The rest of the outfit from a couple posts ago. Taken at my still very bare bones place in LA..my mom is promising to come bearing chairs. Which is about as far as I’ve gotten on the whole thing aside from dreaming of thrifting the perfect lamp (make that several) and coming to a screeching halt while driving by a garage sale to have them tempt me with a giant/awesome mirror (already sold..hey then take it to the crazy back already). Turns out I’m not terribly good at applying myself when it comes to interior design, aside from mockingly pointing things out as “key pieces” while shopping at stores that sort of intimidate me. Promise to post pictures whenever this stops being the case.
Aside from which..this bright blue top that ties in confusing ways makes me happy right now as does pairing black clothes and brown shoes.
Heading to Urth for iced matcha lattes..hands down my favorite drink this summer. I was all bundled up in tights/cardigan/vest but was dying from heat and changed into some basics I had in my car. Thank God for my backseat turned second closet. I picked up these shorts on sale at Opening Ceremony in Tokyo..no one told me how massive their store is over there! 7 levels worth of fun. It was a short walk from my hotel so I spent a lot of time fondling..everything.
(Alexander Wang asymmetrical dress, thrifted backless crochet top, vintage mesh bag, Miu Miu clogs)
Finally got a moment to catch up on the internet a bit…Free People has been amazing to work with! I spent Monday styling my looks at the UO headquarters and Tuesday shooting at at the most perfectly imperfect house I’ve ever seen..started out pouring rain and then gave way to oppressive humidity…but it’s all good when you’re working with such great people. Traveling this past month has definitely given me the 90 degree summer that California hasn’t.

More from Vancouver…here outside Cafe Medina after lavender mochas, mini berried-up waffles, and the best open faced salmon sandwich I’ve ever had…not that that’s a food category I indulge in frequently but still. Breakfast will always be my favorite meal.
This dress is almost disgustingly perfect..asymmetrical hem, edges that look like they were hacked up with pinking shears, and the sort of shapeless I can’t stay away from. And slightly more street-ready credibility than the actual slipdresses that I seem to think are okay to wear as legitimate dresses. The lavendery gray knit was one of my favorite pieces from this season’s Welcome to Nowhere collection. Strange that the two pieces’ diagonal lines parallel so cleanly…I promise I didn’t plan that.
