Perfed Part Two

A perforated Jenni Kayne dress that, while out of my wheelhouse, is immensely lovely nonetheless...

I spent the better part of the day at the mall overseeing Audrey and her posse as they embarked on some birthday scavenger hunt action. In between recording five tweens serenading a Starbucks barista (and other mildly embarrassing acts) and feeling super old, I was stealthily window shopping with my friend Christine.

Thankfully, Christine is not only one of my dearest friends but also the mom of one of Audrey's dearest friends (lucky break, yes?). She also happens to be one of the most. stylish. women. I. know. Full stop. So, no matter how  much I don't like the mall (and, friends, I really do not like the mall... see: old), somehow going there with Christine is wholly enjoyable enterprise. It also didn't hurt that I downed a bloody mary over lunch.

During said window shopping I found myself (yet again) ogling all things perfed. A giant black suede Pedro Garcia perforated bag and a buttery pierced suede bomber jacket were the two standouts. I'm still thinking about them hours later, so I thought why not dive all the way in and pull together a little perf wish list. Hey, I'm nothing if not committed...

Herewith seven object of my perforated affection:

1. Kelly Wearstler's gold perforated cuff goodness

2. Big oval perfed tights courtesy of Proenza Schouler via Moda Operandi 

3. Pine + Boon's perfect perfed convertible pouches via Vee Caravan. Christine was carrying the tan one today, and I'm fairly confident that it was what kicked off the day's perforated preoccupation.

4. Arizona Muse's perfed neckline photographed by Paolo Roversi for Piece d’Anarchive SS13

5. Madame Wearstler's perforated studs (I think it's safe to say that Kelly seems to dig the perf as much as I do).

6. The aforementioned Pedro Garcia perforated suede tote... This was even more stellar in person friends. It is officially on my wish list.

7. And last but not least, that perfed bomber jacket... all members only wit a buttery pierced suede twist via Anthro... Would be so cute over a black pencil skirt and a white men's T, yes?
