Get Yr Crayons Out

When I was in high school, my mom did this awesome thing when I got broken up with. I would be depressed, stay up all night watching the same episode of Gilmore Girls, and then wake up and go shopping somewhere crazy with my mom. This shirt, along with a pair of ankle cigarette Joe's Jeans and a tunic, were my first purchases from Anthropologie, the products of my last ever break up prior to meeting my husband.

My Fei via Anthropologie break up blouse on top of the Eiffel Tower, September 2006

Many of the things in this outfit are amazing things I have had for a few years. From the blouse to my treasured Marc by Marc Jacobs mouse flats to the vintage dinosaur earrings I bought at an antique store in California.

Now if only the wind had not totally attacked my hair, especially prior to meeting new people!

  6. Good god, I really want to steal this outfit from you:) Loving it to pieces!! That sounds like the most fantastic ritual ever...I most definitely could have used that when I was in high school. My mom used to bust out this James Taylor cd for me...haha....we'd play it over and over in the car on my way to school after a breakup. It actually did the trick:)
