Sometimes this blog is merely a reminder that my tastes, like most peoples, are fairly predictable. I am drawn to variations of things I previously owned or coveted. I’m not sure if this means I have a set style or am just boring. The shoes pictured above are a perfect example of something I was drawn to because it reminded me of something else. The first picture is of a pair of too cute/too small slingbacks from this weeks Pico sale and I was drawn to them because they remind me of the Rachel Comey Feint slingbacks from her Winter 12′ collection. Can you see the resemblance?

Example B:


Red high cut heels by Robert Clergerie


Robert Clergerie heel on my left foot  and my own  high-cut Martiniano flat on the right . . .



I am super jealous of girls who can pull off the whole vintage-inspired-bustier-top+ high waisted skirt look. My torso is much too long for me  to attempt this lovely pairing.


It’s a shame I couldn’t capture the softness of the faded silk Max Mara tee featured above. An ideal staple for anyone’s wardrobe.


This over-sized Marni sweater + sandal look is meant for outdoor Summer concerts. Again I wish I could convey how soft this sweater is in real life.

Reminder: Tomorrow’s sale is at our Pico location!
