T

{T by Alexander Wang. Spring 2010 ad campaign. Launched January 2010. Featuring Hannah Holman. Photographed by Daniel Jackson}

I popped into my favorite store Hampden yesterday to take some pictures for Charleston Style (with no intention to purchase anything, of course…unless it’s an impulse buy, of course). Low and behold- I found the white T by Alexander Wang top that I have been drooling over since it came out forever ago….FOR $40!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yeah, I know “$40 for a t-shirt is pretty steep” (says my cousin). Then again, he has no idea who Alexander Wang is and how this t-shirt is no ordinary t-shirt, it’s a T! Also, keep in mind this shirt was originally $80. And to put it into perspective, a similar top at J Crew is $35…and that’s no AWang. Sounds like I have a good case right? Guess not. He ended up convincing me not to impulse buy. However, my rule is “If you are still thinking about said item the next day, a purchase is necessary and no longer an impulse buy.” Still thinking about it.

Don’t worry, I currently have it on hold.


my lookbook crush

I have a new crush. Yes, I know, not another one…but it’s inevitable.

If you aren’t already aware, crushes have included Logan Neitzel from Project Runway (I met him in all of his glorious-ness during CF/W), Yvan Rodic of the Face Hunter (love me some tall, lanky, hilarious men), Miles from Work of Art (there’s something about his OCD-ness that turns me on…odd), and now this random guy I found on Lookbook.

It’s hard to find a guy who is hot, witty, cool (can’t think of a better word, but yeah…cool), talented, has good style but is still guy-y and most importantly…straight. Sounds too good to be true right? WRONG. I stumbled across Jordan on lookbook today and couldn’t help but lurk. He’s obviously attractive. His lookbook captions are witty. His tumblr proves that he is talented (I wonder if he could pimp-out my blog for me? hmm). He is hilarious as fuckkk-check the vids below. His style is a balanced mix of typical guy and hipster (no one likes too much hipster except, well, hipsters)…and he’s straight! Actually, I could be completely wrong about this one but judging by his lookbook and tumblr, he seems pretty straight. AND he likes cats!!! Wow, I sound creepy.

Dontcha just love school girl crushes…Call me!

red me like a book

My Inner Red Head

I have an addiction. A hair-changing (persona changing) addiction.  I’ve had long hair and short hair. Straight-across fringe and no fringe. I’ve been blonde (for six months…those were the days), brunette, black, red and even had teal streaks (not my best). Each hair moment represented a different “me”…. Long=beach-y summer hair (aka trying to look like a Victoria’s Secret model). Short=sassy grown-up hair (trying to get an internship). Fringe=trendy hipster hair. Black=sultry. Blonde=flirty. Teal=Ashlee Simpson obsessed days. Brunette=natural.

And then there’s red. The color that keeps calling me.

Puts me in the mood for some red,red wine.
