Le Mal et La Laide

Yesterday morning, I got out of the shower, looked in the mirror and went "ugh." Nothing was WORKING--my hair wouldn't cooperate, my skin insisted on being blotchy, my face didn't look right with or without glasses (sounds weird, but my facial features change regularly), and I definitely did not appreciate the extra chin that seems to be forming without my approval. I tried to get dressed several times over, but the outfit didn't really work,...

Tumblr Tuesday: Kryptonite Quartz and Spilt Milk

I've always been weirdly fascinated by planet Krypton-looking quartz; Only Mme. Casta could make lounging on a big tangle of string/rope/cotton candy(?) look this good; Rainbow icees make summer worth the heat; No use crying over spilt milk when you can just row, row, row your boat in it; I wish I could make paint daubs on a canvas look like high art; This couch made entirely of pillows is an afternoon nap waiting to...

Trendspotting: Denim Cutoffs

Dressed in (almost) All Black Like The Omen

Thrifted blazer; American Apparel skirt; Mustard Seed tank; Ash sandals; jewelry from unknown vendorsAs much as I want to wear multiple bright colors, it never seems to work out. I wore my DIY sleeveless blazer with plenty of goes-with-everything black, red drop earrings, and my favorite orange lipstick. I guess I've always been more comfortable playing the demon child.Have a great weekend!...

Sexy Secretaries and Burnt Oranges at Resort 2012

The Resort collections are moving right along without much fanfare, which is kind of the point of Resort--not everyone and their grandma sees it, so it's more difficult to identify which collection pieces came from and when. Pretty sweet deal for the fashion lover who doesn't want people pointing and yelling "Miu Miu, Spring 2010!" when she walks down the street.Some of my favorites so far:And, apparently, Alber ('cause we're...

DIY Collection: Sleeveless vest

Y'all won't believe this, but I finished another DIY Collection project! This time, I decided to take on the sleeveless blazer--I'm much better at destroying and deconstructing than I am at creating.I decided to use this rarely-worn rayon-blend blazer I picked up from a thrift store last year. I love the pattern and the shape, but hardly ever wear it because it's usually too hot for long sleeves by the time...

Tumblr Tuesday: Cute Kittens and a Magical Wonderland

I wish I could figure out how to work a full-on tree into my living room decor; Studded nude heels go with everything; Can there ever really be enough cute kitties on the internets?; I can't believe this magical wonderland exists in real life; Love this wax seal-inspired bracelet charm by Jessica de Lotz; a strawberry and cream covered waffle is officially the new Breakfast of Champions.Find more inspiration at stylesample.tumblr.com!...

Crazy or lazy

Spent the weekend alternately lying around in complete slacker mode or running around like a chicken with my head cut off--no in-between. Crazy or lazy, I always say.Thrifted shorts, belt & top; no-name bag; Naughty Monkey sandals; Stetson hatOn Saturday, the most strenuous thing I did was eat. To be fair, I actually LEFT THE HOUSE to do so. TWICE. That has to count for something.SSOMOn Sunday, I headed over to Main Street to volunteer...
