calivintage 's Thoughts:

oh the simplicity! i finally forced myself to stop moping around and get dressed for the day. i have been loving all the chambray i’ve been seeing around lately, so i picked up this blouse at h&m yesterday…

i really want to pair this with some black shorts! i’m loving all of the faded, destroyed blue denim out there, but how about in black?? i’ve got this old pair of black j brands, but i’m hesitating to destroy them because i think i paid full price way back when. ah, so for now i’m just wearing a black mini skirt as a stand in until i commit to destroying a pair of black jeans! haha!

anddd, i bought these knock-off matt bernson wedges at steve madden. i really wanted to buy the real thing, but they sold out on the matt bernson website! last year, i waited months on a pre-order for the flat gladiators, but i was too late in the game for the wedge version for this year. c’est la vie!

so this is what i’m thinking about right now:

1. destroyed black denim shorts.
2. chambray!
3. wood wedges. ok, any wedges, really.
4. little purses. i’m sick of lugging around a giant sack everywhere i go!

5. oh, and about the hair… see my last post and you’ll see what that’s all about. i’m currently taking recommendations for hair stylists in the sf bay area. sigh.

6. and isn’t it sooo annoying when you ruin your manicure like right after you get it? i was too hungry to wait to eat after i got my nails done yesterday and i dug my nails into a piece of chicken. sad, but true.

Gah. Simplicity at it's finest! I have been in denial about my love of wedges for quite some time now...but I've accepted it now. These are so cute, but I don't expect anything less from you :P

I think the skirt works nicely, and what about coloring some other jean shorts you have black so then you could go for the destroyed faded look, very cute. haha. But you are adorable, and look great!

i wish we had an h&m here :( i would be buying sweet shirts like that allll the time. ok how did she butcher your hair? can't tell obviously since you're hiding it haha. but i doubt its that bad. and really for a quick fix, i would go to a beauty school and get it done, they cant screw you over because it has to be approved before you leave!!
calivintage on March 26
aha. that's an interesting idea. and basically, yeah, i'm hiding it. the cut is layered a lot, but somehow really simple and very blunt. like, you can see the cut marks. i think it's because i have thick, straight hair. she was just, i dunno, very unprofessional... it looks like if i had cut it myself, or if i went to supercuts...
