Hit up the local jimungo mall today far too early for Black Friday. I had in mind very few and simple things to purchase -- a wool coat for winter, boots, and black skinny jeans. Sounds simple enough, right??
The boots: I stumbled upon a pair of Doc Martens at Macy's (I didn't even know they carried them!!) except the only pair in the entire store was NOT my size (the one just below, of course). My alternative were a pair of these BP boots, but I couldn't get them because apparently my dad refuses to let me get a pair of shoes more than $50. What the hell.
But I got this sweet new CK coat. Clean, simple, and classic. AND 50% off. Even better. I'll post a photo soon.
And black skinny jeans... for the life of me, I could not find a pair that fit. I don't even know HOW many stores we went to... It either fit my legs very well and was totally loose in the top of the pants, or just a huge train wreck. Damn it all. So here is my question. What brands (available in the US) do you guys recommend for black skinny jeans?
What I'm looking for is very simple: just five-pocket black skinny jeans with a little bit of stretch in them. No contrast stitching, excessive pocket detail... just plain black. Skinny. Denim. Price isn't too much of a factor, as I wear black skinnies almost half of the time. (But still within a reasonable price, of course.)
The illness totally kicked me in the ass last night. I'll spare you the gory details. But I am feeling loads better today! Spent the last two days watching movies (what else can you do when you're bedridden?)... Elizabethtown, Little Miss Sunshine, Ferris Bueller, and Twilight. Such good movies.
I thought he was alright until I saw the movie... now I am absolutely swept away by him. SO. HOT! Holy hell.
A couple weeks ago I received a package from Viktor & Rolf consisting of a few samples from their fragrance line Flowerbomb. Not exactly sure as to WHY or HOW I received these samples, but I think I vaguely remember signing up for some newsletter...
They're not kidding when they named it Flowerbomb. When I opened up the shower gel, it really is this super-intense floral scent. Even through my stuffy nose I could smell it... really pungent. The body cream is also very floral, but much more spicy and seductive... I could be crazy, but I dare say it stings the nostrils a bit too. In a good way.
I'll post more when I test 'em out...
P.S. Finally got around to watching Elizabethtown. LOVED. IT. So good.
Any movies you guys like to watch on a rainy day? xo
Perusing on Stockholm Streetstyle, this boy caught my eye. I love the clean, tailored, and oversized silhouette of the coat made casual by the versatile dark wash of the denim and scruffy sneakers. He continues the muted look with the beret, but kept it interesting with a pop of color just barely discernible underneath the coat. Very well put together.
I went to bed at a decent time last night (before midnight as opposed to after) and I still woke up feeling exhausted and shatty. After school, I immediately bought some cough medicine, cough drops, and a liter of OJ. Haha. I am taking this sickness down!!
Sorry for the blurriness, but it gives a better overall look at the shirt. And you can't tell, but the straps are braided.
I initially planned the outfit sans-scarf, but it was so chilly I had to.
And I saw that I've gotten a bunch of views (100+ in the past 24 hours, I think?!), which leads me to channel a bit of The Stylish Wanderer -- just go ahead and leave a comment already! I love all kinds of input, good or bad.
Random UO sheer grey tee, handmade tank and scarf, altered Mervyn's pants, random sports socks, Payless sneakers (friend).
UC applications are due insanely soon (I have about a week ><) and my personal statement isn't getting me into ANYWHERE. I spent the day so far being very unproductive, but at least I'm caught up on bloglovin', haha.
Oh, that sounded so sad...
No outfits lately, just tired. But I will leave this photograph of my amazing teacher's amazing jacket. Absolutely love her style.
Same boots again, can't get enough of 'emmm. The sole support isn't that good though, so my feet tend to get uncomfortable at the end of the day (and I kinda have 12+ hours days...), but they're so cool.
Makes me even more classy with pictures in front of Walgreens.
Was a bit cold this morning so I bundled up in another one of my many handmade scarves.
Not too sure, but I was thinking about getting a haircut too. I have a tendency to get antsy with such spaces in between real cuts (I think my last one was maybe... 1 1/2, 2 years ago?). What do you guys think?
Ugh. Me starting to get sick + long-ass days + UC apps + constant lack of sleep = not doing me any good.
A sweltering 74 degree high today. 74 degrees isn't that bad for California, but in November? Seriously... what the hell is up?
I totally hesitated in buying those boots but do not regret it a single bit. One of my best $5 finds ever. Yay Goodwill. Altered nightgown (from Mom), random grey knee-high socks, secondhand boots, random Walgreens sunglasses.
Monday (late post, I know!) was the Jason Mraz concert at UC Davis... pretty epic. My fellow hardcore fan of the curbside prophet and I hit up a crepe place for dinner before the concert. 'Twas pretty epic. :) One of my favorite artists of all timeee..
But I officially hate Davis. Haha.
My salsa crepe! Mmm. I can never finish the portions here...
And at the concert, with so many bitchy attendees, it was too fun.
And the next day. BFF and I with our sweet shirts. Marshalls hat, F21 burnout tee, selfmade scarf, altered black jeans, old Vans, Chinatown purse.
