saint james striped shirts at lark



    Before leaving to visit Vancouver a month ago, my friend Mikey raved about how excited he was to go shopping there and showed me the Lark store's website where he planned to go to check out their selection of Saint James striped shirts. He ended up purchasing a short sleeved top with navy stripes and upon seeing it I was seriously tempted to run away with it. One of these days I'll get a picture of how he wears it! Although I do regret not having asked him to bring me back one, I'm still planning on ordering from the site when I get the chance. I'm thinking maybe red stripes with 3/4 sleeves? Or a short sleeved navy one like Mikey's? Or perhaps both? I can't decide!




    In any case, posting about this was primarily sparked by a visit to the site after seeing it on him a few days ago and a need to spread the word since I've received a couple of emails asking where readers can get striped shirts like mine. While everyone doesn't have the chance to score at vintage or thrift stores, I'd say that these Saint James shirts are a great alternative. Wait, what am I saying? These shirts are way better than any ratty old tee! I need to stop myself from buying their whole selection. For now, here are these amazing shots that I found at the Lark blog. I'm a sucked for these colors in photos.

marc jacobs and vena cava, oh my

    what's inside?
    marc jacobs shoes

    Finally managed to snap a good picture of the $20 Marc Jacobs shoes. Still in shock and realized how perfectly professional they are for job interviews which should be coming up soon now that I am a senior. Don't get me wrong, I'm into recent trends just as much as any blogger is (maybe to a lesser degree, hmph) but it's comforting to have shoes like these which will never go out of style like say, gladiator platforms. Every girl out there needs a pair of timeless shoes! Did I mention that they're handcrafted? Mmmhmm.

    vena cava
    vena cava

    My luck may be terrible in other respects but when it comes to clothes, there is no better word to describe it other than this: PWNAGE. While the circumstances were unfortunate given that the best boutique in the East Bay, August, is closing their store in Rockridge, I took advantage of it anyway and scored this Vena Cava dress for, wait for it... $50. $50?! Not $600?! I looked at the price tag in disbelief, tried it on anyway, asked the girls there if it was really true, and finally purchased it on the spot. I wore it out yesterday for lunch and ice cream with my boyfriend but never managed to take an outfit shot because I looked horrible due to the insane heat. You guys are just going to have to wait... I'll be nice this time and link you guys to the runway picture. Cheers!

Le Pouvoir a besoin des zartisstes pour lui dirre la vvvérité.




    tshirt The Kooples / leggings American Apparel / chaussures Zara / gavroche H&M / collier Satellite / "Un roman français" de Frédéric Beigbeder


    Je préfère mettre cette reprise de Patriiiiiiiiiick Bruel & Zazie, ayant un peu de mal avec Charles Trenet (j'exècre les racistes). Mais j'aime d'amour cette chanson.
    I prefer posting this cover by Patriiiiick Bruel & Zazie, because I can't really stand Charles Trenet (I abhor racists). But I really love this song.

back to school, not so cool (but food will always make things better)


    acne shirt, vintage skirt, thrifted oxfords

    I started out the day wearing something completely different but first I spilled ketchup on my vintage blouse and two hour later I snagged my green skirt on a branch. When you add that to the frustrations I'm facing with getting into a certain class today was just not my day. As I stated the last post, the comments and emails have made me feel so much better and I appreciate everyone's love and words of encouragement!

    So I changed my clothes and tried to start the day afresh. After all, all I can really do at this point is keep my chin up and hope for the best since there is always a bright side to every misfortune. My favorite shirt always knows how to make me feel better (and somehow magically never stains considering my perpetual clumsiness) tucked into a vintage tweed skirt (with pockets!!) and lace-up oxfords. Very 60s college student, no? I wonder if they had these problems getting into classes 40 years ago. Oh, just lost track of where I was going again. Is my stream of consciousness too tiring?

    (Looking at pictures of food also comforts me in times of need so here are some shots from Tartine in San Francisco!)

    chocolate chip cookie from Tartine Bakery

    Tartine Bakery usually has ridiculous lines out the door but we lucked out this time around although we still had to wait a while for our food. We started out with a nice big cookie while we waited for our food since there's never anything wrong with dessert before a meal! Don't believe old wives tales (or tell my mom that I said this)!

    quiche from Tartine Bakery

    My pick: a slice of quiche. At first I wondered if I should have gone with two slices but one was definitely enough. Mine had crème fraîche, local eggs, ham, and various herbs. So filling and perfectly flaky! There was also a vegetarian option with tomatoes which I will try eventually for sure.

    spicy turkey sandwich from Tartine Bakery

    His pick: a pressed spicy turkey sandwich. What's inside escapes me but I'm sure you can look at their menu online (I can't open pdfs here, pfft). He ended up super full and still had to take a slice home! Definitely something you can share with someone else.

lemon ricotta pancakes

    lemon ricotta pancakes

    Finally got around to developing film today. My boyfriend made these unbelievably fluffy lemon ricotta pancakes for us last week for breakfast. They were so adorable! I have a terrible soft spot for mini anything... burgers, hats, puppies, you name it. Anyone from Tumblr remember my obsession with Jack-in-the-Box's mini sirloin burgers? There's this bar across the street from Pika's which has overpriced sliders which I've been dying to try just because they're tiny and adorable. Ahh!

Hey

    Dans l'métro.
    In the metro.













    robe American Apparel / tshirt H&M / boots Topshop / colliers Claire's et Satellite



    Je n'ai vraiment plus l'habitude de mettre des robes. C'est un peu comme si j'avais viré le mot "féminin" de mon vocabulaire par moments.
    Je compte bien m'y remettre dès cet hiver. Promis. (J'essaie de me justifier, en fait, je viens de voir masse de robes hyyyyper moulantes chez Topshop et autres sites.)

    I've lost the habit of wearing dresses. Kind of like I took the "feminine" word off of my vocabulary, sometimes.
    But I will take it back this winter. I promise. (Trying to justify, actually I just saw lots of bodycon dresses on Topshop.uk and other sites.)
