More and more androgyny these days, I had to throw on some lipstick before I left the apartment to add some femininity, and why not, ya know? I had just left le beau's place in Brooklyn for a stroll about town and a (much needed) hair appointment.
This, for me, is one of those classic situations where you just have to not care about any burdens fashion might thrust upon you, because despite how heavy this bag is, I need to wear it out once in a while. My mom found it a bajillion years ago in an antique shop and she graciously bestowed it upon me when I was like, 13 I think? It was meant to hold surgical supplies at one point or another, so it's one sturdy carry-all! I had stayed over at le bf's place (from which I stole back my Warby Parker sunnies since my boyfriend has been constantly wearing them himself), so an overnight bag was necessary. I just feel learned and badass wearing this bag around and plopping it on my lap when I sit down on the train. It's just good to makes yourself feel like one cool cat every once in a while no matter how dorky you really are, and believe me, I'm on the dork-tastic side.
Also getting a walk around town are these brand spankin' new Topshop leopard print calf hair boots (say that 5 times fast!) was a good thing. These are my third pair of shoes with the calves' hair/leopard print combo and I can never have enough! They add just enough sauciness to basics while still keepin' it real chic, ya dig? They're also a +1 to my every-growing chelsea boot collection, which is always a good thing you can never have too many of. I keep getting a ton compliments on these boots from guys incidentally, like, I was in the Jcrew men's store on Broadway with Natalie & Dylana and I ended up having a whole conversation with the staff on where to get them, and all I had to say was "Right down the block!" Topshop really does have everything.
**So one of my new year's resolutions was to not look so pouty & weird in my blog photos (I'm gonna start calling it the "Del Rey"-yes, I went there), I swear it's because I'm not trying to laugh!
