“It’s all good in Hollywood” (my t-shirt says). While in New York, fashion week is in full swing as well as the heat. I just got back from L.A. where I got this t-shirt and bandana at one of my favorite stores in the Venice beach area – Junk Food Clothing on Abbot Kinney Boulevard (not to be confused with the fare at Alexander Wang’s “garage party“!).
I love wearing a bandana this time of year, not only because it’s such a summery accessory, but also to prevent a sunburnt scalp. It’s the worst thing in the world to get a sunburn where I part my hair – so painful when brushing it!
I have a lot of bandanas, which cost next to nothing. The ones from Junk Food are more expensive: around $20; but they’re so soft, I make sure to get a new one every time I’m at Venice beach.
While I was out of town, it seemed like everyone was preparing for NYFW here – my Instagram news feed looked like a fashion show report, since a lot of my friends had already attended events. I was planning on attending a show with Janea the day after I got back. And I had no idea of what to wear.
When I got home, I searched my closet for pieces I had not yet worn for lack of a special (enough) occasion. And there it was: my brand new black Miu Miu blouse. Then I found some new black Jimmy Choos with gold-colored heels. It soon became obvious that all I needed was to buy a metallic gold skirt to complete the outfit.
Since I didn’t have the luxury of time for a legit shopping trip, I checked out a couple of stores online…And I found my perfect skirt at Zara!
As you can imagine, I was pretty upset. But then I saw this pleated skirt: much shorter, of a lighter fabric and maybe not entirely gold, but with a definite metallic quality to it which reflects light. So under yellow lights, it looks totally golden.
We’ll see how it works for fashion week…
Psst! The outfit worked beautifully last night! Stay tuned for more NYFW news and pictures…
