Pretty Colors




 Peter Pan Collar Dress- Alexa Chung for Madewell, Booties- Sam Edelman, Rings- Free People, Rosary- Aldo

Courtney and I found this random wall when we were driving around downtown looking for a phantom warehouse (actually, we did end up finding the warehouse, but it came with a security guard who seemed to take his job very seriously) and we immediately knew it must be photographed. Such beautiful colors. I rarely wear this Alexa Chung dress, and I wonder if it needs a bit of hemming. If it were shorter and worn with opaque tights then I think I would like it better. Anyway, I am currently wearing these crazy chiffon pants I ordered from Topshop that I have decided are the perfect article of clothing- I can't wait to take photos in them. There's something about the swishing fabric when I walk and all the slightly offended glances (from people who are obviously easily offended) that make me quite happy. Yesterday I wore them with my Litas and this lady in Neiman's was practically apoplectic. I seriously thought she was going to keel over from sheer anger. But people in hot pink juicy sweatsuits probably shouldn't judge others' sartorial choices. Oh! I have a photo meant for my last post that I completely forgot about, but I really love it so...                                    


Thank you, childhood self, for your tree-climbing prowess. And thank you, Courtney Teesdale, for your camera-action prowess. The scarf wasn't in the last post, so in case you were wondering, it's Wilfred from Aritzia. One last thing- I've noticed that older horror movies can be pretty inspirational style-wise, and I found a really great one. "The Sentinel" (1976) is not only a decently creepy story, but the clothes are amazing. I drove Joey crazy with my constant "I would totally wear that"s. I couldn't find any good screen grabs, but I highly recommend watching it, if only for the great outfits on the main character. Have a lovely lovely evening!

  2. I think the first dress looks very cute on you but I see what you mean about possibly hemming it. Cute either way though

  8. I've just stumbled across your blog and love it! I know what you mean about people judging you, where I live everyone lives in tracksuits and gold chains, oddly enough I get more strange looks wearing a suit jacket with jeans then the Katie Price wannabe girls.
