in the words of myrtle snow

Took these a few days ago with a new vintage treasure find, this Balenciaga (or balenciagaaaaaaaa!) overall dress that looks just like an artist smock (and yes, I've been told). How did I wear it? Easy. Throw a comfortable striped T, newly acquired from Objects Without Meaning (in my favorite color, no less) and a few minimal statements from Mirlo New York - I'm piling it high, y'all, my horseshoe cuff, handcuff ring and X cuff.

Well, after today I'm off for another 3 day weekend to gaze at stars and live in the wild. Wish me luck. No but really. This girl ain't an outdoors kinda girl, so pray for me.


ladies who brunch on sundays

A week long overdue post but still so relevant on this fine Memorial Day (and the last day of this awesome long weekend). Headed over to the best Sunday brunch with French Connection's finest, Kristi and Delia, and had some incredible food and catchup at The Upstairs at the Kimberly Hotel with some old and new friends. It was the coolest kickoff for spring and of course, I was decked out in this floral jumpsuit that closely resembles lemons (can't be mad at that) with a sheer, embellished long sleeve under and a pretty perfect leather jacket. And then of course, a backpack is necessary for pretty much any occasion.

Hope everyone's enjoying their Memorial Day while I sit in the sun and recover from this weekend's festivities! Yes.


pack light and bright

What I usually have trouble with every single weekend when I'm away from home is packing light. I always somehow end up with a heavy bag and a shoulder full of hurt. This weekend, I'm trying to pack light with just the essentials in my Ora Delphine satchel that I'm doubling up as a small weekend duffle to keep me from packing everything I want and only what I need. Essentials that include including this Comme des Garçons top that I've been meaning to have in my closet and a Totoro felt keychain that my sister so lovingly handmade for me.


a break from the norm

Took a break from my usual boyfriend jeans and ragged tee to bring you a more ladylike outfit with an actual pair of heels - a pair of comfortable two-seasons-ago-but-still-incredible Jeffrey Campbells at that - and a full skirt from H&M. Take a good look, guys. This won't happen too often.

Spring has officially sprung - evident in the increasing amount of photos of flowers and green foliage on your Instagram feed (guilty as charged) - but I'm not mad at it. Because that means actually being able to wear this FCUK leather number with whatever mini dress I have on hand and beat up Converses. The perfect outfit for another rainy day at the Met.


soak it up

Soaking up some vitamin D on the Bowery rooftop (thanks Ted) on a beautiful Sunday afternoon after a long Saturday night in everything oversized (sorry, boys!) and my second (and certainly not last) pair of Birks.
