Shots from a rainy afternoon in San Francisco checking out a few vintage and Tibetan shops. Tights and hats are the best options for rainy days, suede wedges are not. Oops. Although they somehow emerged unscathed. Is that whole thing a myth?

Day before last in San Francisco. I got this jacket a while ago from Blue and Cream – the leather is so soft and I sized up to enhance what I think was supposed to be an oversize fit in the first place. Love the longer length and its resulting ability to actually keep you warm. Normally I recoil at the sight of pre-layered clothing but the execution of this thing with the muddy taupe sleeves and extra long trench bit at the ends is awesome. Worn over this sweater I’ve been eyeing for months at Shopbop that finally went on’s knit kind of like a bustier? If that makes any sense.

Such a gloomy first of the year, the entire day looked and felt like 5 o’clock..going to go right along with the mood and go to a late showing of The Black Swan tonight.

Weird amount of things that I love going on with this little suit for being so simple – one piece, passable as pyjamas, hooded, smushy knit..and the easiest thing to throw on in three seconds when running out the door. Though the chances of having to do that might be slim since it’s also become my default for lazing around the house. Possible step backward.

I have a million boring things to do tomorrow before driving up to LA for the weekend to welcome Bryan for his first visit to California. Halloween ideas are non-existent..and I was so sure that inspiration would have struck by now. Slowly starting to scramble.

Shopping aggregate site Beso let me pick out a couple items for NYFW and one of the items I went for was this asymmetrical sweater with huge sleeves from La Garconne. I love the massively chunky knit and slashed neckline. Requisite Times Square shots..sorry. The place is complete sensory overload and kind of terrifies me but where else is it this blindingly bright no matter what time it is?
