Running errands today…2 second outfit post for an outfit that took as much time to choose and put on..wearing Minkpink’s Rapunzel Maxi Dress with corseted back that Nastygal’s Sophia sent me, Jeffrey Campbell motorcycle boots, and Balenciaga bag.
I started the morning off cutting into an unripe mango and forcing myself to eat it anyway, opening the door to the UPS guy in an awkward non-outfit, and alarmed by the sudden existence of Google Buzz on my screen, and I really think all of this happening within ten minutes of waking up set the rest of my day off kilter. So the plan to spend the day packing to leave for NY the next morning (well, now this morning) and fitting in an event in downtown SD before we left somehow turned into Colin and I driving to Newport Beach to do something that took five minutes and with canceled flights that now have us arriving in New York on Sunday instead. Awesome. But must have been meant to be. I’m pretty depressed about missing so much but 70 degree temperatures for the next couple days sound a lot more friendly than a legitimate blizzard.
And the clothes…still obsessed with this jacket and I thrifted the massive scarf a couple weeks ago. I love how it obscures all it touches and takes center stage. I always wonder why so many scarves aren’t designed with about five times more volume but I guess I don’t have to anymore.
Sometimes the most awkward situations come from taking photographs in random places..some drunk guy came up to inspect what we were doing and proceeded to offer up his dog as a prop. Declined. But the dog was pretty cute.
This dress is one of my favorite pieces in my closet – the layers of jersey and silk somehow go perfectly with both motorcycle boots and the highest heels. I got it in New Zealand (seriously this is unintentionally becoming a catch phrase here) at Black Box, one of the only boutiques I’ve ever been in where I’ve wanted most everything. I’ve tried to track down places that stock Claude Maus in the US and gotten nowhere. Oh well. And this jacket is rad for having zippered removable sleeves..I wasn’t really in the market for a suede vest but it should be fun to play with come Spring.
