Tonight I'm excited to curl up on the couch and drink tea with some pastries (Rugelach, my favorite!) Here are a few new items that make me look very elegant and put together, even when I'm feeling the complete opposite of these things! Midterms and head-colds make me all awkward inside, but its nice to throw on some gaudy pearls, a polished coat, and my new prissy purse and fucking fake it!

I'm also on the look out for a vintage wool cloak...these jackets by Nadinoo are perfection.

That makes sense to me. I feel sleepy when I study in my pajamas. At least dressing up would make me feel purposeful :P

THose Nadinoo capes are brilliant!

Aw, thank you so much! I love your layout as well. And, I suppose that it is a sad fact of life that all tights will rip eventually.

I am very much digging your yellow coat. And yeah, I love it when things are mysteriously cheaper when you'd already psyched yourself up to paying the "full" Sally Ann price.. : )
