Glamour and Grunge


Presenting my new Marc by Marc Jacobs bag and a bit of a grunge glam feel. Adrienne and I were out and about in San Francisco one night, and stopped in a random SOMA alley for a spontaneous shoot. I am happy that the pictures came out well, and I'm definitely happy I made it out of this shoot without becoming some kind of Law and Order episode. (DUN DUN!)

Dress: All Saints
Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell Cat Tapestry Damsel

Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs

Topshop at Nordstrom

Its been weeks since I have posted, and I am sorry about that! For the last week I've been sick with some sort of bubonic-like virus. You would think that this would mean I would have been on top of blogging the 5+ looks that I've done in the last month, but really I just cuddled with my cat and re-watched every episode of Daria on Hulu Plus (She is by far my favorite fictitious feminist). Despite my absence my wardrobe seems to keep growing. I am seriously obsessed with my new digs from Topshop x Nordstrom. Here I am wearing one of their shirts and a vintage-esque skirt. I have never tried out a pencil skirt because I never trusted how it would look on my petite frame, but luckily it works well! I really love the midi length too, which is also something that I am not used to. I also present my AMAZING new sunglasses, the Tom Ford Carrie in green horn. Thanks to this fab bday gift from my boyfriend, I am officially the coolest person ever. Ok, that may be a bit of a stretch, but how damn good are these shades?! What pieces are new in your wardrobe? 

This outfit:
Shirt: Topshop
Skirt: Topshop
Shoes: Sam Edelman
Sunglasses: Tom Ford Carrie

Crochet Lunch Date

A year ago, when I first started blogging, taking photos was much more of a production. I would wear things that were cool and unique, but they were not necessarily functional. Lately I have realized that day-to-day fashion is all about function--why blog something you didn't actually wear on any given day? Here is a look Adrienne and I took on one of our (almost daily) lunch dates. I am actually wearing a sleep shirt over a slip as a dress. To top it off I added a belt, some cute metallic sandals with a mini-heel, and of course my standard accessories. Overall I think its funky and not generic, but still comfortable. This look definitely reflects my daily (day-off) style. 

This outfit:
Shirt (worn as a dress): Free People 
Belt: H&M
Sandals: Sam Edelman Trina
Bag: Coach (vintage)
Sunglasses: Christian Dior (vintage)

Rhyming and Styling

Just a quickie post today before I am off to work! As you can see I got my hurrr (hair) did on Saturday, and I am totally digging my new style. Its nothing drastic, but definitely needed to cut off the unhealthy ends, and give my hair an overall style. I am sooo pleased--my fave part is the blunt bang, obviously! Aside from that, not much else is new, except the fact that my stylist job with Nordstrom starts today. Eeeeek wish me luck!

Pants: Forever 21
