first day in paris

24/09/2013, fashion week, paris


(Zara sheer turtleneck, Maje skirt, Phillip Lim backpack and mules)

I haven’t stopped dressing like the non-existent token half Asian from Clueless since September began, why would arriving in Paris change that? Also it’s still summer here which is nice.


With the weight of the objects I’m carrying around and the amount of skin on my heels that’s been rubbed raw to the cartilage (sorry), these are the predicted accessories of choice this week. Always can rely on Phillip for form and function. So happy to be back in Paris for the last bit of summer!

Such a beautiful week in Stockholm – thank you to everyone who made the trip so special! Feel free to me about outfits/shows/general whatever or maybe my policy about what happens to selfies that are taken on my phone. Hope you enjoyed my trip in photos, this is one of my absolute favorite cities to visit.

(Jenni Kayne dress, Burberry Little Crush bag, Weekday earring, Inez and Line & Jo rings, Alexander Wang sandals)

Got a little done up for the Socialyte Awards last week, held at The Box in the Lower East Side. I was so honored to receive the Industry Choice Award! I wore this simple but dramatic pseudo-robe dress from Jenni Kayne’s fall collection that I’m extremely sure I didn’t tie up in the manner intended. I always have to have something slightly off don’t I. There were, entertainingly enough for a blogger event, no photos allowed inside the venue so these were shot around the Bowery after heading out.

play by play at phillip lim

17/09/2013, acne, céline, fashion week, isabel marant, nyc


Arriving at Skylight at Moynihan Station, quite the beautiful traffic vortex, this place. It’s one of the more photogenic show venues in New York, what with the historic New York vibe contrasting against the stark industrial interior. Very important to set up coordinates of exactly where you’re going to meet your mode of transport afterwards otherwise you’ll probably perish wandering forlornly up and down 9th Avenue. Well, there are worse ways to go. You’ll at least have lots of company in the same boat.


See me equipped with my Sony Xperia Z tablet, my latest toy to keep me updated on the go. It sold itself on waterproof.


I really hope there was no almond butter on my face.


My pal Andrew Bevan escorted me in, which was my favorite. And hey, nice nude briefcase, Andrew, I like that.


Also my favorite was seeing beautiful Marie who I last met up with in Tokyo over the summer.


Fray in the front row.


Some of my favorite looks. Everything stiff and boxy is appealing to me right now, so that sheath dress is conversing with my soul. Same goes for the Lim-ified trench and duffle.


Sneaking out of the vortex.


Last shots in this outfit before dinner in the West Village. And finally the outfit details – Acne Mape biker jacket, Robert Rodriguez top, Étoile Isabel Marant foldover skirt, Céline wedges, Ray-ban Wayfarers, and Valentino monogrammed wrist clutch. Overall A+ afternoon.

A good chunk of my beauty routine is NARS, specifically the Satin Lip Pencil in Biscayne Park, Nico blush (least offensive and most subtle sheen award), and pretty much all shades of The Multiple. I haven’t had too much experience with their foundations but they sent me their latest formula, the Radiant Cream Compact Foundation to try out and I haven’t let it too far out of my reach since, and not just cause I like staring at the compact now and then all oversized and luxurious. It goes on feeling almost like a moisturizer and the finish is dewy and light, perfect for the 100% of us that are deathly afraid of looking all matte like movie vampires. Check it out here!
