Rogan jeans

20/05/2008, shopping

I made sure to check out the Rogan line at Target this weekend..but..already highly combed over. I know, what?! Must have been released days earlier judging from the lack of selection/sizes. I did get to check this thing out..just as crazy as it looks online. Anyway, I moped on over to the dressing rooms with a couple measly items, including these jeans just for the heck of it. I’ve never liked any of the other GO International collaboration’s denim but they seemed at least mildly promising on the rack. They, surprisingly, fit amazingly well, hugging the ankles tightly and practically screaming that they wanted to be friends with my Marc Jacobs boots. Or perhaps not so surprising, isn’t denim what Rogan mainly does in the first place? Oh yeah.

I didn’t really wear this since it was blazingly hot, so I just put together a simple look to photograph. Just saying.

Note: this is really hard to photograph and almost just as hard to see in real life too, but they have this weird/kinda cool/kinda don’t know what to think about it leopard patterning on the sides. I like how invisible this is, and I suppose it doesn’t really detract. Just…random.

denim again and again

Mmmm…medium wash denim..I guess I’m pretty into it right now. I was feeling an urge to wear this geeky dad shirt today, along with this Moroccan belt that overstayed it’s welcome back in ’04. I’d found it in my closet in a bag along with 15 other belts I forgot I had and wondered if it could be made new again. Which, of course, meant that floaty dresses and skinny jeans were out of the question. Luckily, bandage skirts seem to solve most of my fashion problems these days.

Oh and I know I have some terrifying roots going on..I’m trying to figure out what to do about it/not really caring. Plus, my brother informed me that he “always thought roots looked kind of cool”. Yeah.

tales of travel

With the surge of bohemian dresses in the store, I decided to get it on the floaty paisley action. This dress is so summer perfect it’s almost sickening. The semisheer material definitely requires doubling up with an (also vintage) slip, and I gave it that extra roundhouse kick into modernity with my shiniest stud-heavy heels. How is it that electric blue sort of goes with everything lately?

I know I made annoyingly vague allusions to exciting news a couple weeks ago, and well now I am going to annoyingly just say I’m flying down to LA after Memorial Day in relation to said news, which I’m SO EXCITED about. I’m going to be staying with one of my best friends from college and do LA things like…well I’m sure we’ll figure it out. Yay for spontaneously arranged travel!

Back to basics

Ahh everyone’s favorite top…simple but brilliant. And perfect for constructing a look when it’s @#$*&)@#* too hot to think. I love that it can dress down mostly anything (in this case monumental mirrored heels), and it’s a favorite with my first love, denim shorts. This is definitely an outfit that’s so simple it can be tinkered with in numerous ways and still be quite fun…Chucks, oversized vintage clutch, woven wedges, tights, studded anything, annoying hat, duh white tshirt, etc. I love basics.

And, my friends, it is a fateful day for me, I have scored a place on the homepage of The Fashion Spot. I’m more than a little stunned to see myself in the cover story flash animation alongside such internet giants as Susie Bubble. I’ve been lurking and posting there since..2004 or some crazy year, and sort of feel life would not be worth living without it. My frequent forum action has even caused fights with my boyfriend. Kind of sick. Not sure if I mean that in the good way or the bad way. So anyway, THANK YOU TFS!

Top and skirt, American Apparel. Bag, Lucky. Heels, Nine West. Necklace/headband, Banana Republic.
