while i have my head in the clouds

garance dore

where in the freaking world can i find tights with hearts?
tiny hearts big velvet hearts medium hearts i don't care i just have been looking for them for only eight million years//one.

the search must go on.
plus i should probably get more serious about it now that fall seems inevitable.

a vanessa bruno basic i'm craving in my favorite navy blue

how's everyone's week going?

failed attempt to see the wonderful local natives at spaceland this evening
apparently three/four weeks into their residency they're still a huge hit. lines etc.
we were ill-prepared for such popularity.

annyhow, there's one more week in august and i will not be fooled this time around.

blabber blabber hope everyone's week has started off well
and check out local natives. they're great.
just make sure you aren't in front of me in line next week.
(that only barely makes sense)

happy friday!!!

i celebrated my six year LAnniversary last night with my best lessa. we met each other six years ago on august 20 on our first day in this lovely city.
tecates, new kitten time (i'm an aunt! to a beautiful black kitty with a white splotch who let me pet him and purred named oscar!), kogi (note, ko-gee, hard g, not kojee, point of discussion), and the project runway premiere (hello, two uncool girls from southcarolinahomestate, love the dreads guy, should have kicked off the girl with the tacky purple dress who seems cool but ick)

anyhow, i love my best and i love this city and don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

love where you are.
and love friday :)
and everyday!
(okay, most days.)

this is honest, even if it's obnoxious. i think i'm honestly obnoxious. or honestly, i think i'm obnoxious. frankly, whatever, it's my head.

via suddenexposure

i was walking home
wondering how one little person can be so cynical and so idealistic

and a woman stopped me to see if i would take a survey
on camera
which was
one question
"what do you believe?"

camera rolling awkward and frankly not (ever) sure what i believe
i said
'i would like to think i believe in the good of people
and in happiness
and that the sun rises every morning
and sets every evening
and that's all
i think'

and you know, maybe that is all.

ladies and gentleman

at the suggestion of a dear friend i watched philadelphia story this evening...
katharine hepburn is beyond.
(cary and jimmy too)
even her bathing suit cover-up (see photo 2) is gorgeous and elegant.
sometimes i so wish i had been born in the days where women always wore dresses, men wore suits and hats, there were grand parties with endless champagne, and people with manners and class.

oh, to be treated like a lady.
