Sea Glass

When I started blogging 2 years or so ago man-pants were all the rage . Even now I am proud to say Im still sporting the over-sized trouser look with enthusiasm and vigor. These Moschino purple heels are perfect for balancing the pants out so I dont get too man-ish. I love the embossed bows and peep-toe, perfect lady like footwear!

My aunt has given me a bunch of beautiful pieces of jewelry since she's emptying out her closet. This is one of the pieces and I love it so much. Thanks!

I've been in what you could say a musical rut. Nothing sounds good, not even Vampire Weekend, which is really saying something. Tomorrow I have a date with a boy who somehow suckered me in to it. He'll probably talk about music at some point. We'll see how that goes... maybe I'll find out about a new band. Ill let you know...

Wearing mint green trousers and striped tank from American Apparel, vintage rhinestone necklace, Moschino Cheap & Chic purple bow heels, and vintage beaded belt, M.A.C. lipstick in Chili.

if you're in a musical rut, can i suggest any of emily haines's work? she's with metric and broken social scene and i find her both a music and fashion inspiration...just in case the guy doesn't give any new bands for you :)

good luck on your date. i'm sure that you will have no problem deciding what to wear!

Anna said...

Have fun on your date :)
I hate musical ruts. I feel like I lose myself when I have one of those since music is undoubtedly my escape route for any anything. I'll just list off a few of my favourites. Maybe you'll find one you haven't heard of yet or never listened to: The Temper Trap, Sufjan Stevens, Beirut, Metric, Stars, Florence and The Machine, Arcade Fire, Andrew Bird, Charlie Winston, John Butler Trio, Keane.

Anna said...

Oh and Kasabian!

I love how you dress, but I don't really like those red shoes, that's the kind of shoes moms wear.. I don't like them at all.. you look older than you are..

Henna @ AboutDivorce Blog said...

you look very good, just change the sandles for some high heeled and strappy things that look really cool, get something in black to heighten your dress

Castor Pollux said...

you look so stunning! i adore the pastel colors of your outfit! :)

Hey SW,

I love visiting your blog as its so refreshingly unique.

I was wondering if you could help me out with something - a bit strange, but I'm doing an internship with NYLA Boutique- London (hey're an online boutique that sells brands and designers from New York and LA, not well-known in London) and I have the task of sourcing new designers for the upcoming season. The problem is that I have been hitting a lot of obstacles due to my being in London and not being acquainted with the local brands and designers. I was wondering if you could suggest a few brands and designers (just so that I can research a broader spectrum)... I know this is a random request but it would be such a big help. Any suggestions are welcome)
e-mail:ro_mills@hotmail.co.uk

I have done a piece on NYLA on my blog at wonderlandcloset.blogspot.com, if you want to know more about them...So far they're doing LA brands like - Dolan by West Coast, Bleu Feather, Sauce and Tolani...NY- Prince Peter Collection, Love Brigade, Christopher Lee Suáve and nOir Jewelry.
