Urban Behaviour courtesy of Threadsence. Vintage polka-dot thing. Alex Lane shorts. Martin Margiela shoes.

Talk about an ephemeral heat-wave in California, I missed my 80 degree sun. Estranged weather patterns in California called for perfection where it’s hot in the sun but cool in the shade. I figured as much pulling out my barely there outfits I've missed so much. A rather astute reader commented that I’ve been keen to the croptop silhouette lately. It didn’t even dawn on me, but I guess I’ve been subconsciously pairing said combination and look forward to doing more so if the weather holds up.

Excited to hang out with friends this weekend that I haven’t seen way too long because they have better study habits than I do. Anticipating a good time this following week.

    Raych, you never cease to amaze, babe! From what seems an uncanny combo of amazingly wondrous imagination & creativity in tandem with delightfully whimsical flair & personality, you manifest a marvelous "sense of style" uniquely your own! :)

    Now, really, (as someone alluded, above) who else besides you would've "creatively, imaginatively thunk" to not only boldly introduce exciting polka dot to enhance a simple casual look, but to have "contrasting and dancing polkas" together - - - a rare true treat of stimulating visual wonder! Talk 'bout "gettin/capturing one's eye or attention!" :)

    And then, "lo & behold," like a "truly divine, fashion diva," you give a simple yet sensational look, an absolutely crowning touch, how ...?

    "Wow!," by placing a "simply stylish" headband crown upon coif, and "damn/bam!", "voila!": like magic & fairytale fantasy, behold a beautifully stunning princess/goddess!!! I iterate, "babe, you so rock!" :)
