calivintage 's Thoughts:

who knew that i’d catch the military frenzy? perhaps it’s those new phillip lim glasses that i still haven’t gotten back from the optometrist. seriously, month’s long anticipation anyone? this has taken far too long! i need my nerdy glasses!!!

anywho, this here is a fancy jacket i found at an estate sale a couple of weeks ago. it’s got great details: red contrast piping, cropped fit, and cute puff sleeves! oh, i will forever and ever love puff sleeves!!!! sigh.

and can i just complain for a minute? my steve madden platforms are broken! arg, i should really know better than to buy shoes from them, especially when said pair of shoes are close to two hundred dollars. as if they are any better quality than their less expensive styles. the leather is too thin! the little loop in the back that holds the ankle strap just ripped. the leather ripped, because it is paper thin. boo. i’m thinking i should contact the company and see what they say about that.

oh when will i learn?

but who cares? the weather is lovely and my brother is still visiting and i’m thinking about getting a new kitten and everything is right in the world, really.

OH! and p.s. it has just been called to my attention that the link to my blog on the left wasn’t working. i have now fixed it. and you can visit my blogger any old time. i have more than just my outfits on it and i usually write completely different stuff on there to keep it interesting. or click here.

that jacket is amazing, i'm jealous! especially because it's 2 of my 3 favorite colors :P that sucks about your shoes breaking, but I bet a cobbler/shoe repair shop could fix it.

I have a million complaints about Steve Madden shoes too! For one, they're rarely ever comfortable. Yet, I continue to buy them. Love the jacket! Great find.
