We found love

 Thrifted jacket, thrifted button-up button-up shirt, Mossimo Black faux leather/contrasting knit material leggings, Mark shoes, Forever 21 clutch, Timex watch

Forgive me for not showing more full-body outfit pictures besides my side profile one.  My "photographer" (The Boyfriend) is not quite a photographer so out of all ten full-body pictures that he took of me, this was the only one in which I am not in an unflattering angle or in the midst of talking or blinking.  Sorry, baby, I love you and I love your effort... but next time I'm using my tripod!  0:)

This jacket is one of my many finds from thrifting on 2nd St. in Long Beach yesterday- it's also one of my favorite and cheapest out of the bunch.  It was only $7!  It's very well-made, the design is so unique, and I love the flower attachments to the tuxedo-inspired neckline and collar.  There are huge shoulder pads sewn into the jacket, which is not relevant to me since I already have broad shoulders, so I might have to remove that.  

I've been on the verge of being sick for the past couple of days, but this morning when I woke up, my throat felt like it was on fire.  I had to cancel all of my big plans today (including going to a museum over fifty minutes away to research for a historical costume report that I have to write).  Yeah, that was not going to happen.  So instead, I dropped off my car at the dealership because it was in desperate need of its second oil change (it's only over a year old- you can see bits and pieces of the dark gray Corolla in the picture above.)  The estimated time of service was about two hours, so I had my boyfriend pick me up to go get lunch.  We had a dificult time deciding where to eat because it was either 1) McDonald's where we eat almost every day, 2) too expensive, or 3) too far.  Then Primo remembered how we've been talking about trying out Five Guy's Burger and Fries, so we googled the nearest location, and after many U-turns and little quarrels over directions, we finally tried Five Guy's.  

And it was sosososososSO good.  We found love in Five Guy's Burgers and Fries.  I mean, seriously, how can you not? 

Doesn't this make you DROOL of hunger?!?!?!  They gave us so many Cajun fries that we ended up packing a whole bag filled with them because both of us could not finish one order of it with our meals.  

Then I accidentally left and forgot the bag of leftover fries next to the beverage station after I refilled my drink.

We were not happy campers after that. 


  1. Okay we have way too many things in common: boyfriends/hubby's who can't take good photos (lol) and burgers and fries!!! Love love love your jacket! I'm adding you to my blog roll. If you get a chance, check out my blog and follow if you'd like. :)
