Kind of sad how long it’s been since I’ve worn a blazer…this one has been stagnating in my closet for the past year or so and it might have continued to do so if I hadn’t started fishing around for something to smarten up this wispy thing of a dress. The shoes are finally on the verge of being broken in and are pretty much my current obsession even if boys hate them. Socal boys also hate massive cardigans, hoof-like boots, and big feathery clutches so their credibility is shot.
Soo happy my bangs are growing out successfully, been dying to center part it for months now..have decided to just let the natural color take over for a while.
Tonight: green tea, dark chocolate, The Hills, my alternately bratty/snuggly cats, trying to catch up with emails, and maybe figuring out a warm vacation spot for December.
I’m so honored to be included in this article from the November issue of Teen Vogue, especially since it focuses on the ever climbing power of street style blogs. Seriously a testament to Colin’s photography. Also see me this month in Jalouse, Nylon Mexico, Elle Japan, Glamour Spain, and Vogue Girl Korea. Thank you to all these amazing magazines!
I know I’ve been slacking with all the traveling, but I’ve updated both Treasure Chest Vintage and Shoptoast. Trying to downsize my closet before it implodes.
Kristin took this photo a few months ago when we were playing around with different ways to braid/flip/render asymmetry. Probably impossible to execute without enlisting another human’s help but most definitely a fun style to wear. The main reason I’m posting a photo of the back of my head though – I’ve gotten some questions about the way I’ve been braiding my hair lately, which I’ve been doing solely to get my bangs out of the equation because they’re at that infamous in-between stage. All it is is a small French braid that I extend halfway down and pin in place, either to one side or both. Seriously the easiest thing ever, I wouldn’t do it if it took longer than 30 seconds.
