lace, curls, and creme

So my senior ball was on Saturday. While the idea of the whole thing is so distinctly American and also probably an idea thought up by hundreds of vanity-based industries, I still went (in a limo no less) because it's part of the experience.

The inspiration was, not surprisingly, Blair Waldorf. And, just like the last picture, the evening was cute but awkward. oh well.

ring lust

So I've never really been a big jewelry person. I have a lot that my grandmother has given me but I don't always like to wear it because I'm paranoid it will fall off or will hurt me while I'm writing or just generally distract me. I feel like most of the time these are bad excuses and I would look that much better if I wore a cuff or necklace once in a while. So whilst I was clicking through net-a-porter I found this beauty, and could not help but admire it. It's completely exquisite and would look even better on my finger.

gorgeous, no? bijoux heart, $200

s and m

Is it sort of weird how something as confining and submissive can also be seen as real art. I guess these photos aren't quite s and m but they're about a step away.

day to day

this week, in my closet:

f21 dress, thrifted polo flannel, american apparel braid belt, vintage shoes and jewelry

high school freebie shirt, h&m jacket, 3 girls running jeans, old navy jelly gladiators

thrifted flannel, vintage blazer and gold chain, levi jeans

good hair week maybe? maybe. This week was tough, loads of APs and major senior ball planning. I was actually sent home early for my first outfit because it was too short. The only dress code I follow is if I look good in it, I'll wear it.

If I had some money...

If I wasn't so broke and about to spend $50,000 on college I would buy this dress for prom. I know, the idea of prom is sort of awful. I like it but I don't. My date is cute but awkward. My prom group is getting randomer by the second. But that's not what prom is supposed to be about. It's like one perfect night where you feel like the most glamorous person in the room right? With our champagne in the limo, vintage lace dress, and platform heels I feel like that will be no problem.

internet is back

Bride of frankenstein anyone? This was taken from Vogue Italy but it kind of surprised me. I've always thought of Italian design as much more colorful and melodic. I figured if any Vogue were to do a black piece like this it would be France, because it is so "chic." I love it though-I just wish I could get my hair to do that.

my alter ego

I'm a little neurotic I know. It's nothing new to me, and I have begun to embrace it. So I will start of by saying I feel like the television show I wish that my life modeled is Gossip Girl. And in the television show that is my life I would be Blair Waldorf. The biggest queen bee of the city. As if that wasn't perfect enough she is dating the insatiable Nate Archibald. Behold the most perfect moment in Emily Rose viewing history:

I love them. And maybe it's a little neurotic to expect a moment like this of my own in central park next year? A girl can dream.
