Sisters From a Different Mister

Jeans? Hudson, thrifted Shirt? h&m (I just got it for $7!) Blazer? Braemar, thrifted
Shoes? LuLu's, giftcard Hat? Joe Fresh Purse? Tignanello, thrifted



For the first and second anniversary of ye olde blog, I wrote and wrote and wrote... Morgan was much wiser. For her first blog birthday, she hired a clown, ordered cupcakes (or are macaroons the cool party treat now?) and challenged her readers to do a Morgan and Lua inspired post for a chance to win some carefully selected jewelry. I entered because I am a fan of winning and because I figured I would be a shoe-in for victory. After all, Morgan and I are two peas in a fashion blogger pod. We couldn't be more alike.

We both like beverages. Granted, hers come steaming in a mug (and cannot be consumed until she has taken a perfect picture of it steaming on a ledge) and mine come in a can with the questionable addition of aspartame. But they are both drinks... and we like to drink said drinks. Our beverage love will unite us forever.

We both understand the importance of a wide brimmed hat to keep up an air of mystery. Perhaps we over share on our blogs and tweeter our every move (I just ate Triscuits and cucumber people!) but in real life, eye contact is not necessary.

Both Morgan and I have the honour of having a necklace named after us. Hers is the Morgan necklace lovingly made by Lisa of Tree and Kimball. Mine is the I am Going to Take Advantage of the Fact that I Am the Only Daughter with Four Brothers and Raid My Mother's Collections necklace. It's lovingly stolen from the aforementioned Mother of mine.

Most importantly, Morgan and I know that if all else fails, throw a noble dog named Lua in the picture. Better yet, add a matching panama/fedora hybrid (?) on her head. Some call matching pet outfits, ridicuolous; in the blogging biz we call it 'upping the game'. If you want to be a winner, you gotta act like one.

I love everything about this outfit! The jeans are so cool and I am jealous of your ability to wear hats! And that necklace! My mom does not have anything that awesome! :(

Morgan and Lua said...

I already like you, then you go and do something like this.

I'm going to try and break your soda habit when you come to New York. Just a warning there. Either that or I'll make you and Merl have a Diet Coke / Diet Pepsi challenge. Winner takes all.

Of course eye contact is not necessary. It's overrated and it generally makes me uncomfortable to stare longingly into my camera lens.

I steal from my mom all the time. In other news thanks for putting a close up of my bubbies on your blog. It feel more real now.

The best part of the photoshopped Lua is that her ears are sticking out the top of the hat. She's a seriously fashion committed dog.

THANK YOU YEN! You did a fantabulous job. I'll save the hug for next week.

Citizen K said...

I don't believe I've ever commented here before but, I just had to tell you how hilarious this post was -right down to the doggie in the hat.

And I just adore your outfit. Those shoes! That hat! That shirt! Love it all.

kelsey said...

THANK YOU for writing all of this and for being so honest. I'm 6 months into all this style-blogging-craziness, and I love ALMOST every minute. I have experienced burnout and am also plagued by the jealousy that you were so candid about.

I have to say that you were one of the sweetest people to me in Austin, and I'm so excited to consider you a real friend...

Jessica said...

You two were definitely separated at birth.

Shey said...

LOL! You win, that dog in the fedora can't be beat! hahahaha Love the red shoes!

Anjela said...

haha! Love the last pic!:)
Also, random but fun, I got the same shirt (but the lighter version) for $7= total steal; especially considering that's pretty much an average price at thrifts stores now a days, so getting something unworn for $7 is just plain awesome!

Kate said...

I am dying - DYING - over the photo of Lua in the hat. Giggling all by myself every time I scroll back up to look it (which is 3 times so far) - you are amazingly hilarious. PS: I'm also heavily addicted to aspartame. Oops.

Nicki said...

LOL. Your ability to combine awesome outfit pictures with the wittiest of remarks never ceases to amaze. Love your shoes and handbag =).
