Tasseled two piece (how scary does that sound though) for a blazing hot Friday in LA. Celebrated the end of the week over jalapeño infused tequila and guacamole mostly because tomorrow’s going to be spent packing and preparing for 15 hours in the air. Can’t wait to be back in Hong Kong!
Overalls shopping is wild card city so I mostly don’t do it. However, I’m not zoned out enough to not notice when the right pair finally appears. I love that these have the boyfriend fit thing figured out as well as that criss cross bleach-happy wash. I mucked around like so for a weekend afternoon at the Ace downtown waiting for people to ask me to paint stuff and got nothing. All this can mean is that everyone everywhere is ok with all in one denim! So exciting.

My closet makes it easy to coordinate little white suits to run around in, so that’s what I do sometimes. Added some texture with my old favorite Chloé bag and a hoodie I keep on hand in the car to endure any environment temperature-regulated by a male.
I’ve been meaning to put this post together for so long but it was like, one more sunset photo, one more salad at Cafe Gratitude, one more documented nap on my roof. And also there was a little bit of God I love this no-sweater city so much, how do I try to do this right? And it would have been impossible to ever be finished shooting this photo diary but I’m going to cap it here.

Why is the beach so empty? Cause the wind was of the strength level that would barely let a towel lie flat. Especially one with so many corners. So also a really funny day to break in this open all over the place dress! Before quietly stashing it away with my 90 other black slipdresses.
Also – a thing about me is that I’m obsessed with a Podcast called Weird Adults with Little Esther, and one of my life dreams came true when Esther had me on last week. You will only understand how much I actually mean that if you listen to it. This way to an hour you won’t want back.

From what I can remember, I wore this outfit three days in a row. Around that. Except it slowly got diluted down to Birkenstocks, but what doesn’t these days? So I have these beautiful velvety foot wrappy sandals now, and though the instinct with latte toned suede is to go full on buttery pastels, I did the opposite. I love the contrast of raw edge leather and nude suede, suddenly. The top I got on my trip to Sydney a couple months ago and allows for some full torso ventilation during these rough summer months ie. my favorite time of the year. Up next – heading out to 100 degree Palm Springs for the 4th of July!

I suddenly want all tops in this exact length and it’s probably not going to happen for me. Very important for things to gently graze the top of the denim when the arms are not raised. Why do these things plague me even.

First of all, welcome to fashiontoast.3.0.0 and look out for more changes and features to be added. Most notable for now is the integration of the ask function so you more curious folk don’t have to run to Formspring to Askfm and back and around slightly wondering if anything will ever be seen by anyone and why I need an account on every website. So start getting random over this way pls. I will be watching, waiting, refreshing.
Back to business.
Clompy shoes, ghostly sack, nothing I’d rather wear at dusk in LA. I resuscitated this beautiful dress I’ve had forEVER because nothing else looked more like it needed to be worn with 10 minus 4.5 inch huarache platforms. Which was all exciting until this statement corner being location scouted one minute before the sun went down became more exciting which then just got weirdly amazing when I found myself messaging the creator of this postmodern command hours later. More on that when I have more info. And as an unrelated supplement to that non-story, Tom Ford bronzer as eyeshadow is how summer 2014 is going down. Cause it’s hard to tan your lids and you shouldn’t even try but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t look alright.

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!
