The promise of Fall came early in the form of Elle’s August issue, which found it’s way to my mailbox last night. I know we’re supposed to be excited for September issues, but dare i say: i need not look further than Amanda Seyfried clad in Saint Laurent-y looks in the August issue of Elle.

I guess the most rational step of looking further, would be looking backward - straight to the source of Hedi Slimane’s second womenswear collection for Saint Laurent.

I don’t have the capacity to articulate the genius of Slimane - the extension of menswear and the claim that there is literally nothing new in fashion. Everything.

But I digress and want to call to attention the resemblance of the most relevant musical character of my childhood - Miss Hannigan (not to be confused with Miss Havisham, see previous post). Miss Hannigan was the drunken, slutty bitch from the musical Annie (maybe I still listen to the soundtrack, whatever) and she was a literal hot mess, always wearing some terrible (?) combination of lingerie and fur. 

My next claim might destroy any style authority I’ve gained (I’ve never had any, so this is a trick) …but I can’t help but trace Miss Hannigan to Slimane’s Fall collection.

Yes? No?

Either way: this is what I want to wear every day, starting August 1st.

1. Acne Oversized Shearling jacket (DEAD.)

2. A.P.C. x Carhartt Beanie (sold out, buy it for me on ebay and I will give you my firstborn)

3. Your boyfriend’s flannel

4. La Perla bra

5. Dropwaist floral jacquard dress 

6. Proenza Schouler Courier (because this shit is F R E S H)

7. Fiorientini & Baker moto boots

8. Sheer tights

And honestly, if none of that is working for you - here is a picture of me and a dog I met this weekend, and me, pretending to be like Annie.

the sun will come out tomorrow.
