There is no denying that these are just designer boxer shorts + some draping and folding, which makes me a sucker in the worst way. But I figured this isn’t one of those things where you can just go the crappy route and buy a cheaper version cause those would just be…actual boxer shorts. And even I’m not ready to be that awkward yet. Still, I’ve probably lost it. Luckily I’ve worn them to death already this month so I don’t feel as bad. Also love the exposed seams and mile long sleeves on this sweater..worn with my trusty standby accessories. All of them.

Not warm enough for the beach yet..but warm enough for bike rides and flimsy tunic dresses..the ultimate in no brainer dressing. I was set on finding light gray nail polish this week and ended up with Essie’s Great Expectations..I really wanted more of a cement but it’ll do for now.
I got this dress at Topshop in Tokyo..the body of it is probably about five feet wide and it runs further with the drop shoulder than I’ve ever seen, putting it in that murkily unattractive category I love so much..add in the dusty pink color and it pretty much looks and feels like something to wear to sleep. An idea I’d like to follow through with to it’s full extent but the zippers kind of kill it. Still a very useful garment though. Wore it with motorcycle boots that the weeds buried and not much else.

A dress this pretty needs some random accessorizing to make it feel more..me. That single sheer floaty sleeve kills me. Last time I wore it this was accomplished with a patent harness but this body chain that Sandee from Armor sent me is a clear upgrade, and not only because it lacks Velcro. The chains are thick and dark (sorry if it sounds like I’m talking about blood..and that you’re now thinking about blood) and the link sizes are varied four times over. That way it looks more like it came from medieval times, which is of course what we all want. Since a mithril vest is out of the question. Thank you Sandee, especially since I thought I had seen every last incarnation and limb usage possible in a body chain. I’m picturing it with a non-existent tank top and aviators next.
Had a couple photo shoots with Japanese magazines at my house this week..always fun to do anything with Japan even if it means frantically straightening the place so I don’t seem like a freak and coming up with 14 summer outfits when I’m still lingering on boots and thigh highs…that I’ll probably still be wearing well into summer. Cause making sense is no fun.
