Black and metal

I'm ducking in for a quick post to share some of my new favorite black and metal accented accessories. When I first saw these shoes, I added them to my wishlist, then revisited them barely a few days later and every size was nearly sold out - including mine. Those who know me IRL know I'm very persistent and good at tracking down hard to find items (probably to a fault), so I did find them from a small boutique in SF and pounced. It was love at first sight when I put them on. They required zero breaking in and I've already walked far distances in them. If you're on the hunt yourself, you're in luck, because there are still a ton of sizes available on mytheresa. Run, don't walk!

I'm also smitten with this little guy from the kind ladies at Kozha Numbers. (Use code NEEDMORE for 15% off.) I'm always a sucker for box calf or smooth leather, especially paired with a strong metal accent, so this mini tote checks off all the boxes. There's also a larger version of this bag, and some other really nice functional/minimal pieces in the rest of their line, which are all made in Portland, OR.

En Rose

This video was shot a bit spontaneously while Jessi was over one day. I made one edit to get the general vibe going but Jessi's awesome roommate, Matt, did this proper edit.

Hello, new favorite silk shirt under $100. It's a lovely thicker silk with some heft, to hold up to the wear I'll be putting into it. (p.s. size up for a more relaxed fit like I did.)

I'm also fully embracing my inner nerd with these glasses, which I had ordered months and months ago, but I made the mistake of getting my prescription filled online and via a UK site (as the prices were slightly cheaper). That was a terrible mistake. Long story short, I had to get them re-fitted with new lenses to match where the center of my pupils actually fell on the lens. I put it off for the longest time because I knew I would eat the cost I originally paid for the lenses (over $350) and have to pay for new lenses (my local place cut me a 'deal' and they were still $400 – I have a pretty awful prescription so I have to get the thinnest ones available). Two lessons I learned from this: never get prescription lenses online; and prescription lenses are not a place in life to try and save money on!
