Crushing on You


Here’s my modern-day take on what I used to wear in high school: crushed velvet. If I had thrown a flannel over this I might have had to stay at home all day to lay on my bedroom floor and listen to Nirvana while making a collage representing Anthony Kiedis’ and my wedding ceremony. Okay now I’ve dated myself…

Anyway, here I am holding the leash to nowhere once again. I wore these sweater tights even though it was almost 80 out today. What’s the deal with everywhere else in the entire world being under a foot of snow, and here in Texas it hasn’t even rained a drop in a month? I must say it makes it difficult to get into the holiday spirit!

I am amazed and overjoyed by all the comments you guys have left lately. I love reading each and every one of them, and I always enjoy visiting new blogs and commenting in return. I also post pictures on Chictopia and Weardrobe if you just don’t feel like reading my banter about my 90’s obsessions. I love it when you follow me too…I don’t think it’s creepy or stalkerish in the least!

    i looove little velvet dresses like that! i thrift most of mine, and while i used to think crushed velvet was just a little too much, i have fully embraced it this year. i just picked up a crushed velvet jumpsuit that is vying for new year's outfit status.

    i also like the off-camera doggie 😀

    I'm so on the velvet dress train this year, though I haven't bought one yet. I have yet to convince anyone else I know of the awesomeness of nineties retro velvet, but I will continue to try.

    I love the crushed velvet and I love that it's purple. I wish I could send you some of NY's cold weather and you could send me some of that 80 degrees…I'm in need of a little warmth!

    I kinda think Velvet wont look good on me but you are totally rocking it. Love your pictures. You look adorable in the shots! :)

    Laurel! Even more than your outfits (which are terribly cute), I have to say that it's your voice I that makes this such a special blog in my eyes. So funny and real.

    So! That being said, I'll stop being a creepy stalker, and start commenting. :)

    And — on a different note — also feel like Austin is having split personalities regarding the holidays. It's FREEZING! NO! It's HOT! What? Very difficult. To dress, I mean. My solution comes in layers, and specifically cardigans and scarves.

    I WISH I could have been a teenager in the 90s. I've got a huge crush on the whole decade.
