brick lane

13/07/2011, london, proper blazers, vintage

(Topshop silk blazer, vintage slip, Marco Tagliaferri bag, Alexander Wang ‘Zoe’ oxfords, Whyred sunglasses)

Brick Lane was a spot I definitely wanted to make time for – vintage stores interspersed with kinda seedy other stores, people lining up around blocks for non-obvious reasons, dodging cars in a way that reminds you how precious life is (so very!), actively being recruited to eat curry every five feet (sorry, hate the stuff)…all made for a very sensory experience. Luckily I’m pretty nimble in these shoes. I had brought a leather jacket but peeled it off early on..did not expect London to get so warm, it kept on throwing me off. We energized with chai tea, and made our way down. I feel like there’s something interesting to look at every second in London’s alleys and markets and I took photos of odd corners and skyscapes until it was awkward. Came thisclose to buying a giant shaggy jacket before coming to grips with the fact that it wouldn’t even fit in Colin’s suitcase at this point (yes I am the awful type of girlfriend that smashes clothes into others’ luggage). I wore this blush pink silk blazer I’d bought at THE Topshop in Oxford Circus over my most ancient slipdress..tried to counteract the wispiness of it all with my trusty Marco Tagliaferri bag, oversized watch, and the sensible shoes.

late lunch

19/06/2011, isabel marant, paris, rag & bone, vintage, zara

(Rag and Bone hat, Etoile Isabel Marant knit and suede boots, Zara skirt, vintage bag, Michael Kors watch)

I’ve already gotten so much wear out of this twirly Zara skirt..so easy to wear with anything. It was so cold in Paris today! Colin and I got up early for a long Metro ride to the flea market and spent the rest of the day trying to figure out what you’re supposed to to on Sundays here. Tried to realize a sudden dream to bike around the city but found out our credit cards wouldn’t work in the Velib machines..so ended up eating croissants and cornichons in bed instead. Not bad either.

good morning sun

15/05/2011, ankle boots, california love, isabel marant, la, silverlake, topshop, vintage

(Whyred sunglasses, Isabel Marant Muddy sweater, vintage leather dress, Topshop boots, Fendi bag)

I peeked through the blinds at 6:30 this morning and was groggily pleased to see it was raining but all is back to normal now. Wearing Isabel Marant’s crew neck sweater I ended up being unable to resist over a vintage leather dress from a store in Venice Beach that has since closed. Going to catch up on life today and hopefully reward myself by curling up with The Andy Warhol Diaries later on. One of the most quotable books I’ve read in a while.
