Hearting Balenciaga...

It's an easy one. I know we all love it. But pre-fall was above and beyond. I think I died and went to high fashion heaven.

Sunday Morning

Hijoles Dieters! Goodness...
Last night was a furious release of a long week, complete with delicious, greasy food, wine, beer, and even late night cupcakes (red velvet from Billy's to be exact).

You can likely imagine the physical sensation I have in my head right now, pre-advil kick-in. I love seeing your comments below! What a lovely return. Gleeful blushing ensues...

Today I am on a mission to stock the closet with a couple of key "work-appropriate" pieces. A chore indeed. Being me, I am twisting the definition of this attire, but realized with dismay this week that try as I might to make my current wardrobe work, I'm the black sheep. Not a bad thing, but a gray sheep feels more desirable so early in my tenure.

I'll let you know what I find.

Above you see latte goodness. At my house, I've been starting my mornings with the following "New Year: New Intention for Wellness" (whether or not this intention is put into practice...)

Hence, coffee will never be deleted from the diet, but I make my latte with some Cafe Bustelo (budget friendly and eerily similar to the coffee they served at my language school in BCN), warm almond milk and agave.

The flavor is so strange and lush. Almost smokey, toasted, but still sweet and creamy. Good morning.

I Love These Pictures Too Much

Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin especially. Don't get the wrong idea dieters. Just an image for the archives.

Unlikely Perfection for $15

So below when I did that shoot, you'll see a flannel blue plaid shirt that I bought specifically for the shoot, with the intention of returning, only to keep. It was a gift to myself for the low price of $15, something that felt ok, even in a recession.depression or otherwise economically challenged time.

People. This is my favorite shirt ever. And it came from Old Navy in the Men's department, which is now my new favorite haunt. G bought me another, this time a 100% cotton, pinstriped beauty with classic tailored shirt detailing for (he told me) $10. I am absolutely in love and have decided there is nothing better than an oversize men's collared shirt this time of year. To hide the consumption, ward the cold and still feel sexy. Seriously.
