things i want for fall

1.) I already have a pair of half-tint sunglasses but the perfect roundness of this 80s Purple pair is so good.

2.) I’ll be in San Francisco in late November so I’m going to need a heavier coat. Ideally I want something in an unusual color, so I’m really feeling the retro shape and slightly offbeat pink of this ASOS A-line coat.

3.) I’ve been spending a lot of time writing and recording music at home on GarageBand lately, and I really want a Stylophone — a pocket synthesizer invented in 1967 that’s operated with a stylus and has been used by artists like Kraftwerk and David Bowie.  It’s cheap (about $20) and compact, perfect for hyper-amateur musicians on the go like me.

4.) If Chanel is any indicator (which it always is), pale blue will be a popular nail color for the fall/winter season.  I like OPI’s “What’s With The Cattitude?”

5.) Well, these are skinny jeans with unicorns printed on them, so, nuff said.

6.) I’m completely obsessed with the UNIF Hellraiser loafer.  It’s a little out of my price range but I’m considering saving my pennies because it’s basically perfect.

7.) Uh, everything about this Actual Pain “Immortal Mouse” tank is incredible.

8.) And how good would this Disney Couture “Minnie X Mawi” black pearl ring look with it?

9.) I’m doing a lot of traveling this fall and I want to start documenting my trips in different ways.  I’m interested in getting an easy-to-use film camera like this Holga 120.  I’m so used to the instant gratification of digital photography that I think taking film photos might lead to some good, or at least funny, shots.

FYF

I went to FYF Fest in downtown L.A. yesterday.  My camera’s out of commission for a few days, but here’s a drawing of what I wore:

The style you see at big outdoor music festivals like FYF is pretty ridiculous.  Lots of people seem to really go all out with their most outrageous outfits.  Personally, I just wanted to be comfortable and not too hot, so I wore a boxy dolman-sleeve t-shirt from Target, denim shorts, black ankle socks, and my saddle shoes.  My point of interest was the little handmade cameo pin I made:

I have a whole slew of these little guys in my Etsy shop right now!

i might be four years old

Isn’t it awkward when you’re dressed almost exactly the same as a four-year-old girl at the pharmacy?  Something tells me I should take that as a sign — a sign this outfit is totally awesome!

Topshop dress, Funtasma saddle shoes, Forever 21 cardigan.

This jersey dress from Topshop is so easy to throw on; the detail in the back makes it look fancier than it feels to wear it.  Add some red lipstick — instant outfit.

The best part, though, is my handmade wild eyeball bracelets:

These are for sale in my Etsy shop, but I love them so much I kind of want to keep them for myself.  I definitely have to go back and get more of these insane glass beads.

season of the witch


My friend Kristina is an accessories buyer at Forever 21 and she sent me over this Missoni-esque headwrap to style.  I don’t usually wear this color scheme but I knew I had a sweet old Blood Is The New Black t-shirt that would go with it perfectly, and I ended up loving what I came up with:


Forever 21 headwrap (knotted in front), H&M sweater, Blood Is The New Black t-shirt, Forever 21 shorts, Minnetonka moccasins, Girlprops half-tint sunglasses.

cool story, bro

Is there something wrong with me?  Do I spend too much time on the internet?  Is that why I kind of really want these laser-cut earrings from Sleek & Destroy?
