Probably as a result of his overwhelming school schedule, my boyfriend has stopped wearing all of the amazing clothing he has stockpiled in the two -- that's right, TWO -- closets he keeps for himself in our apartment. Instead, he opts to live in the same comfy sweatshirt and jeans every day. When this initially developed, I told him that if he wasn't going to wear all of his rad stuff, I would. This outfit is really a testament to that threat. Although, I must admit, he wears this jacket pretty much every day. The jacket is perfect, but really he should give it to me, because there are these two little butterflies on the front pockets, and no man should be wearing denim jackets embroidered with butterflies, right? I don't really have a problem with it either way, but I'm going to use that as leverage in my argument for him to just hand it over permanently. We went to dinner last night and started discussing ways in which we could alter the butterflies to make them really manly butterflies. Maybe the butterflies could be skull butterflies carrying weapons, like scary knives and sickles and machine guns! Yeah, tough manly butterflies.
Hey, are you in LA-ish? Are you just dying to see the dramatic height disparity between Brit and me in person? Do you love her Crystallized vintage goods? Do you like free alcohol? Maybe I should have asked that last question first...
Tonight, from 5-10pm, Brit and I will be hawking a rack of men's and women's vintage hotness over at the adorable vintage store Telltale Hearts in Silverlake. They are having a free vintage party, complete with vendors, music, refreshments, and a photo booth. I imagine that it is all ages. Come! In the event that it is not all ages, it's okay, because you are my long lost estranged sister/twin/cousin/husband/daughter/dog walker, and SURELY they will let you in for that.
Look, it's Marie from The Maven Post on the flyer! Look at how gorgeous she is! She always brings the pretty.
You can maybe come and shop and chillax and perhaps even take pictures. Should you wish, you can take photos with us both so that you can see the horror through which my boyfriend goes every day, where he has to scream "Stop making your face weird!" every few seconds, or "Will you at least TRY to be pretty?!" It takes about a billion pictures before I look good, so you could potentially have all sorts of photos of me with my eyes half-closed while I make odd mouth shapes. Then, you can show those pictures to people so they see how much more photogenic and attractive you are than Madeline from Jean Greige. They will nod their heads in agreement and say, "I didn't realize she had involuntary eye twitches like that."
I think it will be a lot of fun. You'd better show up or I am calling off the engagement. I don't care if we already paid the deposit on the catering.
EDIT: Someone told me to get a Tumblr -- already one step ahead o' ya dolls! http://jeangreige.tumblr.com/
