The Last of the Bare Legs

I expect this'll be the last time I'm able to go relatively bare-legged for a while, so I saved this for a breezy day. Also peep the blue fishnets that I have allowed my cats to rip and claw at while I walk past them in the apartment. I don't expect them to last very long but boy, are they fun to throw in with stuff

Seiichi Hayashi : Over The Shoulder

Before our trip to Idaho last month, I bought a copy of Seiichi Hayashi's 1970 hit Red Colored Elegy to read on the plane. It's not really something you "read"- I'd be more comfortable with the idea that you just fall into the story. It's a hugely influential indie manga with an elusive, loose plot about two young artists living as a couple while each of them attempt to figure out what it is that they want on their own. I bought the book because of this series ^ which is from a calendar Hayashi made in 2008 called "Modern Beauty".

I love these moment not just because each person is incredibly elegant and stylish, but also because Seiichi Hayashi is able to sneak in tons of information and texture into each frame- whether it's a cocktail winking through a glass, the edges of a rug or a perfume bottle on the beach, it's like he picks up on the little details you'd focus on each object or person if you just scanned your eyes across the scene. It's an enviable everyday, probably taken for granted, but also quiet and humbly beautiful.

Fall West

10.06.2018



















3.1 Phillip Lim Jumper & Skirt 
Sartori Gold boots
Vivienne Westwood x Cambridge Satchel Co. bag 

My boyfriend Jevins is from ^^this^^ breathtakingly beautiful place; Hailey, Idaho. 
My city ass is from Queens, which would make Hailey feel a certain kind of exotic if it weren't for my parents, who took me to the Adirondacks nearly every spring when I was a kid. Not entirely comparable, but when you stand at the foot of a mountain, or feel them peering over you from a great distance,  you feel wonderfully insignificant at the mercy of nature.

Jevins and I went for a walk. Down the road from the ranch he grew up on, Jevins pointed out whenever we'd pass a family of magpies, or a place where he found a couple barn kittens when he was a kid. We danced by the river for a little bit, and then stopped to pick a couple plums from a couple trees down the road.

Many thanks to the 3.1 Phillip Lim team for sending by this look from the Fall '18 capsule collection,  giving me a chance to interpret this city look out here in mountain country. Definitely suggest peeping the collection here- lots of knits and separates in here that I can't help but love.

From the Phone: PANTS

9.10.2018



a current air pants  
Aritzia top
second-handed Dries Van Noten heels
vintage sunglasses

Have I been lagging with posting this summer? Absolutely. 
Did I move apartments and knuckle-down on my day job? Oh, for sure.

Is it hot as heck and balmy in Brooklyn? You know it!
Time to break out the swingy short-pants and barely-there tie top. I like to think these weird cat eye aviators do well with the retro gingham-style fabric of the pants. Take me to your picnic, brev
