Who wants to be ordinary in a crazy, mixed up world?

If wrapping a scarf or bandana around my head didn’t give me headaches after prolonged periods, I’d wear them more often.

As Labor Day marks the end of summer, I’m ready to transition into my Fall wardrobe, though in LA, this won’t happen til circa November.  I’m eagerly awaiting the arrival of my latest purchases — the BB Dakota faux fur vest and Topshop studded suede bag.  Can’t wait to throw on the vest over a plain knit dress or my AA v-neck t-shirt with skinny jeans and knee-high boots.  The Topshop bag is just what I’ve been searching for to fill my drawstring bucket bag void.  With this bag selling out twice now, it better not disappoint.

Thanks so much for your sweet comments and encouraging words re: my lost inspiration.  I’m slowly regaining it after visiting all of your blogs.  Hope you are having a fabulous weekend!

    Lovely dress! ooops…and Ur gladiators are UNIQUE! 🙂

    Those sandals are sweet. Headbands are the coolest.

    ps. I don’t have one on my ribcage, but I’ve heard tattoos there hurt so bad! Not to scare you away…oh and once you get one, you’re gonna get at least one more…

    David Guetta is amazing! Love him! Love these photos and your shoes! I love the shape of the topshop bag that you ordered!

    I really like your headband ‘s “Hippie CHIC-issime” vibrancy, that your sulfurous polish declines on such a GLAMorous/exquisite way . . .
    ps: Ooooooh I Frankly think that your epitomesque “Smiling Sexy Freshness” is easily dedicated to cross Seasons on a Stainless mode, AND that this Dakota faux fur vest is MADE to be worn “next to the bare skin / à même la peau nue” (“Beads of sweat”) !!!!
    Frankly Hope you’re Well Dear.

    Damn, you rock the wrap… and I can absolutley relate to the headache-headband scenario. The price of style. Sigh. lol.

    And your recent acquisitions are, of course, amazing… can’t wait to see you style them.

    Looooove that dress! And the shoes are hot! I spotted a very similar bag in Zara the other day in case you need a second option. And I’ve been eying a few fur vests myself… just haven’t quite decided on the brand yet.

    By the way… just left you an award on my blog 🙂

    You are so stunningly gorgeous! I love your whole look! Oh an I am loving that fur vest. Too cute!

  34. September 13, 2009 at 7:40 pm

    Oh I can totally relate on the bandana thing. My head actually hurts if I wear ponytails for too long- so I’m always trapped my hair (worn down) getting tangled in my chap stick/lip gloss- blerg!

    I love the simplicity of this outfit on you and I’m totally envious of your awesome purchases! You and Mel have the best shopper eyes!

    Hope you have a great week, Becs!

  35. September 14, 2009 at 12:34 am
