Black Pearl

(Cotton On cardigan, H&M top, vintage shorts and bag, Via Spiga shoes)

I stumbled upon the most perfect evening light not too far from my house, in between a church and a rustic old lot shaded by trees. My favorite time to take photos is just when the sun is setting and the light is filtering through in the background just right.
Lately, I’ve been inspired by the latest Spring ’11 shows, particularly Acne. Their dark sheer layers got the best of me. My buckle shoes look scary, and trust me, they can be. I actually fell down a small flight of stairs in them a while back, but I think I’m gaining control over these monsters. They are becoming my favorite pair to wear for work/castings/anytime I wanna feel super giant. I’m also a sucker for anything tailored and boyish…hence the man shorts, which will have to do until this heat wave passes. Crazy how the day it officially becomes Fall, it becomes way hotter than it was this whole Summer! I’m kind of entering a state of hibernation, refusing to go out in the heat unless I really really have to. Luckily, things cool down at night. Until Fall really starts to kick in, looks like winter coats, scarves, and all the things I want to be wearing, will be tucked away!

And here I am featured in Lou Lou magazine, based in Canada. Such a nice surprise and kind words. Thanks Lou Lou and much thanks to the lovely Pats for sending me the pic! xoxo

    I absolutely love, love, LOVE this look. I’m also an Acne obsessive and total sucker for anything tailored, tweedy or blouse-esque… so basically this look is the stuff of my dreams. You have such great personal style. And congrats on the magazine feature X

    j’adore, and as you say, the light is perfect.

    Oh no, cannot believe you fell down the stairs in those! Fashion can be a hazard to your health, I fell down the stone steps at work wearing my Chloes and ended up with a bruised knee cap for a month!

    Lastly, the sheer blouse is incredible, I keep seeing them everywhere and it has me wondering why I don’t have a sheer black blouse!

    Manor West focuses on three basic elements to stand out in the San Francisco Nightlife scene: the design, the crowd and the talent. As you walk into Manor West, you are greeted by an impressive 30 ft backdrop designed by Yelena Yemchuk, former Creative Director for the Smashing Pumpkins. The rest of the interior, a direct antithesis to the unassuming (and almost hidden) exterior of the venue, feels comfortable and spacious with high oak ceilings and a raised VIP bottle service area.

    The 4,500 square foot venue has the feel of a smaller, more intimate venue. Creative placement of bars, bathrooms and VIP areas solve the flow problems that some clubs can experience on busy nights by releasing bottlenecks and making it easier to access the essential features of the club. Raised VIP booths surround the DJ Booth and allow VIP groups access to a private area with views of the entire club while a large VIP area in the back of the club allows groups of 20 to 30 to celebrate together. Talent like Caroline D’Amore, DJ Spider, Dirt Nasty, Andre Legacy and local favorites Designer Djs, Cams and Zhaldee have already graced the decks and SF can look forward to an impressive lineup of top notch DJs and bands to show up throughout 2010.

    Saw you in Free People. I’ve read your sister’s blog for awhile but for some reason I didn’t realize you two were related. When I saw the Free People catalogue, I thought it was Dylana! But you are very lovely and I adore these photos. I just got some shorts that are quite similar.

    I must show my thanks to the writer just for rescuing me from such a crisis. As a result of looking throughout the world-wide-web and seeing thoughts which were not productive, I assumed my entire life was well over. Being alive devoid of the solutions to the difficulties you’ve resolved as a result of your entire site is a serious case, as well as the kind which could have in a negative way affected my entire career if I had not discovered the website. Your personal natural talent and kindness in dealing with almost everything was helpful. I’m not sure what I would have done if I hadn’t come upon such a point like this. I am able to at this point relish my future. Thanks so much for your high quality and effective help. I will not hesitate to propose your web site to any individual who needs to have counseling on this problem.International phone calling |
