I love that my readers have such a keen eye for pieces I’ve worn before, makes me smile. I’ve been in this back to basics mood lately and have been digging up some of the clothes I used to wear to death…this dress is one of the few floral prints in my closet but anyone who owns this little piece of Topshop history will agree that it’s just..perfect. Doesn’t really need much assistance so I wore it with a pair of Isabel Marant boots from a few seasons ago that I managed to track down, a bucket bag that I bought in Madrid last fall, and one of my newer acquisitions, this massive Michael Kors watch that’s about five links lighter after taking it to a repair shop in Los Feliz. I’ve been meaning to buy a gold watch forever now but finally managed to follow through a couple weeks ago, mostly to try to make this Tokyo/Paris/London trip go more smoothly. Not groping about in my bag for my phone to get the time is a real novelty that I’m sure I will forget to appreciate almost immediately. Colin and I are leaving in a few hours for the airport and as usual I’m the sleep deprived loser scrambling around till three in the morning. Seriously though, packing for pretty much the rest of the month is so daunting that it’s starting to feel pointless. The digital luggage scale and it’s mocking beeps became the enemy at about midnight. Wish me luck getting at least an hour and half of sleep right now hah.

Summer is all about easy pieces like these..this is a pretty common ‘type’ for a maxi dress but I love the double straps that give way to braided leather at the neck and the fact that it’s completely ruffle-less. Thank you Haruka and Yuka! Also wearing this dissected watch band that I picked up shopping along Takeshita-dori in Harajuku as a necklace.
Wore this for my first outing back at home in San Diego to go get ceviche and Mexican fruit salad..soo good. Tomorrow I pick up the keys for my new place in LA, can’t wait…
Happy 4th of July to my US readers..hopefully it isn’t as cold where you are as it is here tonight.
Running errands today…2 second outfit post for an outfit that took as much time to choose and put on..wearing Minkpink’s Rapunzel Maxi Dress with corseted back that Nastygal’s Sophia sent me, Jeffrey Campbell motorcycle boots, and Balenciaga bag.

It’s been hot for the past couple days…triblend romper hot. Kind of disgusting, but fun for acai bowls in the grass. Felt pretty prepared with a blanket and all but turns out full-on pavilions are de rigeur these days. Where are people even buying these things? I never see them for sale in stores. Cause you know I want one. I may or may not settle for a tent with lots of zippers.
Shakuhachi gave me a reason to love pink. Australian designers just keep on coming out with those pieces that are as wearable as they are different.
