Ghost in Your Arms





I love wearing these shoes! Men are outraged and women are a little envious.
They're my geisha shoes. When my family and best friend saw them they all agreed they were weird but amazing.

I love this long skirt more than all the others. I was pretty much crazy about my outfit for this post so i hope you guys like it.
I've been tired but less worried. I was trying to help my bf find a different apartment because his current room mate is a monster from hell. It's kind of interesting to look for rooms in the so called "gentrification zone". trying to convince a stranger that they can live with you can be interesting but can also cause inadvertent self- reflection. He settled for a giant space in a quiet part of Long Island City. I'm so happy. If i had to go to another "tree house " loft with a bunch of high twenty somethings who all consider themselves artists, i was going to beg him to stay with the monster.
We went to this one place in East Williamsburg where the guy showing us the apartment was not only completely out of it (i.e. talking to himself for long periods of time) but also got into an intense argument with one of the room mates. He referred to the guy as a squatter because he was refusing to leave or pay rent !
Nine people and one bathroom. To top it off, the toilet was clogged and/or broken when we got there.
Now we are trying to find a room mate to move into his old room in a nice part of Brooklyn. We expect tons of replies and now we get to read through the emails and wonder about these random strangers. Who will convince us they are worthy of a nice room in a prime gentrification area?
My life is pretty much taking a better, less ugly, shape. April is always my best month.

Edit :some gorgeous piece of work i decided to add last minute . I'm hoping they come to NYC soon!:

You are breathtakingly beautiful in this outfit. I adore that skirt! It seems to flow on you and gives you a very magical glow. :)

I wish you and your bf good luck with the roommate search. I hope he finds a decent guy. I know how difficult it can be to find someone who is easy to live with. There are a lot of annoying weirdos out there. Sigh.

I'm also very pleased to see that your life is getting better. Yay! I tend to find my spirits rise during the warmer weather as well...xoxo.

You look really beautiful in these pictures. The skirt fits you so well.
And I get why you friends and family had mixed feelings about the shoes. I am experiencing the same thing myself. I can´t stop looking at them, they are so fascinating.
