Hey guys, this is going to be a discombobulated post because I have a lot of things I want to mention.

First off, here are the doc marten-esque shoes I mentioned last post- they would be the only ones I'd slip my feet into. Keep in mind, I'm not a fan of dm's. I'm far too skinny for them, leading me to resemble a wannabe BAMF clown. However, these seem remarkably workable if bought in half a size too small. -source unknown

Next order of business.. My hair is not growing fast enough. I know, I'm so narcissistic. Why is it always about you Chantelle? Phooey. Look at these filles. Especially the one with disturbingly long, beautiful wavy (golden..hence angelic?) hair. That bastard. -source unknown

Can I get a 'hell ya' from my former and current ballerinas? I'm telling you.. It would be completely impractical to dance in these [V&R creations], but the fun factor would hit 11 on a 10.0 scale. 'Oh moi? I'm just pirouette-ing through life, swinging tutus over shoulders, and partaking in laser wars.'

I've been obsessing over the minimalist life lately. Maybe for the wrong reasons. I'll never give up consumption, or reduce my dietary repertoire to tasteless meals and a box of bananas. [I may have exaggerated a tad, but you get my gist]. However, a minimalist's ability to reduce his or her material needs to the core basics is fascinating. There is no clutter anywhere. Not in their make-up bags, not inside their closets, not in their cars, not even under their bathroom sinks. Voilà, that is what I would like to achieve. I have taken my wardrobe clean up to a whole new level; I've been chucking sweaters, and jackets and jeans out nearly every day.... and lets not get started on the beauty products- 80% are in the poubelle. Anywho, my point was: getting rid of all this crap is goddamn liberating! Here's one blog on the minimalist lifestyle: mnmlist.

Lastly, and most importantly, is the .Free Clothing Haiti Benefit Tee - 100% of the proceeds from these shirts will go to the relief effort in Haiti. The company is donating to lifeline missions. The shirts are wearable, and even if they're not your style, you can slip yours on to clean/exercise/sleep/buy groceries. Don't think of this as money wasted! A big thank you to lauren for sending me an e-mail about .Free Clothing, and snapping some sexy-mofo pics for my blog post!
