Secondhand top, Levi’s shorts, Lyte Accessories headband, Elizabeth & James ring, Bakers boots.

I actually played tennis here a few days ago for the first time in an overly long while and am, pitifully, still sore from it. As in hurts every time I laugh sore. I get pretty ferocious out there. Tennis is one of the few sports I actually find satisfying..I went surfing a few times when I lived in Hawaii and it seemed like a good time but I swear to God every time I was almost awesome all these idiotic drifting tourists would get in the way.

Has anyone else ordered the Olsens’ Influence yet? My copy came today and I swear to God it’s so good that if I was 12 I would want to make wallpaper out of it. Check out your future obsession here. It’s worth buying just for the Karl interview. There are few things I love more than the things that come out of the Kaiser’s mouth.

Since I’m too lazy to shop in real life anymore, I think I’m going to order these disgusting pseudo-sweat pants and see if I can take the gym out of them. This is probably Alexander Wang’s fault.

Why doesn’t blogger offer bullet point format? I would totally use it.

Lyte Accessories headband, vintage vest and blazer dress, Bakers boots.

Molly Rhymer of Lyte Accessories must have picked up on my headband fetish, luckily for me. She sent me a couple gorgeous pieces, both of which I’ve been wearing nonstop along with my Bakers boots that arrived this week. I honestly feel like a void in my life was filled, which is pretty sick. I walked two miles in them last night, which I suppose was brave given how new they are, but they’re as comfortable as four and a half inchers are going to get.

Sun on my back

Erin x RVCA leather top, Levi’s, Korcula necklace, vintage chain necklace worn as a bracelet.

It’s about a thousand degrees again, the air is seriously suffocating me but at least it gives me a chance to wear this top before it actually transitions into fall. If it ever actually transitions into fall.

I wrote an article for Vogue Girl Korea on RVCA and my experiences in New York that a reader emailed me they had seen so hopefully I’ll get a copy to share with you guys – my first official published work! Aside from a random photograph I took that Jane published when I was in high school. I used to be really into photography but I guess Colin’s picked up the slack for me there. I thought I was so cool with my dad’s 35mm Nikon from the ’70s. Maybe I’ll post some later if I can remember the password to my ancient Photobucket account. Subject matter largely consisted of the ground, people’s backs in Tokyo, and recycling bins. I’m pretty sure I thought I was really intense.

Q is for Quail

23/10/2008, General

Quail jacket, Kain tank, Norwegian Wood harness, Levi’s shorts, Topshop boots.

Michelle Williams of Quail was sweet enough to send me some pieces from her vintage-inspired line, which manages to be romantic without crossing over to saccharine. As soon as I touched this jacket I knew it was very me, the best thing about it being the gigantic knit hood that I of course failed to photograph in action. Next time.

A few people have asked about the comfort factor with the Emma Cook boots – all I have to say is chunky semi-shock absorbent rubbery sole is heaven even on 5 inches. Shoe designers take note. Kirsty made the interesting observation that they look sorta like flat boots from the front, which is weirdly true, though perhaps more so on her black version.

Stoked on the vlog reaching 20,000 views, you guys are amazing. We’ll try to get another one going if we can convince Colin’s dad that he needs to edit it.
