I got it at Urban Outfitters (online) – it’s sold out now though
RADDDD this makes me so happy I want to cry
Hahhaha AHHHH. Home gym. Chris built it out. I flail around to Tracy Anderson videos in there on the reg.
No, there’s literally no trace of them online. As far as I can tell. I got them September 2013 at the NYC store.
Wait there are so many black tops from Snapchat. Everything’s tagged on my insta!
YES we’re so excited to release it. She wears it so well it like gives me chills.
Ahaha Alexander Wang chenille cropped sweater, high waisted black mini, Sonia Rykiel grandpa robe coat thing, Balenciaga oxfords, some sort of smirk
We’ve been friends online on email etc for like 7 years and finally met last spring. We’re too excited around each other it’s like feral animal status every second.
It’s just everything I want to wear hahaa thank you though, that’s an incredible thing to hear.
AYAI development sample 😀
TY SO MUCH
Coins give me anxiety and I try to avoid them entirely. The ones I get stuck with I put in this Goyard pouch I tote around on occasion.
THAT WAS ME. I lost my last one like a mindless monster person. Just replaced it with this one – http://www.net-a-porter.com/product/532697/Balenciaga/textured-leather-cardholder
Today I’m wearing Becca shimmering skin perfector in rose gold and moonstone. Thank you!
Vita Fede!! I love it.
Hahha don’t cry! Crying makes it so hard to breathe.
We met when I was in Paris for the Isabel Marant x H&M launch. He was living there at the time and we were sitting at the same restaurant – I was traveling alone and vulnerable haha. We spent every second of my three day trip together and then he came to LA a few weeks later and then we realized we wanted to spend every second together always. It’s like nothing else, being with him. The most natural, raw, magnetic thing. Every single day I’m thankful that I get to love someone this much and be this loved.
It’s pretty dumb yeah hahah. I’ve been on there for like 2 years but just starting to use Stories. Same handle as everywhere else @rumineely!
I just binged on The Container Store like an hour ago and the last thing she scanned was…an acrylic magazine rack? I’m so fun on a Sunday.
Chris got that for me! It’s from Urban Outfitters, think it’s still avail.
Fabric comb = foreign concept to me but this is probably one of those things I’m unaware of to the detriment of me and everyone around me
Carbon and Hyde! So into them.
I’ve had it forEVER, I used it that whole summer of the Isabel Marant pink short. It’s by Marant too. I just love how thick and plain it is but belts are also one of the best things you can buy thrifted/vintage cause most secondhand stores have a huge selection so you can find the perfect beaten up one.
They’re by Redone! The high waisted short.
Whoa thank you!!! I love it too, heavy silk is heaven. No plans for mustard at the moment but developing a style right now that you will die for if you love the Kaede.
Not super matte but more matte than not. I think there’s only one version?
SAME so I made them
L to R: Cartier, Cartier, Shashi, Bijules, Gabriela Artigas, Cartier
DvF! Actually still available at Matches.
I’ve migrated for now, just haven’t been in the mood for that crunchiness. Just putting some Shu Uemura Essence Absolue in it when it’s wet, blow drying it when it’s half done air drying, two mini buns, and then a dramatic shakeout. Kinda into the Byredo hair perfume lately, I have it in Blanche. Still looking for the perfect shampoo, how can this be.
No you didn’t! Kaede will be restocked in white and available in blush in about two weeks. I’m so excited for blush covered buttons!
Hi they’re Saint Laurent, purchased in January
Like Target or Amazon, just got the biggest one and made Chris hold it taut while I staple gunned his fingers to it almost. That was a fun night.
Tried them on. Twice I think. Didn’t feel totally perfect on me. But the ad campaign images omfg.
Actually SUEDE and they are on my person right now. We’re going to offer them in both suede and the hornback embossed leather.
Haha gross but yes love a rosé or a Sancerre and crave guacamole regularly. Wanted to make some a little while ago but my avocado was overripe. Whimper.
Armani Luminous Silk foundation, Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow (just glow though), Stila liner, Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon in Bronzed Garnet underneath the eye
It’s by Hortense, they carry her things at Mohawk General in Silverlake.
If you don’t even worry that he’s not.
Biafine but that’s an annoying answer cause it’s only available in France. My very wise friend Lauren who just purged her beauty regime of all gross chemicals recommends Burt’s Bees Day Lotion which is SPF 30.
This week. They just need to be shot for the site!
Coming! I have some very specific triangle bra dreams to realize.
I know, super cute.
MAC – Velvet Teddy
Going through a lipstick and highlighter phase rn, it’s fun.
Tie between Natasha Poly and Rosie
A black bag might not be the best but there are always exceptions to what “works”. Maybe get one of those Clare Vivier or American Apparel leather pouches in a more neutral color? Although tbh your date like really won’t be checking out your clutch. Hope you have a fun time!
Hahhah I feel like it would catch me off guard every time I turned around, forever. So stunning.
Chloé Faye!! Fyeayfayefayefyaeyfayeyyfeye
I love the small one in black or whisky or blush, the larger one in whisky or mustard.
Ty! They’re Gianvito Rossi, the exact ones are in my Whowhatwear article!
I CAN’T BELIEVE YOU FOUND THOSE
I love the dark green but if you feel like you’ll wear them, totally doesn’t hurt to have two color options!
What a food trio! Right now I love crispy branzino, any mushroom served hot, orange carrot ginger juice, coconut kefir blended into smoothies, roasted carrots, huge chopped salads, frozen berries in granola, pea shoots, Sugarfish, and matcha anything!
Me it’s awful I’m so scared of getting haircuts. You can tell sometimes from the back ahaha it’s just randomized in a couple sections.
Pls talk to me
This sounds like YES. Email me please email@example.com, can’t wait to hear more!
By this weekend! Super soon. Hang tight.
It’s cute! I see it with denim shorts or leather trousers fireside somewhere off the grid in Colorado, maybe a deer looking through the window.
Hi! Can’t wait for you to have them, I hope they make getting dressed both easier and more exciting. The black is about to go into production, rough estimate 2-3 weeks!
