Sweet story from a street style photographer in Paris:
“On Monday morning, I saw this guy right in the street where I was living. High fashion dress, white socks… interesting. He was busy talking on the phone so I looked for a background first. Then I asked him if I could take a picture for my street style blog and he was very kind and said yes. He was waiting for his taxi to come and seemed to be in quite a hurry, but it was enough time to take some shots.
I wanted to know if he was working at the fashion week. “Kind of”, he replied. After having taken the pictures, I asked him to fill out a form with his name and contact data as I always do. When he signed it I just said: “Oh my god, it´s you” – Marc Jacobs gave me the sheet and got into his taxi. What a nice person. And what a great beginning of my Paris fashion week adventure.”
Marc is looking good..nice calves.
Topshop is one of the few places I can order from and securely feel that the pieces are going to look better in real life. Forever 21, though I suppose not really the equivalent price-wise, is such a headache to shop in real life that I just order a bunch of crap and end up sending half of it back. I was indeed immediately smitten with this longish tank with all of it’s lovely even holes that I could never cut so uniformly. I’m really into this hole thing, along with finding the perfect pair of leather leggings and over the knee boots. Horrifically, the most perfectly narrow legged pair I found is backordered until December so my vintage ones will have to do in the meantime.
My jewelry collection is growing again, with the purchase of the awesomely creepy E&J knuckle ring and a gorgeous necklace that Lindley from Korcula sent over to me. Her collection is one of those that strike the balance between vintage and modern aesthetics, and I’m obviously into the oceanic feel to the pieces. I can already tell I’m going to be wearing both of these daily. YES new jewelry.
So glad you liked the vlog 😉

Getting more and more excited for fall and adding little touches like knit hats and loose trousers. And I swear to God, if I lost this tank I would probably cry like an idiot.
Sorry I’m behind on getting back to comments, I’m going to try to catch up tonight.
A few people asked about the Tshirt on the post below, I seriously just cut off the sleeves of those shirts that come in a pack of 3 with scissors and stretched it out a bit. Ridiculously easy!

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 😉
