zara slingback shoes

WANG-esque slingbacks from Zara that will hopefully be re-stocked in my size soon. For $50, these are too good to pass up!

morning beauty

View from the Del Marcos Hotel in Palm Springs, California | June 18, 2012 at 5 a.m.

QUIET moments that invite you to breathe in the simplicity of a morning sunrise. APOLOGIES for my absence over the last few days as I escaped to the desert for some long overdue R&R. More photos to follow!

SHORT hemlines usually call for some overcompensating elsewhere so I covered up in my new cropped moto leather jacket. It’s the perfect outer layer for Los Angeles mornings and nights that start and end a bit chillier than mid-day weather. Among the things I miss most about living in the northeast, especially in the summer? Those consistently humid nights!

Wishing you a great rest of the week!

big foot

KINDA love telling people my shoe size and seeing their reactions. “You have big feet for such a petite person!”

I had scored these Pierre Hardy Metallic Leather High-Top Sneakers during Net-a-Porter‘s annual half off sale but got a size 40 (FR) because that’s what I typically wear in sneakers. And though I could make them fit because of the velcro straps, they look MASSIVE to the point of RIDICULOUS on my feet. Like dude-big. If you put me in a line-up with guys and only showed our feet, I’m pretty sure everyone would assume I was a guy.

Luckily, I managed to snag a size 39 when it came back into stock the other day and can’t wait to receive them. Plan to pair these high-tops with really minimal looks that include dark blazers, t-shirts and mini skirts.

If you prefer these in gold, Luisaviaroma is doing a pre-order for them right now!

OH you know, just running around town pantsless. Kidding. I’m far too modest to do that… in public. If you’re looking for a great body-hugging nude slip to wear under sheer clothing, I highly recommend the DKNY ‘Fusion’ slip, which I wore underneath this shirt.

On rotation: cutout shoulder button-downs, shirt dresses and my RF for Kith X Quintin Selvedge Denim hat!
