fade to grey
i really want to add some pale colours to my wardrobe. i love these head-to-toe pale grey looks from rick owens. they were just beautiful on the runway in all their icey glory, and these ny shop photos make me salivate. i really think it has the most impact worn head to toe, rather than just one piece here or there in a pale shade.
i'm watching a pair of light dirty white/grey jeans on ebay that i hope i remember to bid on. that always happens to me. yesterday i missed a rick owens skirt that ended for £11. i think part of the reason i've never taken the plunge on white denim is that it's so WHITE. so CRISP. and somehow always leaves me with a preppy taste in my mouth, even when its not styled that way. something dirtier is much more up my alley, and easier to wear for me.
can we also talk about the boots in these pictures?! i've wanted the short version forever, but these taller more voluminous (though not as voluminous as the coming S10 version) are really killer, and all the online sales are so tempting right now. but i only have a week and a half to go until our trip, and about 3 weeks until the paris sales. shopping at the rick owens store instead of online is so much nicer, but i'm just hoping the sales will be good, so i don't regret not making some online purchases, or phone-order purchases!
also for the last few days i've been up late trying to reserve lunch or dinner at nomiya in paris. jon really wanted to check it out, and although sitting at one communal table with 10 strangers kind of makes me nervous, i agreed to go. nomiya is a temporary restaurant on top of le palais de tokyo, and until june 2010 "experimental, contemporary international cuisine by chef gilles sassart is served, with the vegetables coming from the garden within the palais."
the thing is these reservations are released online one month in advance, and sell out FAST. and by fast i mean literally in 2 seconds. after two nights of trying at 1am (10am paris time) i finally got a lunch reservation.
