good morning seattle

Took a little trip up to Portland and Seattle, including a drive through that infamous town of vampiric fame, Forks.  I failed to find any sparkly, sharp-toothed men, but it was interesting to see how eighty percent of the establishments had named or renamed themselves to pertain to the Twilight trilogy.

More interesting was my short visit to Seattle.  Was able to stop by the best Nordstroms I’ve ever seen.  Celine!  Alexander Wang!  Be still my beating heart… Apparently it’s the flagship, at least, that was what the very polite and attentive staff told me.  The Army Surplus storefront was also full of boots and bags that I was keen to get my hands on, but I only caught sight of that the night before my departure.  Guess I’ll have to head back to Seattle again soon!

more epaulette action

These heels are something.  They make you look like you have legs up to your chin.  When I visited the Theory boutique on Melrose this past summer I instantly fell in love with them and put the final pair in my size on hold.  I got home a few hours late to five voicemails.  I had been called repeatedly by the boutique girls to check if I still wanted them because paying customers were there desperately trying to buy them.  Some things are just meant to be…

Small caveat: they force you to walk in a sort of strut because it is nearly impossible to do a heel to toe step in them.  Note to self: keep practicing a my somewhat sloppy imitation of a model-esque lope.

theyskens and t by alexander wang


As promised some stills of Theyskens’ Theory SS2012 collection.  Aren’t they gorgeous?  And if you’ve watched the runway video below as many times as I have you gain a real appreciation for the movement and materials used in this collection.  So perfect in so many ways, between this and his resort collection I think I’m headed for a financial crisis over the next 12 months.

Below are two of my favorite looks from Alexander Wang’s SS2012 T collection and I’ve got to say that as much as I like these pieces and a few others, I’m not as eager to steal everything in it the way that I am about the current fall collection which is completely insanely wonderful.  Or the resort collection for that matter.  Maybe that’s a good thing so I can save up for a piece or two from his main line in the spring?

straps + leather + theory

(Theysken’s Theory Small Crossbody Bag, BlackMilk Cape, BlackMilk Cap Sleeve Velvet Bodysuit, One Teaspoon Shorts)

Love this Theysken’s Theory bag; the criss-crossed straps make all the difference.  The leather is sleek, the suede interior is buttery soft, and the size is also perfect.  Just large enough for all the essentials, it could even fit an iPad.  Not that I own one myself but now that I have the perfect bag to fit inside of it I can definitely start hoping to get one this Christmas…
