After a delirium-inducing 13 hour drive north we made it for a Whole Foods Thanksgiving with my family complete with two kinds of pumpkin pie, three kinds of whipped cream, and countless bottles of champagne. Totally worth the hell it was getting through LA and the sketchy gas stations bathroom stops along the way. The next day we had a room booked in downtown SF and tried to go Black Friday shopping..even though I can barely take the crowds on any given non-occasion. I came out one henley and a pair of shoes richer. Said shoes have become the source of much ridicule from my loved ones and made me limp from the blisters they’ve induced (one trip to Walgreens for no show socks and Band-aids almost made things right again) but I stand by them. Kind of the cracked out version of my vintage pair. More disturbing than my apparently horrifically ugly shoes, well maybe just funny, was the amount of people that started taking pictures of Colin taking pictures of me. This happens only sporadically in San Diego but the guys up here actually have the equipment along with the gall to wink at Colin as we run away. And run away we did.

the city w/ the broken champagne bottle

24/11/2009, General

(Zara leather jacket <- size small for those who asked, American Apparel circle scarf, RVCA Sinner dress, Forever 21 headband and cutoff jeans, vintage ankle cowboy boots, Pamela Love cross ring, Balenciaga bag)

Most comfortable outfit ever…I can’t believe I’ve found flat footwear I love this much. I almost feel like I’m cheating on myself. And yeah it’s fun to dress a little more boyish sometimes. By which I’m not referring to SD’s plaid shorts uniform that crept into the background here..

Getting ready to leave for my parent’s house in the Bay Area for Thanksgiving and hopefully some hunting around in my closet up there, annoying my brother, and screwing around in the city. Luckily for me my mom keeps the menu somewhat Japanese influenced…I’ve officially been a pescatarian for a year now and I don’t think I’m going back. Much to everyone I know’s chagrin. Apparently this is a choice that makes people want to immediately buy you steaks (at Fleming’s, even!) and go on In-n-out rampages? And then there are the rest who just think I’m kidding.

do you dream in black and white

19/11/2009, General

(vintage sweater and belt, American Apparel bull denim shorts, Zara leather jacket, Elizabeth and James earrings, Pamela Love cross ring, Chanel backpack)

Sometimes the living room doesn’t quite cut it but the nights are almost too cold to pull this crap off. My feet were frozen and I had to change into boots by actual exit time.

Re-loving headbands, red lips, and this tshirt-thin sweater with an ever so slightly more open knit on the sleeves.

cross your heart

17/11/2009, General

(Alexander Wang cardigan, Ray-ban Retro Cat sunglasses, vintage dress and Chanel bag, H&M lariat necklace, Dolce & Gabbana wedges)

The air was so dry today that my hair dried stick straight and no amount of product seemed to do anything to it. I have very situational hair to the point that it’s not really worth it to try to make it do anything so I gave up after a couple clumsy pawings. Did some wandering around downtown San Diego as the sun set (note the lightning fast loss of light), found a dog that ignored me, and fell for Domo-Kun marketing. In all honesty the downtown here is pretty worthless aside from a few restaurants..but maybe I’m just spoiled being right by the beach with everything I need in a mile radius. In any case, I’ll be in LA and San Francisco in the next couple weeks so YAY.

And clothes etc etc I LOVE my new rather dramatic Wang cardigan and have finally found a new pair of sunglasses to cherish/smash into tiny purses/lose in my car. Becoming more and more obsessed with black and gold and haven’t taken off this sideways cross necklace…my second Etsy purchase ever. Place still kind of freaks me out and I’ve grown pretty attached to eBay. I can really only take so many websites that require registration especially since I always try to top my last cleverly obscure password to keep things interesting for myself.
