Windy





Open Knit Sweater- 12th Street Cynthia Vincent, Floral Bells- Free People, Circle Scarf- Wilfred (Aritzia), Hourglass Necklace- BCBGeneration, Crystal Ring- Ylang23, Armor Ring- Free People, Turquoise Ring and Wood Rosary- Vintage, Lita Boots- Jeffrey Campbell

I am completely in love with the open-knit bell sleeve coziness of this sweater. Too bad it belongs to my lovely friend Casey. I had no idea a piece of clothing could cause so much bedlam at the Shaw/Pellicone apartment. Joey keeps sniffing the sweater and asking me why I don't wear perfume more often, and General Sherman has been sitting in the closet like, staring up at it nonstop. I don't know if kitty is yearning to shred or cuddle, but I suspect the former (although the latter would be pretty adorable). I think the next cat we adopt should be named General Bonkers. There's something wildly hilarious about having a General Sherman and a General Bonkers- like one is super serious and one's just completely insane. But I digress (actually, the digression began immediately following the first sentence- oh well). 
So I'm pretty much set regarding bell bottom things. I kind of already was, but the floral print on these is just way too good to pass up. I said I was done buying knits about six months ago and that sure as hell hasn't happened, so my closet is starting to be half bell bottoms, half hugely oversized knits. 
Well, enjoy the windy photos, because that wind is bringing another (!!) snowstorm, and we Texans fall apart if there's even the slightest wintry weather. I don't know how you people do outfit posts when there's snow- for me, anything beyond cowering in my apartment (with the heat cranked all the way up) is an accomplishment. Have a lovely Wednesday!

Oh. And I'm kinda sure I am going to bleach my eyebrows. They pretty much already don't exist, but I saw a photo of Britt Maren that made me realize I need them to be even whiter. Go figure.

  6. Hahaha holy shit, I just dyed my eyebrows really dark. It's REALLY obvious if you look at my current photos and then look back to the ones where I'm in the leopard coat. You should do it though, I guess we don't really realize how much our eyebrows affect our appearance until we change them? If that makes sense. Anyway, I love those bellbottoms and I feel like you probably have the most epic bellbottom collection ever after buying those and the AG's.
