02/08/2011, balenciaga cutout boots, california love, la, theyskens' theory

(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.

I have this unstoppable lean back. It’s pretty terrible. This is actually a mild rendition.

Took this shot in West Hollywood a couple days ago. These navy silk trousers are my new favorite to mindlessly reach for in the mornings. So comfortable but not quite sloppy so this seemed appropriate to post on a Sunday.

I can’t get enough of sweaters and tiny shorts..makes about as much sense as boots and shorts and I obviously never had a problem with that one either. Here a couple days ago in Marc by Marc Jacobs ‘Melinda’ knit and Pendleton x Opening Ceremony dark denim.

(LF silk dress, H&M belt, Hope bag, Theyskens x Theory wedges)

I like dresses with a slight kimono look to them..really easy to wear and style differently depending on your mood but I’m still looking for that perfect one. I used an H&M belt that a reader in Tokyo gave me at an event to cinch this one in…to be honest it’s been months that I haven’t known what to do with it but the black on black/suede on silk works for me. This in-between casual and not type of look is something that I think I subconciously do on purpose to avoid categorization.

(Theory sweater, Isabel Marant shorts, L’Autre Chose wedges, Theyskens’ Theory messenger bag)

Picking up the latest Lula at Sherwood in West Hollywood ie. my favorite magazine stand in LA. The owner Dimitri stocks everything and if he doesn’t, he’ll do everything he can to obtain whatever you’re looking for…no matter how obscure. Even if it means direct calls to Brazil. Not quite sure how I’m going to celebrate the first day of Carmageddon…part of me wishes I was up on the helicopter ride above the 405 right now to see the emptiness for myself but I’ll have to entertain myself some other way.
