4th

I figure the 4th of July is perhaps the best possible day to dress kind of trashily – everyone’s at least buzzed if not fully intoxicated, the humidity levels are high enough to induce wavy hair, and people don’t seem to bother putting on much more than a swimsuit around here anyway. I spent the day hanging out with some friends I haven’t seen in way too long and around a hundred gay men at a (catered!) house party, who promptly decided that I looked like a Bond girl in my romper and proceeded to refer to me as such for the rest of the time. This was further assisted by a neon watergun I tucked into my belt later. My boyfriend and I took a break to grab some lunch/air and found this nice baby blue wall to abuse. The fireworks later on were so abnormally awesome that I almost didn’t mind stepping in vomit. Sick. SO glad I was wearing heels for that one.

More zips, more studs

02/07/2008, General


I am of the probably very small party that thinks that Bebe comes out with some pretty alright shoes once in a while. You just have to look past the rhinestone encrusted “athletic wear”. I originally wanted to go to check this pair out but once I saw these on the busty mannequin, I knew I needed them. Once I handled them, I fell in love with the aggressive textured leather and S&M zippers. Mmm. Obviously, I wish the heel was chunkier, but I’ll try to deal with it. Lulu argued that the stripper heel kind of ruined them, but, well, I know when I want something, and I’ve never gotten the ’04 Balenciagas that they’re a knockoff of off my mind. It’s inexplicably satisfying to zip the foot into a sandal. I seem to be falling for zippers as hard as I did fringe, between the Nightingale, the ‘stute heels, and this (selling out by the second) dress I ordered from Topshop this morning.

Oh and this jacket has kind of a funny story – I TOTALLY owned it when I was in high school, it was one of my treasured Urban Outfitters items (remember that company Bulldog? it’s by them). I, of course, long since lost track of it but I found the same one in a thrift store last month. Reunited!

Jacket, secondhand. Skirt, sweatshirt top, and necklaces, Forever 21. Heels, Bebe.

Vogue Girl Korea!

28/06/2008, General


I’ve been in a sorry state the past few days with an energy-draining cold I’ve been grappling with, so when the postman rang the doorbell yesterday I didn’t manage to answer it in time and had to flag him down barefoot in my sick uniform of yoga pants and cardigan. Must have been quite the sight, but I signed for my package and got really excited when I saw that it was from Korea and in magazine form. I tore it open and the editor that had contacted me for the World Blogger feature had kindly marked the page with a Post-it note. It’s quite surreal seeing photos of myself in print (though I can’t decide how embarrassed I am to be wearing the same shoes in almost every photo..heh..), and I’m very honored to be included in this story – so thank you very much Vogue Girl Korea! I was so happy to see a diverse bunch of familiar blogger faces from all over the world, but I won’t ruin it by posting their pages too. I actually haven’t ever been able to look at an issue of Vogue Girl since I never see it for sale anywhere here in the US, but I must say it’s really fun to flip through even though I can’t read a single bit of it.

Now to work on getting better so I can get back to posting outfits and filling the store with all the crazy cool stuff I’ve found lately. And partake in drunken 4th of July festivities, of course.
