Completely Gratuitous + Eleven Things

paparazzi photos

I was actually running in that center pic…trying to get in place for the two second timer ….also…trying to do this before anyone got here this morning…lol…if anyone caught me….my face would turn bright red!

infamous shoe shots …click to enlarge

I’m super tired this week so my creativity getting ready in the morning is waning. These pants are so long that these are pretty much the only shoes that are high enough to wear with them. Unfortunately, it limits me to silver tones.

What I’m wearing:
Jeans: J Brand Lovestory -indigo wash-
T-shirt: Grey burnout –
Belt: Forever 21 (it’s stretchy!)
Scarf: Pashmina ($12.99 version -a little store called Mainly Seconds in the Valley)
Shoes: Michael Antonio (not expensive 🙂
Sunglasses: Gucci: sheild/purple/silver circa 2005
Handbag: Marc by Marc Jacobs (New!)

…and now, Eleven Things
{La Belette Rouge nominated me to list my eleven things …so here goes}

1. Clothes Shop: This is a hard one because I really get my clothes from everywhere. I never wear a brand head to toe. I like to mix expensive with inexpensive with down right cheap with vintage …and sometimes I wear creations I’ve made.

2. Furniture Shop: Designs Within Reach, Blueprint, Vintage

3. Sweet: Chocolate!!! or Chocolate Haagen Dazs

4. City: I’ve lived all over Los Angeles, and I mean all over it …but never by the beach …and I’d like to head in that direction when we buy …like La Jolla. But we’re gonna have to mine for gold to afford that beach town.

5. Drink: mostly water but I love Root Beer with lemon and drinking my brother’s dr. pepper.

6. Music: Anything I can sing and dance to or that alters my mood or perception.

7. TV Series: Project Runway {but here’s the full list}

8. Film: new favorite as of this weekend: “Iron Man”

9. Workout: I really hate “working out” but I try to stay active. I have a lot of muscle mass in my body which I used to hate when I was younger but have learned to like with age. I take the stairs at work – always! I do the perfect push-up about 3 times a week {because I don’t know if you’ve noticed by my shoulders and arms are HUGE and the perfect push up tones them down a bit} and I try to stretch {which is my own version of yoga and pilates} every night …but sometimes I’m just too tired. Oh, I also do a lot of hand stands …but that’s mostly for fun!

10. Pastries: I don’t really go for pastries but I love english muffins.

11. Coffee: Gelson’s brand Hawaiian Kona blend …which just so happens to be double the price of all the other Gelson’s coffees …weird. but so good.

Eleven nominees: Holly @ Zucchero, Zucchero, M. @ Book Bitten, Katie @ She’s Lump, Courtney @ inside the loop, beach bungalow 8, and Kell @ BeeTeeDubs …and that’s all I can do for now….but, it’s a fun list …so I say, do it even if I didn’t nominate you.

    Love the pics. They are my favorite part of your blog. I like also have pants that are way too long and have yet to go to the tailor. So when I’m in need of black pants I must wear my 3 1/2 inch heels to look normal. 🙂

    Loved your 11 things, but boo! you didn’t nominate me! Don’t worry I still like you.
