squirrel food



Here I am! Look at me! See my dress? It's by Esprit! And yes, this is in my new room and, yes, I caved and painted my walls yellow. Again. After painting them mint green. And hating it. Siiiiiiiiigh. Anyways, it's all over now, and I'm working on putting the whole mess behind me by instead focusing my powers of frustration on re-assembling my awesome second hand IKEA craigslist bed. Which came complete with about 18 missing Swedish screws. So. Much. Fun.

On a lighter note, here are some of the best presents I have received from some of the very best givers of late:


My Technicolor Dream Moose Bag, a gift from Sweden.


The most amazing vintage bowtie, a gift from Sherbet Tone.


The most perfect acorn, a gift from a tree.

P.S. Don't forget, you can indeed

yellow walls how awesome!
great acorn. I never find good acorns. they are usually all trod on

Wow, I am astounded that you not only painted your walls the second you moved into a new place, but you RE-PAINTED them already.

Freals, I (and my type B personality) have lived in my place for almost six months now and, though I swore this would finally be the apartment that I paint, I still put it off. I think I have a color commitment issue...

Is the title a reference to the recent Colbert Report?

I'm so glad you love that bow tie as much as I'd hoped you would! And the moose bag is pretty much amazing!

Simply adore the way you layer your clothing. The vest is a great contrast to the otherwise dark outfit.

Hellooo! I love your outfit, your walls and your blog. I searched and searched this year for a little knitted vest like yours in this picture, but couldn't find one second hand.. and I'm not supposed to buy new this year. So I'll just have to sit here and ogle at how cute you look in yours!

Hey,
Your beautiful vintage bow tie has given me the idea of making my own from the numerous pieces of ribbon I have lying around.

I have been keeping an eye on your blog for awhile now and just wanted to say its great.

It has partly inspired me to make my own fashion type blog. If interested:http://wrhd.blogspot.com/

Thanks,
Wash. Rinse. Hang to Dry.

p.s. I'm visiting NYC soon. Have any favourite places to suggest?

Those boots rock.

End of story.

LuVvy said...

what a lovely scarf! Now it goes splendidly with your walls!

did you thrift the esprit dress??

Ringo, have a banana! said...

I bought the dress at a buy/sell/trade place, not quite thrifting, but also not new!
