dia de los madres

I'm gonna be honest with you: this is basically just a post for the sake of posting. I've been annoyed with the pictures I've been taking lately and so haven't wanted to post any of them, but! I'm a problem solver, and thus I've been talking to some local photographers about doing some TFP work which means that, joy of joys, some decently shot photos of me should be coming to this blog fairly soonish. Can I get a hallelujah?

First, new shoes paired with one of my favorite shirts I own that I can only very rarely figure out how to wear:

Top, Prada. Shorts, Theory. Shoes, Miu Miu.

A few days later I saw this picture and realized that I'd internalized it to get to the outfit posted above.

Still from Taxi Driver.

Not gonna lie, this movie is responsible for a lifelong obsession with finding the perfect pair of wedge heels. I think these are pretty damn close to ideal, but one must never rest on these things, you know? Anyway, what better style icon than a teenage hooker character? I ask you.

This next outfit is one born from pure necessity: these sandals are the only ones I own that are backless, and I recently brought out a pair of flats I don't wear very often and came out of the situation with some vicious blisters (if that's not the name of a punk band already, it should be). Also I went to the movies to see Iron Man 2, and I always have to wear jeans to the movies because otherwise I freeze to death.

Since the outfit is possibly not the world's MOST exciting ensemble, I perked it up a bit by matching my lipstick to my shoes. I'm obsessed with this lipstick - it's 203 by Make Up For Ever and it's the most perfect shade of bright fuchsia. Love, love, love.


Tank top, Piko 1988. Jeans, Rich & Skinny. Shoes, The Gap.


  1. You got your Miu Miu's, congrats! How's the fit? Are they true to size? They work really well with the Prada top.

  2. Hey L, thanks for commenting! I actually have the worst fucking time finding Miu Miu's that fit perfectly - I'm an exact 40.5 in them. So considering that I'm generally a 40 or 41 in other shoes, yeah, they're probably perfectly true to size! :) And pretty comfortable too.
