Falling About.



(In real life I buttoned the cardigan, which looked infinitely better, but I forgot.)

Last weekend, or maybe it was the one before (I lost count) I found myself facing a weekend with no work. With that in mind the boyfriend and I trudged down to NYC, a week earlier than Fashion Week (which I'm not really fashionable or confident enough for anyway--it was nice enough to see the tents up early and sort of ignored) and ran around like mad cats. I escaped with a few things from Anthropologie--this mildly insane bag that I'm not so certain I would have bought if it wasn't 9pm and trying to get back for a train. But it's quite nice, and sort of fall-ish. I also have to admit that I'm quite excited to see how loudly it clashes against my bright winter coats, or even the solid black ones. It's kind of hideous, but I think that is what makes it awesome.



Don't worry, of course I still keep fussing over totes (which I almost spelled as 'toats') since no matter what they seem to be best for me. I think I forgot to mention that I ended up with this one, even if I wanted to twigs on as well, as a lovely birthday present from the aforementioned boyfriend.

I also must apologize for the slowness in my blogging. Sadly we lost our little kitty this week, my baby girl, and I am a little heartbroken about her. It seems also that all of the tragic things happen in one week because we've also had some other terrible emergencies. I'll be back to blogging regularly ASAP, because nothing makes anyone feel quite as good (even just a little bit) or forget about being cat-less like a nice little outfit. I'm also, of course, inspired and excited by the weather, and I finally got my hands on that movie I posted about so long ago, and even though some of it isn't very good, it's a nice little film.

  2. i'm so sorry about your kitty. :'( i know my whole family would shut down for a while if we lost one of our lil babies.

    however, i do think that floral print bag is lovely! and the length of those black pants is perfect.

  9. I love both of your outfits! The striped yellow top in the first and the seafoam colors and knee socks in the second. And that purse! I LOVE it. If you ever get sick of it and consider selling it in the future, remember me!

    I am so so sorry about your cat. Animals are just so important. I'm positive she lived a wonderful life (especially with an owner like you!)

  14. I'm so sorry to hear about your little kitty. What a horrible experience, to lose your furry friend. I lost my pet rat - Poppy - a few weeks ago. Despite the fact that I only had her a few years, it was amazing how upsetting her death was. My heart goes out to you and your family. :(

    On a happier note, I quite adore the first picture - those pants are so Audrey, if you ask me! :)

  19. I'm so, so sorry about your kitty! :( Sending you condolences and lots of virtual hugs...

    I love both your outfits, and must admit: I really like that rather eccentric bag! ;) Sometimes those are just the sorts of oddball things to add a bit of pizazz to one's outfits!

  20. Aww, I'm sorry about your cat ):

    I love the first outfit, and the tote isn't hideous! Well, it is a little bit, but it's still really pretty in a way

  21. I'm sorry to hear about your kitty cat :'(

    I do sort of like the tackiness of the bag. And for The Edge of Love, the clothes look great but I've avoided the film, it looks terrible, plus Sienna Miller really x100 annoys me.

    I feel the same about fashion weeks, I feel my style isn't 'fierce' enough!!

  22. Both outfits are darling! You always mix pastels like a goddess, it's just beautiful :) (I also think the cardigan looks fine unbuttoned, but I'm sure it was lovely buttoned!)

    BTW, I featured you as my blogger of the week... haha, surprise! *^_^*

  23. I also forgot to say I'm sorry about your baby! :( Believe me, I know the feeling all too well...

    also, how do you like those minnie pants? i like how they look in the catalog but jcrew bottoms have never fit me right. did you get your regular size, and how is the stretchiness?

  25. Oh I've wanted to see that film for so long! It's on my Blockbuster list, which is moving along...slowly.

    I'm so sorry about her cat! I know how terrible it feels to lose a pet :(

  26. Oh, how awful... I am so sorry for the loss of your kitty. You have every right to hurt for a while. I am devastated when I lose a pet.

And your cat Baby, looks like a near twin of my cat Baby... it threw me off at first, I was like "Where the heck did she get a pic of my cat and how did she know her name?" Doppleganger! [Sorry for your loss, I know the feeling all too well]
