Eliot is sneaking around at my feet in these pics, silly monkey. I’m wearing the Crew Cuts tie again with an H&M dress, layered with a cardigan from Forever 21 & a cardigan from Target, Black Milk wetlook pantyhose on my legs and Marc by Marc Jacobs rubber boots on my feet!

So I’m struggling with wearing a very small faux fur collection that I have in my closet. It’s getting quite cold here and that is the main reason I bought that big muppet monster coat (photo below) at H&M almost two years ago in a New York City winter! For me it’s about perception. What I wear reflects who I am and since I’m a fake meat eater that in this case seems to translate to also being a fake leather wearer and a fake fur wearer. But, seriously! I don’t want anyone to ever think I’m strolling around with dead animal skins draped on my body. Vegans, are you wearing faux fur this winter?

Are you taking a vacation this summer (or this season)?  Where are you headed and who's going with you?

we are going to portland, seattle, santa rosa, mammoth and maui in the next few months. plus hopefully a fun los angles weekend for dinner, disneyland and family.

clothes! today i wore my pink vox t shirt! yesterday i had on a simple red t with a tiny little pocket. wednesday i wore a baby pink h&m t with a brown nest tank from doe. tuesday i wore my sweats all day, we had gym class so i had on my dark blue nike sweats and an amy tangerine 'go' t. monday i had on a button up that i got in portland when i was shopping with lydia. and if your reading this lydia, i don't think i'm going to keep it. it feels a little too bit costumey-rock-a-billy to me. and i've also worn my marc by marc jacobs red thermal with blue flowers on it and my love all creatures great and small t this week.

Tell us about a lesson you had to learn the hard way.

i think i once heard someone say when someone shows you who they are believe them. lesson learned over and over again. details aren't even necessary. and it's an ongoing lesson, because i can't help but hope.

clothing: today i wore my emerge kindness heals orange top. yesterday i wore my new h&m dress. it was only $12.99, andy said, money well spent, he liked it a lot. sunday i wore my urban outfitters please don't eat me tee that has a pig on it. saturday i wore stuff i've worn before.  

side note: i watched 'this american life' on showtime on sunday night, so i don't know when it originally aired, but the crew was on a pig farm. a factory, rather. the sound guy was so horrified by what he saw that at the program end the voice over announced he hadn't had meat since they filmed. the truth is powerful and can be life altering.

so my clothing experiment is going fairly well, i think. i have cheated a couple of times. for one i shopped in ojai, which i previously revealed. secondly, i bought a pair of black ag angel cords because they were on sale and i love them so. in addition on the same website i bought the cords, in order to get free shipping i just had to spend a little bit more, and i got sucked in and bought a super girl tee. lastly, i cheated a few days ago after getting am email from victoria's secret that some dresses i've had my eye on were on sale plus free shipping. in a moment of weakness (and stress) i grabbed a few. and a bonus treat was a butterfly bikini from jcrew that i bought to celebrate passing my personal trainer exam. eek! there was one more, also last week i was at target and bought a little white baby doll top with pockets and buttons. oh my, i don't think i should go on, i just remembered i went to the city two weeks ago and at h&m with my friend amy and i was enchanted by the low prices and newness and companionship (excuse excuses!) so i picked up a dress, a pink tee, a pair of brown shorts and a grey and pink striped mini dress. i am so weak when it comes to shopping! oh man, i just recalled another purchase at the gap of a pair of black shorts. it was hot and all my shorts don't fit! i have a lot of size sixes and with a belt it's not baggy cute, it's baggy ridiculous when i need a zero.

well, after taking a loose count of the items in my closet i have yet to wear, i could probably go another four months (it's already been a bit over two).

over the last few days i've worn my amy tangerine bliss top, a grey glitter dumbo tee from disneyland, i bought about four years ago i think. and today i wore my white thermal (again) and my old navy grey v-neck hoodie sweater, which i also think i've worn before. i've had to become much more organized in my crazy closet since i am in it full on now.  i recently separated everything into sections of what i've worn from what i haven't.

i'm baring my soul and closet here and clearly i need help. i know, i know i'm only cheating myself! i really, really don't want to start over again. and i've worn quite a few things over again because they're personal favorites.

i do feel like this process is helpful. for the most part, i've been a little more creative with my purchases and outfits. wish me luck. because as you see i need it.
