I had the same reaction to this photo as I have when I see something in a store I really have to have. I start whispering out loud really slowly... *gasp* "Ohhhh, well I have to have thaaaaaat...."
You know I would post "similars". I'm sure there is a sequin jacket (J.Crew), some coated denim (AG), and some cage booties (Nine West) somewhere. The problem is I want those exact pieces so the replacement always seems like a let down. I'll buy the similars anyway of course, I'll just be more cranky about it.
Alexander Wang Resort 2013... so beautiful it hurts just to look at it. The leather tops are to die for. The cuts of his sweaters are not to be believed. And his shoes... ohhhh the shoes... I'm a little dismayed to see pleats coming back in pants. It's a great idea if you have no ass but let's face it, the rest of us mere mortals are going to have some problems. The easiest way to wear the trend without emphasizing the wrong bits is to go up a size or two. Sounds horrifying I know but the pants will hang much better and not tug the pleats open in the front.
Yea so none of the outfits from Friday happened as I felt like this the whole time...
Best laid plans... I'm actually sleeping here but I'm pleased to report my top knot is in tact.
In between drinking, walking, drinking, walking, walking, walking, drinking, sleeping, getting chased by angry protestors, pepper sprayed by riot police, and getting hit on by sexy french waitresses (you read that right), I did manage to score myself a little neon clutch. Pictures to come!

I think he went to eat as per usual. When packing for a weekend getaway there is the persistent fear of being made fun of for the amount of luggage you bring along. Solve this problem by wearing the same outfit for daytime and nighttime events. Just switch out the shoes. While I do have a few expensive shoes, most of my closet is made up of Steve Madden and Aldo. Don't knock it 'til you try it. I ran all over London and back for months in these puppies. That was 8 years ago and they're still the most comfortable pair I own.
Sorry, I know this may sound like high treason but sometimes us American girls just have to admit that sometimes Paris girls just do it better. Last time I was in Paris I felt woefully American with my hoodie and blue jeans. Terrifying. Love that shirt and I would wear it too if it didn't allow the general masses visual access to my love handles, categorized under "things that should only be seen by those who love you... unconditionally". Notice the neons off-set by neutrals. I was going to go the neon denim route awhile back until I actually saw someone in the AG Stilt neons in yellow and decided to sit this one out. Remember, if you wore the trend the first time around, probably avoid it the second time. Hello 80's babies. I'm talking to you. Stick to accessories instead. I bought the yellow nOir necklace (similar) instead and am much happier for it.
I am a huge fan of wearing multiple rings on one finger. I love the chunky-ness of it and the sound the rings make when they clank together while gesturing. And contrary to popular belief it is not necessary to be able to bend all of your fingers all the time. Thanks to a recent addition, the hub's finger game is also on point.
His is the hairy one... hopefully. Happy 2 month anniversary honey!
