Daily Grind

(Shirt/leggings/necklace - H&M, fuzzy cardigan - Lost & Found Tokyo, JC for LF wedges)

This is what my brain produces at 5 AM when it's still pitch black outside and my boyfriend is still warm in our bed. I've been feeling really lazy lately, and reaching for anything buttoned down and/or black is what's easiest. Help! I'm in a slump and I can't get up!

P.S. I've started a Tumblr due to the influx of photos ever since the new lens..I'm obsessed.

C'est Moi!?

As soon as I spied these on Knight Cat yesterday, I knew I had to have them! I've been dying for a pair of gray wedges forever, and now here they are! Thanks, Jeffrey Campbell (and Cat!) :-D

In a few minutes my boyfriend and I are leaving for the MOMA to see the Tim Burton exhibit! I'm wearing my cloud tights from Japan today, the ones that make me think of the Stella McCartney '09 capsule collection/collabo with Sir Peter Blake. I wanted something, anything from the Island collection sooo badly..

If you can't handle the heat, get out of the (kitschen)!

(Top/leggings/skirt - H&M, fuzzy cardigan - Lost & Found in Tokyo, necklace - vintage, bag - vintage from Tokyo, boots - Alice + Olivia for Payless)

This cardigan is one of my most favorite items I purchased in Japan - it's fuzzy and cozy but also lightweight and lined with satin. Even better? It was on sale for 1500 yen! (Roughly $15)

One of my biggest pet peeves about winter is the fact that I am getting to work when the sun is just rising, and leaving when the sun has already set. After work, I barely leave the apartment and end up going to bed waay earlier than usual - hellooo, winter blues!

What's Old is New..

(Silk tunic - Forevs)

I've been trying to purge my wardrobe ever since returning home...I currently have about 3.5 garbage bags filled with things I can live without. I love it!

However, sometimes I come across things I haven't worn in so long that they somehow become new again - like this Forever 21 silk tunic, for instance. I wore this years ago for Halloween (Miss Piggy!) the proper way, deep v in the front. Looking at it today, I thought - why not turn it around?

Experiments such as this really make me double think buying new items on a weekly basis - who knows what other treasures I have buried in the depths other piles of clothes?

My Saturday night consisted of avoiding going outside at all costs, making Dirt in a Cup, cupcakes, and watching nonsense YouTube videos.


Oh, JT <3

Velvet, crushed - not stirred.

(blouse/bow headband - H&M, velvet blazer/velvet pants - Vintage, wedges - JC for LF)

My boyfriend and I decided to wander the city yesterday as tourists, enjoying the lessened crowds and darkened stores. The fact that I made it through 7 hours without one complaint about aching feet is testament to how insanely comfortable these wedges are!

I think my bf looked pretty fly <3

Also, I paid $1 to get a picture taken with my alter ego....the Cookie Monster! Even though he's a supposed 'vegetarian' now, I believe in my heart of all hearts that he has a secret stash of cookies hidden somewhere...

Sugar addicts 4 lyfe.

A name with no face...

(Silk shirt - vintage, Faux fur coat/skirt/beaded cardigan - H&M, necklace - Hanjiro in Harajuku, JC for LF wedges)

Wednesday night was my unofficial 'Welcome back!' night, seeing as the official was supposed to be NYE. This did not turn out to be the case, but that is another story...

Today's plans include: wandering around the (hopefully) deserted streets of the city, taking touristy pictures, drinking in the Christmas decorations before they are taken down, drinking in some amazing hot chocolate, and then re-creating the NYE that never came to be...

<3 Happy 2010! <3
