wearing Madewell shirt and scarf, Zara coated jeans, Balenciaga heels, Timex watch, vintage ring

I clearly have no intention of ever taking this shirt off or posing for a picture without Kobe by my side. I can't help it!! He's so cute with his little flipper feet.

In more serious news, I am about to embark on a 3-day juice cleanse for the first time ever. Since I'm one who usually gets hangry (hungry angry) if I don't eat every 2 1/2 hours, this is going to be an exercise in emotional and physical self-control that probably won't be any more pleasant for friends, family, and co-workers than it will be for me. Already kicked off the "pre-cleanse" by cutting out caffeine (ouch), white flours (double ouch) and red meat. Wednesday is the day it all begins, so I'll be dragging each and every one of you along on this ill-advised adventure. Get ready.

There's nothing like denim on denim to coax out the beer-drinking, football-loving, gun-toting American in all of us.

Special shout-out to Tara (for the beautiful long silver ring from Portland) and Callie (for the vintage silver and glass necklace). You girls are the bestest birthday gifters ever.

wearing Acne Jacket, Madewell denim shirt, Leif leather leggings, vintage bracelet and necklace, Steve madden shoes

Spent a few (coldish) days in L.A. visiting a best friend this weekend. Checked out the Melrose Trading Post flea market (grabbed two amazing tops which I'll share later), ate at Mario Batalli's Pizza joint Mozza, strolled through Will Rogers Park, and finished off with dinner at Chateau Marmont seated within spitting distance of a distracted, chain-smoking Lindsay Lohan. Also saw Dita Von Teese hurrying out in an amazing femme tux. I know it's uncool to admit it, but I LOVE seeing celebrities. Going to L.A. without seeing at least three D-listers is like going to Africa without seeing any Zebras. Shit is just wrong.

is there a doctor in the house?


wearing vintage coat, Madewell shirt, vintage/UO necklaces, Leif leather pants

A predictably hipster outfit I wore to a friends' birthday a couple of weeks ago. Sometimes you just need a uniform.

I'm hopping down to LA this weekend to see a good friend and visit the Denim Doctor. I've heard GREAT things about the place, so I'm sincerely hoping they can mend my favorite black J Brand jeans. There is nothing quite so depressing as having fabric succumb to expanding flesh.

Thanks for all of your concerned comments about my car. Yeah about that...there's an update. Read about it on Angie's blog The Hotness Your Momma Warned You About. I'm too mortified to write it here.

IMGP2848 IMGP2847 what i wore to dinner: vintage dress, Louboutin shoes, TJ Maxx necklace

On Friday I got home from work and found that my car was missing. With a sinking feeling in my chest, I searched the blocks around my apartment, hoping that I'd eventually run into it and think, "duh, I forgot I parked there." Eventually I came to the realization that unless the car had taken itself for a drive, it had indeed been stolen. So I spent the better part of Friday night calling the police, waiting for them to come and take a report, and finally trying to convince them that identifying characteristics of my car--which include Louisiana brake tags and a number of angry liberal bumper stickers--were details worth writing down in their little notebooks. So in short, there's some asshole riding around in my 2000 Nissan Altima with 175,000 miles on it. And the police aren't going to do a goddamn thing except call me if they find it and give me 20 minutes to get to the location to pick it up or they'll charge me $300 to tow it to an impound lot.

Oh, and Friday was also my 29th birthday.

But fret not! In spite of the whole car theft incident, the weekend was awesome. I spent it at the Tonga Room with friends on Saturday and then went to dinner with my parents tonight. I think 29 will actually be a kick-ass year. As soon as I get a new car.

fancy pants

I couldn't have found a more perfect pair of pants to ring in the new year. When Anthropologie does 30% off sale items, good things happen.
