stratosphere








[vintage Navajo-polka dot-winter-reindeer dress/ Forever 21 booties & knee-highs/ vintage Levi's jean vest/ beat to hell Chanel purse]

A bit carried away with the pictures today during the interlude between Caprese salads at the best waterfront bistro and enjoying the brisk weather. I've been wearing these boots non-stop; and sadly, the faux-leather on the back of the heel got shredded while out dancing! For the meantime, I'm just avoiding facing away from people...I'm not sure if I would elicit some strange looks if I brought these obviously faux shoes to a leather repair shop? Hm Hm Hm. 
I think this outfit has a cool laid back vibe, which is a total departure from my norm of dressing. I think I balanced the jean vest with girly ruched stockings, though. I've also rediscovered the joy of this purse. I've had it forever, and numerous adventures as well as a torrid summer in Europe have left it pretty beat up, but I'm starting to dig the worn-in feel.

Who else is anxiously/delightedly awaiting the Louise Goldin/Topshop collabo? I need me some of that hardware action.





I'm still in love with the Fall  09 Missoni ad campaign. It makes me want to wear docs and long scarves 24/7.

Can't wait for the weekend to get here, I'm going to see Mickey Avalon this saturday!
