Colored Lace

Apparently, I am also addicted to lace.  I love the contrast of the colored lace over the black fabric.  I must have been in a hurry this day, because I forgot to accessorize.  I would've preferred to wear higher heels, but I wasn't sure how far I would have to walk (was going to a job interview).

Addicted to Skulls

I told you I was loving the skulls right now.  I'm sure you'll be seeing more of them later.  I love how these skulls have little bows on their heads.  It's that juxtaposition of hard and soft again.  The dress is open in the back, so you can't really wear a bra with it.  Joanna Coles would not approve.

What's a skull?

Oh My Stars

I've been sitting here staring at this first picture trying to figure out something to write.  The only thing I can think of is that I like the way this picture is overexposed--it makes my skin look perfect.  And that's all I have to say about that.  Yep, I'm brilliant.

We didn't get very many pictures of Scruffles.  I picked this one because I think it's funny.

Rocker Girl

I think these jeans are so incredibly cool.  I loved them when I saw them on Aimee Song's blog, Song of Style.  I'm super into skull prints right now and fortunately/unfortunately for me (unfortunately because I want to buy everything that has a skull on it), they're having a moment right now.  I love that this skull is covered in flowers, it's a great juxtaposition of hard and soft and I wouldn't want to look gothy.

This ring makes me wanna punch someone.

Over the weekend I took a trip to the Los Angeles County of Museum of Art.  Their light pole installation (that's totally the official name, right?) is a popular place to take pictures.

There were mostly kids playing here, but I didn't let that stop me.

Look!  A really big rock!

Look at me standing under the really big rock!

And now to take a closer look at the dress.  It's actually a mini dress with cut-outs, layered under a sheer overdress.  They came together as one piece.  I would not recommend wearing the mini dress on its own, as it is very short and tends to ride up.  I love this dress because it's a fun way to wear side cut-outs, while still remaining (somewhat?) modest.

She loves me so much!

Summer's Ending...

So it's unofficially the last weekend of summer.  (I say unofficial, because the first day of fall is not until September 22nd.)  I shouldn't complain, it'll probably stay hot here for at least another two months.  However, I keep hearing people say how much they're looking forward to fall.  I am not.  And it's for the most shallow of reasons--I like my summer clothes way better than my fall clothes.  I also don't feel like I've worn nearly enough of them.  I have way too many sundresses.  I would much rather wear a comfy, easy dress than a sweater.  And I hate wearing tights.  So I'm trying to wear as many dresses as I can before the weather turns.

Mommy, Mommy!

I'm cute!
