Zoe Much Drama!

I love shoes... and when I say that, I mean I won't go out for several weekends so that I can save up money to buy a good new pair of shoes.
Well, I'd been a very good girl (money-saving wise) when I spotted the Zoe's back on so, I decided to do some more digging around and arrived at ... where not only could I order the Zoe's in my size, but I could also get a discount ($20 USD, but who cares ... it's dinner for one).
So I ordered them and I went around the house with a stupid grin on my face for some time ... until I noticed that there was a new email in my inbox. Oh noooo!! The order WAS CANCELLED! Perhaps because my mom's credit card (mine was unceremoniously taken away and cut in half by the parents) is Mexican. Yep, even websites are discriminative (jk!)
Obviously, I got up bright and early on Saturday (meaning: 11:00am) and called up and asked why, oh whyy, had my payment not been accepted. Turns out the problem was, in fact, that mommy's card isn't from the U.S. Talk about discriminative, no? That poor card has done nothing but nice things for the U.S. economy :( She suffered unjustly (but my dad gloated). In the end I had to call my grandfather and ask him for his credit card number ... so, after all the drama, I went into the page and they were out on size 7s! #WTF
It was only, literally, a couple of hours
So I just went back to and now, THE ZOE'S ARE ON THEIR WAY TO ME! At last!!

Para el Jueves

So, yesterday I told ya'll about a terrible experience ( the one involving a man and a pair of (f)UGGs)... I'm sure you were as traumatized as I was.
However, I also mentioned that I FINALLY wore that sheer Anne Klein blouse that I bought way back in November. It had been collecting dust (literally, yuck), so I decided to take it out of that miserable place that is otherwise known as My Closet. Yay!
Bueno, pues ayer les conté una horrible experiencia que tuve (aquella que tenía algo que ver con un hombre y un par de botas UGGs)... estoy segura que ustedes se traumaron tanto como yo.
Sin embargo, tambi
én mencioné que POR FIN usé la blusa transparente de Anne Klein que compré este noviembre pasado. Ya estaba acumulando polvo (literalmente, igh), asi que decidi sacarla de ese miserable lugar que también se conoce como Mi Clóset. Yay!

Top: thrifted Anne Klein ($10 USD, wuuu)
Jeans: Forever 21
SweaterVest: Zara
Coat: Forever 21
Booties: MARKET
Socks: Nine West
Hat: thrifted David & Young
Rings: Dillard's finds

PS. I took a horrible fall all the way down to the floor (with the chair) trying to get close ups of the booties ... that's why those photos of the shoes are so shitty, I gave up after the fall.
PD. Me caí horrible y hasta al suelo (con todo y silla) cuando estaba intentando tomar unos close ups de los botines ... por eso es que las fotos de los zapatos están tan ojetes, me di por vencida después de la caída.

PPS. The boyfriend made me a twitter account ... I'm still getting the hang of it, though.
PPD. Mi novio me hizo una cuenta de twitter ... aunque todavía estoy intentando entenderla.

Gonna Go Wash My Eyes With Bleach...

Today I saw something that made me want to rip my eyes out ... and then erase my memory so I could forget that image forever.
I'd seen photos online, but it was SO much worse to see it in person!!
Hoy vi algo que hizo que quisiera arrancarme los ojos ... y despues borrar mi memoria para poder olvidar esa imagen por el resto de mi vida.
Ya había visto fotos en internet, pero fue MUCHO peor verlo en persona!!

This was my reaction:
Esta fue mi reacción:

I saw .... a MAN wearing UGGs D:
UGGs, I tell you!!!!
Vi ... a un hombre con UGGs!
UGGs, les digo!!!!

Sadness, tears, desperation, and suicide thoughts flooded my head at that moment ... I wonder if he knows those boots are (a) ugly and (b) originally meant for women (even though not even women should wear them)... maybe he drives on the other side of the road, as Joey would've said. Who knows, who knows??

PS. I finally got to wear that thrifted sheer Anne Klein blouse I got back in November. Yay!
PD. Por fin usé la blusa usada, transparente de Anne Klein que compré en noviembre. Yay!
