Okay, so I have this problem where I love Rachel Zoe.  I say it's a problem because the similarities between our lives are non-existent.  I challenge you to name one (other than that we are both women, because that is stupid, cheaters).  I love her show, I love her sass, and I love the clothes she designed, as did everybody else, as you may have noticed.

Am I politely overlooking the fact that she's thinner than I can possibly comprehend?  Yes, yes I am.  And you might be asking yourself, "Why, Harris, why are you looking past such a thing, even as you sit getting popcorn butter all over your keyboard while you're typing this?"  Well, I'll tell you, friends...

Rachel Zoe is making me want to wear my fingernails shorter.

I KNOW.  It's hard to fathom.  We all know, at this point, that I love painting my nails more than is healthy for someone who (allegedly) has friends.  But it is precisely because of nail polish that I want to wear them shorter.  Watching her show, I see her short, but still elegant, nails, covered in the most beautiful red wine nail polish and I WANT THAT FOR ME.

Seriously, does anybody know what polish it is?  Or can anyone recommend some colors that could help me approximate my burning desire to emulate Rachel in this one small facet of my life?


Also, popcorn is a delicious treat, you should really all go have some right now.

Go Wild(cats)

Y'all, I got to go to the Bronx Zoo on Saturday!  My best friend came down from Boston for the weekend and I went with her and her family to see all the wonderful animals.  I even got to see feeding time for the sea lions!  They are my favorite and I always miss feeding time and it was magical that I finally got to see it.  I felt like I was 10 years old again (except in a good, nostalgic way, not like how I actually felt when I was ten).

This is what I wore:
Because it was a Saturday and Northwestern was going to play Michigan and I rep my school hard (even though I don't go there any more :/).  But also, how cute is that shirt!  I love the way it fits, and it's just the right cross between sweatshirt and t-shirt material.  Perfect for a sunny fall day!  I try not to congratulate a company led by someone so skeevy, but good work American Apparel.  Good work.

I used that picture because it was the only one I took.  Apparently, I still don't have my blogging priorities in order.  You can find the shirt here, but I'm telling you right now, I don't know if I would go for it at that price.  Or rather, it would pain me that I couldn't go for it, since I can barely afford to wash my clothes, let alone buy new ones.  We're not going to talk about the football game, because it did not go well.  Instead, creatures!

HE WAS SO GREAT.  Just soaking up the sun.

I know, bad picture, but it's called a fossa, look it up.

Last, but certainly not least, (former) Roommate Sammy was featured on a Chicago street style blog called Layers on Friday!  Check out the post here.  Doesn't she look totally chic?  Way to soak in those last few rays of sun before the terrifying winter sets in, girl.

Look forward to a post about Rachel Zoe, I been keeping up with that crazy lady and her style is relentlessly working its way into every crevice of my brain!

Devotedly (ha!),
