Oh Darling Hearts

American Apparel

I know, I know, I'm seventy million years behind in obsessing about American Apparel.
Truth be told, I've been wearing AA for a couple of years now, visiting stores in London and San Francisco, loveloveloving their deep-v-tees and classic hooded sweatshirts.

At the moment, however, these items specifically make my shrivelled heart beat a little faster:

Nylon Tricot Blend Figure Skater Dress
$48 USD

California Fleece Cape
$65 USD
(the photo of the black was not as cute, but that, of course, would be my choice)

Fontana Vintage Sunglasses
$50 USD

Unisex Moustache Mask
$14 USD


p.s. the overtly sexual ads? don't bother me at all.
p.p.s. the allegations against Dov Charney make me purse my lips, wrinkle my eyebrows and say "hmmm" but allegations are allegations. Simple as that.
p.p.p.s I cannot cannot CANNOT buy another pair of sunglasses. If the weather is fine this weekend I will take photos and show you my collection. I think I have a pair for every day of the week. At least.

Word of the Day: Purlicue


Word of the Day: Purlicue


1. The space between the extended forefinger and thumb.
2. A flourish or curl at the end of a handwritten word. Also known as curlicue.
3. A discourse, especially its summarizing part.

I heart

Week Twenty-Two

365 in 2009!

Lemon Roll from Butlers, 2 forks.
Lemon Roll from Butler's, and two forks.

Monday: So cold I refuse to leave the office.
The weather was so horrendous that I refused to leave the complex at lunch time. Instead I broke into my emergency cup-a-soup stash. It was disgusting but warm.
Colourful post-it notes behind.

Tuesday: Tuesdays are never any good.
Tuesdays are rarely any good.

Wednesday: New Shoes with Cat
Kitten invades my new shoes photoshoot.
It only took me 10 months but I finally found some sneakers that I like and consider wearable.
Craig considers it a miracle.

Thursday: Amazing SunRise
A beautiful sunrise on budget day, seen from my office.

Friday: Contingency card.
On my lunch break I made Craig a birthday card contingency plan in case his present wasn't delivered in time.

Birthday Boy - Guitar Hero
Craig, concentrating, wearing a t-shirt I bought him and playing Guitar Hero Metallica which was his main present.
At this point in time? he is unaware of the surprise party I had organised for him!
