Story 1: At the first sight of winter and chilly weather I lay every clothing item I own and pile it on myself. Given that coats seem to be too big or 'important' I rather put on double shirts, double blouses and blazers. It is my way to still function. This is only possible maybe in Florida considering I would never survive a winter up North dressed like this. One of the tips I can give you is to buy different sizes blazers, jackets, and coats an buy with an outfit in mind. I bought the green velvet jacket in Barcelona and I asked for a bigger size. The sale person persuaded me to buy a smaller size and of course it fits me too small when trying to use it as a winter coat.

Story 2: I finally got my hair a shade gray/silver since it is trendy right? I loved it and hated it at the same time. I am sorry but if you are in your 30s, why would you want to dye your hair gray? I look like I have gray hair. Dos and don'ts if you are passed 20s.

Story 3: I spilled this coffee bought at All Saints over 10 times. At a certain point I ditched it. Don't you hate those plastic covers with the little opener that just spill coffee out like a water jet?

Story 4: Dustin and I found this garage by the education building on Gaines Street. You walk up to a big opening space, very rigid and austere in style. Strong lines, all concrete. It reminds me of fascist architecture. It was great for pictures as the light bounced off and on me quite nicely. 

Big thank you to Dustin Hern who took the time to help me with pictures. It is always hard to find photographers in Tallahassee but also to learn how to work together. You need to learn each other and feel comfortable.
