standing on mushy ground

utility jacket: forever21, sheer pocket t & jeans : Express, boots:Marc by Marc Jacobs , vintage floral embroidered wallet, scarf:Wal-mart, ray-b's polarized aviators
After almost ruining my fav boots in the muddy yard and failed attempt to find a nice scene around the house ...the sun left, so this is the only decent shot.
Digging this utility jacket found @ Forever 21 on sale for about $15. Its made of cotton and so comfortable and really versatile. I must confess that this has been my outfit variation almost all week, so it was only honest to post it; jeans, t, boots scarf, this jacket...no kidding. Managed to switch it up by substituting a poufy floral print skirt for a movie outing to see the Book of Eli on Friday night. Enjoyed the movie although to be a movie about religion and doing good...it did seem a bit "heavy handed."

Have a great week everyone!


shades of gray

fur coat & clutch: thrifted, dress & ankle boots: Asos, necklace: ma's jewelry box
For some reason I was completely over the whole maxi dress this past summer and the few I own hung in my closet the whole season without notice. My attitude quickly changed after seeing this post on Brook&Lyn a while back. Immediately sought after a similar one in my price range and lucked up in early December on Asos... have worn it at least three times since. Sooo comfortable and easy. Asos is such a great site...and that's all I have to say about that.
Two posts within a week, I'm back on a roll haha. Most definitely hope to get one more in by Tuesday in order to show my latest vintage find, a $20 white rabbit fur coat. (Note: Would never consider buying anything made of new fur, only secondhand. This is why no matter how bad I wanted them, the BCBG Mendel PONYHAIR boot-wedges had to stay at the store.)
No more color related post titles for a while...promise.
My dear friend of years, Ross, just started a new blog of his interior designs, check it out here!

some things captured over the weekend that just so happen to be gray...
A wild crane hung out by our pond looking for lunch..I've seen white ones as well during the summer

Hello to my faithful few readers and 55 followers, and a special shout out to Becs, who always checks on me! I'm alive and well but its obvious that I am a sorry excuse for a blogger. Nothing SUPER special about this outfit. I did consider wearing a more "matchy" scarf at first, but I think the bright yellow gives it a bit of oomph. I've actually donned a few creative ones during my abscence...it's just once I get off from the school, 75% of the time I go straight to my mom's business and put in a couple of hours "volunteer work" haha. Therefore, once I get home its dark and I'm exhauted...so no posting. Monday is a school holiday, so I hope to get another post in and put up a bunch of stuff on Ebay including, the vintage DVF vest worn here back in the summer, some random AA items, a couple fur jackets/coats, and the most amazing leather motorcycle vest I could have ever won on Ebay, sadly its a smidge too big for my small chest.
Happy 2010 by the way! I plan to make this the year of change for myself. I've already gotten rid of all the negative people and associates with alterior motives in my life and I hope to move out on my own once again. I've been in my hometown 2 years too long and it's time to move on.
I've been reading The Fashion Book over last week and although it can be quite boring at times, its very informative. I didn't know certain things about these well known designers. Below it is pictured open to show how every designer from Hermes to Hilfiger are in this book in alphabetical order. Really want the coffee table version, but sadly the recession is killing me, seriously.

Living back at home with the rents has its perks of course, so when I do get out on my own again I'll be sure to miss the great walk-in closet that is in my room. The purpose of the photo is to show you all a BEFORE shot. Monday being Dr. King day, school is out, and I plan on organizing this depressingly messy area (notice I was too ashamed to post a full shot since heaps of clothing cover the floor @ each end).
