Snack Attack

I’ve got the sale season muchies.  I tried this dress on in navy at Barneys and kept my eye on it online.  Fortunately, it made it through to the 50 percent markdown.  And then, it was worn.

Moustache Man made good on his promise to visit the beach more this summer, so here we are going on trip two in a row!  I hope it isn’t overcast like last weekend, but P is pretty confident it will be sunny and clear.  He’s been performing his special sun dance.  Yeh seeeeeeee?

A little nude nail polish and voilà, floating rhinestones.  Purists need not worry, it comes right off.

Hold It

After seeing all the neon effect necklaces out and about I couldn’t help desiring a little rhinestone sparkle in my life.  I found a great vintage piece and was going for more of a Margiela powder coat, but had to scratch the idea due to possible poisonous side effects.  I ended up going with my original plan, which just proves you should always stick with your first instincts.

Moustache Man and I have been cruising the city for our latest photo sets.  I’m happy to say that we’ve found some great spots around my old internship stomping grounds bringing back fond memories of the burrito truck, diaper photo shoots and general footwear design genius.  More later.

well, howdy

This pleated chiffon scrap had been sitting in my pile of to be continued . . . projects for a few weeks now.  I knew what I wanted to make, but needed to let the idea stew for a bit.  I was inspired by my unconditional skirt trousers from a while back.  Even though they’re my favorite trousers, I found myself craving something that was a little more versatile, something I could wear over dresses, skirts, pants and of course tuck my revolver into.

This is not a test

This is not a test . . . this is not a test . . . this is not a dress . . .

I’m not mad, the sun’s just in my eyes.  I couldn’t help participating in a DIY Jil Sander veiled beanie with some online guidance from honestly wtf and nitrolicious.  The only thing I did different was to trim off the end of the veil netting . . . the thick black thread was too contrasty.

This is the perfect accessory for me right now.  I’m in the awkward process of growing out my hair and not only does the beanie hide my lack of haircut/style, but holds my bangs out of my eyes and allows me to see.  The past few weeks made me realize I’ve taken sight for granted.  P sez seeing is overrated.  Then he bumped into a wall.
