Well, my hair is growing out finally. I have lots and lots and lots of hair, and I usually give up at about this length and revert to a super short style, but I’ve been enjoying styling my longish layers.

Halloween. I’m sure many Etsians are going to be posting gorgeous home made decorations and cookies and adorable children. Sorry guys, that’s not my game.
This, this is my game. That’s right, I’ll probably be sitting on my porch handing out candy as a cat who is dressed like a shark.
So, eff your cookies.
I’ve been so busy. I have also had a weird week. This blog post is more like a mix tape to myself.
Have a good week!
Well today is my first day back to school. As a little kid, it was so important to pick out the best possible outfit for that all-important day. It was the way everyone would remember you forever!
You know what? I’m totally okay with this. I would wear this outfit right. fucking. now. Check out all that swag!
I’m taking a slightly less neon approach this year. And I’m awfully sad about it, in retrospect.

I have been having a really great summer so far. Taking on a lot of new experiences, pushing my boundaries a little bit socially. And I’ve been having fun getting dressed.
I’m working a little scavenger hunt into my thrifting and garage-saleing this summer. It keeps “work” feeling a little more like “play.” My three Big Win Finds are
1) high waisted pants and or shorts
2) the elusive Perfect Pair of Jorts*
3) Sleeveless Tops (the more side boob, the better)
Today’s find are HIGH WAISTED JORTS.
I bought these last week. I have had an especially hard time finding high-waisted shorts that fit my thighs. I have slim legs and a lot of the leg openings are huuuuuge. This is problem is not so pronounced with these featured jorts because they hit at about mid-thigh and then I roll them up.
I love these because you can wear a super basic top with them. High waisted jorts are statement enough for me thanks!
What are your favorite summer thrift finds?
*I would like to call attention to a point of contention amongst my friends and fellow jorts enthusiasts. Some people believe that perfect jorts can not be BOUGHT but must be MADE, by cutting off cherished jeans. I myself believe in the power of the hemmed jort in addition to the power of the fray.
I love the great vintage look of this lingerie campaign. Aaaaand I love Maggie Gyllenhaal.
So, gratuitous blog post, begin.
These are some pictures released from her Agent Provocateur campaign.
It is so nice here, it is in the 70’s (spit take!!) so I busted out some shorts.
Like I said, it was actually pretty warm today. I ended up taking the sweater off… I went up to register for school and the campus is very windy. It was perfection.
This belt is from the shop. It is too big for me, but I love the way it looks.
I got this great bag from my aunt. It is a wonderful hand embroidery on burlap. It will probably end up in the shop but right now I am really enjoying it.
Blouse: MotherMidnight (back when they were brick and mortar!).
Shorts: ex-boyfriends pants, cut off. Oh yeah.
Bag: Family Heirloom.
Here are a few of my favorite looks from the 2011 Grammy Awards. Sorry that all I’ve posted in the last few days is boring award show looks (although don’t we love how inventive some of the music awards shows get, in terms of fashion??) but Colin gave me a wonderful cold and all I’ve been doing is laying on the couch reading lady blogs.
I stumbled across these pictures of Julianne Moore today from the 2011 BAFTAS. I love this glamorous look she has going on. And I hate to admit I am sort of loving this velvet trend. (Never. Thought. I. Would. Say. It.)
There were lots of other great dresses (most notably Emma Watson who looks absolutely phenomenal with her pixie cut – more on that later when I flesh out my hours of searching through vintage hairstyle blogs).
Check out the pictures here.
I got this great vest thinking, “someone is going to love this piece!” I have a friend Jenny who wears a vest and always looks great. I always wished I was a person who could “pull off” a vest.
I usually go to lunch with my boyfriend once a week, and for some reason (even though he tends to poke a little fun at me about it) I always tend to wear what I would consider semi-daring outfits. Something about showing up in what I see to be a totally knock out vintage outfit. I also tend to wear a little extra make up. (Lipstick? To lunch? There is something so romantic about it.)
