Fashion: In the Sunlight

These American Apparel riding pants are my favorite because when I wear them to dinner they stretch very comfortably. I wore these on Fat Tuesday to celebrate gluttony at one of my favorite places, the Bronx Alehouse. They afforded lots of stretch to accommodate fried food and beer, plus they’re also cute and extremely versatile. My favorite thing to wear is probably a good pair of stretchy black pants. Who needs jeans? Not I. I wore them with a simple and artfully wrinkled (artfully because I didn’t iron it) white blouse. Also pictured are my favorite shoes, by Jeffrey Campbell.

I’m currently growing out my temperamental bangs, and they’re not going down without a fight. Check back in three months when my hair looks good again.  IMG_4626 IMG_4628 IMG_4646 IMG_4648

Pull out from the depths those thoughts that you do not understand, and spread them out in the sunlight and know the meaning of them. — E.M. Forster, A Room With a View 

Fashion: Heart of the Night

Everything is blooming most recklessly. If it were voices instead of colors, there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night. –Rainer Maria Rilke

I wore this outfit to a Walk Off the Earth concert at the end of January. They put on an amazing show; they’re such musical innovators in the way they manipulate conventions and use unusual instruments like an electric toothbrush to create distinctive sounds! They also have a great stage presence and are so energetic and enthusiastic. It was the second time I’ve seen them but it certainly won’t be the last!

This floral kimono is quickly becoming one of my favorite items in my closet. Floral, red, and pink, this item screams me. Get it at Forever 21! They also have it in a mustard yellow/cream floral pattern I just may buy soon! I can’t get enough floral patterns to satisfy my obsession.
