so yes! i made it to California. it wasn’t easy, especially the goodbyes (i miss you bad, Vancouver!) but i’m here and i think my head’s on straight anyway. well, mostly straight.

i haven’t had time to do any shopping for a while (even though my canadian dollars are almost on par with american now!), but i did go to an awesome folk show on saturday. it was the lovely and talented Mariee Sioux, and along with an amazing bell-like voice and agile pixie hands, she had beautiful cream and turquoise organic cotton t-shirts on sale. Eve and i both bought one.

sorry about the pigeon-toes, i think my feet just automatically do that. it’s a side effect of hours spent perusing wardrobe remix.
Mariee Sioux american apparel tee: $15
grey Target jeans: $16
red H&M oxford canvas shoes: $20
chiffon graphic print scarf: $2
and i cannot believe i spent this much on a…
pleather Le Chateau bomber:$80,
especially when i now have a pretty rad actual leather jacket collection. resistance was futile.

Oh and Congratulations to Rita H, who won the first Painfully Hip giveaway ever, that gorgeous silver bracelet from the generous sisters at Lady Language! you lucky little… yaaaay Rita!

  • glad you made it safe, looks like you’re settling in! oh california, i wish i were with you and not the ridiculous east coast!

  • dude, i so know what you mean about the pigeon-toe thing and wardrobe remix. it’s to the point where i never even like the pictures i submit unless i’m standing all awkward-like. what is it about that that looks so right? just power of suggestion? or do we all secretly want to be awesome japanese girls?

  • Great outfit. I find it so hard to be fashionable in jeans. You pull it off.

  • karinova

    Just like in the States, the pigeon-toe epidemic in Japan is an _affectation_. Almost no adult’s feet “automatically” do that. (Which is also why you almost never see guys standing like this, and rarely see anyone actually walking like this.) And _that’s_ why most people find it so unattractive: it’s _fake_.
    Poseur-ish, even. (Sorry.)

    Also, it’s driving doctors crazy: do this long enough and you really _will_ have painful hips!
    Like, forever.
    Just sayin’.

    Cute outfit, though! I love those shades.
