I’ve had this hopelessly oversized thing for a few months now, for some reason it stood out to me while combing my neighborhood Goodwill. Maybe it was the oatmeal stripes? Or its potential to redefine shapeless? I wore it once and felt kind of horrible in it, so I put it away again and eventually came back to it with a plan. Deciding it was the science teacher-reminiscent half collar that was to blame, I trimmed the whole neck down and sewed it up (when I say sew I mean loop thread sloppily until nothing seems to fall apart upon contact), also closing up the fabric below the last button to stop it from gaping awkwardly in the wind. But boyshorts never hurt.
The Acne wedges have already been worn to the point of being dented and scratched…it’s so strange, from several first hand accounts I’ve heard people say that they are either stupidly painful or the most comfortable platforms they own. I’m on the side of the latter party luckily..I always reach for them first these days and have been noticing this desert boot silhouette appear from less exalted brands as well. They could work in a flat version I think. Wish we could have spent a couple more days in the city, I got zero shopping time in. Next time!

One of the best parts about New York – extreme weather changes in a concentrated period of time. I got to use almost everything I packed, though this could also be attributed to changing three times a day. Who am I kidding, I change at least that often when I’m at home too. The difference actually being that it’s harder to get sick of your clothes when different ones are always spontaneously becoming appropriate.
Bumble and Bumble was kind enough to invite me to their salon in the Meatpacking District to get my hair styled. Normally I’d be more wary but I’m into the beachy look they’re known for…I really love the smoother style they created and tried to pay attention to how it was done but somewhere around the tenth finger curl/flip/brush-through I got confused. Either way I left feeling liking a better version of myself so thank you to the Bumble and Bumble team.
I still have a bunch of NY pictures to post but Colin and I are leaving for New Zealand fashion week in a couple hours, can’t wait for the adventures that await, though I’m kind of nervous too. It’ll be my first time in the southern hemisphere, the furthest I’ve been is Hong Kong..

Some shots driving into the city from JFK. We’ve been in New York for a few days now, I know…light years have passed but I’ve had some laptop issues, sorry!! After checking in at the Soho Grand, it was straight to a dinner at Hotel Griffou hosted by Coach, where Karla and I finally met and shared most flavors of desserts worth sharing. So much to post as soon as I get some time…so far it’s been the BCBG show, Pastis, Topshop, Fashion’s Night Out at Coach and Barney’s before Opening Ceremony, random party after random party, pizza in hotel rooms, a fitting for Hervé Léger, wandering around Chinatown, using platforms against puddles, cheap sushi, expensive coffee, a long catching up with Kristin, and the Erin Wasson x RVCA show.
