Because a friend of mine commented on the inspiration for this post, “no one dresses like that in the Southwest,” I give you my outfit and declare it officially inspired by what I’ll label a fallible fashion fantasy. Blame Ralph Lauren! The bracelet and extraordinarily controversial fringed pouch (i.e. everyone thinks it is comically ugly, but I love it) are from Low. I tried a slightly more romantic feel for the photos in this post…I have to admit that being my own photographer is getting exhausting and definitely reaching the limits of its potential as a form of self-expression. Also, I’m pretty sure the people who work in the office above my courtyard think I have zero friends considering half the time they look down I’m sitting there laughing and smiling at nothing. It’s great!
