boy oh boy, i feel special today.
:) :) :)
ok, to explain, chictopia is a style networking site. they award the title of “style icon” to people with good style. 3 are voted in by users and 3 are editorially picked. i feel so happy because i was chosen this month! so, it’s very exciting for me, and i get this little banner to show off! hehe. ;)
so there was this crazy heat wave like a week ago and i freaked out. it was hot. i was miserable. i was confused. so i did what anyone would do, and i bought a shit ton of dresses. now it’s not so hot, but i still wanna wear my cool new stuffs. i think i’m making that sad face because i’m a tad too cold. silly me.

at a certain point this spring, i thought i had seen too many florals and i decided i would clean my palette and avoid them. but i was wrong. who can resist a floral pattern, really?
i’m sure you all know about my chloe obsession. this outfit was heavily inspired by a certain see by chloe line… except it’s like a teeny tiny fraction of the price.

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.
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!

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.

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.

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!
