Monday Morning Inspiration

In Beautiful, Current Obsession, Life, Think about this on October 25, 2010 at 1:46 pm

dreary morning in boston. and it’s monday, which puts me in a even drearier mood. but this short had me up and running. i have to do the things I have to do or else it wouldn’t be mine to do.

its touching to think that there are these people out there who have no idea i exist who i had no idea they existed that inspire me everyday. that do the tasks I would never credit them for doing but do it any way and do it FANTASTICALLY.

and the soundtrack to this documentary is also inspiring. perfect with morning tea.

I’m over compensating

In Beautiful, Current Obsession, Fashion on October 21, 2010 at 4:15 pm

to compensate for my lack of enthusiasm over all the new collections, this post is dedicated to my one and only frighteningly ferocious love, Rick Owens.

I’ve been salivating over this jacket and contemplating on the justification of the splurge ever since i tried it on at the store over this summer. Yes, under the sweltering heat of august sun, i dared to try on mountains of sheep shearing encased in leather. it’s got this intense ribbing on the arms that just yells freakish. it had me at freakish. i mean, honestly, who doesn’t want a freakishly fiercely bamf leather jacket just in time for halloween?

just when i thought i couldn’t possibly salivate any more in fear of dehydration, this lovely piece of item was added to luisaviaroma.com.

do you think if i scream I LOVE RICK OWENS I LOVE RICK OWENS long enough the halloween fairy “cough dad cough cough” will plop one of these luscious jackets on my lap?

Not all days are good but there is good in everyday.

Today…. I am channeling the paris apartment. quite literally. I have lifted the title of this post directly from her today’s post. oops.

that’s me. at the cape. enjoying my weekend and the lovely sunset. a week ago.

but i’ve been super tired this week and was wondering what was wrong me with me. this is legit the conversation that went down in my doc’s office.

me: so.. i don’t have mono?
doc: no. the tests came back negative.
me: so… why am i SO tired ALL the time?
doc: you’re probably stressed just like last semester.
me: but.. i have nothing to be stressed about! i’m light loading, i have dinner parties, i take lots of time for myself, tons of tea and chocolate to keep me happy, and i’m traveling and spending my weekends in a happy stress free manner.
doc: you may be stressed about not having a real source of stress anymore
me:….. are you kidding me? you’re seriously telling me that I’m stressed about not being stressed?????
doc: it sure appears that way.

this won’t be the first time i’ve concluded that my doc is a phony. but she’s actually absolutely brilliant.. sigh.. am i really stressed about being in a steady state of calm?

in even worse news. there is nothing that excites me anymore in fashion… i’ve been walking around in my leggings, grandpa/fisherman cable knits, mountains of scarves, and minnetonkas all week.
