Okay after yammering on about denim dresses and realizing that the old photo’s link was broken and the post from last weekend hardly displayed it’s zippered glory, I figured I would post better pictures of it so at least people would understand what kind of weird/sort of ugly but awesome (to me!) it is. Perfect for the random and highly appreciated California heat wave.
And yes, I totally think that this fringe bag and these gladiator wedges go with everything and I know I wear them approx. always. Perhaps I should christen them with the title of basics!

Oh my god I look SO TIRED here. Because I was. Getting up at six sucks and makes me go home at 1 in the morning. But one of my best friends EVER from college is visiting who I have employed as temporary photographer. My favorite quality about him is that instead of making his sandwiches in the kitchen, he takes all the ingredients to his bedroom and makes it there. Just in case, you know. Plus, we both like okapis. He is incredibly sweet and almost too easy on the eyes (and can even pull off an argyle vest!) but his heart keeps on getting trampled on cause girls suck, I guess. Maybe he can advertise for a girlfriend (preferably in the LA area) on my blog, unbeknownst to him.
And I know I have been wearing the same things for the past week but I guess that’s what I’ve felt like doing. This is apparently my new favorite dress to wear on Friday nights.

I actually went to work in a horrible lazy San Francisco “I’m freezing” outfit but it turned out to be so warm and lovely that I was dreaming about little white dresses and canvas coats all day. I changed as soon as the opportunity presented itself. I got these boots a year ago or so and they are freakishly cool, I’m astounded at my luck for, first, finding them, and second, having them be just my size.
