free Colt 45*

Somewhere between the morning after a night out and the afternoon you opened up that box of crap you sent yourself from Washington...


...you might just find yourself wandering around someone's alley wearing 90's technicolor ski sunglasses, a plaid dress and a sassy look on your face. Trust me, it's been known to happen.

*Ok, I feel like this post and its title run the unacceptable risk of making me sound waaay more badass than I really am. The previous night in question in fact consisted of me drinking one single free Colt 45, which tasted like an ashtray someone had vomited in, at which point I steadfastly insisted on retiring into the arms of a double hot fudge brownie sundae and Drop Dead Fred on the television. So what? So there.

Haha. somehow your evening sounds fierce, anyway. I for my part would have liked the double hot fudge brwonie sundae part the best. And the outfit I really, really like - somehow it works very well.

i know this is ot, but i posted it in a comment on your flickr only to realize you don't really use it any more. so my question is, do you sew your jeans with a sewing machine or by hand?

Nothing Elegant said...

i'm pretty sure drop dead fred is pretty bad ass. phoebe cates and her green-suited, red-haired imaginary friend...very bad ass indeed.

Your skirt is perfect for the transition to fall. it will look great with tights and boots.

Oof, I'm sorry I got way behind on this thread!

Cassandra-Anne, I do hand sew my jeans skinnier, because I can never ever find pairs that fit me AND are properly skinny. Never. Ever. I hate pants.

Also, I have now linked both Milk Children and Fashion Rubies, you two!
