Been banished from eating at the dinner table tonight cause apparently no one in my family wants to get the flu. Im watching Valley Girl with Nick Cage, instead. The characters are wayyyy 80s and say stuff like "What a hunk" and "Rockin bod" Best quote so far:
"Hi, I'm Fred. I like tacos and '71 Cabernet. My favorite color is magenta."
Philip Lim makes the most beautiful little dresses. I desperately want this lace one pictured in Teen Vogue magazine. Does anyone know if this resort 2010 lace dress is available anywhere?
One of the prettiest pictures ever.
Ive had this picture on my computer for a very long time now. I love it, and I dont know exactly why.
Isnt this so charming?
MK is my favorite of the two. Shes a little bit more glamorous. Her ring collection is the bomb. My aunt and I are trying to recreate her velvet bag in the first pic.
This is basically the hottest thing ever.
I find it a little crazy how similar Sienna and Dree look in these pictures.
Ever heard of jewelery porn?
P.s. Im currently sick (again), HOWEVER, Ive got this lovely kitten keeping me company. My aunt rescued it recently (along with 4 others). We'll have to say goodbye soon but Im enjoying the time I have with her now.
This really beautiful 1940s star ring, worn on my right hand, middle finger. then My Mr. Kate bow ring (one of my favorite things, so cute, click here for more info) Worn on my left hand, middle finger and My mom's Baby ring from high school in the 70s, on my left hand pointer finger.
P.s. The pantomime didnt go so well... the first time. My iPod touch wouldnt work so I had to do it with no music. Which, let me tell you, is not fun. But then I had a classes change and got to do it again, the next day, with music. Way better.
Vintage sweater and boots, Nordstrom dot tights, American Apparel shorts and backpack.
I wore this to school today. Ive got to say that this is basically my uniform during the week. Ill be the first to tell you I care more about getting good grades than looking stylish. Im already so tired waking up I dont want another thing to worry about, especially with the silly dress code at my school. Its a lot to wrap your brain around at 7 am, haha!
However, I must admit, I felt really, really cool in this outfit. Walking down the hallways I felt damn empowered, especially when passing the couple of students who Ive recognized as people caring about what they wear. I stood up a little straighter in these boots and jacket. I think thats what fashion should be about, no? Feeling good. Theres nothing like believing in something youre wearing.
This Thursday my teacher at my school is having our class perform individual pantomimes to music that expresses how we feel/what we would do about the song. Basically act like youre in a movie and put it to the soundtrack. I chose House of the Rising Sun by The Animals. I hope I dont get shot down by all the Paramoure and Soulja Boy lovers ... or whatever kids are listening to these days. :P
(Felt like I should add that Vampire Weekend was my soundtrack to writing this post)
Etro This was so pretty! Oh my gosh. I could LIVE in this collection. Live and breathe and die in it. As long as Im wearing it I would be happy.
Sophia Kokosalaki I felt this was very fairy inspired. I imagine light and dark faeries in the deep forest wearing these pieces, with ivy wrapped around their legs and dragon flies hung as earrings. Just a thought.
Starling skull pendant, all other jewelery is vintage. I find jewelery is one of the easiest ways to express yourself as an individual. Theres really no way that someone will have the same jewelery combinations on as you.... ever.
Wasnt Lanvin incredibly beautiful? I mean, towards the end. Im not talking about the monochromatic dresses, Im really in love with the sparkles. So extravagent.
Oh, by the way... Im sick! And mad about it. I got sat in geometry with two kids who were ill and this one kid that made a big point about me also catching the bug. So here I am, trying to learn my polygons and what not, and theyre sniveling wrecks next to me. Such is life.
