back to basics

i haven’t been too impressed with much of what’s come out for fall yet, but i should probably hold out because there’s still a lot to come. anyway, i’m feeling the tiny knitwear collection put out by lutz & patmos. i don’t know anything about them, but i’m really appreciating their stuffs. i’m thinking of knitting together some pieces for myself in the same fashion.

i know it’s nothing new, but i like the simplicity and i like the shapes. and i’ve just always had a thing for cashmere. i love it. this is definitely the direction i’ll be going in this fall and next. i need some warmth, man.





let’s talk about hair.

yah, this blog is soooooo deep. anyway.

i am going to make an appointment for a haircut. i’m over having this long hair because it just doesn’t work for me on so many levels. it’s been fun spending like 3 years letting my hair get long just to see what it would look like, but it’s time to get back to my roots. heh.

before i let my hair grow i’m pretty sure the timeline went something like this: i let my then-boyfriend buzz my hair with a clipper, then i bleached the shit out of it, then i let it grow into a messy mop. then i got drunk and let a friend cut a giant chunk out of the back, which eventually grew into something like a mullet. it was pretty fun. right after bleaching it out, i looked something like this:


i obviously thought i was a badass. and shit, now that i think of it, if i had my wits about me, i could’ve let it grow into the full gloriousness of something like this:


but alas, i did not…

anyways, i’ve got some new, more grown up interpretations for the direction of my new haircut.





i don’t intend to dye my hair this time, but this is the basic idea. i like the androgyny of it and i think it’s a tad more fashion forward and classy than my previous choice.

i figure it would be way too dramatic to just chop it all off, so i’m probably going to do this in 3 phases. cut some heavy bangs first, then cut a bob, then chop it all off.

so what do we think?

bikes and fashion

i spent a considerable amount of time this evening trying to find the perfect bike. after careful consideration, this pashley is looking like a strong contender. how adorable would i look riding around town on this? and yeah, it’s got a sturmey archer 3 speed internal hub. oh, but, i’d probably replace that basket with some sort of brooks leather case/bag. now the only issue is: where does a girl find one of these in the usa? any ideas?
