Where to Wear White. Wear to Where White?

I’ll be honest, I messed up the h’s in the above title quite a few times. So I just went with it.

Wearing white and staying white is no small feat. Especially when you are out for dinner or drinks or anywhere besides a clean room. That is empty, with no dust. Which means, me taking my new dress on a hiking expedition, albeit a paved one, was probably not the best idea. But, while out-a-wandering, I realized that the only thing I could do in this is mingle at a party that served fruit-salad without strawberries. So that’s something.

White is allegedly one of the “colors of the season” which means I have to have it, but it must also mean that fashion people don’t make dinner plans and don’t have friends. See, that’s me above, acting like a fashion person. You know, wearing footwear to impractical destinations and wandering around. “Hey friends, where are you? Do I have friends? Mom?”

Dressing in doesn’t always get you in with the in crowd, I guess. But I promise it won’t leave you wandering around the woods along either. What I can tell you is that head-to-toe white looks amazing and new, and this is coming from a person who is already head-to-toe white.  It works anywhere but a wedding. Cocktails, dinner parties, BBQs whatever. I am totally into it. In fact, there is a new white Panama hat sitting at my feet and I am trying to devise a way to photoshop it into these photos.

I’m also planning in my head, that has the hat on it now, a brunch date for my boyfriend to take me on so that I can put this lil’ number on again. I’ll add the hat and pre-sun-soak and we’ll see if I don’t make some friends then!

Close to the Vest

I just wanted to write a quick thank you to those of you who read and comment and like my blog. It seriously means the whole-wide-world to me that you tune in to read my incoherent rants, and look at pictures of shoes with my feet in them. I have read most of your work, you followers you, and you are all so talented, I can’t even believe I’m on your radar. I love you, even if I don’t know you. Getting the email that I have a new follower, or that someone liked a post just makes my day, so thank you all so much for your interest and support.

So this happened this weekend:

No I didn’t finish either of these. Swear. But only because I ate a burrito and ice cream before this.

That’s a face that says, Yes, I know I only hang out with boys, but I do not have the stomach of a boy. Although I do appreciate the sentiment. That’s also a pose that says, hey look! Little Phillip made it out to play. 

My best friend noted that I have been wearing vests a lot, and its true I have. Perhaps, I am harboring some resentment toward my two upper limbs. On account of a new workout regime, I haven’t been able to lift them above my shoulders, and damn it my hair isn’t up to its standard of cleanliness. On the other hand, it could just be because vests are not only a totally practical piece of transitional outerwear, but are also an automatic way to look like you can handle yourself in a fight. No? Ok, well I think I look cool.

Throw a biker vest over a summer dress. Mix any of these with a maxi skirt and a tank top. Anytime you have a boring totally classic t-shirt and jeans combo, any of these will take you up a notch.

The End of an Era–School not Blogging

It’s almost that time again, to graduate. Go from the top-of-the-top straight down to the bottom. Here’s to hopin’ Obama’s fiscal policy really turns this country around. Jobs! Jobs for everyone!

First things first though, I have to actually finish school and work and finals and that generally requires an element of focus, and so for that reason, I plan on taking a couple weeks off of blogging. You know, so I don’t fail, and then say “Well that was the best $200,000” that I ever spent, right…am I right?”

In the meantime, check out my tumblr, www.daughterelle.tumblr.com, where I will do my best to at least provide a visual documentation of my exciting happenings over the next few weeks.

Also, please be aware that this exercise has so far been J.V. level, and when I come back I am gunning for a varsity jacket. More specifically this one (Thakoon) and also I just really have a lot of ideas and a lot of spirit (how bout you) and really that’s all that I mean.

Enjoy the following few pieces of pure summer fabulousness, and rest assured that once finals are over, I will be extensively and constantly researching wine. All for you. I do it for you.
