Leather Shorts and Jevans.





Leopard Jacket- Zara, Quilted Leather Shorts- 3.1 Phillip Lim, Grey Sweatshirt- Nation, Black Ankle Boots- Sam Edelman

I am pretty sure these leather shorts are one of the luckier finds of my shopping career (that statement doesn't sound odd or anything). But seriously, I was wandering aimlessly through Nordstrom a few days ago and there they were, inexplicably marked down to about half the original price (which wasn't ridiculously high to begin with). I remember The Unstoppable Rumi Neely waxing poetic on her blog about how great they were a few months ago and she really wasn't exaggerating. Anyway, Joey and I decided to take photos at the usually quiet independent movie theater near our apartment and we think there was some type of high school formal event happening. It was the corniest thing ever- they had this red carpet leading to the front door, complete with a bored looking woman clutching a microphone and making nice comments about the girls' dresses. I suppose there was some variation on a Hollywood theme? Awkward-acting teens who didn't seem to have much to do but wander around in clusters relegated us to a corner of the lobby with some rather harsh lighting, which sucked. But guess what doesn't suck- the fact that one of the coolest people in the world found my blog. Her name is Jevans (real name, I promise) and she is hilarious. She is also one of the few people who made attending a largely Baptist, generally insane university (Baylor- hello, College President Kenneth Starr!) pretty fun. So, hi Jevans! I miss you and your hilarious one-liners and predilection for refusing to look anyone in the eye, under any circumstances. Jevans brought my husband and I together by pretending to need Calculus tutoring (she is a math genius) in order to lure him to our apartment. Then she had to sit there for an hour and act like she didn't understand her homework while I pretended to watch TV. Good times.
Goodnight, all!
