in between two pines

i wore this outfit to work on monday - kind of blah, but i happened to snap a shot of it, it's nothing too special.  these pants i rediscovered from the back of the pants/jeans drawer (which is overflowing might i add) - i kind of lost my liking for them a while back - not sure why.  i think they made my butt look big - KIDDING, omg.
the blouse is borrowed from my friend olga - or 'swapped' rather.  sidenote: swapping clothes with friends of similar sizes.  try it! your husbands/boyfriends will love you.


we spent some time with friends at a cabin in tahoe this last weekend.  i powered through some dry parts of crime and punishment, but am extremely involved in this book at the moment.  so much so i had to lend my 'french women don't get fat' to my friend christine because quite frankly, no matter how much you think you juggle two books at one time - you CANT.  there.  well, that's the case for me anyway.  how did i get through college?  bah!

about this sweater - i bought it for myself at a thrift store in miami - and guess who it fits better?

i love the shots our wide angle lens takes.  this one in fact reminds me of a snow-ey version of some of 'massimo vitali's work - my friend liska pointed him out in one of her posts a while back (i had to go way back on your blog, liskers) - ever since then, high contrast and high aperture wide-angle shots like this remind me of him.  but i'm no photographer (and not very critique-savvy either - so if it's nothing like his work in your 'pinion, sorry).

we built lolita the snow-lady - only to break her after her photo shoot.


that's a shot of wes and i - getting ready for a picture.  i'm just wearing my snowboarding gear.  there's really very little you can do to stay fashion-forward while playing in the snow - snowboarding gear is the most snow-proof apparel, but visually, it's like a culture of its own.  the prints and patterns are rarely to my liking (usually some form of neon-plaid-camo-concoction).  however - when i'm rolling around in snow, i don't think i care that much, haha.



this is us lounging around.  we intended to watch a movie, but ended up watching 'in between two ferns' on our phones.  oh zack g. how you master the art of awkward and inappropriate.


that is that.  in other news - i'm reaching out to the folks for whom i did make-up and hair work to compile a fun little portfolio.  i suck at documenting.  it's like there's work out there that i did that i never put my signature on - so much harder to reclaim after the fact.  geez.

and olya and i recommitted our focus to our shops today.  we're fist-pumping excited.  go tuesdays.



  1. hey -- bring your camera, you can use me for your make-up portfolio

  2. is that my blouse? i thought it was yours! haha.

  3. LOL - now that you say it, i'm really not sure whose blouse it is. oh wellers.
    it'll end up in both our closets either way.

    kat'ka! you got it sista!

  4. The funniest part is me strutting in there like I own the place to make up for it. "I'm walking so confidently, of course I'm not sneaking anything in guys". Haha.

  5. I love the wide angle shot!!
