cutout boots and magazines

(vintage silk shirt, Ksubi shorts, Alexander Wang bag, Karen Walker sunglasses, Balenciaga boots)

I love this little strip on Franklin Ave. – the Daily Planet for magazines, Real Raw Live for juice, The Bourgeouis Pig for escaping a bit.

Boots of the season year century. Robot boots or cutout Docs, I can’t wait to break these in.

After shooting with Colin all over LA for a Japanese brand on Tuesday and feeling awful throughout, I came down with some kind of exhausting hybrid strep throat/flu abomination and have barely had the energy to move since. Getting by being stuck inside thanks to my iPad, my ever entertaining boyfriend (I may have been requesting impressions of inanimate objects), and a steady alternation between oolong and ginger tea. I think I’ll be alive again by the weekend, I’m already feeling bit better.

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..

It suddenly got so “cold” the past few days here in LA…I subsequently switched to giant sweater and jeans and literal effortless makeup mode. Obviously I’m not kidding around with the giantness, it is most unflatteringly tent-like. I got this thing last fall before NY fashion week and ended up leaving it on one of my highest shelves for um months shortly thereafter. Two huge faded patches to prove it. I only realized the hobbit window situated right above it all that time was the culprit after attempting to lint roll the faded sections off. Not my most evolved moment.

I got my hair touched up on Friday at Chris McMillan – the blonde bits were growing out and basically I wanted to extend them a little up again and even things out. The number of questions I get about my hair never ceases to amaze me and I always feel a little useless explaining that I used to bleach the crap out of it and then just stopped..least helpful response ever? Anyway, it was time for a little update. I made an appointment with Casey Carhart and went in slightly nervous about the first dye to touch my hair in almost two years..but she was so sweet and had exactly the light touch I wanted. The ends are brighter and the transition from light to dark more uniform now. Definitely recommend going to her if you want something similar done.
