Playing at the beach this weekend in 80 degree fantasy weather, wearing Stone Cold Fox Drifter top (love this brand!), little creamy lace shorts I picked up in Tokyo, Jeffrey Campbell Nation Hi boots, Karen Walker sunglasses, and Topshop clutch that makes my phone and cash look encased in ancient sap. Fun to put things that glow in it.

And some random shots from this past week between LA and San Diego…

Time for a good scare. Was walking around in a rainy Pacific Beach last week and dragged Colin into a uhh well, let’s face it, stripper store when I saw the legwarmered mannequins wearing these feathery masks I never knew I needed. Couldn’t find the most awesomely horrible light blue one I wanted from the window but walked out with a black one and a white one. I always need options. Oh and also picked up this snake bracelet that’s currently wrapped around my rear view mirror. And this is why when people ask me where I shop I say everywhere. For spring I think I’m going to start a small collection of droopy open knit sweaters like this one to live in.

Some pattern mixing for a walk across a dark field..uhh or something like that. Blogging is so strange, and not only for allowing the creation of sentences like that gem there. This bag makes everything better…I bought it from a Tibetan vendor last summer at Kobe’s swap meet in San Diego, which is totally hit or miss and therefore quite exciting. And always worth it for the kettle corn and generic Sharpies from Mexico (actually those suck). Would have to take it with me if I ever moved to the desert to live in a patchwork tent with a pygmy goat. The scarf can come along too, since it’s just split in the middle and can now be worn as some sort of a slutty poncho though I’m torn on the sanity levels of this newfound option. Scary stuff.
