The only kind I like

Acne S/S ’10 Sensational pants + obligatory marble

The feeling you get when you finally find something that you’ve been looking for a long time is one of my favorites. An even better feeling is one you get when that thing finds you.

And by finds you I mean is given to you by a dear friend who thought of you when they didn’t fit her and put them in the mail because she knew you would love them. I love you, D. Truly.

These are another future fall MVP (better visual here). They’re basically the trouser version of my favorite jeans; low slung, drop crotch with tapered legs. Time has only increased my love for this particular cut, so I’m glad to have another, slightly dressier option. These will be replacing the vintage, deadstock harem pants that I once wore to death but are now largely ignored.

Of note, this is the third time I’ve lucked out with getting a way past-season want from Acne (first, second). This is clearly some sort of magic power, right?

 

 

In the Harvestland

The new Harvestland fall colorway at Everlane has landed.

Inspired by the colors of American farmlands, the palette is warm, beautiful and very neutral friendly (!!!). Naturally, several items are being considered for spots in my fall edit. I love Everlane for making things you can live in, so I’m going to be mulling over what to add for a while.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to cue up the Stater Bros. jingle* and browse a little bit.

 

*this is a Southern California thing, but I can’t help but think of it when I see Harvestland.

 

P333: Week 6 + 7

I had a week away from work and I didn’t put on real clothes, so you’re getting a double dose of things that I’ve been wearing. You will notice palazzo pants. They were everything I imagined they would be in the summer heat – nice and ventilated. Glad that worked out.

On my favorite designer

Emerson Fry totally gets me. Season after season, I look to the line for great pieces and styling to ogle. Her girl always looks so cool. The clothes have simple but interesting silhouettes, are impeccably tailored, and are all (with the exception of the shoes) made in the U.S.A.

‘Murica.

If I had to spend the rest of my days in head-to-toe EF, I wouldn’t complain. It’s all just too good.

Head to their blog to read interviews with the designer about the fall collection, why she chooses the materials she does, and lots of collages with succulents peppered throughout.
