We had so much fun experimenting with the early morning light through the filter of the dense woods for this series. There is such a magical feeling being up before the rest of the world, surrounded by nature. I wore some very well-loved wardrobe favorites for this shoot. I am wearing a Comme des Garcons pleated navy skirt, Marsell buckled boots, and a no-brand oversized grey turtleneck. We have some more shots from this day that I will be sharing very soon!
Lately I am really obsessed with shopping consignment for clothes and shoes. It’s a really good time to snap up some of those late 00’s pieces you wanted but couldn’t splurge on when they were in season. I often like to shop out of season for the reason that if I have been thinking about buying something for literally years, I am much more likely to wear it and love it forever. These Isabel Marant boots are a good example. Isabel Marant used these boots in both her spring 2009 and fall 2009 collections and I really loved them then. I am someone who won’t buy something if I see everyone else wearing it though, and I saw those boots all over the internet that year and it killed my desire to buy a pair of my own. As years have gone by, I look back on those 2009 collections very fondly. Isn’t it crazy that it will be 10 years ago since that collection soon? After all of this time I still love those boots. I think Net-a-Porter got a reissue of them maybe two years ago and at that time I considered again if I wanted them but I suppose the right amount of time had not passed. I finally got to thinking about them again and broke down a few weeks ago and tracked down a size 39 on the RealReal. I am so glad that I did! These boots are very glam rock, I have fun when I wear them. I see these with lots of leather pants when the weather cools down but for now I am happy to wear them with mini skirts.
I’ve been on the hunt for a while for the perfect black wash jeans. I’m incredibly picky with my denim so this has been a search that has gone on for months. It’s the basics in your closet that are most important, so it is something worth putting research into! My perfect pair could not be solid black (this tends to be so unflattering in my opinion) and they had to have a great fit. I decided to try a denim fit that I knew I loved, the AG denim Stilt jean. Lucky for me they had exactly the kind of wash I was looking for and they were cropped the way I like. I’ve owned two pairs of AG Stilts in the past, I do believe I have them in storage right now. The fit is really comfortable and flattering, especially if you’re long waisted and short legged like me!
