All To All










The other day, a group of us went to lunch at Ippudo, since our friend Lucrecia was paying NYC a short visit. It was a bit of an inadvertent blogger lunch, with Lucrecia from Fashion Is Poison, her beau Jack, Joelle from The Owls Are Not What They Seem, Jason from Citizen Couture and Mimi from Brook&Lyn. It was my first time meeting Jack, Jason and Mimi, but we immediately had a great group dynamic - you wouldn't have known we weren't completely familiar with one another. I guess it helps when you already know each other's blogs:) Joelle was still recovering from food poisoning and I was unaware of this secret vegetarian ramen option (I got the noodle salad), but we still had a great time. Naturally, being so close to Momofuku Milk Bar, we had to make a stop for cookies and soft serve. Magic.

So, you all know that I'm the worst blogger ever and I forget to bring my camera most of the time. This was no different. I wasn't thinking like a blogger - I just wanted to catch up with my friends and meet some new ones. But luckily, we had a very talented street style photographer (Jason) on hand. Hopefully he'll put some photos up soon!

Outfit Details:
dress (modified Clara, I just made one for myself) - Postlapsaria
shoes - Jeffrey Campbell (see more outfits with these shoes here)
Baby Ruche bag in blush - courtesy of Jenny N. Design (see other ways I wore it here)

Makeup notes: MAC Pink Plaid lipstick, MAC blacktrack fluidline on eyes, MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Petticoat on cheeks

Outfit note: I have quite a bit of leg before risking anything showing (I have an extremely short torso and long legs/thighs) - but when wearing short skirts and dresses, I wear matching hotpants underneath. That way, I don't have to worry about flashing anyone while walking up the stairs, or when a gust of wind comes by.


Love love,
Keiko Lynn

p.s. "All To All" has nothing to do with this post, but it has been in heavy rotation ever since the newest Broken Social Scene album came out. It's my summer song! You can give it a listen here.

    You are a girl after my own heart! I love puffy sleeves, pussy bows, ruffles, and rosettes as much as you seem to. :)

  20. Your idea about using hot pants makes you more of a fashion genius in my book.

    And your love of Broken Social Scene makes you even more awesome in my book as well. I'm going to see them later this summer with The Wooden Birds. So excited!

  21. I am the same way! (Short torso, long legs) My friends always think I buy dresses that are too short but usually they fit fine haha also, your dress is adorable! I love the pieces you make for postlapsaria :)

  22. Living in windy Wellington - hotpants or boyshorts are like a necessity here. Your dress is adorable by the way.

    Also am new reader to your blog.

  26. The colors of your dress are lovely and I absolutely adore the lace top with the big bow detail.

  53. Sounds like a fun outing! I love your dress

    ReplyDelete
  54. You are, after all, a fun-loving girl before you are a blogger. Not everything is blog worthy and not everything that is blog worthy needs to go on a blog. You live your life, not live life for your blog. SO I think you're okay. Nothing bad about enjoying time.

    And in my 10+ years of blogging... I've realized, most people I know don't really like their pictures taken anyway.

    I LOVE THAT DRESS. So playful and charming, as is most of your wardrobe!
