i'm trying something new for a few days - attempting to look at the camera. i have to use the photos for something else as well - something very exciting that i'll talk about more later - and i think they want to see my face, which i hate, but am trying to oblige.
this is a collection of pieces that i saw and wanted. badly. but couldn't justify the cost of, so i kept stalking them (in the case of the shirt and the skirt, i actually kept returning to the stores to try them on and see if they had decreased at all in price, in the case of the boots by googling them repeatedly) until i finally managed to convince myself that they were "affordable." and here they are, all in one coincidental outfit. the skirt i absolutely loved in the store but never really found a good shirt to pair it with, so it's hung basically unworn in my closet for the last few months - until miss emma pillsbury has been wearing it (in two different colors!) on glee lately and i decided i had to pull it back out.
skirt: j crew
boots: irregular choice
socks: american apparel
necklace: my mom
the blouse is so lovely, with the multi-layered color and the little silk details on the sleeves; and the boots i drooled over on urban outfitter's website, only to have them go on sale when i was dead broke; they disappeared in my size and my tiny-footed friend erika got a pair and started wearing them, making me want them that much more. months later, they reappeared, and i snatched them up. so here they are.
sunday night post-falafel movie time. catch you later -
