Ok, so let me keep my style crush (Erin Wasson) and I'll quietly and with pure defeat admit to myself that I am not of her caliber; not body type-not cool factor-not tall and model-y.
And that's that.
So now that I know I can not emulate her very well, just leave me be--let me have some of my more modest v-neck slouchy tops, let me make some spur of the moment cut-offs at 1:30am on a Friday night (see below), and let me wear lots of necklaces that don't really go together. And I'll be ever-so happy w/myself.
*Gray slouchy tshirt,Uniqlo
*DIY cut-offs, Gap
*Black platform sandals, Topshop
*Various necklaces, Thrift store/H&M/My own creation
(I also think I might've had the auto focus thing messed up on my camera. Huh what? I probably hit it with my finger and it slid to manual--to which I cannot even begin to fathom how that needs to operate. So sorry about these not so crisp photos)
By now, if you made it this far down, you're probably thinking, "WTF? Where's the Weekend Rewind...I wanna know what you did this weekend...what your elixer of a cocktail choice was this weekend...and where's the token Weekend Rewind picture of Mel?". Yeah, this is NOT going to be one of those fun Weekend Rewinds; my weekend was too tame for that. One of the best parts of my weekend (besides the play I saw w/Mel) was the fact that I unlocked the "Brooklyn 4 Life" badge on Foursquare. Hell yeah MotherF&%$ers! Now you can clearly see why there's no Weekend Rewind.
Mainly, I just went shopping...A LOT. So much so that I have to be honest with myself and admit that I am not going to wear the pleated tapered leg trousers I purchased at Topshop on Friday. No no....and if I take them back, I can more than justify my other purchases.
I did "splurge" on Friday, within 45min at Topshop I was slapping down $$$$ like it was my job. While they were having a HUGE sale (to which I scored these shoes above at a pretty insane good price--especially since I think i can walk miles in them they're really pretty comfortable--uh oh Jessica Simpson, sky high shoes-comfortable-and they're not yours! Look out...because we all know I usually swear by the comfort of J.Simpson shoes.)
Ok, so yeah, let me take back those trousers, then I can make myself feel better about buying that beige blazer with the scrunched up sleeves, the shoes, the slouchy stuff from Uniqlo (oh and I got yet another skinny jean--duh I was in Uniqlo, and they were on sale....we all know I love my Uniqlo skinnies).
And nevermind the 2 dresses and 1 blouse I bought at Beacon's Closet when I went to P.slope to visit Mel. I had a store voucher, so it was no cash out of my pocketbook--do love that place!
Then Sunday rolls around and I suppose I still didn't have enough material items in my possession. I found myself attempting to spend wholesome time in the park watching a baseball game. (hence the boring outfit, I'm even wearing flats!) Then a quick shower rolled thru town and I ran for cover...oh wow, how'd I end up taking shelter at Buffalo Exchange? Hmmmm, peculiar isn't it? No not really peculiar, very much something I'd do. And then I walked outta that place with two really cute vintage dresses! woot woot.
I'm going to try to wear all my new items within the next two weeks...because sometimes I just buy things to shop (I probably have some underlying pathetic issue going on inside that I try to supress and ignore with shopping; so far I don't know what the issue is--I'm just not surprised if its there.) and I find them hanging lifelessly in my closet months later having never been worn :( (and then I start to feel REALLY guilty for throwing down $$$ right and left.)
*Green tank, Target
*Same DIY cut-offs I made for myself on Friday night
*Bronze studded sandals, Kmart
(what? I went in there for cleaning supplies, and just saw them as I stolled to the escalator. Impulse buy for sure considering I don't really do flat heels and who wears stuff from Kmart??) I do apparently because as I typed that I realize I'm wearing a pair of slippers from there)
So here's to hoping your weekends were fun, relaxing, and a good time. Mine was just dandy, now its back to the Monday-Friday...grrrr. Nite-nite!
