(Theyskens’ Theory bustier top, Alexander Wang knit bra)
With the amount of flimsy tank tops and scraggly sheer things I wear, what’s underneath really counts. Alexander Wang does lingerie so rarely that I always make sure to look out for it – usually it’s around springtime that anything is released, a couple pieces at a time if not just one. My first purchase was an elastic strap mesh layered one, last year it was a few athletically inspired pieces, and this spring it’s this ribbed knit that lies perfectly flat against the skin. So comfortable it’s addicting. Then this satin bustier top that I bought on Melrose shopping with Bryan a couple weekends ago that will be perfect layered over simple dresses, again with the thick elastic straps. Not as wearable for every day but so beautiful.
Certain items elicit so many questions that I thought it would be easier to post about a few of them at once. Daily I get about 50 emails asking what kind of camera is behind the blog. We shoot with a Canon 5D and a Canon 5D Mark II, both of which cause for no complaints. I’m not necessarily anti-Nikon, Canon just happens to be what we started out with a couple years ago. Second, and probably because there are about a million different models of them out there, I get a lot about the exact style of Ray-ban Wayfarers that I wear – I looked up the code on the side and they’re these. Forever favorites. And lastly, the low-heeled motorcycle/cowboy boots I always wear are by Jeffrey Campbell, I got them at an LF sale in La Jolla last year and have worn them so much that I just got the rivets and heels replaced AND sought out a similar style with a higher heel by Barbara Bui.
Oh and it’s obviously not pictured here but the elastic strap black minidress that I wore at Coachella is by Australian brand One Teaspoon..I got it at Live on Sunset right before the drive out. Obsessed. I wore it with a shearling vest by (also Australian) Woodford & Co., and yes it was cold enough the first night for it! Deserts. Yeah. Hopefully this rambling will sort of suffice until I manage to do a wardrobe favorites post.

After shooting with Colin all over LA for a Japanese brand on Tuesday and feeling awful throughout, I came down with some kind of exhausting hybrid strep throat/flu abomination and have barely had the energy to move since. Getting by being stuck inside thanks to my iPad, my ever entertaining boyfriend (I may have been requesting impressions of inanimate objects), and a steady alternation between oolong and ginger tea. I think I’ll be alive again by the weekend, I’m already feeling bit better.
New favorite default outfit…comfortable and just barely not boring. These sickeningly pink shorts are one of my favorite purchases for spring. Love the lace-up detailing and their ability to go with every mushroom-ish nothing-colored thing in my wardrobe. Perfect!
One more reason to fall in love with Theyskens’ Theory. It’s been a while since I’ve been into an electric blue shoe, or even a pump, but these look like they were crafted by at least a wizard. I guess this also means I’ll have to support crushed velvet transcending seasons. Actually no. It’ll be case by case.
