Wrapped up


Sleeve - Dusica Dusica

Skirt - Asos


Wrap yourself around me  

Security in your embrace 

Warmth like a favorite pillow

 Love like home


This sleeve feels like a hug.  Of course, one does not initially seek it out for its functionality or comfort.  I came upon it during my occasional perusal of racks at Dusica Dusica.  Dusica designs the type of clothing I love: innovative, creative, architectural and often multifunctional. 

I'll be wearing this sleeve layered over something else most of the time, to evening events or to any sort of art function where her design can really be appreciated.  And yes, it is not for the faint of heart.  But it's a damn good accessory that I'm in love with :)

Do visit out her store in SoHo if you are in New York.  If not, check it out online.  I can guarantee you personally that her materials are high quality - she produces at her factory in Milan.  And she is as lovely- and cool- in person as her clothes are.

Pupil in the Ward


Camisole with scarf: Zara
Vest & Shorts: Pamplemousse
Shoes: Zara

She left during recess.  She always wore a scarf around her neck, perhaps to hide secrets.  
Seemingly quiet, tame even.  
Do not assume, do not underestimate.  
Untied but forever tangled, sits quietly in the ward.


A boyish silhouette and menswear inspired flats featuring touches of femininity with neck tie
& skirt-like shorts.  
The vest is by Pamplemousse and it was the perfect amount cool, sexy, spunk that I wanted to add to the outfit.  Pamplemousse is a NYC based brand by designer Danica Zheng whose SS16 collection I was very impressed with when I saw it in September at New York Fashion Week.  She somehow manages to portray super-sexy without being overt- in a cool-girl way, in subtle details and unexpected twists.  Check out her site- you'll see exactly what I mean.

Sans vest, this outfit is totally wearable, of course for a spring climate.  Want to wear it now? I am always a fan of layering tights underneath shorts to make it winter appropriate.  

PS - These Zara shoes are blue-er in person and really awesome.  I love my Zara finds!
