Mood Board • Weekend Errand Run


• images via •

I'm only just starting to get pretty good at knowing whether or not I'm actually going to wear something before I commit to buying it. I have super limited space these days in a small apartment, and my north star shopping-wise has been something along the lines of what we have here. In other words: I need to find a good trench coat and then an excellent sandwich.

Vintage Levis jeans
Vintage Coach pursette
Vintage jacket
Uniqlo heattech turtleneck
Opening Ceremony loafers

-beauty notes- 
Goldwell colorance foam conditioner in 8k
Label .M curl soufflé, twisted into sections of hair, and air-dried

I was shocked to realize how warm this looped jacket is- especially when layered over a piece of heattech. Post-rain Bushwick can either be puddly and miserable, or glittery and delightfully quiet, and It was definitely a pleasant surprise to find out that I can throw on this jacket and go for a stroll to figure out which outcome followed the rain last weekend.

I keep seeing people sporting loafers and brogues on the train this winter, so I'm calling it for this year: loafers and brogues 2k18. The ones I'm wearing here have been re-soled twice because I absolutely wear them into the ground. Nice and comfortable, and they feature three neutral colors and gold staples.

Maybe a little geriatric, but fuck it, I'm 25 and have the glasses prescription of an 80-year old, so I might as well play the part.

The weather has been absolutely bonkers this winter- one day it's 60ºF+ and you need nothing more than a light jacket, the next it's 15ºF with windchill in the single digits! It's because of this that I have started keeping capes on hand, either packed in my bag or kept in my desk at all times. There's something awesome about being able to tuck your arms underneath one on the train & protect your limbs from the cold.

I think I have something like 4-5 different capes, most of them are vintage since my local vintage shops tend to have 'em on hand, but my dream cape would definitely be one of the Pierre Balmain numbers from this year because honestly, there more rock 'n roll you can make them, the better.

Vintage jacket 
Vintage sweater, which I have distressed (IRO's Padas sweater is a close cousin)
Vintage Charles David Boots, replaced the laces
Second-handed blouse that doesn't have any tags for some reason
Helmut Lang jeans (℅ Shopbop)

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 unflattering and  stained, 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 from 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.
