slightly irrelevant

02-17-10
vintage sweater, duffel coat, and boots, Acne jeans, Coach purse

This is what I wore during and after this crazy storm that just hit San Francisco out of nowhere. Today I realized that after five years in the Bay Area I still don't own rain-appropriate shoes and probably never will since I haven't found a pair of rainboots that I actually like (and those Loeffler Randall ones still refuse to go on sale) so I just wore these trusty old vintage ones. Last night I somehow ended up walking in the rain and hail with two medium Domino's pizzas and while the pizzas remained relatively unscathed I ended up a soaking wet mess. Totally worth it, though.

wahh

So umm, what else? I walked around downtown SF with Lulu while she told me about her trip to New York. Call me boring but I'm not really into that NYFW scene and I don't think I ever will be (although this style.com iPhone app does come in handy). Did I ever mention that I haven't traveled anywhere past Texas or Mexico? I have this weird anxiety about being in a plane longer than two hours. I do want to go to New York soon and Megan and I were talking about going to New York to visit her cousin Sophie. Maybe in May? I'm more excited about going to various restaurants than anything (looking at Frances and Gennie's blogs for recommendations of course) and maybe some sightseeing but man, it'll be nice to go somewhere that isn't the west coast for once. Time to try something new in 2011, I suppose.

I understand a girl like you :) when all the fashion blogger are so "loud" about NYFW, it's good that you stay true to yourself :)

Alice said...

brunchatthebeach said...

Whaaa those boots are vintage?? Its so hard to find light leather boots that are in good conditions and not all nastified. And I'm with you on the NYFW. -__- just not THAT into it.

In March I'm going to travel and all I can think about right now is how a huge piece of metal will be in the sky for 16 hours -_-

Mani said...

I'm in love with your jacket!

Al said...

I can relate on the traveling thing, though I can travel forever on a passenger train like Amtrak. Those are so cozy and fun!

I love your coat!

Charlie, Feminine Bravery said...

I'm not into all that fashion week stuff either! Glad to hear I'm not alone in that ;)

Love the coat!

bravegrrl said...

Cute Boots!

i'm not into all the fashion week hoo ha either. if someone called or emailed me with a free ticket to something i love like oh, say, isabel marant in paris we might have another story, but for now - it seems like a whole lotta screaming.

Now may I just add that bloggers in the Bay Area have the best vintage finds I have ever seen. I live in SoCal and be damned if I'd ever see ANY of that good stuff down here.

I have the same issue trying to find cute, yet functional rainboots. Those Loeffler Randall ones are totally cute, but totally super pricey! Let's hope they go on sale soon!

Looks like you had fun downtown! This post makes want to go shopping!

I think those boots used to be on sale at shopbird.com, but it appears as though this information is useless since they aren't there anymore - handy right?

Sophie said...

Awesome Dufflecoat, I love your Outfits.

What's up with your hair, I don't understand the changes between long and short (which I like much better).

I agree. Long flights are awful. I wish I could just tell Scotty to beam me up or that I could just apparate to my destination.

new york is great to try out different foods. even as a new yorker, i can't get enough and the thought of trying out new restaurants makes me happy. i hope you do come and enjoy the scene we have here. the flight isn't so bad.. just make sure you fly jetblue for lots of leg room!

The Loeffler Randall rainboots are totally on sale! Try this website: http://www.shopamano.com/index.php/shoes/loeffler-randall-rainboots/loeffler-randall-matilde-rainboot-army-green.html

I'm obsessed with A Mano (the best boutique in Seattle) and they have great selection. It looks like they may not have your size, but she has other things that might work too.

Christine said...

i'm with you with the NYFW business! i mean i'm all about fashion and design, but i can never get into the hype whenever there's a fashion week. all that to say, you're so down to earth and i think that's why people enjoy reading and following you. you're a girl with great style that is still human. love it! :)

cute toggle coat, btw!

Lovely dufflecoat and bag!
I can totally relate to not feeling this NYFW vibe, it's the same with me too. I'd love to visit NY someday but then I want to spend my time on eating, shopping, sightseeing rather then watching fashion shows all day ;)

I just discovered your blog, and I think your style is just perfect. Well, for me anyway, as I spend my days in kaki parka or navy duffle coat, dark skinny jeans, striped or checked top and Fjallraven Kanken!
And the food pics are mouthwatering!
