Hello hello baby you called I can’t hear a thing

7.30.2010 ~ Friday

Don’t I look like I can’t hear what you’re saying?  I have to say, I’m a bit on the fence about this dress.  I don’t like the pleats in the front, and the fabric is le crappy.  I was sort of feeling Gossip Girl when I got it… yeah.  Not really sure if it works.  It’s probably best with the cardigan?

So… where’s everyone been lately?  It’s lonely on the dashboard…

As I’m often known to do, I picked up this skirt on a whim while at Target.  While I was supposed to be buying things like shampoo and inserts for my poor little feet, of course.  I have no idea what I did on Wednesday.  Other than encourage a young mother that she, too, could wear this skirt, and that I got it at Target.  

Has anyone ever been to Toronto?  I’m going to the film festival in September but I’ll be there all week and definitely won’t be at the film festival the whole time, so I’m on the search for things to do!

P.S. love Madagascar.  I’m ten years old. My life is half over and I don’t even know if I’m black with white stripes or white with black stripes! 

Pattern Mixing, or Polka Dots Again

7.27.2010 ~ Tuesday

My shirt actually has a small polka dot pattern but I forgot to get a closer photo of it, just like I’ve forgotten to get a close-up the past four or five times I’ve worn it!  I’m really not good at those detail shots.  

If you haven’t already heard, Banana Republic is having a really excellent sale, 30% off!  It used to be one of my favorite stores but since they redid their sizing (I don’t care if corporate never said anything, not a single thing fits me any more) I haven’t been able to buy anything there and I don’t even go to the store any more.  My favorite suit is from Banana Republic but it looks like I won’t be able to get any more there :(  I think everything is cut for a curvier figure now, so if that’s you run over to the store/website!

A Little Bit Dark

7.22.2010 ~ Thursday

I doubt anyone would be able to guess it but I actually have a fairly intense goth streak.  Well not as much now, however I used to wear tons of black (still do at times) and most of the year I’m really pale… so it would totally work out for me.  I’m really serious (you probably don’t believe me but I would buy the entire Rick Owens and Yohji Yamamoto collections every season if I could) I used to wear black and ribbons and lace and crazy things all the time, I swear.  I’m actually starting to move toward that again, although I’m favoring black and studs… okay, I know you totally think I’m making it up so I’ll just have to start digging up old photos.  If I could just find senior prom photos… the dress is a gothic minimalist black lace tour de force!

P.S. An incredible sale is going on at my shape right now – extra 50% off all sale items!  

Oh Hai Polka Dots

7.21.2010 ~ Wednesday

I had another one of those can’t-show-the-eyes-or-else-someone-will-mistake-me-for-a-zombie-and-try-to-kill-me-with-an-old-LP days.  Sunglasses are a seriously essential accessory!

7.20.2010 ~ Monday

It’s the time of year that it rains every day and the air is just saturated with water… every movement feels like swimming!  Typically during this weather I wear the lightest fabrics I own with little embellishment and no jewelry.  I can’t imagine trying to wear a jacket or small sweater — it’s just too hot!

Pirates of the Graveyard of the Atlantic

Island Time…

I don’t remember when I took these… maybe it was last Wednesday?  I try to keep things casual at the beach for the most part, but I don’t enjoy lounging around in casual clothes.  Juicy velour is about as lounge-y as I ever get and that’s usual only late after yoga.  There were some serious storms at the beach!  The waters around the area are known as the graveyard of the Atlantic because of the amount of shipwrecks caused by severe storms.  And I had to get my usual photo of the Jolly Roger, so I give you pirates of the graveyard of the Atlantic!

Into the Woods

7.7.2010 ~ Wednesday

It was 100 degrees every day last week, I was practically melting in this light silk blend!  I just wanted to be as cool as possible, so I threw on a belt and easy slip on wedges.  The hood is optional (as seen in Guess Where New York) but I really like it up!  Although I do get the occasional odd look…
