Mighty Closet: Mai Le, Outfit 5
Whoops. Future posting snafu — sorry if you were looking for this on Friday. Now without further ado:
Ka-POW! That that, little black dresses.
This is Mai’s cocktail dress, the kind of thing she’d wear as a wedding guest. It’s a Diane von Furstenberg column dress, which she picked up at a vintage store on Divisadero.
Her shoes are certifiable. They’re by Walter Steigler, and I’m still trying to figure out the physics involved. The downside is the pain, the upside is that Mai never has to carry around a compact when she wants to check her lipstick.
Mai looks so badass in this picture. We should have posed her with a baseball bat beating down an intruder. Hindsight.
Anyway, it’s cold at night in San Francisco, so every dress needs a layering piece. This denim jacket is Junya Watanabe for Comme des Garcons.
The jacket has so much detail, stitch patterns, shoulder slits, but the printed lining is particularly fun. Mai’s Caveman hammered ring from is from Fancy Jewels, and her square ring is from a trip to Mexico City.
Another piece that’s even cooler from behind. Mai is the master of walking away from you.
She picked up this two-finger ring in Bangkok. It’s the kind of accessory that elevates the most boring outfit. Not that Mai has ever had that problem.
Thanks for letting us into your closet Mai! You have me thinking very differently about shoes, my friend.
