Wore this out to a casual sushi dinner last night – one qualm I have about wearing denim jackets is how completely not warm they are. There is no insulation going on there! Maybe I need to get a flannel lined one from LL Bean or something. Sexy.

tears for ears

This skirt makes me so happy I want to die. Well it’s actually more of a loincloth than a skirt since it’s pretty much a triangle with snaps and the rest of it is just fringe, sweet fringe. Hopefully I’m not becoming so bored with readily available merchandise that I must reference the prehistoric. Anyway, I took cover underneath with a black mini because I am not a stripper.

But that is not the focus here. I want to discuss earrings. Somewhere along the way it seems they became irrelevant, or perhaps it’s just me? Aside from my peacock feather ordeals, I never even think to put them on anymore. Perhaps we are living in a time of the necklace and bangle. Not wanting to exclude entire categories from my accessorization practices, I wore this piece today, which I picked up at a thrift store years ago in a set of two. It requires no piercing, instead relying upon the shape of the ear to stay put. Belgian model and Jefferson Hack dater Anouck Lepere came out with a line of similar jewelry made of delicate chains that I remember wanting every single piece from, but for some inexplicable reason she discontinued it. A Google search only yielded the below image (of Anouck herself), from The Fashion Spot of course, but it is enough to demonstrate how beautifully ethereal her designs were. If I had known, I would have gladly sacrificed buying a couple poli sci textbooks in college for at least a few pieces..though I know I’m lucky to have found these similar-ish gold ones. Man I hate it when good things stop existing.

I’ve had a lot of requests lately for a jewelry post (which I will definitely do soon), so here is a closeup of one of my favorite vintage pieces. Most of the jewelry I wear is vintage, and the remainder is either from Forever 21 or things I pick up when I travel. My mom brought me back some cute silver bracelets from Paris so those have been integrated as well. I love how battered this particular cuff is..normally I hate wearing watches, somehow they feel suffocating to me, most likely because I am crazy. But the watch face here is so small that it doesn’t bother me..I know zilch about watches but the brand is “Sheffield” and it’s made in Switzerland so it can’t be too bad..I keep on meaning to take it to a watch place to see if it can be made functional, but I’ve never gotten around to doing this in the two years that I’ve owned it. Man I’m lame. Luckily it’s so un-watch-like that no one ever asks me for the time since it’s set on a permanent nine o’clock…could be pretty awkward explaining to strangers that I’m wearing a defunct timepiece.

And after all that whining about my Kain order, it shipped approximately a day afterwards. Suspicious. Luckily this thing was worth the wait, I’m rather obsessed. Whatever modal is, it’s so soft and thin it barely exists. I’m contemplating ordering one in black too. I also got a few Alternative Apparel burnout tops and have been wearing them in a bunch of auction photos, I highly recommend them to everyone that was asking about my Urbn white T in this post.

Pocket tank, Kain. Skirt, secondhand (bid on the same style in gray here). Shoes, vintage. Bag, Lucky Brand.
