I spied this sweater at local boutique Equation while taking an A/C break during a sweltering art fair in early June. I left it behind, daydreamed about it for two weeks, and then caved and bought it. The skull on the back isn’t printed on, it’s made of real stitches in thin black thread. I also loved the two black bands on the right sleeve and subtly curved hem which give the sweater a bit more personality from the front. Though the back is the best part, obviously. read more

This sweater was a birthday purchase back in January, but it’s been a little tough to style. It’s made from a lovely, soft cashmere but is also super thin and tricky to layer due to it’s shape. Luckily, we’re having some actual spring weather instead of moving directly from -30 degrees to 85+ degrees, so now’s the perfect time to trot it out! I’m a sucker for skull prints, but love that this one includes roses as well. read more

Nope, didn’t wear this today. Still feeling under the weather, though creeping toward recovery. This was worn before Christmas to a very unusual occasion: I had a work meeting at my house! This allowed me to wear tall heels on a slippery winter’s day. Just clambering out into our street for these photos made me aware that such a footwear choice for out-of-the-house meetings would have been disastrous, but it felt fun to sneak them in for a day of working and collaborating inside. read more
