorite looks style by EBurns for the month of March included a shoot with model Tatiana Elizabeth Price. Her look featured our Rude Gal a crop top from the Outlaw Collection inspired by the rebel herself Rihanna. To highlight the crop top, Tatiana sported a black leather style skirt and rectangular white sunglasses, which currently are dominating the scene for eyewear.
