So yes I am wearing the same shirt as I did yesterday. Actually, I slept in it so have been wearing it for over 24 hours! Such is the appeal of the boyfriend shirt. Or pretend boyfriend shirt. I am thinking I should clarify in response to recent comments that this is not the “OOH look at my new ____ blog” or the avant garde reference guide (don’t get me wrong I love those blogs too but that’s just not who I am), but instead one where vintage is modernized, the same items are worn over and over again in different ways, and I pose at random in my backyard. And who knows, I might be saving up for the bag purchase of a lifetime. Ooh and Caldwell is coming to town on Friday! Like Santa! Which always means more exciting outfits, one of which will probably be one of the sweetest vintage cutout dresses ever. Think mock neck, full skirt, skintight bodice…mmmm…

Furthermore, today I received the MOST INSANE EMAIL EVER, which if it’s not a crazy joke, might be the coolest thing to ever happen to me. STOKED.
Shirt, Forever21. Lamé bra, American Apparel. Skirt, made by the darling Camille. Bag and sunglasses, vintage. Heels, Aldo.
Side note: nail polish ID to those who asked, it’s OPI’s Chihuahua Bites but I diluted it with some sheer pink stuff a little bit. I know, I’m such a mad scientist.
Rarely do I like an outfit as much with Chucks as I do with staggering chunky heels but here I think either way makes sense…and yeah I’m totally re-obsessed with these heels. Random note: reversible vest!
I sort of hate red lipstick (on me!) but this is the only reddish lip color I like, L’oreal’s Colour Juice Stick in Cherry Freeze. It’s more than a stain but less than a lipstick, which makes me not so fearful of it. Plus it’s as moisturizing as Lipsmackers and almost as saccharine so my inner 12 year old is appeased.
T, Fruit of the Loom. Vest and Levi’s shorts, vintage. Heels, Aldo.
PS adding a few pairs of Levi’s shorts like this to the store over the next week.
PPS OMG SERENA!
YAY my craving for tacky light denim has been fulfilled. I feel so much better now. Today was awesome in 9000 different ways. It’s the first official day that I’m working remotely, which means dressing as randomly as I feel like. I might be wearing denim shorts an unusual amount from now on, largely because I think the hardest thing about going to an office every day was not being able to don them. Just warning you.
I know that most, if not all of you, think that I go and get Mystic Tanned bi-daily or something, but I swear to you, I went to a tanning salon once in my life many years ago and am never going back, because it was scary, and it gave me weird splotchy skin that lasted a month. Sick. I actually wear SPF 45 every day, but something about my Japanese/whiteness makes me conducive to darkening as soon as the temperature goes above 70 degrees. I get tan lines from sitting outside and eating lunch for 20 minutes. It’s actually very inexplicable, since both of my parents are pretty pale people, buttt my brother’s the same way. Maybe we are secretly not their offspring! Who knows.
Tshirt and sunglasses, Urbn. Shorts and boots, vintage. Jewelry, vintage/Forever 21.
There’s something about French Vogue editorials that makes them not seem dated when you look at them a significant amount of time later. In this case, exactly a year. I think it’s because they don’t replicate entire runway looks. The brilliance of Daria, Terry Richardson, and Emmanuelle Alt working together is hot sex. Knowing that Daria’s such a tomboy makes it that much better.
