all alone.

T-vintage.dress.aa.vest.zara.boots.zoom.clutch.UO.
break time.
So amidst all the books. notes. studying I ventured out this Saturday night...alone.
The BF was on call so I figured why stay home... I was already in my aa dress + T, so I zipped up my booties, slipped on my vest and high-tailed it to one of my favourite spots. I sat. daydreamed. read a book (non-school related) and chowed down on some sushi. It was a local joint and they know me + my regular order, therefore I was saved from looking like a crazy woman having a mini-date with herself. Sometimes its just what the soul needs.
SO...
I desperately need to shop. I have been so busy + online shopping (anyone else out there share the same addiction ? My rationalization: we don't have any of my favourite stores here, so its okay. It's what I WOULD buy if I was living in North America). I do have some fun vacations coming up in Dec/Jan/Feb so it is good for savings/dream fund...hmmmmmm savings.

Good on you for taking yourself out while the boyfriend is away, it is liberating sometimes to just go and do things for yourself :) You look great in that outfit, it is very rock'n'roll. I also definitely share your need for shopping, especially online since we don't get all of the American brands here in Aus :D

Grace said...

Love your blog my dear.
Love all your daring outfits, up here in Joburg it's not very easy to be so daring like the fellow overseas bloggers without people staring at you..
Am so adding you to my blog list..

Mel said...

Mimi said...

Such a cool rock 'n' roll outfit. The shirt is awesome and such a great vintage piece.I like th vest,booties and clutch also a lot.

stilettostetico said...

Or a "casual/Glamazon-esque style" !!! And your legs really are synonym of " SEXYness-issime sculptural slenderness" !!!

A Bientôt, Antoine

Fashionistadiary said...

you look adorable in that pic!! dont you just love aa skirts and dresses! theyre so versatile!! you have fabulous legs! really hope your exams went well!! xo

Emily said...

i actually love having dates with myself! sometimes if there's a movie that none of my friends/boyfriend want to see, i'll totally go solo and enjoy every minute of it! at least you looked great :)

Susanna-Cole said...

Oh please, I don't think it'd be possible for you to look like "crazy woman having a mini-date with herself" when you're dressed as amazing as that! Love the whole hip t-shirt, vest, and skirt, and ankle boots combination, just perfect!

And oh well I've only recently gotten a credit/debit card, so until then it's not like I could of bought anything online even if I wanted too. However, I'm a little hesitant to shop online... I have a feeling it'd become addicting!

And aw, well your sweet comments and words always render me speechless too, I guess it's a wonder we managae to ever find words to say anything to each other! But I'm sure glad we do, cause I love talking to you!

I also wish there was something to said that was more adquete (sp) than "Thank You" too, but I guess for now, it's all we got sometimes! :)

Hope you're having a lovely Monday, even though Mondays seem to be the least liked day of the week! :P

Take care! :)

xoxo,

In a way, I think blogging is kind of like the song "Lean on Me", we all depend on each other's updates and comments! That is what makes it all the more fun. Thanks for always taking the time to update and to comment mine, as well! ♥

Grey is your color, awesome skirt and ankle booties!! LOOOOOVE your shirt, That Clash is my favorite.. London Calling :)

♥ Marta ♥ said...

YOU look sensational .... WOW. You should model, totally the right material :)

As for shopping on line, OMG I do it all the time ...definately order something couple times a month ... It is my source of dressing.... LOVE IT. It's so relaxing and easy, I prefer it over shopping in the mall... Hehe:)

Laurel said...

BB Lis! You're one hothothot face and I love you long time.

I DID get your emails, I'm sorry I didn't let you know sooner. School is maddening, but when I get an ounce of downtime, I promise you a response. I hope school is going okay, I'm in the midst of this ridiculous paper and keep getting distracted by the most ridiculous things. I have the attention span of a 3 year old.

Uhm, ps - meant to be much? I have that vest too!! We're basically amazing. Maybe I'll wear it tomorrow? ;)

Eelie said...

Oh Lisa shhhhhh with your compliments. They make me feel embarrased and shy lol. I'm glad you did a solo flight that night! Its always very liberating to just go to a frequent haunt and just chillax especially in all the chaos of exam prep!

Nice transition from day wear to night wear also!

FASHIONJUNK said...

you have a great style, love your blog!

Lisa said...

Sunniva said...

Sweetie, you look WONDERFUL!! You are such a stunner and your outfits are always the best! And I know I've said it before, but you have such amazing legs! And I agree a 100 % with you: sometimes you just really need to go on a date with none other than yourself :)

Maria said...

Hi gorgeous!

Sorry, I've been so busy the last days so I haven't got the chance to answer you!