Beautiful in a striking way, thoughtful, at once full of energy but also super chill to do nothing with anywhere. Total freaking weirdo in the same ways I am. Has insightful things to say constantly, references are all over the place. She’s actually like nobody else.
They’re by Diesel from a few seasons ago! I wore them when I first got them and forgot about them and now they’re back. V aggressive square toe. Like couldn’t get more 90s.
Yes it will, this month. There’s one XS available on the site right now!
Have it, love it, need to dig around for it
Like literally will be avail within 24 hours! Keep checking the insta for updates
Yes! I just used it tonight.
SO HAPPY YOU’RE HAPPY!
Yes! Mustard is next.
Thank you! I really wanted to make things that you can love forever or at least a really long time. The pink wall is the infamous Paul Smith wall on Melrose.
Did NOT know. Such kell information.
They’re all one offs or vintage on their site – if you want a similar one go to the overdyed category and filter by color to ivory/tan.
I know!! So cool
A bottle of Healthade like every day. I crave it. Kinda scary.
It’s like literally crocodile so would be crazy to produce for us rn, but we’re thinking about doing custom orders for them cause there’s been a lot of interest. It’s the same cut as the Kell mini so if that style works for you then it’s something that can be discussed!
Side table is from Urban Outfitters, rug from Kilim.com
Hi! It’s Isabel Marant, the same one I’ve had since 2011.
Not horribly, about the regular amount that heels do. Nothing is binding or chafing.
I haven’t really been shopping that much, it’s kind of weird when you’re focused on making the perfect whatever. Not to sound crazy or evil but after wearing AYAI all the time, everything else feels so scratchy. Here’s a random mix of things I’ve gotten recently.
MAC Cremestick Liner in Sublime Culture
NARS Bronzing Powder in Irresistiblement
Brandy Melville Willow tank
Isabel Marant feather cuff
Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses Rosewater Mask
Citizens of Humanity cashmere thermal
Menu & Andreas Engesvik’s Chunk of Marble Candleholder
Revisit Products iPhone 6 Plus Case
Jerome Dreyfus Embellished Bobi suede shoulder bag
i want pics *cries*
Those are the high waisted. They’re pretty low in stock right now but that’s because they are next level perfect.
Yes! So cute.
Pretty soon! It’s almost approved for production. Just being a maniac with the details.
Hi! I haven’t been to your country in a while. But it’s so nice. And I LOVE LA, I’m so happy here. It makes me feel excited and inspired and dreamy and connected and warm and I’m so thankful to be able to live here with the love of my life. Even though it’s really windy at night sometimes and I go through sunscreen at the same rate I do almond milk.
They didn’t! For the first time in so long.
are you mad
Hey! That’s a long time, thank you for being the best kind of follower! The iPhone case is by Revisit, I got it downtown at Alchemy Works. It’s so pretty I want to cry. Also it screws in and doesn’t really provide much protection. Those are all the main features.
They’re honestly all amazing, I have every nongreen nonpurple one. Champagne diamonds is good for inner corners, if you like Amber Haze though I would try Dark Pearl or Golden Quartz.
Working on it!
Right now the only brick and mortar shop that carries it is Satine, at both their 3rd Street and Venice locations. I hope you can make it to one of them!
Just Rêve de Miel
I love that tank on her!
He’s a little king and he’s more cuddly than ever and his coat is looking magnificent.
Hmmm Goldie’s, Terroni, Go Get Em Tiger, The Polo Lounge at The Beverly Hills Hotel, Cafe Gratitude, Sqirl, Little Next Door, Soho House, Kreation, Erewhon, my kitchen. Yeah!
What happened to Amazon Collections?? That was my true calling and now it’s just dead.
? They totally do have the same raw edges.
I have the Mat Workout DVD and the Omnicentric Metamorphosis set. I’ve also been to their Studio City location which was amazing but a little bit of a trek. I like her workout style cause it’s hard to get bored of!
Yeah! Silk twill, it’s amazing.
Good question but no, the embossing is really, really embedded and strong. The texture of it in real life is crazy. And so fun to run your hands up and down.
heart heart heart
I kinda stopped Pilatesing, it was so easy before cause I lived practically next door to my studio. But Chris and I had this beautiful gym built out above our garage and I’ve just been doing stuff in there, mostly Tracy Anderson vids. So I do that every day now instead.
No I think that would be such a pretty thing for you to wear. It’s not PINK pink, it’s Sahara/cuticle/cashew strawberry vegan milkshake/some sunsets. Does that help?
Hi you are so polite?! They’re both AYAI, fit sample stage pieces. Hope to get them nailed and ready to produce soon!
I don’t care about that like AT ALL. I don’t wanna factor in other people’s regular into my regular, in that particular category of life. But yeah even though I’m in dresses etc a lot I feel like I can run and jump and climb and actually feel really casual in them in my brain.
lol just capering around
Rn Sweet Rose iced almond milk latte/green apple lemon ginger spinach juice/Campari Spritz
Wait what that’s so funny and pointless. I’m team red either way.
This makes it all worth it wow. Thank you.
I’m basically the XS fit model for every piece, if that helps as a reference. So yes I’m wearing the XS Delphine
They’re by Kahlo! Diaper vibes but still love.
Cool cool, solid cart. I really don’t think you should size up for length, you can adjust to a good place with the straps and it’s pre-oversized. Get a small and if anything decide the next move from there but I really think it’ll be long enough! xx
The macro is a little more intense of a look – based on that decide which one you’d get more use out of. Or order both and return one!
The Jonquil is sheer, but not to an extreme degree. The silk is kind of dense and it has a mesh look to it close up. I totally get the slightly oversized thing, I would get a small if that’s how you want to wear it!
Yeah I’m incapable of maintaining a normal manicure so I’ve been doing gels the past few months.
You will love the fit it is actually perfect. The length for a size small is 13″ in front and 13.5″ in back. Let me know if you need measurements for another size!
Both but get black first!
Hi! The lace up leather shorts are still TBA and the Zillah in blush and silver will be available early next week. The black Zillahs will be restocked as well in XS and S. Finally!
