apologies for my absence. my photographer has just returned from a trip abroad. i now have decent photos again. in return for your patience, i give you this super long post. or you can just look at the pictures and move on.
temperatures dropped last night. finally able to wear full pants and a shirt without creating my own puddle. k, that's gross.
these are some of my new purchases. summer is almost over and it feels like all my buying was supposed to be summer oriented. good thing i can carry all this into fall. busy week and weekend ahead. i got the job i applied for, so i'm hoping it all pans out as i expect it to. a girl's gotta eat, after all.
oh, and if you were thinking of going to see dinner for schmucks?
it's a complete wash. and a terrible knock off of the original
. much like these, eh?
shirt: something italian...
jeans: earnest sewn harlan (FINALLY. they fit like a dream. i was unwilling/unable to pay $100+ for them.)
shoes: henry beguelin (!!!!!!!!)
bag: jas mb
belt: jimmy'z (manhattan mall; not sure if this is a national store or some random nyc brand)
i can carry all these things into fall. loving these shoes. went online looking for a pair of minnetonkas yesterday and realized i probably ought not purchase the brown since i've got moc-type shoes already. also of note, i went hunting for shearling about a year and a half ago as i really wanted the warmth and style of a leather jacket for winter. now that shearling is de rigeur....
i will have to deal with price points like these. this seems to happen a lot. i get obsessed with something and then it shows up on a runway and the prices inflate beyond my means. this happened with clogs, that maxi skirt/dress phase, boyfriend jeans...maybe i'm a fashion psychic.
yeah, not helpful.
damn you to hell, burberry. well, actually i love you. will you go on (mad, stupid, crazy) clearance so i can buy you?
here's that top i mentioned. took koko's advice to try new bottoms with it:
OH, i also took out my first student loan ever in life. i'm sort of mortified. i was fortunate enough to have my school fees all paid in full as an undergrad (i love scholarships). it's a bit harder in my position now as i'm not fresh out of high school and i'm taking post-grad classes at an undergrad level. it's all quite confusing, but with the loans i plan on taking out, i expect this to be my future:
higher education, here i come. fuck.
