Some things are better left unsaid

It looks as though I am about to get abducted here.
(blazer-Modcloth, black dress as tee-A Wang, paneled leggings-Nastygal, boots-H&M, sash-American Apparel)
Lately the weather has been decidedly cranky, unable to make up it's mind and periodically drenching all of SF with unnecessary rain. Since rain + camera = no good, I decided to go play around in the basement. My basement, like much of the entire building, is a curious place. There are so many nooks and crannies to explore, you always end up unwittingly finding some long forgotten artifact that was trash to someone else, but immediately becomes a must have treasure in my strange, hoarding mind. I have to admit that I love finding things. One of my favorite pastimes (when I still had a car) was driving around to the Goodwill drop off stations in the middle of the night and rummaging through other people's discarded items. Yup, I am that dumpster diving, crazy lady who you see on the street and wonder how she got there. And I am happy to have my boyfriend as a partner in crime, his artistically inclined mind always finds use for the things we drag home.

A huge thank you to Modcloth for sending me this amazing blazer.

i suggest submitting it to the American Apparel website, people always post photos of themselves doing cool thing with AA items, and this looks fabulous!

i looove this, those leggings and blazer are meant to be! the print of the blazer is sooo edgy yet chic, i can totally see how its your style! I fall more in love with your blog everyday and I'd love to swap links if you're interested :) p.s- is it awkward getting used to a two finger ring? I havent tried one yet..

Maeko said...

I love that you can admit that you dumpster dive. It's always that we assume our glamourous blog icons are so chic and fabulous and untouchable in real life, that it's astounding that you're as quirky and strange as the rest of us.

Bravo.
