Emotions experienced when Gunji-san from Vogue Japan said she had a present for me from the people at 3.1 Phillip Lim Japan and then produced this bag from the depths of the clothes we were selecting for the shoot: shock, confusion, “I can’t possibly…”, then gradual, still perplexed glee. The design’s sweet mixed message and creamy taupe leather/heavy gold studding are heaven. Meet Edie.
Ok. Bangs. I really think I’m going to do it. Also, I need this Michael Kors sweater. And the ability pull off neo-Birkenstocks with..boyfriend socks? Me this morning: a raspberry Greek yogurt smoothie, an Isabel Marant FW 09/10 dress on eBay, and pictures of underwater hotels on half my browser windows.
Some last random photos from a desolate Palm Springs, wearing Topshop, Stolen Girlfriends Club, and a Shakuhachi romper with huge sleeves and tiny shorts. I’m kind of obsessed with Shakuhachi, their spring collection is just perfect, all dusty colored draped things and wide trousers and basics redone in beautiful suede..loving this long pleated skirt too. Are you buying that I was actually busily internetting away in that laptop shot? I’m sure I was researching something completely relevant to nothing.
So I’ve never managed any kind of wink in a photo and I’m not saying this is great but approximations are enough for the smaller victories. Plus, yellow chair. I have a friend that’s able to close one eye without having it affect the rest of her face at all. Like a broken doll. Pretty jealous of that whole situation. Honestly comes in handy all the time…”Do the doll eye!”. Shot at the Viceroy, wearing shaggy coat courtesy of Egoiste and the infamous Jeffrey Campbell Litas. And other things underneath, I promise.
Today: working on deadlines for various projects, deciding if it’s time for bangs again, and trying to square away travel plans for this month…trying to see about Tokyo and Milan after New York, hopefully it all works out. Was supposed to go to Sao Paulo fashion week but a couple jobs got in the way..next time!
