Let me just start by saying I don't know how fashion-only bloggers do it. I don't mean the immaculate grooming and the impeccable styling, because obviously I have that down PAT! Specifically, I don't know how they can convince someone with such regularity to put up with their vanity and controlling ways to get a collection of gorgeous and professional-grade photos...or maybe that's just me. I also wonder how they find the most amazing backdrops for their pictures. Perhaps I've been living in the wrong neighborhoods, but the truth is I have no idea where the nearest graffiiti wall is, nor do I frequent any type of flea market that oozes anything other than a desire to take a shower. Not to mention how they have enough time in the week to take three or four sets of these pictures in the DAYTIME!! Do these people have full-time jobs?? Do they live somewhere like Arizona or Indiana where daylight savings time doesn't exist? (haha, jk, no one fashionable lives in Arizona or Indiana!!)
What I'm getting at is this: I want to do more outfit posts for all of you, really I do, but in an effort to salvage my relationship with Kyle and avoid unleashing my Joan Crawford-worthy diva demands (is asking for an iced tea with no ice too much??), I can only do them sporadically, or when I have something I feel like I HAVE to show off. Cue my new starry cropped jacket and Jeffrey Campbell Audrey wedges.
With the colder weather still struggling to make up its mind whether it wants to hang out with D.C. or not, layering has been key in the last few weeks. It's not so much that this jacket would even keep me warm as much as it's that I just need to justify the reason I keep spending money. But I mean, c'mON! How adorable is its elongated front and cropped back?!
Ever since my favorite Sam Edelman shoes died on me (and are no longer available anywhere!), I had been looking for an alternative nude shoe that would give me a lot of height. Is there any questions as to whether these 6" JC's fit the bill??
I call this picture "Standing, in repose":
I looked so amazing, that I had to check my pulse just to make sure I didn't pass out from being so effing adorable:
