Behold Barney’s!

While Barney’s is my all time FAVORITE store, I don’t get to visit the clothing mecca very often. This weekend, I took another trip up to San Francisco and managed to sneak into the Barney’s in Union Square. Since I’m not a frequent visitor, I make sure to savor my Barney’s trips as if they were my last bite of Pinkberry. I take the time to carefully browse through each piece of clothing–basking in each piece’s unique, innovative design, running my fingers over the rare, elegant fabrics, and memorizing the names of the store’s newly carried designers. This time, I even managed to bring my iphone and snap some pictures along the way…here are some amazing pieces from Barney’s I snapped and some that I wish I snapped (thus, I took pictures from the website)…

Of the Moment…

With no job, no money, and no sun, I’ve been fighting off inside boredom with the help of Kobe, my macbook.  I’ve been fashion blog/magazine reading like nobody’s business.  I’ve come up with a few current obsessions in no particular order–a medley of blogs, trends, looks and celebrities that I can’t stop talking about. 

First obsession–the store Opening Ceremony:

Aimed at the young and obscenely wealthy with some pieces of clothing ranging into the thousands, Opening Ceremony is a very expensive store.  With two locations: New York and Los Angeles, Opening Ceremony carries a lot of brand new designers.  The clothing may be expensive, but you are really paying for the innovation.  The store carries pieces you won’t see anywhere else. When I visited the store’s La Cinega Blvd location just last year (for inspiration solely), I stumbled upon actress Chloe Sevigny’s collection. This year, on the store’s website I fell in love with few pieces designed by model and Alexander Wang muse Erin Wasson.  This store has Nylon Magazine written all over it.  Here are a few pieces I would love to own…

Second obsession–A few accessories from Barney’s (hopefully no summary required) that I would also love to own…

 

Proenza Schouler-medium suede PS1 bag in sand (you've probably seen this bag in some variation on the arms of the Olsens)

Third Obsession—Black Cab Sessions  

Artists sit in the back of a taxi and debut some of their music live…raw gritty music–fun site to explore

Most recently Lykke Li was in the passenger seat.

Fourth Obsession—A few celebs to throw into the mix

1. Michelle Monaghan

 The dress is pretty crazy, but I think the print works because of the dress’ simple classic cut.  

2. Diane Kruger

 I love the ladylike (hairstyle and skirt) with the edgy boots and leather jacket.
