True Revenge

Revenge?! So close to True Romance?

Yes. Why? Because I’m self-centered. I’m self-centered to the point that everything on this website revolves around me, and where my head is in the world of fashion.

Well, my head just ended a three year relationship, so guess what… Now my head likes the idea of taking revenge on the universe that just turned her life upside down. My head is also a “her”, apparently.

So, I hopped on the “revenge” train, initially, by facing the world in the morning. That was tough. So tough, in fact, that I needed some assistance.

…So I stole his sunglasses.

Yep. Those monster, gold specs are those of my ex-lover, and guess what – he’s not getting them back – sorry, darling!

Sunglasses. Think Lady Gaga, think Anna Wintour, and – oh, every other celebrity in a 500 mile radius of Earth. On days like today, I can’t help but relate to the women who never take their glasses off. I don’t want to look at anyone, catch their eye, get caught staring off, longingly… Nope, just leave me behind my slightly amber wall of anonymity, and my repairs can begin to take place.

I, personally, like aviator glasses mixed with a playlist of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, DJ Shadow, and Mos Def.

If I didn’t have an ex-boyfriend from whom I was able to steal sunglasses, I might reach for these…

  • i have been separated from my ex husband for a year… he’s being a dick and not cooperating with an amicable, lawyerless separation, so i filed my taxes in a perfectly legal and correct way where i get a shitton of money back and he will owe out the ass. i’m saving telling him for when he gets especially douchey. delicious.

  • Love it. And love ’em on ya, doll.

  • you are fantastic. and the sunglasses are perfect. i’m a general crier and lamenter and have been occasionally known to scream out loud into an empty room. i like these things: cooking a big vat of beans and rice (or insert favorite comfort food, mashed potatoes are good too) and then lay on the couch in my pajamas and watch like 72 hours of some sort of favorite show, intermittently drugging myself with tylenol pm or the like so I can catch some sleep.

  • That’s rough honey, I’m sorry.
    I tend to be a “drown myself in work” kind of person, I blaze through projects when I have emotional issues going on, obsessively work out, and just generally nit pick and perfect everything BUT my emotional state of mind.
    then I get exhausted and tired and forget the whole thing and I’m good again :) can we say psycho issues?
    I think my friend has better advice. Go have a good cry, make a cup of tea, bitch to your girlfriends, then put on some red lipstick. This too will pass.
    hope you feel better.

  • somehow I missed this yet another pithy and brilliant expose from Miss Elle. Congratulations, my love, for your ability to be so painfully honest and raucously humorous all at once. You are priceless!

  • i know i’m reading this/commenting a little late, but that’s better than never right?
    i am always so jealous of people who look B.A. in aviators, since i tend to look like i have down syndrome when i put them on. i think it has something to do with my big forehead/petite nose combination. anyway, you’re darling and whoever he is, he is missing out on more than just his sunglasses.
    post break-up i’ve been known to spend a couple days moping around and eating comfort food and watching comfort movies, but my favorite part of always comes right after that, when i have decided to get my crap together and reinvent myself.
    after i get my heart smashed, things get better if i try to focus on the things i can control and perfecting the things i’m good at. luckily i play rugby, and i’m good at tackling the hell out of whatever poor girl has the ball; this is double points because its anger management and self-improvement at the same time!

  • Thank you so much, Rose! Your comment made me smile and now I can’t WAIT to “reinvent” myself! Much love!!

  • m

    i’m sorry for your loss. what i do is i try to remember who i was before the relationship started and pick up from here as if i had never met the guy. of course i’ll still remember the good memories, but the bad i just try to block out or distract myself and keep myself busy.

    good luck. i love your outfits and looking forward to seeing more of them!
