late night in crushed velvet & denim


Threw on an old velvet shirt (handsewn by my mom!) that I stole from my sister's closet. Major throwback. Worn with a light blue denim-wash studded cutout dress and various gold accessories, including my favorite leaf-inspired ear cuff, and the handy A-Wang Brenda. The jacket was a $10-ish thrift shop gem, completely faux fur lined and incredibly warm :)

floaty pastels x vintage chanel mesh sandals

 
Sunnyvale (Norcal!) is SO perfect for floaty pastels even on a cloudy day. Ughhhhh I hate to leave =( Okay, not to re-hash but I love TheRealReal. I am slowly transitioning my wardrobe into a dangerous territory of 20% realreal vs 80% regular normal purchases. Well... not quite there yet but soon... one day ;) Scored these Chanel mesh sandals in excellent condition in my size (37!) and they are actually wide enough in the front (who doesn't want hobbit feet) that my toes don't scream bloody murder post-wear. :D The gold mesh straps make me so happy I could cry. Metal rocker enough but pairs exceedingly well given the gold color. I canNOT wait to wear this in warmer weather! I imagine they'll be sitting in dust bags for a while though upon return to NYC...

ugly sweater day in bodega bay


Fine, not that ugly of a sweater. This is a reindeer sweater that I sniped from Dad's closet, paired with a coral jean-skort borrowed from Mommy. Hehehe. :D

cleanin out these closets

 
I like traveling light, and as a general rule of thumb I limit myself to one carry-on when I'm going home. I always try

the ebay kaftan and brenda bag contents


I am back home in Sunnyvale for a week or so and finally have the time to confront my technology problems, as in a semi-broken computer (fun stuff), a dysfunctional Samsung 7" galaxy tab (it loves no styluses / stylusi?) and more. Was on my way to dilly daddle over to the nearest Radioshack by foot (licensed hobo driving in streets is not a good idea; trust me), but ended up just taking some pictures in the warmth-inducing sun for an hour or so. Then got too tired from sunbeam-bathing and went home.

attic adventures

Went upstairs this weekend to try to shoot on the real rooftop of my building but unfortunately there was an emergency block. Skylight worked out okay I guess. Those narrow sides are pretty treacherous so I just inched my way over through the classic butt-slide. Yeah. Graceful.

sweater dress sundays



This dress is definitely bordering trashy but whatever. I'm going to call it a "sweater" dress" but in reality it's pure rainbow fishnet goodness from Ebay (China). Got it for $7.
