Me Before You

Hi!

It seems the fonts are fine, although I still should probably update the blog, as it's been the same for months. I will have to get around to it, but I'll probably forget like 97 times before I actually do it!

Anyway, let talk about my fantabulous tights! I just bought them off of Amazon, because I am so very classy. I was inspired to purchase the black and yellow striped ones after Emilia Clarke's character Louisa in Me Before You. Like with every  movie I ever see,
I become like 85% my favorite character for the next several days after watching it, at least in my head! To be fair, I already feel like I'm like 60-70% Lou anyway. She dresses at least as terrible as I do! XD

(exhibit B)
See, equally as ratchet as me! Though seriously, she was all like "they don't make bumblebee tights for adult women", like wtf, did she ever check Amazon? I know she's not a real person but still, it's kinda ridiculous. All in all, it was a pretty decent movie, aside from the incessant Ed Shearan playing, and the absolutely atrocious ending, in my opinion. But enough of my movie reviews, I shall put more pictures of what actually wore.
 Dress - Savers  Petty coat - Hot topic  Tights - Amazon  White Jellies - Amazon  Daisy hair clips - Forever 21
Side note, why do people always pose like this? Like, what are we checking for, gum stuck to the bottom of our shoes?
I will definitely be thinking up more crazy outfit combos featuring these tights! There is just so many ways to wear them. A must have for any lunatic's wardrobe! Also, they were only six bucks! Absolutely fabulous, amazing, stupendous! 
(not sure if that is supposed to be Barney The Dinosaur or Trump. XP)

Across The Universe

Hi.
It once again has been an atrocious amount of time between posts. Apparently in my absence, all my fonts have been messed with. It now looks like this is from 2004, and I'm actually writing on Live Journal. Oh well, I probably should change the layout anyways.

To be quite honest, I have not been in the best of moods these past couple weeks.

Yesterday

Hi!

God, it's been kinda a long time since I last posted anything. Honestly, half of it was just me being lazy, and wanting to go to the pool whenever I could. So I basically was in a bathing suit half the time for the past two months. Another reason is that it has been freakin' hot! My camera would literally over-heat in less than 5 minutes! Anyway, as the days are getting shorter, and hopefully a little cooler, I should be able to take more photos. On the plus side, not posting for like 2 months has allowed me to collect quite a few more pieces from thrift stores,

Young and Tragic


Hi!
I'm very excited to finally wear this shirt. See, I bought it in like February or March, but it was still too cold for it to be appropriate. Obviously, it got warmer, but I kept forgetting to wear it. Story of my life (I literally have a terrible memory). Anyway, I remembered I had it. And as it was like, 100 degrees, I figured it would now be, in fact, appropriate. Not surprisingly,

Up Where They Walk, Up Where They Run

Hi!
I have been thinking about doing more things with this blog. It's kinda hard for me to explain, but alas, I shall try. I, for many years, have felt filled with a very large amount of 'creative energy'. I've tried art in various forms, but never felt that it remotely reduced the amount of said 'creative energy' that I had. It felt too passive, too slow. The only thing that I really liked

Rainbow Dash

Hi!
Sorry for my lack of posting. The weather has been suspicious the past couple of days, and it's either raining, or looks like it's going to rain. I personally don't really feel like getting struck by lightning, but maybe that's just me.

Art Deco

Hi!
I know I've said this before, but my favorite color combination by far is red, black and white. It just draws your eye in such a strong way. It's very stark and straightforward, but still has a pulse, an edge if you will. It's very assertive, I think. It's crazy, while I love the whole princess/mermaid/unicorn pastel vibe that is very trendy at the moment, I feel most like me in bold color combos. Like red, yellow and purple, or black, white and red. I feel it most accurately represents me as a person, as a soul. That's why I honestly can't stress enough to wear what feels most like you. The difference it makes in your confidence is huge! I know it sounds incredibly vapid, and maybe it is, but I literally can't imagine dressing in a way, as cheesy as it sounds, that isn't authentic. It feels like you're wearing a disguise. A disguise, that no matter how nice it is, you can tell just isn't real. While there is nothing wrong per se, the shirt matches the pants, the colors go, something just isn't right. 
 
Whatever, I'll stop now, as I probably just sound like a raving lunatic (which I am, but that's beside the point).
Dress - Gap Kids (like a million years ago!)  Socks - Target  Boots - Goodwill  Bandana - Walmart  Sunglasses - Walmart (they were only five dollars!)
It's kinda crazy, I remember buying this dress years ago, and there was a lady standing behind me in line. She started talking to me about how she liked the dress I was buying, and how cute it would look with a pair of red boots. I agreed with her, but as I had no red boots to speak of at the time, I never was able to create the outfit. I was literally like 11 or 12 at the time, and now, years later, I've finally worn that outfit. It's just weird.
Thank you so much for reading! XOXO

The Little Mermaid

Hi!
I actually meant to put this up last night, but I ended up filling up/getting soaked by water guns for my younger siblings/neighbors for a good few hours. By the time I got in, it was too late. So here are some pictures, a day late.
                        Dress - Savers  Shoes - Modcloth  Bag - Asos  Necklace - Antique store
My sister actually found this dress. It's funny, usually whatever I end up buying from thrift stores is stuff my sister finds. Like the turtle neck I wore in the last post. Or, it might technically be a mock-turtle neck. Whatever. Back to the dress. Obviously, when she showed it to me, I had to try it on. It was my favorite color, and it was a shift dress, which I love. And most importantly, it looked like a majestic mermaid tail! I actually bought a dress a little while back that was a lighter/ slightly more greenish teal color, and was covered in sequins. It gave me similar mermaid-y vibes, but it was a body-con fit. It looked really nice, and I thought maybe I could get myself to wear it, since it had such an Ariel aesthetic. But I'm not really used to wearing short, figure hugging dresses, and I felt kinda naked and uncomfortable. So I ended up returning it. This dress, however, is much more my speed.
Here is a photo of me, accidently taking a photo of myself.
Thank you so much for reading! Love you! XOXO

Seventies Suburbia

Hi!
Just a quick post, as it's kinda late. I wanted to share this outfit though, as I thought that my shirt looked very seventies, which I totally dig. It really makes no sense though, to make a sleeve-less shirt out of sweater material. It's not exactly the best shirt to wear when one is sitting in the sun. But it looks cute, so whatever.
Shirt - Savers  Shorts - Delia's clearance  Shoes - Savers
