I haven’t been shopping in forever. Like, real shopping. In real life and online – not counting flea market/thrift store finds, or sale shopping. But if I did decide to shell out some cold hard cash… (aka actually thinking of splurging soon) here are a few “necessities” I’ve been eyeing, of the more sophisticated color palette. Oui, oui!

Style 15 / Summer Polka Dot Tights

Since it’s finally July aka summer, I’ve been trying to switch out my wardrobe – y’know, packing away things like heavier jackets, long sleeves and tights. Well, that is except for these new sheer polka-dot tights I snagged recently from Leg Luxury. They are actually perfect for warmer weather wear, which is ideal since I’m apparently one of the few gals in LA who actually wear tights. Coming from the midwest I’ve always been a fan of opaque tights, usually in the black or grey color genres.  I went through this whole phase where I would only wear EG Smith cotton tights. Yes, I was that particular. I mean hey, it gets COLD walking around in a dress during the winter in Michigan + Chicago.

Anyway, I decided to steer away from my go-to black on black and paired my new dotty tights with a fun party dress I thrifted a couple weeks ago. I think the abstract circular print really brings out the tiny dot details. What do you think? Do we like?

Pattern Party 01 / Swimsuits

Mara Hoffman Inca One Piece // Monica Nador Drumbeat Two Piece // Mara Hoffman Beaded Round Neck One Piece // Mara Hoffman Frida Lattice One Piece

We’re in the midst of swimsuit season and I’ve been on the hunt for a new bathing buddy! It’s been a couple of years since I picked up my favorite “Jenny Lewis” two-piece set from Geronimo (which needs a break every now and then since it’s handmade). I nearly found the perfect polka-dot onesie from Gap last year but they sold out in my size, #lesigh. Anyway, here are a few lovely contenders for this summer. Can you tell I have a thing for patterns? Oh, and Mara Hoffman too – her designs are a D R E A M.

Supreme x Vans Power, Corruption & Lies

A couple of weeks ago, Supreme released a capsule collection with Vans that made my heart stop. The two super brands teamed up for what I consider the most epic collaboration ever, based on New Order‘s 1983 cover art for Power, Corruption & Lies – which was a reproduction of the painting “A Basket of Roses” by French artist Henri Fantin-Latour. Power, Corruption & Lies is one of my favorite albums of all time. I mean, I DO have the Peter Saville color bar from that album tattooed on my wrist. (Please see photo below of when I finally found the US pressing of the record brand new + sealed for a few bucks at a random record store in Kenosha, WI several years ago. Oh, the thrill of digging for records in the middle of nowhere).

Anyway, I had no idea that the line had even dropped until I saw a tweet about it from my gal pal Rachel. I immediately went to the Supreme website and saw that of course, everything had sold out since the release the day prior. #epicfail on my part, right?! Continue reading
