Catching Up: Wears/Wares

9.03.2022

Observe: 2 years-worth of catching up on the stuff I fill our apartment with and a couple amusing outfits.

Here are some wares\wears

-

Rachel Comey made these flared fishnet pants. I'm pretty sure I have only ever worn them under dresses, especially in the summer when I wanna wear something that feels fall-adjacent but still has sweet, sweet airflow. Here I paired 'em with a Theyskens' Theory dress that I have own two colors

Know: I loooooooved Theyskens' Theory in college. Between 2010-2014 Olivier Theyskens took the lead designing these über cool, slick and perversely practical city girl-friendly collections under a sub-brand for Theory, and I have a nostalgic thing I can't let go of from clothes from that time. Everything felt sexy and dark.

 This dress is actually two pieces: an a-line shift with a wispy/smoky chiffon overlay, PLUS it has a hidden hoodie pocket under the overlay!! I mean!!!


Jevins surprised me with wall-mounted holders he made for my mezzaluna chopper collection this past year. These marbled enamel pie tin pans are from the late-1800s, sitting on our kitchen butcher block amongst other late-nineteenth century cooking ephemera that I have proudly found in my local thrift stores. The pie tins are good for cheese plate dinners at home.




A dreamy mother of pearl stamp holder that I jumped to buy from Everthine Antiques. I use it to preserve paper bits and collage cutouts,


A Grainne Morton necklace paired with my Bing Bang name plate. I wore these together shortly after my paternal grandmother, Carol, passed away this year. Geist is actually her maiden name, my dad changed it in her honor when he was in college.


Sai made this vase. I love her.


The living room. Always chaos. 
It doesn't look like this right now but this precarious stacking situation somehow didn't fall over for two years.


Grýla tucked underneath a rag quilt <3. 
We have been buying the flower print sheets from Spoonflower for a few years. They're nosebleed expensive but satisfy the look of the "flower bed" we wanted to create for ourselves.


I need more red hangers. When I go to thrift stores I often find and buy the antique hangers that folks overlook. Some of them are handmade or finished by hand! I put special stuff on this red lacquer number when I set things out to wear the night before an event.


Ephemera. An oversized Tom Ford shirt, my favorite denim duster and all kinds of bits 'n bobs jewelry.



God, I love our bathroom. It's my favorite room in our apartment for sure. Shoutout to Glasswing organics, who make the MOST delicious smelling jasmine oil. It's an incredible value for the quality and I stock up on it all the time. 


Obligatory obnoxious tabi photo. I get soles put on special shoes at Cesar's in Chelsea.


I had bleached hair for a hot second when I decided to grow my hair back after shaving it. 
It was a winter wherein I matched my outerwear to the hue of my hair.


My beloved jewel box vanity situation. I'm slowly collecting bottles from Kindred Black along with thrift store/antique porcelain that I have been truly accumulating for years.


Whadya think?
