A couple newer things – this Zara blanket coat was sometimes such an item of comfort during my trip to Paris and other times a total liability cause I was trying to force it when it was still basically heat waving in which case I used it as a shield from the sun. So actually not so bad. I love its easy sloppy shape. Paired with laceless combat boots because I’m developing a Zanotti fetish, it would appear.

From beautiful summery Paris last week – I went lace skirt rampaging throughout the city and fell in love with this olive silk Vanessa Bruno one upon sight from across the street from her boutique in Le Marais. I wore it with the actual last item I threw in my bags when I was getting ready to leave LA – so meant to be.

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.
