So I totally forgot to mention to you guys that my all-time favorite fashion website, Refinery29, featured little old moi last week.
Well I guess I didn’t really forget, I mean I Tweeted and Facebooked the crap out of it, but I kind of wanted to immortalize the post further on my little site here. Because apparently I’m that into myself. In any case I was super honored to be in the company of four extremely talented and stylish tech writers, including my awesome former Wired colleague Lisa Katayama. Check out the Q&As with all of us here.
We were asked to style one day and one evening look. In the first photo I’m wearing my Missoni for Target shirt. The one and only reason I scored it is because I happened to be in rural Pennsylvania when the collection was still in stores. It was actually a few days after the launch, and Muncy, Pennsylvania is likely the only place on earth that had any stock remaining. They had two items: a small and a medium of this shirt. At least it preempted any difficult decision making I might have faced. We were in the store a total of seven minutes, which my parents were grateful for. Those AG jeans I’ve had for about five years and I still wear them ALL the time. I’m wearing them right now. The boots are Jeffrey Campbell, the bag is Foley & Corinna and I think I’m wearing a ring from Topshop (which was very exciting to visit in NYC!) Oh and my glasses are Oliver Peoples.
In the second photo, I’m wearing a dress from Topshop (also seen here!) that my mother dislikes. Sorry mom! She didn’t weigh in on the necklace, but it’s Kenneth Jay Lane. The giant rock (literally, it’s a rock) ring I’m wearing is by Adina Mills from Bell Jar in San Francisco. The clutch is Hayden Harnett. The shoes are the same Jeffery Campbell booties from the first photo, because I forgot to bring the heels I intended to wear! I was horrified and almost made myself even later than already I was for the shoot to turn back and get the intended platforms, but decided in the end to suck it up and in the end it really didn’t matter—isn’t that almost always the way?
