Favorite ways to whittle away hours of good writing time:

Lookbook: where a bajillion fashion obsessed teens and twenty-somethings post outfit pics from their personal blogs.  This site is like fashion crack.  I have wasted hours of my life scrolling through photos of girls in six inch platform clogs and boys in white linen suits and saddle shoes.

The Sartorialist: where i found this glorious photo:

Who is this wickedly stylish man and why don’t more dudes dress like him??

Liebemarlene Vintage: where blogger Rhiannon Leifheit keeps a daily diary of all her pretty, perfect outfits. How i long to roll out of bed each morning and slip into adorable vintage separates and wooden heels!  Look! She’s a doll:

And too, was she named for the Fleetwood Mac song Rhiannon?  Who doesn’t want to be named after a sexy 70s pop song?

& lastly, the Swedish Hasbeens website: where i’ve spent months lusting after primary colored clogs.  An obsession i can’t quite justify.  Or shake.  I own one precious pair.  These are them:

Next week on the blog:  a post about fish tail braids and renaissance hairdos??  Possibly!  Thrilling, right?  Just you wait.

    Did I tell you I’ve recently had a spout of Stevie Nicks obsession? Unprovoked and out-of-nowhere, even~! WHY?

    Love your blog. Indeed I’m on a similar page (regarding wasting time writing my precious thesis:). The only thing I don’t get is your obsession with clogs. I hate clogs!! (ironic since they probably originated from the same country that produced me).

    Lauren, you crack me up.
    And I went on the vintage clothing site and had to stop b/c all the models had legs nine feet longer than
    Tho, on a happy note, I guess that means I can embrace The Clog;)
