Somehow the fact that this tunic/shirt/whatever has deep slits at both the sides and back makes it that much better of a layering piece. I’ve been buying button down shirts and black denim shorts like crazy lately. It was a beautiful day in Little Italy, though the multitude of dog walkers made me feel deficient of a canine either extremely large and furry or ridiculously small and hairless to parade about. In a Kumo-less situation I’d probably go the German Shepherd route and name him something really good like “Charles” or “Dagger”. Just to clear that up.
Tonight it was yoga class, cleaning the living room, and half-watching Jerry Maguire while catching up on my magazine subscriptions. Being boring is amazing.

My Miu Miu wedges which had to be ordered from the Seattle Nordstrom (sale pickings are slim apparently) arrived this week, and though Colin keeps on mistaking the pink shoebox they came in for a donut box and being met with disappontment every time, they’ve otherwise brought great happiness. I’ve been looking for patchwork done right for what feels like and probably isn’t ages now, and they are ittttt. Now to find myself something patchy in dress format before summer’s end and I will be a happy little pseudo-bohemian.
Hi to everyone that came over from Kenza’s blog after she made a sweet and kind of funny post about me. I’ve been following her blog since last spring when my dear Swedish readers told me I looked like her and that I had to check out my twin..let me just say I WISH hahah, the girl is gorgeous, as well as being really sweet. Colin’s judgment is that I look more like Jessica Alba and she looks more like Jessica Biel..hmm weird. I think we just have very similar coloring..but anyway nothing but love for Kenza.

Variations on the same for the past couple days. This weighty sequined vest has been blending into the black in my closet for months and I’m thinking I’m crazy for not having worn it at least weekly.
We had a BBQ at our place for the 4th with our best friends that managed to go fairly undocumented, though with the number of lost phones it’s probably a good thing that cameras weren’t a larger part of the equation. It was apparently so fun that I didn’t find the need to leave the house the entire day or night..not to ride to the beach, not to observe fireworks, not to count the number of people from Arizona in the streets, nothing..I did learn that a lot can go down in a fairly small area. The only person wielding a camera was my buddy AK so I’m putting it on him to send me likely incriminating photos of me in aviators and a rasta crochet bikini examining my incinerated portobello mushroom (absentminded grill attendant) and mourning my sunscreen-defying extreme denim shorts tan. Zack and AK kindly pointed out that it looked ‘cool’, like ‘permanent thigh highs’..right. Jeans it is.
