everything that shines won't always be gold

April 26, 2010

Comme des Garcons skirt. Vera Wang wedges. Grey ant shirt. Miu Miu sunglasses. Urban Outfitters purse. Forever 21 headband.

There are too many buttons on this shirt than I can deal with for my clothing tolerance. Nonetheless, it's still a favorite as well as this bag I got from Urban Outfitters last year. I really need to invest in purses with a hinged-opening because it gives me the ability to overload obnoxiously large items (ie, shoes) through the mouth and still leaves no viewing obstructions when I'm rushing to find my car keys.

The perfect Saturday night was complete with debauchery of home-made mojitos at a friend's apartment, greasy delivered pizza, botched-up red velvet cupcakes, and my first time playing LIFE on the board game. Our next project involves cooking over Monopoly.

  3. hi rachel, raych, raychull, whatever you wanna be called.

    i have to say, i love this look, a lot.
    it's more avant-garde and editorial-ish than most of your laid-back cali style, and it still does look young and cool!

    anyway, kudos to your blog, you're a fantastic person to watch for.

    xos, j.yo

    Rachel, Rachel!- :)

    You've even the knack/ability to creatively take the "bard, Billy", and one of his signature expressions --- and transform & turn it into an edgy-hip creation, all your own, babe! :)

    And as in my last lil' poem inspired by you, Sweetheart; you appear to "universally shine through," as you seem to possess an inate awareness of what would seem should be "the cardinal, prevailing rule," --- "sine qua non," if you will, of any truly dynamic & impressive stylish statement.

    Jus' "how truly comfortable & at ease does one's apparel/garb " really render her/him; and, is it truly reflective of, exceptionally complementary to, or an extension of one's own natural & "inner beauty," allowing one to ultimately, consummately, feel "truly incredibly comfortable (confident) in one's own skin?!"

    It would seem when thusly, truly creatively, imaginatively, & most masterfully done, lo & behold, some "form of art" is thus rendered, manifested!

    And Rachel, my Dear, you seem to amazingly, incredibly pull such off seemingly at will, "ever shining through," --- in practically whatever you do --- as you alchemically ever come forth as one "truly dynamically beautiful, 'most fine, refined, & golden'" of girls, Sweetheart! :)


  15. loooooooooooove that shirt!

  16. Maxi skirt + wedges= best combo ever. This outfit is pretty simple, but I think it's actually one my favorites that I've seen on you!

  20. You look so different in this outfit, for a moment I though you had put someone else's picture up. The outfit is brilliant, the red lips and full length skirt is so chic!!

  21. Those Vera Wang wedges are really nice in white. I included the black version in a post about lovely wedges I wish I could afford, but I reckon the white ones are that little bit nicer.
    Your sunglasses are nice too, they add a girly aspect to the outfit.

  22. You are amazing in these pics!!! Nice red lipstick!!

  33. monopoly makes me so. angry. haha. i really enjoy this combination. it's not too often you see a semi-baggy shirt paired with a floor-length skirt AND wedges. it's pleasantly surprising and i rather like it.

  34. Your hair is getting long!
    I love how you styled the long skirt. I'm always looking for inspiration because it's such a hit-or-miss item.
