The cafe that doubles as my second home when I’m at my place in Silverlake. Mostly because I still don’t have internet there. Or silverware, for that matter. This ruined Bryan‘s life a little bit when he was staying with me but we made a routine of lugging our laptops to LA Mill, him possibly multiple times a day (while I slept in..let me note that he sleeps about as much as a goldfish..but gives good post-lights out girltalk), to try and stay caught up on everything. Luckily they serve everything from breakfast and the best hot chocolate I’ve had outside of Italy to wine and some strangely varied dinner options. I can’t be the only one that gets suspicious when restaurants serve Japanese food alongside pasta and caesar salad…
Anyway, we took these these shots before sitting down to answer emails for 4 straight hours and after I painstakingly taught him how to focus with a DSLR. Wearing pretty much all of my current favorite pieces..I bought the jacket at Zara in Harajuku this summer. I’ve got the exact same one in black that they sold last winter and immediately grabbed this one when I recognized all the detailing. I love that it gets visibly more broken in with every wear.

Felt pretty triumphant when I ordered the last size in this dress from Net-a-porter after deliberating over it for a few days. Reminds me of wearing a spiderweb or a cirrus cloud. Which is pretty much the ultimate compliment. Colin and I took it to a proper field to let the light seep through it. Indian summer temperatures in California have everyone complaining but I’m kind of enjoying it, though finalizing plans to go to apparently frigid New York City and Tokyo this month might have something to do with that.
Some of you guys may have read about the jewelry line I designed for Dannijo exclusively for Tobi this week on Refinery29, The Examiner, NBC, and Harper’s Bazaar. I’ve been working on this since June and am so excited that the pieces will be available soon (Tobi’s having a presale so get your orders in because quantities will be limited)…I’ll post more on my inspirations for the line and detail shots ASAP – it was seriously a dream come true getting to realize my vision and work with the Dannijo sisters. Wearing the Isosceles necklace here and actually have been wearing the prototypes in all of my posts from the past few months..I’m so happy with them, all of the pieces couldn’t possibly be more..me.

I got this dress at H&M with my mom last month – I was in San Francisco for the day so I made her take me shopping after she picked me up at the airport. More to make sure we spent time together than because I was looking for something in particular..this ended up being my only purchase aside from cream puffs and coffee. I love that it looks like a nightgown and that there really is that much material to swoosh around in. Worn this weekend with various round things on my head to brunch at Alcove Café in Los Feliz.

Weird amount of things that I love going on with this little suit for being so simple – one piece, passable as pyjamas, hooded, smushy knit..and the easiest thing to throw on in three seconds when running out the door. Though the chances of having to do that might be slim since it’s also become my default for lazing around the house. Possible step backward.
I have a million boring things to do tomorrow before driving up to LA for the weekend to welcome Bryan for his first visit to California. Halloween ideas are non-existent..and I was so sure that inspiration would have struck by now. Slowly starting to scramble.
