What I Wore: 10.23.10 // Walt Disney World

For my fourth trip to Walt Disney World, I wanted to look pulled together but still feel comfortable. The weather here in Florida has been roughly 85 degrees every day (unlike Portland, where it’s raining buckets). A thin black dress paired with bare legs totally saved me from turning into a sweaty mess. I bought my mouse ears in Disneyland back in February of last year and have already gotten four trips’ worth of wear out of them — not too bad!

Somewhere near Frontier Land, taking a rest. Disney World requires a ton of walking for the adults — if I was a child, I’d surely demand a stroller. There’s ‘Stroller Parking’ signs scattered everywhere throughout the park.

Onto the accessories. Since I wore a pretty basic black dress, I wanted to add a dash of visual interest. I’m loving my 4-Strap Belt by Zana Bayne.


I Wore:

Dress, Forever 21
Necklace, Plastique
Belt, Zana Bayne Leather
Shoes, Moma
Cardigan, courtesy of ModCloth
Sequined Ears, Disney
Watch, Nixon

Never second guess yourself. ALWAYS wear comfortable footwear! These shoes had a half inch heel at most and were easily adjustable. I walked all day and my feet felt pretty good at the end. During past visits, I’ve occasionally worn more outlandish shoes for photos but always had a practical pair stashed away in my bag. It’s really hard to have a good time when your feet hurt!

This was taken at the very end of my day at the Magic Kingdom. I just wanna go home! On Friday, I worked all day, flew all night and after a two hour nap, my brother and I hit Disney. We were so tired! It’s been fun reminiscing because the last time we were at Disney World together was in 1995 when he was 11 and I was 13. I think now that we’re in our late 20s, a bit of that magic has worn off. 😉

The Week in Pictures: 10.22.10

In all honesty, I feel like I barely made it through this week (too many late nights, too many cups of coffee in an attempt to balance it out) but all I can say is this: my sequined mouse ears are packed. That’s what matters right at this moment.

Above are a few items that have been hanging around my office as of late: a new-ish white version of my beloved Avant Garde necklace, gray paint chips (we need to paint our very 80s kitchen very badly), a Forever 21 multi-chain necklace and one of my many trusty Stabilo pens.

This weekend, Joey and I went to the park so I could shoot some shoes for a batch of new Solestruck ads and this is what I wore. Not exactly appropriate park attire. Everyone else was doing the casual Sunday thing, having picnics and engaging in very weird workout routines.

This is one of the newest ads I’ve done for Solestruck — I especially like it because I shot it on the bottom half of my dining room table!

Onto the topic of packing. Here’s what I’m bringing with me. Everything is highly practical, I might add. ‘Practical’ to me equates to wedge sneakers, the new issue of W featuring a very naked Kim Kardashian, a belt with four buckles, etc. You get the point.

This Fall, I’ve barely bought any clothing. Instead, I’ve been focusing on how a handful of high quality accessories can freshen up what’s already in my closet. A recent purchase has been the 4 Strap Belt. I love how it adds some visual interest to my pile of basic black dresses.


I’m sitting at the airport right now getting ready to board my flight so I must bid you farewell. Enjoy your weekend! Things may be a bit slow around here again for next week but will resume to normal after that.

Peace, Love and Nubs,

Imagine receiving daily feedback about things you did over the past decade instead of just the past week or two. Suppose that every day, people sent you questions about things you said or did in 2005, 2006, 2007… even 1999. Imagine what this forced nostalgia would do to your ability to stay focused on the present.”

Wall Street, New York City
September 15th, 2010

Bianca shot these photos of me the day after my 29th birthday and the day before we boarded a plane to Vegas. Wall Street at night is fairly desserted; all of the business folks have left for the day and headed to the bars or home. It still feels surreal to me to be posing on the steps of a building right next to a massive statue of George Washington. Or, just standing near the U.S. Stock Exchange, which is lit up, letting off an eery red glow at night.

I’ve had this dress since 2003 or so — it was a handmade vintage number bought for less than $30.00 on Ebay and I’ve since worn it about a million times. I usually pull it out for Valentine’s Day or birthdays. 😉

I have to admit, it’s kind of nice sitting out here at night when most of the tourists have left. Quiet and empty….just the way I like it.

P.S. If I’m a little quiet around these parts this week, it’s because I’m working through a mind-boggling number of freelance jobs and packing my suitcase.
