Fine Feathers Make Fine Birds

And fine bird tops make fine additions to my closet. I love this top very much, especially the bit of lace paneling on the sides and shoulder that give it textural variety. The satiny sheen makes me feel more polished even if I'm duckfacing!
Earlier this week, I was (rudely) awakened by a loud hooting followed by a shrill whistle coming right outside my window. Apparently, some birds are up way before dawn and find it amusing to sing the song of their people for everyone within a mile radius to hear. This sound continued for over 10 bloody minutes, and we all know that minutes are longer when it's 5:00 am. I lied in bed, piling pillows on my ears, pretty much agreeing to sell my first born child in exchange for another hour of sweet, sweet, birdless silence.

  2. Love it. I'm thinking I might have to pick up a bodycon skirt because they always seem to go with everything in your closet.

  3. haha, omg those BIRDS in the morning are the worst. it sounds like a choir in the morning around 530AM outside my window. I really love how you styled your skirt! I kinda gave up on the bodycon look but this is really inspiring and I might have to dig mine out again :) plus, your booties are the best!

  5. We have Magpies here, and I HATE THEM. They make the weirdest noises. It's not chirping. It's horrible. And at 5AM, it's even worse!

  8. And fine birds make fine outfits! I love unexpected details like lace panelling.

    Have you ever heard Australian crows? I used to wake up to them every morning. They're not doing some cutesy chirp chirp. No, they sound like they're DYING. For reals. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QxCqi3G5Dy0

  9. I think a good bodycon is a worthwhile staple. I've been slowly replacing my flimsy forever 21 ones for better quality, inexpensive ones I find at GAP & Banana Republic. They're thicker, a little longer, but are still bodycon!

  13. hahahaah! I bet their convos are drizzled with fun stuff. But hey, please, birds, do them later in the day-- PLEASE! :)

  14. hahaha! I think they know that no one will do anything about it since it's easier to roll over and cover your ears than muster up the strength to get out of bed ;)

  15. I haven't ever heard of them! and It took me a while to figure out which sounds they were making-- because none of them sounded like birds to me! GAH!!!