No drastic issues with sweatpants a la Mendes who is a hot topic in Ask Rumi lately but yeah not those. I have like little house uniforms that fade in and out of use. This exact moment it’s AYAI lace up leather shorts which I’m wearing to vacuum and organize, this week it’s been this distressed Iro bodysuit I’ve had forever and just “found” in a box. I answer the door a lot in the Zillah dress cause it’s the easiest thing to literally throw on. Sometimes the Ceven tank and yoga shorts so I can transition to working out easily, sometimes the Calvin Klein modern cotton set cause I have a billion of those. Yeah.
It’s so weird, he just gets it. I mean I kinda just taught him how my camera worked about a year ago now and he started to play around with it in different ways. He can set up a flash a thousand times better than I can and it’s crazy now, he tells me what to do and where to stand and all that and I just trust him. We both throw out ideas on where to shoot – I think one of the most important things with photography is to just try wherever without too much judgment beforehand until you like what you’re doing.
Middle is EF Collection (but it just broke yday CRY) and the index is by Hortense, whose pieces I love.
Thank you!! It’s been halfway between my brain and reality for the past YEAR and finally ready and avail. So amazing worn over the Zillah!
Veer smaller, it’s pre-oversized. Pull away!
Totally ridiculous but have still tried #snippersanonymous
Minimal nude sandal, black ankle boot of most types especially combat, dirty white sneakers, umm wait why do you feel like it’s so limited? These are the ones that are the most obvious to me but I think you can get however crazy you want.
Hahhaha yes she’s not boring though
Café Pinson! Especially the lounging part. And matcha options!
It’s by Hanka In, I got it in Paris last September at a shop in Le Marais. I don’t remember what it’s called but it’s basically in between Vanessa Bruno and Rose Bakery.
It’s from Kitson hahahaha I got it when I was in Santa Barbara in Dec
Hi it’s still in the sampling stage, trying to get it totally perf for you guys. Will fit another sample this week and hopefully will be able to approve it for production soon! Basically no solid date exists right now.
Hhahahhahah heart heart heart
Hi! There you are. Thank you so much, glad to be different in your eyes.
You do! Perfect modern chill girl wardrobe. Makes life so much easier.
5 left 2 right
Whoa there are like 30 questions in a row about this. This is just what the Barney’s sales floor guy told me last week, that they’re a Nicolas thing not an Alex thing so…yeah.
Vanessa Bruno cutout moccasins in white
Err I have both versions gold/silver and gunmetal/silver also while on this topic kinda freaking out that they’re being discontinued.
Beige like me hehehehe or black not gray though
What I do when they’re being painful again for whatever reason is put them on the loosest buckle setting so they don’t rub. And be patient and brave. And use those bandaids that are more like fabric than a sticker.
I’ve stepped away from the surf sprays of the world, I love the effect but using them all the time was damaging my hair. That thing where you have one large surf spray dreadlock to brush out before stepping in the shower was not sustainable.
Lol I miss blogspot
I kinda hate that too. Nude!
That dress is completely impossibly beautiful, I touched it in Paris to make sure and yup it is. I love the idea of going Chloéish for a wedding dress, especially if you’re going to be in a forest or a field. I don’t have anything perfect to suggest to you casually but this is a good direction!
Well I wish but I lost the charger so it’s been a couple weeks.
AM: shower, Thayers rosewater witch hazel or Bioderma Crealine, iS Clinical Hydra-cool or Active serum, Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream, Biafine SPF30, Biafine body cream on arms and legs
PM: witch hazel/Crealine again or actually washing my face, rn it’s Drunk Elephant’s Juju Bar (REAL NAME OF A THING), iS serum again, moisturizer or an oil which rn is Creme de la Mer/Clarins Lotus Face Treatment Oil but I switch all the time
Leaving tomorrow afternoon!
Hahha hi also it’s not completely sheer at all, it’s a pretty thick linen and the drape of it feels substantial, like it weighs itself down if that makes sense. I’m gonna say it’s a 6.8.
Yeah and apparently being walkable and wearable is one of her design philosophies. Pretty cool.
Hi! They’re the Corey in Bourbon.
Just that their mouthwash is life – clove bud, aniseed, spearmint leaf, perfect. Tastes medieval in the good way.
This bra or no bra thing wow. So many feelings. But yes a lot of the AYAI pieces present you with that choice. SO what I’m in the final stages of doing is creating the perfect skimpy lace triangle bra as a direct fix and also considering adding a box of Nippies brand pasties to every Zillah shipment hahahah joking kinda not joking.
I know he’s my hero it makes me want to cry.
It’s pretty low in the back, yeah. So excited about this piece!
Thank you! It was so nice to be back in SD, it’s so wild and full of beautiful spots with no one in them.
Trying!! It’s rather close!!
HAVE YOU SEEN THIS
What is even safe
And no I have a Blendtec
Future ARE YOU AM I. Will become linen ambassador.
Do i repot it? But part of the appeal is the glass prison it resides in?
Answer yes I carry it around, comes right after iPhone keys and card case in priority list.
It’s SUCH a good beigey mousey zombie color. I recommend.
I’ve been going with this bowl concept HARD. So it has like a few elements going on. I’ll do quinoa/miso/red pepper as the base, kale massaged with olive oil and avocado and sprinkled with pink salt, cherry tomatoes with balsamic vinegar olive oil and dill, roasted potatoes or yams cut up pretty thin with black pepper, spicy kimchee, and maybe some nutritional yeast on top. This is quite well received by Chris, especially the section that looks like fries.
Breakfast I’m doing green juice or strawberry smoothies rn, and I got a Breville espresso machine that kinda changed my life. Sometimes I’ll soak oats and chia seeds overnight in almond milk and then blend them (not too much, just pulses) with green apple slices to make muesli. Very topping-friendly.
Outside of the house…the branzino and Golden Girl at Goldie’s, Cafe Gratitude always, Littlefork for a cute casual but not dinner, Blue Bottle Coffee, Bar Ama downtown, Sqirl towards Silverlake, then in New York I’m obsessed with Ruby’s and Dudley’s!
