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.
Finally breathing the same air as A. Wang spring. Turns out men’s tailoring fabrics look really good on tiny things.

Biker jackets bought a size too big on purpose and biker jackets that are designed pre-oversized by people that are perfect at what they do – very different things. This Acne jacket is slightly my new best friend. Worn in Paris with the least summery summer outfit my suitcase had to offer.
In the heart of Shibuya, the iconic all-ways crosswalk that sends everyone on their way after exiting the JR train station. I’ve shot here so many times for both my blog and Japanese magazines but there’s always a new angle to take on this beautiful cluster#*(@. Japan is still July-warm but I’m inspired by the surely miserably hot salarymen in their suits to suffer a little in my toddler length sweaters. These are all pieces that I’ve been wearing over and over again in different equations – the Wang skirt I bought last winter is proving to still be useful, especially when updated with Phillip Lim’s new season mules (so comfortable they’re airportworthy) and super slick backpack.

Hi from Tokyo! Some shots from Shibuya tonight headed to Yasutoshi Ezume, the last show of the first day of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Tokyo. I’m loving the look of stiff structured pieces coming together, I brought the look down to reality with generic canvas sneakers I picked up in Harajuku a few days ago.

Got a little done up for the Socialyte Awards last week, held at The Box in the Lower East Side. I was so honored to receive the Industry Choice Award! I wore this simple but dramatic pseudo-robe dress from Jenni Kayne’s fall collection that I’m extremely sure I didn’t tie up in the manner intended. I always have to have something slightly off don’t I. There were, entertainingly enough for a blogger event, no photos allowed inside the venue so these were shot around the Bowery after heading out.
I’d been peering flirtatiously at this camisole on Net-a-porter for months and trying it on at the actual By Malene Birger shop in Stockholm confirmed its oversized perfection. I wore it in the last bit of Swedish sun I got with my go-to Ksubis and Wangs in the emptied out courtyard that the Cheap Monday show took place in a couple days prior. I might photo diary the rest of what I shot in Stockholm due to chaos reasons – I’m squirreling around in LA trying to get ready to leave for New York tomorrow morning. See you guys at fashion week!

A taco salad/strawberry/coconut water picnic and apparently near yoga session wearing a new favorite tank from Brandy Melville. Something that I’m perhaps overly into right now is things with laser cutouts brushing their hems and if I can integrate that all into a tank and shorts set, even better. It’s all very specific.
