"It's more interesting to have just a picture of a small detail - then you can dream all the rest around it. Because when you see the whole thing, what is there to imagine?" -Dries Van Noten

<span class='fancyPhotoDesc'>The scarf is Yohji Yamamoto. Bought in the 80‘s from the original store in Paris. A lucky hand-me-down from my mother that has been trapped in the back of my closet for too long. I expect this scarf to make many appearances this fall. The hat is no name vintage from the Alameda flea market in Oakland, CA.</span><span class='fancyPhotoName'>Scarf, Yohji Yamamoto; Hat, Vintage</span>#inline_01

<span class='fancyPhotoDesc'>It is a little known fact that Banana Republic makes terrific jewelry. This Byzantine beaded bib necklace transforms T-shirts and dresses. 

I yearned desperately for the Medor watch - here, wrapped around a giant, Chanel No 5-ish bottle of olive oil—for at least five years before I finally walked in to Hermès and pulled the trigger (happy holidays to me).
