I had a terribly dramatic experience regarding a coworker and some picture frames. Anyway, It left me out in the cold, hunting for a frame. I stumbled upon this one at Goodwill, not knowing the size, just relying on my eye. Im glad the drama occurred. I like having to work for my things and this story is no different plus, my Korea pic looks awesome in it.
Some people like shoes or bags, maybe makeup... I like nail polish (not to say I don't like those other things, I just Really like polish) and I Always have. I used to paint my neighbors nails when I was eight. On average, I'd say I paint them twice a week.
I am obsessed.
My friend Devon had heard of my obsession for antlers, as anyone who spends five minutes with me would. Being the thoughtful girl that she is, she decided to treat me to the below pair as a housewarming gift. I may have screamed. They are certainly my most prized home good. If my apartment were on fire, I would grab my computer and external, these antlers and a robe to cover up, I guess.
What do you think of my blue ceiling?
My apartment is old and decrepit, therefore the kitchen ceiling was peeling and stained brown from the old school stove below. I had some left over paint (yes, I am that cheap) from some other projects, so took it out on my ceiling. I'm pleased with the result.
... Balenciaga Dinner ...
Shopping for me is not about accumulating more or nicer things. It's about the hunt. I take the following things into consideration: how much is it worth, how much will I pay, how hard did I have to look, how rare is the find. This isn't to say I don't like a good ol' GAP attack - easy, fruitful and common - but my favorite pieces, the ones I cherish most were expensive to someone, cheap for me, in the corner or crazy basement and have never/will never see again.
Or in the case of the Balenciaga below, it's worth a bundle, I paid $20 at a women's shelter, then twice that to have it repaired, plus I have been eyeing the real deal for a lifetime. Chalk that up to a major score!

My boss threatened last week, if you don't dress seriously, no one will take you seriously. I don't like that statement, but I suppose the uptight business world isn't a place for an eager, fashionista wannabe. It is for uptight suits and uptight people.
In order to feed my passion/obsession I have to walk the walk... or skip the walk. One can only bend so much. To do so, my wardrobe needed (I use this word knowingly loosely) flowy tops and giant flair work pants. GAP must have heard my cry. They had a wild sale on several neutral silk tops.
This not only fulfills a goal, but feeds my love for neutral tops with colorful bottoms! TWOFER!
I don't know what my style is. A coworker told me she looks forward to seeing what I come up with next. Another said she likes to guess what I'm going to wear every day. Even a color/clothing specialist once said that my style is "costume wear" because I like to mix it up so much. I guess you could say I'm a bit boho, a pinch prep, and a grain of grunge. Stick around to see what I mean.
