5head





lol...it's so shiny.
these are my brother's trousers. i'm currently stuck in the midst of my cleaning process. have a lot of items i still am worried to part with. slacks and suits and skirts, all business, but i've no job and will not be needing these items for some time. should i toss them or keep them? these trousers are my brother's. i rarely wear trousers like this casually, so decided to take them for a spin with my new shoes, a fitted sweater, and my orange leather. i think it looked better in my head, but i definitely like it. i think for me, it's an easier style and fit than wearing my trousers more traditionally with pumps or a flat shoe and button down. i think an important part of style is incorporating it realistically into your own life and still looking comfortable in it, rather than forced or awkward. okay, my rant is random. the only detail shot:


these have changed my mind about minnetonkas. still need a pair of converse dangit.

jacket: pretty face
shirt: three dots
pants: little brother's
belt: linea pelle
shoes: minnetonka
bag: furla

watching happily ever after with charlotte gainsbourg. i think i quite like ms. gainsbourg. pretty awesome. watching her in a camel coat and a pair of wide leg trousers. totally gonna influence monday's outfit. on a french/ballet/foreign movie kick at the moment. i think i want out of this time zone.

maybe here?

girl you have been killing it lately with your outfits!

i say keep the pants, you never know when you might need them. unless they don't fit all that well.

I say keep them, they may come in handy once you graduate and may have to go on interviews.

-ps. How wonderful is the music store scene? If only...

that orange really looks good on you. you should dress as a pumpkin for haloween! sorry, couldn't help myself ;)

and the pants, wow! I'd never guess they were your brother's.

I like that jacket! These trousers would look great with Converse.
Keep some of the business clothes. You'll need them and if they fit no need to give them away and then have to buy some later.

@koko:
HA! Thanks so much! They fit awesome; I prefer this to the skin-tight-over-your-ass pants that are passing for 'work appropriate' these days. guess i'll keep 'em.

@pret:
that scene is amazing. my boy was completely confused by the ending. 'HOW LONG IS THIS ELEVATOR RIDE?!?'
it's my second time watching and i love it more.

@duckalicious:
alas, i didn't do anything for halloween, but i do realize i have a newfound penchant for orange. and yes, my brother has definitely come in handy. i think i need to raid his closet for more shirts.

@aissa:
really eager to get some converse! they seem to go with just about everything. i will hang onto my clothes. i just need to find some elegant means of storage. any suggestions? anyone???

@sing:
THANKS!

@innyvinny:
innyvinny has spoken. so shall it be.
so, when is the scrabble match, yo?
