femme fatales

somehow the stars aligned, and i managed to get into this magnificent girl gang. my ladybirds are real talented, real smart, and real pretty to boot, and i love 'em a real lot. this past weekend we got to celebrate a girl gang wedding, (bride is front and center), during which we exercised styling, make-up, and hair skills, in addition to performing a few songs live: the ronette's be my baby, cyndi lauper's time after time, and adam sandler's grow old with you. ashley on keyboards, katherine on bells & egg shaker, megan on tambourine & xylophone, tate on autoharp, and myself on much emotion, booze, hairspray, and dancing was packed into that day, there's no way to sum it up without tripping on sentimental cliches, so i'd rather just show some of my favorite photos. the sole sewing-related item is that i made my dress, and this was it's anticipated are a mash-up from me, paul, ashley, and john.

autumnal gems

san francisco has finally gotten it's long-anticipated summer! yesterday was 85, today's prediction is the same. that being said, and with september issues floating around, i wanted to post by deepest sartorial desires...
above, marni necklace; below, LD tuttle 'the blue' boot; i love these mossy grayish green boots. they have the western shape, but updated in suede. i'd wear them with a long dress and shearling coat...bette fur crop coat by kai-aackman; irina mesh maxi dress. wicked cool. nasty gal vintage is by far one of my favorite stores. they're on-point with their selection, and the prices really aren't bad at all...
valentino floral bag; versace leather studded shoulder bag
'bursting sky' slingbacks from anthropologie; alexander wang 'midnight constance' heels
baroque tights from pixie marketbodkin la nina bustier; washed silk shirt dress from j.crewall collages photoshopped by me.
