99 - Have a nice day.

Jacket - Vintage (Boyfriend's), Shirt - Vintage (Boyfriend's), Pants - Courtesy of HereJ, Shoes - Wholesale-Dress.Net, Rings - Konstantino + Flea Market + Santee Alley, Sunglasses - eBay, Lipstick - MAC Russia Red, Nail Polish - OPI Gargantuan Green Grape

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/

  6. *FREAKOUT* it just so happens that I AM in LA right now! I want to come to this so super bad, but I am dependent on my boyfriend for transportation....do you think I will be able to convince him to drive me? Damn LA and it's ineffectual transit. I hope to see you there!!! Your BF sounds super stylish, love the jacket on you!

  9. You keep giving me more and more reasons to run away to California. I didn't even knew I missed LA until about two months ago because of your blog! I'm so bummed that I can't be there for your fun vintage party though.

    Also, I'm 100% sure you've been told this before, but you have a vague Lady Gaga vibe (I think it's the shades you're wearing) except you're definitely way cooler.

  20. You look great... my other half has banned me from 'borrowing' from his wardrobe, because it always turns into stealing. Hope the party went well, I would have popped in but the journey from the UK was a bit far!

  26. Damn, I was about 18 hours too late and half a country away to make it to that event. It seemed like it would've been one helluva a shindig.

    I really love your outfit, you pull off the mixed prints so well. Furthermore, I LOVE your hair down, you look so gorgeous. Oh, ps, I am obsessed with the way you write your posts. Cracks me up everytime...

  28. "have a nice day" well thank you blog title and lovely smiley face patch. This is one of those combinations that in theory sounds oddly undo-able until worn by you and then it makes all the sense in the world. That jacket is lovely, so I can see why you'd want to persuade your boyfriend to let you take it off his hands.^_*

  30. Whyyyyyy wasn't this in a month from now? Because then I would be there drinking the free alcohol and people could take pictures of the both of us and they would see your involuntary eye twitches and my involuntary lip quivers and lifting-of-one-brow problem that I do.

    Those pants are so good, and BF should just give you that jacket.

  31. Ah, I wish I'd known about this event earlier! Sounds like my type of event. I find it hard to resist vintage shopping, music, and people watching. Hope you had fun!
