never say never...

back when i had standards i would look at the store wet seal and think hellllls no. too much glitter, too many colors, too "trendy" yada yada. well one day i stumbled upon their online store and saw a cute little black bandage skirt for, get this, $10.50. i mean its not hervĂ© but for a poorish college student it will do. so i dragged my friends to the store with me and we found exactly what we were looking for, and unfortunately more. they were having a "buy one get one for a penny sale"..never a good idea. we've come out looking like we moonlight at your local street corner but hey it's not what you wear it's how you wear it

well it's been building up inside of me for oh i don't know how long

the beach boys "don't worry baby"

just when i thought i wanted fall, they have me already lusting for spring

i could go into extensive coverage of nyfw like every other website out there, but i figure hey everyone's seen it all before. sooo i am only covering my personal favorite clothing line, MILLY. so awesome i named my dog after it in 2005. the spring 2010 did not fail to disappoint. i love that the designer (michele smith) consistently sticks to the same styles and silhouettes (i.e. flirty cocktail dresses, elbow length swing coats, cute top/cute shorts combo, gold embellishments, fun prints, etc etc). she only makes minor tweaks here and there, yet the designs always look current. goes to show that fashion is not about buying the newest fad, but using what you've got to update your look and keep it fresh.

vintage fur

i was given a fur stole just like the one in this spread by a lady in a tchotchke (i googled the proper spelling of that word..who knew?!) thrift shop back home. she said i could have it as long as i promised to love fur until the day i die. she was such a fond fur lover that she claimed she would wear fur underwear if they sold it. i took the stole and ran

some good reads
