It's 10 days til Christmas. I never get anything for Christmas, just cash, and that is going to my car fund (she says as she bites down hard on her finger). Unless my exceedingly generous grandparents find it in their heart to buy me a car. Which they might and have been known to pull grandiose gestures in past. Writing this all down will make it come true. Anyway here are the other things one of my patrons can buy me for Kurisumasu.



I HATE YOU TOPSHOP. Why is US shipping an option on their UK website? When you go to check out, it forces you to redirect to the US website where everything is double and a half price! The wool skinny pants of my dreams, a reasonable £48 on the UK website, are $110 freaking dollars on the US one! $110 dollars? I don't even spend $110 on the things I like let alone a pair of wool pants from the high street. AND ANOTHER THING, why is shipping on the UK website to the US £7.50 (around $11), when the shipping on the US website to the US is fifteen dollars?? On what planet does it cost less to ship over an ocean than to put it on a wagon and send it Pony fuckin Express????

Needless to say I am well pissed, but if anyone wanted to get me the Tux Delux trousers or this delightfully whacky 'denim frill dress' I would be much obliged.




If I had the wool pants, I could wear them with these Miu Miu lightning bolt shoes. If I had these shoes, that is. They are everything everyone likes: Pointy, snakeskin, lightning bolt shaped. And marked down 50% to $342.50.



Dorky birth control glasses are a trend I hope dies forever of terminal lame, since it makes pretty girls look ugly and ugly girls look stupid, but these Selima Optique for J Crew glasses are fresh to death. Lucky me I found a pair of B&L Rayban Wayfarer II's for a cool 5 bucks at a garage sale this weekend. Wayfarer IIs are bigger than your average Wayfarer which is good for me, since regular Wayfarers are at their narrowest where my skull is at my widest. No good. I think Auds is wearing Wayfarer IIs.


"Keep it fresh, y'all"


Y finalmente, I am going to pick up a blue Powershot later today and then you will see more outfit pics! I will take them by force if necessary...

Girl, I am so feeling this. I've got my eye on some brocade trousers from Topshop, but there is no way I am paying 110 for pants.

I'm just going to have to check on them every day til they go on sale, then pounce. I sent them a strongly worded email about their crappy website, but so far no response...

Ha, you know, birth control glasses. When people say "guys don't make passes at girls who wear glasses"...these are the kind of glasses I think they're talking about!

(cos really, that girl is totally gorgeous and she's covering up her beauty with those ugly glasses!)
