DEC 28

ticket booked.
one way.
the only way. a new way.
a new chapter. a new life. 
a new york.
a sharp tingle creeps up my body, beginning at my toes.
jumping off the edge of the cliff is never easy.
nervous excitement.
lingering sadness. a farewell.
a warm hello.

On December 28, 2014 at 6:50am, I will depart LAX for JFK with no return flight. So many emotions have been stirred up that I didn't know were inside me until tonight. Feelings of excitement have been around since I've made the decision, but now it is coupled with sadness, fear, anxiety, excitement, hope, and most of all love. Love for the city which first took my heart when I first visited at 17. Love for the man of my dreams who is more than anything I could ever manifest. Love for my friends already on the East Coast and love for ones who I haven't met yet. Love for the ones I am not saying 'goodbye' to, but 'see you soon'.

It's (was) that time of year again: Ye Olde Renaissance Pleasure Faire. Dragged me mates for their first times. The day consisted of impromptu drunken dancing, bacon wrapped asparagus, titties galore, archery, and pirate serenades. T'was a good day indeed.

Pulled together my gypsy outfit last minute, used the green scarf left over from The Oddwood shoot back in Febuary (this post)
thrifted crop top: $6, pleated palazzo pants: $2, tassel earrings: $7, scarves, tassels, and belts: found around the house
total: $15

can't wait till next year!

coat: borrowed, blouse: thrifted $2, corduroy shorts: $2 shoes: thrifted Chilis $9, 
chain necklace: $3, tiny purse: $1

I freaking love my tiny purse. When I first saw it at the thrift store I literally laughed out loud for a good 5 minutes. What's even better is the front pocket is like a wallet and has a place to hold my id and credit cards...super convenient. Aaaand it can be converted into a single or double strap. Second day in SF was amazing. We met up with the lovely Linds (or should I say Elle) and she was kind enough to be our tour guide for the day. Shopping at Haight & Ashbury, breakfast at Squat & Gobble (I had my favorite belgian waffles with strawberries), and VIP sightseeing. In Elle's words, How perf! Thank you again Linds and Laura for providing transportation!

My mini getaway to San Francisco was amazing to say the least. Nothing beats exploring a cultured city's eateries, sights, and sounds with some of your best friends. We arrived at our airport, all of us running on little to zero hours of sleep. Me being forever alone, my ticket placed me away from Dave and Lene who sat next to eachother. When I attempted to switch my seat, the mean asian lady simply said "No. It aisle seat." Either way the hour long flight was perfect for a power nap so I was fine the rest of the day.

thrifted cardigan: $2, thrift ed loose tee: $2, foreign exchange drop crotch leggings: $10, stone necklace: gift, hat: $1, thrifted purse: $2, H by Halston sandles: $65. total: $82

Last minute disposing of our products over 3 oz. to avoid a $25 bag check fee

I love those handy dandy little garters that seem to accompany all those 90s floral rompers. Used it to cinch a loose tee for more dimension. You can see a better draping effect in this picture:
Lalene's blogger friend Miss Kathleen of Inspirifashion was so kind to meet up with us and take us shopping around Union Square. I loved her, not only does she have awesome style but she has Lonely Island's "I'm on a Boat" memorized and is down to get drunk and belt it out at a karaoke bar with us. Challenge accepted. ;)

Strawberries are in season... and on sale at Ralph's for 88 cents! This is cause for celebration, red velvet and classic white layered cake. I love substituting freshly whipped cream instead of frosting, it's way less heavy and you can control how much sugar you put in. This cake is even better when left in the fridge for a day.

I had the pleasure of getting a sneak peek of the new Plum for Pollyshoe arrivals coming very soon....and there are no words to describe the awesomeness that is about to ensue!! Stay tuned.....

Shot a mini lookbook this past weekend for Plum for Polly's Spring campaign with the whole gang at Hermosa Beach. Some photos from behind the scenes. It was such a beautiful day in SoCal filled with good company and pineapple coconut ice cream. Ron Alan headed photography with the help of Jeff F. and Chris B. while Dave filmed. Styled by Jo and Lalene, modeled by myself and Joana D. The photos came out amazing as always and I am madly in love with the graphic print monokini I got to wear. Can't wait till P4P has it up! Stay tuned...



"So why did I do it? I could offer a million answers - all false.
The truth is that I'm a bad person. But, that's gonna change - I'm going to change.
This is the last of that sort of thing.
Now I'm cleaning up and I'm moving on, going straight and choosing life.
I'm looking forward to it already.
I'm gonna be just like you.
The job,
the family,
the fucking big television.
The washing machine,
the car,
the compact disc and electric tin opener,
good health,
low cholesterol,
dental insurance,
starter home,
leisure wear,
three piece suite,
game shows,
junk food,
walks in the park,
nine to five,
good at golf,
washing the car,
choice of sweaters,
family Christmas,
indexed pension,
tax exemption,
clearing gutters,
getting by, looking ahead, the day you die. "
