we got a minefield of crippled affection

October 25, 2010

Quiksilver trench. La Rok shirt. Vintage jewelry and skirt. Rebecca Minkoff purse. Seychelles boots.

I suddenly noticed that I own lot of military green, because almost every day I've been inadvertently wearing something of that shade... from forgotten, lack-luster items (like this jacket) to new ones I cradle and insist to wear every day. Another new cradle-worthy piece is this new purse Rebecca Minkoff gifted me in the most gorgeous rich brown. For such a basic bag, I've gotten a handful of compliments on them - not really a common compliment since my apparent taste and investment in bags suck, so thank you again for the gorgeous bag!

Other than refusing to study for midterms, getting caught in rain for an hour or two last night as Disneyland was probably the highlight of my month, except looking and feeling like a wet dog kinda sucks.

  46. nice outfit.!

  47. love your lace boots, the color is very nice

  48. I actually really love that trench! I've been looking for a casual hooded trench/rain jacket forever, and that totally fits the bill. Love your blog!


  49. Although I do agree with your post, I have my own reservations.

  50. this whole outfit is so cute. the pants look great on you!

  51. You could look like a wet dog and probably still be stylish and beautiful. No doubt xxx

  52. This is such a cool unique look - loving the skirt, the booties and the bag of course.

    I just found your blog and I love all yoru posts. Will surely be coming back.



  53. I love the gold jewelry you are wearing. Are these vintage pieces? The combination of drop earrings with statement ring is truly stunning! The layered bracelet look has been really popular in 2011. One way is to mix different metal types, and bracelet types like a few bangles alternating with a gemstone bracelet!
