the angels wanna wear my red shoes

Alex and I woke up to sunshine coming through my window, so we decided to eat our breakfast outside. We had oatmeal, toast, and tea :) Delight in my still-wet hair and makeup-less face!


sweater: thrift (Alex came across this one in the store <3) -- skirt: thrift -- boots: thrift -- tights: Marshall's


Hippo orgy Taylor & Ng mug my mom gave me! I use this thing like five times a day. I'm obsessed with tea.


This is Alex's "Sophi, I've been up for half an hour, get that camera out of my face" expression.


Alex and I finally managed to take a halfway decent photo of us. We have a tendency to be the ones taking photos at parties, so even when we aren't by ourselves, there never ends up being any photos of us. Bah!

I went to go see Harry Potter (again, even better this time!) with my family and our family friends. Afterwards we had the best Indian meal I've had in my life. And you're talking to a girl who has had a lot of Indian food.

Here is a photo of me and my sisters! This is quite an event, you see. One of my sisters lives in Mexico, the other lives in Massachusetts, and I live here in the Bay Area. There were two cameras out, which means that we're looking in different, weird directions in all the photos. Oops. I liked how this one turned out, even though we're not looking at the right camera :P


Rachel (oldest), Molly (middle), and me (youngest). This looks like a Starbucks ad.

I hope you're all having a lovely, festive time! I think I won't post again until Boxing Day, so all my warmest holiday wishes your way :)

Today's title comes from Elvis Costello -- The Angels Wanna Wear My Red Shoes.

And a little shoutout to remind you to enter my sweater and purse giveaway!

That hippo mug is insanity! I would use it so much if I had it too :)

Also, your comment made me chuckle because I'm from Southern California (born and raised!) but I think I "chew" on my vowels sometimes which could probably be interpreted as having a slight accent!

Well, you still manage to look totally gorgeous even with no makeup and wet hair! Goodness... you are a stunner!

And I am very excited about your idea to do a blogger feature for eachother! It's something I've never done (but always wanted to do!) and I would love to start something new for my blog. Whenever you would want to do the feature, just let me know all the details! If you would like I can think up some questions to ask you ,or you may think them up yourself :)

Merry Christmas, and hope you are doing well!

haha I love how you're all looking in different directions! I always like seeing pictures of sisters, spotting differences and likenesses. Y'all look adorable!

I was just thinking about your comment: you really are the only girl I know who mixes 80s and 60s fashion in such a perfectly unique, organic way. Your style is really "you" and I love it :)

your hair looks fiery in that first pic btw!

my boyfriend and I never get nice pics taken either, I'm always the picturetaker too when we go out. Besides, whenever other people take pics of me I look like shit. I just have a very expressive face (which looks like it is melting in sponaneous pics)!


and yes, we have an upstairs and a downstairs. We actually have three floors, so two upstairs and a downstairs :D And a tiny cellar, so two upstairs and two downstairs I guess :D the perks of having an older "settled" boyfriend :)


btw I was thinking, I really like you and I've sort of started considering you as a far away friend I'd like to keep up with, so if you want you can add me on facebook! :D

Aww... sweet picture! You and sisters look a lot alike. Some people say me and my sister look like but in some ways we are complete opposites. Your sweater is fabulous too by the way. And I'm jealous you can still look so adorable in the morning with out any makeup on!
XOXO
