i like that it's wrong

not posting much right now bc i'm in the middle of a move (i see a flood of interior design posts in the future) but i wanted to share my little sister's new music video. pretty badass...like a stepford wife gone wrong. really wrong.

my pick

i just can't shake this menswear-obsession- sam jackson gets my vote for best dressed at the oscars. everyone else underwhelmed me this year.

the lost ripper

 
this photo serves as a cautionary tale. if you watch a couple hours of full house and then go to the thrift store, you will end up looking like jesse katsopolis when you go out that night.

terraniums

normally i don't like plants indoors but maybe these are funky enough to change my mind, even though they would likely end up as a new house for my hamster.

i wear your granddad's clothes

i'm wearing someone's grandma's clothes here, technically. i found an old casino club card in the pocket of this jacket. like your style, edith james.

the sweater and boots are also from goodwill.

daniela braga

have seen her on the runways often lately and think she is stunning. how does that configuration of features even happen in nature. seriously.

real cheap thrills


went poking around some thrift shops last week and finally found an acceptable vintage leopard coat (for $8 so that's much more than acceptable, actually). also discovered this oversized leather cardigan for 99 cents (!). it has a few small holes, but nothing i can't get my seamstress (aka mom) to fix.

it's totally normal

i don't think i've would've taken a picture of this outfit, but i REALLY liked that blue lamp post. glad that i jumped on the tiny strap sandals bandwagon as my legs look less stumpy, less often, and that's generally good. learning a lot from having my boyfriend awkwardly watch me awkwardly pose in awkward public places while people look at us awkwardly.

loafer list









 







i'm in a little bit of a menswear/tomboy phase right now (meaning that i've actually been buying clothes from the men's department) i'm not sure if it's some overall fashion trend influencing me or i have just let my inner desire for comfort take over, but i have naturally been led to the point of menswear-inspired loafer lust. i recently purchased the bdg pair pictured above and am anxiously awaiting them in the mail. i am also currently debating about whether to buy a men's striped pajama set for myself..that's how far i've gone down on this whole men's clothing road thing.

basic b*tch

looking through some recent outfit posts, i can't decide if i'm being boring or just consistent.

there's a reason for it

sometimes i think that collectively as bloggers we post about kate moss too much. like, can she still really be that inspiring after years and years of looking at photos of her? well yah, she can. i'd somehow never come across this image of her and mario sorrenti in 1993 until yesterday (though you can apparently buy posters of it?) and i am so in love with this look, right down to her sambas.
kate love forever.

pirate pants


finally felt like i recovered from the holiday hangover just yesterday and ready to post again. i wore this to nerd out with pat at the symphony's showing of pirates of the caribbean. it makes me feel inspired to do some serious second hand shopping actually since i got that top at at a vintage store and the pants at a thrift store. i've been neglecting my mecca, the salvation army lately...very stupid.
