pencil me in

you guys ask about my bras alot, and i swear i will do a post about it. but in the meantime this is the bra im wearing here. and it's one of my faves. good thin straps. which are a must. cause let's get real i'm not holding anything serious up.
 boot strap: litter sf. gnarly sharp. predicting a puncture wound in my near future.
just got this thick chain bracelet, perfect addition to the stack.
 bang update: bothering me on a daily basis. like right here.
boring white wall post loves props. in this case my dog's burger. so close to my mouth. gross.
i rarely wear anything that is super fitted....but every once in a while i get a wild hair and decide: skintight! i even have a couple bodycon dresses lurking somewhere in my closet along with all things massive and flowy, huge and unflattering. like it's friend the blazer, i find the pencil skirt riding the wave of business attire. to take it out of the office,  an old baggy, see-through, bra showin' tee, and some dingy denim. you have to excuse me now, i am going to chill by the water cooler.
skirt: alexander wang, t-shirt: blue life, shirt: current/elliott, cardigan: 3.1 phillip lim

  5. I always love the way you show all the layers, so you can create different looks when it is actually one look. the basic: just a simple black skirt and start from there. love the white blouse. even if you are wearing a stylish skirt, you still manage to look like you. this is what a true fashionista is, she can do something fabulous with almost anything. oh and of course, i love your jewelry as always.

  6. LOVE this layered look! You can strip down, mix and match into different looks all day, very convenient :)

    P.S. I just finished posting up the photos of my mini collection pieces. I'd love for you to visit and see how my sketches became reality :)
