Stressed. Seriously.

So I have a great announcement - I'm now working for Rachel Pally!

But I've also been a ball of awful anxiety and sleepless nights for a few weeks now because of constant schoolwork and classes, health issues I had to go home to Arizona for, a problem with an old friend who I miss terribly but fear its beyond repair, going out of town every weekend last month and missing school, not getting to spend time with the boyfriend when he comes out to see me because of my hectic schedule and even though I'm super excited about my job, worrying about the hours affecting my schoolwork. UGHHHHH. Heidi, I feel you.


WEARING:

Barney's Coop Black Boyfriend Cardigan


Wildfox Indian Tank


Zara Black Leggings


Dolce Vita Ellie Sandals


And busted out an old friend... The Foley & Corinna City Bag! So versatile, even if its really 2007ish.


Also, I'm thinking of listing my super battered Louis Vuitton Monogram Keepall duffle bag on here for a super-low price since I clearly cannot be trusted with nice things and eBay doesn't allow Louis listings anymore. What do you think?

Halloween Wrap-Up

Trying to frantically finish my research paper so that I can visit the new Barney's in Scottsdale with my mom this afternoon. Had a fun Halloween night at the Stone Rose lounge where my friend's manfriend had a table and I partook in his bottle service ;)


Wearing AA gray cardigan, LNA beige racerback tank, Thakoon for Target skirt, Louboutin simple patent pumps, JEP boutique belt, Balenciaga floral bag, Chloe Myrte sunglasses

My Anna Wintour costume would have gone over better in LA. I had the weirdest comments ever about it. Even the old gay-guy convention that we made friends with didn't know who she was! Its not their fault though, they were from Albuquerque....


WEARING:

Forever 21 Rolled-Sleeve Boyfriend Blazer


T Alexander Wang Taupe Tank


BP Spandex Leggings


Jeffrey Campbell Corset Boots (found the coveted Ann D. knockoffs for $87 on David Z's website - amazeballs!
)

Halloween Time!

Home for the weekend because I had to get an upper GI endoscopy yesterday (a tube/camera stuck down my esophagus). I now have a severely sore throat so the Halloween fun will be limited tonight. HOWEVER, I have a super-fun Anna Wintour costume to wear, so I will def post pics of that later. Went to Postino's for dinner with my dad last night and getting the nails done with mom today. Would be an amazingly relaxing weekend if I didn't have a huge research paper to finish by the time I get home...

WORE YESTERDAY:

LF White Boyfriend Blazer


3 Dots Black/Gray Striped Tee (in the t-shirt longer style, not this cropped sweater one; mine is super old from Bliss boutique in Phoenix)


Love Quotes Black Scarf


Current/Elliott Gray Skinnies (w/knee holes)


Zara Studded Sandals

Everywhere You Look, Everywhere There's a Heart

Been studying my brains out for 3 days straight and I'm still knee-deep in it - 2 midterms and 1 paper to go. Ready to bust outta here! My old laptop is finally ready to be picked up at Bestbuy so we shall see what I decided to do with that sucker. It for some reason decided to climb back up into the 80s and 90s in LA this week so any winter-clothing plans are dead.

Coming home for Halloween but no one seems to have any concrete plans so I'm hoping the night isn't a bust because I kind of enjoy my costume a little too much. However I will be getting my stomach scoped the day before so drinking may be out of the question....

The Gossip is playing a free show at Amoeba Records on Sunset tonight and once again, I'm missing out on fun-ness because of school priorities... The chance to ogle Beth Ditto in person should take precedent over a ten-page research paper, don't you agree? Too bad I'm a goodie-goodie at heart that would never dream of shirking responsibilities for drunken debauchery... hehe. Right?

WEARING:

American Apparel Gray Racerback Tank


7 For All Mankind Distressed Denim Short


American Apparel Black Tights (under shorts)



Minnetonka Moccasin Booties


And Heaps-O-Bracelets, as per usual...

Her Wig is Too Tight, It's Squeezing Her Brain

Wearing a dress I lurrrve and having a lovely day because tomorrow and Sunday are going to be spent writing and studyyyying for my FOUR midterms and 10-page long paper due next week. Barf. I can't decide which is worse; grad school homework or the thought of actually having to get a real job.

Going to hit up Zara and the boutiques around me that I have neglected since last spring and then going to dinner with my number 1 school bestie at La Grande Orange in Santa Monica because it reminds us of home. A taste of Phoenix if you will. I have major calluses reminiscent of gymnastics days on my hands from Crossfit this week - my hands are so not Dove-soft. This may be part of the reason why people use to call me man-hands when I was younger.... True story.

Ps. My new fave snackerooni/lunch/whenever is a Trader Joe's wheat pita stuffed with Trader Joe's garlic hummus and shredded crunchy veggies. I've been using TJ's broccoli slaw (just shredded carrots and broccoli) and shredded red cabbage. I cannot STAND soggy veggies. But these stay nice and crisp. SO. GOOD.

WEARING:

Rag & Bone Floral Maxi Dress (from the sadly-over Fred Segal sale)


3.1 Phillip Lim Blazer


Dolce Vita Gladiator Sandals (got these over the summer for $18 at Nordstrom Last Chance but I don't think I've put them on the blog yet)

Take that MAC!

So I'm enjoying my new HP laptop much more because that in the last week, it was on both One Tree Hill and Desperate Housewives. If its good enough for Brook Davis to helm the Clothes over Bros empire, its good enough for me.

PS. I love this site - www.1000awesomethings.com
My Favorites:

#680 Falling asleep when the plane takes off and waking up when it lands

#681 Realizing that you’re going to be in the background of someone’s picture and smiling at the last second

#685 Taking the stairs beside somebody taking the escalator

And many, many more.

WEARING:

Scottish Hippie Wedding

Had an amazingggg but short time in Scotland - castles, kilts, wine, fresh food, runs around the village, chocolate, and TOPSHOP.




My outfits were a little boring - it was COLD and drizzzly so I just brought flannels, leggings and assorted boots and wellies. One fun thing was my 3.1 Phillip Lim Tweed Trench that I got a few months ago at Nordstrom Rack Designer Shop for.... $65. Its a $1000 trench coat people.
Soak it in.


Had a midterm to study for as soon as I got home, so I put off unpacking, grocery shopping and cleaning for studying yesterday. I have 4 midterms next week so this weekend is going to be a BLAST.

WORE:

Vince Sweater (Nordstrom Rack Designer Shop during the summer for like $20)


LA Made White Tunic


Target Ripped Leggings (I ripped a couple pairs in different ways for myself)

Rain Makes Me Sleeeeeepy

Its been raining all day here in lalaland and I literally had to tear myself away from my bed today to get all the things I need to get done before I go to SCOTLAND on Thursday! My cousin is getting married and I am stoked for my lil weekend getaway.

I'm sorry Rachel Zoe, but I cannot get on board with fur vests. While they look ever so boho chic on you, my 95-lb fashion darling, I have a hunch that they would just make me look like a boxy sasquatch. I will not be logging on to QVC when these puppies come out....
