straight up and dirty

March 25, 2009

Spring break is right around the corner! I can't imagine that I'll be doing anything productive nor [that] exciting, but the break from school sounds fantastic!

I've worn this Beth Bowley cardigan to its death in highschool; and it's still one of my favorites. But the first button hole is completely mangled from only buttoning the first button (which are cute little pearls). 

James picked out this skirt from Urban Outfitters and is extremely proud that he managed to snag it between layers of discarded jeans in the sales rack (it was on sale for $20 at the store we went to... apparently not online). The tank top is from American Apparel (I want more!) and the shoes are Chloé.

ETA: I totally forgot to post this interview I did for the lovely Shantee at

    I feel like a stalker, but your outfit really inspired me to pull out a hand-me-down skirt from the 90s that looks like that! :) High-waisted, very similar shape, dark blue, with cream buttons down the center. Paired it with a beige top. Channeling Rachel, except more trashy. Haha.

  27. you look amazing!! LOVE IT!!! great blog!!!

  28. ive been back and forth on these chloes.. but seeing them on you definatly made me really like them. you rock them well!

  29. Love this outfit, really spring-y.

  30. Too perfect. This photo itself is perfect. Won't the wind get in the way of the skirt? I love skirts like these, but it's too windy here to walk safely...

  31. May Kasahara - I have the link up for the AA tank. It's the Sexuali Tank - seriously GET ALL THE COLORS!

    Cindy - *blush*

    Antonia - Urban is totally overpriced but their sales are heaven!

    Chris - Unfortunately, I don't know of any place. I usually tailor things myself, but I've been wanting to take a few things to "Make it Fit" in the Tustin Market Place, I'm not sure if they're still open though. My best bet for finding quality places in your city is via That website is like God.

    Natalie - Doesn't sound trashy at all to me! Do I smell a new silhouette catching on?

    Slegna - I wouldn't mind channeling a little Marilyn ;)

  32. your look is great!! nice blog :)


  33. Ya, I had quite an unhealthy obsession with her too - and these pics just re-fueled it!

    But yes, of course link swap (I added you to FB the other day too?)!

    And the pink lipstick is Dame Edna for MAC limited edition lipstick in "Gladiola". I can't live without it!
