I love these jeans so much. I wish all of my jeans had this cut; tightish at the thighs but loose below the knees and just barely bunched at the ankles. Mmmmmm.

This past Wed, Gibson Girl declared it to be Statement Necklace Day, in honor of the latest trend, which is a timeless favorite of mine. I never got to see the girls though, we have mixed up schedules. Boo!

I chose my ping pong ball necklace, which Killerspin did see and got a kick out of. This is another one of my DIY necklaces, which was actually a modifed Teen Vogue Idea (not in their DIY section though), that I made back in high school. I feel a little like Wilma Flintstones with it on.

Stephen-san said I look like a shaman from WOW. LOL, not a bad description. Its a very baubly necklace for sure and super fun to wear. Maybe I’ll make/paint another one in the name of Betty.

I take these sneakers for granted too much. I got them in Belgium awhile ago and I should treat them more like the treasure find they are.

Also, I apologize for the lack of posts lately. Hurricane Ike hit and all and I didn’t really have as much downtown to seriously consider outfits and I just feel too tired all over lately. I hope I’m not getting sick. Thanks for all your comments, they make me very happy that people care about my efforts. I’ll keep trying!

This was a post I meant to make 2 weeks ago, sorry about that! Yes, I did make the skirt myself, its among on the first pieces of clothing I’ve made for myself, though I can’t say I’ve made many. Actually, it was supposed to have a top and be my prom dress junior year in high school, but I found a different dress. So technically this is unfinished. Regardless, it makes me feel a bit like a cupcake princess when I wear it.

I think I have a thing for the Black-Navy-Brown palette now. I thought about wearing this last week, but decided it was too soon to bust out the same color scheme again. I felt very business-y/polished for a Monday. Monday outfits tend to be that way since I have the whole weekend to relax and ponder.

I forgot where I got these. When I remember, I’ll let you know. This was the closest zoomed picture I could get without sacrificing focus, since my camera is not that fancy.

What is the term for this kind of fringe? It’s on golf shoes too, besides loafers, I think it starts with a “K ” or a “T.” Anyway, I can’t remember so if you do, please let me know.

When I saw these in Vogue’s Sept 2008 issue, I thought “GASP!!!! I NEED THEM!”

Do I really have to explain why? I mean…really? Nine West is one of my favorite brands for affordable but fashion forward shoes and they seal the deal with coming up with THESE: The perfect height (mid calf), the perfect neutral shade that isn’t black, the perfect/FANTASTIC classy bondage straps = the perfect pair of boots that I have been looking for all my style inclined life. They don’t come out until 9/15 and also $250, but that is a perk of being Vogue and I think if I’ve waited this long for these, I can wait a little longer. Though I don’t feel like you need anymore convincing, here are more tantalizing photos, in case you do.

God, I want them so badly it hurts.

I realized that I need more than 15 minutes to get ready if I’m going to pick an outfit on the fly. Sometimes they come to me, sometimes they need a bit of thought. This is a rush job, so its more hipster and safe, which is why I don’t like it as much. It is really hard though, because I have a bunch of stuff going on, but I’m going to try SUPER hard tomorrow. I’d hate to disappoint. I am smiling though, because of my earring.

I make a lot of my own earrings out of little toys and things around my house a long time ago, so it’s been a trademark of my look in general. I really adore toys or child’s play motifs as jewelry because it’s so innocent, eye catching, and fun. It’s a problem though, because I sometimes forget that I’ll have to wear things more than once to justify buying them, so it’s tough to weed out the impulse buys from the lasting loves.
