I’ve always been drawn to Mary Meyer‘s graphic use of prints, especially those playing on the idea of cutouts and negative space.         This tent dress is no exception and I’ve been happily jaunting in it ever since it’s come into my possession.  The MM Fall 2012 collection encompasses a good mix of easy basics (a printed tee, a shift dress), mixed with more specialty pieces, my favorites include a degrade hem skater dress and window pane leggings.  Her customized prints are unique, not too serious and fun to wear. Can’t you tell?

FRANKENKINI

Moustache Man and I hit up the beach yesterday.  It was overcast and chilly, but still beautiful to be by the water and lay in the sand.  MM calls this my Frankenkini.  A bit of Marlies, dash of Zimmermann and pinch of Minimale Animale to spice up your life.

I just discovered Minimale Animale, which may start a new unhealthy shopping addiction.  The unique styles have flattering cuts and cleverly naming them after super models allows you to embody the magical sexual prowress of said SUPER.  Designer/Stylist  Cassandra Kellogg sums up the swimwear line in these words: ”The collection is for confident, young-at heart women who aren’t afraid of wearing something striking, and also for those who embrace their natural beauty and are comfortable in their own skin.”

Hold It


After seeing all the neon effect necklaces out and about I couldn’t help desiring a little rhinestone sparkle in my life.  I found a great vintage piece and was going for more of a Margiela powder coat, but had to scratch the idea due to possible poisonous side effects.  I ended up going with my original plan, which just proves you should always stick with your first instincts.

Moustache Man and I have been cruising the city for our latest photo sets.  I’m happy to say that we’ve found some great spots around my old internship stomping grounds bringing back fond memories of the burrito truck, diaper photo shoots and general footwear design genius.  More later.

well, howdy

This pleated chiffon scrap had been sitting in my pile of to be continued . . . projects for a few weeks now.  I knew what I wanted to make, but needed to let the idea stew for a bit.  I was inspired by my unconditional skirt trousers from a while back.  Even though they’re my favorite trousers, I found myself craving something that was a little more versatile, something I could wear over dresses, skirts, pants and of course tuck my revolver into.

half way

Every guy and girl needs a good skirt trouser.  There’s something so perfectly androgynous about the combination.  No one makes them like J.W. Anderson, but this pair has become my favorite bottoms of the moment.
