When boredom starts to set in, sometimes I imagine that I know how to do fashion sketching.  I don’t, but any excuse to use a rather large set of Prismacolor markers is a good one.  I call this “Self Portrait in the Tree Tops.”  As you’ve probably guessed, I’m referring to those Bebes yet again.  I haven’t worn this outfit yet, but if it stays warm like it has been for the past few days, I just might…

To answer your questions, these actually fit a little larger than most shoes I have.  They’re an 8, and I’m usually an 8, but I could have taken half a size smaller.  And Ev…there is a bit of a learning curve because they don’t give while you’re walking like other shoes do.  I’m sure you wouldn’t fall over, but I had to walk around the house for a good 15 minutes to make sure I got in tune with the shoes.  LOL.


Dudeguy demanded that we go thrifting this morning.  I was reluctant (CRAZY, right?), but he insisted.  After he posed an argument along the lines of “…take you…more stuff…birthday…” I was happy to oblige.  I found a few new spots to go hunting and came out with some really good/cute/interesting stuff.

Now, if any of you are in the Los Angeles area, like J Brand jeans, and wear a size 25 or 32, please head down to The Society of St. Vincent de Paul’s on 21st Avenue and have at it.  They’re going for $8 a pair and everything in stock is one of those two sizes.  I figured it would be more productive to share info than be riddled with angst and disappointment.  You’re welcome.   =P

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

    I actually think that’s such a great sketch. When I try doing sketches of people I end up with stick figures haha. I doubt I’d come anywhere near what you did if I tried a fashion sketch.

    Oh and I can’t wait to see what you bought on your thrift day.:D