Lol when are you avail and Erewhon Market
Whoa thank you
By Terry Baume de Rose, this is the one I try to apply right before shooting, the sheen is just ideal. That’s like, it. Sometimes at night I’ll do Charlotte Tilbury’s in Nude Kate.
I’m so glad we got to spend time together last week, he is a forever person for me.
I get it but color struggle is such an exciting problem for me to have! People think I’m anti-color and I’m not, I’m just really specific about how I want it to be done. So this feels like salvation. So now the versus. Blush is super pretty, literally the perfect not too pink not too taupe shade. With tan suede boots and a button down shirt over it, casual look is done. Silver is something else, it’s really striking and a little more crazy. It’s rendered in the same heavy charmeuse and silk lining as the white version, but we added the silver lurex layer on top of that so it’s three layers deep. It’s seriously so sexy and so simple and so, so Kate. I want to wear it with combat boots at Coachella in her honor.
We ship everywhere! We can help you! I promise.
Yes I’ve seen it! The pieces can work for a lot of different body types. If you have fit questions about specific pieces just email me firstname.lastname@example.org
Yes and no can you send me pics if you end up doing stuff
Laurence Dacade Deric. And just got the Marant Barts eeee
Like not even slightly does that mean I’m crazy
Depends on your pocket girth and how secret you want your texts to be from the world. I’m plus and all other phone sizes look insufficient to me now but, also, it is comically large and an invitation to basically everyone around you to comment on it.
Fled to the hills!
Rn using Malin & Goetz peppermint shampoo, Arvazallia hair mask (I practically drink conditioner, alway have), Shu Uemura Essence Absolue Camellia Oil (this whole line is perfect), Klorane leave-in cream with mango butter sometimes. That’s it!
Veering Tilbury really hard. So smoldery. And the colors are so jewel tone without being cheesy. Basically the impossible was achieved.
The ivory one is the Malibu sofa by Jonathan Adler
SAME. I so wanna see photos of how you barely changed clothes!
Think of it as a full meal, one that contains biodynamic fairy elixir and fourth dimension extract. Suddenly not totally unreasonable!
XS or S. It was designed to fit gigantically, I think.
No turquoise but maybe I need to get that crazy for the next one??! It’s the usual Stila liquid liner and heavy handed mascara but I was going really nuts with the Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon, I think in Amber Haze. Above and below the eye. Literally own every single color of these pencils because they are life and I am crazy.
Yes on Sunday. The one where it’s 3 degrees at night. Yeah.
I MISS TOO LONG HAIR
It’s from Monki! Monki is a Swedish brand. Monki is cool.
I’m going in June
Being embarrassed is such a waste of time! In general!
On in the out in the open blog photo shoot situation embarrassment – you’re never going to see those people again, you’ll probably make them smile in the sweet way if they even care enough to notice, and we’re living in a time when people from every category of life might be seen with a selfie stick.
Dre. Also have/love the Dre boyfriend cut.
Scared = going to be able to get dressed very easily from now on
Devil may care attitude. Occasionally put a couple pasties to use. “Nippies” are the nice ones.
STILL WITH EVERYTHING.
It defies logic.
They’re so comfortable and I wore them for 5 days straight as soon as that was a life option and they go with everything.
No but this question makes me feel anxious like that’s something I’m behind on. Actually the oxford pair really need it. Ahhh.
i used it yesterday even
Balenciaga – sunglasses are way too easy to pulverize/lose/mistake for other quality levels of sunglasses. Navy/silver sounds amazing!! Frisson.
NICE. I love them obv but still have boxes to unpack from the move and haven’t seen 75% of my eyewear collection or my Zanotti combat boots or my Céline patent mud colored flatforms or my stash of weird Japanese beauty products. Must persevere because my closet is finally done and that’s a whole thing too. I’m so glad you’re enjoying their massiveness!
Hi!! It’s gold.
The artichoke oysters!!! They make no sense and are probably impossibly to recreate at home. Kale caesar is one of my favorite kale salads in this city, crabcakes creepily realistic. But also be brave because everything on the menu is most likely perfect. Side note helpful to love mushrooms, in life and at this restaurant.
Now I wanna go there immediately ugh.
Tangly, always getting in my mouth. Coming up on a year since someone that isn’t me last cut it. Has a passionate thirst for Arvazallia conditioner and going through a experimental phase with Serge Normant Meta Sheer Dry Oil Finishing Spray. The color brown.
Def going and working on easy comfortable and perfect AYAI options..wanna hook you guys and myself up cause those threeish outfits just matter too much. More on that soon. Congratulations on your first Coachella tickets!
HUGE DEAL THAT YOU SCROUNGED THESE UP.
I found they ran a little big if anything, mine are a 37 and I’m usually a 37.5 or 38. So you should be totally set with the 5. And for the level of beauty they possess, they are basically a sneaker.
Hope that helps!
Working on this! And not a pop up. Just might happen in New York before LA.
Maybe it’s the Silverlake-ishness haha
XS and I was wearing a CK bra and Kahlo high waisted shorts under it. Totally my favorite from the collection.
Oh. I just picture stamping around in puddles and bouncing off stuff. I’ll make sure to use it extra starting tomorrow though cause going there!
I hope they make it to you! Merry Christmas xoxo
Hahaha aww. Are you probably stuck because of the snowstorm too?
RMS Living Luminizer, sometimes the Dolce & Gabbana Mono Cream Eyeshadow in “Innocence”.
Thank you!! So excited for you to receive the pieces!! SO AWESOME THIS IS. xxx
Mittens from the ski lift shop cause I dropped mine mid-lift ride taking a selfie (LOSER), jacket Bogner, goggles Anon M2s, pants All Sport Austria.
Marble ring holder West Elm, terrarium Rolling Greens on Beverly Blvd.
Stuart Weitzman. Haven’t found anything better yet! OTK boots are such fit drama.
Wait how could I possibly blaspheme in such a fashion or you want a cobbler rec? Trying here.
