In the All Time

September 7, 2010

Hana Bay shirt via my ex boyfriend’s closet, American Apparel shorts, Alexander Wang Abbey sandals via Barney’s NY, Tuleste Market necklace and belt via Shopbop, Michael Kors watch

I may just need to keep this shirt. It’s that worn-in softness that you can live in and not feel worn out in. It’s the shirt you lie next to your love in, it’s the shirt that you lean close in, it’s the shirt that’s with you in your meantime. I’m in my meantime. What does that even mean? Life isn’t a meantime- it’s an all time. I just realized I don’t like that word anymore.

Relationships are born and they die and yeah, so that’s life. But some people say that the frame between these relationships is your meantime. That those who enter and leave- they’re your meantimes until you find the one. But for me? They are the ones who loved me all of the time. And that doesn’t sound like a meantime to me.

I’m just happy that the one who let me borrow this shirt is still my friend- the worn-in softness kind. Life’s short. Keep the ones you love/loved around.


What else is happening in my all time besides vowing to use “simultaneously” instead of “in the meantime” because it sounds more action-focused? This week I’m looking forward to seeing two New York City bloggers and friends, James of The Mod Revival and Gabe of Pleats Are For Lovers and Gabe Alonso. On Friday, I’ll be out around Los Angeles for the highly-anticipated Fashion Night Out where I’ll be stopping by The Grove to hang out with my fellow Two Point Oh! LA members at the Bloggers’ Cafè. Here’s to a a short work week with fabulous fashion and fashionably fabulous friends!

    Chère Mel, your shaped legs obviously are made to flirt with this kind of short denim shorts, AND this “One bare shoulder effect” dedicated to match them on such a sexy / laid back way !!!
    ps: Your words are delightfully full of sensitivity, and it Always sounds like a rhetorical Pleasure Dear.

    à Bientôt, Antoine

    I remember when I broke up with my boyfriend, I kept one of his sweaters. It looked way better on me though ( I think…)

    Gorgeous outfit!

    HELLO gorgeous! this look is so you and those shoes made me drool a little.

    I think this shirts works really well as an oversized tunic. And I think its amazing that you’ve been able to stay friends with an ex-bf. I’ve only semi-managed to stay friends with one of mine. but I certainly agree with the sentiment – love is too scarce and it should be fostered in as many ways as possible.

    xoxo, Ashley

    to die for shoes.

  20. September 9, 2010 1:47 pm

    This is the shirt you were talking about!! I love it! I imagined it to be a little more… Hawaiian. But I’m glad it’s not 🙂 And I really loved your idea about buttoning the buttons off-center like you have here.

    Sometimes, those meanwhiles are better than the relationships that don’t work out 😉

    As for tomorrow, I think I’m gonna stop by the 3.1/Refinery 29 party and maybe Melrose (where the McQueen and Jacobs stores are, because they’re my faves!) I’ll probably be getting there pretty late because I have a company dinner at 6pm, but let’s keep in touch. I really wanna see you and Becs!
