I just saw Jen Brill (New York IT girl/gf of photog Terry Richardson) at a vintage store on 3rd Ave. She was so cute, and was wearing a black leather jacket with a black fur vest over it and her great geek chic glasses. I've been slowly but surely filling up a folder on my desktop of her great outfit pics, and I'll post more when I sort through them.
Ummm I found it. The PERFECT brown leather bomber that I've been searching for FOREVER. This proves that good things come to those who wait (oh wait, didn't I already buy TWO brown leather bombers on ebay that have since been relegated to the back of my closet?) Anyways, here it is:
I was literally delirious with joy last night when I found it; my bff/roomie Zoey thinks I'm a freak.
I tried this on at Barneys Coop just for the heck of it (oh $800 for a 80's body con dress, no biggie). I could hardly get it zipped up, but when I did I realized the appeal: FULL BODY SPANX, just like an Hervé Leger. YUMMM. Lucky Diane Kruger, she got to play the most beautiful woman in history (Helen of Troy, what a compliment!) and she probably got this A. Wang dress for free. GRRRRRR.
PS. I've been going through StyleSightings archives when I'm bored, all the way back to last summer. It's so getting me in the mood for driving around LA in my brand hybrid car (suggestions anyone?), drinking iced coffee and playing loud happy music, something like Ben Kweller.
I can't wait for Spring Break, I'm going to Berkeley, CA to visit my friend, then I'm going to LA to my charming little Silverlake If you live/d there you'd know why the graffiti writing is necessary, it's East LA, man, and the Hipster capital of LA now.
Onto the Style Sightings... Ohh Edita, such a beauty. Julia is STUNNNING
Also, today its 59 degrees in NY, I NEED to get out of bed and enjoy this weather!!
Remember Barbie Dream House? Well this is Arianna's Dream House. Which may become reality in a few months when I move back to LA and get to decorate to my hearts content with vintage finds from the Rosebowl Flea Market. Ideally I'd want to live in a big old house in Los Feliz/Silverlake (where I grew up), the BEST part of LA by far. I'd walk my chubby bulldog puppy around the park, eat at Alcove on Hillhurst every day, teach pilates, and become an under the radar respected film actress. Sigh.
I definitely think Acne is my favorite relatively reasonably priced brand next to Alexander Wang, Isabel Marant, and Vanessa Bruno; and Lanvin's Alber Elbaz' collaboration with the label has to be the best thing that's ever happened to denim.
