I got to meet up with the beautiful Joyce Azria, otherwise known as the creative director of BCBGeneration, last week. How much I love all of Max Azria’s brands translated into almost dying of nervousness on the way to the BCBG headquarters (when I wasn’t distracted by getting lost and ending up at a “cutting and fusing facility” oops) but that melted away when Joyce turned out to be the most likeable person, ever. We talked sheer things, marching band hats, and egg-shaped thrones, I got a tour of a good part of the massive building, we spied on Lubov in a meeting, and she sent me off with some fun pieces to play with. These beautiful trousers included. I’m obsessed with this exaggerated wide leg right now and the slits on the legs are the perfect extra detail to make them special. Ended up with sort of an updated ’60s groupie look here, shot at the daisy-covered but freezing Lafayette Park in San Francisco.

Colin and I shot a video ad for new fragrance Seductive #2 from the Ralph Lauren Big Pony Fragrance Collection on our last day in New York..definitely a little outside of our comfort zone (as I’m sure you can tell, he prefers to stay behind the lens..and I’m no expert on cologne) but it was an awesome experience. We shot in and around the Soho Grand and were blessed with unseasonably warm weather as well as an off kilter crew that made going well into the night a lot of fun. I’ll be posting the video in a couple days!

the only sunny day

(vintage sweater and clutch, H&M suede top, One Teaspoon shorts, Alexander Wang boots)

The only bit of sun in the past week of steady rain here in LA. Went to one of my favorites Cru off Sunset and wore the shirt counterpart to the dress I wore in this post, a pair of perfect little shorts that One Teaspoon sent me, a vintage cardigan whose collar detailing I accidentally ripped off in a suitcase incident (like it better now anyway), a bag I’ve had forever that I converted into a clutch, and these brutal Alexander Wang boots I’ve been staring at online for months. They kind of contort the foot into a Barbie arch more than any other shoes I own but I just barely don’t care.

Isabel Marant pink lace-up shorts. Love the boring wide belt with them too.
