NYFW IN MY OWN NUTSHELL

A bit late in the game, but it is technically still fashion month so here we go!

Creatures of Comfort
The vibe of the look on the left just oozes cool. Basically the only thing you ever want to ooze, nawmean? And the color combo on the right is the most perfect grouping I have ever seen and never thought of. Not one color is repeated and it makes. so. much. sense.

Calvin Klein Collection
First off, those boots. Second and thirdly, those boots. Seriously you guys, time to get some more-hole Docs and thrift all the long sweaters out there. What an unexpected direction for CKC - all those knits and textures and grungey goodness. Just when I thought it couldn't get any better than last Fall (which I now have a piece of but more on that later).

Proenza Schouler
I don't even know what's going on with all these prints. What I do know is that I want to jump into all of them, like poltergeist-into-the-TV style but with all the joy (not terror). And I'm glad to see that the longer length coats are here to stay.

Rodebjer
What can I say, I love me some Scandi design. Rodebjer just knows how to strike that perfect note of dressy casual. A crisp white shirt and leather trousers, but done in the most undone relaxed way. And the thing that looks like it was pulled out of a drain but I still inexplicably want to wrap around my face? That's what you call Scandi magic.

Theory
One of the shows I was most curious to see after the drop of the Theyskens name. A bit less flair than the usual Theyskens shows, but just enough to hint at his presence behind the scenes, still directing the classic brand. Transparent layering twist on an otherwise classic business silhouette and a full blown weird ruffly vest situation (technical terms) that I will be stalking the release of.

The Row
No words. Well besides "no words" there are actually no other words. Besides maybe, "Mary Kate and Ashley, how about a personal order?"

Tibi
The crossover-scarf-as-shirt styling that spawned a thousand Instagrams. Now you know what to do when there are no clean shirts. The whole trompe l'oeil shirt-tied-around-waist-but-not-actually-a-separate-shirt thing has been done for a few seasons, but the top left look with the same fabric almost making it a twofer (look it up), is just. so. fresh. Or maybe it actually is two pieces and in that case please strike from the record what do I know anyway? Well actually, I do know that I will be emulating that bottom right look because ASIAN. *claps dust off hands and walks away proudly* (everyone confused)


...Maybe I will or maybe I won't get to the other city show recaps...

MYSTERY.

FALLTY WEATHER


Kai-aakmann sweater // Reformation silk tank // vintage Levi's // Rodebjer Redford flats

While NY suffers through a nature crisis, Southern California forgot to fork off the road into fall and is still full steam ahead into the never ending summer. Luckily at night, it's just chilly enough for light outerwear. We'll take what we can get. Tanks for day, sweaters for night. Thank you Dear Fieldbinder for my new fall staples!

REDFORD

My fall wardrobe is quickly coming together with some new additions - starting with these Rodebjer Redford Glitter flats. I was worried about the glitter at first cause, as you may know, I'm not much of a frou frou glitzy girl. But the "glitter" here is less crafty and more a stingray-esque texture. With the perfect shape and ultra comfort, these are sure to become a closet staple.
