contortionist.

y'all know i have a huge obsession with elbow patches.
until now, most could only be found at places like h&m and zara. we have neither here.
so i went on a frenzy recently when i saw that forever 21 had gazillions online. i started with five or six in my cart
but sensibly checked out with two...this blazer and the
green sweater in the previous post.
i assumed it was going to be a regular light-weight
rayon blazer typical of certain forever 21 items.
turns out it's a thicker, sweatshirt-like material.
forget the layering and pretty blouses underneath...
i'll be sweating in this one for sure.

what's your current obsession?

fried and fried.

now if only i could show you these fabulous elbow patches.
maybe if i twist my arm just right?
nope.
or twist my back and bend over (wtf?)?
close.
or just raise my arm a little?
closer.
gah, i'll just turn around.
(blazer, f21 (similar)(similar); shorts, express (similar);
tank, nordstrom (similar)(similar); shoes (buy in blue)(similar))

  5. Gah, I'm totally obsessing over elbow patches but don't have anything with them! I saw online for a DIY to make heart patches which I'm going to try soon. I looove this blazer, it's really pretty weird that its thick though! Looks great with the shorts and all those shots of you trying to show the patches made me giggle

  7. ooohhhh, i so love that blazer. and the elbow patches are adorable. i saw this awesome patterned blazer with patches at H&M though can't justify buying it at the moment. i did go and snag that leopard print top from Old Navy you wore the other day. can't wait to wear it!!!

  31. Oh noes, chicken nuggets. Probably my big McD's weakness right there.

    Right now, as always, I am obsessed with long, heavy swishy skirts. Which is a shame because it's raining buckets lately and floor-dragging hems do not mix well with puddles.

  32. You hair looks beautiful in these pictures!!
    I know this is so gross, but chicken nuggets from McDick's are SO good!

  52. I totally thought of you on my lunch hour today, because I was at Target, and on the clearance rack there were several jackets with elbow patches for a mere $24.95, and I thought - OOOOOOH, I wonder if Becks has seen these...They were The Cutes.

    Also cute? That damn ring in the post below that looks just like the YSL arty ring. I SOOOOO need that in my life.

    merci!
