7.7.10

epic. poopy. mouth. in that order.


The zipper was broken on these pants.  Thats why a perfectly wonderful pair of nearly new J. Crew high waist pants found themselves at the thrift store for $3.00.  So I had it fixed (embarrassingly for $15 by a seamstress instead of just doing it myself).  I got them home today and all I could do was think "So how would Zoe wear these?" I styled them EXACTLY as she had without even looking, then changed it up to be a little more me-ish. Ya, I just changed my shirt from a plain tucked in tee, to a vintage sweater. These types of things just happen though.  I have said it before. and it will happen again.

So, MAN, I felt like poop yesterday.  I seriously could not recover from the super exciting and exhausting weekend, and its strange because I checked twitter just once and it seemed like everyone was feeling the same way so I just sort of decided that it was an epic bad day for everyone and I should just accept it, (but then I talked to Merl and she was having the most amazing day ever so I guess maybe it was just lame for some) But my point is I still feel pretty poopy so I'm just going to stop complaining and get over it. I am sure the planets will realign soon and I will feel much better tomorrow.  Or maybe I will just go to the thrift shops since it seems to be all in my head anyway.  Sorry, this is maybe the most boring post ever.  Bla bla bla.  Such diarrhea of the mouth.  I try to close it and it just keeps running out.  Blaaaaaaa. I also feel really guilty that I have not been around to blogs. I AM really happy that my husband is so rad, though. And hot. And I love it when he types over my shoulder and adds little tidbits to my posts. blllaaaaaaaaa. Okay STOP!!  and that water on the ground is not pee.  I was in a water fight just before these pictures were taken. OK DONE.

Seriously, Christina! I think this is one of the least boring! Hahah, you cracked me up! When I first saw the photo I said: Christina in pants! I think you styled it very well too, except the fact that you and Zoe have the same shoes in different colors :D I can imagine, you two will be very good friends :)

I love your heels! You have heels in the best colors ever!

Sorry yesterday sucked, my day was okay, but only okay. I had to tell another blogger I couldn't visit her in Chicago this summer due to lack of funds because I found my one main job fell through...

Love the sweater and shoes together. That color is so pretty.

Reading the title of your post gave me horrible mental images (poopy. mouth.).

And then reading your claim that the water on the ground is not pee, just water.

My co-workers think I'm crazy for laughing out loud.

The pants came out to $18... not bad! I thought to myself (an old cheerleading chant...embarassing) S, score score, C, score score, S.C.O.R.E score score...LOL ok, done but nice find :)

I love the contradiction of dark clouds in the back ground and sunlight in the fore ground. Plus the colors of your top and shoes gives a nice effect to the whole thing. Love it!!

PS : I can never pull of a slacks like the way you too, you have a great body darling!!

Hey, if you feel poopy, just feel poopy. I don't mind.

And I feel you on it too. I feel like crap still. And I didn't even drink too much on July 4th. My head feels foggy and I have a headache and I want to bathe in 5 hour energy drinks or something.

PS - Killer bolo :)

Oh dude- those pants are just insane. And the top choice is so unexpected. This is totally not at all what I had pictured- but it's given me inspiration for a kinda similar sweater shirt that I haven't put to work yet.

And the bag and the bolo are just excellent little icings on this delicious, miami/santa fe flavored cake.

And I still feel poopy TOO! Up at the crack with cramps until I fell asleep on my heating pad for a good hour and a half.

Things are looking up, though I think. I've got rain which made me happy, and you had a water fight which must have been awesome.

My Uranus dance totally worked.

Shallow Mallow said...

Looking great. Hope the second half of the week proves more inspiring! :)

Kara Marie said...

Nikki said...

Ah you're blond! When did that happen? I should keep up with my favorite blogs more. I love your shoes and your husbands tidbits were interesting (: I'll try to keep up with you more so next time I won't be so shocked when your hair color changes (which I like btw)

The Daily Fashionista said...

Well I for one am ecstatic that it wasn't really pee on the ground..hahaha... I loved your writing today. Sorry you felt like poop yesterday. I swear, I hate it when I and others around me all have to experience suckiness from time to time.

And the shoes absolutely kick ass by the way! Love them. The color is really bright and cheerful:)

amanda said...

that is hilarious because i think merl may be the only one who is having a good week. i have felt like crap lately and so have a lot of my non blog friends (i know i actually have those). but whatever, you look hot in those pants. and really that's what matters.

Fia said...

heh. epic poopy mouth.

Those are great shoes! Someday, someday I will wear heels again.

Yesterday was miserable!! It's always so hard getting back in the swing of things after a long weekend. Short weeks are sometimes the hardest in my opinion!! Luckily, I'm still cruising on good vibes and residual laughter from this weekend.

Looks like you made it out for some outfit photos just in time!! Looks rainy where you are. If it does rain, you should take the opportunity to ignore all responsibilities and lay in bed with a movie and your hot husband and adorable son and watch a movie to recover from your poopy mood.

Great outfit and awesome find! =)

MarchMusings said...

First saw bola ties in Arizona when I visited years ago and I love how you've worn it here.

Glitter Scrubs said...

Super happy you cleared up the water on the concrete, because the first thing I thought was oh god she peed all over the sidewalk. Saved us from some awkward times! :)
I'm trying to comprehend how you discover all these amazing thrifted finds! Clearly there are some very generous people in Nevada.

Hello Cristina!
I1m new to your blog, but I love everything. I'm from Brazil, if my english is difficult, sorry. I REALLY enjoyed a topic in which you show a outfit with a scarf used as a blouse. But i dont understood the lashing. Could you do a step-by-step?
Thank you

Lívia said...

About your look today: GORGEOUS. As I wanted to have places in Brazil that sells clothing such as target in the U.S.. But it has not. I also liked the cloudy sky contrasting with the sun on your body. You used some light? Or was it a phenomenon of daylight?

KellyAnn said...

you are wearing the heck out of those pants! i am florescent green with envy. They look spectacular on you!

Neekoh said...

I am so incredibly lustful over this sweater. If you ever decide to sell it, holler at me!

XXo,
Neekoh

Anna said...

Drooling over the entire outfit, love that the J. Crew pants make your legs look soooo tall and I love reading your writing!
