coffee date casualness.

i had a coffee date with one of my good friends today at solar de cahuenga and as it's a bit chilly still and i have treacherous hills to walk up, my look needed to be simple and comfortable. this may be a bit boring and i apologize, but i made a promise to myself that i am going to do an outfit post every day. it's kind of a goal, without the serious strictness. it's kind of like smoking for me. i've been a smoker since i was 23 years old and always wanted to quit of course but last july i just stopped craving them. i've had a few since, but i do not and will not say i quit because it would make the rebel in me want to smoke again. do you get what i'm saying? so anyway here is my comfy look-complete with a haggard bag, as you can see. i've had it forever and it's been through the wringer. but i love it still. i love the look of things that are worn in. when i get a new pair of shoes i spend a lot of time aging them and making them look authentic. i seriously love aging things. it is one of my favorite things to do when i work on movies. so much fun!

p.s. i have put a message board/chat box on the right side of my blog for you to ask me questions about styling, costume design or whatever your little heart desires. fire away!! also a good way to know when i have new posts up is to follow me on twitter. i would love to follow you as well! love.
