So the Lanvin opening was pretty rad, the store is gorgeous, the selection amazing - there's even bridal! Also, there were lychee martinis and generous pours of Veuve Cliquot, which is why post-party I wandered around Crystals for about two hours talking to various friends on the phone, with a long stint spent standing in front of the soon to open Miu Miu boutique (April 1st!!). Long enough, in fact, that a few Rockstar-swilling teenage boys approached to ask if I was in the model in the picture. I explained that no, I am not Lindsey Wixon, and they shuffled away. I could see the confusion, though, as I'm tall, fifteen years old, and a working model (note: only one of those things are true). I do like to look at pictures of myself though, so...I guess that one's not too out of character.
Though I failed (failed! I'm sorry!) to take any pictures inside the boutique, here are pictures of the invite, and the charming contents of the giftbag:
Aaaand a pretty adorable keychain.
So that was that haul. The boutique had more than a few pieces in my general spending range, which is nice/dangerous for my wallet, including a totally bonkers necklace with the Lanvin logo cut out of mirrored glass. It was kind of surprisingly punk for the label, plus it was in the men's section, so Dear world, please deliver me a boyfriend who would wear a Lanvin necklace, love, Sara.
Back in February my friend Chanelle Berlin Johnson took some photos of me (this isn't all of them, and I'll be rolling out the rest over time), and I brought along this dress because I've always had a hell of a time trying to get a decent shot of it. Luckily these pictures are awesome.
Worn, as usual, with my Doc Martens.
We'd just about wrapped up the shoot when the creative spirit overtook us, and a few more poses were had with my jacket:
Coat, Cole Haan.
Probably my favorite shot!
