The most basic outfit ever but taken up a notch with this sweet little top that I picked up while shooting with ViVi in Tokyo..we went to the Aula Aila showroom and I tried on a bunch of clothes and took photos ie. what bloggers are supposed to do no matter what the scenario I suppose. I chose a long knit dress to parade around in for a second. Anyway, the line is rad and oddly enough sort of Americana inspired..fringe, crochet, and this crazy raw cut leather chopped up into ragged little tops and jackets. Sorry for the awkward flasher shots…there was no way I was committing to taking the coat off in the brutal San Francisco wind but I wanted to at least try to emphasize the sequins clustered together so thickly that they look like jagged bits of pyrite.

Day before last in San Francisco. I got this jacket a while ago from Blue and Cream – the leather is so soft and I sized up to enhance what I think was supposed to be an oversize fit in the first place. Love the longer length and its resulting ability to actually keep you warm. Normally I recoil at the sight of pre-layered clothing but the execution of this thing with the muddy taupe sleeves and extra long trench bit at the ends is awesome. Worn over this sweater I’ve been eyeing for months at Shopbop that finally went on sale..it’s knit kind of like a bustier? If that makes any sense.
Such a gloomy first of the year, the entire day looked and felt like 5 o’clock..going to go right along with the mood and go to a late showing of The Black Swan tonight.
