Vintage Levi's and SS06 Pradas DAY TWO

You may have noticed my fanatic obsession for worn in denim (it's always peeking out of the corners of my inspiration boards)....it's so difficult to find vintage Levi's for women in tiny sizes but I managed to snag this pair on eBay in my size for $20 while I was in Mexico...they're so beautiful! They arrived in the mail today.

^(don't mind the awful picture quality...) today I'm repeating yesterday's ensemble a bit with a simple shirt (cotton button down from J Crew), Pradas (which thanks to some helpful readers I found are from SS06), and a See by Chloe puffer vest.

If you like these jeans you will freak out over these two looks from a spread in Doingbird magazine (issue number 13?) these pictures were scanned by Alien Sex Fiend at TFS...thanks!

Yikes, I've embarked on a closet cleaning project as of today...what a pain, but a necessary pain.
Flared flannel orange plaid high waisted pants....whuuuutt
where do I find these things....

7 songs of summer

I was tagged by Rosie of La Mode Vogue...to choose my seven favorite songs of summer!

1. SORRY PARTY by Tickley Feather
 ^SOMEONE NEEDS TO USE THIS SONG ON A RUNWAY SOUNDTRACK! PRONTO!

2. AVALON by Roxy Music
All time favorite album for the summer-Avalon is a great song. Reminds me of summer hangouts with your friends.

3. NEW VIOLENCE by White Williams
Hella peppy and sorta dancy-I have a huge crush on White Williams.

4. EVERYBODY DAYLIGHT by Brightblack Morning Light
Well, I would choose this whole album but I can only choose one song...sloooow and steady and kinda groovy.

5. WAITING FOR THE SUMMER by Yeasayer
Makes me happy to be alive...such a cool sound, I missed the chance to see them in Dallas recently and I was super bummed.

6. CHEREE by Suicide
Breathy sexy innocent and manic-I LOVE SUICIDE!

7. BABY by Os Mutantes
Not really typical of Os Mutantes sound but so so so summery.

Dinner with my family tonight-and some new shoes

Shirt from J. Crew, vintage Levi's 501s, Banana Republic belt, Prada shoes

This pair of Pradas are 'new'...mom and I got them to share because they were a ridiculously good price on eBay, but I don't know what season they are from?? Am I just totally out of the loop...maybe they're a few years old, I'm just not remembering seeing anything like them. In any case, they're very now...I've seriously been feeling open toe booties (see Givenchy F/W 08!!) and these are such a nice buttery color. Maybe I'll do a seperate post about them later.

Shopping mission-

These outfits got me thinking that a slinky silk robe in some sort of tiled glamourous print is just what I needed...I love the way Vivienne stuck her pins all over hers! Vintage costume brooches are the perfect thing to dress up a robe..I have one of a spaniel completely covered in rhinestones! Maybe I could even score Anthropologie for their pajama sets-there is also a Goodwill in Euless that always has satin Chinese robes! Carrie's opera coat is so fabulous, I wish I could find something like it. 

Sort of 40's glamour queen/today's drag queen/poor little rich girl/eccentric recluse allure....

So it's back to Texas on Thursday

I get home on Thursday and I'm really excited-I miss my clothes, my mom, my sister, my dogs, my shoes....not in that order, but you know...until then I don't think I'll be posting much, it is unbelievably depressing to hunch over a computer in my dark little house when theres so much else to do out in the sun. Till then, here's my recent WAYWT's....geez, I look so grumpy in both of these pictures. Um, nice lighting difference too. Whatever!

I miss my closet-been wearing the same thing every day. Can't even begin to try my Forbidden Planet look I've been dreaming about. I look dissapointingly human.
