Can't Touch This Chicken or this Fur Jacket

The bf kept making fun of my jumpsuit yesterday saying I looked like one of MC Hammer's backup dancers. I'll take it as a complement! The jumpsuit is a tad big, but when I came across it in the thrift store a couple of years ago, I just couldn't say no! I completely forgot about it until I found it hanging in the back of my closet this weekend.

Visited one of my favorite fast-food restaurants Saturday- the grease soaked brown paper bag says it all!  For those of you outside of the DC area, or if you've never tried Peruvian chicken, Pollo Rico is hands down one of the best charbroiled chicken joints ever!  You know their chicken is good when they can survive being shut down once because of a devasting fire, a second time due to a money-laundering scandal and STILL have lines out the door. Oh yea, and then there's the fact that their website is called

My little brother wearing an H&M hat-- one of the most photogenic four year-olds I know! (Of course I'm not at alllll biased)

I'd never owned a fur jacket until I found this one thrifting recently.  I've always considered thrifted or vintage fur morally okay (even though bf kept telling me 100 rabbits died for it. "Lalalala not listening!") and I know there are probably some people out there who hate me right now, but it's just so warm! It also sheds a lot, which is its only downside. (Note to self: Never wear with velvet!) After wearing it Saturday night, bf begged me not to don it again because his peacoat was covered with so much fur, you'd think we owned 100 rabbits.
You know when you look through your camera the day after going out and think, "Oh God, when did we take these pictures?" That's exactly what these last three were.
