At the beach in Encinitas today wearing a couple of the pieces I designed for Dannijo/Tobi – the Trinity earcuff and the Siamese ring alongside Pamela Love and Iosseliani stone rings. I really wanted to keep these two wearable and simple, with the idea of wearing them in multiples as an option. I’ve been going on about earcuffs for the entire existence of this blog so I was pretty much frothing at the mouth to breathe life into my own ideas. It feigns a triple helix piercing connected by a bar up the center..and it’s just bendable enough to get it on which means it’s secure and so comfortable you forget it’s there. I like how it looks like a series of hammered staples..I’m picturing wearing two or three next time so they go all the way up the ear. The Siamese ring was based on the idea of wearing simple bands above the knuckle..I’ve never been able to find anything small enough to fit there and wanted to create something with a double banded effect..thus the anchoring with the chain and lower band. I like it worn with big knuckle or stone rings to create a kind of umm finger balance. There’s also a little fang affixed to the chain that you can’t see here…so surreal getting to talk about my own jewelry line!
A couple things I tweaked a little – the dress is supposed to be a knee length robe sort of thing but I hiked the oversized sleeves up on my shoulders to give it a curved hem and trashed the matching slip and belt that it came with…then added this metal one that’s actually become a crux of a wardrobe staple. The hat suffered a similar fate since it originally had a horrible felt flower attached to it. Worth all the destruction though, I’ve worn both to death already. Are you guys into it when I actually talk about the clothes?
Took these at the tail end of NYFW with a little bit of a broken spirit. Crappy things happen sometimes. And chapped lips, apparently. All seems a bit distant when I’m here in LA with my favorite New Yorkers though sitting around in the heat and mocking each other endlessly. Got a couple appointments tomorrow and then the Teen Vogue Young Hollywood party, should be fun. And it looks like I’m going to San Francisco for a couple days next week so might get some family time in. I’m starting to hear birds chirping outside so I’m thinking it’s time to sleep now though.
From the Rebecca Minkoff presentation yesterday at Lincoln Center. Definitely a new thing for me but such a great experience working with Rebecca and her team was so much fun. I loved the simplicity of the dress (already available for pre-order here) and the hair was just really really good. The Made Her Think earring (worn with Mr. Kate ear cuffs) was literally sewn into my hair and reminded me of a kind of elf princess from the sea. If such a thing were to exist. Thank you to Rebecca for being such a sweetheart and having me be a part of the presentation!
Wearing a headpiece that Mr. Kate sent me last week and having some fun at the Soho Grand. Fashion week has been crazy so far..right now waiting for the Derek Lam show to start at Lincoln Center and trying to figure out what Leighton Meester is wearing. And since I suck at staying on top of posting when I’m traveling, see what I’m doing sooner on Twitter here.

The fact that this thing looks exactly like the blanket stashed in my car for spontaneous picnics and bonfires makes it feel like I’ve already owned it forever. Though this version 2.0 deal might be a little more flattering to drape all over the place and I’ll probably think twice before laying it on top of questionable grass and sand. Wore this to Venice Beach and it was all so quiet and perfect and warm that it stopped feeling real pretty quickly.
