Yesterday I got a little thrill when I received an email from Martine at American Apparel that one of my looks was featured on their Slim Slack page (I'm down in the bottom right-hand corner :-).  It's an honor to be featured by such an iconic brand.

I was tagged by the lovely katie d to do 10 things that make me happy.  I haven't done a tag in a while and this one sounded nice, so here goes...
  1. fabrics so soft and thin, they teeter upon the brink of nothingness
  2. absurd shoes (obv.)
  3. beautiful weather - being a corporate zombie, enjoying sunshine feels a little bit bad and dangerous
  4. soda, in all shapes and sizes
  5. flowers, especially when gifted - I know. I'm such a girl, but B could give me a dandelion that he picked from the side of the road and I would still squeal with delight.
  6. ditto on presents in general - candy, cards, dresses, jewelry - I'll take 'em all with a smile on my face.
  7. tacos, like my soul sister, Crystal Renn
  8. naughty animals - for some reason they're so much cuter when they're bad and they know it
  9. Netflix for the Wii - life-changing
  10. wine - I asked B repeatedly to help me complete this list and that was his only response.
Helmut Lang top
C&C California tank top
Abercrombie jean shorts
vintage belt
Jeffrey Campbell clogs
KMRii bag

PS I was also quite delighted to see my look on the Chictopia homepage today :-)

    7. Love the look. I have a similar sheet top hanging in my closet that I never could figure out what to do with. It is a great idea to pair it with jeans shorts. Congrats on the 'features'.
