sweet escape.

cut-out blouse: trouve | metallic pleated trousers: topshop | fringe booties: jeffrey campbell 

fashion blogging is an awkward thing. case in point: in attempts to conceal the embarrassment that is making people photograph you in front of coworkers, mina & i accidentally discovered this sweet rooftop escape at her place of work.

i think the fact that nothing fits me correctly is a blessing in disguise seeing as how i like to sag my pants or wear them baggy. these trousers, perfect example. and these booties worn three blog posts in a row? sorry i'm not sorry.

oh, and if you're wondering about the unusually silky smoothness that is my hair right now - you can thank bespoke hair salon for that. they worked wonders on it (as in they brushed it, don't expect this to happen again).

Happy Feet.

oversized cardigan: topshop (old) | hoodie: converse | denim skirt: NSF from arrow | fringe booties: jeffrey campbell (old) | beanie: duffy from OPM 

this is my interpretation of bulking up: lots of thick layers. i've been religiously living in these jc's like nobody's business. an oldie but goodie, so versatile + so comfy. #winwinwin

Dress. Pants.

photos are selfies

tie-dye kimono: zara | crop top: ecote | jeans: random, old | fringe booties: jeffrey campbell (old) | necklace: jewelmint | hat: midnorth mercantile

woke up this morning and decided i miss summer, which prompted me to put on this tie dye kimono/dress that is usually reserved for wearing over a bikini. in place of said bikini, instead are pants. coincidentally enough, manrepeller had similar thoughts about her wardrobe today. 

and yes i am aware, i am a very messy person. love it or leave it b.

you will walk differently alone, dear, through a thicker atmosphere, forcing your way through the shadows of chairs, through the dripping smoke of funnels. you will feel your own reflection sliding along the eyes of those who look at you. you are no longer insulated; but i suppose you must touch life in order to spring from it.
