I'm gonna need more hangers.

socks [now fashion, gunsan] :: shoes [culture call]

i have simple and complicated goals, one of them is to have a polka dotted version of everything i already have. i got this chambray shirt on a whim (i’m so French in this war of wills) and have been wearing it everyday last week when i get home. i love the newness of clothes and i can wear them for days post purchase to indulge in it for as long as possible. don’t worry, it’s in the wash now.

i got those silver shoes like i said i would. also finally shot the lookbook i’ve been meaning to post. yay getting things (done)!

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.

i love looking at photos and realizing i already have all the components and i am one step away from execution. to be honest though, while i love garters + socks (over tights = brilliant!), it might still be too trashy for me. we’ll see. tomorrow maybe.
