Wait, What’s that Scent?
Let’s first take a moment to notice my mouth is not open in any of these photos. Wanna know why? Because Downtown Los Angeles has turned into a dog park. Void of grass, like many major downtown cities, these animals are forced to ‘go’… where we walk. Fun. Extra set of nostrils? Yes, please.
*steps off soapbox…
The cardi? Missoni for Target…from the children’s section. Yes, the thirst was that real, friends. And I have no shame. I pull the sleeves up and voila!… an adult sweater… that even says ‘L’ on the tag. Winning.
**Now that I look at these pics, I’m realizing every item has a good story, and since I’m hoping you’ll stick around, I’ll share.
We’ve already addressed the mini cardigan, but the jeans…I’ve been wearing since junior year of high school. And to further put this into perspective for you, I’ll be 30 next year. Praise Jesus for Lycra.
The tank…compliments of my mom’s closet. Does she know? Mind your business. When I was younger, she wore it with these fabulous, floral culottes—now I’m finding some uses of my own. So thanks, Mommy. I’ll be expecting your phone call regarding this.
Ohhhh, and the tote. One thing you should know about me is that I rarely pay full price for clothes…or shoes…accessories.. you get it. Besides, EVERYTHING at the Gap goes on sale. Well, I almost cut it too close on this one. After two coupons and an employee discount, I think I got the last one in L.A. Talk about heart palpitations.
This brings us to the flats. The pretty, little satin flats that I could have used in a half size larger. But what’s a girl to do when they’re on sale for €9,00…in 38 and smaller? You make sure your toenails are trimmed and wish for the best. Cut it out; I’m not alone on this. And I couldn’t walk away. Besides.. they’ve stretched. I think.
