Last month on a bright day in Paris, I tried to jump the gun on this cashmere pseudo-romper I had picked up at Printemps by adding the ol’ Seymour and some high denier tights. For how much I didn’t feel bogged down by heavy winter gear, I guess I was pretty warm? Still, can’t wait to wear this little navy suit with espadrilles and little else.

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.

Missing Paris and the ways it makes me want to dress in paneled corners. Thank you Geraldo da Conceicao for bringing velvet, marabou, and Lucite together at last in shoe format..over the top in the most French way and therefore perfect.

Cause why should all bulletproof vests be functional? This was one of my favorite pieces that went down Barbara Bui’s fall runway. Sometimes dressing like a video game character is something I like to do. The Bui team tailored it perfectly so now I pretty much have to keep it forever. I wore this on one of Paris fashion week’s hottest days – these were shot walking through the Tuileries, outside the Sonia Rykiel show, and crossing Pont Neuf at sunset on the way to dinner.

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.

She’s perch happy. Shot these before a warm night out in Paris – the car wash dress is gladiator-y without being too literal and the boots just badass in the way that things with nailhead studs tend to be. Easy pieces that go a long way. I’m currently fixated on the idea of wearing this dress casually, with all it’s shiny panels and sheer bits I feel like it’s just asking for it.
So that thing that people talk about where they need time to digest a collection with the purpose of achieving stuff like perspective and maybe even the ability to apply concepts to real life didn’t factor in at all with Isabel Marant’s FW. All that thin knit mating and inexplicable upper boob slit work and silver studding seemed immediately capable of filling multiple quietly gaping holes in my closet. And now the wait is over, really, finally over. This cozy shrunken sweater and warrior princess skirt were the standout pieces to me, shot on Pont Alexandre III for Seine nymph (those exist) vibes and also cause actually anything/one would look perfect there.
Bumble and bumble sent me their new thickening products to try during fashion week here in Paris – I’m faithful (lazy?) for the most part when it comes to trying new hair products but Bumble always manages to prove that entire system wrong. These four little guys have been making the process of fluffing my non-wavy non-straight hair up into something so seemingly effortless that I can focus almost exclusively on fake fashion week problems. The process I’ve been using is soaking the conditioner into the ends, blow drying it halfway dry and putting it into two infantile buns for an awkward 15 minutes (NO I WASN’T GOING TO WEAR IT LIKE THIS TO COFFEE BUT NOW I JUST MIGHT), smushing the creme into ends to separate them a bit, and then using the dryspun finish lightly throughout for instant mane-ness. Thank you for my new routine Bumble!
