she bang?

I can't believe that I haven't featured this coat on the ol blog yet, cause it's my fave. I wear it so much that the shoulder seam is busted (and, yes, I see the irony that the seamstress' clothing is falling apart...what can I say, the last thing I wanna do when I get home is sew some more!) I am glad I get to wear this coat still, but sad that it's cold enough to have to wear a jacket. boo.

so I've been pulling my bangs back and considering growing them out completely.... really important stuff, I know... any opinion? to bang or not to bang? big life decisions going on here!

golden toes.

I got this brilliant idea this morning to dye my bjorn sandals to make them more everyday rather than the weird pastel colors that they were! and I am very pleased with the results! I used a light brown leather stain (that looks sort of cordavan now, but I like it) In my extreme impatience I put the shoes on RIGHT after I dyed them and now my toes (heck, my whole feet) are a sort of golden brown color! haha. at least they match my awesome, thrifted, power suit jacket!

from this.....

to this!

... funny fact.... this pants are NOT capris! they are supposed to be full length on the average person (I am just a giant, woops)

tougher please.

I rarely gravitate to really girly garments, but for some reason I really like this light colored floral dress, I tried to toughen it up a bit (belt & boots), so I wouldn't feel totally out of my element, as I don't really think of myself as "girly" ( I probably have a higher opinion of my toughness than is merited, but we won't get into that whole self-image thing just now... we could be here a while)

It was beautiful and 80 degrees today! but crazy windy, which led to some rather revealing moments in my short dress.... woops. (super tough, right?)

my mom got me these awesome "chief" earrings for my birthday. please excuse the awkward face grimace, the wind was beating my face.

and I can't believe that I haven't yet introduced you to the new loves of my life... my new boots (and, yes, I am that shallow). Im obsessed, I've barely taken them off since I got them ( I actually couldn't take them off when I first put them on. they were a wee bit tight for my crazy high arches, but, alas they were beaten into submission and are now my constant companion.) I bet you didn't think I could wax that eloquently about a pair of inanimate objects.

speaking of tough girls. I've been listening to this song incessantly, it is my anthem of spring (life maybe?) I heart Those Darlins and can't wait for their new CD!

finally wrapped up Giselle at the KC Ballet! here are some of my favorite costumes from the show (seriously decadent velvet and fur ball gowns)

I am now taking some well deserved days off! reading and napping are on the schedule! xoxo

witchy lady.

well, I've finally succumbed to the maxi dress trend (p.s. I hate saying maxi dress, too much like maxi pad?, just awkward to say in general) anywho, I found I couldn't go all in with the full length maxi and ended up breaking up the silhouette with my favorite mini sweater, what can I say six feet of solid dress just seemed like too much! but I DO love this dress and am feeling very bohemian and witchy in it.

I've been CRAZY busy, working 3 jobs all last week (ballet, like normal & Grease, the broadway show & house sitting) whew! but it's all worth it, cause I am saving up for a girls trip to San Francisco with my two besties! can't wait, can't wait!
