twisted

finally got myself a leather jacket! and decided to wear it today, the hottest day, so far, of the year! haha a bit silly i suppose, but i have good reason to... its one of those "it might reach 70" days, but the low is going to be in the 50s, so its not like i can run around in a tshirt and jeans and feel totally comfortable. instead i've decided to go extremely summery underneath and the leather jacket is a good cover up when it gets a bit breezy.

still trying to get used to wearing so much leather... it makes that weird squishy sound when i move my arms. and its got that smell. and i cant help but feel a bit like michael jackson. i've already annoyed everyone so much by going, "but dont you think i look a little like i just stepped out of the thriller video?" anyways.. hopefully it will pass. if not, i might have to put this one up for sale. haha thats my back up plan for everything!

also went shopping this past weekend and bought two new pairs of jeans. i've been abusing my current skinny jeans. i have 2 pairs that i like that i've been switching back and forth between, every week, for the past year. so i think it was time to invest in some more. dont get me wrong though, i still love the old ones to death -- j brand. i love them... even after so much wear and frequent washing they still havent lost their stretch and there is some fading in the color, but its minimal. thats probably the only reason why i'd prefer name-brand jeans to cheapo jeans, they definitely do last! (probably also depends on the brand too) so the new ones i've added into my collection -- a pair of black tsubi (or ksubi they now call them in the states) skinny zip jeans and a pair of greyish blue radcliffe jeans.

my reviews for them so far? the tsubi's (er.. ksubi's) are awesome! theyre the perfect length for me. im short, and they actually arent super duper long like every other pair of jeans i own. the ankle zip allows me to wear them over heels without stretching out the bottoms. and i love... LOVE the markings on them. they're cool and recognizable, but theyre not loud and tacky.

the second pair from radcliffe, i hadnt actually worn outside yet. im just glad theyre not "just another pair of black jeans" because... well, theyre greyish blue. haha. im loving the little slit in the back pocket that allows a bit of color and fabric to peek through.

but ok, enough about my weekend... today, i am spending some time online looking at tees... im not a big fan of the normal everyday casual tees. i love tees that are casual, but also different. these are just that... with a twist! twisted in the front, twisted around the neck, and twisted in the back!

are those the ones you just bought, the ksubis? great jeans! they look perfect on you! I don't like the jacket so much though - i prefer cropped over long this year! but still nice!

you look extremely cool in that leather jacket of yours and you don't look short at all! i agree with the kitten though- i prefer a bit shorter version. i also am in loveeee with the ksubi jeans- the markings and the ankle zip makes them extra cool.

i want a pair of tsubis but i've never tried them on before. what size do you wear? they say they run small... so i'm not sure what to get. what size do you get from there and what sizes do you get from the other jeans brands?

you look great here. i don't know if its the angle of the camera, but you look very much like a model, very tall and slender.
