So this blog has now become more of a task than a pleasure. at this point, i still have not found the time to

a) take proper photos
b) modify the layout to make it more user friendly
c) be creative with my outfits
d) found proper, substantive fodder for replacement posts or
e) been able to comment on the blogs i love

Alas, I am now stuck in blog limbo: do i stay or do i go?

The compromise is that I'm going to remove myself from this blog but stick around as a blogger 'presence', if you will.  Will continue to dally around on tumblr and within the blogosphere, but until I can consistently post actual content, I see no point in tormenting both of us (it's like a breakup letter now...).

Anyhow, I hope to continue to see you all on the interwebs, and heaven willing, with a real blog in the future.  Thanks for taking all the time to read all the insomnia-induced jibberish I post on here.  Cheers to you all, talk soon. :)

back to looking like a dood. :(. seeking a more fitted jacket to potentially remedy this.

i've been more keen on organization lately, and have had a pretty crazed few days of wanting to dump EVERYTHING i own. i have tempered the beast, however. will be putting both of these boots up for sale on ebay this evening.

or of a good bag. i think i'm becoming a sucker for these two.
long day of work. going to turn in 'early'.

so i have terrible lighting in my apartment when it gets grey outside. which it was when i wore this. just back from a short vacation and a long weekend. hoping for a good week...not enough study time.

been dealing with some sort of weird vibe lately as far as trying to connect with people. i also realize it has affected this blog considerably. i have withdrawn considerably from what i considered to be a habit. i feel like it was a very important part of my life and i pulled back from it almost simultaneous with pulling back from some other very important things.

 antonio fasciani boots; martin margiela grey pants; brown antonio fasciani boots instead of black prada boots.

the result is an almost ascetic lifestyle where i go through the motions....just so, for what i believe is a higher cause, something greater than myself.  no gusto, very little drive. just plugging away at the current goal.  it affected me considerably in the winter what with feeling completely ensconced in grey days. despite all of this, i have it better than most and have been using that knowledge to propel me forward out of yet another rut.  i used to feel much better about my "position" in life, but lately, i feel like my current station is helping to keep me away from other, different kinds of opportunities. consequently, i am not sure if i have made the right choice.
These boots have a zip and snap fixture at their back. Alas, they do not zip all the way, or snap, on the left side. More bloodflow chub on that side, I guess.
i feel as though i have exchanged one mode of frustration for another; it has always been my curse to want to do and feel and see more. i feel like i've made some terrible mistake along the way that has reduced the likelihood of 'more' within the context i had hoped for. but i guess this is what your 20s are for, non?

today is a busy day. tons of errands. lots of anxiety. exams upcoming (as always!) and not enough sleep (also, as always).
puritan sweater, cool hunting people shirt, earnest sewn harlan skinny jeans, george cox winklepicker boot

but this is what i wore to start the morning (going up to 70 degrees today!!!!!). while most of the city is taking wild advantage of this bare-legged opportunity--the first of the year--i stuck to my uniform. i find that i am now feeling more confident about my clothing now that i'm not coat-ridden. i think the winter was starting to get to me and my self-confidence re: my body and style and a host of other superficial, random nonsense.

here's to the weekend. and posting more often. i think.



i seem to have 'magicked' away the pictures on my sd card, so alas, i am postless again.
in lieu of a proper post, i thought i'd share this image i came across.

i've found a love for fitted trousers yet again but i am having quite a bit of trouble trying to find pants fitted enough for my calves. which will no doubt mean many, many trips to the tailor.

i am currently trying to decide if it makes sense to find pants that fit my body overall and having them adjusted OR going to a more upscale store and purchasing the most costliest pants that i can afford, lol. it definitely seems that greater coin buys you better quality even in the higher price ranges; in other words, there is always a higher price point. frustrating, i must say. all i want are pants...

dry spell

not much going on here. but i have had some REALLY good ideas. but i think those may have faded with the lethargy and exams that have rendered my brain to virtual putty at this point.
i do like these looks though, don't you?
i'm trying to get used to my hair now. got a hairCUT the other day and am trying to learn how to work with the curl pattern, which is rather unruly. and confused. i'm confused. i'm getting new boots. damn things need to be here already before the weather changes so much i can't wear them.
what do you all do for exercise?
