ok, i finally got a little excited about the fall season. specifically, these two looks from 3.1 philip lim.
i want a leather jacket. i’ve wanted one for a while, but they’re so expensive, i’ve never seriously considered it. i think i’m starting to consider. here’s my inspiration.
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.
but maybe it’s just because i wish it were SPRING, dudes. seriously. i kept waking up to the rain this morning and i was like, seriously? i’m over it. you can turn off the rain now, ok? this is california. didn’t you get the memo?
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:
anyways, i’ve got some new, more grown up interpretations for the direction of my new haircut.
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?
to feel better, those jeffrey campbells will need to be replaced with 2 pairs of dolce vitas.
all variations on the same shoe. this obsessive habit is getting expensive. (i also just ordered the steve maddens from this post)
this is california, so i’m focusing on cali style, of course. here’s what i’ve come up with so far. we start with the granddaddy of them all, and then elaborate a tad.
the original ray ban wayfarers. in an assortment of new and trendy colors as well, of course:
the oakley frogskins in assorted colors and limited editions (those jerks):
and the sabre poolside, in a variety of colors and lenses as well:
what else have we got? you tell me.
and while i’m at it, where does a girl find the perfect pair of clear plastic frames for her prescription??
while i patiently await the re-opening of my ebay store tonight, i can’t help but do another little post about spring inspirations.i love the destroyed jeans on balmain’s 2009 catwalk. pale and faded or white skinny jeans get a splash of bleach and an appointment with the scissors. i’m already planning a casual sunday outfit paired with simple gladiator sandals.
