Quick flashback to New York in one of my, oh and I think everyone else ever’s, favorite ways to be dressed down. Skinny pants, tshirt, and fitted jacket formula, I hope you’re enjoying relevance immortality. This jacket is going to be my best friend this spring largely because I feel like it’s exactly what I’ve been fantasizing adding to my biker jacket collection for actual years now. Perfect fit and zipper pulls that took just enough steroids. I’m currently sitting at the Chicago airport in the weird sanctity of United’s “quiet room” while waiting for my flight to Paris and while at first I was whimpering out of boredom I am now like hey I feel pretty calm and focused. Don’t get me wrong, The Flight That Keeps On Getting Delayed More and More, you’re still ruining my life. Can’t wait to be in Paris already!

The cracked out shoe + most basic clothing possible formula never fails me, so why not take it to the extreme? The Tom Ford story begins with the dark shift that occurred when I wore these shoes on a shoot last month here in LA. 20 minutes on my feet and it was over. I started to envision all the ways that they would impart meaning to the outfits both boring and event-appropriate and then just wasn’t strong enough to resist. I eased into my initiation with the most relaxed of outfits, a shrunken sweatshirt top and a perforated leather skirt that’s become a new go-to. Can’t wait to play around with these more.
