Yeah, I watched The Great Gatsby...
In fact wanted a modern twist to the 20s thats why thought of fashion shows. Anyway, I did my own interpretations so I guess its good enough

i plan all these trendy fashion-y outfits but when i actually get dressed, i don't wear any of it the way i planned to...

like...ever......
in the end, i dress according to my mood that day...
i guess my mood is just not very trendy or fashion-y for the most part...
...

i do enjoy creating the looks though...

i finally wore my long wool yohji mermaid skirt...
wore it to the opera with a full length mink coat and tall black boots...
it was so warm and so comfy...

i need to work out a better outfit/top for it, but i am certain it will look great with a certain pair of new boots i've got because it has a lovely slit up the back of one ankle and the boots lace up the back and will just peek out...

can't wait for the snow to clear up so i can wear them together...
yay!

wore the YY mermaid skirt again for my b-day dinner...


this time i wore it this way
LIMI feu chiffon pirate top with knitted band at the bottom (skinny blk tank underneath)- sleeves pushed up
Y's cutaway gabardine jacket (sleeves rolled)...
a.f.vandevorst boots that lace up the back
MMM silver multi chain bangle
black mesh ring with giant pearl
ugo cacciatori anchor necklace (naturally)
little black fur jacket and mogolian lamb fur scarf
dries black bag w. gold embroidery


just a few of my favourite things!


*the front slit really opens when i walk...and the back slit swirls nicely around the other ankle...
the stretchiness of the fabric makes it super comfy even though it is wool...
i actually did not wear anything on my legs and i was perfectly warm and comfortable...
it's very soft on the skin and feels very light...
it's so great...i love it~!!!

I have been feeling a bit ... sloppy looking lately, even though I have been putting more effort into my clothing than I have done in a long time. I think it is mainly because my hair is a mess since I am having my bangs grow into the same lenght as the rest of my hair.

Today I did an easy updo and smacked on a bit of lipstick (and no other makeup) and I feel much better. It is amazing how little things can make such a big difference in regards of how you feel about yourself.

i have a jean paul gaultier classique mermaid skirt. i need to find something form fitting to wear as a top. maybe a tight tank top. i havent worn it outside of the house as i dont want it to drag on the ground. might need to get it shortened slightly.

oh lucy- i hope you figure it out and let that thing out of the house!
i actually went the other way and found something loose to wear on top...
i wore a tank, like you were thinking, but then i put something loose and sheer and a bit longer over the top..
otherwise, i would feel quite self-conscious...

but that's just me- always trying to conceal the curves...

i was just reunited with some old friends...

a chocolate brown lambskin leather jacket with a cross over mouton collar-
dolman sleeves and banded elastic bottom that has two snaps at the hip
*very 80's---lol---and still like new because it was too big when i bought it and so i gave it to my mom, who hardly wore it...
yay!

a black wool coat (calvin klein)- belted trench style with belted cuffs and very long (probably early 90's)...
had also given this to my mom because she said she needed a black coat and then she got one so she never wore mine...

so happy to have these back now!
you have no idea...
they are even better than i remembered them, which is always the case when seeing old friends...
...

and neither one looks even the least bit dated...
if anything, they look fantastically modern!
plus- the quality is insanely good...
oh joy!

just had to share...
yeah---i love my pieces to death...
literally...

i found jeans!!!


after missing out on those jeans last season, i thought i was out of luck...
but my obsessive nature took over and i actually found a pair that is almost as good...
by some random italian brand i never heard of...
they are great...
they are HUGE!...
...
someone else might think they are too big, but i love them belted and rolled up...
great dark blue wash with a fade in front and the best bit is they have diagonal hip pockets, like trousers~!

yattah!

...

so happy happy ...
*does little tap dance of joy*


they go with everything and will be the perfect thing to bring on my trip...
weeeeeeeeee....

so---
do i replace the prescription frames i just lost or make do with the ones i already have?

the sunglasses cannot be replaced- they are sold out
the sacai sweatshirt is also sold out- but maybe it will turn up somewhere eventually...

the prescription frames are the only thing i can get back...
cost:
$300 for frames
$350 for lenses



i've been bummed out for days...
not sure if i should just get new frames to cheer myself up...
or if i should just take it as a lesson to be more cautious with my things...

writing that out seems a bit crazy now---
why on earth would i punish myself, right?!

i should get the frames, i think...

i am actually pretty skeptical of warby parker. first of all their lenses are polycarb which can make lenses too thick esp. if you are nearsighted and have a strong prescription.

also their frames are too big for people with strong prescriptions.

what is the code number of the frames you lost?

soft, what do you think of the bobbi brown frames? i just bought one and i love it.

i know about 10 people who got WB frames when they first came out and they all loved theirs...
i just thought their styles were too 'safe' for me, personally...
i just ordered these frames from them...
apparently they will ship them to me and then i have 30 days to decide if i want to keep them, so it seems like it's worth a try at least...
http://www.warbyparker.com/eyeglasse...#blue-sapphire
i was looking for blue frames about a yr or two ago but never found one i liked and since then they've added new styles so it made sense to give them a shot...
i like that the arms are brown, not blue...
makes them seem more european and more expensive than they are, imo...

i saw your frames in the other thread lucy---
i didn't even know that she is making sunglasses and frames now...
i had a look at some online and they are quite nice...
not really what i'm looking for though...
*cat eyes look especially terrible on my face...
...

i don't know what the number code is for the frames i lost
they are by anne et valentin...
very round with a flat top...
this is a pic of my lost frames (top) and my frames from college (bottom)
i'm toying with the idea of just having my current prescription put into my old frame...
...
