He saw horses, horses, horses...

Obliquely ironic horse t-shirt: UO
Over-the-knee socks: SockDreams
Navy wool mini-skirt: American Eagle via TJ Maxx (hellllll yeah)
Oxford shoes: Steve Madden
Leather bookbag: Thrifted

Avon kitty-cat watch: Thrifted

Today's post -- or, really, almost every post -- is dedicated to my official blog photographer Perry. Perry is a dear friend, and he takes just about every picture posted here (though the occasional collaboration with talented folks like Ryan Hyde and Andrew Leahey are always incredibly awesome).

Perry spends an unfathomable amount of time indulging me in myriad ways: when we're not watching movies, talking about movies, and reviewing movies, he's sending me hilarious animated gifs to keep me laughing throughout the workday, or just happily chatting with me about anything. And of course, when Perry does snap my picture, he captures every funny little moment that transpires while the camera is on -- even though most of them find me looking pretty silly. But, of course, silliness is what kickass friendships are all about.


  1. Oh my god, that kitty watch! I'd do just about anything to own something similar *_*
