to live and die in l.a.

 want to be eating this now. right now.
 grabbed a holiday flavored drink, of course...probably more cals than that cheese plate. damn you starbucks.
 hit up a creepy melrose store and z found this vest for me. she grabbed it on the rack and said "look at this hippie jam jackal vest for you". her description alone sold me before i even laid eyes on it. one look and the rest is history. can't wait to wear this little number. i look like i'm holding up a prize.
 
 
 
 and i'm back! too much jager+champagne= lazy blogger new year's weekend. these pics are from my calm before the alcohol induced storm. took in some local sites with zoey, inspired me to use a tupac song as a post title. it was actually cold, so a layered bag lady look did the trick. and yes, the hat again. it's covering my transitional hair. have since given it a rest, not to worry. this bag is the big boy version of the tiny little red nugget from the last post. velvet anything pretty much gets me every time. and a burnout is a guaranteed buy. i <3 you, velvet. most of the time. you can go wrong. very, very wrong.
dress: vintage, nude cardi: h&m, vest: malene birger, bag: something else by natalie wood, pics: zoey grossman
