shambled after

25/10/2010, back to the woods, california love, vintage

(vintage silk shirt, Pendleton x Opening Ceremony wool shorts, Jeffrey Campbell taupe Lita shoes, Balenciaga bag)

Sunset at Presidio Park in San Diego, a park that no one seems to care about based on its dependable desertedness. It’s high on a pinnacle above the tourist trap they call Old Town and overlooks a tangle of freeways heading to the beach…so many people drive around the base of it every and I’m pretty sure they never look up. I got these shorts at Opening Ceremony in LA..I think I like that they’re so thick and warm for how short they are. The slanted cut kills me. Actually a weird number of pieces in my wardrobe fall under this cozy/barely any surface area category so maybe I shouldn’t be so surprised that my first Pendleton purchase would look like this instead of some sort of useful outerwear type of thing. Worn here with my favorite top and bag.

free people october catalog preview

29/09/2010, back to the woods

You might remember the trip to Philadelphia that Colin and I took in July to work with Free People..obviously the aesthetic of their clothes made this a perfect fit (two months later and I’m still obsessing over that knit maxi dress, long coat, and Gee Wawa boots) but they’re so known for their beautiful catalogs that we were equal parts nervous and honored to put something together with them. The catalog officially comes out October 5th but here are a couple preview shots of what we did…styling by me, photography by him. Check out some of the key pieces here and their official blog here. Thank you FP for being so great to work with!

trying to remember how to picture it

26/08/2010, actually wearing jeans, back to the woods, california love, j brand, sd



(Stylestalker top and J Brand jeans courtesy of Stylestalker and J Brand, Sam Edelman Falken boots, F21 headband)

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.

stone as heavy as the moon

09/08/2010, ankle boots, back to the woods, california love, white dresses anonymous

(BCBG dress, Sam Edelman Falken boots, vintage necklaces)

Colin and I are such freaks. Have you ever driven really far just for a change of weather for a few hours? The lack of hot summer nights in San Diego led us to this road meandering through crackling dry fields circled in by smooth hills where nightfall meant a drop to 80 degrees. Picked up this dreamcatcher for $20 on the side of the road from a woman who seemed much more focused on her birdhouses and jam selection. It’s now safely hanging next to the window above my bed but the bad dreams aren’t all gone.
