au revoir, simone

Sartorially, not having a job is both a blessing and a curse.  It’s a blessing because you never really have to dress up for anything.  It’s a curse for the same reason.  So many heels unworn for so long!  So many dresses left hanging empty on the rack!  Eventually I start feeling the burn of fashion ennui and end up putting on something completely inappropriate for the (non-)occasion, as was the case today, when I wore this outfit to…the office supply store:

H&M Divided sweater, GoJane glasses and platforms, Forever 21 skirt and tights.

Heart-print tights and goofy glasses add a little levity to what could be construed as a more Serious Outfit than how I wanted this to come off.  Sometimes a girl just has to wear her scalloped six inch platforms to pick up a stapler and some cardstock, you know?

Another simple outfit with my leopard wedges today.  The best part is the above tribal skull necklace, which I handmade yesterday from clay, agate claws, and zebra jasper beads, and which is for sale on my new Etsy shop, HIPPIE SPEEDBALL, if’n you like it!

valentine in july

That’s what I feel like today…


I like this pink striped miniskirt; since it’s pretty body-skimming I kept things conservative up top:


Forever 21 miniskirt, H&M button-up shirt, Report flats, Banana Republic studded bar necklace, Classic Hardware heart charm bracelet, Forever 21 patent belt.

I’ve got Fing’rs Edge press-ons on again today, this time sheer with pink and black argyle-patterned tips.  Decorative French tips sorta make me feel like a softcore porn actress, but at the same time I kind of like that whole cheesy vibe.


Over the weekend I also tried out another 99¢ brand of crackle nail polish, Santee Shatter in neon pink, on my toes:

I think this brand might be my favorite of all the crackle polishes I’ve tried; the pattern comes out just right.  I painted it on over Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Petal Pusher.

stripes and swirls

Took a cue from Moschino Resort ’12 today by combining a demure silhouette with mismatched prints:


For jewelry, a ton of rhinestones.

Xhileration blouse, Mossimo for Target sweater, Stop Staring! patent belt, Forever 21 skirt, Report flats, Banana Republic and 99¢ rhinestone rings, both pairs of glasses from the Del Amo Indoor Swapmeet

somewhat seafaring

I thought I’d riff on the nautical trend today; it feels appropriate for hot July days.


I tied a bunch of knots in a long string of costume pearls to make them feel fresh and more my style.  I don’t usually wear pearls — these were given to me as a gift — but I like the way they look clustered up with this outfit.

Xhileration for Target boyfriend cardigan, Forever 21 blouse and skirt, Stop Staring! patent belt, Report flats, Sally Hansen Nail Polish Strips in “Kitty, Kitty.”