My eyes are big red hearts rn
Everything is produced and manufactured in downtown LA and once ready for purchase it’s sent to a fulfillment center in Michigan to be packed and shipped to you guys.
Target. We got like fifty of them in one go.
Apparently cause I’m on right now hehehehe
James Perse blanket cardigan. So safe in that thing.
Wow thank you! That’s such a nice thing to say.
Hi! Thank you! Kaede camisole is super pretty, just try to estimate which color you would wear more often! I like it a couple buttons undone at the top and bottom.
Can we do lip product? Cause it’s the Baume de Rose from By Terry.
Ah love the triad reference, and yeah there’s a simple cotton tank already in the works sort of in that vein.
Whoa. Ok. Thanks for the reminder.
Wang I’ve had it forEVS
Hehe thank you! Real myth. I’m going to use that. The unicorn top is from Wildfox and YES I have the matching shorts.
We’re still in the process of making it perfect but yes cool it’s a favorite. Silk twill is fun. It’s basically tie material which I find GREAT.
COS!! This one this one this one
Fall 2014! It’s actually breathtaking.
I think I would go the really clean and sleek route, one of my favorite wedding looks is Carolyn Bessette Kennedy (RIP) in Narciso Rodriguez. And this is random but the first thing I thought when I saw this dress was that it would be such a perfect wedding dress – http://www.net-a-porter.com/product/465644/Derek_Lam/beaded-cutout-satin-gown#
Aww. Hi! You should have said it then too!
I’m just now getting into Byredo Gypsy Water. I’m not really a perfume freak though. It barely occurs to me that it exists most of the time.
Thanks for coming here and making this a fun interactive and utterly weird space! It’s cool for me too.
Went for the public answer. Those are cool! Anja Rubik has really good taste.
Don’t let what seems to be normal make you feel left out. Seriously, being embarrassed, having the assumption that you’re “left out”, and not going for that job/outfit/guy/pet will just lead to your life becoming less and less what you could have and deserve. Find your own normal, create your fashion/beauty angle on instinct and not trend, and use the crap out of your strengths until good outcomes lead to more good outcomes forever.
Thank you for the congratulations and also for saying what you think! I get the whole “style steal” angle but I went the route of “wear the exact same thing as”. I know what I like and I want to be 100% happy and proud that ARE YOU AM I is exactly what I want to and will wear myself. Because we’re selling directly from our own site, we’re able to offer high quality luxurious pieces at a really competitive price for what they are! And I’ve alway been of the mind that paying a little more for something that you treasure, actually let’s say really fucking love is more fulfilling and cheaper in the long run than buying a ton of things you’re semi-into. These aren’t pieces you’re going to wear a couple times and forget about. I promise.
That choker is by By Boe. Really special.
Hahhaha I love that. Thank you for the commitment levels.
Design Mix furniture on La Brea. Which is also a good source for petrified wood side tables.
THANK YOU THIS IS SUCH A CRAZY FEELING I WANT TO BOTTLE IT
Congratulations on new momhood! Glad you enjoyed reading the rambly descriptions and nice AYAI choices. They look really good together!
Yayyyyy me toooo xx
Hi! Solid questions. Both are in the final stages of sampling and will hit the store as soon as they’re ready!
Hahha it’s fun describing things when you know exactly why they were created. The names are things that have stood out to me throughout the course of my life, from fairy tales to video games and irl stories about people I don’t know. They seemed to fit.
XS!! Yayyy do ittttt xx
Ahh sorry! I’m talking to a sleeping person right now. See you in the morning!!
I feel like I might answer this question differently depending on what hour it is so don’t hate me but I think it would be the Zillah in white. It’s just the perfect version of itself.
Yeah! I’ll be there on Saturday from 1-4. Was just about to announce that fact haha. You’re on it.
Thank you! I’m so nervous and excited and scrambly today!!
YES. That is completely the plan. And things to carry your stuff in and bits of jewelry and sunglasses and blankets and etc etc the end. Hopefully.
The other little hoops I always wear are by her too.
Melissa Joy Manning ear festival!
Hmmmm yeah they’re pretty hidebound. I see what you mean. They aren’t a go-to, for sure. That collection though I just needed to fuse my soul with it.
It’s the coolest thing close up – the textile against the sleek frame is really special. At St. Frank by Johanna Bramble.
Everything is produced in downtown LA. And Friday.
3 days! THREE DAYS. 3 3 3 33 3 3 3 3 3 33
We’re getting there! The main problem is that thing where furniture takes 4 months to arrive so basically ten thousand years. So our living room sofa still isn’t here and shades for basically floor to ceiling windows in our bedroom don’t exist yet #blinded #blindless and there’s a totally daunting list of things we want to get to but the Are You Am I launch is also all that matters right now. So it’s going to be a little while longer. We both have sort of strong preferences and angles but somehow agree on 98% of it so it’s been a lot of fun putting the rooms together. We had our bed custom made and are super happy with it and next up is designing my closet!
LAUNCHING FRIDAY!! xoxoxoxoxoox/ahhhhhhhhh
No scary weird problems but yeah it’s definitely a process. I just think of it as breaking the ear’s spirit to accept that this is how it is. I think we’re almost there.
I haven’t seen anything comparable cause what makes them so good is how delicate and thin they are. They’re by Melissa Joy Manning.
SAME. I think I gave Chris a heart attack that day.
It’s the Malibu sofa by Jonathan Adler and one of the top 3 most comfortable surfaces in our house. Good for snuggling.
Heck yes. Be around in early December.
Nice deep v roundup! No more medium vs!
Hi! Ok I got the coat at the new COS store in Beverly Hills, tshirt is Are You Am I, skirt Isabel Marant, espadrilles Céline, and bag is Cosima by Mezzi.
Always dreaming of pastel hair
Are You Am I! Had to do my own oversized deep armhole tank. It’s 100% linen, sheer but thick, and has a center seam down the back that makes everything better.
Hi they’re Proenza Schouler
This is so late but yes I did! She went through so much stuff!
