"When I split an infinitive, God damn it, I split it so it will stay split."

...and other reasons Raymond Chandler is my hero.

"When I split an infinitive, God damn it, I split it so it will stay split."

"When I split an infinitive, God damn it, I split it so it will stay split."

"When I split an infinitive, God damn it, I split it so it will stay split."

I've had this dress for a couple years and it's kind of my go-to summer dress, because it makes me feel like a bond girl. Of course, the boots don't hurt.

  1. Those boots are amazing, you're so lucky you have long legs to be to pull them off.

    And your haircut suits you well! I think the hair in combination with the dress reminds me of Agent strawberry fields from the latest Bong movie!
