"i have always hated fashion people, but i love you"

day 18 - a picture of your biggest insecurity

it's hot in the city tonight

shoes - forever21
necklace - was my grandmother's
bug bangle bracelets - from a store in illinois, never seen anything like them before or since
mood ring - reminiscence
slip - cut out of another two-layered dress from charlotte russe (which i bought three years ago)
outer dress - urban outfitters
it's really rare that i buy anything full-price from urban outfitters, but i had to have this. HAD. TO.
today was the first day of classes!

things have changed

i've re-evaluated a lot of things over the past year, since i started college. i thought i'd do a little blog-thinking about them. this might not be an interesting post but i'm sure you will skip it if you're not intrigued, and i don't mind.
  • i appreciate the 80s a lot more now
  • i have a better understanding of my capacity or lack thereof for emotional attachment
  • i realize that, although it is not easy, i can be happy without owning a cat
  • i have learned to cook
  • and to be a lot more organized
  • i lost all my sense of musical taste and then gained it again while listening to africa by toto and realized that 80s pop might be the best thing that has ever happened to both the world and my emotional state
  • i was diagnosed with depression, which helps with dealing with my feelings. i try not to use it as a scapegoat but to put a name and a reason to what i've been feeling helps a lot
  • i still have an unhealthy relationship with food
  • jo calderone is the hottest man alive
  • the new series of doctor who is underwhelming
  • harry potter means a lot more to me than i ever expected
  • i'm okay with not being cool
  • i really really like "you and i" by lady gaga. when i heard her play it at lollapalooza last year i was less than impressed
  • seeing famous people isn't really a big deal unless they are keiran culkin
  • macaulay culkin's book still speaks a lot to me
  • fuck chuck palahniuk
  • comiccon is the biggest event of the year for me

these girls fall like dominoes

i fucked with my hair again. classes start tomorrow (they were meant to start today but the hurricane shut down subways and while i can walk to class many of my classmates can't, so yes thats what happened) so i was like let's do this. blue in my bangs, purple in my ends.
blue is manic panic atomic turquoise, red is (as usual) special effects in devilish. purple is the two mixed.
doc martens, customized w harry potter things. (my legs are not noodles, i'm not wearing them in this shot)
i'm such a pansy when it comes to wearing docs. i love them but they hurt so much until you break them in, and usually i wanna give up before they're broken in. i've had these since the winter and only recently started wearing them regularly.

hat - disney world
shirt - die antwoord last seen here
skirt - leopard last seen here
"chanel" necklace was five dollars
laura palmer pin from here
bracelet from street stall

this long necklace was my grandmothers, and when my grandpa died last month my mom gave me some of her jewelry (she died years ago). it's really beautiful, and i wish she hadn't died when i was so young, because i barely remember her and clearly this woman was kind of a badass. she idolized joan of arc (her name was joan). i also have a clutch with her initials on it in gold.
my grandma had amazing taste in accessories.

good news, everyone!

my room has glow stars now!
the rest of it's in too much of a state to really show off to the world, but i'm going to the container store tomorrow to hopefully contain things a bit

also: jesus christ, i am so proud of this.

quick update

my computer is back in action, so i should be able to resume regular posting soon. school starts on monday so things might be a bit hectic but i will try to remain faithful!

we are experiencing technical difficulties - please stand by.

my computer is broken. won't turn on at all. so therefore i must take something of an involuntary hiatus so that i may get my shit together. and i will! and i will return, likely soon, and things will be lovely.

hello, home

this is my closet, a guitar, a desk that hasn't been assembled and once it has been assembled i can finally close my closet door, and also it is some of my kitchen. and laundry hamper. and a box full of bags.

what a waste of a 100th post

but exciting nonetheless!
i've just moved into an apartment in new york and it's tiny but it's lovely and it's right by union square and there is jack daniels and vodka in the freezer and it's a fucking mess but i have my own kitchen and everything and it's wonderful and i'm very happy.
i'm a block from union square and a block and a half from forbidden planet (meaning my wallet is in immanent danger)
but all is well, and all is lovely!
i haven't been updating because it's taken a while to get internet up in here. but now everything is running smoothly and you can expect more of me soon
