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.

The last couple weeks have taken me from LA to London to Marrakech to Paris, where I’m staying for the next few days before attempting suitcase Tetris again. I imagined this little gladiator skirt being more appropriate back home in California with say, a sheer tshirt and some ugly-cool footwear but I think I can accept it with tights if I have to. Thank you to this bag for making everything look acceptable.
Starting the new year off right. With a post I meant to put up two months ago. I gave you guys glimpses into my experience at Tokyo fashion week via Instagram updates and outfit posts but here’s a fuller scope of what I got into over there. With the traquillion times I’ve been to Japan the past few years, this was my first time getting to attend the shows at their official Mercedes Benz fashion week. These were shows that were unafraid to take very honed in angles. The A Degree Fahrenheit show was executed completely in tangerine orange, Murua was Neverland whimsy complete with a crinoline parade, and Somarta‘s neutral toned kimono dresses were streamlined to perfection.
My favorite was the last show I attended – menswear line Sise by Seishin Matsui. Which was also the night of the typhoon that made drinking Moscow Mules at the top level of the Cerulean a pretty surreal experience (see the photo that is second to last). Imagine an outdoor show at night in a stadium with torrential rain coming down on all sides lit by chandeliers that were good at swinging eerily. But anyway, if you want to re-learn how to style existing things in your wardrobe, look slightly Swedish, and wear pants in general you should watch this video. There’s an effortless look for everything here and yes I know that’s a curse word. See: blogger road trip desert edition and answering the door of your hotel room in Vegas anytime before 10am. If I haven’t convinced you yet, watch it for the song. Trust me it’s awesome. All 15 minutes of it.
Thank you so much for MBFWT and Murua for having me and I hope you guys enjoy the photos of one of my favorite cities!
新年一番、去年から２ヶ月も怠っていたポストから始めたいと思います。去年のうちからも東京のファッションウィークやコーディの写真をチラチラとインスタグラムで紹介していますが、このポストで全貌を見てくださったらと思っています。この数年数えきれないくらい日本に行きましたが、今回初めてメルセデスベンツの公式ファッションショーに参加させていただきました。日本のデザイナーの超ユニークなアプローチは世界にもまれなものです。A Degree Fahrenheit のショーはすべてタンジェリンオレンジの色彩で、Murua の幻想的なネバーランドはクリノリンのパレードでその効果抜群、Somarta の自然色の着物風ドレスは きれいな流水線で完璧なショーにおさまっていました。
