Ext. Hollywood Hotel - Day

She waits outside the Hollywood Hotel and beneath the L.A. sun watching the passerby's in the parking lot through cat eye sunglasses while the wind breaks through her hair causing her to check her reflection in the mirror. Seeing her ride pull up in the window she throws her hair to the side, turns, and enters the 1960 blue Chevy Malibu.

I've mentioned probably too often on this space how I am a complete lover of the light and seem to suffer greatly without it. I see the Aussie and Cali bloggers that I follow living it up in the sun, and it seems that in Tennessee we have been surrounded by some ginormous gray cloud of fog FOR DAYS! Luckily, the rainy weather seemed to break it's bleh pattern and bless us Tennesseeans with a bit of Californication. 60 degrees is a beautiful temperature for January, beautiful! Seeing the sun and a photo of Kate Moss outside the Beverly Hills Hotel on Tumblr I was practically overwhelmed with inspiration (plus I've been spending some time with Hank Moody on Netflix) and found myself pulling on this Bardot Body Con (gasp!, right? It's not every day you see me in this silhouette) from Nasty Gal, the softest fluffiest sweater ever known to man (trust me, I've tried many sweaters and there is none softer than this one) from Forever 21 which had me the moment I saw it was trimmed in gold chain, and some fluffy feathery heels that I've been drooling over for ummmm too long. 

I'm sure you noticed something different about this post, as in the Courier type slug line thing happening at the top of the post. Yes, well as it has also been made very clear that I'm always inspired by stories (both real and made up in my head) and movies, and I view each outfit basically as for a character within those stories or movies. So, I'm really wanting to express myself with that more, and incorporate my inspirations more into my posts so that everything will be more cohesive and I can show the whole process from beginning to end. This also explains my enter in the Youtube world (subscribe to me plz). This will result in a new blog layout and logo as well, but I'm trying to take it slow and spend my time wisely, as getting good quality posts up in a mannerly time is really the most important thing right now. Ok wow, well nobody is probably still reading as I have only been rambling through the last paragraph. Whatever, just enjoy the pictures.
