Just Checking In

Theory dress, Swarovski ring, tassle necklace from Dorothy Perkins, vintage bead necklace

I haven't been up to much lately, just golfing and a bit of shopping. I went to Neiman Marcus Last Call on Sunday where they were having a crazy sale - 50% off of all color-stamped items.
I got this Marc Jacobs cardigan:

and this little Escada jacket (type thing):

at an insanely low price.

I also got the sequined dress pictured above. Other than those purchases not much has happened. But I have plans to go out for shopping and dinner, and then downtown, with a friend on Friday... so I'll have a much more exciting post (hopefully) for you this weekend!



P.S. Sorry about the crappy photo quality... I was in a hurry so I took them with my webcam.

La La Land

It's not like I live in L.A., or anywhere near it, but I've suddenly become interested. Some may call it obsessed. I never used to be, and I think it all started with me reading the Poseur series (love you, Rachel Maude), and was fueled by reading the A-List series, which is also fab.

I mean, it doesn't all appeal to me. I don't have that much interest in making it as a model, actress, singer, producer, director, agent, craft service, or valet... but I do adore L.A. style.

Some of the lifestyle seems fun. Living large - going to parties, shopping on Rodeo Drive, meeting friends and eating at exclusive restaurants and lounging by the pool. (People, I totally realize this isn't the average person's Los Angeles, okay? Humor me.)

And no, I don't mean this:

But, you know. Mingling and whatnot.

That's all good, but mostly, it's the style.

Casual but stylish, with light layers, boots, big glasses and a huge purse, I think it's the perfect look for a day out. It's effortlessly chic and totally comfortable.

Phones and -yawn- School Clothes

I've been thinking about getting a new phone but I can't decide between a Blackberry Curve or a Palm Pre. You've probably never heard of the Pre, but basically it's a lot like the iPhone (which I can't get because I don't have AT&T), but sliding and with a QWERTY keyboard.

I know Blackberrys are mostly for business, I don't actually do business, but I still totally love them. Basically, I'm torn, so let's compare

Blackberry: they're cool, and business people use them (so professional). They look pretty nice, too, I guess (http://www.blackberry.com/blackberrycurve/)

Pre: probably better for me because I don't do business, with a touch screen and downloadable apps, and a full keyboard, which is nice (http://www.palm.com/us/products/phones/pre/)

But the Pre is also kind of an iPhone knockoff, whereas the Blackberry is a league of it's own, if I may.

I am unbelievably tired as I'm writing this so I'm kind of not paying attention to what I'm writing. Maybe it sounds like crap - I wouldn't know.

Another issue is school clothes. And I don't mean that like I outgrew my old ones and need larger versions of my old clothes (like when I was, say, seven). I mean, what do I want to look like this year? (Or, at least, the beginning of it, because towards the middle of the year I'll just forget about all that and go back to normal.) I have no idea what my theme will be, so how can I shop for new clothes?
Um, buy the ones that look cute?
But you guys know what I mean, right?


I don't mean "yawn" as in boring (though this might be boring, I really don't know), I mean it as in I am so tired I can barely keep my eyes open.
