i warned you of my obsession with this silhouette.  my summer couldn't possibly go on unless i get some more peplum in my life.  it's practically a basic necessity.  slightly more important than eating, but not quite as essential as breathing.  mom, dad, i don't know why you'd ever bother worrying about me, i obviously have adulthood mastered.  i should probably just retire while i'm still ahead...



and to the person on a scooter (motorcycle?) who yelled my name while whizzing past us during this photo shoot, please step forward.  i'm curious as to who it was behind that dark mysterious helmet and wish to apologize for the fact that i only had time to glance in your general direction with squinted eyes and confusion.
