Cute was what I aimed for today (no I don’t listen to the band but I find their name adorable). I haven’t been feeling very styled lately (understatement, I feel like a slothy hobo), so I decided to throw myself back into the game today. It’s easier on MWF because I have morning classes, whereas I have afternoon ones on TR.

I feel like I just popped out of Urban Outfitters, but I’ve gotten a variety of other comments, the most popular being “Whoa! You have a purse around your neck!” The most unique, from El Rebelde, being “You look like Kiki from Kiki’s Delivery Service!”

Though it doesn’t really look like it, for some reason, I totally get where he’s coming from. Also, Arindam gave me a free boba tea on the premise of me being cute. So I’d say today’s outfit was a success, even without the tea.

As for the purse, it was a 17th birthday present from my mommy to me. I love love love it, but it’s so useless. Maybe that’s why I do. It can’t hold a cell phone or even a credit card and it’s chain is heavier than the purse itself. But I was going through a Ferragamo craze that year on eBay (I got 3 pairs of Vara pump) and this was just one of the best presents of that time. A lot of the older luxury brands like Hermes, Bruno Magli, Ferragamo included are some of her favorite brands and she’s passed it down onto me. When I grow up and get an amazing job, I would love to be able to buy her a Kelly Bag. Or anything that she wants really. But, I digress.

At the time, it didn’t occur to me to wear it as a necklace; this was a recent development. I just slung it futilely around like a real purse. Well it has a new ornamental function now. This is stupid, but I’m much better thinking on my feet when I’m rested. Yes yes, I knoooow, but it was such a big difference this morning that I felt I had to say it.
