WIW 8/31 Hipster Donut edition

So today I visited Blue Star Donuts in Portland. Had a passion fruit cocoa nib donut, my friend had cointreau creme brulee. Stood in a huge 1/2 hour plus line. We decided that the passion fruit was better.
Wearing Helmut Lang jacket, R13 cotton cashmere tee, ASOS leather shorts, Acne pony hair hat, Givenchy lace sneakers.
Bonus shot of some murals in the area.

ETA Blue Star was right around the corner from SoleStruck's retail front. I didn't even window shop. Still held to Austere August.

WIW 8/22 Blue leopard & black

Going to the hair salon after work. Roots and split ends begone!
Wearing pleather front top from a local boutique, TopShop boyfriend jeans, Wolford socks, Saint Laurent blue leopard pumps, Kate Spade bag and Linda Farrow sunglasses.
I was going to wear my Target pearl and mixed chain necklace, but it looked too maximal. So I wore my Wendy Brandes silver squirrel necklace.

WIW 8/21 Take 2, much more me.

So the flares I was wearing this morning were driving me batty, far too long for the boots. I was stepping on hem. So I changed before going to the party.
I feel more me in this outfit too.
Improvd woven leather jacket, James Perse tee, multi gold chain necklace, R13 shredded boyfriend jeans and Camilla Skovgaard shaved pony hair wedges. 
I tried and failed to sell these wedges at consignment. So I may as well wear them.
Late afternoon light is harsh.

I posted this look from Intermix yesterday:

I don't have black flares, yet. But I had these Hudson flares I bought a few years ago, wore once and was planning on selling. I pulled them out of the sell pile to do this outfit. I probably need to hem them a bit.
Worn with Improvd woven leather moto, James Perse drapey tee, Neiman Marcus multi-chain gold necklace and sand suede Acne Pistol boots.
Sorry for the over exposed second picture.
Going to friend's husband's birthday party. Friend in-law?

WIW 8/20 Hipster BBQ edition

Going out to hipster BBQ with some friends after work. How do I know it's hipster, decor is chain link fencing, rough sawn reclaimed wood and food served on aluminum trays with fancy craft cocktails.

WIW 8/17 Soiree en Blanc edition

Going to a flash mob picnic on the waterfront. You dress all in white and eat a picnic outdoors with real tables and table clothes, fancy.
I found opaque white milk bottles at Sur La Table and am going to sneak white wine into them.
Wearing Sass and Bide lace and leather body harness, Sass and Bide tank, white jeans, Woman by Common Project white wedges, Marc Jacobs white sunglasses, and Jas-MB white calf hair purse.
Wore my hair part way up because it's hot and I wanted to show the neckline of the harness.

WIW 8/14 Training Day

Spent the entire day in training. Most of it sending dagger eyes to the woman who kept derailing the training and bringing up things not germane to the subject.
Wearing an old orphan Helmut Lang jacket. I had this in the sell pile, but it was chilly today. I finally realized this looks much better with a skirt than pants or jeans. I think I saved it. Striped midi skirt from a local boutique and Acne Pistol boots.
Boots generated lots of comments.
