Playgrounds & Lollipops - Fade to Black
Sunday July 18th, 2010
Breakfast @ Norma's Cafe, Parker Palm Springs
Top: Nordstrom Brass Plum
Skirt: James Perse
Shoes: Sam Edelman
the thought of wearing any other accessories that I brought for this outfit: mind boggling
I heard about the scene here at the Parker. I've seen the pictures. I know what kind of hipsters go here. So I thought, "hmmm, maybe I should look like the kind of girl that is so hip she can look cool in black and dark heathered gray, in the middle of summer."
Result = total fail. I could be a poster child for the blog.
I am not hip, nor am I cool, especially trying to stand in direct sunlight of a 115 degree desert sun wearing black and gray. In fact I'm pretty sure I heard someone walk by as Miranda was taking pictures and whisper "what an idiot." Okay, maybe I'm being paranoid, or maybe that was my inner self-conscious voice I was hearing.
On another note, I do actually love this outfit. The skirt is fantastic. You would think it would be slinky and too tight being it is a stretch knit cotton, but instead it is firm and hides my little problem area (the tummy) incredibly well, while showing off my tanned legs (yippe for 15 SPF)!
