During NYFW back in February, Bryan and I made a video with Kanon and What Comes Around Goes Around and gave our perspectives on sustainability and vintage clothes. Follow us try on massive coats and tiny sweaters and plan a kaftan-centric vacation on Kanon’s blog here!

coachella one

19/04/2011, california love, coachella, palm springs, topshop, vintage

(Topshop sheer dress, vintage slip, Deadly Ponies bag, Jeffrey Campbell boots)

Just got back from the best weekend ever in Coachella, a blur of awesome bands, questionable food, ubiquitous denim shorts and/or fringe, shuttles from arbitrary shopping malls to fashion pool parties (Jeremy Scott at Elvis’ house! Phillip Lim at Joan Collins’!), carpooling around the desert with Garance, overly optimistic time management, a trunk full of dusty boots, and um a Ron Jeremy sighting? A ton more photos to come! xo

lafayette park

31/03/2011, san francisco, the prada platforms, vintage

(vintage faux fur coat and tshirt, BCBGeneration wide legged trousers, Prada heels)

I got to meet up with the beautiful Joyce Azria, otherwise known as the creative director of BCBGeneration, last week. How much I love all of Max Azria’s brands translated into almost dying of nervousness on the way to the BCBG headquarters (when I wasn’t distracted by getting lost and ending up at a “cutting and fusing facility” oops) but that melted away when Joyce turned out to be the most likeable person, ever. We talked sheer things, marching band hats, and egg-shaped thrones, I got a tour of a good part of the massive building, we spied on Lubov in a meeting, and she sent me off with some fun pieces to play with. These beautiful trousers included. I’m obsessed with this exaggerated wide leg right now and the slits on the legs are the perfect extra detail to make them special. Ended up with sort of an updated ’60s groupie look here, shot at the daisy-covered but freezing Lafayette Park in San Francisco.

the only sunny day

25/03/2011, alexander wang, california love, la, vintage

(vintage sweater and clutch, H&M suede top, One Teaspoon shorts, Alexander Wang boots)

The only bit of sun in the past week of steady rain here in LA. Went to one of my favorites Cru off Sunset and wore the shirt counterpart to the dress I wore in this post, a pair of perfect little shorts that One Teaspoon sent me, a vintage cardigan whose collar detailing I accidentally ripped off in a suitcase incident (like it better now anyway), a bag I’ve had forever that I converted into a clutch, and these brutal Alexander Wang boots I’ve been staring at online for months. They kind of contort the foot into a Barbie arch more than any other shoes I own but I just barely don’t care.
