september favorites

This is the first ever monthly favorites post on this blog. Will this become a thing? I don't know. I never know. But it's almost the end of the month and I've already taken pictures of things... so let's just roll with it.
September 2013 Favorites
no 1. THE GLASS FLORAL BOX
Floral Glass Jewelry Box
This box was originally intended to keep Riesen's chocolates in because I saw a girl's room tour on Youtube and she had done that. Clearly I was influenced* because I went out and bought a box the same week. Sadly I don't have the chocolates yet so I put jewelry in it. I guess you could say it's filled with the worst kind of chocolate there is. No chocolate.

* Surprisingly not by alcohol

no 2. THE INITIAL NECKLACE
Silver C Initial Necklace
This was another late night eBay purchase. I tell ya, the middle of the night makes you need the things you see online. It wasn't expensive, but I've been wearing it a lot to make up for the guilt of ordering it. Doing that cancels out the shame right? Right? Oh no.

no 3. THE MCQUEEN BIOGRAPHY
Alexander McQueen Biography
My friend gave this book to me for my birthday at the beginning of the month and boy was he spot on in choosing it. Alexander McQueen has always been my favorite designer and this book is filled with so many behind-the-scenes facts. It has a lot of beautiful pictures and some pretty funny anecdotes about him too. Totally recommend!

no 4. ESSIE MIDNIGHT CAMI
Navy Nail Polish Essie Midnight Cami
Then there's this nail polish that looks black but is actually very dark navy. So it's trying to fool everyone into thinking it's super badass, but really it wears bunny footie pajamas to bed. Awwe.

Anyone else excited for October? I've definitely got Halloween on the brain!

COSTUMES.

when life gives you denim

Wear the absolute hell out of it.

If that's a real saying, then in terms of this shirt, mission well accomplished. Even one of the sleeves is starting to rip where it rolls it up! The true mystery is whether the rip is caused by plenty of wear, the quality of Target's clothing, or by my burly Popeye arm. Some mysteries are never meant to be solved.

The real love affair is with the shoes. They were 30 dollars, they are soft like velvet but definitely not, and their extra inches bring me to my dream height of 5'9. (I may have asked my mom to measure me with them on. What a ridiculous and oh so sad request. But nonetheless! It's love.)

Below is me attempting to hoist my foot up to show said wedges because I took these pictures with a self-timer on an iPad and it wouldn't tilt forward without falling over. It would never make it in the ballet world.
shirt: target
skort: zara
necklace: h&m
wedges: winners
nail polish: sally hansen coral reef

That's about it. I guess I'll keep this post skort and sweet. (Heh heh. Thank you Zara for manufacturing this skort and essentially making that wordplay possible.)

Have an excellent Friday/rest of Thursday!
