Best of… April 12

I take back everything I said about Scott.  He’s done some unbelievable portraits of handsome men this past month and put me right in my place.  These images are nothing to do with fashion, yet everything to do with fashion at the same time.  Do you know what I mean? (I imagine you blank-staring me right now).

More leather.  Black leather.

It’s not all black anymore- I’ve added some colour into my life with bright denims. I’ll be needing some more grungy t-shirts to go with.  Any recommendations?  I had my heart set on this one, but it’s all sold out!  Perhaps its a sign I need to steer clear of grunge for a while- I may be taking the term shabby chic too literally.

This is more the kind of inspiration I need.  And honestly, it wouldn’t kill me to look a little more polished!

What I have done is developed a rather serious obsession with lace (lace is prim and proper, you know).  I bought another pair of lace shorts impulsively and I’ll guiltily admit that I don’t exactly need two pairs of lace short-shorts.

Leopard-print short-shorts though… I don’t even have one pair of those.

In other (completely unrelated) news, I just bought a bicycle.  It was one of my new year’s resolutions!
