Very recently I ended up with two different pieces by Elizabeth and James of Olsen infamy at ridiculously good prices. I’m talking about both under $20. My first top, is a nice shade of bright yellow but I think I was too anxious to wear it out as soon as I got it that I couldn’t put more thought into how I wore it. This is what turned out.
Shirt: H&M. Top: Elizabeth and James from Neiman Marcus Last Call. Denim: Miss Sixty from Buffalo Exchange. Sandals: MIA from Nordstrom Rack
I tried to find some of the original photos to see how it was styled originally, but I couldn’t. All I could get were some ebay photos. So I’m anxious to wear this out again in another manner.
What I don’t get though is how big this top is (straps were falling all day) and it’s an XS?!
The internet and I have had a weird relationship as of late. Theres a fine line between love and hate, and the internet blurs it so bad that I found myself not being able to see clearly anymore.
Let me explain.
I like many of you found myself clouded in a life of gossip blogs, my every morning check to see who did what, whos doing whom, blah blah blah. Before I left to my trip, I made myself a resolution to stop looking at these types of blogs cold turkey one night. And I haven’t. That morning after the decision, I also told myself no gossip magazines. They’re all over work, so it’s hard as well. But I manage now, finding other things to read during breaks and lunch. I found myself so caught up in this crap that it was really interfering with my life I think. Why did I need to know all this information? And I kept excusing it with things like “oh well Michael K on the Dlisted is so funny” which he really is, but its the celebrity gossip that I can’t handle anymore. I can’t figure out why we all became so obsessed with this crap. So I gave myself the steps to remove my life and mind from online content like this in order to be able to remove myself from it almost completely. This is no longer a relationship the internet and I have.
That, along with subscribing to RSS feeds has significantly cut down my internet time.
Which leads me to look forward to some posts of some off kilter blogs that I have been following as of late.
All having their own niche I think, with great pictures and/or great written content. Something substantial for me to feast on in the mornings or evenings. I haven’t given up on you yet internet.
I‘ve been beyond exhausted, so excuse the missing post and today’s tardy post. But as you can see, I’ve finally dyed my hair again. This time all one color (even though I got so many interesting comments about the gradient in my hair color), glad to be done with blonde. I’m keeping the bob though, I’m liking the Cleopatra vibe it has now.
Anyway, whilst browsing at Buffalo Exchange, my official favorite store now, I had promised myself to only look but came across this James Perse exaggerated tee for $11 that reminded me of this MK Olsen shoot for Elle and how everyone was making a big deal over the shirt she was wearing. I really liked the slouchiness of the shirt, realizing that it probably fits her like that because of her petite stature. But the James Perse shirt I found did the same thing, the armholes were moved very low and the waist is slightly fitted. Plus it’s grey. Next time I won’t wear it with such weird pants (I was going to work), but maybe try it like her – with shorts, a vest, and some serious shoes.