Water or (nongross) coconut water, organic almonds, vanilla bean powder, Himalayan sea salt, almond extract, stevia maybe. I want to try sweetening it with dates. I think that’s my future.
It’s faux and by Christopher Braeburn. Koala size texture and color. I love it so.
Denim shorts, loose silk button down worn semi open, leather belt, ankle boots, messy bun, and duffle bag.
Both. I do my hair slightly did differently every day. Which you can probably tell.
I think it’s ivory but also I think I lost it. I never lose my Wang! Horrible.
It’s by Jonathan Adler – the Malibu sofa
For Love and Lemons
Hi. Ok. Will take photos. Soon.
New things I’ve been loving lately – Sunday Riley’s Good Genes, Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic Cream, Dolce & Gabbana Mono Cream Eyeshadow, By Terry Rose Balm for a hint of pink, oh and I’m back on the UD Naked palette, the basic one that isn’t the size of a windshield.
Only when it’s like right there. However I exfoliate maniacally and regularly with a Clarisonic and Baiden mitten in the shower, to a point of rawness where people ask me if I’m ok. I usually am.
Etsy – look up pressed flower iPhone case
My favorite ones have always been vintage but I designed THE perfect one for Are You Am I. It’s so pretty and languid in vibe and made of really heavy silk charmeuse and all the details are just weird enough. Like I honestly think you’ll love it especially cause you cared enough to ask this.
Nice! Good luck
Not pointedly but it can be kind of banana sometimes as in just overpowering.
We’re not moving in for a couple weeks! Will share as it becomes more home-like!
I have the craziest Bayne item <3
ilthis. I’m gonna help us.
Hi. Ok. Pamela Love five spike earring, rose gold hoops and studs from my piercing place on Sunset, Cartier Juste Un Clou, Hilary Beane studded bracelets, Jennifer Zeuner cuff.
Thank you! xx
Hi! Thank you for joining us. Um ok that bag/bagmuff/muff I’ve had forever, it’s by Theory and even as I type this it’s a comforting 4 feet away.
Yeah especially when I travel it’s almost the only way. Gelling right now even.
I know same, it’s by a brand called Kiini. Their shop is online. Good luck trying to choose from all the beautiful color ways :/
The essence of life? I don’t know offhand but basically everything good.
edit: ok you asking this made me need to eat it today and I can now tell you EVERYTHING.
Spirulina, chlorella, barley grass, maca, mesquite, tocotrienols, xylitol, almond butter, pumpking seed oil, stevia, cinnamon, and bee pollen.
‘cept I got no cinnamon and added cacao nibs.
I did a good job on this question!
#einsteinsofstarbucksofinstagram, watercress, this one vegan ice cream place in Venice that I’ve never been to, Zana Bayne, Dolce & Gabbana Perfect Mono eyeshadow, and moving into my dream home with my dream man next month.
I haven’t had it colored for a while! It’s just natural. For now.
Burgundy, just a really dark burgundy though.
Probably for the rest of this year at least.
We’re working on having it be able to ship internationally upon launch, if not then it’ll be soon after.
Bar Amá, Juice Crafters, G&B Coffee, The Ace rooftop, Terroni, Bestia….is the Acne store an activity?
The My Little Steamer Go Mini®
It’s only available at Neiman Marcus I think! Trying to double check that.
Heheh I had that realization when I was about 8 and we were all figuring out what our names were spelled out backwards. Then I spelled it out forwards out loud. Finally, it’s useful.
It’s by Vanessa Bruno – I bought it in Paris in January.
Blendtec, Amazon. I buy lids for them on there too. Life changing.
I mean it’s not life changing but the pieces can be worn separately which is nice. It’s so comfortable for slugging around in. That’s the main appeal.
Half Moon Crest from Benjamin Moore
I just walk around absorbing things all the time so no, not self-sufficient. That would be a weird way to be. I go through phases of being obsessed with whatever randomness. Right now it’s this Tumblr – http://whyyte.tumblr.com and elastic and Taylor Marie Hill’s face and chokers.
Yes it is, you crazy sleuth. This website omg.
It’s basically my perfect wardrobe. That’s the concept. Basic tshirts and tanks that feel like nothingness of cloud particle on the skin, lingerie-inspired pieces for outdoor use in beautiful heavy silks, actual lingerie, the perfect leather skirt, the perfect crazy leather skirt, structured tops that go with everything, simple everyday dresses, and so on. Pricing will be contemporary-ish. The goal is to provide a complete closet of staples and statement pieces for someone that lives sort of close to the ocean, wants really special details that you have to look closer to see, and wants to dress casually most of the time but also look super hot in an unexpected kind of random way. Yep. Concept.
Ahahahha that gave me a heart attack and was so cute – hi!
Denim shorts, your favorite shoulder bag, light dresses, jeans, couple weird fun sweaters, plain tshirts and tanks, a leather skirt, suede ankle boots, some kind of heavier black boot, biker jacket, coat you can throw on over anything (this is usually some kind of wool robe for me), and space to buy cool stuff while you’re here! The weather is so all over the place, super hot in the middle of the day and totally in need of a good external layer at night or on the westside so you have to kind of be able to configure accordingly. I THINK it’s going to be really hot when you’re here but options are good.
Not obsessed. COS has something similar and kind of cleaner. But I’m sure it could be a useful piece!
It’s totally too big. But I could never go back. Resisting and being scared are both very valid.
MY OWN BRAND. I’m so excited I don’t know what to do with myself and it’s all I want to wear and I’m being so picky with every single button and fabric weight and it all feels so good on and I can’t wait to show you everything. I’ve been working on this all year and it’s been such an crazy experience. Not too much longer now.
Pascale Monvoisin from Merci in Le Marais which has so much weird cool jewelry that it is actually evil. I only see the earring version online. Hmm. Here though – http://pascalemonvoisin.com/eshop/fr/boucles-doreilles/127-boucles-doreilles-pink-sand-corail.html
It’s really not but I would endure inch thick layers of Kumo excess to hang out with him.
Just got home from downtown and rolling around in sweater onesie.
Aww cool! I love that!
