Open Up and Spend the Night

All I can say is....thank god it's Friday. At this point, I'm so exhausted I could potentially keel over at my desk right now and sleep 'til Sunday. Last night, I braved the rain and cold to make it to the annual ArtWalk gala to benefit Coalition for the Homeless (my favorite charity), and then took a speeding cab all the way uptown to the Guggenheim for the Hugo Boss awards. It was a fun night filled with friends, good art (and a lively auction) and a few too many glasses of champagne, but this morning I looked in the mirror and seriously gasped in horror. Who is this scary-looking person channeling Courtney Love after a bender?? I thought to myself. Well...yeah. It was me. Time for an event/party/alcohol sabbatical. So, I plan to do nothing this weekend but read, sleep, cook, watch movies with the boyfriend, break in a face mask or two, and hang out in cozy clothes (like my most favorite sweatshirt sweater from The Kooples above). What are you guys up to this weekend?

I'm wearing a sweater and shorts from The Kooples, JNBY camel military jacket, Jeffrey Campbell shoes, Madewell socks, Prada bag. All pictures by Mark Iantosca. xoxo

P.S. I'm strangely into sweaters with buttons down the back lately. They're kind of like cardigans worn backwards and the girls in Paris all had them on while I was there last month. Micro trend?

  2. too bad you lost your sweater, it looked good on you..I love your Lita's too.^^ I was really looking forward to this week-end just to spend some more time with my boyfriend!

  3. Love the lace detail under the skirt* & sounds like a great idea for the weekend.

    I'm hoping I hit up the beach, it's really hot in LA, so I'll be taking advantage of it.

  4. Navy is a beautiful colour on you!! I especially love the skirt!

  5. Amazing outfit! I always love reading your blog - it gives me inspiration for my own outfits. Where are you able to buy a The Kooples sweater? I love the contrasting material in the sweater.

  6. Thanks ladies! The Kooples is only in Paris and London for now, but they'll be expanding to the US in 2011! xo
