victoria salsbury, a former designer at Chan Luu and now the chief creative of her own new jewelry line V. Chapman, gave me major outfit ~feels~ in an Ulla Johnson dress on insta this weekend. her look inspired me to find a similar dress for an upcoming early fall wedding. ulla’s breezy, romantic styles are the perfect compliment to crisper air and the changing season.

back to black

the other day, while walking home from a haircut, i got caught in a torrential downpour on 7th avenue sans umbrella. as fate would have it, i **very coincidentally** was passing barney’s and went in to kill time in the makeup department until the rain stopped… whoops.

an hour and a half later, i was best friends with a sweet lady named Cherry (sidenote- we text now), and had tried on everything from basic work pants (these and these but ultimately this pair won, if anyone is in the market), to dresses for upcoming spring weddings (this was gorgggg but needs someone taller), to eventually landing on this funky isabel marant sweater. it’s baggy sleeves, fuzzy open-weave and oversized grommets make it just like the store it was in, completely downtown cool.

while i’m going to hold off until it hopefully an end of winter sale to try to snag it, it got me back to my favorite part of the color wheel- black. while black can get a bad rap for being boring, it’s the staple of any good wardrobe for a reason. my other current noir picks? this tiered blouse, a pair of printed joggers, moto style leggings, and work-friendly loafers. and for those of you looking for other slouchy weekend sweaters, try a cropped turtleneck, a fringed style, some stripes and a frayed millennial pink.