Absolute favorite right now is Crossroads on Melrose, it’s completely vegan done by Tal Ronnen. Artichoke oysters and kale caesar are so nice. I want them now! What else…Little Door, Little Next Door, Sycamore Kitchen, Go Get Em Tiger and Sweet Rose for almond milk lattes, Eveleigh, Acabar, and Chateau for atmosphere, Goldie’s for a more casual dinner with lots of vegetable options. That should keep you busy, I could go on for miles. MILES.
I love that thing so much I have to put temporary bans of myself from wearing it. It’s from By Boe, the designer is married to video guy I worked with a while ago so that’s the random way I was introduced to it. She does good rings under her other line Inez as well. Anyway here’s the link which is all that really matters – https://www.byboe.com/byboe/necklaces/gf-frame-bow-choker.html
Haha insty. Um they’re all real actually! Since Saturday night.
I do most of the time (maybe?) but that jumpsuit/top combo is by Black Crane – http://totokaelo.com/black-crane/double-jumper/black/L149C9
I have Moleskine fantasies for myself but Evernote is the only one I use consistently. And Google Calendar of course.
If you’re a half size definitely size up! And people are always wondering how to not have their ankle flesh torn apart – it helps to keep them buckled at the loosest setting even if you can cinch them tighter.
Just Paris this year!
I never really saw it anywhere except for in store in Soho in February, which is exactly when and where I got it. I find it so special.
NOOOOOOOO please no
Totally different for every trip but when I’m going to Tokyo I try to make it so I land at 4/5 so I get to the hotel at 7/8 then I’m so tired I just die slightly and then I’m fine the next morning.
Totally do sometimes. In continuous shock that we only get to be one person while on this planet. Doesn’t seem comprehensive enough, or even comprehensive at all. But all the weird stuff wrong with one person is just distributed differently on another. So mainly it’s best to accept and be happy and grateful and do the best you can in every moment, I think.
Want to wear them in the shower, at Pilates, in my sleep, etc etc
That dress is sweet! I’d do a cross body bag and ankle boots or sandals. I stopped by Ref today and got a couple things..
He changed his life for me. I’m really, really lucky.
I’m sure I’ll be back! So much fun the last time I was there with SS.
I’ll be there Friday!
CB2! Chris got it for me cause I chill with my laptop weird places. He calls it my cage cause I put my legs through it.
I LOVE THIS. I want to know which ones you chose!
I guess these are pretty high but I LOVE these – http://www.net-a-porter.com/product/462807/Aquazzura/-olivia-palermo-suede-ankle-boots
Need to think some more about this.
Thanks! The ivory one is the West Elm Souk Pouf (http://www.westelm.com/products/souk-pouf-t781/) and the silver one is actually from the souk in Marrakech.
Totally true to size, width seems normal too..maybe a little on the narrow side?
IT SEEMS IMPOSSIBLE I DON’T KNOW
You just communicated with my soul
It’s by Sophie Hulme – the box clutch
Dress Acne and shoes Chloé
Melissa Joy Manning
I don’t think so. But I live right by where I do everything and do whatever Waze tells me to and don’t try to go crazy places at crazy times. I actually can’t think of a worst part right now.
Alexander Wang trench.
Aww cool. Yay.
It’s from West Elm! I’m sure they still have it.
Proooooobably the Sufi poet but crazy. Did not know about this. Btw she is so lovely, I got to do an event with her in November and she’s this polite sweet intelligent bird-woman person.
I’d love to go but don’t have anything planned right now.
Greens – cilantro, arugula, spring mix combo
Non-greens non-dressings – 2 or 3 potato pieces, avocado, raw mushrooms
Dressing – olive oil, balsamic, little bit of basil almond, cayenne pepper, and sea salt
I could eat this salad 40 times a month. Probably have.
No. Becoming tan is never a goal of mine. I kind of never think about it.
Giorgio Armani and Koh Gen Do. And I like RMS Un-cover UP too to even things out on the go.
Neosporin’s cool but I like Biafine, which is the same but French basically. Be generous with the coconut oil and wear sunscreen almost always.
No, bloggers have a lot of meetings and fittings and general maintenance of all business relationships/projects. Each one takes a large chunk out of the day of course, and you frequently don’t really know what to expect from them. Taking this to a wider scope, bloggers obviously seem to have perfect lives but we’re probably living a lot less in some ways. You gotta feel for the blogger boyfriends too.
Ugh Chris had his first fashion blogger boyfriend nightmare a few nights ago. I’m not even going to try to recount it.
But yeah. We have a lot of meetings.
TWO YEARS MUNCH SCREAM FACE EMOJI
I’m so sorry.
I almost feel like you bought the wrong size.
You shouldn’t have to live like this.
I’m so sorry.
Maybe buckle them looser?
I really wish I could help you.
Keep as open of a mind as humanly possible. Try not to get frustrated with the lack of general interest in certain things and instead find that specific world online. Buy things from stalls maybe? Have some animal friends. And enjoy that beautiful, rare experience of being so free and so surrounded by like-minded individuals (as in you guys chose the same school) by making some friends for life. My time at university is something I look back on and cherish crazily. I even knew it when it was happening, that it was one going to end up being one of the best times of my life.
Coconut oil and Biafine.
I don’t get it either. Which is why I blame Chris. I sound like I’m joking but I’m not.
I like the look of it but I know I could never do it. Need a zipper that can be attacked while the bag is hanging on my arm.
Nope. Really, really didn’t.
Jello for my cello
It’s by Stone Cold Fox but I um cut the arm bits off of it. No one yell at me please thank you.
That flight to HK was one whole eternity long. Things I like to bring on flights lately: chia bars and prepackaged snacks from Erewhon, a couple apples, maybe an avocado, makeup remover sheets, Caudalie Beauty Elixir, iPad mini containing unlistened to podcasts within, Molami earbuds (they provide the converter so you can go dual prong if need be how cool is that), earPLUGS, some kind of facial oil (right now into Clarins Lotus and Earth Tu Face), Wisp pretend toothbrushes which are a basically a Mento presented on a handle with bristles around it, books and magazines in the number that I am willing to carry or make someone carry, goji berries, scarf/blanket, shorts to change into if I’m going somewhere hot, phone charging brick..ALL MUSTS.
