borrowed scarves






Outfit Details:
scarf - Zara, borrowed from Bobby
Landon Cardigan - c/o Joie (also seen here)
lace top - thrifted
skirt - Anthropologie (sale rack - *might* still have some but I got it awhile ago)
belt - thrifted
bag - c/o Coach (old)
Kelsi Dagger booties - Gilt
lipstick - MAC Runaway Red


I often borrow scarves from Bobby, who dutifully hangs his coats and scarves in an organized row - unlike my laundry pile castaways and behind-the-dresser stragglers. I can never seem to find my own scarves, because I take them off and sling them across the room in what I imagine to be a very dramatic fashion, or I drop them into a black hole. I could hang them, but that would be too logical - just like I could take my shoes off in one spot, but for some reason I find one in the bedroom and another by front door. I often wonder how this happens. I guess I just take one off, hobble a little and then kick the other one off wherever it lands. And then the next day, you hear me saying, "Where's my other shoe? Why can't I ever find my shoes?!" That's when there is a real issue - because I can borrow Bobby's scarves, his jeans, his socks, shirts, and even his keys, but definitely not his shoes. I bet he's happy about that.

And you know what I'm happy about? Actually having a place to store my shoes (and clothes). We're moving into a new apartment and I have a much roomier closet that will be put to good use. Celebration/organization time!

  1. That sweater looks suuuuuper comfy. I'm actually wearing my long, gray sweater of choice right now...I think everyone needs one. And you're definitely not alone on your clothes organization skills--sounds exactly like me and my (grumbling when I run late) husband. C'est la vie.

    P.S. Saw your pics from the the BR Mad Men flight runway show--and all your swag and awesome hotel room! Sooo, jealous Keiko. Do you ever pinch yourself to question whether everything's real? :)

  23. Haha, I do that same thing. I can NEVER find a pair of shoes in less than 15 minutes, I swear. It's very nice to have extra clothes to choose from, though. You're lucky you're guy has such good style!

  25. This outfit is so great. A perfect mix to patterns, textures, comfy but still polish. If it would stop being so warm here, it would be on my "to wear" list. Love it!

  27. Congrats on the new apt finding, I know its hard to find space and a place that allows pets. I have the tiniest closet that is over flowing. Half of my stuff is under my bed. it does help to preset outfits the night or weekend before, but I always change things up last min.
    I am really loving this look on you, I don't know what it is but its different (in a good way) on you. You look warm and comfy.

  47. GAHHH Keiko where did you score Runaway Red? It's been sold out for months, at least in the L.A. MAC stores and online! Boo... but it looks smashing on you so glad you have it at least. Oh - and welcome to LA!
