the ugly earring

ug‧ly [uhg-lee] offensive to the sense of beauty; displeasing in appearance


Aristotle Onassis, once said of his clandestine lover, Maria Callas: “You are a nobody. You’re just a woman with a whistle stuck in her throat.”

(whether it’s true or not, i’m not sure. I just found it here.)


the staple


if it wasn’t 100+ degrees i’d wear this outfit everyday.

in other words, minus the tights, this is already my staple look:

  • wooden heels
  • frumpy cardigan (on big business days it’s a tailored jacket)
  • grandma purse
  • quirky dress
  • hair part
  • (and we can’t forget the editor glasses that slip down the nose)
  • and always fugly jewelry
