city burning to the ground

Country Road tee; French Connection leggings; Country Road patent pumps
These leggings are part fashion genius and part fashion roadkill.  I'm not quite sure which part is more dominant though..

truck stop blues

DIY Tee; Vintage levis; Nine West heels

I have really been loving this jeans + tee combination this week. I know crop tops aren't everybody's cup of tee (heehee. get it?) but I think it offsets the way the boyfriend jeans can sometimes seem frumpy and daggy.

bulls in brooklyn

Supre maxi; Balenciaga Clutch
I love the simplicity of pulling on a maxi dress. Easy, effortless and fuss-free.

make her say

Ralph Lauren Mens oxford shirt; Vintage leather skirt; Urban Original suede wedges

I really really love wearing wedges.  I don't know if I can ever love a stiletto again in the same way. These Urban Originals are so super comfy - it is like bouncing on air (I know this because I was literally bouncing with excitement in them when I first got them in the post).

skill to kill

Alice McCall "Skill to Kill" dress;  Urban Original suede wedges

OK so this dress contradicts everything my fashion sensibility dictates:  it is colourful; it is frilly; it is sweet and pretty (ick at this last point).

casey's song

Vintage camisole; vintage houndstooth mini; Johnathon Aston socks; Christian Louboutin heels
I have always struggled to feel right wearing "pretty" clothes.  It may very well be my inner child rebelling against all the cutie-pie party dresses my mother used to dress me in.

one-armed scissor

Shakuhachi/Avec Girls dress; Nine West booties; Forecast clutch

A recipe for cold weather: two parts bravery, one part great dress and a pair of over the knee socks.  Add ankle boots and serve immediately.

is this love

Witchery Dress ; Vintage studded belt; Nine West heels
I bought these heels against the advice of my best friend and my boyfriend  (apparently I have terrible taste in shoes).  For some reason, this vendetta just makes me love my lovely "ugly" shoes more.  Strange, no?

explosions in the sky

Vintage shirt; American Apparel skirt; Leona Edminston over knee tights; Louis Vuitton Manhattan PM
I have this weird obsession with sheer shirts.  Everybody else seems to think they are super rude; I think they are super fun.  It doesnt matter anyway, because what is life when you live by everyone else's rules?
