what time? cheap glasses time!
i'm growing tired of my current pair (and am also growing tired of the "aw your glasses match" comment i get constantly when i am with joe. for the record, they are not at all alike).
this time, though... i'm torn between these pairs. i think it might really be the birmingham for my fun pair and the jennifer for my "serious" pair.
what are your thoughts? has anyone followed my cheap glasses recommendation? if you haven't already, here's my early notes on the good sights* for cheap prescriptions.
birmingham | (i apologize because i saved this photo and now i can't find the link on the site) | jane | roxanne | jennifer
*this was by accident but i'm leaving it because it was fitting. get it? SIGHTS. like eyes. and glasses. time for bed.

i shot this photo last month in brussels and, since then, i've really developed a girl crush on blondie there. she has my dream hair and she just oozes cool. so i thought i'd take a stab at recreating her look. based on her back side.
topshop blazer | chan luu sequin tank | american eagle shorts | foley + corinna bag | acne shoes (sorry i can't stop!) | iosselliani cuff | annie costello brown (acb) necklace
forget anthropologie or kate spade. you need to sign up for kate miss's e-mails.
not only is she the creator of these super sought-after (super sought-after) necklaces, girlfriend's got a good eye for the visuals, too.
i opened up my e-mail to this gem no fewer than four seconds ago and had to share.
if only we could get her to do a paper catalog.
keep being awesome, kate.

i've been bad about posting, so i thought i'd feed you a little pretty to get you by.
via grain edit. (would love to get my hands on one of these.)
ed note: i feel awful for completely screwing up and not crediting the proper person. i am not sure what ryan boudinot does, but i am sure he is equally talented. to recap: amazing illustration by pietari posti. thanks to may for (knowingly or unknowingly, i am not sure) bringing this to my attention.

Messages in bottles, smoke signals, letters written in the sand; the modern equivalents are the funny, sad, beautiful, hopeful, hopeless, poetic posts on Missed Connections websites. Every day hundreds of strangers reach out to other strangers on the strength of a glance, a smile or a blue hat. Their messages have the lifespan of a butterfly. I'm trying to pin a few of them down.
i'd love to own this one. funny and pretty. i love.
p.s. this one kills me. i was a purple shirt. i looked offal. killing. me.
