A lot that came out of Fashion Week this season felt like an irrational fiasco... And even now, I'm still trying to understand the main aesthetic thrust of the designs, but mental images of jumping into a big black bag of random clothes just won't leave my mind (::cough:: Dior SS18 ::cough::). Anyway, these detail photos from Saint Laurent felt like a glimmer of sanity in a sea of nonsensicalities... I like the "careless-but-studied" jewelry layering here, and I love the look of a brown belt paired with all-black.

More sanity to come as I find it and grasp onto it for dear life. (Hopefully...)

My next DIY project: buy a cowrie shell from Etsy, slap it on a thin silver hoop, and voilĂ . I know, right?

I'd seen one of these on Erin Wasson's Instagram... Cool bags. (And they're Italian-made.)
