"It started when I was younger- you were mine, my BLUE jeans..."

Orange T-shirt.
Dark, bleached navy jeans.
That yellow-striped, thin shirt.
Tank top with beaded ribbons. 


Like with a song or a love note, I feel sentimentally attached to certain articles of clothing. 

Usher and Alicia Keys' "My Boo" ? Takes me back to Spring 2005. 
(Don't ask for details.) 

My orange, cotton T-shirt?  Summer 2004.
It's been 7-years, T-shirt. Seven.
Seven years ago... when I still believed in Santa Claus.
No, not really...

But it's still time to go--
I'll just keep the memories:
Of beach volleyball at Ocean City, that boy, that picnic, that mustard stain, trip to LA, that BBQ on the deck at 9PM...

I've managed to toss out another 3-4 trash bags worth of clothes this time.
Three months ago, I tossed out another 5-6 bags. 

Hoorah, for me!

I feel relief.


I am so relieved.

Foreign Film Friday: Coco Avant Chanel






















The Chanel as we know it today, didn't come about after years in fashion school, or from many struts on the catwalk-- it came out of one woman's desperation, ambition and simply... luck.
And she was just good -- at seeing how "less is more" on women, and good with using her resources.

If only the rest of us can strike some luck with an English businessman to help us out once in a while, no? ;)

Sew me the money

Entertaining, pleasing eye candy NY Fashion Week brings to publications, blogs, etc.

My fave:
Derek Lam's fall 2011 collection

The end.

If I went on a safari...

Or lived in the jungle with my Tarzan, I would wear these:

Appropriately named.
Is this in style in 2011?  
Not a big khaki girl, but if I were cast in Jumanji 2...
I'd dig it. 


Zebras are pretty animals. Elegant. 
So I'd wear this. 

I've been seeing a lot of these "anorak" jackets.
The jungle gets a lot of rain doesn't it? This would be perfect--
Except this is silk- can I still get wet?
Now, I just need a hat...

Delux Knitwits 'Cable Dog' Pilot Hat (Girls)
Hm, don't think this is waterproof- 
Or safari/jungle-like, but I just like this.
Moving forward...

Now if I ever wanted to go Angelina-Jolie in the jungle...
Or on a safari...
This outfit would be perfect.
Just get me a shooting device.
I would need a weapon...
because I will not be able to do a windmill kick in this. 

In this...
I could do my windmills, somersaults, and
Also wail and flail my arms,
as I wait for Tarzan to save me.


I see a lot of zebra print for Spring 2011.
This means I'm going on lots of safari's in the next few months.

I could do this--
this is doable.
One with nature. 

If an angel ever needed to come down into the jungle...
or save me from a treacherous safari situation--
I expect her to be wearing this. 
(Yes, I see the 'silk' trend here...)

These will help during the soggy days in the jungle-
won't have to worry about my pants cuffs getting wet.
I knew this style would be in/come back! 

I could probably command-o my own safari troupe in this.
I'd put a walkie-talkie in the left pocket,
And one hand in the right pocket with a Swiss-army pocket knife.
The other hand is holding up a peace sign, of course. 
V.



I'm ready to go on some safari's this Spring 2011-
I have an adventure book to fill.

Tell me the truth

Is the "truth" always just an interpretation?




I only know of one truth in the whole wide world. 


Happy 1.11.11.
