(Theyskens’ Theory leather dress, Balenciaga cutout boots)
Some spots really are inevitable blog posts so you probably knew this was coming, red ants and blazing sun notwithstanding. The dress is past season but I got it on eBay..one size too big but I like that it isn’t skintight…makes it slightly less questionable on a dirt plateau. Not that I’m one to care too much but still, I try to be at least aware of awkward situations. I love that the back is scooped out about half a mile and the straps have that unexpected white worked into them.
I’m trying to squeeze in every bit of summer in LA while I can..the next couple weeks will be spent road tripping back and forth across California and then it’s off to Tokyo again at the end of the month before heading to New York and Europe for fashion month again. So soon! I’ll treasure the days in between spent at home. Small goals: make it to Harry Potter while it’s still in theaters, work out every morning before the heat settles in, make use of the giant sketchpad on my desk, have dinner at Gjelina in Venice (my favorite…best selection of local vegetables), head to the beach a few more times, and figure out a hotel for New York. Oh and also to hopefully post the rest of my travel photos from June…finally.
(ba&sh suede dress, Balenciaga boots)
I love the straight cut and loose fit of this dress..the suede is so soft and thin that it’s actually wearable for day. I dressed it down with my Balenciaga flat boots and a pink bracelet I got in Harajuku last week. The second shot is right in front of our hotel, Thoumieux..the perfect location with the ba&sh store next to it and the requisite evilly good Viennoisirie bakery right across the street. We stayed in Le Marais last time so it’s fun to traipse about on the opposite side of town for this stay.

I love this little strip on Franklin Ave. – the Daily Planet for magazines, Real Raw Live for juice, The Bourgeouis Pig for escaping a bit.
Boots of the
season year century. Robot boots or cutout Docs, I can’t wait to break these in.
