Hayden-Harnett IRL Shoot

I had the pleasure of participating in Hayden-Harnett's IRL (in real life) Spring/Summer 09 series. The idea is to show what HH's goods look like when styled and worn by regular, every day, most girls you know type girls. Unfortunately the jumpsuit looked all kinds of wrong on me but I fell in love with the dress I ended up in. And the accessories? Well I was unable to leave the store without getting the pumps and the papaya studded cuff I tried on. Wish I could've taken it all.

(Try not to laugh at my bangs. Haircuts are expensive!)

Oh and, sorry for momentarily disappearing again. Living in NYC requires getting the hell out of it sometimes. We don't have enough grass here. Or stars. And did you know if you don't go on the internet for 5 days, something like 400 blog posts pile up to read? I just finally caught up. Go outside people! Well not today, it's gross and rainy. Hmph.

Vena Cava x Gap!

I'm so pumped for the upcoming Vena Cava and Alexander Wang x Gap collections. The pieces were revealed on Racked two weeks ago, and now Modelinia reports the items will be priced from $39.50 to $88. Nice! For some reason I imagined the price points would be higher. I hope to snag one (or both) of the printed Vena Cava dresses and perhaps the Alexander Wang khaki moto jacket. This collab is pretty much a dream come true (khaki & all), as Lisa Mayock and Sophie Buhai are my favorite younger designers. And Alex, you're not too shabby either.

Just another day closer to Summer

When you don't have a regular schedule that gets you out of bed and in the shower at 7 AM sharp every day, dressing can fall by the wayside until one day you realize you've been wearing the same (albeit adorable) Steven Alan pajama set for 3 days. You changed once or twice to run errands, but the PJs went back on the minute you got home. Ohhhkay, it's time to get dressed. Still not quite hot outside, but inching closer as the end of the month nears, you grab a summer dress out of the closet, pop open a bottle of Honey Moon Summer Ale, and daydream of days to come.

Your white legs remind you that it's been too long, and beach season cannot come soon enough.

Wish I were a French girl

La la la, oui oui oui. It's true, every outfit I've put on lately has something to do with the Nouvelle Vague. Maybe using Anna Karina in Pierrot Le Fou as my banner tipped you off towards my penchant for this style (and her & co). How many striped shirts does a girl need? I've stopped counting.

Also, apologies for being pretty absent on this blog lately. I don't know what to say, it's been gray & rainy. I've got some good stuff lined up for next week.
