Hullo Violet

I don't know much about Electric Feathers besides that I would be incredibly happy to wear pretty much anything from this collection and that it's from my ex-town of Brooklyn (I am now a Manhattan-lady...still not sure how I feel about it...). I have known about the label for a little while now. A girl came into A Détacher and was wearing one of (her?) really gorgeous jumpsuits. But either way...I am sure you will be happy to have heard of this label if you haven't already. The top dress is my absolute favorite.

I didn't know how much I needed a dove on a stick~

I went to the opening of "Portugal" two nights ago at the amazing gallery/shop KIOSK the other night. This is one of my favorite places in the city. It is probably one of the few diamonds in the rough that exist in the terrible stretch of SOHO by Broadway. Every few months they open with a new exhibition of things they found in a specific place or country (& sell them). This time its Portugal. If you're in the city you should definitely check it out! Look for the pink neon arrow pointing up an inconspicuous staircase on the NW corner of Spring&Broadway. I am already thinking about Xmas and there are too many perfect things here to give.

I am not so secretly very girly

(Lyell FW09)

I walked into Lyell this afternoon, I have been passing by it every morning on the way to work and peeking in. The few pieces i have from there are definitely the prettiest and girliest items of clothing I own, like the sort of things that make you feel pretty, which I never think is a bad thing.

I just got back from my super short trip to Paris this afternoon - I am trying to get back on normal time but I think my body is currently at 1:30 AM and I am not sure how long I can go without sleeping. I didn't really do anything too exciting - lots and lots of walking around and about 20 coffee breaks a day. I wish there were more sidewalk cafe's in New York like they are on every corner in Paris. Maybe the best parts of the trip was the hotel (not sad!) - a little classy brothel-y (there was a pay per hour room on my floor - and for I think the first time in my life I actually unmistakably heard something~ going on), and there was a bathtub in my first room! With Kiehl's everything! In my delirious state when I first arrived, it was maybe the best thing ever.

& room 2

Anyway, I am excited for Fashion Week to switch cities, Marni has definitely been my favorite this week, I don't really know if there was anything else I did like very much :/

Yesterday I had a mini shopping spree at maybe my favorite small NYC boutique, Assembly, with the excuse that I need some 'practical' things to bring on an impromptu business trip to Paris next weekend. Yes, I am going on a business trip, and yes to PARIS. So awesome.

Anyway, if you haven't been to Assembly and are roaming around the Lower East Side ever you should check it out. It is so perfectly curated (Chronicles of Never, Risto Bimbiloski, Raquel Allegra etc etc) and has such a nice cave-like/old mans study atmosphere.

I am very obsessed with this one Risto dress

ah it kind of pains me to look at it! and way more gorgeous in real life.

Either way, I walked out with an awesome black wool backpack as well as a Complex Geometries hooded sweatshirt that I'm certain will become my fall jacket. Maybe real photos later!

You Told Me Again You Preferred Handsome Men.../Tom Scott 2010

A lot of designers this season have seemed to substitute the runway for some pretty cool alternatives. Generally I don't love the look of presentations, but I really liked Phillip Lim's doll-housy set up for his men's collection and Boy by Band of Outsiders faux-beach. My favorite for sure has been Tom Scott at the Chelsea Hotel. Ah, so so awesome. It feels super whimsical/sexy/60s and the clothes are gorgeouss
