a striped turtle

This would be a previous outfit. Snapping these laid out has become a rather annoying habit. The time lapse between instagram & the blog platform, also, has a large gap that could be a bit irritating. Mostly, I’m complaining to myself, about myself, so know I’m on your side. I’m putting my money on spring break’s excess outfit shoots to makeup for this semester’s slacking. Those blogger’s with outfit posts every single day, how do you do it? After that, it’s just the Dragon Tattoo trilogy on a Saturday night.

I think this is the first time I tried the jacket thrown over the shoulders, you know, the do-without-sleeves look. It’s like old school lady like & always seen during fashion week, so it obviously needed to be tried. Lady time, of course, is abandoned when you hit the waist line. These jeans are my play in until I get my hands on THESE. Much more 90′s tailored and a little less of boyfriend bags. All that… over “Elton John” shoes. Father’s description.


V-Day Outfit

Her is what I wore on Valentines. (2 weeks late, ooops.) I did lose the crystal out of my quartz ring, though, so nothing is perfect. Buttt, that aside, we had a blast.

Outfit from the past but soon to be repeated.


vintage find

February 21, 2012 § 4 Comments

Smells of Burt’s Bees Shampoo & Conditioner, coconut ice-cream bars, H&M mirrored sunnies… All begging spring to move it’s ass this way.

 (Vintage Pajama Top, Levis, Michael Kors Sandals, H&M Sunglasses) 

The sun is shining & The Do is playing. Little things calling reason to this bright little pajama top lined fantastically with a deep navy blue. Such a surreal find after dreams of it’s near twin in white by Rag&Bone. Mine of course was $3. Need more reasoning? News of LA being my destination for spring break (eeeeppppp)!  If you have any advice for shopping/sites/food or a good celebration spot for my 22nd, please let me know!! With all this optimism I’ve almost forgotten about the finance test I’m happily procrastinating.

PS if you like The Do be sure to check out their version of Tightrope in this Glamourai video, if it helps, Kelly is a total babe.


suede buttons

February 18, 2012 § 14 Comments

Our Penny Lane (Red Border Collie) is prego, so get ready for that genius offspring. If you’re a local reader let me know if you’re interested. (The father is a Blue Merle Border Collie.)Inexplainable addictive additives in coconut water. Like, Ryan running to Sprouts at 10 PM to grab 2 more jugs, addictiveness.

 (F21 Sunglasses, Vintage Coat, F21 Leggings, Alexander Wang Anabela Boots, Romans 12:2 Bag) 

Highlights: Remember the coat I got back in October? Suede, crop sleeves, fur collar, and $25… It’s the chunky suede buttons that top it off, though. Then you have the Anabela’s, known for their crippling effects. I’ve been trying to “break them in”;  just couldn’t bare the stares we exchanged while they sat on their throne. So far, it’s a painful ride, but nothing detrimental. Basically stay seated as often as possible. Baby steps.


early morning bus.

Such an early morning; gallon of coffee couldn’t cure it. Right now I’m multi-tasking with getting ready – finding what to wear – perusing NYFW street style – and mass consumption of caffeine. Worth it all, I finally get to see my mom & sister + a needed facial. What you see above is from the other day involving thrift shopping & various errands. I found a legit chief head – type wall decor. Odd description but think Native American mixed with modern decor. A recipe for everything I love and do.


flannel – stripes – braided crowns

 (H&M Lennon Shades, Zara Leather Jacket, Ryan’s UO Flannel, Stripe Dress c/o DV by Dolce Vita, Linea Pelle Belt, Messeca Caroline Wedges, Alexander Wang Bag) 

Cluster of genres here. Lennon meets Kurt meets MK, the hair being my fav. Comes off as hours of work but managed under .5 seconds. Sort of sets the mood of a bit more eclectic-ness. The cinched waist was spur of the moment, though. Couldn’t resist the unexpected pop of tobacco that came off. It harmonizes with the Messeca wood, too, so it works with the DV stripes connection. Best thing about this dress is it’s multi-function. Either of a bikini, layered as here, or as skirt look like my school version. The deep slit plays as the window to transform.


blazer up

Indescribable fixation on this vintage blazer. The pattern is busy with paisleys, but sums the greatest combo of dark hues, my weakness. (Vintage blazers are always better & usually around $2, need you more reasoning.) It mostly falls just so favorably along a tobacco shade (my other weakness), so day time was perfect for  the F21 lace-ups & night was in-telled with a tobacco-trouser look much like riding pants. (Didn’t get a shot of it, but find similar ones: HERE) All looks aside my fav CK’s. These are heaven on the feet & about five years old, which ultimately saves a girl from fear of showing up in the same Jeffrey Campbell’s as the next.  And all that huge explanation came to a simple lunch – art trail – drinks with friends – and recovery mode, as in getting the heavy musk of smoke out of my baby.


waxed cape

February 9, 2012 § 8 Comments

 (LF Fedora, H&M Sweater & Shorts, F21 Socks, Steve Madden Heels, Alexander Wang Rafael Bag)

A waxed sweater cape that is also fairly shear basically in-tells hair coverage & tweed booty shorts. You know, the classy kind, like CoCo. I had to go for the most obvious, typical move – add the matching sock-mary jane-combo. I’m keeping it repetitive, fedora weighing in, too. Seriously valuing that short amount of time I could bare knees, though. Nauseous. It’s back to bitter cold days here + that awesome wind known to create a hair munching shot time after time. Annoying complaints, but if I’m freezing my toes, at least let me do it for the sake of NYFW. Hate you all in the vicinity. No, really… Next year – sad face. Time to stalk style.com.
