Today finally revealed itself to be a holiday when I got online. Sad, I know. This year my family is not exchanging gifts, and I have been Christmas shopping for myself.
polka dotted tights x -found them downtown for $4! them found another pair in my Mom's drawer of stockings.
thigh high boots- waiting for the nine west pair to go on sale.
thigh high socks
tattoo x -headed down to PB with my best friends before returning to LA.
black crossbody bag x -thanks girls! also found another in my mom's closet.
oxford shoes xish- I fit an old pair of my dad's loafers, but they're not perfect.
so maybe I will get everything on my Christmas list if I feel like spending $100 on each pair of the shoes I want.

looking forward to friday and the rest of my life.
came upon this site via knightcat, and i would be all too happy to throw on one the following pieces with a pair of black skinnies (which i need, because my cheap mondays have holes in shady locations).

The Universe says, "Okay!" and I say, "Thank you!"
Sun bubbles and the young person's air conditioning, meteor showers and navels and beaches, Andy Warhol pretends not to care, feeling pretty as Marilyn Monroe, shopping early with friends- finding too short dresses and lacy shorts, sleeping forever in your king sized bed, and enjoying pumpkin pancakes and free croissants.

I've always spent way too much time deciding what to wear in the mornings. I'm usually late because I have to rake through my options. I begin to count down as I stare at the contents of my closet, 10... maybe the black vest...9...then I can wear my nikes, and skate...8...oh no! my black pants are greener than my vest...7...
Why do I bother? To be honest, I know I won't feel as good if I'm not wearing an outfit suited to the day's feelings. I know that if someone stares at me a bit too long, that I'll try and will them to understand why I chose this outfit. Everyone wants to say something, present their personality, define themselves in this overpopulated world. And do we understand them? It's hard to know, but I thought I'd start trying with this project.
I photographed friends in a neutral setting, then in their clothes of choice, and then I photographed just their clothing. They're all pieces of the great portrait puzzle.
