P▲G▲N

I was standing in line at Coffee Bean the other day, wearing this multi-layered outfit of cotton, wool, viscose, and leather, when a friend of mine broke the ice and asked what on earth theme I was attempting to master. Instead of letting me provide a detailed analysis of my own ensemble, we consulted the baristo and asked for his guess on my arrangement. He was stumped. Others surmised 'scarecrow', 'picnic hippie', and 'gardening cowgirl'. None of those are what I had in mind when I dressed myself that morning, but it's possible that every interpretation is to some extent 'correct' regardless of my intentions. I don't wear a sign around my neck explaining my thought processes to passerby. It's up to everybody else to 'make of it what they will'. And I'm delighted to accept those hypotheses.

But the truth is, my intended theme was 'free-spirited pagan' slash 'organic witch' slash 'sun-worshiping earth girl'.





FROM TOP TO BOTTOM:
Floppy hat- August for Nordstrom
Scarf- Anthropologie
Jacket- My Tribe
Skirt- Nordstrom
Ankle boots- Steve Madden

I know my face looks funny in the last picture, but that's okay. You don't have to be 'hawt' to be fashionable. Clothes can compensate for all your weaknesses ;)

My inspiration for this outfit was obviously Tavi and her mystical forest rompings.

We don't have forests here in Las Vegas so I had to settle for my condo's woodsy courtyard instead. ANYWHO, I am looking to get a pair of clogs, platforms, and wedges in the near future. Considering publishing my current loose-leaf shopping list to the internet but I'm not sure what sort of criticism that may entail. Interested? Yes? No? Completely indifferent to my online existence and wondering how you even ended up on this webpage in the first place? Feel free to send me an email with incisive feedback.

At last.


Everything is infinite,
