wearing vintage mink hat, banana republic sweater, APC striped shirt, J Brand jeans, Jeffrey Campbell boots, ring - birthday gift from Tara (thanks Tara), laptop case from Byrd & Belle's etsy shop

My boyfriend's car is back after a little trip to the Outer Mission (allegedly) and a $350 tow truck ride. Get this: apparently in SF, if your car gets stolen, the helpful city will retrieve it, tow it to their impound lot, and generously charge you $400 for said towing and storage. Why the victim of theft would need to pay that kind of money to get their stolen property back is beyond me, but I smell a racket. If only I weren't so sleepy, I would launch into an undercover mission and expose the whole scam. What is this, freaking Cold War Russia??

And speaking of Cold War Russia (you see how I did that? I'm amazing) I snatched up the perfect fur hat at Black and Brown, then decided the wood-paneled study in my parents' house was the perfect location to photograph it. I feel like a sephardic version of Julie Christie.

  7. 1. I'm not sure where these pictures are taken, but they remind me of my great-aunt's amazing wood paneled 1960s apartment. I would like to tile my house with this type of thing.

    2. Fur hats= awesome.

    3. You are quite amazing :)

    -A!
