in limbo

The calendar says spring but the temperature says winter! Although I will always love black, sometimes I get tired of wearing drab winter colors.


I spy... a Martin Margiela gold ring set! They popped up one day on yoox.com - I don't think I checked out so fast in my life!


I'm in a state of limbo right now when it comes to my wardrobe. Every week I wrestle with the decision to switch out my closet from winter to spring. So far I have resisted - I think I'll wait until we have a string of consecutive warm days. Hopefully it will be sooner rather than later, I have a few pieces just begging to be worn!

  10. I'm always so impressed with how spot on your fits are.

    Also — the nail polish — Deborah Lippmann Boom Boom Pow?

    I think identifying nail polish is one of my new hobbies.

  12. Very nice palette! You carry it well; I on the other hand have yet to find a pair of suiting white trousers

  13. G: it's actually a topcoat by OPI for Sephora, but it is probably a Lippmann knockoff :-) I have a grayish-beige basecoat underneath but I would love to do something crazier like shiny silver base with the glitter topcoat.

    Minor keys: white pants are hard. The first time I put these on all I could look at were my hips and thighs, which are so much more prominent in white jeans than dark jeans! I love white pants for summer though so I just get over myself and wear them anyway.

  17. I really love you in lighter colors. It's like a breath of fresh air for the end of the season. And it'd better be the end of the season! Have you smelled the new maison martin margiela perfume? It's heavenly!

  19. You're got a wonderful sense of style. The tones you combine really set each other off, and the result is gorgeous.

  20. love the softer color scheme; this is really lovely. i'm also having the same predicament with swapping the wardrobe.

    not sure if you've been back, but they've restocked the rick owens rack at c21, hehe. no basics really to speak of, though.

    now. about those boots. were those a bargain too??? they look AWESOME. how's the sizing?

  21. Yay! I'm so glad you snagged the ring set :) it looks great.

    What kind of nail polish are you wearing?

  22. I love this. The camel coat, white jeans and stripes. It's refreshing and makes me hope that Spring is on the way soon.
