geek chic

say what you will, but i will never get over nerdy glasses. i’ve been wearing them since i was 15 and i will probably never stop. so that’s my disclaimer, because this post is about the glasses i’m ordering tomorrow.

behold, the 3.1 phillip lim glasses:

and for the sake of context, here’s what they look like on the runway, but i promise they will look like ten times cooler on me. hehe.

so. after i get these babies in the mail and get the prescription filled with my terrible astigmatism coke bottle lenses, i will no doubt already be thinking about yet another sweet pair. i’m quite interested in the ever classic moscot lemtosh frame:

and of course, the more recognizable and even more classic optical ray ban wayfarer. a standby. perhaps these will be my backup glasses.

now can you really call me shallow for wanting an incredible pair of glasses? i mean, they are kind of essential if i want to seeeeeee for chrissake.

ok, and done.

peach tree

yet another vintage embroidered mexican dress. i have so many that i can no longer decide which one is my favorite. oh geez.

i’m pretty sure i’ll be taking photos of new ebay stuffs tomorrow, which is a very good idea because i’ve been spening like mad and i am but a poor college student, for reals!!! but i have to get up and get moving and do washing and ironing and fixing-up and getting ready first. ok, i’m almost up.

in other news, i am suddenly hankering for another hair cut. why is my favoritest stylist in the world so expensive? 70 dollars for a cut and that does not include tip! i will patiently wait and try to make a few bucks on ebay before i get crazy. anyways, i’ve got rent to think of. and i desperately need new glasses. oh expensive life!

luella inspiration

oh, i figured i should mention where i got the idea for the bow hats!!!! oh trust me, i am getting more off ebay as we speak. so bad.

hat party

ok, so i’ve recently become obsessed with this whole giant bow/hat thing a la luella this spring. i got a copy of the latest lula mag the other day and i threw myself on the floor in a fit of joy and inspiration because they featured a lot of what i’m in love with these days. like charles anastase and isabel marant and luella! and glasses! oh glasses, how i want you! i wish i was not so broke.

cheap monday tight jean in black.

not fashioney

ok. so i haven’t figured out how to be fabulous while doing all things. for example, i wear a pair of plaid pajama pants that are too big for me when i go to bed. and when i’m climbing up big rocks in joshua tree while on vacation, i wear a t-shirt and jeans. so kill me.

anyway, spring break 2009. woooot. here are some photos. i love them.

vintage california bud light muscle tee.
cheap monday tight jean in black.
saltwater sandals brown sandals.
and anyway, i feel that this still qualifies. i’ve got a majestic vintage california shirt complete with a horse running on the beach and a bud light advertisement. and saltwater sandals rule. so there. and oh there are many more!

chictopia

oh i am giving myself away, but i was too proud when i discovered that my photo was placed on the homepage of chictopia. i feel special today.


the last photo that was up there had stayed in that place for months! i’m a poster girl for a fashion networking site!

the tattoo side

i am thinking about tattoooooos. i want another. but what? hmmmm.

j. crew sun dress in white.
american apparel sash in mauve.
saltwater sandals in brown.

additionally, i am now really into mint juleps. kentucky derby ready, dude. can you just order one up at any old bar? and if you do, will it be as good as the ones i’ve been making today??? so many hard-hitting questions….

hair cut!

relieved to have gotten a new haircut. i feel like a weight has been lifted from my shoulders. har. then, when i got home and did my makeup, i realized that i was channeling “my life to live.” that is not a bad thing, though i’m not trying to say i look as effing awesome as anna karina. anyway, then i just had to change my photobooth picture to black and white. it was only appropriate. voila!


in other news: too much homework equals no time for ebay. i’m so good at math, see? so sorry for that. but for serious, i should put up a teaser because i have some pretttty amazing stuff waiting to go up for auction.

UPDATE: oh oh! and this is how it looks when it’s all messed up! i am very pleased that i found a new place to get my hairs cut. yayay!


yeah, it’s cheezy. i couldn’t help myself. i was twirling around and shaking my hairs because i am pleased.
