File under ingenius

What a brilliant idea! You'd look way more chic + discreet filing your nails in public with this...which is usually kind of taboo the normal way.

Bodega Run

After a nearly 4 month hiatus from this blog, I'm back! I didn't mean to step away that long, but hey...shit happens. At any rate, I thought I'd come back with something fresh. Fresh like like picking up a juicy bag of fruit on your way home from work. Such was Opening Ceremony's inspiration for their Pre-Fall '15 collection and it's definitely working for me. I've really been impressed the last several seasons with OC as they get more and more creative with telling a story through prints, pattern, and texture. I kind of want a banana now..

Make yourself at home

Flipping through the September issues of America's celebrity-coated fashion mags often reveals a quite literal regurgitation of the Fall runways. So it was quite refreshing when I saw this brilliant story imagined through the eyes of photographer Boe Marion and stylist Catherine Newell-Hanson. Oversized textured knits, motorcross-inspired pieces and sporty socks all mashed up against the most average of suburbia make for a really exciting vision of the season the leaves turn.

Ca$h Money

I feel like Phillip Lim is on to something with his bags for next season...very tongue in cheek. I appreciate that he doesn't take himself so seriously. Of course, if you're going to spend a lot on a bag, you want it to be "an investment piece". I guess this is kind of poking fun at that in a way?

Criss Cross

I know it seems a bit early to be thinking about fall, but Proenza Schouler just released a preview of their Fall 2014 campaign and my eyes lit right up. Not only is this image gorgeous (must attempt that mermaid cheekbone effect), but those crisscross leather oxfords are A++. You can already nab them if you like! ;)
