I'm gonna need more hangers.

dress [prototype DIY] :: shoes [jil sander] :: bag [pandorama]

today i went grocery shopping. yup.

i’m a sucker for office girl shoes, they make everything else seem so avant garde by visual comparison. but i’m not sure about these, got them off ebay for pennies and was stoked, but they weren’t the pill white i was imagining them to be. i felt deflated. the fit is a bit narrow too. i might have to resell them. or have them dyed white. or do it myself. bah.

a DIY post for the dress is coming up. i made it recently but didnt know how to photog it. sometimes versatility stalls you. i love having it, but it makes me so indecisive.

dress [dkny] :: shoes [jil sander] :: bag [reiss]

i won’t lie, it’s hard to be fashion-y in this heat. it was 106 the other day in houston. wah. and yes it was too hot for the socks but i’m a really practical person. bahhaha.

i’ve been dressing punk-easy and working on a lot of DIYs to fill up time while i await job possibilities. you would think the first outfit is nondescript, but going grocery shopping, not so incognito. oh the burbs.

wore the second look to go out with some friends downtown. i won’t lie, i really enjoy feeling sexy when i step out, possibly because i dont really think my body is made for such a word, so i like to approach the term more these days in a classy and adult, and sometimes conceptual fashion. still trying to work out what that means in relation to my current wardrobe, but generally, it comes with a sense of subtlety. i know the high slit probably doesn’t scream subtle, but  its trickier to pull off  or notice at a first glance than a typical bodycon piece. and on the form of a shapeless tank dress, therein lies the subtlety and i like when my clothes make other people do a double-take. it makes sense in my head. on another note, being stuck at home, my new and nice things–shoes, bag–are desperate for wear air and i am so so desperate for girl talk.
