But, What am I going to Wear?

From Le Train Bleu in Portland.
So pretty--that red shirt is actually silk and long and belted. Nice.
Now I just need to look Scandinavian.

From Matta.
To see these in person is to really fall in love,
the silks and the prints are pretty divine.
V says I can wear these with any of our new necklaces for Fall,
some tall boots, a wide belt for that long Matta dress on top,
maybe a pair of those cigarette-y black jeans and look pretty easy. Well you know. Not easy...but.
frye me up, frye me down.

J-Brand cigarette-y black jeans

Vanessa, my faithful assistant always plans out what she wants me to wear in Paris before I go. She figures out my mise-en-scéne, so to speak, and what she thinks will look best with our jewelry. This is what its come to. I shop twice a year, only before I leave for France because I suddenly realize I need to go out in public. These are some of the things we perused yesterday, accomplishing both avoidance of work and a carefully curated thinner wallet.

I want every pair of Frye boots ever made. Also, help me stylish?

Ok...I'm NOT going to Paris, but I just asked myself this same question. What am I going to the wedding tomorrow. Hmmm....I think I like your dilemma more. Paris. Yes, much better.

I like that Vanessa plans out which clothes will look the best with the jewelry.

Swoon! LTB is one of my favorite stores, and of course the fryes are like the shoe equivalent of ice cream.

All of those clothes I love. When in Paris, be sure to check out L'As du Falafel in the Marais...You won't be disappointed.

Bonnes vacances!
