tiger's blood in summer heat.






zara dress, random belt, vintage purse, joie sandals, rimo ring, collapsed sno cone from the sno shack.

No, I didn't go hunting after tigers at the local park because I thought that would be a nice form of exercise when it's a hundred and ten degrees...tiger's blood happens to be a rather deliciously fruity sno cone flavor which I picked because the slightly morbid name gives you absolutely no clue what flavor you're actually ordering. Nothing like a little mystery.
These are my current favorite shoes which I found during my (still ongoing) hunt through summer sale items. I don't know about you but I've never seen sandals quite like these, which is exactly why I snatched them up. I don't even know if these classify as sandals 100%, I see them as the offspring of a sandal and an oxford which got attacked by a pair of scissors intent on making shapes. But that's why I love them.

...and OF COURSE the moment I make up my mind about what's my favourite accessory here - the purse and I scroll down to the caption and what do I see? "a vintage purse"!!! AAA, this is so frustrating :)))

On a serious note, this purse is just amazing. However, the sandals are cool, too. They seem like something that's both hippie and gareth-pugh-esque. If that makes ANY sense, that is :)

Brianna said...

Ha, I love how you describe how that sandal came to be :)

oo yes i love those sandals of yours !! im looking for one like that as well.. but they're sooo hard to find though.. the designs are usually either too fancy or whatever.. yours are fancy enough but not too fancy that it catches so much attention from other people :)
