time on my hands could be time spent with you. or, i guess, time spent taking pictures of myself.

i first became enamored of yokoo back in july when i saw her epicly odd and wonderful self-portraits on flickr..then in august i bought one of her knitted up gold chains (which ALWAYS gets a ton of compliments)..and now my most recent MUST HAVE IT NOWZ have arrived from the amazingly talented yokz, welcome to my new winter jam:



a minnie mouse head bow and her 'pembroke cowl' ! i got them in matching oatmeal.
(i can't fuck with crazy colors, i like my outerwear to be simple cuz what's underneath is so bonkers.)



i put this thing on as soon as i got it at work. let me tell you, on the 6th floor the compliments and amusements are plenty. in the elevators and the cafeteria, people be giving you hairy eyeballz left n right. one of the lunch girls loves me though, she calls me 'vintage'. ("haaay vintage, that dress is CUTE, gurl!")



white white white black silver red white white



i tried to dress in an homage to yokoo but i can;t find my glasseswithnoglassinthem. so i just went with bows n bows. masculin/feminin, ya know?

so giddy right now!

I always feel weird about buying bows that aren't mine but since I can't knit anyway I think I really need to have one.
Annoyingly I can't afford the cowl too and now i'm jealous of your super combo! grr

MMmmmm...I might need copycat. If we ever see each other again we can phone ahead to decide who gets to wear the bow. Maybe both for Viktor & Rolf twin effexx.

Aw man, I wish I could wear red lipstick. But since I got my bangs cut yesterday - so straight across they look like my mom did it, I can defs bust out my giant velvet bow hairband, which i will do tomorrow.

emilie said...

i love you, WL.
for buying one of yookoo's bows which i have been OBSESSED WITH for MONTHS.

AND FOR WEARING MORE THAN ONE BOW IN ONE OUTFIT:D

and for your red lips and EPIC COOLNESS

zana bayne said...

wow. you must wear those together with the lipstick ALWAYS! fa-ha-ha-bulous

Tavi said...

Hayyyy vintage! Has to be my favorite outfit of yours, EVZzzzz-and I can't even see the whole thing! The red lipstick is totally boss and the oatmeal color is lovelyyyy, especially the minni ears. When you first told me Pembroke I thought it was the pea green since that was the one shown in the picture and it didn't occur to me that there were other ones, but now I like the oatmeal better. Favez! Pink ruffly blouse is very Valentino and the tartan is beyond adorbz.

wtf long ass comment much? whatevs, it expresses my love for you~~
