When in Doubt…

March 28, 2009

Since it was hot a hell today, I thought I’d take a cue from the late Aaliyah/the mid 90’s and wear this knit crop top with some extra baggy jeans (just trust that it’s a surprisingly cool outfit to wear in hot weather).  Since I don’t officially own a pair of extra baggy jeans, I did the next best thing and used dudeguy’s.

((thrifted shirt, dudeguy’s jeans, Bakers shoes))

Methinks it worked out well.  Some girl called me “brave” for wearing them without being Katie Holmes.  I really didn’t know what to make of that.  Um, thanks?  =P

I got to hang out with my two favorite ladies and gent today.  Mom, godmom, dudeguy and I went tearing around LA county stopping for Chinese food, groceries, and random bits of chaining from Michael’s.  I have no buiness in that store.  I could spend hours just looking at the yarn.  Seriously.

The first third of the Great Shoe Hoard of early 2009 arrived today; vintage Bruno Valenti wingtips in black and brown courtesy of the bane of my existence/drug of choice ebay.  I might have to wear these to bed because I seemed to have forgotten how narrow vintage shoes tend to be.

Agony.  Pure agony.  They’re very much worth the agony, but pure agony nonetheless.   I can’t wait until they’re properly broken in.  Can’t.Wait.

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

    Those shoes are hot; I love them.

    & I should take a cue from you, & start wearing Jonathan’s pants…

    You rock the pants WAY better than Katie Holmes did, and baggy = great for warm weather. I know what you mean about your shoes, I have a pair like that and they are NOT good for long distance walking X|
