waffles in bed

01/09/2011, details, in my closet, phillip lim, zara

The sweater I’m wearing in the previous post is from Zara..always love a good waffle knit. Might be an extension of my love of thermals. It’s almost long enough to be a dress but good to stick some shorts underneath. Pictured here with: 3.1 Phillip Lim quilted leather shorts, Honeydew’s Camellia bralette, and Balenciaga giant hardware clutch.

hair headphones

01/09/2011, beauty, details, tokyo, zara
In the middle of some complicated drying/knotting ceremony at the hands of Go Utsugi on location in Yurakucho in Tokyo. I used to come to this area with my parents as a kid to go to The Press Club, which I remember was always an exciting occasion. I now know it like the back of my hand after this past week..or at least where to find the best coffee and the closest clean restroom from any given point. Anyway, this is approximately step 3 of 20 but I love that it looks like I’m wearing my own hair as headphones, reminded me of the actuals on the Limi Feu SS09 runway. Falls into the slightly creepy but awesome category.

(Zara shirt, James Perse skirt, Balenciaga bag, Michael Kors watch)

This skirt is one of my favorite purchases this summer – double sided so it feels a little more substantial, and soft enough to want to commission a set of sheets in the same material. CONTINUE READING

miu miu’s muta

20/07/2011, in a button down again, la, nightlife, theyskens' theory, zara

Tonight in Beverly Hills at the premiere of a short film produced by Miu Miu, “Muta”. Really eerie six minute short that slightly made you feel like you were going to turn into a zombie on the spot. But executed really well, of’s Miu Miu. And the accessories were distracting enough to not make it too scary.

I wore a Therese Rawsthorne top knotted over a Zara skirt with Theyskens x Theory ankle strap platforms and Alexander Wang’s Jade box clutch. I got this shirt in New Zealand at one of my favorite stores Black Box Boutique last September – I love the cutout shoulders and for some reason it looks a million times better knotted than not. I think I just don’t really know what to do with properly crisp clothes so I have to sort of ruin them a bit to feel like myself.

denim + black

08/07/2011, balenciaga, paris, zara

I must have either have lost or sold off my denim shirt stash cause I never see them lying around anymore. So when I came across this one while making my way through the selection at The Kooples, it reminded me that I might wear one if only it were in my general mess radius. The overdyed pocket marks and a level of softness that could only have been achieved by significant battering make it a little bit more special too. Wore it with my black Zara skirt and cat eyes.
