Alright, new drink…

October 16, 2008

Today calls for a list of stuff that I like, really want, or plan to get.  There have been some…developments…over the past couple of days, so I want to share them with you all:

My next book:

Although I like to think of my own personal style as constantly evolving, I really like this book.  In Lucky Mag fashion, piece by piece they’ve broken down the 10 iconic styles (off memory, there’s Rocker, American Classic, Artistic, Ecclectic Posh, California, Bohemian, Gamine, Mod, and Bombshell).  What the key elements of each are, how to wear them, and features of the women who typify that style.  I got to browse through it today, and I want it in my library.

My next pair of shoes:

Like I need another pair (or maybe I did…), but these are so…cute!  You guys know (or not…LOL) that I’m a sucker for interesting details and ankle boots.  Besides, I found a coupon online for 25% off a UO purchase.  That’s enough to make me defy my no debt acquisition rule.  I’ll stop after these.  I promise!

My next dress (that will need tights underneath because it’s 30″ long…DAMN!):

It may not look like much in this picture, but it looks like this in real life.  Yes.  I have fallen for the exposed zipper trend and I’m not ashamed.  Especially since this is from F21.  SCORE!

Those are the big three for now.  I’ll leave you with today’s outfit and a view of the backyard that looks more like a chop shop/junkyard than a place to park cars.

Jacket: Jet Rag $1 Sale

Shirt: Vintage

Jeans: F21

Shoes: Urban Outfitters

Side note: Leanne won Project Runway and I called it from the beginning.   I knew it, I knew it, I knew it.  Now, be honest: who (not so) secretly laughed out loud when Kenley was eliminated first? I know I did!

My blog’s new home is up; you should go there.

    @ Monochromator – thank you. That made me blush. I am in love with your blog.

    @ S – I think I’ll take more back there. There’s a lot of shit, but it might look interesting.

    @ Stefania – grab them! They don’t have many sizes left on the site!

    @ taghrid – thank you! Sometime next week they shall be mine.

    @ muze – I’m glad you caught that reference. I wrote it with his voice in my head. LOL. And I didn’t notice the ANTM girls. I’ll pay attention next time it’s on.
