This, you guys, is what awesome looks like.
Let me introduce you guys to ADEEN, an accessories line designed by my friend Rembrandt "Remy" Duran, a born and bred New Yorker with a penchant for all things dope as hell. Last week, he asked me to be a part of his catalog shoot with some of the coolest people in his crew.

I met Remy something like two years back at an event for Levi's. He was wearing a snapback hat of his own design, fangs and all. I came to learn that his pieces were not only fun and imaginative, but incredibly inspired with tons of attention to detail. His acrylic jewelry, snapbacks, plushie pins and knit hats all have a specific story behind them, totally intertwined with Remy's childhood and his experiences in the fashion world. His pieces have been featured, well, pretty much everywhere (and more). Let's also talk about how he has managed to do this at age 21 and how his pieces are  handmade. Boom. Roasted.

The shoot for the catalog took place at Chelsea Piers on a day that happened to be one of the hottest ever in my freaking life. It was a whopping 100º F out in the sun and as luck would have it, my face turned beet-red from the heat in about 10 minutes. Fitting though, because getting to meet Andrej made me totally star-struck and even more red from embarrassment. Andrej is SO GORGEOUS you guys, like I can't even, and of course a total dream in front of the camera. And super nice. Like, what the what. I also met Lafayette, who is beyond cool, from her tats to cute as ever personality she's totally kickass. She also makes these totally dope shirts (some of which glow in the dark), and studded platform sneakers that will make you say whaaaaat. So yeah, get on that. I was able to get a few behind-the-scenes shots before my camera and I died from the HEEEET though thankfully.

Such a cool experience though, can't wait to share the photos when they hit!

Quiksilver women's blouse, AKIRA Chicago floral knot blouse, vintage Levi's shorts, Goldenponies flats, Rebecca Minkoff Brynn bag, Lulu Frost chain bracelet, Sorrelli cuffs, Vanessa Mooney beaded bracelet, hair c/o Arrojo


Woot!! Got the hair 'did this past week!
Mariesa at Arrojo took care of my color, she explained she wanted to make it more "summery" by simply pulling the color through my brighter undertones rather than making my hair one solid shade, I really love it! Should fade nicely with the crazy sun we've been having (like 100º crazy sun).

I've been dying to wear out these new triple strap flats, which are totally handmade and fun to knock around the city in, they add a great pop of color to pretty much anything, which is always a plus. I ws also stoked to wear out this incredibly cool Akira top! More sartorial air conditioning! More edgy tailoring! Yay!

Stay frosty, cool cats.

Free People Sweater, Tramp glitter shorts, vintage boots & eye necklace, asos hat, nails c/o Sally Hansen

It was beyond belief being invited to the Rebecca Minkoff x StyleCaster Hamptons retreat last week. We pulled up to this GIANT house with double driveways snaking up to it, and it was enough to knock the daytrip grogginess out of me. While the house itself was big, bright and lovely, I would find these dark little beautiful solitary corners that I couldn't help but love because you could only see them if you looked closely.

I've been seriously experimenting with texture lately because the shedding of layers means I have to get more creative with less. This sweater is seriously the bees' knees because it's the ultimate lounge-around-the-apartment-zone-out-to-jazz-and-eat-ice-cream sweater (I'm specific with how I spend my free time, it keeps me sane), which means it's suuuuper comfy. The shorts keep everything from being too pajama game.

Speaking of dazzling amazing, let's talk about this nail polish i've been wearing CONSTANTLY since I got it, Sally Hansen's Magnetic waves polish. It's like a science experiment only prettier! I was a little perplexed the first time I heard about it and couldn't quite visualize what it would do, but I had to try it. It's like magic EVERY SINGLE TIME I apply it! I get so stupidly excited whenever I do my nails now! You wave a magnet over your nails for a few seconds and you have these beautiful undulating metallic lines. Elegant and dark, gotta love it.

Jonathan Simkhai split sleeve tee, Cheap Monday denim shirt & trench, BDG shorts, Jcrew belt, 80%20 Edie loafers, vintage Coach satchel, talon clip rings via ebay

Quick & simple dinner ensemble. I keep wearing white-on-white whenever I pull out these shorts! I guess it's just one of those things that you can't help but do in the summer. But to keep things from being pale & bland, I added in some layerables and a contrasting acid orange belt. I loved adding the little structural details in the shirt & loafers, adds a little something extra I guess.

 I wore this stuff out to an absolutely lovely dinner with BCBG & Lubov Azria herself! It was probably the most inspiring and educational sit-down dinners I have ever had since I started blogging. Lubov asked everybody at the table to share their "ah-ha!" moment with fashion, and listening to all of these seasoned pros share their stories really helped everyone let their guard down a bit and feel compelled to say hey to someone they might have never met before. Really awesome.

The talon clip rings came out again, but lemme tell ya, things are hard to eat with!

Free People open back crop top, Quiksilver women's shirt tied, vintage Coach bag & Gap pants, 80%20 Edie loafers, Asos hat, Sorrelli pyrite spike bangle & ring, Cheap Monday copper double bracelet, gold eye ring by Datter Industries & all other rings vintage

A lovely afternoon out with Bonnie, Nadia, Natalie and Chantal, who is here in NYC for an always lovely visit! We pretty much spent the day outside, with rooftop events at Le Bain for the launch of the Steve Madden Mag & then eating noms on the High Line until the sun went down. It isn't even summer yet and my summer has been off to a nice start!

After finding this FP top, I had been dying to wear it around like it's 1992, high waisted pants and all. My mom wore a lot of stuff like this back in the day, I remember her seasoned loafer collection from growing up that she always kept color-coordinated in her closet. She would wear pants like these with black jumpers, loafers, a gold watch, curbed chain bracelet, her bobbed white hair and red lipstick. Even though I was barely preoccupied with fashion when I was little, I always thought she looks über cool. I pretty much channeled her vibe with my AMAZING Edie loafers that I had been dying over since I first caught a glimpse of the 80%20 spring/summer look book. I made the look my own by wearing tons of my favorite rings like I usually do, which is something my mom never sought after in her own look, but I'm sure she doesn't mind.
