These shoes would be a good replacement for my near dead and much beloved Roberto del Carlos.

i feel like me again

Finally, I post pictures of some of my latest outfits and more. You know... I look forward to outfit posts from my favorite bloggers the most. Then, I allow myself to slack off. I think I'm allowed to once in awhile.

I wore this on 5/16. The jeans, top, and shoes are new. All I want to wear are the jeans and shoes everyday. I'll just rotate the tops. If only the weather would allow me to wear this sweater everyday, too.

I wore this on 5/19. The dress is too long and I keep meaning to have it shortened but I think it works with a skirt underneath (this time).

Porridge dress, Gap skirt, Roberto del Carlo sandals, Urban Outfitters cuff, Iosselliani necklace

This is what I wore today. I debut my new haircut. I got my haircut about 4 weeks ago but HATED it. I don't know why but I allowed myself to endure it but sanity took over and I went back to get it fixed yesterday. Sergio was nice enough to fix my hair. I'm more than pleased. Lesson learned- if you don't like your cut, don't be shy to let the stylist know. They want to make you happy.

who is tracy feith?

Target's latest GO Collection somehow crept by without any attention from me. I was just browsing the Target site and was surprised by a collection by Tracy Feith. Where have I been? To be honest, I didn't even know who he was. I didn't even know he was a he.

I'm a little bit perplexed by the collection. For the most part, it's too bright and floral for my taste. If I had money to waste, I might pick up one or two of the solid dresses. Instead, I'd like to keep my money in the bank (until I pick up a Jas MB bag). In the meantime, I think I can handle getting this top. For some reason, I love it.

Tracy Feith For Target Number 8 Tee $14.99

P.S. I got my haircut today. It suits me perfectly and I LOVE it. That means, maybe I'll post an outfit again.

a handbag genius

In my opinion, Jas is a handbag genius. Don't be surprised if I pick up one of his bags from Barneys this summer. I'll be pissed if this one is snatched before I can get it.

Jas MB medium curve handle bag $425

P.S. I really HATE the haircut I got about 4 weeks ago. Hence, I'm not in the mood to post outfits. I'm thinking about going back to the salon tomorrow if I get the chance for a hair correction. My sanity needs it.

my two cents

The Knife is on constant play on my iPod. I love driving my new Mini Cooper Clubman. I'm going through some hard times. I can't wait until summer. That's all I have to say.

jeans i can sleep in

Yeah, I probably shouldn't have but when a deal like this comes by, you can't let it pass. Barneys had 40% off women's denim for one day so I stopped by. I tried on a pair of PRPS. Though I still want a pair, these were a bit too distressed and just plain trying too hard... so I passed. I also tried on several pairs of Current/ Elliott. I came home with these two- the boyfriend and the super slouchy skinny. They are so amazingly soft and comfortable, they are worth buying at regular price. Oh... and having to go one and two sizes smaller than my usual size definitely helps the self-esteem.

if you haven't had enough of alexander wang

He's not going anywhere. If anything, he's lending his hand and name to Gap projects. The next CFDA/Vogue Fashion collaboration offers designs by Vena Cava and Alexander Wang for Gap. The entire collection consists of khakis. I'm not much for khakis but I have to admit I'm kind of excited. Expect to see them at your local Gap on June 16th.

tortured by the glamourai

My fellow Texan gone to New York City and reaching amazing heights (from what I can only guess and imagine), Glamourai, has chosen to torture me with her awaited Etsy store. She's shown her talent with her DIY sunglasses and bib necklaces and now offers us the opportunity to buy a piece. If I had some extra bucks, I would snag these. Maybe the Fashion Gods will prevent others from buying them, weeks will pass by, and I'll only be left to make one a guest in my home. Or the Fashion Gods will slap me awake,I'll just come to my senses, and get one now. I'm very tempted. We'll see...

jerome dreyfuss is hot

Hey Jerome,

You'd make me a very happy girl if I could have 1 (or 2 or 3 or all) of these bags/ wallets. Damn... your bags are the shit (seriously).

it's good to recycle

Do you remember when Barneys was collecting your old jeans and passing along a discount if you were kind enough to pitch in? They used some of those old jeans, a handful of amazing designers, Elle magazine, and developed a compilation of some great pieces. If you are interested, they are auctioning them on eBay here. They close on May 10th.

I'm in love with this Rogan dress.
