Wearing your shoulder bag inside of your jacket is the new not ever putting your jacket on completely, but it’s of course best to do both if possible. So yesterday morning I woke up in this very specific mood to drown in my clothes and this is what I ended up with. The slouchy/sloppy trousers and bag are fresh from Paris last week and the rest is stuff you’ve seen before on here. Wore this in the LA almost-rain to run some errands in the city. Yes it was freezing and yes I’m terrified to head to New York on Sunday so I am forced to revise that statement. Also excited though! Fashion week looms.

Swanning around yesterday on Melrose in the last bits of daylight. So I love recycling pieces from my closet. If I like something, I commit wholly and would ideally be able to come up with a million ways to wear it into the ground. Which I’ve done almost to a fault for fashion blogging standards with these items (sorry?). But I love the extra touch of overboard-ness and texture this bag I got in Paris in October adds. Inky color palette you are addictive.

Inky elevated basics for another beautiful Santa Monica sunset. This sweater had been haunting me since the exact moment it hit the runway – I love the notched hem and massive cutout. The most ’90s thing to somehow not actually look that ’90s on.

Sitting down with an eyeshadow palette packed with a rainbow of neutrals is something that just makes me happy. I’m loving Smashbox’s Full Exposure Palette – it comes with suggestions on how to use the mattes and neutrals to work with your exact eye shape. I used the light taupes on my lids and a tiny bit of light shimmer at the inner corners to create this look with my favorite cat eye. Definitely going to experiment with a smokier gunmetal style next.

A couple things that made it back from Paris to LA – Bash Paris’ simple oversized robe dress and Goyard’s every day-applicable shoulder bag.
