socks or no socks shoes



i can't decide whether i am going to be a sock girl this summer or a no sock girl. so far, the sock girl is in the lead. the no sock girl made a couple of unsatisfactory appearances.

i am wearing the manifold dress (s/s sorrento collection) and the amazing skirt and modena top (s/s monterey collection) by kaliyana. i am wearing the compass shoe from the trippen penna collection.

invading the workplace skirt



this is one of my favourite outfits ... from last summer. sometimes, an outfit that makes favourite status one year can't sustain the favourite status and the following year leads to "what was i thinking?"-type questions. this favourite outfit ... from last summer ... has not been visited by this result. it was a favourite outfit last summer, and it remains a favourite outfit a year later.

i am wearing the akiko top (s/s corfu collection), brilliant jacket (s/s sorrento collection), fab skirt (s/s sorrento collection) and tunnel skirt (s/s corfu collection) by kaliyana. my beret is old from american apparel and my mary janes are by trippen.

string jacket and string skirt




what is it about strings on clothing that inspires me to wear these tie-up boots?

diamond dress








the day that i wore this dress was a pretty special day for me. this outfit was a last minute choice for the day. i am so glad that i made this last minute choice.

i am wearing an old blouse by april cornell and a dress (s/s capri collection) and jacket by kaliyana. my beret is old from american apparel and my booties are old by john fluevog.

cool pant



another favourite top and bottom pairing from kaliyana's a/w nagano collection. (and, again, probably not looking on me like it looks on the kaliyana models.) also a favourite: the great "aha jacket". one of the great things about kaliyana clothing is that, although the clothing bears an a/w or s/s label, it is really seasonless. the great "aha jacket", for example, was part of the most recent a/w nagano collection, but when i got it, it was part of the s/s barcelona collection.

i am wearing the focus top (a/w nagano collection), cool pants (a/w nagano collection) and aha jacket (s/s barcelona collection) by kaliyana. my beret is old from american apparel and my shoes are by trippen.

aha jacket




speaking of kaliyana favourites, this jacket overtop this coat, with a narrow skirt underneath, make for one of my favourite ensembles (of kaliyana pieces). i first wore a version of this ensemble this past september. so happy to be able to come back to it.

i am wearing an old knit top from jacob, the long sleeve akiko top (a/w reykjavik collection), odyssey coat (a/w reykjavik collection), aha jacket (s/s barcelona collection) and escape skirt (a/w nagano collection) by kaliyana, an old beret from american apparel and boots by trippen.

3-d skirt


i can't believe that, finally, i have seen the last of tights, leggings, long johns and skinny pants under skirts and dresses. another autumn/winter is finally over (it seemed to go on forever, but, apparently, it went on for as long as is usual for where i live).

i am wearing an old knit top from jacob, a top and skirt by kaliyana (a/w nagano collection) and shoes by trippen.
