packing leads to playing

23/05/2008, General

Locking myself at home today so I would get all those last minute things done, I of course procrastinated in the form of outfit dress-up while attempting to figure out what to pack for my week-long trip. I forgot how much I hate the packing process and usually just end up shoving a bunch of crap in my bag in those last panicked minutes, but these are the looks/items I think I’m leaning towards. Right now, anyway..I’m sure I’ll mix them all up later.

Les chaussures Chloé

21/05/2008, shopping

As much as I love my massive collection of vintage boots, I’m kind of a heel whore and when this morning I languidly searched for the Chloe motorcycle heels on my favorite comprehensive shopping search engine for no other reason than to shamelessly ogle, I came across these on amazing discount heaven Yoox, which I have coveted madly since first setting sight on them in that Spring ’07 collection. Let’s just say I hope these run true to size, Chloe footwear neophyte that I am….and not to play the devil’s advocate here or anything, but they have a bunch more in different colors and styles…

Pardon the French title, my mom is in Paris this week and I am dyyyyyyyyyying of insane, impossible to contain jealousy. I told her to bring me stuff.

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.

Watch cuff and belt, vintage. Shirt, secondhand. Skirt, Forever21. Bag, Old Navy. Sandals, Urban Outfitters from a couple summers ago.
