02/08/2011, balenciaga cutout boots, california love, la, theyskens' theory

(Theyskens’ Theory leather dress, Balenciaga cutout boots)

Some spots really are inevitable blog posts so you probably knew this was coming, red ants and blazing sun notwithstanding. The dress is past season but I got it on eBay..one size too big but I like that it isn’t skintight…makes it slightly less questionable on a dirt plateau. Not that I’m one to care too much but still, I try to be at least aware of awkward situations. I love that the back is scooped out about half a mile and the straps have that unexpected white worked into them.

I’m trying to squeeze in every bit of summer in LA while I can..the next couple weeks will be spent road tripping back and forth across California and then it’s off to Tokyo again at the end of the month before heading to New York and Europe for fashion month again. So soon! I’ll treasure the days in between spent at home. Small goals: make it to Harry Potter while it’s still in theaters, work out every morning before the heat settles in, make use of the giant sketchpad on my desk, have dinner at Gjelina in Venice (my favorite…best selection of local vegetables), head to the beach a few more times, and figure out a hotel for New York. Oh and also to hopefully post the rest of my travel photos from June…finally.

I have this unstoppable lean back. It’s pretty terrible. This is actually a mild rendition.

Took this shot in West Hollywood a couple days ago. These navy silk trousers are my new favorite to mindlessly reach for in the mornings. So comfortable but not quite sloppy so this seemed appropriate to post on a Sunday.

I like dresses with a slight kimono look to them..really easy to wear and style differently depending on your mood but I’m still looking for that perfect one. I used an H&M belt that a reader in Tokyo gave me at an event to cinch this one in…to be honest it’s been months that I haven’t known what to do with it but the black on black/suede on silk works for me. This in-between casual and not type of look is something that I think I subconciously do on purpose to avoid categorization.

miu miu’s muta

20/07/2011, in a button down again, la, nightlife, theyskens' theory, zara

Tonight in Beverly Hills at the premiere of a short film produced by Miu Miu, “Muta”. Really eerie six minute short that slightly made you feel like you were going to turn into a zombie on the spot. But executed really well, of course..it’s Miu Miu. And the accessories were distracting enough to not make it too scary.

I wore a Therese Rawsthorne top knotted over a Zara skirt with Theyskens x Theory ankle strap platforms and Alexander Wang’s Jade box clutch. I got this shirt in New Zealand at one of my favorite stores Black Box Boutique last September – I love the cutout shoulders and for some reason it looks a million times better knotted than not. I think I just don’t really know what to do with properly crisp clothes so I have to sort of ruin them a bit to feel like myself.

One more reason to fall in love with Theyskens’ Theory. It’s been a while since I’ve been into an electric blue shoe, or even a pump, but these look like they were crafted by at least a wizard. I guess this also means I’ll have to support crushed velvet transcending seasons. Actually no. It’ll be case by case.
