I'm not sayin', I'm just saying...

Let me start by saying that Rumi is gorgeous, stylish and one of the best bloggers ever, but does anyone notice a striking resemblance between her and...


A TEDDY BEAR? Yes, that vest looks like a teddy bear. Of all the things you would want to look like, a teddy bear? Sometimes trends are silly. I'm going to sit this 'furry vest' thing out.

Now, on to some things I do like... Flat ankle boots!

I can't stand stiletto ankle boots, but these flat ones just stole my heart. Possibly made more adorable by the fact they're called "Lennon Skimmers" on the UO website.

Possibly the best photograph ever - Kurt Cobain and a cat. I love it when two of my favourite things ever get together for one picture.

I love Rumi, Fashion Toast is one of my favourite reads.
I like the brown versions of those boots better too, I want to get myself a pair! One of my friends has some black, pointed toe boots like that (flat) but they're a bit big for me. =[
The photo of Kurt is so cute <3

holy shit at the Kurt Cobain picture. I want to print it out and duct tape it to my face.
Ha, I see the teddy resemblance, though I quite like fuzzy vests. Not exactly the kind Rumi is sportin right here, but the poofy white sheep kinds are sick. Beautiful photograph of her, though.
And the brown shoes are wonderful!!

Heya,

I'm new to the blogging world and was wondering if you'd like to exchange links? Can't wait to see what you come up with with the new docs.

Cheers,
Naz

ohh kurt. we could have run away together. I was three when you died but in a couple of years we could have made it work.
love those lennon shoes too.

clairegrenade said...

Miss Karen said...

Hehe that is quite a resemblance there :D

I love the Kurt photo!

PS. I think a paper on 1960s british culture would make such an excellent read!

Amelia said...

lol. It is a strange resemblance. I love those flat ankle boots. I don't mind them with a little heel, but stilettos do annoy me.

WendyB said...

Not sure I've ever seen that Kurt picture before. Love it.

Hope said...

Because of my awkward height, I'm eternally in love with flat boots. Flat ankle boots are just fancier flats, which makes them awesome.

Thanks for the recommendation, I'll definitely have to check out his collection. That particular picture is one of my favorites - there was a write-up somewhere of the worst black metal photos ever and it was hilarious.

Nay'Chelle said...

Aha, nice comparison. I've never seen that photo of Kurt but it's definately a beautiful one.

Monikapolitan.com said...

lol a teddy bear. Super cute. Those boots are more than awesome!

Miss Woo said...

Haha, I think Rumi is so drop dead gorgeous she can even rock a teddy bear jacket. And I'm sure there's a Lol cat caption waiting to be made in that Kurt pic.

molly said...

i like the fur vest thing! however, i personally see nothing wrong with dressing like my good bud teddy.

but thats just me.

Ashleigh said...

flat ankle boots....high priority on my list ;)

Ashleigh said...

oh and that pic of Kurt-----YESSSS (thats all)!!

MR style said...

rumi is amazin

Tavi said...

thought you'd like to know, I am printing out the cobain photo as we speak to put it on my bedroom wall. The ink is running out in my printer but it looks kinda cool. The picture is also in my sidebar.

Me? Creepy? Stop it.

louise or valentine said...

those are coolest shoes ever.
i want them!
i would wonder around in a corduroy jacket with elbow patches insisting people refer to me as professor.

Ana said...

Hahaha wow. The resemblance is quite striking. But, being gorgeous and tall and skinny, Rumi pulls it off.

The Stylish Wanderer said...

I ALSO HATE HATE HATE the furry vest thing. I think all the vests, no matter what color, shape size, makes it look like you are a wooly mammoth (or teddy bear) and its completely unflattering.

tsk.

beccajanie said...

I love those boots - and the kurt/cat picture - so cute!

yiqin; said...

Hannah Cheeto said...

Those flat ankles boots are amazing!

That is quite a phtotgraph, it's good to see him when he looked happy. Also, the more I think about it, the more shye looks like a teddy bear.
