A Week Of New York Fashion
Happy Friday. What a week. Can’t say it was my favorite week ever, but we made it through and I have serious quiet family plans this weekend to help recover. When I was in New York recently for that job I had brought my own clothes for wardrobe. I figured it might be fun to see what I wear on camera – some of it is still available, some not 🙂
The above jumper is the controversial one where people who are into fashion love it, people who aren’t don’t. Brian now thinks it’s ‘cool’ but I don’t think this is how he would prefer to show me off. I started watching (then binged) Younger (horrible font/marketing, great show) and decided to shake it up with my hair and guess what – I actually loved it. My hair and makeup artist (Agata Zemrak) did a good job of making it messy and cool, but hopefully not to costume-y. The above shot is the one that is the least ‘timeless’ but I still like it.
So here you go, what I wore ….
I love this outfit because I felt kinda ‘cool’ in it. Top knot says I’m playful, dark neutrals say I’m sophisticated. I’ve had that duster and sweatshirt for years, and am very sad to report that I left that sweatshirt (no longer available) at the Future Islands concert the other night. IT WAS MY FAVORITE. I rarely get sad when I lose something, but I am very sad. When you find the perfect staple that is a good cut for you and comfortable but still on trend (and yet timeless) you get sad when it’s gone. I’m sad.
Looking very happy here 🙂 Those are the levi’s that I can’t sit down in (buy bigger) but I love the look of them. I wore them on a shopping segment (because I would be walking, not sitting). That’s not a very high recommendation, but I think if I had bought one size up I would love them. The blouse is from last year and sweet/simple. I like the combo with the distressed jeans.
Now to be fair I didn’t wear these sneakers with socks on camera. There was a real bug issue up there and I was getting EATEN, so anytime I could I put on socks I did. But those are my new Mother jeans that are so comfortable and, I think, flattering (for how comfortable they are). Dr. Scholl’s on my feet, per usual.
This is a new top that I’m not modeling well, but I love it (and has pretty back detail). I like the color for camera. It’s tricky dressing for camera because you aren’t allowed to wear stripes because it does a weird optical illusion on the screen, but simple solids can look so boring. So you want either color, some sort of larger scale pattern, or a detail that is interesting (especially on the top half of your body). Those jeans are actually great, but I’m not really selling them too well there. They are the denim version of the Cali jeans that I love (that I guess are no longer available which is a mistake on Madewell’s part if you ask me).
Lastly this shirt I bought at Lost and Found LA, but we couldn’t find it online. I 1/2 love it and 1/2 hate it. It’s SO CUTE, but it’s one of those shirts that needs to be ironed or steamed every time. No thank you, sir. See how the sleeves did that? I think they are supposed to but I think it looks a bit messy. That bag is still my favorite and there you can see those jeans a bit better.
That’s it, not particularly great outfits, but they are me and I like them so I thought I’d share in an easy Friday post.
Cheers to a good weekend – I’ll be focusing on family, reconnecting with them and me, and sleeping (last weekend I went to bed at 8:30pm both nights and felt amazing on Monday). I have a decent amount of anxiety right now because of the state of the world and raising kids in it. Natural disaster upon natural disaster, fires, nuclear war threats, terrorism, the impending LA earthquake . . . but my LA “suffering” and this mental distress is nothing compared to all the millions of people actually experiencing the general devastation. I’m worried about my kids getting West Nile Virus (there is an outbreak in my neighborhood) when I know that people worry about so much worse every single day in other countries, their entire lives. We live in a safe bubble and while I want to stay in this safe bubble, sometimes I have this overwhelming fear it’s about to be popped. It’s just gotten to be a lot, no? I’m so sorry for all those who have directly felt the devastation of recent events and I’m grappling with my own guilt about not wanting to leave my family/bubble in order to help – but knowing that is the right thing to do.
I’ve never understood survivalism and fear of the apocalypse, but I’m finding myself purchasing food online to stockpile and making sure that we have batteries and flashlights at the ready. Am I the only one?
I’M SO FUN TODAY!! Seriously, have a good weekend. I will, I promise. Also I think I need to go for a run …. 🙂
