My friend Genie—whose full name is Eugenia, which I love—wears these harem pants and I blatantly copied her look. Seriously, I asked her where she got them and just went out and got the same pair. She doesn’t seem to mind. I love the shape—they kind of make you look twice, like wait what are those?

A fine line between Audrey Hepburn and a caterer
I couldn’t figure out what to wear, and I remembered this ad for White House/Black Market, where they were pushing white shirts—“the iconic starlet shirt, the iconic artist shirt” etc.—so I went with that. But without the scarf I looked like a caterer.
And Oh my gosh, how bout those huge doors? They make me look miniature. We found them behind Hearst. No idea what the story is.
