The other day after Target we were in the middle of making some guacamole when our friend Dave called to invite us to his dinner party and put his hotel room to use…I switched out the messy cardigan for this huge faux fur I thrifted a couple weeks ago, pulled on some tights, and re-braided my hair a little differently. As you can see Dave took a liking to the jacket, probably partially because the hotel was FREEZING and partially because the thing is amazing. There was a lot of overall petting. I’m glad I put it to use for a few hours because this heat wave hitting here right now is eliminating the option of bringing it out again anytime soon. The hotel had some pretty cool modern design going on but the coed bathroom complete with hidden stall doors impressed Colin and me the most. The perfect combination of being potentially awkward and kind of sexy.

Something new, right? No really, we were going to get blog shots in after shopping for essentials..which ended up being way more than essentials..why is it impossible to get out of this store without spending at least $50? But then Colin had the idea to just go for it on the spot.

On just about the exact opposite side of the excitement spectrum from shopping for batteries and paper towels, I have the extreme honor of going to New Zealand fashion week after hitting New York in September courtesy of Front Row Diary..I’ll be tagging along with FRD’s editor Anna for all the excitement and meeting up with my friends from Stolen Girlfriends Club. And admiring nature’s bounty of course. Yes!!!! I am so excited. Though it’s looking like I’m going to have to find some actual dresses to wear next month. Time to start hunting.

Been hanging out in the awful sweater department of the thrift store lately, what stuck out about this one was the extra long almost bell-like slit sleeves and geometric studs. We found this spot by a huge building reflecting the sun and had some fun playing with it…

I was getting ready to leave the house tonight and noticed the fast fading sun hitting my dresser in a strangely heavenly way. I had enough time to take three pictures before the marine layer enveloped it and altered everything.

Gotten a lot of jewelry questions lately so here we go:

  • the studded/stackable rings are from Forever 21..bought last winter I think?
  • the knuckle ring and cross earrings are Elizabeth and James, absolute staples
  • the blue shield ring I bought at a ramshackle store on the PCH
  • the watch (I use the term loosely since I haven’t actually taken it to someone who can make it functional since buying it) is vintage..probably the only watch I’ve ever liked in my life, I’m largely uninterested in knowing what time it is
  • the interlocking/woven-look ring is on semi-permanent borrow from my beloved Kristin
  • and since I’m morbidly addicted to the stuff, here’s what I’m contemplating right now: free people crystal palace ring + pamela love cross ring + iosselliani feather cuff

Sunday caffeine rush. Damnit I’m blogging at two in the morning again…

Small victories: finding the perfect strap for this bag for 99 cents at a thrift store and successfully dying it black, cutting off the million annoying metal discs that lined the edges of this scarf, buying two perfectly slouchy beanies, finalizing plans to go to New York next month, cutting myself off before things went south last night.
