art imitates life

vintage blazer, gap shirt, richard chai for target skirt, old navy gladiators, vintage belt

Senior project presentations were today. While I find the whole thing to be completely stupid I at least prepared a few notes before my big speech. The way they set up rooms is by last name so some of the people in my room were not the brightest bulbs in the box. One girl said her project would have been better if her grandfather hadn't died. Another boy said at his catering job he "kept the vegetables away from the meat in order to respect the privacy of vegetarians." Whatever. It's over now and I can focus on my completely neurotic fantasies of being Blair Waldorf. Since I don't have a life of my own anymore I live vicariously through Gossip Girl.

She is so gorg, jeez. I'm happy with the way I am but every once in a while I wish I had beautiful hair just like that, long and shiny.

relax, don't do it

vintage blazer, gap shirt, abercrombie jeans, INC heels, f21 headband

Instead of going to senior activities today like I was supposed to I came home and had some coffee and read New York Times online. I found out Clorox bought Burt's Bees back in November which made me feel much less "green." I think that there are alot of ironies in life like that. It also said that Odwalla is owned by Coke and Tom's of Maine is owned by Colgate. I'm all for capitalism, but it definitely comes with some small business tragedies.

Anyway since this is only my second outfit post and I still really have no idea what I'm doing here with this blog I would greatly welcome comments explaining it. It would be very greatly appreciated.


Chanel s/s 09

I am under the firm impression that there is nothing more timeless, elegant, feminine, and indulgent than Chanel. I think that alot of fashion is about the way clothes make you feel, and even just looking at the clothes/accessories makes me happy. Beautiful beautiful beautiful.

Is it really weird that I like hair? I like the fact that hair is one of the only thing that looks good messy. And I like that the right haircut can make all the difference in the world. And I like looking at really nice hair. So, today I tried out something new with my hair for ballet class.

I think it came out pretty nicely. I'm just happy today was my one good hair day of the month.

"Ships at a distance have every man’s wish on board. For some they come in with the tide. For others they sail forever on the same horizon, never out of sight, never landing until the Watcher turns his away in resignation, his dreams mocked to death by time." -Their Eyes Were Watching God, Zora Neale Hurston

Whitney Port

I love Whitney Port. I think she is so beautiful but in a really girl-next-door kind of way. I have to admit that The City is a huge guilty pleasure, along with The Hills. And Whitney went to USC so I like she is at least intelligent, I've heard that Lauren only goes to school when they film the show.

Her outfit is a little off, I know, but I like it. I hope everything works out with Jay!

Doc Martins...

I want.

Day Out

mom's lands end cardigan, walmart leggings, f21 shoes, vintage gold chain

So, I went out to Target today to buy some new nail polish and then I went to f21 to buy a new floppy hat. I kind of began saying a new mantra to myself, "want need want need want need," to try to remember only to buy what I need and not what I want. I also need to remember how much I want to go to college which is going to cost a ton of money. I tend to get a little carried away when around clothes, so I need to work on not buying everything I see. want/need, want/need, want/need...

Christening Entry

Like any new member to this community, I've been lurking for quite some time and I'm ready to start my own blog. I can't think of a better way to begin than with my own personal mission statement:

For me, fashion is not just about what you wear. It's about how it makes you feel. It's about mood and beauty, and the feeling of completion. It doesn't just come from clothes. It comes from words and phrases you've heard a million times before. It comes from familiar sites and foreign places that offer no more to be desired. It comes from the people you see whose stories you will never hear. I want to incorporate everything into my blog and share my own sources of inspiration.
