pepto party

 the pitfalls of light colored suede: dirt ripples. thanks for nothing scotch guard.
 look at that shirt. wrinkle city. rumplestiltskin. i may have pulled it out of the hamper.
 held out on alexander wang bags until this backpacktastic fool came along. and i scored it on sale. i know, shocking. i'm still shocked. put it on the barney's card. hello, finance charges.
 i should've called this post change your clothes. because this is allll i've been wearing lately. i've been in a seven month relationship with this jacket----we are gonna go the distance. maybe a fall wedding. the denim shirt has been slept in on many occasion, and the shorts haven't been removed from my body the entire week. i'm not gonna lie about these granny high waisted blindingly pink babies---they will ride up as far as you let them, there's not a sliver of stretch---whatsoever, and they aren't lined, which = itchy and scratchy like a mofo. but they are so effing cute to me that i deal with the trials and tribulations that come with wearing them. these boots were my best purchase of the year, and this hat i'm considering in every color. leather jackets and long sleeves in the summer is a damn shame california. don't use june gloom as an excuse.
shorts: kenny, shirt: one teaspoon, jacket: 3.1 phillip lim (this is a rad alternative), backpack: alexander wang, pics: zoey grossman

  20. I've been drooling over your blog for some time now and I must admit that it is overwhelmingly my favorite one out there (I've raved about it to all my friends on countless occasions). Your impeccable style is so effortless, yet you manage to keep it exciting and fresh. Oh and those shorts are pretty damn amazing! It's a shame they aren't more comfortable, but I don't blame you in the least for going five-year-old-toddler-can't-leave-safety-blanket on them taking them everywhere you go!
