Silver lining

Fruit of the Loom shirt, Topshop shorts, Zara boots, vintage bag, UO headband, OPI polish in My Private Jet.

Part two of the dirty boot series. After a brief (around ohhh 1 minute long) rain shower yesterday morning that got me all excited for the pseudo-fall, it was definitely depressing to face a 90 degree day today. Yes, even I have tired of summer and it’s seemingly depleted wardrobe options. Luckily I was loafing around the house in my heart print romper and marabou heels like the infantile loser I am this afternoon for the delivery of my Topshop goods. Holey sweater = awesome, holey tank = also awesome, but the single whole garment I ordered is my favorite – silver painted shorts. Probably one of those pieces you have to force versatility upon, but I am prepared to take on the task. As long as weird old men at Trader Joe’s stop whispering to me that they like my shorts when I’m innocently trying to yoink some crepe samples.

The boots I picked up at Zara in NY as a way to attempt to placate my mad desire for the Balmains that I’ve apparently been raving about for so long that Jak & Jil’s Tommy dedicated his post of Anna Dello Russo’s pair to yours truly. Thanks Tommy, the salivating hasn’t quite let up yet. O Balmain gods I promise I would wear them with more than tiny shorts if I somehow was able to acquire! This fringe-less Zara pair need some help..I just may attack them with studs.

Thank you for all your sweet comments from the other day, things seem to be slowly re-aligning themselves. Plus I have a photo shoot for a magazine on Thursday that I’m having a great amount of fun agonizing over what to wear for. Send any ideas my way, it’s just going to be one look so it has to be good.

Oh and to answer my top two most asked questions..I’m 5’7″ and half Japanese, half Dutch and Scottish ;)

And on my favorite models, at that. I would do anything for the black dresses, almost anything for the third, and the fourth I feel I can attempt to recreate with a vintage jacket I’m having dry cleaned right now. Christophe is God.

American Apparel bodysuit, Marc by Marc Jacobs boots, Forever 21 hat and necklace.

We took these a couple weeks ago but they seem more relevant to how I feel now…weird weekend in a big bad way.

I’ll leave you with one of my favorite Ginsberg snippets:

“Angelheaded hipsters burning for the ancient heavenly connection to the starry dynamo in the machinery of night…”

Not my experiment

Thrifted tank thing, Erin Wasson x RVCA shirt, Forever 21 necklace, Aldo peep toe boots.

I was in a uhh weird mood today..I cooped myself up in the house to get a bunch of work done, aside from a trip to Target where I accidentally spent $100..DAMNIT. I mean I needed the Sex and the City the Movie DVD but I’m thinking the Jemma Kidd makeup was a little extraneous.

This tank dress is probably the most horrible thing I’ve ever seen. I am therefore in love with it. It actually isn’t even a dress, it’s a men’s wifebeater for god’s sakes. Hanes. I found it at a Salvation Army in LA and since I’m too lazy to DIY 99% of the time I figured I would just reap the rewards of someone else’s little tie dye experiment.

A day in the life

24/09/2008, General

Nothing like a day screwing around with these maniacs. I drove over to Costa Mesa (note: driving in ass-short leather skirt is just as awkward as one would imagine) to meet up with Kristin and Teen Vogue’s Andrew at the RVCA headquarters and take a look at where it all goes down. I met a bunch of people, drank trial sized Vitamin Water, and got to peer at unseen pieces from Erin’s line.

Isn’t every office similarly equipped?

A corner we didn’t sit in.

I had no idea that RVCA was involved with so many rad artists, in addition to publishing ANP, a quarterly magazine dedicated to art. Here are my favorites, but check them all out here:

Andrew drove us over to a Cuban restaurant in his classy town car to meet up with PM and the mildly insane Tim Hendricks where we chatted about tapeworms and chest hair over plantains. This was, of course, followed by an excursion into sneakerhead-topia. I proceeded to fondle the large-ish selection of Comme des Garcons wallets and make a scene with my beloved Andrew.

I think we were actually having that much fun. We all opted out of group sangria but you wouldn’t know it.

RVCA founder PM, me, Tim. We are doing really awesome things with our hands, no?

Kristin found these rusty barrels for me..she knows I like decrepit things. Awww.

Telling Kristin what’s up.

Teaching them how to pose like a blogger. It is, after all, a fine art.

Oops..except you’re not supposed to smile.

A tiny glimpse of Andrew’s DOLLY PARTON TSHIRT. Apparently he and Erin had the honor of meeting her this week..I can’t decide whether I’m jealous or not. In the back, it reads “Dolly Parton forever“. That’s all.

Then it was time for accessory show-and-tell in the backseat. I immediately whipped out my fingerless lace gloves.

I wanted to steal all of her rings. Especially the one that looks like it should belong to Shredder. Oh, and since I always receive a weird amount of questions about nail polish, I’m wearing “You don’t know Jacques” by OPI, which I spotted on Garance when we met up in New York. Apparently Kate Lanphear asked her about it too..just saying. Anyway, read her hilarious tale about it here.

Her nonchalant face. People asked for more Kristin so I tried extra hard to document her, as difficult as she made sure to make it.

Warehouse pictures are never too exciting. But warehouses themselves are.

Andrew likes them too.

The end…thank you to all of the above, and for the phone call on the way home ;)
