basics in a plastic lawn chair

31/08/2010, actually wearing jeans, california love

My love affair with Elizabeth and James’ Stevie jeans continues. I must be on crack because the idea of a burnout top suddenly took on appeal after eons of staying away from the stuff.

I’ve been in LA for the past few days – a couple photo shoots (one of which ended in face paint, coon hats, and Polaroids), two rounds of vegan Thai food, catching up with a friend I hadn’t seen in too long, sharing a dressing room with the boyfriend at Live on Sunset (our joint new favorite brand = Iro…henley for him and a bodysuit for me in the same moth eaten ancient sweats material), trying to look helpful while he replaced doorknobs and put together massive shelving units, frequent caffeine fuel-ups at 7-11, and deciding that a vintage trunk full of shoes is a highly acceptable and much sturdier stand-in for a coffee table. One more meeting before heading back to San Diego…and a week left before we leave for New York!

waiting at cheap monday

28/08/2010, ankle boots, stockholm, topshop, vintage

The Cheap Monday show was dramatically stormy and right on the water..such a cool venue. We got there early and killed time documenting our..bags. Mine looks a little Derelicte next to his huh. Wearing a Topshop leopard coat (love the shortened sleeves on the petite sizes) I ordered last month, Bryan‘s Chanel, and Jeffrey Campbell motorcycle boots.

rose brun vert

I’ve calmed down from painting my nails some random new color every week and have been doing bare nails for the most part lately but this could change things..I think I’ll try rose first.

trying to remember how to picture it

The more everyday-wearable counterpart to Stylestalker’s Vulture dress I posted a few months ago..I unlaced the front to leave the grommets open and kept it simple with jeans.

Enjoying the last of summer in San Diego and LA before leaving for New York and New Zealand next month. For now, focused on the glamorous task of driving to the Canon service center in Irvine..ugh.

hope s/s 11: gaiter-reminiscent wedges and a leather maxi skirt

25/08/2010, runway, stockholm

delivered tweaked basics and some standout pieces…the wrapped wedges in what looks to be coated canvas and leather caught my attention immediately. I’m picturing the swooshy skirt with a simple knit tank and round sunglasses..Vogue has declared minimalism’s arrival and this is pretty much the perfect salute.
