pink pants

vintage sweater, A.P.C. parka, pants c/o iTEM denim, Rebecca Minkoff bag, Acne Pistol boots, Karen Walker sunglasses

Five things that come to mind when I look at these photos:
  1. I really need a haircut
  2. I should start wearing different shoes at least once a week
  3. The "blogger looking down nonchalantly" pose is not very flattering on me
  4. I was probably looking at my shoes and thinking about point #2
  5. But seriously, why am I always wearing the same shoes when I take photos?
Ahh who cares, these boots are awesome. Best purchase of 2012.

(throwing this last one in to look less pose-y, took me a minute to figure out how to put on my parka, hurrrrrr)

prints please

Won Hundred dress c/o Goodstead, Acne jacket, Acne Pistol boots, vintage sunglasses

Wore this dress to the Refinery29 SF Anniversary party last week and put it on again recently, love the print and fit! Not sure about the lipstick, I was reaching for red and ended up with orange, oops. I'm surprised the dress survived the party without any cranberry juice stains or any other spilled drinks. Success!

Not much has been going on, nothing worth mentioning at least. The boy and I have been obsessed with a puzzle game for the iPad called Flow so we haven't been up to much, hah. Old couple status already?

happy 4th

Girl by Band of Outsiders dress from Bastille SF, vintage Levi's gingham shirt, Rebecca Minkoff Romeo bag, Michael Kors watch, Ciara Platform Sandals c/o Pour la Victoire, Karen Walker sunglasses

Wore this yesterday to hang out with friends at Dolores Park in celebration of July 4th! Ended up with blisters after walking around the Mission in these Pour la Victoire sandals. Also kind of regretted my decision to wear a dress when the winds started picking up in the afternoon, oops. Despite a few wardrobe malfunctions I tried my best to be festive by sticking to PBR and Budweiser but immediately regretted it when I started to feel hungover around midnight after drinking all day. Totally worth it though. After the park we wandered over to Dr. Teeth for 25 cent chicken wings and then a friend's house in the outer Mission to light fireworks. We ran out pretty quickly but luckily the neighbors must have had hundreds, maybe thousands of dollars worth of (albeit illegal) pyrotechnics that made our fireworks look like sparklers in comparison. Only in the Mission?

wren summer 2012

I was flipping through last month's issue of Lucky Magazine and found Wren's Ikat Shirtdress which I apparently can't find on the site anymore. Bummer, apparently it was 50% off with a code too. Lookbooks like Wren's Summer 2012 one make me seriously consider moving somewhere with a real summer until I realize I don't actually like anything about 85 degrees. The grass is always greener on the other side, I suppose. But seriously though, how sick is that ikat print? Can someone please make a bedspread out of that?
