it’s grunge time

plaidlydenim3 plaidlydenim1My feminine take on the grunge trend that’s been hitting the fashion scene hard.  I thought I was sick of it but couldn’t let it pass by me without dipping my toe in it once.  Maybe twice.

After my Saint Laurent inspiration from a few posts back, I am officially re-obsessed with it.  And I’m tempted to do every photo post in black and white.  Now if I can get my hands on his star knit cardigan…that powder blue color is just too perfect!

La Boulange

Apparently it’s a huge chain in SF and has numerous locations all over the districts. I can’t believe that I just noticed it! I can’t say much about the coffee because I forgot to order it after all the food I ordered but will definitely be going back to check it out. I was really excited for the french onion soup but it was sadly lukewarm and the cold wind outside chilled it instantly. Boo.

I love the over the knee boots but sometimes it can be hard to pull off in a casual manner, especially if its heeled. I can always put on some pants to tone it down but since I rarely like to wear long pants, I went with the usual black shorts and a long sleeve with a comfortable fit to tone down the boots. I think I could have done a white top with a tighter fit for more of a going out look but I was (smartly) dressed to eat a lot. 🙂
