Vintage Charles David Boots, replaced the laces
Second-handed blouse that doesn't have any tags for some reason

I think I just keep having Raf Simons moments.
Snagged this wool sweater, which appears to be from the 50's, at a local vintage shop for $5. I assume it was marked down so much because there is a dime-sized hole in one sleeve, and there was a dark brown stain on the waist band. Something about the oversized fit that you can only see in vintage varsity clothing, with the big, bold and ambiguous 'A' made me justify buying the ratty thing. I came home, put it on, and realized the fit with the tight waistband at the bottom was billowing out in an unflattering way and driving me crazy. It was stained up anyway, so I took a pair of scissors to it and pulled the shreds to exacerbate the unraveling.

Et voilá! Now whenever I wear this sweater in the apartment, the cats chase me around trying to get a hold of the wool yarn dripping and bouncing off of where the waistband used to be.
I think I'm just gonna let this thing die slowly 'till it's nothing but a noodly crop top.

Beautifully Loose at Ann Demeulemeester FW '18

1.21.2018







William Blake's colorful book cover and illustrations therein for Songs of Innocence and of Experience moved SĂ©bastien Meunier to make his first collection of the year for Ann terribly romantic.

I'm here for the states of undress and any excuse to wear an oversized silk blouse. Lots of little layers are much warmer than a few bulky ones, anyway.

Raf Simons' spring 2011 show for Jil Sander had a suuuuuper strong impression on me. He called it "A mille-feuille of color."
The spring '11 shows were during my first New York Fashion Week after I started my freshman year of college at Parsons, and everyone was clamoring over the Sander spring colors- they were incredibly confident and bright hues layered on top of one another from opposite ends of the spectrum often, and anchored by a featherlight white T-shirt or button-up. The collection was something so familiar and so delightful, at the time I remember feeling like the colors really resonated with my own excitement at school.

Fast-forward 7 years later, and I saw this camel hair coat at the AYR sample sale. I immediately thought of the Sander collection. I can't remember the last time I saw a piece and had it hit an emotional chord like that. Color does that, fragrance does that.
So I get home, look for things to wear with my coat the next day, and I slowly realize I happen to have all the colors from that last look in the collection. Paired everything with the neoprene sock boots and boom- I'll be a walking mille-feuille any day.
