What I’m Wearing
* White and Warren gray crocheted dress from GILTseen here
* Vintage black silk cami worn under
* J Brand ink Lovestory bellbottom jeans …last seen here
* Victoria’s Secret black boyfriend cardigan
* Michael Antonio snakeskin printed leather wedges {ancient}
* Kenneth Jay Lane turquoise drop earrings from GILT
* Vintage Matisse turquoise necklace found on Ebay …last worn here backwards with the copper side up
* old Tom Ford Yvette sunglasses
* Louis Vuitton medium Speedy …and bored of it now …on the hunt for a new bag starting now.

Yet again it was chilly until about 3pm today. I hear you NYers are having a massive heat wave …um, I know this is a strange request coming from LA but do you mind sending the sun back our way? Please?

Stepping into the elevator after work, a man smiled at me then continued to pretend he was busy on his blackberry …then out of nowhere exclaims “A rabbit’s foot!?! I haven’t seen one of those in years!” …then walked out. I laughed to be polite but thought, really? Even if he hadn’t seen on in years, {and I would refer to mine as vintage because it is indeed very old} was it really that insane to see a rabbit’s foot?

    PS – In Ontario, Canada (above NY) we are having a MASSIVE heatwave too. It’s unbearable – it’s SOOOO humid and over 100 degrees everyday!

    I love the touches of turquoise against the neutral of the rest of the outfit. This set of photos also came out beautifully – do you photoshop any of these, or put them up as is?

    Is it not taboo in the U.S to wear fur or sport parts of dead animals as accessories? Perhaps his comment was an ethical exclamation; albeit indirect.

    I always admire your D.I.Y clothing, such creativity. By the way, I have simulated a ruffled scarf you made out of an old tartan one. Many people admire and comment on it. Thanks

    No, L.A.!
    I want to keep our heat! ;)

    Love the crochet…and the word “crochet”…awesome!

    Rabbit’s FOOT??!!
    Maybe he’s super superstitious…and he thought you were a voodoo preistess…i mean, the earrings and necklace DO kinda support this assumption…
    …or maybe he wanted to get in yo’ pants…haa haa!

    Great pick-up line:
    “Rabbit’s foot?! I haven’t seen one of those in years! Wanna bang?”

    Haa haa haa!

    What he meant was, “Why bother? I’m old enough to be her grandfather. But let’s see if she takes the bait…” What he was really thinking was, “A rabbit’s foot is all we’ll ever have in common because she’s too young for me to keep up with.”
    I once had a guy tell me some of the same, except it was on a day I was wearing all white. “I didn’t know any women wore all white anymore…” I scoffed and walked out of the elevator, “Maybe not any women over 80, Pops…” Give the old fart a thrill…LOL

    The necklace and earrings are gorg! I’m working on getting some of this heat out to you – the 100+ degree days are getting old (not to mention limiting my wardrobe choices!). Enjoy your weekend :)
