I haven’t posted since early October, and now it is May. You’ve probably assumed I’ve quit writing on this blog. You’re partially right.
My interest in high fashion, even fashion in general, has almost disappeared. I guess it was a fleeting hobby or a phase. I still respect it as an art, but it’s not what draws me in anymore.
But people have been asking me to please start blogging again, and I remember how much fun it has been in the past, so I’ve decided I’m keeping The Ruby Lotus, but in a new form.
I’m not deleting any old posts, but from now on, I probably am not going to be blogging the same way I used to. I’ll be using this to share my writing, or to rant, to show you guys an outfit, to give news, or to crosslink. My posts aren’t going to be nearly as frequent and they’re going to be different, and I’m really, really sorry if that disappoints anyone. I’m very thankful for all of you supporting me in my writing and other aspects of my life.
This isn’t goodbye, remember. This is just a change.
If you want to hear from me more often than every time I post on here, I have an Ask (ask.fm/rubybook), a Tumblr (picnicsincemeteries.tumblr.com), an Instagram (@RubyBook [therealsammanson]) and a Twitter (@BookRuby).
Don’t forget about my Youtube channel, either. I’m still going to vlog.
Thanks for sticking by me.
It’s that magical time of the year where I eat excessive desserts and receive free stuff given to me out of social obligation.
THAT’S RIGHT! I AM FIFTEEN!
I’m going to guilt people out of questioning anything I do, no matter how ridiculous, because NO HURT FEELINGS ON MAH BIRTHDAY. To start, I’m going to hire this gal to follow me around all day with her violin.
FRACK YEAH, MONARCHY.
(FLIP YEAH, substitution profanities because family members sometimes read my blog and have heart attacks.)
Second thing I want for my birthday: Feltpez. PLease can it happen? I know I’m unoriginal and a total generic fangirl but THIS IS ACTUALLY SO IMPORTANT TO ME. Please, Xenu. Lauren and Tom were meant for each other. (I can tell because I have seen both of them acting completely separately and then watched completely separate staged interviews).
Not sure what I’m wearing just yet (early morning post).
I am going to do my hair really FANCY with my ROOKIE CROWN. (This is my unfancy hair with the crown.)
Then I’m going to buy myself an Amazon giftcard and get myself a ton of cheap clothes.

Photographer Tommy Ton shot some street style around the 2013 Spring shows. Here are just a few of my favorites.
The beading is incredible, but something about that embroidered circle in the middle of the chest just makes me ^O^
Oh hey. Comme Des Garcons and “That Girl” ‘s lovechild
And now, my very very favorite picture I saw that speaks for itself…
