Flowers for Fall

October 7, 2011

Sorry for going dark here since Monday. I feel like every electronic thing I own has broken or needed repairs lately. Just got a new battery for my Mac today, thankfully it’s still under warranty. I updated Aperture 3 (my image editing software) and it doesn’t work very well any more so my photos have been languishing on the hard drive. Also, if you follow me on Twitter you know that something’s up with my iPhone.

Is Mercury in retrograde right now? For serious, I don’t know what is going on.

Wearing my new-to-me Velvet wrap (swapped with Lydia), Free People dress, MIA ankle boots, Foley + Corinna bag, and ken + dana ring.

Black Velvet

Worn on Sunday 28 Nov 2010

Thoughts:  I have had this blazer for six years.  Actually, maybe seven… I can’t remember well enough.  I retired it for a few years after the blazer craze so I don’t think it’s ever been photographed.  It’s really more of an outwear blazer, it’s bulky and heavy and the velvet is backed with something to give it structure, I think.  

I have also had these boots for six years… I guess I was really feeling some throwback purchases last week?  My feet were really feeling the abuse of the holiday weekend so I decided on flats for the last day to save my poor toes!

Gap blazer, LOFT shirt, BDG (Urban Outfitters) skirt, hot/cold sensing tights from Penneys in Ireland (do these things even work?), J. Crew boots.  

Fun With Antique Filters

4.28.2010 Wednesday

Sadly this yellow dress kept sticking to my tights throughout the day — despite the lining!  I guess this is a no tights kind of dress so luckily it’s becoming warmer.  I feel as if spring was very cold again this year.  I’m not sure if that’s true or not, but I do know that last year spring was legitimately cold.  It snowed the last week in April of 2009.  I’m not sure that I’ll find spring warm again until… maybe sometime in the next few years?  After spending spring in Japan I feel as if the temperatures should go up into the 60s during March… and that just doesn’t happen this far north! 

According to the second photo it’s currently Halloween.  I wonder how long that pumpkin has been there.  Since Halloween?  Maybe even Halloween 2008! 

Grey leopard print cardigan (Old Navy), yellow dress (Velvet), gold belt (Shimamura (Japan)), grey tights (HUE), navy and white shoes (Lela Rose for Payless).
