the trench

i wasn't able to go to the steven alan sample sale last week, but a dear friend ameliorated the situation with a heddy shirt (and a book of fiendishly good stories...and a cashmere sweater...did i mention how awesome she is?).

it seems a lot of people are feeling the trench love. hopefully the weather will be mild enough that i can wear mine to the sale since it's roomy enough for both me and leon.

stripes and florals

image from la garconne

image from stels

i saw this T by Alexander Wang striped top paired with a floral rachel comey skirt at stels last week and thought it would make such a lovely outfit for spring. or for 'resort' wear, if you're going anywhere warm this winter. the top is very sheer and lightweight, but drapes amazingly thanks to the rayon+linen. of course, i'm bundled up in wool socks and blankets, so this is merely an exercise in wishful thinking.

you can get the top ($98) for 40% off with 40GRECHEN09 until Nov. 30. all regular priced items at standard deviation are 40%, and sale items are 20% off (20GRECHEN09).

i, for one, am saving my pennies for the sale in less than three weeks. wiksten at 40% off? not to mention my inability to say no to mociun tees and dresses. new york sure has a way of parting me with my money.

rachel comey rosebud print, pt. 2

i love this print. and now i love it even more in this dress.

writer's block dress, $587 at la garconne. the name alone speaks volumes of my current state of mind. sigh. please, please go on sale.

edit: also at zoe

winter's coming

oilily warm suit courtesy of the grandparents

are you ready? leon is.

we're flying back to cambridge on wednesday. i'm overwhelmed by deadlines (terribly important life-changing ones) and stuck with a serious case of the mean reds. plus, my diaper bag still hasn't arrived, and all i bought at south coast plaza was a truffle from godiva.

mean reds, yeah.
