hoodie: Michael Kors (men’s), 2007 | leggings: Forever 21, 2008 | shoes: Dior, 2004
do you remember Dior’s "Dietrich" shoes? this was the first year i accompanied Marc Bagutta to Paris/Milan Fashion Week, i assisted with the buying for BaguttaLife by taking all the notes and whatnot. and occasionally Marc Bagutta would ask my opinion on things, seeing as i am such an extraordinarily stylish woman with exceptional taste and all. one of the things i fell in love with immediately were these shoes, i talked him into buying them (even though he’ll deny it if you ask him because he likes to claim credit for himself). well when we returned to NYC, his senior salesperson and store manager hated the photos of them, she derided him for being so stupid for choosing these pieces and declared her clients would despise them. wouldn’t you know they turned out to be the big major campaign for Dior ’04, everybody in the world was clamoring for these shoes and they sold out nearly everywheres.
hah. i’m just sayin.
brunch this day at Miss Lily’s. (ha ha ahaa yea, we all made jokes about how Anna Wintour called the Fire Department, it’s true.)
jacket: Maurice Jones for Geld Iaz, 1997 | pants: RLX Ralph Lauren, 2009 | eyewear: Chanel, 2004
yes this jacket is the black version of the brown "safari" jacket i wore the other day. i got them both in 1997 when a tailor named Maurice Jones brought wholesale samples he’d made to Geld Iaz. i’d talked him down to about 40% of what he’d asked and agreed to buy the two samples to see if they garnered any interest with my clients. then i kinda forgot about them, and i never heard from Maurice Jones ever again. his buttons were a tad ugly so i removed them all and replaced the three front buttons with much nicer ones and ended up just keeping them both for myself.

i knew it was going to rain (again) today. i love my new rain hat. apparently it’s "guaranteed for life!" and "insured against loss," whatever the hell that means.

the other great thing about cool snow riding gear? it’s all 100% waterproof.
who was it that said, "there’s no such thing as bad weather, there’s just one being ill-prepared" —was it that Blackwell guy? whatever, he was kinda full of shit anyways, but you get the picture.
car coat: Rick Owens Lilies, 2007 | t-shirt: RLX Ralph Lauren, 2010 | jeans: Dior (men’s – altered), 2007 | boots: Alexander McQueen, 2007 | eyewear: Yves St Laurent, 2010
these denim shorts are a hand-me-down from sweetie, they used to be full-length but i cut them and took in the crotch after he’d worn them down until they had holes in the ass.
dinner party at La Esquina. drinks at Mr H.
jacket: Yohji Yamamoto (men’s), 2008 | hoodie: Codes Combine, 2007 | leggings: Forever 21, 2009 | shoes: DKNY, 2007 | bag: Yves St Laurent, 2008 | socks: Adidas, 2010
mhmm i feel the ole "uniform" creeping back in. whenever i’m feeling lazy, i steal sweetie’s clothes. i love this jacket so much though, i totally forced him to buy it, he was apprehensive at first. but i think it’s really great, it’s a ribbed knit blazer.
