Feet Treats

As S has mentioned before, I've never been worn much jewelry. I will admire a brooch or embellished cuff for days, but never could quite fit them into my own aesthetic. I tend to lean towards one, or two (if I'm feeling cheeky) pieces that pop. Shoes are the dessert of choice as of late. J and I were craving some good LA Mexican food before catching a show at The Improv and before we left, I couldn't help but find our feet in some yummy dressings. I find those two red stripes below particularly delicious. Check out J's socks. Pretty sweet.

Ways of the West

I've landed in dear California, frolicking around in some of my tried and true favorites. Like all good things, mason jars full of dried flowers, weekly g+ meetings, lattes with almond milk and stevia--why change them if they are still good? The pulse and heat of Los Angeles is strong though. I'm excited to see how it seeps into my sartorial skin. S, I may or may not have bought a jade green tank top from a skate store that has the grim reaper on it...

M and I often joke about our opposing fashion choices. 
She'll be in a simple black dress while I usually opt
 for embellished whites. This was exemplified in our last
 trip together in DC. I love a dress that I can live in 
and always feel cute in, and this little white definitely 
fits the bill.

2605 Miles Apart

As of last week, M and I have descended upon our new lives in 
LA and Boston, respectively. Michelle to pursue her sun-filled 
education aspirations, and I to attend graduate school. Our paths 
have led us apart, but our sartorial and design interests bond us 
together indefinitely. And of course - New York will always be
there as our common ground. Here's to everything we learned in
past five years.

Hopelessly bicoastal

California charms me, sorry Mr. New York. Took my little wings and flew out there for thanksgiving break, delighting in bare legs, sheer fabrics, and daily beach walks on Santa Barbara sand. The faded pastels of California frame my New York blacks, reds, and cerulean blues more gently than Brooklyn wood and brick, like black and red licorice in a bowl of jordan almonds.
