And I'm Gonna Be High As A Kite By Then

Sorry I haven't been posting normally lately. It's not that I'm busy exactly, but just growing up and a little jaded/uninspired this winter. Looks like I'm going to stay an extra year at USC to get my MA in Environmental Studies, which is exciting. I've just been applying for a lot of research grants/study abroad trips lately that in my free time all I want to do is listen to music and knit and watch TV like an old woman.

This is going to be a bit of a stream-of-conciousness post:

1. Just got around to watching the Season 3 finale of Californication. (See? Lots of TV!)
I love David Duchovny. I love this show. The finale made me tear up a bit.

2. Related to the above - I've been listening to this a lot:

3. I got the Linda Farrow x Alexander Wang sunglass knock-offs posted on Luxirare, available here.

The real ones, obvs.

The knock-offs.

Not a perfect match, but pretty close. I think I may paint the tips silver, because that's kind of my favorite part. Makes them look more futuristic, less Keanu Reeves. I also wish the lenses weren't purple, but maybe I can figure out how to change that.

4. Apparently, these sunglasses are available from Hot Topic in a few colors. I found this when shopping for - shocker - nail polish! I had always written off Hot Topic as a lame/cheap store for wannabe goth middle schoolers, but I think now that they are targeting scenesters or whatever, their merchandise is really different... Check it out - Chanel ear knock offs (aka "Lady Gaga-inspired headband"):

I Fought The Law And The Law Won


Christian Siriano for Payless, Coast printed satin pump... Kind of intrigued. It's not a great looking shoe, but a nice idea.

If You Choose To Leave Me, I'll Understand

Julie Christie

I'm so out of inspiration right now. I'm getting anxious for summer and sun, so my style has been slipping back into hippie mode.
