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.

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.

Heading to Hapa Izakaya for Japanese tapas before the show..feasted on amaebi, salmon sashimi, and miso eggplant. The consistently almost-raining weather gave me the perfect excuse to wear this blinding fringed poncho I thrifted last month. Suitable for a psychedelic Little Red Riding Hood, and me, apparently. I discovered after I brought it home with me that it’s fully reversible as well..the other side boasts semi-unattractive patchy black faux fur and brass toggles. Toggles are always good in my book.
Want to give an enormous shoutout and a lifetime’s worth of gratitude to Ms. Araki from Elle Girl Japan who gave me (I KNOW…I’m still in a confused daze over the whole thing) an Olympus EP2 camera at the photo shoot at my house last week. I tried to refuse but if you’ve ever tried this tactic against a Japanese person you know it’s most ineffective. It hasn’t left my side since..I’m still figuring out it’s endless options and settings but am already in passionate love with it. I took a picture of Kumo with it and the clarity was so extreme that it looked as if his fur was emerging all hedgehog-like through the LCD screen. Probably the most ideal camera for it’s joint portability and DSLR power..I’ve posted a few shots I’ve taken with it in the past week on genericdream.
Forward sent me this amazing one-piece…which is somehow more versatile than a skort/romper/elasticated thing should conceivably be. By that I mean a change of shoes takes it from the beach to Trader Joe’s to a night out..though I understand my idea of what makes sense where is anywhere from mildly to completely skewed according to some.
I’m working on packing a suitcase of knits and leather to fly up to rainy Vancouver with Colin tomorrow morning..can’t wait for the Obakki show…their lookbook had me sold in a heartbeat. If you have any tips for what to check out in the city I’d love to hear them..x
