Sometimes, walking is difficult. Particularly if you, like me, favor towering spikes over sensible footwear. Clearly, Alexander McQueen understands this, which is why the brand offers my latest obsession: a skull-capped walking cane. In black and silver, this accouterment matches my entire wardrobe (not to mention my apartment—it’s going to be a great addition to my foyer). And to answer the question raised by the entire Style.com edit staff: No. I am not concerned about looking like The Penguin.

Editor Obsessions: Organic by John Patrick’s Pegged Skirt

Organic by John Patrick

I have a deep, deep love of uniforms, and while skinny pants and blousy tees are my current go-tos, I’m considering adding skirts into the mix. This Organic by John Patrick number seems like the right first step. The elongated silhouette and dark hue lend it an air of sophistication, but the elastic waist and scuba material make it laid-back enough to wear every day. I might just have to take the plunge.

Editor Obsessions: Valentino’s Studded Leather Belt

In my opinion, belts might just be the most underrated women’s accessory. This summer, I’ve discovered how they can transform and elevate a basic jeans-and-T-shirt combination. Taking pointers from stylish French fashion editors like Emmanuelle Alt and Géraldine Saglio, who regularly rock classic buckled bands with their skinnies, not to mention my favorite image of Grace Hartzel in Saint Laurent’s Pre-Fall ads, I’ve been satisfying my belt cravings by raiding my younger brothers’ closets for their old braided leather iterations. I’ve also been cruising the racks at Rainbow (my current shopping obsession) for cheap thrills. At this point, I’m finally ready to invest in a timeless belt. Enter: Valentino’s signature rock-stud style in orange, which is sure to up my cinching game just in time for the Spring ’15 shows.

Editor Obsessions: Moschino’s Irreverent Tee

Moschino TeeWhen Jeremy Scott made his Moschino debut in February, he wore this shirt. For that reason alone, I am shocked that the tee is still available. I love how Scott throws consumer culture in everyone’s face—and this shirt, as well as his Fall collection, does just that. Sure, $265 is a pretty penny for a glorified cut of cotton, but at least you get the label name in an obnoxiously large font. If only it were available in black…

Editor Obsessions: Japanese Sugi Incense

Life hack: Make your apartment smell almost as good as the 45rpm store in Soho by purchasing a box of 100 percent natural and amazing-smelling Japanese sugi incense. If you haven’t been to the shop, then you should know that it is like the most amazing and peaceful Zen forest ever, plus it’s full of beautifully made Japanese denim and clothing. I don’t know if this is the exact incense they burn in the store, but the subtle, fresh cedar scent is as close as you can get to what the Japanese call “forest bathing” in your Brooklyn apartment.
