Happy Thanksgiving, yo.

I found quite the gem at work today. A reversible skirt; leopard on one side, leather on the other, giant black zipper going all the way down one side! This is also the same place where I found my amazing Elizabeth and James plaid button-down! So I've been really rockin' and rollin' via moi style. My favorite items from my closet recently have been echoing such; a pair of short motorcycle boots, anything black, studded paneled pants, huge men's sweaters. Very band-on-tour, androgynous, Parisian, urban, woodsman. Yup, that about sums it up.
Oh, PS I 've started my second month at Crossroads Trading Company, which is a really amazing retail company. In a nut shell, we buy and sell trendy, designer clothing. We're eco-friendily, fashion-conscious, and color-coded!!!! It's really exhausting and it's more than working a normal retail job, it requires being aware of fashion trends and being able to relate and translate for our multi-fold costumer demographics. We have a few stores in the Chi, but we're mostly based California. So, please find a store/me and come buy (or sell)!!
And now I must leave and pretend to study for my final tomorrow, while entertaining whether I enjoy MTV's new show, "Styl'd" which I probably shouldn't do at the same time, but ehhh whatever. I. Hate. Finals.

I've been really inspired by Paris recently. It's sort of my go-to fantasy urban inspiration. By far, the best city I've ever experienced, which is saying a lot because we Chicagoians are very loyal! Well suffice to say, Paris, I will call you home one day! I've also been consuming French films starring Louis Garrel (above) who could literally melt me with one glance. I'm quite drawn to the Parisian, dark, tall, mysterious and enticing accents of French boys. I just saw him in "La Bonne Personne" and before that "Dans Paris" both which I highly recommend, mostly because he really is a brilliant actor. So now it's a waiting game until my Netflix comes!