About your mom and grandmother - I'm sorry to hear that. Truly. I can't imagine how it feels like.. Oh Lisa.
Thanks for sharing though, that is brave of you! I don't know what to say really.. But I'm happy I get to support such an important cause :)

you're the best
love you xxx

No soy tu estilo said...

freya said...

a bit rock n' roll, a bit casual... i like it ;)


the tee is great.

Fashion Fille said...

that sounds so fun! you look awesome, so i bet lots of people were jealous that you were on a date with yourself. :)

The Clothes Horse said...

You look great. Sushi and a novel sounds like an ideal evening right now.
I'm not doing online shopping right now, but I'm still not certain what savings are nor what good they are for...

Wendy said...

I love what you are wearing Lisa!

Jenny H. said...

ah thank you!
you are looking stunning yourself.

i love your clash band t-shirt. i lovee the clash!
last summer i lived in the couple of clash band t-shirts that i have... might just have to find them now i have seen you rocking yours!

Raych said...

If you come to the States, we should get a ton of bloggers to meet up!

I seriously just sit and "study" while glancing over Topshop and Yoox. All day. But for me, I just need to save money. I usually spend every penny I get and live paycheck by paycheck.

You look fantastic though, and the way you mixmatch your clothes looks great! It never looks the same and that takes a true fashionista (;

love ya doll

rachel said...

i have that same vest from zara! :) it's in one of my posts too, somewhere..

and btw, can i just say, your legs are amazing.

;)

the healthy ghost said...

I like your t-shirt

Ashleigh said...

oh you look great! i love the clash tshirt :) i see we share a mutual love for vintage band tees!

wish i could've tagged along it sounds like such a relaxing way to spend a saturday night.

and i am completely addicted to internet shopping. living in australia is great but we have a lot of really expensive designer shops or absolute junk, none of this topshop or uo which i wishh for!

and even american apparel (overpriced here) is a 40 minute drive away.

buttt looking gorgeous as always!

Stompface said...

Those booties look cuties!
Yes I am some kind of amazing poet.

You look very very cool here. Love the grey dress layered with the great band tee.

Generics brukar kosta runt en åttondel av de ursprungliga behandlingar och, i ansiktet av det, de ser ut som ett riktigt kap. Detta sagt, det finns många oroande problem med riklig och enkel tillgång av generiska Viagra säljes på internet och de företag som tillhandahåller dem.

Ben istanbuldan selda 22 yaşında konfeksiyon içşisiyim Amatör Porno sizleri bekletmeden hemen hikayeme geçiyorum.. Biz 5 katlı bir binanın en üst katında yaşıyorduk ve bir öğlen paydosunda sevgilim beni Anal Sikiş aradı evdeydim çünkü evle iş yerim arasında 2 dakika bile yoktu.. Bende Asyalı Porno sevgilime benden telefon beklemesini söyledikten sonra evin durumuna baktım evde kardeşlerim ve annemin Esmer Porno birkaçtane arkadaşı vardı bu iş imkansızdı tekrardan düşündüm ve çatı katı aklıma geldi sevgilime telefon açıp çatıya çıkmasını ve Fantazi Porno beni beklemesini söyledikten sonra telefonu bir süre elime almadım anneme işe gidiyorum dedikten sonra Gay Porno hemen üst kata çatıya çıkıp sevgilimin
dudaklarına yumuldum az bir süremiz Götten Sikiş vardı ve çok istiyordum onu hemen önünde diz çöküp sikini çıkardım kocaman olmuştu bile... Özlemişti beni HD Porno bitanem başladım sikini yalamaya kafasını öpüyor onu çıldırtıyordum sevgilim saçlarımdan tutmuş ağzımı keyifle sikerken çatı katının kapısı açıldı toparlanamadan Lezbiyen Porno komşunun şişman oğlu efecan gelmişti ben dizlerimin üzerinde sevgilimin Liseli Porno siki ağzımda yakalanmıştım hemen bu halimizi gören komşu oğlu Sarışın Sikiş kaçarcasına gitti.. Sevgilim bir süre güldükten Türbanlı Porno sonra bu şişko neden kaçtı korktu herhalde onu sikicem sandı galiba dedikten sonra bir kahkaha daha attı ben sevgilimin Türk Porno sikine deli gibi saldırıyor yalıyor emiyordum boşalmasını istiyor Zenci Porno sütünü içmek istiyordum sevgilim ağzımı sike sike boşaldı hepsini yuttum bir damlasını ziyan Porno etmedim ve sevgilimle vedalaşıp ayrıldık... Ben her defasında sikiş yapmadan önce yazporno diye olan türkçe siteden Porno izle bölümüne girip seyrediyorum azdıktan sonra şahane sikiş ile gözleri kamaştırıyorum.
