I’m so sorry that daily outfits are a bit of a struggle for the time being, it doesn’t make it too easy when it’s dark both when I leave for work and when I come back (more due to a harrowing commute involving three different means of transport than fascist hours). This is relatively temporary, and as soon as the boyfriend moves up here (sigh could be a couple months actually), the commute will be no longer and all will be set right. Well, all in terms of properly scheduled outfit documentation. Today I was lucky enough to return to the domicile right before the sun set..these photos should give a glimpse as to how completely Virgin Suicides my parent’s house is, and no there aren’t any cows lurking about, not for at least two miles north. So ha. Or something. Anyway, this is pretty much my version of a lazy comfy outfit, didn’t feel like bothering with heels today and these Minnetonka are pretty much the closest things to Uggs in terms of cushy slipper-like feel and ability to prance nimbly over sidewalk grates and subway stairs. Oddly enough, I’ve gotten a lot of questions from you beloved readers in regards to said moccasin boots (are they worth buying..what does one wear them with), so hopefully this (and the fact that this is my third pair) will shed some light as to how I feel about them.

Dress, Forever21 with vintage slip underneath. Blazer, Ralph Lauren boys. Hat, Zara (one of my beloved Hong Kong purchases!). Tights, H&M. Boots, Minnetonka. Bag, Aldo. Quite the economical outfit, actually.

Sometimes it’s nice to forget about leather and chains and spend the day in the girliest of dresses. Today was perfect, 85 degrees, went thrifting (I’m going to have SO much to stock the store with), ate dark chocolate mint creams, and played in the sun. My mother even indulged me in a mini photo shoot in our backyard. Wow I just made myself sound ten. Happy Easter!

Dress, Jovovich-Hawk for Target. Wedges, Kors Michael Kors. Sunglasses, Urbn. Jewelry, vintage, F21, Old Navy. Jacket…wait for it….wait for it….Union Bay…that’s right.

How…subtle..

23/03/2008, shopping

It seems Bebe has increased their trendwatcher’s budget and they seem to have taken inspiration from numerous unexpected sources this season. I can’t say I’m against them trying to bring a little Givenchy into the average Betty’s life but still. My favorite part is the twists they give each shoe, sometimes radically altering the entire look, most notably the executive decision to make the Givenchy peep-toe lace-ups into a slide. Which can’t have been done because they didn’t think their rhinestone and satin-bedecked customer wasn’t ready for the peep-toe boot since those too have made an appearance. I have to see this one for myself and will be scheduling an unexpected visit to my nearest Bebe sometime this week. If I return with the Schouler k/os in hand you can’t say you didn’t see it coming.

A look inside

I bite my words. While the cover didn’t appeal, the editorial lurking within is enough to merit me staring in awe for the next week or so. So I’m really probably just posting them here so they’re more conveniently accessible for me to do just that. The styling is Alt at her best, and what is most frisson-inducing is the fact that the looks aren’t even that aspirational. I’m pretty sure that’s a pair of American Apparel black bull denim shorts that I will now be dredging out of some dismal drawer to belt and strut about in with motorcycle boots. Well, maybe on that last part, since I don’t quite own the Frye engineer boots of my dreams yet.

And just because it wouldn’t feel right not to:

It just gets better – former D&G model and L’Uomo Vogue editor Giovanna Battaglia in Une Fille Un Style. One of the more risk-taking fashion editors, always to jaw-dropping effect. Definitely buying a hard copy of this one.
