Minimalism with a twist – Max Azria was extremely wearable but full of beautiful details that make you look twice. Paneling was slashed at an angle across loose dresses, draped tops turned around to entirely sheer backs that hung alluringly slightly off the body, legs were tightly leathered, and day-to-night dresses featured strong asymmetry. As a whole this struck me as a collection that you could pick four or five pieces from and be relatively set for any number of days/occasions. Even though my pack-everything, option-focused self would probably never want to actually see any such plan through. The muddy neutrals and monochromy seemed heavily ’90s but in a fresh way that has me wanting to play with the ideas in my closet..the pointy toed wedge boots can come too.
I wore a Topshop dress over a RVCA dress with this harness belt I picked up at some generic beachside store near my house + big old vintage faux fur to shield me from the snow and Jas MB clutch.

Andrew Bevan is one of my favorite people I’ve met through blogging..he’s someone that I could easily imagine hanging out with even if we both hated fashion and lived in North Dakota (no offense ND, San Diego is just about as off the fashion radar as you are). We promised to meet up after running into each other on the way into the Alexandre Herchcovitch show and upon our reunion laughed about and at pretty much everything..but only after I saved him from a freshly divorced vodka-happy partygoer who proceeded to hit on a confused Colin. I hope she found happiness later on that night.
Please note his gigantic safety pin necklace. Imagine the things you could fuse together with that thing.

J Brand sent me some jeans last week..as one commenter noted, I “don’t own any pants”. This isn’t entirely true, but honestly I just hate shopping for them since I barely every try clothes on in stores. I trust my eye for picking out my size for everything..except jeans. But these are a perfect second skin.
New York has been amazing and nonstop and I am dead tired right now…I got by in the above outfit by wearing two pairs of socks, two pairs of gloves, and three tops. The city is freezing! But so beautiful.
