Endlessly fascinating Edie Sedgwick...a fragile, beguiling woman who met her end too soon. Her life seemed so glamorous on the surface but underneath she was all suffering. There wasn't much to the 'Edie' look--a simple shift or leotard with heaps and heaps of costume jewelry piled on. But she had the je ne sais quoi to make it iconic. Loved revisiting her style and life while I made these collages this weekend.
One of those days...and what a long day it has been. Ready to change into those cut-offs right now.
Leather covered watch: Natalia Brilli
Tank top: Alexander Wang
Cut-off shorts: One Teaspoon
Cashmere hoodie: J. Crew
Bag: Alexander Wang
Belt: Golden Goose
High top sneakers: Golden Goose
Bullet cuff: Mawi
My sister and my mom are in Wales this week, giving me a small window of time to sneak in some Christmas shopping. We are really terrible at keeping secrets from each other and I am pretty sure they both know what they are getting, but I want to get a few surprises in there too. I did it all yesterday and I can't wait to put them under the tree. Now is definitely the time to get those Christmas orders in, I feel like the post office is backed up three weeks late already!!
Here are some fail-safe options for the people on your 'nice' list, and maybe you too! :)
Cut-offs: One Teaspoon Bonitas shorts in Fiasco
Ankle boots: Marais USA ankle boots
Tote bag: Rochas Borsa tote
Vest: Theory shearling vest
Jeans: R13 moto jeans
Boots: Givenchy 'Podium' bootie
Also shown: Caudalie beauty elixir and Smith's Rosebud Salve
The Shopbop Big Event sale has just three days left! Definitely a good time to get Christmas shopping done. Here are some under $100 gift ideas for the special people on your list ;) Just use the code BIGEVENT12 at checkout! This beats braving the Black Friday crowds today.
Shopbop does amazing shoe buying too, here are some of my picks!
Happy shopping :)
The best way to do things is the easiest way...especially when it comes to dressing yourself. You could combine these items any which way and it would be a cute look. I'm using this as a recipe sheet for myself next time I'm out of outfit ideas. And yes, I'm all about sweatpants right now. Check my Pinterest for evidence.
Tie Dye: Raquel Allegra Tie Dyed Sweatshirt
Grey Skinnies: Citizens of Humanity Avedon Jean
Sweatpants: T by Alexander Wang (mostly sold out, see similar at bottom of post)
Ankle boots: Pamela Love for Nine West
Sneakers: Golden Goose (mostly sold out, more cute sneaks at the bottom of the post)

Above are some of the images that inspired this post. Love Kate :) Photos from Pop Sugar, Garance Dore, and Us Weekly.
Since the sweatpants and sneakers were mostly sold out, here are some other ideas!
