I wasn’t planning on getting all patriotic with my look today but if it reminds someone to vote subliminally, well, then, that is a good thing. I am nervous today. I think Obama needs the next 4 years to really get all his plans into effect. CHANGE can happen, but not overnight.
Anyhoo, onto the fashion… I am wearing a Rebecca Minkoff tee-shirt under the striped sweater c/o SuperDry. My favorite boyfriend jeans are c/o AGAVE Denim and the sweet yellow sandals c/o Sole Society. Riding my bike means I need a back pack and this one is c/o Nixon. My accessories are KBL sunnies, vintage bling and belt, and Marc by Marc Jacobs pear and as usual, my bird ring from Echo of the Dreamer.

Went with a tom-boy look wearing my kiltie fringe oxfords from Candela with my velvet Agave skinnies.
Black and white and red all over. I feel like a White Stripes video. The Leyendecker shirt is actually the palest pink jersey you can imagine and the vintage necklace is a combo of two of my favorite things: tiny glass beads and long fringe. I have on my Agave Modas, my go-to black skinnys paired with the wedge booties c/o Puma. A vintage belt and I am holding my LemLem scarf.
Probably the last time I will have bare arms outside (in Nyc) for the next 4 months.

Once When I Was living in the lower east side in the 90’s and Ludlow Street only had Marmalade and TG170 for shops and Max Fish and Luna Lounge for bars and Orchard Street only had DDCLab and alife was just the tiny art gallery / slash / sneaker store where all the cute skaters hung outside. Across the street there was a vintage shop that had a pink coat hanging in the window. At the time I had pink hair, and it was about a year before Gwen did it, I might add. I was obsessed with anime and as always, Hello Kitty and all things cute. And I hadn’t even made it to Japan yet.
When I saw this coat in the window I died. I was just starting to style jobs on my own, I was mostly assisting or still working on films. I couldn’t afford the ($80!) coat but this was the LES and everyone was super friendly. I talked to the owner Erika and begged her to hold the coat til the end of the week for me. I think I gave her $20. So essentially I put this coat on lay away.
I can’t explain how happy this coat makes me feel. You would feel it too if you saw it in person. People cross the street to tell me how much they love it. Especially in a sea of black that NYC can be in the fall / winter. This pop of color is a doozy.
This coat has had quite a life, and that is just with me. I can only imagine where it went before me. The tag inside says made exclusively for Marshall Fields in beautiful 1950’s script. In the past 13 years with me this coat has rung in the new millennium in London, been the color pink on an episode of Sesame Street and helped me garner the nickname Pinky Lee for a brief lived time.
Let’s just say I still have to thank my best friends for arranging a ‘hair intervention’ after the coat was taken home because there is only so much pink your friends can handle.
Vintage Coat with scarf c/o LemLem, jeans c/o Agave and wedges c/o Puma.
Happy Halloween! There was a snowstorm this weekend (little factoid: last time it snowed in October was 1959!) so I opted for a really casual get-up while running errands. Real errands, like getting a bagel and picking up the laundry. Not the fancy errands that some style bloggers wear 4 inch heels for on a lazy Sunday. This is a I’m not looking at what my hair is doing kind of get up. And I am sharing it with you. Wild, huh?
I am wearing a jacket c/o Superdry, new favorite holey sweater c/o Aro, super soft long sleeve tee shirt c/o AG Jeans, boyfriend jeans c/o Agave Denim, unicorn socks c/o Sock It To Me, clogs c/o Dr.Martens and vintage Gucci scarf c/o dearly departed Great Aunt Jeanette.
