Those who know me know that I tend to splurge on outerwear and shoes while being surprisingly stingy when it comes to everything else.. but once in a while I come across something too interesting not to add to the collection. This Thakoon piece, unearthed from the dense racks at INA SoHo, with its Celine-esque structure won me over with hardly a thought. I can’t decide what I love more.. the plunging V or the delicious melange grey hue.
And speaking of shoe splurges–finally got my hands on these croc Stellas thanks to The Outnet. Yes, I realize are they two seasons old, but I’m not really one to let any shoe regrets get away.12 COMMENTS

I’m thrilled to announce that I’m partnering with Sensation, one of the world’s leading music & dance events, to celebrate their 2013 Ocean of White experience. What’s more, their celebratory 100th show will be at NYC’s very own Barclay’s Center, to close out an epic four-city US tour. Word on the street says there will be mindblowing visual theatrics and stage production to complement the fantastic DJ lineup. The dress code is, of course, head-to-toe-white.. so it’s time to get creative.
The best part? You have the opportunity to win TWO exclusive tickets valued at $250 each to this incredible finale show. I’m holding an hour long Twitter chat on Tuesday Oct 22nd from 7-8PM EST; follow me @anecdoche_, chat #sensation, and you might just win!2 COMMENTS

I was recently introduced to Obakki, a timeless luxury label that resonates beauty both inside and out. An extension of the Obakki Foundation, its founding principles are rooted in philanthropy, while its modern take on classic womenswear pioneers a radical take on charitable fundraising. Obakki’s creative director Treana Peake has provided over 400 wells of water and built 12 schools in South Sudan and Cameroon, and her extension of the Obakki ethos into the usually superficial world of fashion is a breath of fresh air.
I’m proud to partner with Obakki in hosting their FW13 trunkshow this Sunday, October 6 from 1-3PM at NOS Boutique in Dumbo, Brooklyn. You’ll get a chance to shop the beautiful FW13 collection and meet the inspiring Treana in person. If you’re in the area, do stop by, I’d love to say hello!

Apologies for the huge hiatus–life has been complex to say the least. Between fashion week and moving back into the city, ANECDOCHE/ fell to lower rungs on the priority ladder. But I suppose it’s appropriate to ease back into blogging with what feels like common sense–black, white, and a healthy dose of leather.6 COMMENTS
