I know, this is totally retro, right? This Claudia Grau vintage jacket was given to me by wonderful co-worker who recalls wearing it during a photo shoot she worked on with Stephanie Seymour. Loving the vibrant colors.  My purple suede Via Spiga boots were a treasured find during my first venture to Nordstrom Rack. I went right before Christmas and stood in a huge line just to get these boots. I remember when I finally got to the register, the sales guy said to me, “You stood in this whole line and all you’re getting is a pair of boots?!” My reply was, “Hey, these are $70 down from over $300… worth the wait!”

The other day, I was watching Zac Effron interview Matthew Perry to promote 17 Again, and Effron asked the question, “If you had the chance, would you rather re-live the past or get a glimpse into the future?” I thought it was interesting, and would agree with Perry in saying I’d relive the past because what if the future really sucks or it’s not how you wanted things to turn out. There are just certain amazing moments and memories that I’ll only experience once with people who are no longer in my life, and I’d love to re-live them again. Oh, to be 17 again…

Go Ahead, Make My Day

Randomly found this AA vintage t-shirt this past weekend while browsing in the men’s section. I’m swimming in it because it’s an XL. Surprisingly AA carries some cool vintage t-shirts and a few other choice pieces in-store.  Also wore my new Dolce Vita Phoenix sandals for the first time and they are so comfy. Really love them. As soon as I saw the fringe on this suede Hurley vest, I was hooked. Go ahead, make my (Mon.) day.

Fallback (down the steps) Outfit

This is my go-to outfit when trying to figure out how I’ll dress for the day, which is taxing since I usually can’t find the things that I actually want to wear when pressed for time. Gone are the days when I’d pick out my outfits the night before so I could sleep longer in the mornings. These days it’s faux leather jacket, skinny jeans and booties… Dunzo. Simple and Easy? For sure. And I still like to think I look mildly put together.

Sidenote, my friend Lyndsey makes her own cute stationery, and is doing a fun giveaway on her blog, The Stationery Place.  Check it out and you could win!  I mean, who doesn’t like to receive a nice card in the mail these days?

Second black jumpsuit that I’ve recently purchased. Granted, I have major baggage in the crotch area, but loved the sweetheart neckline. Sold.

Simple and easy throw-on outfit.  BTW,  just saw I Love You, Man, and it’s probably the funniest movie I’ve ever seen. See you Christian S-Later.  I’m so lame.
