rewind

Firstly, no I have not been hiding in a cave or hibernating away from my computer, nor have all of my cameras fallen into a black hole. So I suppose I hold no true excuse for my infrequent and delayed posting this past week. However, some exciting events have transpired in the past few days. This includes the end of monsoon season (!), a new apartment (officially!!) and some household duties I was strongly recommended to accomplish (hi dad!). After the freak rains we had, it seemed like every single leaf from the trees surrounding my backyard decided to fall and litter its premises. Needless to say, I spend an afternoon of fun playing one-zillion leaf pickup. Sounds like a good time right?

Unsurprisingly I rushed at the chance to get out of my house and dressed in my Sunday’s best, enjoyed the warm weather for the first time in days. I remember seeing this 60s-inspired See by Chloe dress and carefully stalking it until it went on sale. I was truly delighted when I could actually afford it because it is such a statement on itself and something I know I’ll have for a long time. This dress feels like stepping back in time – almost as if it was my own personal time machine. I am just waiting for my dad to wind some ridiculous tales about his childhood and ask me if “I’m hip with it” or using complimenting words like “groovy”… no such luck yet but I feel it coming… ;)








{See by Chloe dress; Marc Jacobs shoes; H&M headband and spike bracelet; vintage wolf ring; vintage Ray Bans}
