California Dreaming


The blazer continues to be my favorite piece in my wardrobe. I think I wore it all but one day last week.

If I lived in California, I would wear this sort of thing every day, with the perfect pairs of simple leather sandals. The skirt is so deliciously flowy and breezy and absolutely the perfect length, falling to just below my knees. Forgive me for not doing it proper justice in the pictures!

I wore this to troll a fantastic upscale vintage shop with my friend earlier today. Though I didn't purchase anything, the store was amazing, with zillions of vintage designer pieces at obscenely good prices. And if you believe in sartorial destiny, I think I met the prom dress (and shoes!) I am fated to wear. I might try to sketch and scan them for you because they were absolutely gorgeous.

You can see the remnants of my bathing suit tan! I honestly cannot remember the last time I had such visible tan lines.

I had the most glorious time with two friends last night. We went for a freezing late night swim in our underwear while blasting The Decemberists on the outdoor speakers, then proceeded to watch four straight hours of Trueblood. Gotta love these long weekends!


Also, thanks so much to Ruxandra for the award!

I suppose I can scrape together ten interesting things about myself...

Strawberry banana smoothies are my favorite beverage, I find Alan Rickman as Professor Snape incredibly sexy, I always feel uncomfortable wearing white, watching cake shows on television is endlessly fascinating to me, I have an unexplainable love for trashy novels, I have never seen a Star Wars movie, I wish I could be barefoot all the time, my favorite type of food is Indian, I wish I could speak fluent Hebrew, and I think ballet is the most beautiful art form in existence.

In other news, I have made it my sole mission in life to get to Fashion's Night Out in New York City this Thursday. It just sounds too amazing not to be there, and when I want to do crazy stuff I make it happen, even if that stuff is happening on a school night! If I do take part in the smashingly fabulous evening full of shopping and designers and unbelievable swag, you will be the first ones to know.
