I'm gonna need more hangers.

jacket [le milliardaire] :: bag [reiss] :: shoes [office] :: dress [yessica]

obviously, i spoke too soon about a bag. i always do that and feel foolish for telling the internet about it. it seeems like such a big deal in my head, when these material matters are clearly trivial. they’re just things. but things that i adore! though i might sell the blue dress, i really don’t need another floor length gown.

these are some things i bought during the trip, i don’t feel like photographing everything, i’ll just make a reference when i wear a piece. i didn’t buy a ton of things, which i’m incredibly proud of, but i still made some poor purchasing decisions. like all those macaroons i haven’t eaten. i am so sick of them right now.

to be honest, i havent felt like blogging lately because i’ve been job hunting. my sense of self worth is so entirely dependent on my financial well-being that its difficult for me to focus on much else, i’m afraid. i’m not sure how personal i’m supposed to keep my blog, i try not to be, it should be all about style/fashion/aesthetics, but how can i help it if it’s run by a real person? sometimes i wish i were made of metal. machines have valuable.

let’s play a game! tell me if you can correctly guess…

1) which city each item is from (hint: paris or london)

2) price

ok so first question is a gimme, but the price one! that should be fun.

lately, i’ve been feeling empowered. i think it translates into the need to tuck in my shirt. also, i’ve been experimenting more with a slightly more dandy boyish take on my girlish wear. i’m in love with collared shirts and a nice pair of slim pants.

my mother and i love ferragamo! i have a small collection of purses, but they were all gifts from her. we’re big ebay ppl, i highly recommend it, let me know if you need tips. i also have 3 pairs of  vara pumps at home that never see the school grounds. i’m not one who usually saves pieces for special occasions, but these items, they too precious. what is special to you in this way?

i also recently finally defined my style in one of those three word summaries: playfully put together. ah so satisfying to know oneself! can you define your style in 3 words?
