(Mercury Duo coat, Aula Aila sheer top, Hanes wifebeater, vintage Levi’s shorts, Dolce & Gabbana wedges, Whyred sunglasses, vintage eelskin clutch)

The most basic outfit ever but taken up a notch with this sweet little top that I picked up while shooting with ViVi in Tokyo..we went to the Aula Aila showroom and I tried on a bunch of clothes and took photos ie. what bloggers are supposed to do no matter what the scenario I suppose. I chose a long knit dress to parade around in for a second. Anyway, the line is rad and oddly enough sort of Americana inspired..fringe, crochet, and this crazy raw cut leather chopped up into ragged little tops and jackets. Sorry for the awkward flasher shots…there was no way I was committing to taking the coat off in the brutal San Francisco wind but I wanted to at least try to emphasize the sequins clustered together so thickly that they look like jagged bits of pyrite.

Day before last in San Francisco. I got this jacket a while ago from Blue and Cream – the leather is so soft and I sized up to enhance what I think was supposed to be an oversize fit in the first place. Love the longer length and its resulting ability to actually keep you warm. Normally I recoil at the sight of pre-layered clothing but the execution of this thing with the muddy taupe sleeves and extra long trench bit at the ends is awesome. Worn over this sweater I’ve been eyeing for months at Shopbop that finally went on’s knit kind of like a bustier? If that makes any sense.

Such a gloomy first of the year, the entire day looked and felt like 5 o’clock..going to go right along with the mood and go to a late showing of The Black Swan tonight.

(Forever21 headband, vintage tshirt and coat, Zara belt, Current Elliott leather pants, Marni platform heels, Whyred sunglasses, LF necklace)

The rest from yesterday. Revolve sent me the leather skinnies and they are actually exactly perfect. I’ve seriously been looking for something like this forever now but had given up the the extra long zipper at the cuff and slight bunching at the knee. Go Current Elliott. Shoes were a Christmas present from my lovely comfortable! And, slightly progressively, not an ankle boot.

Lucky day at Wasteland on Haight Street yesterday – I saw this gigantic vintage Mongolian lamb coat hanging high up on the wall behind the cash register and knew I had to try it on. Apparently a lot of people had almost taken it home but I was the one to bite the bullet..I realized the second I put it on there was no way I was leaving without it. Makes me feel invincible-ish and I think I’ve essentially just lost privileges to all excuses to ever be cold again. I’ll post the rest of the outfit when it isn’t 3am.

(Monki sweater, Therese Rawsthorne dress, Topshop ‘Proud’ boots, Forever 21 sunglasses and headband, Hope leather tote)

Still convinced that this dress is the best thing ever…for the potential it has to be dressed up (it has this beautifully low cut back and knotted straps) there are infinite possibilities to wear it casually too. Worn here in San Francisco last week with one of my favorite cropped and boxy sweaters and these boots I can’t seem to take off.
