First Day!

My first day at the Gary Graham boutique in ABC Home!
#1. Geeked out over Gary Graham in the first place
#2. The store is amazing, with a creepy owl head mannequin. (Also can be interchanged with wolf head)
#3. ABC Home makes me want to buy everything in sight!
ahhhh. So good!
PLUS: super cool co-workers, who of course, had to model for me right away.

First Snow in Gary Graham!

wow. snowing today! i had to take a pic in my new Gary Graham fall outfit! it's nice and warm but not much of a match for all this snow. i left my horrid puffer coat in the house for the sake of fashion.

Merry Christmas from my old man!

super cool cross body bag made by a REAL native American. this is my Christmas 2010 present from my Pa. what a good job he did! he shops at the Soulard Farmer's Market in St. Louis, where you can buy 50 lbs. of onions for $1! it's a pretty special place. one time he bought a small lizard there but he found a green potato chip several months later and that was a tragedy.

Chuck guest blogs

Chuck sent in a very stylish submission, so he is my guest star for the day. I am way too cold to put on anything remotely cute.

"Chuck is wearing a vintage fishermans sweater from Germany along with rust brown slacks from the farmer co-op in Wedowee Al, the hat is a knitted beanie from the Dunlie region of China
Who's the stylista now baby!!"

Comme des Garcons=Like the Boys

i have been a tomboy most of my life, except that small chunk of time where i wanted to wear a spangly ice skating outfit all day when i was six after seeing the Ice Capades show. i wasn't going for the military look because i buck rather than follow trends, BUT....this Junya Watanabe for Comme des Garcons shorts-skirt changed my mind. ruffly yet boyish, it stole my heart the moment i saw it. once i put it on, i was doomed. it finally went on sale, though it is still one of my priciest designer pieces. it's my first Comme piece as well! first as in, i hope there are many more! it's timeless for sure and i guarantee i'll be a whacky old woman wearing it around town, but with maybe a pink chubby instead of boyish accoutrements.

a rainy day in Chanel somehow seems a little less rainy...

Fur cape was a barter for a photo shoot for June leathers, Chanel biker boots were a lovely "gift" from a friend who is getting a fabulous photo shoot in return in February!
