modern times

loved everything about the jil sander show (except for the twee little hats). so fresh and modern and clean, the textures and shapes reminded me so much of matisse's collages:

going green

suddenly attracted to all things green. thrifted this amazing fisherman sweater (a little proenza schouler-ish, mais non?) and added some turquoise and green jade jewels to my collection. is this what they mean by a green thumb?

can i have some

two tone totes

Thursday, September 15, 2011


so, the jcrew presentation was fabulous. the colors, the proportions, everything was great. there was a bit of buzz about how jcrew didn't belong at fashion week, but when i looked around during the week so many of the most stylish show-goers (stylists, editors, buyers) were wearing a piece or two by the brand.

i think it makes total sense to have jcrew at fashion week, if only to represent that style comes at all price points. yes, the scale and speed of production at a brand like jcrew is different than at a more 'high fashion' brand, but the fashion industry has changed so much post-recession and post-internet and i think jcrew's presence is a sign of that. also colors! stripes! sequins! who can argue with those?

more fashion week faves

PETER SOM: loving the color chord of blue, blue, blue, turquoise, and a splash of orange.

DEREK LAM: so sharp it gave me papercuts.

TIMO WEILAND: hey there timo, you are awesome. welcome to my pantheon of designer crushes.

blue crush

Headed out for some fashion week fun. A lot of my friends are in the fashion industry and it's always exciting to spend this crazy week in their world, even if I do always feel a little under-dressed (am I the only one at fashion week not wearing one item of A.Wang?).

all vintage, all the time: levis, dior bag, silk shirt, blue pumps

fashion week favorites

RACHEL COMEY: quirky takes on the tomgirl staples, such as the shorts-suit, especially digging the print made from photographs of cable-knit.

SUNO: congrats Suno on your first runway show, you knocked it out of the park. awesome prints, as always, and some gorgeous new silhouettes. i love it when nice things happen to nice people.

BAND OF OUTSIDERS: hey there cute clothes. can i wear all of you?

sweater weather

my favorite thing: boxy cozy sweaters

Thursday, September 1, 2011


Finally took the plunge and bought the Rachel Comey 'Penpal' boots that I've coveted for the past year. They were more than I'd usually spend, but they're just so exactly what I'm looking for, not too biker-y or tough looking but not too dainty or ladylike either. Ever since I started working in high end retail last year I've begun to think of shopping as an investment, and learned from my very chic clients that it's better to own a few perfect, expensive items than a ton of inexpensive, imperfect ones.
