Tight Black Pants Exotic


Once again, the weather is unseasonably beautiful. Oh, and the post title is from "Lucky Number Nine" by The Moldy Peaches, a song which mostly makes my ears bleed but has some nice moments.

Normally I restrict my blog photography to the backyard for fear of neighbors and passing drivers looking at me strangely, but the light on the driveway this morning was too nice to pass up.

My first actual new purchase since the summer! I got a receipt and a shopping bag and everything! As much as I adore vintage clothes, I was beginning to crave something unworn. I can think of no accessory more perfect than a cozy scarf in turquoise leopard print. I got this sweet little plaid jacket from Emmy in a clothing swap!

Haircut! Can you tell? Probably not, actually... I promise to take some good pictures of it soon. In addition to having freshly pruned curls, I discovered the most fantastic smoothing cream that has actually kept my frizz on lockdown (this stuff, if you're curious). I think I play with hair products the way kindergartners play with blocks.

PacSun scarf and jeans, Forever 21 tee and wool jacket, vintage boots, vintage silver ring, ShopKim black ring

I feel like I could do anything in this outfit. Not in a Wonder Woman way, but it feels totally appropriate for school, for going out, seeing a concert, hopping on a plane to Paris or London... what I mean is, I feel incredibly comfortable in this outfit, in a way I don't often feel in my clothes. Hopefully you get what I mean.

Hannukah is (pretty much) just around the corner, which hopefully means plenty of shopping money... I have already begun to plan a fabulous New York City shopping foray with my best friend. Even though I do not celebrate Christmas, this time of year always feels a little sparklier and more festive than the rest. If only it would start snowing already!

Yeeeah freaking awesome british hunting jacket REPRESENT. I still don't think I've recovered from the freak out I had upon finding it...but the buttons were just too much for me to deal with. I'M GLAD YOU'LL ACTUALLY WEAR IT!

oh right, and i need to post...but there's no light outside. Frick.

Love the boots.. Have some similar but the soles have fallen off and are hence not very waterproof.. hey, they were £1 from a carboot sale!

I like what you've done with the pictures also.

It would be mine

p.s i love outfits which make you feel empowered. It's a good feeling.

I just so love this whole outfit, but am in total envy of those boots. (I have a thing for boots).
The photos are wonderful! What a neat idea.

I too play with hair products. This stuff sounds good. Anything to keep the friss at bay. I may have to give it a try :)

Love the plaid jacket and the pavement offers a really nice background.

Love the jacket! I agree, you could wear it pretty much anywhere...and you should (:
There's that certain thrill to buying brand new clothes, I think...I actually prefer it to buying vintage.
Happy early Hannukah!
