I have to share my new acquisition: an incredible Kansai Yamamoto sweater probably from the 80′s. I couldn’t resist it’s Gothic/Sgt. Pepper look. What an amazing eBay find. I’ve just recently started collecting Kansai Yamamoto, realizing his complete genius for kitsch biker cool. POST TO COME ON THE GENIUS THAT IS KANSAI YAMAMOTO.
I knew this sweater would be the perfect match for the trashed Hysteric Glamour jeans I had picked up in Tokyo two years ago on spring break. I loved the jeans, but hated the way they bunched up awkwardly around my ankles. Taking a nod to the Olsens, I took a seam ripper a couple of inches up the inside him. Voila, bunch be gone.
Now they were ready to be paired with my highly prized Balenciaga ankle boots. How the hell did I find these notoriously sought after booties? It was a near miracle, I assure you. One day in November, prowling the aisles of Neiman’s Last Call, I saw these beauties almost hidden among the dissaray of dorky Stuart Weitzman’s and Michael Kors has-beens. These boots had been reduced due to a missing harness (do you know what i’m talking about? anyway, i don’t wear them the one I do have with them anyway)…well anyway…lucky find, huh?
