The Scene
Weird day at work. Fear and panic in the air. Blah. Left before 7 p.m. for once.

Popped into my fave resale shop. Unfortunately nothing amazing in my size. This Proenza Schouler look alike would have been HOT if it was a size bigger. Or my boobs were a cup smaller. F.

Had to McGwyver this size 4 into an asymmetrical neckline since it wouldn't zip up the back. Kinda fabulous, no? God, do I need to learn how to sew...

Suggested Fat Fish for dinner.

Partly because I LOVE the lychee martini

The banana split

And the sushi. In that order.

But mostly I picked it because Fat Fish is across the street from a glorious fashion temple, the Phillip Lim store.

Got an invitation to MEET Mr. Phillip at an in-store 1st Anniversary event tomorrow!!! Words cannot describe how giddy I am about it. And shy ;)

Here's what the back of my head looks like as I think: I want that and that and THAT

Here's the back of Mr. D's head as he thinks: UGH, how much is this gonna cost me ;)

Best news of the week: Christian Louboutin is opening a store across the street from Phillip Lim and down the street from the Abbey. My fave clothes, my most wanted shoes and my gays all on one block????

Clearly I've been a very good girl and the universe is FINALLY starting to acknowledge my super sweetness ;)

The Outfit
Madewell jeans
Forever 21 tunic
Vintage jacket

The Accessories
Forever 21 bracelet
Fashion district bangles
Louis Vuitton Damier tote
Tory Burch flats

The Grade

The Commentary
Discombobulated by yesterday's news so nothing fancy today for work.

Just a jacket and ballet flats

With a tank and blazer. Still nicer than what most people wear to work every day.

These new embellished neckline tanks at Forever are a fresher take on today's rosette one bought circa 2007.

A simple way to give a tank a makeover this summer: add a necklace like this one from Anthropologie

Or this Marni look alike from Forever 21. If you aren't used to bolder necklaces, white might be a good way to ease in.

My TGIF casual look was not nearly as exciting as the ensembles that graced the very spot where I took today's outfit photo

On Wednesday night, Phillip Lim and Vogue hosted the star studded 1st anniversary bash for the LA store.

These were my favorite looks from the night. Something so very Cali cool about them.

Can't believe I get to peep the man behind the beauty tomorrow! Best 3.2 birthday present ever ;)

Sorry work is bonkers. :( I can't wait for the recap post regarding meeting Mr. Lim! I was having my makeup done when I got the text, told the make-up artist who exclaimed, REALLY?!
