grocery shopping….blah!!

Wearing a thrifted polyester sundress, Lucky brand ombre cardigan, soft buttery wrap belt by unknown designer, and Emanuel Ungaro branch heels.
I look sooo natural and laid-back in this picture….NOT!! Sometimes it is so hard to not look like a freak in front of the camera! You only have ten seconds between the time you press that button and the time the timer goes off and snaps you!! 
I didn't go anywhere today. Wait thats a big lie, I went to the grocery store to buy tea tonight!! Sometimes life is so boring! But that is high school in suburbia, right?! 

But hey in Paris its burning! Wish I was there!!

Even when life is dull, nothing puts a spring in your step like a sick pair of shoes!!
Tonight those shoes would be…..the Emanuel Ungaro branch heels.

    The belt idea is inspired by the new Balenciaga collection maybe? ;-) Anyways, very cool ensemble, I wish they made shoes for guys that cool!

    can you show us how you tie your belt? I have a belt that’s meant to be worn that way but I can’t seem to tie it properly without it looking very awkward. thanks!

    Hello Jane !
    I’m one of your French readers =)
    You’re right, Paris is really exciting right now !!! Even if I can’t go to the fashion shows, it’s still so funny to walk in the “Jardin des Tuileries” and to see all these famous people… And these georgous clothes ^_~
    But even if they are beautiful (and even more than that, I really can’t deny it, I could kill for some outfits :p) I could say some are so similar to the others than it can be quite boring sometimes (especially the Voguettes. Their clothes are gorgous but so… Well… Dark !). It could be fun if some of them could show a little something more special and a little “je-ne-sais-quoi”. Like you do in your own outfits and pictures =)
    It was just to tell you that I’m madly in love with your shoes collection (you’re soooo lucky !!!) and that when you’re looking to Paris, Parisian girls are looking to you to find inspiration for their looks ^_~
    Wish you that one day you’ll be in the front row of a Parisian show !
    PS : if there’s some mistakes, sorry for my English :s
