condense and conserve

02-03-1002-03-10
acne top + trousers, h&m wedges

So guess who finally bought that Acne top she was whining about a couple months back? I guess patience pays off since I ended up buying it 50% off at La Garconne. I also scored the perfect black trousers in the form of these Acne ones which are actually wool and not cotton! I'm really starting to get the hang of buying things I can wear over and over again rather than just a handful of times. I can easily see myself wearing both of these items in various ways without growing tired of them (which is something I've always had a problem with since I'm so fickle about clothes). Restraining myself takes a good deal of work especially when I go shopping with others but at least I'm getting somewhere. I'm still cleaning out my closet and just did a mass post of things I REALLY want to get rid of so uhh, go check that out? The latest post will only be up for a week and after that I'm donating everything in the post.

What else, what else? I'm getting really restless with my hair and have been trying new things with it. Today's look is making me really wish I'd taken the plunge and cut my hair short this past break. I even tried pinning my bangs back but didn't have the courage to wear it out... some habits I just can't let go of. I've had fringe for most of my life and it's hard to imagine exposing my forehead to anyone outside my apartment. Oh well.

I think you should take the plunge and cut your hair short! You can definitely pull off short hair. Why not take up the advantages of being thin hehe.

Aimee said...

I am coveting your lipstick.

alison said...

I remember you mentioning the shirt a while back, so glad to see you got it, looks wonderful! And the bang thing...I know what you mean, haha, I don't think I'll ever gather up the courage to wear my bangs pinned back, they're like my security blanket, lol. But you look gorgeous with them pinned in the last photo! <3

Gela said...

Jessica Sue said...

You're so beautiful!

I've been thinking about cutting my hair short, but I keep convincing myself I'll just wait 'til it warms up. It seems so scary, even though it's just hair!

I'm totally restraining myself on buying things, too. My closet is just full of stuff that I never seem to wear. UGH.

sharon said...

beautiful

i have problems with the bangs too, i always feel really naked when i pin them up. i think you look good though

augustalolita said...

very cute shirt!! love your hair!!

Kaylalala said...

I'm pretty sure you would still be beautiful even if you bleached your hair and grew it out past your bum.

Cute hair, cute makeup, cute outfit, you're just cute.

Mani said...

krvillanueva said...

Could you tell me what season are your H&M wedges from? And this may be totally random ...but for the newest GAP campaign I have been dying to find the neutral beige booties worn by the model. But GAP doesn't sell them and I don't know how to figure out where to get them. If anybody knows pleaseee tell me.

gracias.

Annette said...

Nooooooo, don't cut it off!
You've got such beautiful long hair.
There are not many people with hair like yours :/

It looks beautiful in these pictures as well, and I think you could wear it short too, but don't cut it off!!
I also like your outfit a lot :)

And I'm following your blog now for such a long time, and it's amazing how in the beginning you didn't get comments at all or only a few and now.. wooooow!
But well, there is a reason for that, you've always got something interesting to tell or some nice pictures. :)
I think it's actually because everyone is jealous of that food you are consuming :D

Anonymous said...

No, keep your hair long! As cute as this style looks, it's much more versatile to have long hair that you can do stuff like this too.

Amazingly styled outfit, as always.

I never liked that style of trousers but after seeing this outfit I'm obsessed with getting a pair. Well, I'm at least eager to try on a pair myself and hopeful that they'll look that way on me.

[color=#666666]Hi

With the continuing rise in popularity of myspace poker chips as a virtual currency in facebook texas holdem poker game a lot of thieves have engaged themselves, who try their best to trick unsuspecting players out of their hard earned facebook poker chips. All over the internet forums are littered with posts by innocent people who have had their chips stolen. Nothing is as sorry state as logging to Facebook or MySpace to play a few hands of poker only to find that your account is hacked and your poker chips are gone.[/color]

[url=http://www.chipshut.com][img]http://www.chipshut.com/img/facebook-poker-chips-hut.jpg[/img][/url]

[color=#666666]Follow these tips to keep your facebook poker chips safe:

Never give your password to a stranger: Trust is a delicate thing that takes a long time to build but only second to destroy. You may meet a pretending star in poker room and you are friends with him/her. He/she will keep interacting with you days before playing her trick. So be carefull enough to protect your login credentials to yourself, else this may lead to disaster.

Be careful about what you download: Professional online gamers are looking for cheats or hacks for the games they play in order to give them an edge on their opponents. Poker is no different and there are plenty of sites on the internet giving free downloads for facebook poker cheats and hacks for those brave enough to download and install them. But many of these so called facebook poker cheats have viruses or trojan programs. The moment you install any of these your computer is at the risk of attacks by the creator of the program. He can then have access to vital information that you access from your computer. Leaving your facebook poker account at risk of been hacked. If you never downloaded any of these programs then you’re probably safe, and if you have then you should run a spyware detection program. The best move will be for get your computer formatted to avoid any loop holes.

Phishing Links: This way of hacking has been thee for quite sometime now. Phishers send legitimate and official looking emails to your inbox. When you open them you are asked to click on the link and login in order to save your account or win free facebook poker chips, but in reality you are logging into a fake site that sends your information off to the phisher who made it. Before you find it out, its too late to react and they would have already broken into your account and emptied it of any facebook poker chips that you may have.

YouTube scams: If you do a search on youtube for facebook poker cheats, zynga poker hacks, or free facebook poker chips you’ll find hundreds of videos on the topic. More than 90% of them are made by idiots hoping to convince you to send them your account information. They range from slightly clever to completely moronic.

Image Photo Having Exe Embedded In it: This one is hard to catch. This is the latest fashion that is used by hacker, you will be asked to share family photo's. When you open their photo, that will innitiate an exe in the background which will steal all your information and send to the mastermind behin it. So be careful with whom you share photos.

Hope these tips help you saving your chips.

hihi annabel!

i really love those trousers...and the fact that you said they're WOOL makes me love them even more. they remind of mens wear from the 50s, which i am a total dork for.

you're so pretty! if you're going to cut your hair short, be 100% sure you want to, because if you're used to having long hair...believe me, it'll be a shock once its cut. I chopped off my hair after always having it past my back for ten years, and i regret it. I'm still growing it out and its taking FOREV

Hey I live in the valley and remember you said that you go to a lady that cuts your bangs out in pasadena. I was wondering if you could give me her number,. every time I get mine bangs cut, it comes out all messed up and so once in awhile I go and spend the big bunks to get it cut, but would like to go to someone who can do a good job but is it also cheap.

I adore your bangs, don't change a thing! I have been thinking about cutting some myself but I always feel like I end up looking like I'm 12 when I do end up letting the stylist chop away. You wear them beautifully.
