No doubt they still gots it. who knew helena was pushing 40? 
it's 1:30am, about 3 hours past my usual bedtime, and im overly caffeinated and can't fall asleep. flight home was fine, bla bla bla. 
i got a text from a cutie pie about 20 minutes ago, and it made me happy, although i tried to be cute back, and i think came off as creepy. story of my life.

Noot Seear looking hot. I have yet to see the new twilight movie, but we are all anticipating it. Who knows how good it actually is, but i'm sure it will be pretty entertaining. I really like her jewelry in the first pic, which is getting me excited to be taking a jewelry class in the spring. Then i can maybe pretend to be like the litter girls. Interesting weekend, weird weird dreams, happy to be going home soon for the holiday.

oh the weather outside...

if christmas came early... stella mccartney bra, perfect in every way. sheer, lace, soft grey color. The weather right now is giving me a headache. I can't handle it being 70 degrees one day and 35 the next. Finally made some cheddar broccoli soup to some positive reviews from M and my other pals. 
IN short: sautee onions in butter, add salt, pepper, garlic. add chopped broccoli and cover with chicken broth. in separate bowl, whisk milk and flour together, after about 10 minutes of simmering, add milk liquid, stir, add lots of EXTRA SHARP cheese. season to taste, enjoy.

shows and lentils

chloe spring 2010. Everything from leather shorts, big floppy coats and sheer white dresses to the always alluring texas tuxedo. Made some lentils last night and wasn't sure what i was doing, but it worked out:

Saute onion and 1 large carrot until soft.
Add 1 cup lentils, 2 cups water, basil, parsley, salt, pepper (all to taste), handful halved cherry tomatoes. Simmer for 20 minutes. 
*important note: remember to stir every once in a while, keep at low heat, and add more liquid if needed.
Add chopped spinach and 1 teaspoon lemon juice. 
Serve over rice and top with herbed goat cheese. 

I would have taken a picture if my camera didn't break and die :(
Cheers! A

in lurvvvvv

I love all the seasonal processed coffee creamers that have started to come out. I splurged on some of this delicious pumpkin spice creamer yesterday, and I already love it. 
Dawn, by Dario Marianelli (hence the theme of Pride and Prejudice) really made the entire movie. Instead of writing my paper on Jane Austen for class that is due today, I downloaded this song and listened to it over and over. 

Completely necessary lingerie from Agent Provocateur. I don't have a robe, and have been thinking about how useful they can be. In and out of showers, writing papers, drinking martinis, the usual. 
So it's officially fall, and it couldn't make me happier. Have already whipped out studded boots, layers and have successfully rolled out of bed 5 minutes before the start of class and still made it. All the tell tale signs that I have lost my focus.  Went to the grocery Sto' yesterday and was overjoyed with all the halloween decorations.

My search for a sweater coat such as this is not going well. I want it to be fall!!!!!! Sick of these humid days.

sex on a stick at nyfw

Betsey Johnson, spring 2010 nyfw
So M and I can re-live our prom fantasies above. 
I am really loving the sheer tights/cut-offs look with a short dress. This gives me some ideas, and also brings me back to my ballet days when everyone in studio would cut off their tights to hit knee length. Just add leotard and sweaters. 

i'm fairly certain that this exact dress was featured in showgirls. 

Jill Stuart, spring 2010 rtw, nyfw. 
I am fully aware that the above ensembles will look like street-wear on anyone who isn't a model. That said, I love it all.

Tuleh, spring 2010 rtw. This reminds me of renaissance women who would dress in men's pieces. Tight corsets, with top hats sort of thing. 

Mad Men-esque coats at Tuleh. 

Ohne Titel, spring 2010 rtw.
terrible cold. contemplating going to class in the next 2 minutes, or staying in bed to nap. Here are some pretty pictures to distract.

fashion week

alexander wang, spring 2010 rtw. 
ok, this hair is awesome. knee socks and leopard too??? i think i'm in love. the mom decided to tell me about all the great outfits she has been seeing thanks to nyfw. i must say it made me sad to be in the midwest :(
in other news, watched the vmas with the roomies in time to see kanye being a douche, and beyonce being an all around bad ass while performing single ladies.
