Skinny Jeans and a Trench Coat | Outfits

Club Monaco trench coat and Pilcro Anthropologie skinny jeans

Dear Francy,

I am known to wear some skinny jeans now and then, although generally I don’t wear pants often. They never seem to fit right. These Pilcro jeans from Anthropologie come close, but they’re definitely too small in some places and too loose in others. If only eShakti made pants, right?

Fallen Leaves in T by Alexander Wang & Joe’s Jeans

T by Alexander Wang open cardigan (wrapped and pinned) | Old Navy lace shirt | Joe’s Jeans grey skinny jeans (similar) | Born boots | Coach Legacy Leather Molly Satchel | Ippolita Wonderland necklace

I don’t know how there can be so many leaves on the ground and so many leaves left on the trees. It’s like the opposite of the sock eating laundry monster. Where did they all come from?

Almost a Suit

Dear Nnenna,

So… I have a confession. I do wear pants. In fact, I probably only ever go about two weeks without wearing them. I just never seem to get them into any photographs. I still think they’re generally uncomfortable and they’re not very flattering on me. A skirt with a little volume really balances out my shoulders.

This is about as close to a pant suit as you’ll ever see me in (these are denim). I do truly dislike pant suits. I don’t know what it is about them… I think it has something to do with the wide-leg pants that are a part of so many suits. Love them on other women, but not on me. All my suits are skirt suits, though I’d probably buy dress suits as well. And I’d love if someone started making three-piece suits for women. …

Zebra Pretending to Live in a Forest

Dear Dotty,

Whenever I’m not in New York I like to pretend that I live in the forest, but as you can see by the paved road that’s definitely not true. Even if the trees are very tall and forest-like.

I haven’t worn this skirt in a long long while because it doesn’t wear well with tights and it wrinkles terribly in the front. Tried to casual it up by wearing the plain shirt, but I couldn’t resist the lure of the pink belt or nude pumps. I’m enjoying bare legs as much as I can even if the temperatures have definitely been too cool for them lately. There’ve been a lot of shivery mornings. …

Night Photos on the Eve of the New Year

December 31, 2011
Dear Caitlin,

Happy New Year! Wishing you luck and prosperity :) I left it really late to get photos, and after two other locations I finally decided on this one. This light is so much harsher than I’m used to, but the flash was much worse. I like that these remind me of film photos, though. I did get my Instax for Christmas and I love it!

Hope you had a wonderful New Year’s Eve! I went to a concert… and was still overdressed, haha.

I’m wearing an Old Navy shirt, Gap skirt, Forever 21 belt, MIA ankle boots, Assets by Sara Blakely tights, and a ken + dana necklace.

Central Park After Dark

Dear Caitlin,

It seems like I’m always taking people to Central Park these days, although it doesn’t look quite as nice as it did when Lydia visited. Shivani and I went up for a walk before the Steve Madden party and shared a giant ginger snap at the little market in Columbus Circle. Maybe one day I can take you here, too?

I’m wearing a vintage necklace, ken + dana ring, Old Navy shirt, Gap leather skirt, Target belt, Born boots, and Assets by Sara Blakely tights. And I’m carrying my J.Crew coat and Foley + Corinna bag.
