too $hort

really been laying it on thick with the sun flare action lately. but it's been sunny as hell here and it's usually late afternoon when we take pictures......prime hour for sun flare, what can i do?
classy lady right here.

i just might still be paying this bad boy off. i mean, i bought it eons ago. dear barney's card: you're evil.
this picture makes me think......hmmmm i wonder what kind of awesome bacteria i pick up when my bag drags on the dirty sidewalk like this?
in need of some sunglasses right here. looking pisssssed cause i'm trying desperately to keep my eyes from squinting. now that i've cleared that up, here's one of the 203972 items i own that i've gotten shortened way too short. word to the wise, don't pin your own things before taking them to the tailor. cause you will get stuck with a bunch of cheek grazing garments that are basically awkwardly long tops. and then i end up ripping the hem out to make it longer and i may as well have cut it myself and saved the 20 bones for a professional raw edge unfinished hem.....oh well. too short is better than the amishly long dress in desperate need of a rumspringa. (an amish adolescent rebellious phase). speaking of rebellion, it's friday. make like too $hort and blow the whistle.

  23. Ugh... I am the absolute worst with alterations. I always try and do them myself and end up with some weird long on one side/curvy hem frayed atrocity. Oh well. I almost bought that jacket when it was on sale for $400 and regret not getting it every day of my life basically.

  33. oh hey there amazing jacket that's only been present in my dreams, what's up?
    &i'm pretty sure i find them comfy as i've whipped my feet into submission by once wearing too-skinny-heel-no-platform torture devices for over 12 hours without ever taking them off for a break
    now, anything with a chunky heel and platform is like walking on cloud stilts

    or maybe "once you go numb, you ain't feelin dumb" (for purchasing them that is)?
