Neglect to satisfaction

I love it when I end up wearing something that ends up being really weather appropriate for the day, it’s hard to tell what would be best with this microclimate business.

I received these Aldo heels at the beginning of the month and was sort of perplexed in regards to them. I loved the idea, and especially how they look from the back, but my warped mind found the heel to not be high enough. I know, it’s sick. I also think this dress is really long, if that gives you any idea what kind of dementia I am now suffering from. So I tossed them in a room downstairs in a rather cruel manner, to decide their fate at a later point, while showering the other heels from the same order with inordinate amounts of attention. However, this morning I decided in a rush while leaving the house (alllmost didn’t even have time to make my peanut butter and honey sandwich, so frenzied was I) that these felt right and I would officially break them in. I mean, it’s probably good to have a couple pairs of heels that aren’t cripplingly high on hand for prolonged wear sessions, right?

I must say I was quite pleased with them and found them extremely comfortable, probably since I am used to that higher inch-age. A happy ending to a trite tale.

Zippers and fringe and straps

Okay after yammering on about denim dresses and realizing that the old photo’s link was broken and the post from last weekend hardly displayed it’s zippered glory, I figured I would post better pictures of it so at least people would understand what kind of weird/sort of ugly but awesome (to me!) it is. Perfect for the random and highly appreciated California heat wave.

And yes, I totally think that this fringe bag and these gladiator wedges go with everything and I know I wear them approx. always. Perhaps I should christen them with the title of basics!

Floral and zombie

12/04/2008, General



Oh my god I look SO TIRED here. Because I was. Getting up at six sucks and makes me go home at 1 in the morning. But one of my best friends EVER from college is visiting who I have employed as temporary photographer. My favorite quality about him is that instead of making his sandwiches in the kitchen, he takes all the ingredients to his bedroom and makes it there. Just in case, you know. Plus, we both like okapis. He is incredibly sweet and almost too easy on the eyes (and can even pull off an argyle vest!) but his heart keeps on getting trampled on cause girls suck, I guess. Maybe he can advertise for a girlfriend (preferably in the LA area) on my blog, unbeknownst to him.

And I know I have been wearing the same things for the past week but I guess that’s what I’ve felt like doing. This is apparently my new favorite dress to wear on Friday nights.
