my new love



Let me make it clear that I strongly believe that I am in love with this vest. I don't think I've ever fallen so hard for a piece of clothing in my life. Hell, I feel stronger about this vest than I did some of my past boyfriends. I really need to prioritize.






Vest: Zara, Jeans: Cheap Monday, Boots: BCBGirl, Shirt: Express, Wreath: DIY, Bag: Chanel

Anyway, we had a whopping high of 58 degrees with clouds and scattered rain today. Great first day of summer? I also literally combed all of central Jersey trying to find a remote for my nikon d40 so I wouldn't have to keep using self timer to take photos (any blogger can agree with me that it is a pain. in. the. ass.). One camera shop, one specialty store and two best buys later, I returned home empty handed. However, I did place an order at this little camera store, so I should be getting a remote soon. YAY.

On a happier note, my cousin got engaged today. In bermuda. On a private beach her now-fiance rented out. The rock is supposed to be HUGE too. I kind of hate her right now. Kidding (not really).

On the phone:

Val: Oh my god, congrats. When's the wedding?
P: Next year. You better start dieting. NOW.

I love my family.

ahh you look amazing. I love your bag.

The F21 bag's strap is a looot longer. It went past my hip. I actually sewed it shorter because I cross-body bags to be super short :)

i saw that vest in zara and i was attracted to it but hesitant about buying it (considering i'm trying to be a very thrifty shopper... not..). looks great on you!

and that head piece.. so good!

I love your head piece/wreath. It reminds me of the ones from DVF. It makes your grunge look a lot more feminine. :)

I am desperately trying to figure out how to buy that vest. I live in Athens, Ga and tried to shop Zara online and had a helluva hard time figuring it out... Did you buy it at a store or online? Any leads are appreciated!
