Late night sushi, wet streets, layered necklaces, Rick Owens at Joan Shepp, Di Bruno Bros. iced coffee, wandering UO’s headquarters, my favorite tshirt, picnics in bed, drinks at the crypt-like Franklin, wispy knits, dinners with the Free People crew, weathered buildings, and airport sunrises and sunsets.

At the Sofitel before going out to dinner earlier this week, screwing around with one of the gag gifts that Free People gave us. This pig shoots balls out of it’s mouth at a pretty good velocity. A few of you asked about this dress a couple posts down, I got it a while ago and left it lying around it my closet before finally getting it altered (really depressing when the smallest size is still too big at the chest). Strangely one of my favorite default pieces to wear now.

Striped long sleeve tops are one of those things I’m always looking for..I like that the material of this one is somewhere in between a tshirt and heavier knit. Also wearing the other half of my Topshop order – the chiffon tie Wisteria wedges that I jumped on when they restocked. So perfectly mummy-like..though I haven’t figured out the most ideal way to do them up yet.
(Meadham Kirchoff x Topshop asymmetrical dress, vintage slip, Miu Miu clogs)
Got ahead of myself on the Topshop collaborations there…first there was Meadham Kirchoff. I probably would have worn most of the line because it’s fun to look like a downtrodden fairy but I decided against the embellished pieces because I never wear sequins as much as I convince myself I might. The raw hem and asymmetrical patchwork quadrant are magical enough (this is me convincing myself that the peachy crop top layered dress is extraneous to my life..it’s only kind of working).
Colin and I slipped down layers of leaves on almost ninety degree slants and got entangled in disturbingly strong spiderwebs to get to this spot…it was completely blocked from the sun and encircled by the greenest life I’ve seen in Southern California for a while. With the wispy dress and crunchy surroundings I ended up accidentally channeling one of my favorite movie characters, Pixel in Happy Campers ie. Jaime King as a bohemian (in every sense of the word) camp counselor dressed in sheer layers and glittery bits. You probably haven’t seen it but you should. I think I caught it on TV once and now it’s one of the very select movies I own. Not saying it isn’t completely stupid too, because it is.
Talia: Here’s where we tell you that this was the summer we lost our innocence.
Donald: But really, it’s the summer we got it back.
Jasper: Excuse the cheese, but love matters, respect matters, and causing pain is never cool.
Pixel: Actually causing pain is about the coolest thing you can do, but cool isn’t what it used to be.
