we are vagabonds, we travel without seatbelts on.







wilt sweater, old uniform shorts, loeffler randall sandals, vintage prada bag, gifted necklace, kara's accessories ring.

Grrr I can't believe things have been this hectic as of late, I really wish I was posting more as of right now. Between cleaning, packing for France, running errands, dealing with/fixing the hearing loss in my right ear, school reunions, preparation and dance practices for my friend's traditional Filipino 18th birthday debutante party, the actual party (which was immensely fun, but it took up the whole day, which I spent hobbling around in heels), and temporarily losing my memory card reader...I'm exhausted. Sorry for the long sentence.

I've been wanting to feature this bag for ages but somehow never got around to it until now. It's another one of those things I dug out of my mom's closet (my favorite place to shop)...and is a bit beat up but I only love it more. The necklace was a slightly early birthday present from my sister...her knowledge in my taste of jewelry is spot on. And the shorts were unappealing from a uniform point of view, until I cuffed them and thus sated my desire for a pair of pleated, high waisted, and cuffed khaki shorts. For now, at least.

And on France, as I said last post...unfortunately I'll have very little to no access to internet or even a computer during the trip, but I will be bringing back a little something (or somethings) for the g word...


(Which is giveaway, for the record. Not gorilla, gorgonzola, gadzookery, or gynotikolobomassophile.)
