Re-enter the Matrix

Prepare yourself for this fact:

The original Matrix movie came out 11 years ago, in 1999.

But the style is just as relevant today with the dark neutrals, leather and jewel tones, formfitting shapes, and a touch of edge, especially for fall.

Never underestimate the power of a red dress.

Toning down summer colors...

Limited blouse, H&M skirt, Guess pumps, Essie Chinchilly polish

Did you watch the Emmys last night?

Lea Michele's gown by Oscar de la Renta was my fave.

Song: Consequence by The Notwist

Afternoons are for...

learning new songs on the guitar...

cuddling with Ernie...

hanging out with my Guess model-esque twin sister...

and reading as many September issues as my vision can handle.

Oh Lucky Magazine. How. HOW did you manage to make Jessica Simpson look like a soccer mom in clothes that cost an upwards of $300 per item? (I checked.)

Blazers are fine, but don't put them with a collared shirt, jeans and earrings plucked from 1994. On her behalf, I submit how she should have been captured:

I mean, seriously Lucky. I did a better job capturing my sister with my cell phone.

Mod about shoes

It's about that time again, time to invest in some new shoes. So let ModCloth be your inspiration.

1. Do You Believe in Magenta? Boot: $49.99
2. Hailing Frequencies Heel: $47.99
3. Alejandra Wedge: $57.99
4. Walk Off Some Steam Wedge: $124.99
5. Living La Vida Mocha Boot: $184.99

I don't know why, but the new style of boots reminds me of 1990s boots, perfected by My So Called Life, and heart string-pulling music by Buffalo Tom.

P.S. The little diva who's posing with me is Ernie...
