I’ve always wanted a chair like this. Except mine would be strung from the ceiling. And lucite. I remember reading that Kelly Osbourne collected them or something, which made me very jealous.

Colin and I are working on a..hmm…extracurricular blog project and we need a bunch of questions from you guys to work into it. The answers won’t be posted on here but they will be answered in a way that you will see them of course. Ask away!

PS I’ll take the first ten tweeted to me.

you’re just across the street looks a mile to my feet

Kind of sad how long it’s been since I’ve worn a blazer…this one has been stagnating in my closet for the past year or so and it might have continued to do so if I hadn’t started fishing around for something to smarten up this wispy thing of a dress. The shoes are finally on the verge of being broken in and are pretty much my current obsession even if boys hate them. Socal boys also hate massive cardigans, hoof-like boots, and big feathery clutches so their credibility is shot.

Soo happy my bangs are growing out successfully, been dying to center part it for months now..have decided to just let the natural color take over for a while.

Tonight: green tea, dark chocolate, The Hills, my alternately bratty/snuggly cats, trying to catch up with emails, and maybe figuring out a warm vacation spot for December.

I’m so honored to be included in this article from the November issue of Teen Vogue, especially since it focuses on the ever climbing power of street style blogs. Seriously a testament to Colin’s photography. Also see me this month in Jalouse, Nylon Mexico, Elle Japan, Glamour Spain, and Vogue Girl Korea. Thank you to all these amazing magazines!

I know I’ve been slacking with all the traveling, but I’ve updated both Treasure Chest Vintage and Shoptoast. Trying to downsize my closet before it implodes.

Devonport, NZ. We were advised by the geniuses behind Lonely Hearts to make sure to explore around here and though the wind pierced my coat, tangled my hair, and made my eyes water, the view was unforgettable and the grass like velvet.

(Hervé Léger dress and sandals)

It was such an honor to attend Hervé Léger, never mind actually get to wear one of their signature bandage dresses to the show. The hand painted skeleton-like print and strong shoulders made this one of the pieces I had fallen in love with from the fall collection, so when it came down to this one and a cutout side dress at the fitting I went for it.

The show was just ridiculously good..I’m always astounded at how they can stay so strong with the body conscious silhouette yet find new ways to make it spellbindingly fresh. This time it was sandy nudes and whites, intricately woven mesh, clean braiding and knotting, almost galactic marbled prints, and even some denim. And the clogs! I’m obsessed with the clogs. The age old problem of the way the foot so easily falls out of them was adeptly solved with a double ankle strap. Yesss.

Max and Lubov were both so sweet in about a million ways that they didn’t have to be, so a huge thank you to them..so surreal to hear that they’ve been following my blog.
