CHILL

Oct 21, 2011


vintage army parka // Isabel Marant scarf // H&M dress // Acne boots

I'm in Lexington, KY at the moment for a wedding. It's so nice to step on a plane in one climate and step off in an entirely different one. It's definitely winter here...err, a California winter and I guess maybe a Kentucky fall. Right. It's gorgeous here...and slow. So slow. People actually have time to be polite. It's making me want to move out of LA even more than I always do. How nice to breathe in clean air. How nice to wear coats out of necessity and not fashion. How nice to be surrounded by history and charm. How nice.

On a slightly indirectly related note, two days before I was supposed to get on the plane, I lost my wallet after a dinner date. Well, briefly lost my wallet for about ten psychotic minutes. Definitely cool and calm on the outside but inner turmoil bubbling out of control with OCD madness. I've never lost my wallet in my life. IN MY LIFE. So I was more disappointed in myself than shocked at the actual loss. I had it getting into the car leaving the restaurant but discovered its absence after a stop at a nearby plaza for late night snacks. We went back to the restaurant and traced our steps with no luck. We almost gave up but thought we'd drive back to the nearby plaza and give the 711 one last look since that's where we were parked in front of. Hadn't initially crossed our minds since it's a notoriously sketchy 711 where a lot of homeless people congregate outside of. I think we just dismissed it accepting there was a 1% chance that if it was found, it would be turned in. I walked in more as a mechanical last ditch effort than actually hoping to find it, but there it was sitting on the counter. Never doubt the 1%.

My roommate has a different colored version of that scarf! It looks so good on you and I love the red/green version. That outfit is actually perfect. My wallet was lost recently and I had a very similar experience (went back to the Circle K, no luck). Losing wallets/phones/keys is maybe one of the more infuriating things in life.

"Never doubt the 1%" wow, that's really good advice. :)

Also, your braid is fantastic. I'll definitely try that out when my hair grows longer. :)

ahahaha i lost my purse once on the tube. And i instantly thought someone would take it and not return it, and i was ranting to my boyfriend how there will be no one and i mean no one who would be kind enough to hand it in. But a week later i get a call from the london underground saying it was handed in. i almost lost faith in humanity.

So how cold does it get in Cali? I see Rachel Zoe on TV wearing a fur coat all the time like it's freezing.

Waking up to rainy days-cool air-changing leaves-sunshine with a chill in your face, & knowing a definitive change in seasons is an amazing way to live. I recommend it.

Can we switch places then? Because I'm sick of the souf.

Also, if anyone said, "bless your heart," it's a very nicely masked southern insult.

That makes me want to make sure I have my wallet. I once knocked my toothbrush behind the sink and went completely apeshit. I know it isn't the same thing, but what I'm trying to communicate here is that the inner turmoil you experienced was more than justified; not OCD madness. Either that or I fly way off the handle. Eh.

I'm glad that you found your wallet.

Sophia said...

You own the most incredible vintage pieces. I'm still swooning over and still trying to find something similar to that fluffy off white one you have. Glad to see your back with more awesomeness :D. <3
