I'm gonna need more hangers.

vogue nippon [aug2011, jun2011] :: elle france [jun2011]

slits + cut outs. i don’t know how to convey how drawn i am to these except to force them down your eyes. frequently.

jacket, socks [uo] :: shirt [gap] :: pants [inc] :: hat [f21] :: shoes [melissa x alexandre herchkovitch]

this is the alley where our condo was in Nice. it was the kind where you hang your laundry to dry and you open the shutters while speaking french at 6 am. time is off when i travel and i find it easier to wake up before people rise. i hate it admit it, but everything’s gotten better since school’s ended. the underbellies of my eyes agree. too bad we left Nice that day.

i’m being unceremoniously displaced from one city to the next and it’s quite interesting. nothing becomes routinized, everything stays new, i stay in a constant state of wonderment. it’s very satisfying to wander and satisfy that lust, but it’s also tiring on my brain. i don’t have nearly enough time to process everything or even sit to sketch a little. i’m combining my thoughts that would go into a journal with my style posts. i think it makes sense that way. i’m building up for a full on text post about my blog’s direction and where i’d like it to go.

style notes! yes i am wearing socks with sandals. ah BUT! they are heels, so that fixes the problem i have with the usual visual atrocities committed. this outfit is definitely plane proof and transitioned ridiculously well into the amsterdam crowd. maybe too well.

shirt [shesaidwhat] :: leggings [americanapparel] :: shoes [melissa x alexandre herchkovitch] :: bag [piorucci]

insisted on finding nice’s asian art museum and it was this lovely white swan on an artificial lake. i’m seeing white everywhere and it makes me so happy.

my personal style is a tyrant. my feet in serfdom suffered a lot today and i’m not even going to kid myself. but like a good girl, i do it anyways. i do it because it looks good. oh stupid stupid me.

cardigan [h&m] :: shirt [bdg] :: skirt [zara] :: bag [piorucci]

disregard the area south of my ankles and my lackluster casualness and enjoy the background!

also, my hair is in love with this climate. it was super bouncy and delighted like i haven’t felt in awhile, instead of wilty and sad. its amazing how what you put on can never beat what you already possess. it made me put a premium on investing in quality skin and haircare.

that day marked the beginning of my hit-and-run method to expensive boutique window shopping. visited a store called “wip” for “work in progress.”

brands touched: acne, rick owens, christopher kane, erdem (which is what caught my eye), tons of maison martin margiela

tried on: MMM SS2011 open wedges in the brown wedge version. for those who would like to pretend like they’re gonna run out and buy a pair, they run a bit small (i tried on a 38) and its feels a bit like stepping into a cardboard box.
