Wear: Collapsible Car Trash Bin

This is not something I have worn, but it is a fashion my car has been dolled up with, and what are self-imposed rules for if not bending? I wanted some sort of car trash container and weirdly found it hard to find. I mean, you type “car trash can” into Amazon and you get approximately one billion results, but they were either too small, or too expensive, or just… not right. I finally decided to just GET ONE and I got this. It’s collapsible, it has a little elastic band to attach it to wherever you want (mine is on the passenger headrest) and it does its job (for me, that means almost entirely consisting of holding old tissues until I get gas and dump it out).

Watch: The Assassination of Gianni Versace

I wasn’t able to watch the second season of American Crime Story because I was using my dad’s cable subscription to watch TV and he cancelled it. Which is a real shame, seeing as the first season, The People v. OJ Simpson, was one of my favorite shows. I knew it would end up on Netflix eventually, and that time finally came! This season was similar in the sense that ti was about a celebrity tragedy from the 90s that I remember happening in real time. It was also very different, in both style and the sense that it wasn’t really about Gianni Versace, but instead about his killer, Andrew Cunanan. I remember the coverage of Versace’s murder, but I couldn’t have told you anything about Andrew Cunanan. This season became my favorite type of show - where I watch it and simultaneously go down Google and Wikipedia holes wanting to learn more. One of my favorite things is that Vulture does a fact check of each episode of American Crime Story, but literally WHILE I was watching the Versace season they went behind a paywall. I have to suffer so much for my love of television, REALLY. Anyway, the season is great, even if the best Gianni and Donatella lookalikes were already used in the 2013 Lifetime movie.

Want: Small Earrings

When I lived in Beverly Hills, I used to go to the & Other Stories store all the time. It was like, 5 blocks away, and they have the best little earrings. I have so many pairs of earrings from that store, and they’re all my favorites. Now I live in Seattle, and no longer take dog walks where I end up shopping (probably for the best), and I miss getting to browse all the cute stuff! How will I find my next pair of cute, small earrings?? Etsy, it seems, because I really, really, want these bad boys.
