Sunset/drinks/takeout/home. One of the more obvious successions of activities. Knits are sometimes best when nondescript…I feel like a photo of this one might show up in the dictionary under the sweater entry but I love it’s wide boxy cut. I threw on this jacket at nightfall mostly cause it was lying around in Colin’s car acquiring a slight rubber smell. Right after we picked up our order we looked up to the blue glow of this surreally exaggerated moon. He had me stand in front of it and I did so a little skeptically but he caught it with a steady hand.

Since a fair number of people commented on the gold dress from the previous post – here’s a better shot of it in the form of an outtake from a shoot I did with Elle Japan last summer during my brief dark brunette phase (I actually want to go back to a darker color eventually but am done screwing with my hair..too traumatizing when things go wrong). Randomly enough, this thing is by Arden B….I think I’ve set foot in that store twice in my life? I’m pretty sure it’s the embellished denim and colorful faux fur that scare me away. So I picked it up at a flea market instead.
I’d say this is an accurate representation of the state of my desk area at all times – tall glass of water with an inch left untouched (I never drink that last inch), stack of Ray-ban cases, odd pieces of jewelry, weird pointless object on the floor (in this case an unplugged lamp), discarded Balenciaga strap, and multiple pairs of scissors (can’t sew so I have to love them). Maybe add in my Macbook blaring music on the right since the pictured speakers broke last week and my Alexander Wang backpack hanging dismally from a tack below the clock. I’ve really spruced the place up in the last six months huh. The photos on my inspiration board probably change weekly..whenever I decide to decimate my latest stack of magazines.
Oh and also from the previous post – the mesh slipdress is by Madame Hawke, from New Zealand. And in the black and white photo I’m wearing a long skirt, not sweats haha. I’ll save that post for a brave moment and do it right with Havaianas and a cut up tshirt.

Perfect bras make me happy..here are my three favorites right now. The Express one came with a really awkward bow on it that I ripped off as soon as I got a chance.

Some Christmas daydreaming. I am so in love with that crazy sweater. Wish I was packing all of these things up to get out of town but I totally slacked on the Expedia trawling this year.
