My favorite song is “Statues” by Alexandre Desplat

This is what I looked like today standing still and spinning. I think this outfit, and variations of it, will be reoccurring for me this fall and early winter. It’s warm and fun, and includes some of my favorite articles of clothing.

I also enjoy drawing little eyelash-lines under my eyes. They make me feel like an ugly, old-fashioned china doll. I love it! It puts eyeliner to good use.

Here’s a close-up of the fabrics. I love the shirt and skirt prints together.

Also, the title is true, and here’s a video of it because i don’t know how to attach a music file to a blog post. If you recognize it I will be your friend. I feel super emotional whenever i hear it and i have to hold back tears. Some song do that to you.

 

The songs that really touch me musically (queue the “aww”s)  are: “One Wing” by Wilco, “I Will Follow Him” from The Sister Act, that violin solo in “Spring” from The 4 Seasons by Vivaldi, and the song mentioned in the title. I don’t know why, but whenever i hear them I feel really sentimental.Actually, I will be your SUPER friend if you recognize all of these!

Fun fact: Memebase (part of the Cheezburger network) uses WordPress as a template. Who knew?

 

I left my head and my heart on the dance floor

(From “Meatballs”. I am beginning to reconsider what I said about the non-existance of camp fashion.)

And now…

…Another outfit post. Rah.

I really wanted to put my hair into a bunch of little buns like an 80s teenage girl and/or Savanna B but I could only achieve one. Then I stuck a bunch of clips in it, hazah! Creativity! But seriously, I just wanted to wear a niceish shirt after being in the woods wearing tee shirts and jeans for three weeks. Now I get to wear OTHER jeans and ANOTHER shirt! At least it’s a pretty print, kay? I know it’s boring.

I am also wearing eyeliner- light purple cat-eyes! It matches the nail polish on my left hand (the right is green) and the duct date bracelet I can’t take off without cutting.

How pathetic is this? I had to crouch to be in the framer because I didn’t think to just move the camera or walk forwards. 

Top: Thrifted. Jeans: Cotton On. Shoes: Docs. Bow: American Girl Doll. Other hair things: DIY.

 

 

Ba-doom chah.

I decided I haven’t been very crafty recently, so I checked out the blog of the DIY-goddess Marlena (Self-Constructed-Freak) and I saw she made a Carebear purse/backpack. I have EXACTLY THE SAME CAREBEAR. I was tempted to do the same thing, but there is NO WAY I’m killing Love-A-Lot-Bear. Yes, that’s her name. Awkwardness aside. Back to the point, I went to my basement and murdered a fluffy white plush toy that I’m 99% sure was a bear, but I was getting some serious dog vibes after a while. Whatever. Here’s my new S-C-F inspired purse. I’m not so great at sewing (I just love to do it anyway :3 ) so I’ll only show the good side, and I probably won’t bring it to school/zone of destruction of all objects. The first picture is the whole thing, and the second is the back, where you put stuff into. I’m posing and putting my glasses into it, like I’m in a stock image.

Dontcha just looove my Stella McCartney zebra top? I have no idea how I got it, I probably either accidentally stole it from my mom or a friend. I don’t recall buying anything from Stella McCartney (not that I never wanted to!) I kinda feel like a cheater when I don’t source everything I wear in the pictures I take, so the leggings are from Cotton On (HK).

And here is something I drew a loonog time ago that I kept and still kind of like. My drawing skills aren’t the best, as you may know, but I’m rather proud of it. DUNCOPPYIT

You can probably click it to see all my secret colorful detail.               …that was sarcasm, there is no secret detail.

I have some more news. This will be a longish post, I’m afraid. Here’s the latest 411. :D

1. I have VOWED to myself to stop biting my nails.

After seeing Ergy-Erg’s post here, I noticed how pretty her hands were. I looked at mine and saw short, jagged nails, swollen red skin around my fingertips, and bloody cuticles. Ew. I have tried nail polish, snapping a rubber band on my arm whenever I caught myself, and even putting tape around all my fingers. Nothing worked so now I’m going for sheer willpower. And sleeping with socks on my hands so I can’t do it at night. Day one was a success.

2. I got new make-up.

Sorry. This is super cliche-girly, but I’m so excited! I can now draw on my face with 5 new colors of eyeliner and I got some quality bright red lipstick (before I was using some I got at CVS for $.99). Not that I wear it often, but still.  I have the urge to say ‘rawr’ right now, but that’s irrelevant and stupid so I won’t. Here’s me modeling some new eyeshadow and eyeliner. The eyeshadow is sparkly purple so I’ll probably never wear it- I never wear eyeshadow as is anyway- but it’s still cool. Maybe for halloween? I used all my eyeliners to draw on my hand. My favorites are the silver and lavender.

It looks like I have a black eye. Note to self: never put eyeshadow under your eye, especially purple, or you’ll look like you were in a fight.

Oh, wow. I can’t think of anymore news, even though I felt like there would be a lot. Oh wel,, hee hee…

I’ll probably think of it later and put it in a new irrelevant post.

I mean, she’s so weird, she just, you know, came up to me and started talking to me about crap!

Janis and Damian

As I was getting ready for my chess tournament today (I came in fifth!) and I realized I was the only girl competing. In both schools. So I was instantly reminded of Mean Girls, because Lindsay Lohan was the only girl on the “mathletes” in the movie, and she was surrounded by dorks. No offense, guys, but how else do I classify someone who goes to a chess tournament, finishes early and spends two hours talking about zombies? Anyway, I went through a little sort-of-goth stage this year, and so Lizzy Caplan, Janis, came to mind. She wore these dark, punk-looking clothes and a ton of eyeliner. Oh, here’s me a couple months ago wearing eyeliner! I know, it’s so embarrassing. I looked like such an “emo” wannabe.
So, back to the point, I was reminded of Janis Ian, who inspired the outfit I wore to the chess thingo. For those of you too lame to remember Mean Girls, here are some Janis pics.


In case you didn’t realize, she’s on the left in the first and last picture. Here’s what I wore today. I didn’t put on eyeliner, though, and my friends should thank me for that. It really freaked a couple of them out, as if eyeliner=suicidal or something.

Tee shirt: Gardener 10th HK. Tank: H&M Young (boys) shirt I cut up. Giant skirt-shorts: Orla Kiely. It was my mom's. Random barrettes. You couldn't see my feet so I put my shoe on the desk beside me, which were my Docs. Belt: Nordstrum.
