i have been a fan of whitney port for a while now. ever since she moved to new york we have seen her style morph into a more vintage, textured, and layers-driven styling that i adore and am so inspired by. for some reason, ive always had a lot of trouble finding images of her outfits from the city, that always seem effortless and very carrie bradshaw-in-her-twenties.
- worth. by david c wigley** my favorite, his harem pants and peacock feather-trimmed blazer.. wow.
- cherry blossom - great craftsmanship and fits
- romandin by cristina sabaiduc - authentically avante garde, it was like her interpretation of alexander mqueen spring 2007, but very fresh.
- live music of umbrella mafia - just because the singers voice was bananas
honorable mention: the models were all so different, as people would be as you walk down the street. i usually like my models regulated in appearance, but this looked awesome because it wasnt models with a token plus-size woman, for example. it was just thoroughly eclectic.
this past summer in paris i was introduced to klorane's dry shampoo by mosha. this is something that i had been looking for my whole life, even though i didnt know it existed. jonathan products green rootine collection has also now launched a dry shampoo that is non-aerosol. this product absorbs oil, gives your roots volume, smells good, and can give you a day grace on your regular shampoo schedule. this is perfect for people, like me, who have a lot of hair that needs to be tended to with time and care. feel like some spur-of-the moment gallivanting? spray your hair, mess it up, and choose life.
i sometimes find it difficult to find jewelery that i feel like i havent seen before. the series une journée à paris from van cleef & arpels really excited me though. i think the creative director nicholas bos summed it up perfectly: “it just feels like the right time to be doing something that has no irony and doesnt have a trace of cynicism”
every so often im going to do these mishmashes of photos - theyre just ones that ive saved and havent used. i just watched a rachel zoe marathon, can you feel it in the pictures :P
you know how sometimes you feel like you may be clinging to a style thats kinda over? well these pictures set my mind at ease. the bandage skirt actually matches everything. heels, flats, boots, tights, no tights, tshirts, baggy blouses, bf blazers, vintage sweaters,.. shall i go on?
