I got these shorts at a store along Meiji-dori in Tokyo called Royal Flash. The place drips a slightly evil gothic vibe and they stock a lot of rad labels, including KMRii bags, which seem very alive when examined up close. Kind of like they’re all on the verge of eating each other.
Anyway, the shorts were my triumphant find, pretty basic aside from the massive leather x-back and super thin straps. I wore this out to dinner in Philadelphia with the lovely Free People crew after sewing up the gaping holes in the tshirt on the way out the door.

Heading to Urth for iced matcha lattes..hands down my favorite drink this summer. I was all bundled up in tights/cardigan/vest but was dying from heat and changed into some basics I had in my car. Thank God for my backseat turned second closet. I picked up these shorts on sale at Opening Ceremony in Tokyo..no one told me how massive their store is over there! 7 levels worth of fun. It was a short walk from my hotel so I spent a lot of time fondling..everything.

Shopping/eating/wilting in the heat in Soho…I saw this leather dress in the window of a store in Venice Beach while making my way to Gjelina a couple weeks ago….was sold on the mannequin enough to order it on the phone the next day. Prada made something like this (as in exactly) a few years ago and I never did get that dress out of my head. Blame it on Carine for making it look good enough to not be able to forget. I love sparse black in the summer.
