Light enough to move.






Outfit Details:
pink silk shirt - thrifted
vintage slip - gift from my mom
doily skirt - courtesy of Spotted Moth
Coach bag - courtesy of Coach
Boutique 9 "Girlie" peep toes - courtesy of Nine West
elastic hair band on my wrist - because I'm classy like that

Fashion week is a blast, but I'm afraid I ran myself ragged. A mere two to three hours of sleep a night doesn't suffice for me anymore; insomniac college Keiko would be disgusted. I woke up today feeling like my head was filled with rocks and ocean water. Does that make sense? In other words, I do believe I've come down with the dreaded common cold.

Throughout the week, I'll be catching up on the blog. I have photographs from shows, events, and everything I wore throughout. I actually wore this shirt two days in a row, because 1) I'm gross and 2) I never plan my outfits and I needed something in a hurry. I really wanted to wear this cute little skirt that Monica of Spotted Moth sent to me, but didn't have any other suitable tops within arm's reach. Because, you know, I got ready at the very last minute...as Kim and I both tend to do.

On this particular day, we went to a Tweet Up (I know, what nerds) at the AmEx Skybox with Paper Mag's Mickey Boardman, who is extraordinarily charming. If you don't follow my twitter, you missed my favorite quote of the week:

"Fashion is for everyone. Just because I'm fat doesn't mean I don't want to be fabulous." - Mickey Boardman

Bravo, Mickey!


Love love,
Keiko Lynn

  7. Love the color palette -- I think that's the most flattering color on so may different skin types...


    I love how your make-up always compliments your outfits (it's a total look). I think you should do a few make-up posts/tutorials! :)

  13. Gorgeous, gorgeous. You're one of the few fashion bloggers where each day I think, "I'd love to wear that!" and then scour your list to see where I might get it. Sadly, the stuff I really love you make yourself. Sprinkle a little of that sewing talent over here, will ya?

    I laughed when I saw your hair elastic because I just did a post on my blog about how I was wearing one on my wrist throughout my engagement photos. Yeah. Classy.
