motley hue

October 26, 2011

i did it. i bought my first pair of jeans, in a shade other than indigo or black.

the inspiration was everywhere:

initially it was miss lily aldridge who perked my covet for jeans not blue. with legs stemming from locks of ombre, all it took was lily’s seductive stalk of said gams across my fall glossies clad in j. brand, maroon fancy, and suddenly color was on the brain.

i think it was this esoteric, somewhat sexually manipulated ad, by the australian designer ksubi, that finally put me over the edge to run out and actually purchase a pair of rusty, red denim. make a girl think she can fly? all the while looking like a supermodel? and in the meantime extinguish any aggression she’s been having lately with a honda rx7’s? hello!? sold!

that will be on my visa, please.”

shrewd marketing reigning victorious in the autumnal battle between wells fargo debit card vs. katie’s spending freeze.

on an aside, this is a super fun video of the spring 2011 campaign for j brand.

what is your favorite look?

the “ali magraw” literally produced drool out of my mouth.

wednesday happy to you m’loves!

weekend wrap-up

October 24, 2011

monday morning beautiful to you m’loves.

tell me, did the weekend compass your happy-map?

friday through sunday we had a house full of sick, and a calendar clad in iron.

even the beast started to adopt our mopey behavior. all three of us grumped around the house rockin’ the  fever & body ache shuffle: arms tightly crossed, shoulders hunched to the sky, madly twisting side to side in an effort to stave off chills. our faces scowling fiercely.

i hope you had a weekend of health and sweet.

tell me, were there laughs from the belly? tears squirting from uncontrollable hysterics and giggles? any funny movies or t.v. shows getting you to smile at the silly?

did you have at least one incredible bite of food? you know the kind where you had to stop mid sentence, close your eyes, slow motion your experience, so you can prolong the flavor, if only for a few seconds?

that happens with me and avocado all the time.

were you able to sleep deeply? a nap yesterday? or maybe, ooh, a real, full night’s sleep without an alarm or appointment the next day to gnaw at your anxiety?

i love the kind of sleep where i wake up sore from sleeping so hard. the marathon sleep where my eyes get a little puffy, but not of the tortilla chip bowl ilk. the eye puffiness that reminds me of when i was a kid waking up on summer vacation mornings: reanimated from the previous day’s hard knocks in the pool. i’m looking forward to that kind of sleep again.

it’s ironic, the more yoga i’ve been doing lately, the louder and more gibberish-like the chatter in my head has become. my anxiety levels are on the rise, and my inner buddha has his head in his hands.

unfortunately my commitments aren’t abating any time soon. this week i’ve added two more classes to my schedule. and come november there will be more to come {yay indo-row!}.

breathing.

smiling.

eating avocados.

saying “thank you.” {meaning it}.

my remedy. my sweet.

monday happy to you m’loves.
