Gold Heels & Grey Hosiery, oh how you have been forgotten!

1515_GreytightsandSocks

This was such a good pairing!

 

Now it seems that so many great hosiery/heel combos have been tossed aside for leggings and sneakers. So sad!! This was so chic.

The Reading List….Art of Armor

artofarmor_gifHow amazing are these Samurai Costumes?

 

This was one of the coolest things I saw on my trip to LA this Fall. The Japanese Samurai exhibit at LACMA was SO cool that I needed to share some of the images from the book with you. You can’t imagine the detail of this Armor unless you see these pieces in person.

 

The most unexpected thing I saw was the shoelace sort of trim they wove in and out of the armor. Such a simple material but it was woven so intricately and in the most beautiful colors, that it ended up looking so rich. I could totally see these pieces inspiring  great weaving details for the runway.

The Best of The Sartorialist 2014

I loved the happy accident of this gentleman passing by as I snapped a photo of this charming young woman.

 

As I look back on 2014, it’s so interesting to see menswear and womenswear become more and more similar.

The Best of The Sartorialist 2014

122013As0708WebAs i’m looking back on 2014 this shot stands out in my mind.

 

There’s a great modernity to this young woman. I love that the aged tiled steps she sits on nod to the past, but her clothes hint to the future. She’s cool, modern, and has her own slightly-tomboyish sense of style.
