Cutoff T, Fruit of the Loom. Skirt, Forever 21. Cape and jacket, vintage. Heels, Nine West. Bag, Anna Corinna. Gray raglan, American Apparel.

Due to unforeseen circumstances (okay, an impromptu decision to stay in a hotel), I ended up wearing this Forever 21 skirt for about 48 hours straight, but managed to make do with the random accessories in my car. For some odd reason I’ve had this vintage red cape in my trunk for about a month now, and I finally got a chance to wear it for a cold-ish San Francisco night. The only thing it’s missing is a huge hood to make it undeniably Little Red Riding Hood.

high summer’s low down

18/07/2008, california love, laced, vintage






Being so busy working on the new unveiling of the store has left me zero time for blogging, even though I have so much to post. My inability to quench my sick internet obsessions and blogging desires have left me feeling perpetually twitchy and anxious. Scary, huh. But I finally got around to working on the photos I mentioned a couple posts ago. My boyfriend and I ventured north with a car full of clothes and shoes and got to work. Probably not the average way to spend your Sunday, but we have so much fun taking these that the time just flew by until all of a sudden we were dying of thirst and decided to go jump in my pool before the sunset.

I’ve marked most of the items but if I missed anything feel free to ask. The black lace dress is a little big for me in the hips so it’ll be for sale as soon as things are back up and running on eBay. You can’t quite tell in the photos here but it has the sickest bustier and open back. So good. Anyway, hope you enjoy..don’t forget to click to enlarge!

Dress, Topshop. Bag, Anna Corinna. Boots, Jessica Simpson. Sunglasses, Forever 21. Jewelry, vintage, Target, and Forever 21.

This dress was immediate love when I opened the Topshop package last week – the triangular cutouts at the straps were what convinced me I needed it, but the detailing and cut are also just done really well. I showed it to my mom and she just seemed really confused by it, calling it contradiction in dress format. Which makes total sense, and probably explains why I’m so infuatuated.

We ended up doing more ambling about and eating than real shopping, but I did pick up a couple things at H&M – one of them being the white blazer in the post below that a few of you asked about. So yes, it is definitely still available!

Blazer, H&M. Jeans, vintage. Heels, Nine West.

These are likely the craziest jeans I have ever seen, let alone actually worn. There’s so much going on with them – the skinniest cropped leg, ridiculously high waist, and lattice cutouts at the sides, all executed in a delicously ugly/awesome acid wash. All they’re missing is…nothing. I was doubtful as to whether I could integrate them into my style, but I tried and I think I am in love. Anyway, what is fashion without wanton experimentation? I’ve been trying to wear my older shoes and bags lately to, you know, spread the love – I forgot how ideal these Jessica Simpson ankle boots are. I couldn’t care less about her recent delving into country music, but I must say I’m grateful for the production of these shoes.

Sorry it’s been quiet here the past couple of days, my boyfriend and I have been busy having one of the best weekends of recent history – don’t worry, we went a little photo crazy and I have a little over a zillion photos to sift through, resize, and post. The last two here are a preview from today’s session, can’t wait to put up the rest.
