Zebras not included.

a late swim meet made both me and my outfit tired looking. apologies for the blurry mirror shot, i hate mirror shots (oh so myspace) but heyyyy. it's a picture. I played around with the outfit a bit more, the shirt out of the skirt with the belt tied haphazardly, and another look I used today was my 'zebra' sweater from a few posts back (picture here) over the shirt. It was more of a comfort thing and I liked how it clashed with the color of the skirt. Abigail was a bugger about it the entire day, though... so I'm going to wear it quite often just to annoy the crap out of her.

I am still in a style rut. Tommorow is a 2-Day schedule, meaning I don't have any teachers that will give me a detention for a dress code violation so I'm going to wear my ugliest possible leggings, if I can find an equally awesome skirt in my closet. I want to dress in the dark.

Hey thats a pretty good idea. Now if only I would actually get up before the sun to do that.....

Hum. Anyway, away from my ramblings and onto something you might actually enjoy reading about. My ebay watch list is a bit naked right now, but it's a pretty to look at nevertheless:

Vintage 70's micro mini button down leather high waisted skirt from brownbettievintage. It's an XS and I immediately thought of Zoe and her infatuation with button down skirts. BBV is a really good store and the end prices and relatively reasonable so if you want a button down, this is a great color.

I have other items on it as well, but nothing really worth posting as they usually end up in the $200+ range and watching them more than necessary makes me depressed.

But you know what makes me smile? Shoes.

Gladiators are huge for Spring and I don't actually own a pair I like, so I'm in the market for some. These two are ones I'm thinkin' are pretty snazzy:

1) Matt Bernson's line for SS08. The entire line is pretty nice for both men and women, my favorites are the KM Gladiator and Edin. Both are approx. $170. His site has store listings but no online store on which to order directly from him.
2) Would you believe me if I said those were from Old Navy? Yes, the chain store is moving up in the ranks. I love the Urban Explorer shoe collection. The braided gladiator sandal is actually on sale for $15 online, which is a healthy difference from the $170 shoes right next to them above. But with the cheap price tag comes cheaply made shoe, and people want a sturdy shoe, not glorified flip flops.

I want shoes like the runway shoes from the last post! Oh yes those sexy gladiators. Mhmhm. Pretty. Personally, I don't love peeptoe all that much but lately looking at the runway glads I'm thinking differently.

I would get started on my want list from Urban Outfitter's UK, but the price tag literally makes me cry and the want list is so long I would never get my looming pile of homework done before dawn. So, I guess this is goodbye for tonight! Bye. =]
