The sweater I’m wearing in the previous post is from Zara..always love a good waffle knit. Might be an extension of my love of thermals. It’s almost long enough to be a dress but good to stick some shorts underneath. Pictured here with: 3.1 Phillip Lim quilted leather shorts, Honeydew’s Camellia bralette, and Balenciaga giant hardware clutch.

With the amount of flimsy tank tops and scraggly sheer things I wear, what’s underneath really counts. Alexander Wang does lingerie so rarely that I always make sure to look out for it – usually it’s around springtime that anything is released, a couple pieces at a time if not just one. My first purchase was an elastic strap mesh layered one, last year it was a few athletically inspired pieces, and this spring it’s this ribbed knit that lies perfectly flat against the skin. So comfortable it’s addicting. Then this satin bustier top that I bought on Melrose shopping with Bryan a couple weekends ago that will be perfect layered over simple dresses, again with the thick elastic straps. Not as wearable for every day but so beautiful.
Certain items elicit so many questions that I thought it would be easier to post about a few of them at once. Daily I get about 50 emails asking what kind of camera is behind the blog. We shoot with a Canon 5D and a Canon 5D Mark II, both of which cause for no complaints. I’m not necessarily anti-Nikon, Canon just happens to be what we started out with a couple years ago. Second, and probably because there are about a million different models of them out there, I get a lot about the exact style of Ray-ban Wayfarers that I wear – I looked up the code on the side and they’re these. Forever favorites. And lastly, the low-heeled motorcycle/cowboy boots I always wear are by Jeffrey Campbell, I got them at an LF sale in La Jolla last year and have worn them so much that I just got the rivets and heels replaced AND sought out a similar style with a higher heel by Barbara Bui.
Oh and it’s obviously not pictured here but the elastic strap black minidress that I wore at Coachella is by Australian brand One Teaspoon..I got it at Live on Sunset right before the drive out. Obsessed. I wore it with a shearling vest by (also Australian) Woodford & Co., and yes it was cold enough the first night for it! Deserts. Yeah. Hopefully this rambling will sort of suffice until I manage to do a wardrobe favorites post.
Recent acquisition from Planet Blue. There was no holding back on the braiding and tassels here, which are weighty and thick and therefore awesome. Did a quick check of what else the brand has available right now and fell in love with this sheer cardigan/coverup/dress/doesn’t really even matter. Looks perfect for floating around in at Coachella..
