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.

lark & wolff by steven alan navy sailor tunic.
cheap monday tight jean in black.
star ling black wedge sandals.

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.

spring inspiration

gah! i have suddenly discovered a new love. go to style.com and use their full screen viewer for a better look-see.

charles anastase s/s 09!


clicky clicky. i am going out today to buy a straw hat. for serious.

my terrible interviewing skillzzzzzz

ok, so this was a first attempt at vlogging, if you will. apparently, you’re supposed to think up the questions before you begin. anyhow, this is me interviewing mr. b. garbee of the brendan garbee blog, asking him about his upcoming book, philip orlane. we’ll get it right next time, but for now, this is all you get!

oh crap, i hope i don’t always act quite this dumb!!!! oh, and of course, visit the brendan garbee blog! it rules so hard!!!

leather jacket, please.

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 just really love this look in general. it was the only thing that stood out for me in karen walker’s collection. i must have that jacket. i’ll take the whole outfit, actually.

i’m gonna say i think i’m like the only person who didn’t like erin featherston. it was a super fun collection in contrast to everything else that’s shown so far, but i couldn’t get over those silly hats! i love a flouncy mini skirt and all, but i guess i’m just no fun. but i did like that jacket…

and i’m thinkin that this leather vest from elise overland is pretty badass. i’m keeping my eyes open at the thrift stores for something i can alter like this, and then probably never wear.
