What I’m Wearing
* Walter dress I just scored from Gilt/Fuse …the print on this dress reminds me so so much of the 90′s …and I love the shoulder details. I belted it with my favorite vintage skinny stretch belt.
* Vintage soft light beige blazer -tag: Kasper for ASL …last seen hereBEST seen here
* Forever 21 black cotton leggings
* House of Harlow 1960 black leather and gold necklace …last seen here …originally purchased last summer from Bloomingdales.com but now Amazon has it …I heart amazon. they seriously have everything. Did I mention I did 97% of my Christmas shopping on amazon.com? I only went to two actual shops by foot. rad, I know.
* Boutique 9 Charissa Over The Knee Boot -blackover the knee leather black boots with a wooden heel and buckles …these may just be my new favorites. I love the chunky wood heel and buckles which remind me equally of the 70′s and of Chloe, and I love that they cut my knee off instead of being completely over the knee and thigh high. They are perfect. If I wasn’t saving my husband’s hard earned $$ I’d get them in every color. {although they photograph much shinier than they are in reality ..all black leather does actually, and I don’t like it at all really}
* Tom Ford sunglasses …did I mention I finally got the ones I’ve been dying for and I don’t like them at all? I twittered it. I’m so sad because I was so in love with them …they just don’t look the way I want them to look …the search goes on.
* Ferragamo hobo
* Hair: slept in a French braid …took out with fingers/did not brush

The problem with finding great lighting and great locations to shoot my outfit shots is I end up liking too many of them because of the scenery and colors …however, I look pissed off or scared in almost every shot. I wasn’t either so I’m perplexed, literally. My first location was maybe my favorite. 1. Because it was new, 2. Because I was in love with the light. But immediately after setting my camera up on my car, a car pulled into the very next driveway and I didn’t really want an audience, so this was the one and only shot I got …walking back towards my car after spying them. That may have been the culprit for the bitchy looks in the next location …which actually had different but nice lighting as well.

The last local was near the top of Benedict Canyon …you’ve seen it before here and here. I always love how the sun reflects here in the late afternoon. It’s so magical.

so, apologies for the photo overload. LA was so pretty yesterday …and you know I love these boots!

* * * * *

This morning upon entering our parking garage at about 8:10am, a man yelled to me “It happened again” …his window was shattered and his car was rummaged. I immediately looked at mine …no broken glass but my alarm key wasn’t unlocking my door either. It was already open. But when I opened the door, the light didn’t come on as usual so I thought someone was still in there. {yes, I go straight to horror film scenarios} I left my bag on the seat and walked around and as I walked up my passenger side, I noticed my husband’s brand new-yet-to-have-plates-2010 Prius passenger window smashed. Glass all over. Ugh.

After running back upstairs and into the house, notifying husband, I got in my car and realized it had be rummaged as well. The reason they didn’t break the glass is because thanks to a faulty trunk/hatch/whatever which gets stuck without my realization leaving my car unlocked/unarmed of which I was unaware. They just opened the door. Items stolen: two pairs of Chanel sunglasses, silver Ray ban aviators, ipod cord {I never leave the ipod} and my work gate/key/opener. The only thing they took from my husband’s car, after causing $550 worth of damage were his shop keys …and my spare car key. Awesome.

1. They are clearly idiots. They had my car key in their possession and they left my car. 2. At least they didn’t steal my car 3. They could come back and take it tonight. 4. WTF?!?!?!? 5. We are 2 WEEKS FROM MOVING. 6. Anger. 7. Our move to the new house has just been scheduled for this weekend instead of next. 8. Hopefully. 9. LA was so pretty yesterday and now I just hate it again.

    We had our car window smashed and things stolen from it this past year. We felt so violated, and I was so angry. I’m sorry you had that experience, too. I would bet that they are pussies who just smash and grab…they probably wouldn’t even bother trying to steal a car (most likely because they don’t know to). Good luck with your move. It sounds like you just got more validation that this move is coming at the perfect time for you!

    I…Think…I..Need…those..boots..

    That break in the cars parked in the garage thing is going around.
    Just happened to family/friends who live in Honolulu. They never lock anything, and keep their wallet in their car wherever they are; just their general rule…though not any more.

    I never leave anything in my car, ever(not ever an old paper coffee cup), because that has happened to me before. Usually they take the whole car, and everything in it.

    Beware, these are desperate times for all kinds of folks.

    Oy Vey… That’s awful. I’m so sorry that you and your husband have to deal with that. Does your new house have a garage? My boyfriend and I live in a house in a quiet part of the valley and still, the one night he left his car out of the garage, someone ripped his fog lights off. It’s unfortunate that people sink to such lows. Good luck with the move!

    I had my truck broken into a month ago, they ripped off my tool set and all my music. The thing is that it was in our underground secured parking where we live, I blame our neighbor Kelly who leaves her trash outside her door to take out “later” and blares Chaka Khan all weekend.

    Sorry to hear about the vehicles being broken into and stuff taken.

    It is frustrating as all you can do is file a police report and a claim with your insurance. When several of us that attended a company party had our vehicles broken into and items stolen (they got my purse and they had even tried to take my son’s car seat) when the police were called all that we were told is to call back a certain number between 9am-5pm Monday-Friday to file a report to give our insurance company – they made no effort to try to catch the offenders. I believe what goes around comes around and someday the offenders will get theirs ten fold.

    I didn’t read all the comments to see if someone had suggested this, but if your husband (or you) know anything about cars, tonight, you could disable something under the hood (the battery might be a little obvious), but that way if someone tried to steal your car, it wouldn’t start. And I doubt they’d spend the time to pop the hood. Good luck!

    If your key was in HIS car, they may not know what car it opens… especially if your garage has lots of cars. If they were smart, they would not be smashing windows. Also, they would be super-stupid to return to the same place twice, but I would not bet on them, since most thieves get caught by repeating the same MO over and over.
