I am so incognito here. This is what I wore yesterday actually, and it is quite a Monday look – all black (well and navy…and leopard print…ok never mind) and moccasin boots for comfort. Though my newest Starbucks barista friend is now calling me “fashion girl” based on this, even though I was wearing a trapper hat when I encountered him this morning. Quite embarrassing.
And I will just note – SO difficult to try to downsize to a clutch for the day. I’m pretty sure I was entertaining my fellow public transporters as I frantically tried to jam my Gwyn Vogue and largish green apple into it at the end of our ride. But more notably, I saw someone steal a lady’s purse on the street! All these shop security guards and burly men started chasing the miscreant and he was caught a block down (a YOUNG boy, all surly looking…but I guess anyone would be surly when handcuffed to a stoplight), but perhaps purses with straps are in fact a better idea! Crazy city.
While I’m rambling and working on this next week’s auctions (going up tomorrow!), are there any requests for the store? I mean, not really specific or anything, but anything you’d like to see more of – accessories, sundresses, jackets? Would love to hear your input. By the way, the COOLEST high waisted leather ruffle miniskirt coming your way.
But you know I really wanted to wear my MJs:
Blazer, Ralph Lauren. Dress, American Apparel. Scarf, H&M. Boots, Minnetonka. Necklace (it’s actually all one) and clutch, vintage. Leather gloves, Target.
You can imagine my initial confusion and then inner shriek of delight when I opened an email today from the lovely Monica of Miss at la Playa containing the subsequent images. I have loved her blog for a long time, actually since far before I started my own, it’s always such a pleasure to see what amazing photos she’s gathered and collages she’s artfully arranged and I highly highly appreciate the English translations she makes sure to include (I did go up to Spanish 5 AP in high school but now I can only practice when ordering tacos, sad!). Plus we seem to share a love for all things Zooey, Clémence, and Gemma. I highly recommend a visit, you could easily lose an hour gazing at her amazing posts.
Being that En Vogue is my absolute favorite French Vogue feature (well alongside Une Fille Un Style), I was so honored to have her think it appropriate to do one for me, though I feel quite not cool enough for such a thing, it’s sort of a surreal sight! It’s also fun to see my style through someone else’s eyes, I love the extra accessories she chose for me and would lovingly wear every last one, most notably the YSL star heels!
Entonces muchas gracias Monica, por hacer estas imágenes, eres la más dulce! xoxo