It’s by Acne and it’s sheer enough to the point where I bought high waisted boy shorts from Urban today for next time. Search “Acne Paloma dress”.
got distracted but back
Yay an exuberant yay but only with simple clean lines. No layered sacks or statement dye processes.
I just got one but usually!
Hi it’s by Rory Beca! Shorts are SCF and bag Chloé.
You won’t regret this. That said, I have no special care tips. Wear them with everything! EVERYTHING.
Almond milk, ice, Body Ecology Vitality Super Greens powder, mesquite powder, stevia and tocos.
If you want to follow me down this dark path –
13 billion. Why?
And my favorite right now as in today basically is Iro’s Varya, it’s all destroyed and ground up at the edges.
Right now ’90s rap and melancholy anything. I need a new song to be obsessed with actually.
My friends and their extremely sweet siblings! He’s a popular little king of everything.
My mom is Japanese, dad’s from the south (Kentucky), I was born in California. My personality is an exact divide of the two as well.
Pilates by sososoososososo much. I never get tired of it. Once a flight got cancelled when I was already at LAX and I was back at the studio in under two hours. I’ve only tried one other place though in Marin and I hated it so it’s hit or miss finding instructors that inspire you, like any fitness activity.
Sorry I kept on meaning to this weekend but then I don’t even know. Back.
Haha thank you so much!
You have a vaguely aloof lack of punctuation
Clay ingesting balls are real. Might go the face mask or dinosaur paper weight route. If Chris hasn’t disposed of it while I was sleeping already.
We’re going to do more everything together. Probably going to muscle our way into the Youtube beauty business within the season. Sometimes we’ll mention our nonexistent book in an offhanded manner.
Thank you for excepting me. I myself consider it unforgivable as well but this is my cross to bear.
BIAFINE. God it was on Amazon a couple months ago but now nothing.
Sorry fixed it. Humiliated.
Only if you know what a fonut is.
They’re also very good violin players.
Hi there. Shortest to longest – Carla Caruso tiny square necklace, Jennifer Meyer clasp, and Balenciaga pendant.
The nudist you can do more with. Especially prioritize them if you don’t have that shoe silhouette already.
Cilantro, arugula, avocado, strawberries, and balsamic/olive oil/sea salt is the default. Also I’m going through a roasted carrot phase. Those need to be available everywhere.
Audrey cat eyes
Ahh that’s what she did to me and then we were
True to size and so beautiful irl. They’re this textured nude that I don’t see online or on Shopbop anyway.
Wait what did you think I would sound like? I can’t tell if my voice is high or low or other so I don’t even know how to take this.
I liked the liking too, we are trying to bring it to the table. Thank you for suggesting this! I like knowing what’s on your minds.
No actually, it’s just like that. A very aggressive silhouette on that one.
Some secondhand Brooklyn Nine Nine and “football”. S’about it.
Your daughter will be the best I’m sure of it. This is such a specific compliment though so thank you?!
It is! Homeoplasperfect. Sheen level on point.
I think it’s the Tom Ford bronzer in Golden as eyeshadow and actual bronzer, Stila eyeliner, Maybelline mascara, and a nude La Roche Posay Novalip Duo. That last thing I LOVE. Going to stock up next time I’m in Paris.
It’s actually by Amber Sceats! Aussie label carried at Tuchuzy which is such a good store in Bondi.
THAT HAPPENED TO ME IN SHANGHAI. With my Célines and they became different forever. Stiff and weirdly thickened. I was so convinced they were indestructible, I’ve been hiking through mud in Morocco with them even. But no. Not indestructible. I had to get a replacement pair.
Hi! It’s by Kain, the classic V-neck. I’m wearing it right now/still.
I like Lancome Bifacil, works with no struggle whatsoever but lately I just rub coconut oil all over my face which gets everything off and feels cool too.
I have a few pairs that are as ugly as Birkenstocks are but also several of the real thing! This might have made things confusing. I have the Marant Holdens, Chloé double buckles, black Gizehs, and two pairs of Arizonas (black leather, tan suede).
Working on the first two cause totally agree but third one. Hmm. Into.
It’s a delicate subject. He had gotten both of us England jerseys
But he’s not necessarily, like, surprised.
I know, sorry about the things that aren’t totally sorted out yet. Working on them. I’ve used the word alignment about a hundred times today.
Thanks. It felt like time.
I like it! We have a home now.
I’ve had a few seeress moments today. More than usual.
Today I woke up a little later than usual, nuzzled Chris a bunch, made some banana/almond butter rye toast type of thing while he watched the World Cup, worked on emails for future projects and technical blog stuff with my assistant for a couple hours, got my favorite coffee/juice/salad down the street, found out that there’s such a thing as hand crushing almonds when making milk from them to “preserve the essence of the nut”, went to the nail salon, drove east to tape an episode of Weird Adults with Little Esther which is my favorite ever podcast, made Esther give me a tour of her house and continued to start a best friendship with her, came home for a second, semi-confirmed Palm Springs for the 4th of July, realigned with Chris, looked at some houses online with him, shot ft stuff on Sunset, went to Ink for dinner, then came back home to do some more work/catching up. Now I’m almost done being awake.
It’s Japanese. Like this – 瑠美.
Whoa. NO. I swear on all four of my Balenciaga boot variants. No.
I do, something that is wrong with me is not being able to feel like the day has started and/or I am awake unless I douse my whole everything in water. I get lectured on how wrong of a way this is to live a shocking amount.
Oh and I’m going through more of an avocado and coconut oil phase right now.
I know me neither which is why this is a thing now! Now it’s your collective responsiblity to re-ask the 10,000 that were lingering on Askfm jk except that would actually make things so much better. Cause I’m going to try to streamline it all to just this.
It’s by Carla Caruso via OK on Third Street
Thank you! More c00l stuff still to come.
Kumo breathing softly
