Halloween has come early this year in the form of the most fabulous five-dollar tights I have ever laid eyes on. First, I’d like to thank Music Legs, the brand that birthed these beauties, second, let’s hear it for buycostumes.com, the site that sold them, but mostly, I applaud the Internet, without whom none of this would be possible. Hurrah, hurrah. Ironically, yesterday was San Francisco’s first sunny day in eons and I was wearing tights out to go swimming in a rooftop pool. Gotta love the bay.

Today was busy. Let’s start with that. I woke up late because my alarm didn’t go off, just enough time to get me to my interview at Crossroads but not without first stopping in my tracks, panicking at the notion that I was going to a FASHION interview and had not planned out what to wear. Fear not, though, luckily, I had just received a package in the mail with the most fucking amazing leggings by Michael Angel. Easy fix. Throw on a slouchy gray tank and some and my old cowboy boot faves and voilĂ , interview ready. That’s good cause I turned out having a couple more interviews later on, of which I am most excited about an internship at D-Structured, a fashion/art gallery.

Top to toe in chaotic floral prints. Possibly somewhat inspired by Susie’s jeggings post. By the way, I hate the term, but I love the garment. I think I like them better a la Topshop than a la American Apparel. I hate how Susie always seems to post things exactly when I’m thinking of doing the exact same thing, she just gets there sooner. For example, I hate the amazingly original idea (pshh) to do a OD on leopard print post, but lo and behold, later that very week, Susie done it. But, then again, what doesn’t she do? Just so we get this straight, if she starts rocking one-legged pants and DIY epaulettes, thats proof enough that she’s reading my mind.

I came across this top the other day in one of my local thrifting haunts and was instantly attracted to its beaded umbrellas and heavy-hanging bat wing shape. My first thought was to pair it with a pair of white leggings with little knots at the bottom, but the overwhelming disco-ness of it all put me off of that notion and I quickly decided on a pair of more modern beige cut-offs and classic black suede heels. This is one of those cases where gaudy = swooning.

I made this top the other day to wear for a party I was throwing that very night. Think of it more as a prototype for future creations, or at least as something whose mistakes I can certainly learn from. Next time I’ll be sure to put the zippers in last so that I can make them more vertical and centered and since this was my first foray in hemming a rounded edge, I made a hellofalotta mistakes.
