Why So Serious?

Currently Listening to:
"In This City" by Iglu & Hartly

(Forever 21 top, homemade "Penguin Tail" skirt, Jessica Simpson 'Dany' platforms,
White House | Black Market convertable "Sweet Nothings" purse/clutch)

This is what I wore today. Nothing too spiffy, but I felt good nonetheless. It was a nice day considering all the rainy, cold weather we've been having. Leave it to me to wear a mini skirt and open-toe platforms in the middle of Sacramento Winter! Lol!

I upcycled that skirt from an old top. I added "Penguin Suit" tails to the back of it, just because I thought it was cute. Lol. The good thing about this skirt though is that its made of a sweater material, so it's not too thin and it keeps you relatively warm! I couldn't help myself with the colors either. I've always loved purple and green together, and of course when you read Batman comics and graphic novels as much as I do, you can't help but think of the Joker when you see them together. I have to admit though, the only thing I liked about The Dark Knight was Heath Ledger's performance. (R.I.P. Heath!) Otherwise, I just plain don't like the new movies.

I ESPECIALLY don't like Christian Bale's horrible Clint Eastwood-Batsuit Voice XD

Today was sort of a lazy day. My friend, Molly, and I actually had a photoshoot scheduled, but the photographer, John, unfortunately had to cancel last minute. (Being sick sucks!) I was definitely bummed, but I know the feeling, so I definitely wasn't mad. I can't wait to re-schedule though, because his photography is so beautiful. He shoots only film and polaroids and I can't wait for you guys to see what we come up with. When he's feeling better, of course. Lol. So I went out to Beach Hut Deli (my favorite sandwich place) instead and ordered the love of my life for lunch: the Surfin' Bird (buh-buh-buh-bird, bird, bird, bird is the word!).

After I was nice and stuffed, I clunked about the mini mall in my Dany's and visited with some old friends/co-workers. I made some new ones too, including a very, very cute new guy at the surf and skate shop. It still baffles me why they have 'Surf' shops around here. Sacramento isn't anywhere close to a nice beach worth surfing, let alone a nice beach in general. (The ones in San Francisco don't count in my book.) Which then got me thinking just how much I miss SoCal. I grew up in Huntington Beach and I am much over-due on a visit! Luckily, my best friend Nikki will be coming up to SF in March to visit, which I'm sooooooooo excited for! We get to eat and shop and catch up! Nothing better than that.

I hope you're all off to a lovely start this week <3
