in New york

I'm visiting the big apple for a few days...
And I've put together a laundry list of vintage stores to visit, but have limited time so I'm starting from the top.
After looking at my route I'm questioning my shoe selection, next time maybe I pack before the two glasses of red wine.

For now, a healthy dose of NYC themed music videos:

Where dreams are made of- like finding vintage Chanel!

Sara Lov + New York is pretty.

Almost as good as spending the day in NYC w Ryan Adams.

drenched In a trench

LA is wet.
The best thing about the non-stop rain is the unlimited opportunities to wear my new/used London Fog Trench Coat and recently purchased MARC by Marc Jacobs Rain Boots. For extra prep points, I've been adding a tartan plaid umbrella. The coat has been a hit, I guess the color and length make a bold statement. And admittedly it is a proud moment when you pull off both stylish and functional in midst of a downpour.

Rain or not, the trench is a classic and if you don't have one, you should consider. I love the vintage London Fog trench I picked up while thrifting or if you feel like a splurge, Burberry Prorsum's gives you plenty to drool over in their Spring 2010 collection...

opening Ceremony

Recently I received a tank and a dress from the Alexander Wang T line as a gift.

The pieces were soft, comfy and completely me- but they also included a gift receipt to Opening Ceremony- offering options! With a drawer full of grey and black cotton basics, I couldn't resist checking out the post-holiday sale at the store on La Cienga.

I decided to squeeze in the return right before my Friday happy hour date with friends at STK up the street. Giving myself a tight deadline did not do much and 10 minutes in I was lost among the numerous rooms. Well worth my time, I ended up with two new favorite tops!

An exclusive Chloë Sevigny For Opening Ceremony Scarf Pullover made with a super cool double-dyed seersucker material.

And, a Thin Jersey Tee by the Swedish brand Fifth Ave Shoe Repair- purchased in black.

Now on my Opening Ceremony Wish List:

Chloë Sevigny For Opening Ceremony Slouchy Giraffe Cardigan

Chloë Sevigny For Opening Ceremony Bass Penny Loafer

Pendleton Meets Opening Ceremony Yavapai Blanket

Alexander Wang Army Silk Cut-out Dress

Siu Yin Chau Neck Warmer

resurrection Vintage

The feeling I get when walking into Resurrection on Melrose is similar to what a kid may feel walking into a candy store, a very expensive candy store. It looks so good and I want it all! The NYC & LA based shops offer a unique selection of designer vintage items that I pray to discover each time I'm on the hunt. They recently launched an online store, making this situation even more tempting...
