M.I.C.K.E.Y.M.O.U.S.E.

I am a fashion enthusiast but also take joy in the comfort of an old, perfectly-fitted pair of jeans. With California's tough economy, it's hard to consistently maintain my wardrobe with the latest trends.  But in positivity, I make do of what remains in my slightly outdated, heavily-filled,  sporadically used clothing collection.

On that note, I'm am comfortably dressed in my FIRST EVER [poorly] planned OOTD post. Or rather, the Joy Du Jour, as I take pleasure in donning an random, yet well put together outfit on the spot.  I barely had enough time to squeeze in a self-shoot before I headed to North Hollywood to interview local metal band Stitched Up Heart (I'm a freelance writer for local news site, the Palisades Patch). 

The outfit isn't as glamorous and hip as I'd like it to be, but as I implied, times are tough.  With very little time, I utilized some old pieces, mixed in some favorites and even threw in my infrequently-used Mickey Mouse tee. I made it work.  Not to mention dressed appropriately for my casual interview with some kick-ass rockers.

The only thing I would've done differently is add more accessories.  My turquoise ostrich leather purse would compliment this outfit perfectly and I'd even throw in a couple more cocktail rings for that extra oomph. Well, enough chit chat....

Here's my outfit as well as some photos of Stitched Up Heart from my interview. And yes, yes I do wear my sunglasses indoors. :)

Joy Du Jour

Gosh, fashion blogging makes us so narcissistic.

EnJOY the weekend everyone!

Peace, love, mounds of Joy and muscle-powered cars,
