Blown to hell, crash.


Wow, that was the most insane/bizarre/awkward weekend of my life. Sorry for the lack of posts, I think I needed some time to recover. But I did get to hang out with fellow adorable blogger Anna, who is super rad!

White, grey and a vintage Gucci monogram purse! I scored it off eBay, and its authenticity is dubious (the seller had 100% positive feedback and there is a serial number, but I did my research after receiving it in the mail and apparently there are a lot of fakes out there that look exactly like this one...) but I like how it looks so I'll wear it whether it's real or not - albeit, with a rather disappointed face.


From now on I'll stick to buying CDs and baggy t-shirts on eBay because shoes and designer bags are just too much of a gamble. I mean, you just never know!

Very lovely ensemble. Some people just don't know how the hell to wear white tights. You're clearly not one of those people. ;)

Annie said...

lovely yummy shoes, i love how light your outfit is. The bag is yummy, regardless of it's authenticity. Also, i'd totally hook you up with my mum but she knitted the cardigan before i was born and has forgotten how to all the fancy things she used to be able. Sad face. xx

i love the white and grey tones in this outfit, it's so soft, especially with the shape of the cardigan.
i bought a "Vivienne Westwood" necklace on ebay, and it seems real enough, but it was kind of too inexpensive to be real.. I think i'd rather not know for sure though

Hey Isabel
I know what you mean by not knowing if the designer bag you are getting is a knock off or not, I was in this store and I found a cute Louis Vuitton bag and when I went up to buy it the lady told me it was a knock off and I decided not to buy it. All I know is that if the bag is not %100 leather then it is a knock off

I love these shoes!!

The Clothes Horse said...

Ooh, I love your white tights and those shoes. I'm also so doubting when it comes to "authentic" designer stuff on eBay.

Miss Woo said...

looooove the white tights with white buckled Mary Janes, a reference to Courtney? ;) And the bag looks pretty awesome, now I covet monograms...

Maverick Malone said...

Really love this. Love the tights. Makes it look awesome.

sarah said...

Leah said...

love the white on white!!! and your new haircut, obv

Diane said...

I want to snatch those shoes off yo' feet. They are gorgeous!

Whether or not your bag is a knock-off, it's very very pretttttyyy. I'm always dubious when I buy designer stuff on eBay but I always end up losing the bidding war on them anyways.

And I don't think you're missing too much from never seeing an '80s teen John Hughes movie, to be honest. I absolutely hated The Breakfast Club but Ferris Bueller was pretty cool (esp. the first 20 minutes). I should really stop assuming things on my blog! You know what they say when people assume...they make an ass out of...well, just me this time.

In addition to Home Alone, the live-action Dennis the Menace movie was awesome! Christopher Lloyd as a bad guy bum is hilarious.

I love your new haircut!

Xu Box said...
