Hot Topic is henceforth my favorite place to buy jeans. Such a perfect fit, and $40 a pop? Mmmmmmk. And I think I’m entranced by that mutant silver zipper.
The only problem being that after I placed my order online, I had to call and verify my identity before they would ship it. Apparently they have a lot of kids going to town with their parent’s credit cards? So funny. But seriously, no one should have to go without Twilight merchandise and fluffy black petticoats, right?
I am exhausted after a crazy day with Kristin and Colin working on something that we’re all SO EXCITED about. Sleep has never sounded better.
Death stare II. I could not possibly be more excited about these Topshop pants..but after buying American Apparel’s lame leggings, Kate Moss’ wet look skinnies, and now these suckers, I think I’m going to cut myself off from the shiny stuff. I’m also going to start repenting for long neglecting these boots, which were one of the first pairs of expensive-ish boots that I bought as a blogger..previously I had pretty much kept to MJ too actually. I’ve only been turned astray due to a depressing lack of soaring heights and platforms in his recent collections. I promise I still love you Marc! Just give us the good stuff. I’ll have to see if the cross-strap wedges I used to be so obsessed with are at my parent’s house when Colin and I are in San Francisco in a few weeks. And I’m totally out of touch with everything Bay Area so if you have any New Year’s Eve suggestions in the city, let me know!

Man that’s quite the camera stare-down..I don’t think I was that angry. Maybe just sick of lurking in a tunnel with oddly tan-enhancing lighting. I think everything I’m wearing here is wardrobe favorite status..after some scattered online purchases I made today hopefully the pool will be expanding. I’m not sure why it is that I shop so much less at stores these days, but it’s gotten to the point where the UPS guy expressed shock today when delivering something for Colin instead of for me..after which he assured me that I still “have him beat by far”.
What I’ve learned:

Colin and I have been in Julian for the past couple days – he used to come here with his family to camp and wanted to show me the closest thing to a quaint countryside that we’ve got. It’s absolutely beautiful – a lot of things like golden light passing through leaves, vintage-y candy stores, what is apparently the best apple pie around, and even a post office that looks like a schoolhouse from the 1800s. I never really think to myself that I want to get away from the beach but it’s definitely a fun change. So far we’ve picked up chocolate covered espresso beans, marinated mushrooms, pistachios, blackberry honey sticks, and apple cider. I’m serious.
I randomly packed this sweater I got a couple years ago, which I’m pretty sure I used to wear as a dress (SO short??) – as you can see, the cowled section has a tendency to change its mind about how it lies every three seconds. Which is probably why I don’t wear it more often…I’m not into clothing that has to be constantly adjusted. Oh well. At least I’m saluting December with my festively red shorts.

Wow it was actually sort of cold yesterday. I’ve never really found meshy tights like these to be warm whatsoever and I’m actually pretty sure they’re irrelevant to one’s overall body temperature. Iced vanilla soy latte…maybe not.
But more importantly, I’ve been hanging on to this PVC paneled sweater for a while now waiting for knits to feel more appropriate. Though Colin swears I stole it from Michael Jackson, I’m into it’s futuristic vibe and off center elbow patches, as hard as it is not to absentmindedly touch the shiny stuff from time to time. Nothing like a questionable sweater to mix up one’s winter wardrobe.
