Game Time Decisions: Moda Operandi's Fall Sale

Oh boy. The notoriously amazing Moda Operandi sale is on
I by no means am encouraging you to go out and buy all of these (mostly Simone Rocha) pieces, but if you can snatch one of them without charging your credit card, then dude do it. I've had my eye on the Simone Rocha neoprene ruffle top for months, ever since that T Magazine profile of Tavi Gevinson — I'm such a big fan of that girl, and she wears Simone Rocha so well in the video, I just knew I wanted it. The top is still kind of insane, but as far as Simone Rocha prices go it's kind of steal. I am currently scouting a birthday item from me to me and I really think this is going to be it. Go forth and browse Moda Operandi, their sale is notoriously good. Plus,  Net-a-Porter's sale is down right now, so that's one less thing to worry about, my friends.

(Note: Even though the sale section is down on Net-a-Porter you can still shop the sale items in your wishlist. No wishlist set up? Sorry, bro. Gotta wait).

NOLA



Nick and I are in New Orleans for the weekend celebrating our friends Natalie and Cliff's wedding at the beautiful Race & Religious venue just blocks away from the French Quarter. The weather is unpredictable so I over packed like a crazy woman. One minute it's pouring rain, the next it's a sunny 75 degrees with humidity. This unpredictability means I've pretty much relied on black-on-black favorites in various layers and incredibly walkable shoes (I can't stress that point enough).  Hide your heels, sneakers and weather proof boots are pretty much your best friend here.

Dotted socks are a great way to make an otherwise black on black boredom outfit feel pretty damn cheerful.  Also note: This is such a better version of this song. #sorrynotsorry


Spoke & Weal


After spending an entire summer (and then some) with some impressively blonde ombré hair, I was feeling a little nostalgic for my natural brunette hair color. Problem was the last time I actually had my natural brown hair was about 2 years ago, after dying it myself, then trying to fix it myself, before ever going in for some professional help.  I've had some pretty horrific stories of salons I've gone to in the past that have promised me a delicious chocolate brown and delivered a crazy maroon luminescent nightmare. But this was all in the past because I have full faith in my pals at SPOKE & WEAL SF. They have proven over the past year that they are true listeners and have convinced me via cut and color treatments that they are worth every single penny. I even bring Nick there for his haircuts with Travis. Why? Because they are simply the best. Period.

I've talked about my hair problems before, and if you've ever had a bad haircut before you know that the trauma of having to live with a less-than-perfect hair cut or color is pretty difficult, and "It's only hair" is a damn lie you tell someone after they've made a huge mistake. Hair matters, people. Hair is as much to your personal style and identity as much as the clothes on your back. Take care of your hair by letting professionals handle it.
