polish + studs

here are some recent purchases...

i caved and got the blue satin nail enamel from chanel today. i really liked the colour when i first saw it, but had reservations because i wore this exact same colour all the time during highschool (obviously not made by chanel). i always feel this way about something that was popular or that i wore when i was younger (like coloured denim, doc martins, etc.) that comes back in fashion. i honestly never though doc martins would come back in fashion (i love the way they look on the young fashionistas, but i don't think i will go there myself.) i suppose i should just go with the flow more. now i just have to get my scraggly cuticles fixed up for a fresh polish.

also, i got this belt at h+m when i was in san francisco and decided to make it into a bracelet instead.

i ended up buying some inexpensive wide leg jeans at forever 21 in salt lake city. i was craving them so badly and haven't had time to go pick up my nice ones (the 18th amendment colbert) from our postal box in the states. i wore them with my second-hand marine t-shirt, leather jacket and all-black converse. it was really hot that day, but i was willing it to be fall! eventually i had to take off the jacket because i just couldn't stand it any longer. this picture is from last week. it's the best i could do at our 5th (or is it 6th?) temporary home.

Would you believe I still have the pair of Doc Martens I bought 19 years ago? They still fit, too, and they are worn-in to perfection. I haven't worn them in at least 10 years, but I try them on every few months just to see if I can pull it off. (I don't think I can...)

I believe it! My mom said she still has a couple of pairs of mine still. I think we both could probably pull it off if we wanted to! :)

so with you on the revival of the 90's, I find it weird to re-do trends from highschool...
