Plaid Madness

Having declared it unofficial plaid week, I thought I’d follow through with my words and keep the plaid theme going. Argyle counts as plaid, right? It also gives me another chance to try my hands (or more exactly, my legs) at patterned tights. Last time I wore these tights I made the mistake of overthinking it, so this time I kept the rest of the outfit simple, because the tights are so focus-pulling.

In other news, I just added a couple of new items to my Smashion store. I’m slowly adding more stuff as I clean out my closet, so check it out, see if there’s anything you like. Hurry though, the store will only be open until early May!

When The Wind Picked Up

We’re having a mini heat wave here, due to what I think is the Santa Ana winds (when I looked it up, I realized that in Vietnam we have the same kind of hot, dry wind; only we call it “Laotian wind” because it blows in from Laos.) Thankfully it’s only for two days; it will cool down again by the weekend. And to think, this time last week it was all rainy and nice. Oh LA weather, what are we going to do with you?

Confession: I’m wearing boots despite of the heat because my legs are… shall we say, the opposite of follicly challenged 😛 I only bring out the shaving kit when I absolutely have to, so there’s no point now, when I know I’m going to be wearing tights again soon.
