What I’m Wearing
* Vintage turquoise kimono jacket from Osaka, Japan, about 1979. …My pseudo-grandma, Masumi, brought this fabulous little kimono back from Japan in the late 70′s as a gift for my mom. I snatched it from my mom about ten years ago and for some reason lately it has been on my mind. It has so much more detail in person.
* J Brand 914 low-rise cigarette leg in ink – jeans
* James Perse white long sleeve jersey top …in all actuality, I would have preferred a different top with this but for some reason I have very few white shirts/tops …which now is at the top of my list of things I “need”.
* Vintage necklace {made it longer by attaching a Gucci chain/charm necklace to it} …was my grandma’s …the Italian one, on my mom’s side where many of my other vintage jewelry and clothes are from. Wow, how is it that I am just realizing that both of the grandma’s I loved and grew up with had absolutely no blood relation? My mom was adopted {as was her brother, my uncle, who is Mexican} and my dad’s mom died before I was born. My grandpa {on dad’s side} met Masumi in Japan while touring {he’s a drummer}. We’ve always had sushi on Christmas Eve. I have a surprisingly diverse family. It’s kind of awesome really.
* Silver shoes I DIYed last year to look like the YSL cage heels.

I bought two new pairs of jeans over the weekend and I can’t wait to get them. I’ve been wearing the same few pairs {including the ones above} for over 3 years now …and I’ll probably continue to do so …but I needed a few new washes to throw in the mix. So I picked up a pair of True Religion “Billy”s & Paige Premium Denim “Debonair”. Am I the only one who does 99% of her shopping online? It’s just so much easier in my opinion and usually, it’s free shipping. How can you go wrong, really?

    i like your jeans. How tall are you? the reason I ask is because im always looking for jeans that are really long, Im 5’8″ and most jeans I find arent really that long. Yours look like a great length.

    The kimono jacket is amazing. Even more so since it’s an heirloom!

    I would love to do most of my shopping online, but how do you know what sizes in the different brands and how it’ll look. I usually hate shopping for clothes because it makes me feel like a failure. I just never know what will really look good and what to get. I’m 25, 5 feet tall, and about 128lbs so I am a bit curvy. Also being short seems to limit what I can wear. Any suggestions would be great, I know I need to start “fixing” my wardrobe

    Great outfit! Brings back memories of my dad’s Japanese Happi coat that I used to swipe as a teen to go out dancing in. It was black with a big gold embroidered symbol on the back. This was the late seventies/early eighties and it was my favorite go to item (Dad used to groan because I styled it pretty funky. Ha! ) . I wonder if he still has it . . .

    Funny you mentioned the jeans, I was just thinking what a great cut the ones you are wearing are. Might need to check them out.

    Love the kimono.

    I do at least half of my shopping online, too. I’m an avid user of Ebay, and whatever US store that ships internationally will get on my bookmark list.

    I was a die-hard Paige “Blue Heights” denim wearer like it was my business. Then, for some reason, I just couldn’t find that style anymore and some foolhardy salesperson told me that it was “discontinued.” I was totally bummed and forced to wear my remaining pairs into near oblivion (RIP Jet Blue Heights!) and I moved on to J Brand. N O W, I see Blue Heights have “reappeared” on Revolve Clothing and I’m tempted to order a new pair, though I’ve gained about 10lbs since my o.g. Paige days.

    I love the detailing on the kimono jacket – how it looks a little bit different depending on how the sun catches it!! So lovely!
