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.

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.

15/07/2011, california love, isabel marant, sneakers, vintage

(vintage shirt, Ksubi shorts, Isabel Marant sneakers)

Super simple today. I bought these sneakers at Creatures of Comfort on Melrose a few months ago and they’ve become my favorite shoes to do nothing types of activities in like buy ice around the corner or go to the farmer’s market. I saw the velcro version of them on Garance’s site last year and was slightly intrigued by the idea (and very entertained by the conversation they sparked), but apparently not enough to keep me from slightly forgetting they existed. So when I was just about to hand over my card when picking up some basics and saw these at the base of a mannequin nearby I did a double take and maybe slightly lunged at them in a really graceful way to try them on. I love the soft suede, the vague desert boot thing they have going on, and the more pared down look with the laces..and of course the hidden wedge that gives me the closest thing I’m going to get to my dream of being 5’9″ in flats.
