During NYFW after the Thakoon show – that day I went for a classic slipdress/choker combo and Alexander Wang most everything else. Right after exiting the venue we came across first a casual street horse then a truck blocking all traffic with ease on a street probably more fit for the horse. SO FUN. I’m still deciding how to feel about Wang’s spring ’15 waist barcodes and torso sneakers but what I do know is this trench coat makes everything better.

I’ve teamed up with Intermix to highlight their collaboration with talented typographer Pieter Ceizer and Eleven Paris. They’re opening up five new stores this year and each city has its own sweatshirt design to celebrate! The Palo Alto store is now open and their design features this sweet City of the Future graphic. The exclusive tops are available in store and at Intermix – also so obsessed with the Kate tank!

Another zillion degree day, another crop top. Different in that it’s essentially two slings that are possibly to wear one at a time if you were worried about that. I grounded the look with shoes that the average boy despises and a simple shoulder bag. YES SUMMER. And perpetual one layer of clothing.

You know something is good when you have no freaking clue what to call it. I’ve broken this..doodad? in on Instagram and it’s time to slap the whole look on here. I fell in hopeless, doomed obsession with it on Behati circa last September so it was really just a matter of time. I find that such a piece makes so little sense in any context that it kind of makes sense in any context. Barbecue? Semi-formal event? Slumber party? SURE. The trick being to not have it be readable on your face that you’re aware you’re sort of wearing a Frankensteined morning after outfit. Feel free to offer your opinion on outfit poker face, the evil powers of B. Prinsloo, and potential names for an attached boxer shirt set below.

This outfit got stuck in my head so I recycled it within a single week and dared those in close quarters to question me. They didn’t, but man was I ready. This dress can be a little breezy let’s say, so it’s nice to anchor it with a snug fitting weird sweater. Round 1 was shot on a too hot for chenille day on Melrose and 2 at the beautiful Ace hotel downtown. That view..
(Everlane silk tank and leather tote, Friend of Mine skirt, Alexander Wang Marine pumps)
I’m loving Everlane’s silk basics, I’ve been living in the button downs and rediscovering the appeal of the massive bag thanks to them. I wore this just scarily orange enough tank with Friend of Mine’s little leather wrap skirt and my Alexander Wang wedges for a super hot day in West Hollywood. Next stop Palm Springs!
This top had me at built-in bralette..I love that shadowy effect against the stiff cotton. Possibly as un-Silverlake as an outfit can get but it felt perfect to me for a fresh almost warm spring day in the city. Oh and hi monster wedges good to see you again.

The combination of a tshirt, sweats, and some slip-on shoes doesn’t have to look the way it sounds. Semi-casual Friday.
(Phoebe English top, Alexander Wang trench coat and pleated skirt, sneakers from Harajuku)
Getaway to the opposite of New York fashion week – sun soaked Palm Springs. This top I got from Dover Street Market while I was out on that side of the country, I like it enough but the mere fact that the label reads “100% elastic” would have probably sold it alone. The more literal the bandage-ness of bandage clothing the better. I love it with these pieces from the Alexander Wang spring collection and my Harajuku nurse slip-ons.
