I'm gonna need more hangers.

I finally have a faux leather moto jacket. It found me actually. I was at F21 downtown with Sapo-chan last Friday and just when I thought I’d only be walking away with accessories…it winked at me from atop it’s hanger. I couldn’t believe my luck. You did good Forever 21, you did good.

Saturday was an epic thrifting morning with Gibson girl, totally worth the drive to the less frequented Value Village. I came away with so many beautiful fun things, most sprinkled with sparkling things, like the top above. I actually wore this outfit during the day on Saturday, sequins shine like non other in the daylight. I don’t use this word very often because I feel I often don’t qualify (one must be somewhat refined), but I felt seriously glamourous in this top. As the hot pink days of yester-semester fade into fall, a new era has dawned on my closet-dom: the Gilted age. Despite things going awry, everything’s still shiny.

I should really photograph things more religiously. Last weeks outfits totally went mortalized. This week is getting like that too. I’m just really shy about other ppl watching me do my thing. I’m fine strutting around, but when I’m freezing, its like I’m mega self concious. Granted, I’m sure it’s safe for ppl to assume that I’m a rather narcississtic creature. See I am, but I feel like that is a product of my high self esteem. However, if ppl see me photographing myself, they might get the wrong idea. I’d want to tell them that it’s for my style blog and it’s like people who video tape themselves dancing: it’s documenting my progress and striving for better.

Monday was a good day. A good day for THRIFTING. So I took my mother to her ballet class downtown and stopped by Buffalo Exchange (dubbed B|X) to pass the time. Little did I know I would be walking away with these puppies:

Do you know how LONG I’ve been wanting sneakers dipped in space silver? In short, long enough. They were $32 and NEVER BEFORE WORN so that kinda helped.

B|X is notoriously sort of overpriced for resale stuff. But I ended up finding some pretty worthy things this time. I came away with 5 articles total, the B&W Calvin Klein shirt you saw yesterday, plus the following. Enjoy my little lookbook spread!

Tank, American Eagle // Dress, Viola // Vest [worn also as dress], Lucca // Skirt [also worn as scarf], no label // Skirt [also worn as poncho top], no label // Shoes, Puma // Bag, Lavorazione

I’m usually drawn to more structured bags, like my small Ferragamo collection, but when my mother started playing with this, I felt drawn to it too. Plus, it’s really soft.

Welcome to the family little one!
