  2. Today’s work outfit. This is my wool Greek fisherman’s cap, which I thought topped off this rainy day outfit nicely. Not pictured: my white Hublot raincoat.

  3. On the limits of knowledge →

    Agree or disagree: while organized religious institutions are essentially a “collective mental disorder,” none of us actually KNOW the nature of reality or the reason for consciousness. Life in the universe actually might exist in some sort of spiritual context, and our inability to find…

    Love.

  4. Been a long while since I last posted what with starting work full time so here’s today’s outfit and the hat I just bought a few weeks ago. Sort of a cloche/bowler hybrid. It’s a lovely shade of rust orange with golden orange trim. I like this outfit because the color blocking of the dress and the jacket combo imitates a full suit. Sort of a trompe l’oeil effect which I love. The dress and shoes are Gap, the hat’s brand is Grace Hats, which I found in a lovely (but expensive) boutique in Manhattan called Deja Vu Boutique. They also do good tailoring work there though.

  5. Mad Men’s Christina Hendricks Talks Vintage Clothing | Harper’s Bazaar The Look (by Hello Style)

    Christina Hendricks is officially my style soulmate. 

  6. Funny Face: great fashion, terrible romantic pairing.

    Seriously, Fred Astaire looks more like her great-uncle during the film than a romantic interest. Also, the ridiculous side-plot about how terribly evil beatniks are.

    This lookbook from Natasha Coverdale’s line of scarves, Blazon, is so incredibly fun. Who knew birds can make amazing scarf models? 

    I hereby dedicate this post to mechafaux.

  8. On nationalistic pride

    dearcoquette:

    Are you proud to be an American?


    No. I have a deep appreciation for the privileges my citizenship affords me, but I am highly suspect of the tribal nature of the human condition and I consider nationalistic pride to be a particularly ugly and regressive emotion reserved for simpletons and the charlatans who hope to take advantage of them.

    All of this.

  9. Today’s work outfit. I really like this blazer, which is actually from a fabulously flattering black suit I have. Been trying to mix it up while I can though. Summer casual office.

  10. Outfit for my first day of work today. Mostly subdued and professional with some fun, quirky pops to keep it me.
    (Crap I keep posting this in the wrong tumblr. Oops!)

    there’s a lot right with this

    I really hope this is a Grace Jones inspired collection. I would also not object to having any of these pieces in my wardrobe.

  12. Jazz Age Lawn Party yesterday on Governors Island. A little closer to Downton Abbey/late 1910/early 1920s than jazz age proper but whatever. Fun times.

  14. Today&#8217;s outfit. My thigh-high stockings unfortunately insist of sliding down and turning into knee-highs. I should have worn my garter belt. Oh well. The dress was a birthday gift from my grandmother and was particularly appropriate this unseasonably chilly June day.

  15. I don’t just love hats but also fascinators and other more whimsical headpieces (they’re all hats to me but I know some would quibble). You may recognize the second (the orange miniature pillbox) from my current tumblr-picture - my fabulous  mother actually made it for me.
