Nº53: Plaid and Simple

There is something about the New York Public Library that is just so enchanting – it brings me right back to my favorite childhood memories of me running (well, walking) amok in the libraries in Hong Kong, eager to find new stories to get lost in for the weekend. Curling up in an oversized scarf that doubles as a shawl is my grown-up version of getting cozy on a beanbag chair in the kids’ section back in the day – and Free Endearment just made it look so much chicer paired against winter white.

Nº52: Marble

’tis the season, and New York City has truly embraced what is going to be another stunning Christmas around these parts. Seeing the gorgeous lights strung up on trees and the windows unveiled on Fifth Avenue never gets old: It’s like I’m living in the movies, in people’s dreams come true. We had an unusually warm weekend recently, so it was prime opportunity to style this Helmut Lang skirt I copped recently from Saks. Love the print, love the silhouette. Going with an oversized knit and chunky ankle boots was a natural choice to let the print truly stand out. And in a little narcissistic moment, can we discuss my ombré hair situation? So glad my roots are coming in relatively naturally.

Nº51: Greyscale







Kenzo sunglasses // Theory wool peacoat // Design’s Collective sweater with side zip // Vince leather sweatpants // Stuart Weitzman ankle boots // rag & bone for Intermix Pilot backpack // Marc by Marc Jacobs watch // Jeweliq rings }

Sweater plus sweatpants – the classic “it’s way too cold to do anything” collegiate combo, (PS look at that alliteration!) elevated for New York City. A simple grey sweater gets the edgy treatment with unexpected zipper placement, while my leather joggers really have become a mainstay in my wardrobe this season. It’s getting to the point where I wear them a little too much, to be honest. Nala, who is cozied up in a cute knit sweater in white, is all set to be my sartorial (and life) sidekick from here on out. Winter is coming, and we sure are bracing ourselves…

Nº50: Oversized

So excited to officially welcome fall and every fashion thing that comes with it: fuzzy sweaters, ankle boots, oversized silhouettes. I’ve been living in these boyfriend jeans way more than usual recently – a surprise, given how much I love my skinnies – so it’s most definitely a sign that I’ve drunk the normcore Kool-Aid. Two coats can be better than one, especially if they’re in such contrasting silhouettes: Love the Helmut for the classic boyish shape, and the RM is my go-to for a statement topper. And finally, a cameo from Nala the superstar and diva-in-training – bring forth your puppy date invitations, everyone, and follow along her pretty camera antics on Instagram.

Nº49: Bare

Talk about a belated post…! Here’s a throwback to warmer scorchingly hot days and New York Fashion Week (remember that?). Lounging around the Empire Hotel rooftop for the RewardStyle party to the tunes of Miss DJ Harley V in 7584284-degree weather called for something that was barely there – and this was the best I could do short of showing up in my birthday suit. I typically wear this dress layered as a skirt since it’s just a wee skimpier than I’m normally used to, so my beloved Wangs once again bring on some toughness. On second thought, I don’t really miss the summer humidity. Bring on the leather and sweater weather, NYC!
