i've been busy. general housekeepings, running of errands, online-searching of vacation homes for summer vacation fastly approaching.
you know, the usual.
looking forward to next month.
going to see THE CURE in chicago.
it's quite difficult to express excitement through text without coming off completely ignorant and air-headed [i've been waiting 10+years] so i'll keep it at that.
i did, however, purchase a new dress. it's red. i hate myself in red. hopeful that this dress will change my perception of myself in the repulsed clothing color.
excited for its arrival.
much interest in the such, at least, no more than a common one.
i was too busy drooling over actual clothing that i never paid much hommage to shoes.
found a pair i liked + fit
will go with anything
...being, my overly-loved-and-now-ready-to-be-thrown-into-a-dumpster black leather pointed flats.
i know, how boring.
so now i drool over shoes as well.
now i have something else to keep me on a hunt....to throw away any spare money on.
speaking of money,
ebay is wonderful for shopping.
ebay is wonderful for shoe-shopping.
ebay is wonderful for impulse-buying, buyer's regret, and thus having no money left at all.
lovely night-morning to you all.
the title says it all.
thought i would share with you some pieces i fought for on ebay....and lost.
i hope to find similar replacements.
jill stuart black satin dress
i can just imagine the outfits i could produce having all these items tucked safely in my closet...
and, the best/worst thing about vintage is that pieces are one of a kind.
if you have it, it's original, and it's yours.
if you don't have it, you'll never find it again.
and, the jill stuart dresses -- two of the prettiest JS dresses i've ever seen listed on ebay without
steep buy-it-nows, and to think, they both ended under $70.
my favorite of my lost items is the silver pleated dress [photo 2].
it's insanely cute, ultra-feminine, and has a flapper look to it.
it's also very versatile.
could have been worn in every season.
lovely fun weekend to you all.
surprise birthday-party for friend.
first picture is me petting my girlfriend's cat, nemo.
i've threatened to steal him several times now.
second picture is trinity, myself, and danelle [owner of cat].
the surprise party was for her husband.
i'm an amazon in heels.
also wearing a gray pleated skirt, vintage gray and white pinstriped little boy blazer [adorned with a couple of my music buttons], black ribbed tights, black ankle boots, and a beige knit hat.
this is going to be a brief.
i was just thinking that i should post an abbreviated makeshift version of my current wishlist.
it's fun knowing what other people want.
what they're coveting.
things for which they've been searching for years.
highly abbreviated, remember.
. feather hat, preferably bright teal/turquoise
. high-waisted short skirts
. high-waisted cuffed/pleated shorts
. lace-up black gladiator boots
. straw trilby hat
. black wellies
. sheer tights
. tulip skirts
. american apparel deep-v t-shirts
. vintage leather satchel/cargo purse in a camel color
. new or vintage frilly [but classic] blouses
. avant-garde structured pieces
. large pop-art novelty-printed pieces
. vintage band t-shirts, as always [i stay away from black ones. too common.]
. modern structured platform wedges
. givenchy shoes
. tsumori chisato satin multi hooded jacket [haven't been able to find one of these in a very long time......sigh]
and that's just clothing.
you don't even want to peek at my music wishlist.
REALLY FUCKING LOOOOONG>>
eh. i'll most likely end up posting a small snippet of it, too.
at some point.
i also have a toy wishlist
and a wishlist for my son.........
goodnight, goodnight, good morning.
6.19 pm. omd. souvenir.
still sick. but feeling better with each day that passes.
DIE, please. all of you. thankyou.
i have more to post.
however i'm feeling a bit snackish.
actually, snackish isn't the correct term.
stomach grumblies and all.
it's late.........midnight to be exact. i think i'll opt for a warm bowl of oatmeal,
topped with fresh bananas. sprinkling of brown sugar. yumm.
speaking of food, i'll be posting more recipes.
i'm just as obsessed with food as i am with clothes.
i have A LOT of clothing.
but i have more recipes.
it's amazing that i stay slender enough to fit into half my clothing. i loved baked goods.
i would kill for a fresh bluberry scone right now.
exceptionally lovely night to you all.
i've been in love with broadcast since.
steamed zucchini and squash.
dress, shareen vintage via ebay, $250
i haven't received it yet. expecting it later this week. not sure what i'm going to do with it. i need to find somewhere to wear it. or perhaps i'll just save it to get married in. i've always liked the idea of having a very non-traditional, simple, elegant, outside wedding. besides, it could look quite classic with a simple updo and simple diamond necklace + earrings. and the right shoes.
in spring or autumn.
i love flowers, but i also love the turning of leaves.
and october has to be my absolute favorite month.
perfect weather, and my favorite holiday.......halloween.
not in a horror-goth way, just in that it brings back happy childhood memories.
dressing up, scouting neighborhoods, collecting candy, getting home and spilling it out, organizing and counting it, then eating enough to make your stomach ache for days....
what fun is there not to be had there?
i've done quite a bit of impulse shopping on ebay recently. i'll post my latest buys in my next blog. all quite cheap, though. and anyone who knows me knows i'm the ultimate bargain shopper. i'm quite good at finding awesome pieces very, very cheap.
except for that dress, of course.
shhhhhh. that was a one-time thing.
nerd glasses. don't be afraid of them.
made me very happy to see so much color.
oh, pretty things i'll never afford...
look! i'm an american apparel ad waiting to happen.
ok, so what.
i love love love my black lame leggings. they look like liquid rubber and look good with everything.
and i practically live in my salt + pepper fleece hoodie.
i've had both for a long time.
i recommend both.
permanent wardrobe staples.
go get yours now.
they can still be pulled off well through spring, even cool summer nights.
the leggings, that is.
and who doesn't want a comfy, cuddly, security-blanket-garment that goes on or comes off with the mere push or pull of a zipper?
the hood is a plus.
i love hoods.
it's been raining most of the day. well into evening now.
contemplating purchasing a pair of cheap 3D glasses-
perhaps not, no?
potato sandwich for late-lunch.
make your own.
quartered red potatoes, drizzled with olive oil, sprinkled with thyme. roast until browned + crispy on edges.
two slices of your preferred sliced bread. i recommend oatmeal. toast.
two slices provolone.
fresh baby spinach, washed, drained.
plain yellow mustard.
slice of bread
slice of provolone
baby spinach [as much as you can pile on]
slice of provolone
yellow mustard, be generous
slice of bread
=smoosh. halve w/knife. eat. yummm.
fyi. not a vegetarian.....however, i do love a good vegetarian meal. i also love meat.
onward to the talk of fashion and such:
whilst browsing through my local favorite bookstore, coffee in hand, i noticed this little gem on the racks.
i was instantly intrigued by the miss on the cover, rabbit figurine in hand.
[i have quite a kin liking to rabbits.]
i do so enjoy this mag. interesting reads, colorful photographs at which to look.
my sole complaint- was not long enough. seemed to have ended a bit too soon.
do pick up, though.
they even have a website. you can browse the entire mag page-by-page on it.
anywho. tonight is a rare night. i just might sleep.
lovely night to you. dream safe.
eat your oatmeal. wear black tights.
