above from bows + arrows in austin, cool shop
sunday in my nook of brooklyn i wandered aimlessly before the weather got too crappy to bother and ended up at steven alan on atlantic. i meant to hit the sample sale a few months back–in retrospect, would have been smart–but didn’t and i finally bought my first steven alan shirt, the reverse seam. i have officially entered hipster-dom. a tattoo cannot be far behind, especially leading into to the upcoming atrocious birthday i refuse to consider mine (and besides, i finally figured out the what and wherefore of it, now to just pick the place and make my 3-month in advance booking). at any rate, the shirt is perfect and fits in my trademark slightly-sloppy-tomboy-sexy way, and like the apc jeans i picked up last year, this was an on-sale purchase about which i have no regrets. it rocks. so there. ooh, & it was an additional 10% off and i don’t know how long they’re doing it and/or if it’s online, too, but 10% of the total sale is donated to the haiti relief fund. help the economy, help haiti, look hot. awesome. don’t judge, i already donated the real way, too.
mine, black and teal plaid, hard to pick just one. also, the store by me carries vintage-y looking rings by jerry grant, very delicate and feminine, not egregiously priced and from what the shopgirl told me, he’s steven’s dad, local jewelry designer. very cool.
