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!

dandyhorse

I do my fair share of internet roving and thought that I had peered at about every Paris fashion street style documentation that there was to be had, so when I stumbled across Dandyhorse I was rather delighted at being able to ogle more angles and immaculately disheveled looks. Though it’s kind of making me sick to look at all these photos of tights and jeans when it’s 90 degrees out, these are too good to not share. Now if only the site was updated more often…

Julia von Boehm is an eternal favorite..what a fabulous way to wear all black. Love how comfortable she looks in this gear.

This is sort of a fun interpretation of the motorcycle jacket/skinny jean/fierce heel combination which is pretty much the 07/08 uniform.

Gray is one of the few (only?) colors that I feel right mixing tones in. Those pants could have been so bad but they’re..not.

I think those were the ones I wanted. Hmph.

This is so Diane Kruger’s doing. At my high school there was this guy that everyone called Pacey because they thought he looked like this character. It was pretty annoying.

Julia Restoin-Roitfeld is one of those people where I just want ALL THEIR SHOES. I bet she’s a 7.5 too….
