Pink! For Valentine’s Day, you know. If only I were slithering about on a beach looking like a modern day Rainbow Brite.

The ol’ Topshop wishlist

14/02/2008, inspiration, shopping

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

I have a semi-bitter love/hate relationship with Topshop’s website…so many necessary items, but everything is always sold out when I’m ready to click through an order. I recognize that there are worse problems to be had, but still. I’m feeling relatively anguished over the fact that I apparently missed my chance to order the Maggie button-down skirt. How can such a simple item elude me so! And yes I tried on the Urban Outfitters version, and the extra small sat low on my hips, which it was probably supposed to, but methinks the entirety of the allure of this item is based on the fact that it be high waisted.

And the shoes! So many amazing(-ly weird) boots to be had! Just not sure if they’re worth like over $200. But talk about taking hybrid shoes to the level after the next. Quite sassy. Oh, and that’s the back of the dress (top right)…it was more interesting than the front.

Lastly, hmm it seems I am not the only awkwardly pigeon toed poser. I seriously don’t know why I do this, to the surprisingly large amount of people that have inquired. I mean I don’t walk like that or anything but I think it helps me to stabilize when standing still for a photo? Especially in heels? Maybe? At this point it’s so ingrained that it’s almost difficult not to. I tried.

Tara Subkoff for Bebe

When I first heard tell of Tara for Bebe, I squealed inwardly with excitement, images of her relatively fabulous/quirky personal style, her much-coveted-by-me Easy Spirit line (I never mustered up the cash for a pair of my own), and her adorable character in The Last Days of Disco flitting through my mind gleefully. And then the photos surfaced…overly Valentine’s-inspired (this is relevant for approximately one week of the year) and cheesy. I can barely recognize Tara through the wrappy ruffles and am pretty sure that lookalikes of these items could be find at any cheaper mall store. I suppose I expected more of someone with such close ties to Sevigny. The stripey top/skirt ensemble is cute but I’m pretty sure that everyone already has some version of these items in their wardrobes. Props for the monochromatic red outfit though, pretty intrepid for a company as mass as Bebe.

However, a couple clicks through their shoe section had me lusting after these two-tone sandals. Bebe can always be relied upon for having a couple lustworthy, almost misogynistically vertiginous heels. These would be perfect for achieving the Teen Vogue-inspired ankle sock/strappy sandal look noted previously.

Haha how cheesy was that title. Anyway, with fresh spring merchandise hitting stores as we speak, I’m getting more excited about what exactly I’m going to be putting on my must-have list. Here are some of my favorite (pre-blog) pictures of me from last summer I thought I’d share, photography courtesy of the boyfriend except the last. Excuse the trashiness of that shot, it was his birthday and he miraculously didn’t end up contracting footworms.

Waaaaaaaaaaaaaay back. My poor mother looks so stressed out.
