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.

saturday night feels alright

(vintage sequin dress and clutch, Forever 21 striped tights)

Got everything I need: iPhone, piles of jewelry, freshly painted matte navy nails, Russh to flick through, laundry to ignore, clutch to stuff, Kumo, and the whole night ahead of me. Hopefully my mom isn’t reading this because I totally stole the bamboo shade from her.

jalouse

15/11/2009, General

Jalouse is by far one of my favorite magazines so I was so excited to be featured in it last month. Finally got my hands on a copy! If you speak French check it out here.

Also as you can see in the sidebar, Bloglovin’ and I are working together this week – if you don’t already use it, it’s a great way to stay updated with all of your favorite sites and you can follow me here.

staples

12/11/2009, General




(American Apparel sexuali-tee, Forever 21 stirrup leggings, Zara leather jacket, vintage belt and bag, Dolce & Gabbana wedges)

Trotting back to my car after lazily eating a 4:00 lunch on Sunday at one of my favorite restaurants. Mahi-mahi sandwich on sourdough with avocado always works. I know this is probably the most basic of silhouettes ever and possibly more reminiscent of my style last year but somehow this belt and these wedges embolden me to water everything else down. Pieces like these are so ideal for mornings when I stare at my closet blankly, unwilling to sift and shove hangers around. Which actually happens a lot. Best quick fix is to zero in on one thing and force yourself to construct around it. If crawling back into sheets still warm from body heat isn’t an option, of course. Which it really should be more often.

mercury rising

10/11/2009, General



(vintage jacket and silver dress, Target tights and headband, Dolce & Gabbana wedges, Alexander Wang bag)

Both metallic and supershort (not afraid to say that I found it in the shirt section of the thrift store), this thing is an instant mood lifter and probably the only “liquid look” I’m interested in right now. Spent the weekend balancing working on a few projects and having the normal mindless fun. Also went up to RVCA late last week – finished up my hangtags and picked out the exact nude (and possible prints..) that the Machinery dress is going to come in and did some shopping around there..picked up the Comme des Garcons wallet of my dreams at The Lab with one of my favorite humans in the world Chris and some crazy old vintage belts and a cashmere button front hoodie with my beautiful Kristin at her favorite vintage store in Huntington. Now time for bed before true delirium sets in.
