Lumberjack Chic

I had the busiest weekend probably ever. It included shows in Connecticut, Boston, New Hampshire, lots of friends, parties, driving, breaking up with my boyfriend, and so on. I will just say this: I love life. Here's hoping I don't fail out of school for not getting any work done!

My default pose is entitled "uncomfortable".

The t-shirt can be explained by watching the video for "El Scorcho" by Weezer. Still my favorite song EVER, by the way.

Don't play coy.

My bangs have been having issues lately and nothing I do helps. Ugh ugh ugh. Not that my hair isn't perpetually disgusting, but still. What the hell.

No banging on my door, please.

I Wanted to be With You Alone

Goodness me, I have been such a bad blogger! Last you heard from me was Saturday night before I spent the evening partying with mostly strangers on various floors in my building. Sunday and Monday were spent with my friends from all over on Long Island and in New York City. I hit up so many of my old favorite places - The Vibe Lounge, Effin Gruven (favorite LI bar!), and Vudu Studios (recording studio) - and saw so many of my favorite people that I've been missing. My friends in The Scenic and their shows were technically the main focus, but there was a lot more fun had beyond those. Tuesday and yesterday were intensive homework catch-up sessions, and tonight I'll be in Connecticut for another Scenic show.

I know I never blogged before, but this is the life that I've been dying to return to. So I've been keeping busy, but I've missed some outfits. I apologize. Here's me today.

I feel like these are grainier than usual today. I also look unusually flat-chested. Not complaining!

What a face.

What am I doing, please?

Staring off into space. Silly.

Chair time!

I enjoy climbing on things.

Genuine and Unprepared

So Philly was an incredible time. Just seeing all my friends and partying until 6am was amazing. Saw lots of faces I haven't seen in ages from all over - Philly, Boston, Connecticut, New York - and met some new friends as well. I loved it. Yesterday I came back to New York and relaxed all day. I spent all day today with my various floormates, and tonight I'll be going out once more.

I had fun shooting today too, so I took a million pictures. Apologies.

You may appreciate the fact that I edited out the red eye today. Except for the one picture that I couldn't edit for some reason.

A variation of the last picture.

Looking suddenly alarmed because my phone was ringing.

Kids like me spend too much time texting.

It happened twice.

Monocles are cool.

Being lame.

Also being lame.

Yeah, you know me.

A Little Bit of Housekeeping

So I'm thinking of including more content in my blog, because mainly I post outfits and gratuitous Katy Perry pictures. I do find a lot of inspiration that I never get around to posting, though. I may very well start posting more than once every day, because I'm not sure I'm too keen on mashing everything together in one daily post (like I did in this one). I think I'll do it gradually (and at my own leisure), but there are no rules here. Anything goes.

Today, I kind of freaked out over two items from the-factory-vintage on eBay

If this would fit me (I'm a 34 bust, not 32), I wouldn't be sharing it with you, I'd have it selfishly bookmarked for myself.

I own too many sequined things already to justify purchasing this.

I also figured I'd share with you a couple pictures from today. I wore this outfit already in my Wild Winter post on January 18th, but I realized, I never showed it without the hoodie! I thought it looked particularly nice with just the vest over the shirt.
Me at 9am, almost late for class.

And lastly, how cool is this Tetris quilt? Maybe I'm just too nerdy for my own good, but I beat a version of Tetris on an old computer when I was younger and didn't know what to do with my life once I did. This brings back fond memories.

Kiss My Sass

I haven't had much to say, as I've been mainly engrossed in work and spending all my time in my neighbors' room, but I will say that I love the floor of the building I've moved into. The people that live here are a diverse bunch, but they're all pretty close-knit as well. And yet everyone is so friendly, knocking on my door just to introduce themselves and being so accommodating and accepting.

As I was taking pictures today, I was thinking that I want to get a little more interesting with my photoshoots. I just need to think of some way to do that.

As badass as I could possibly muster in a pink dress and a belt with a butterfly on it.

I feel like I'm wearing a damn WWE Championship belt.

This is an honest face. Actually, I think I had a mouthful of pasta. I'm always eating while taking these pictures for some reason.

I like this scarf.

We Care A Lot

I've been wearing jeans often lately due to snow and feeling weird about it. But still...

I had just come in from the snow for the third time today.

That tank is shiny and velour and I've had it since my freshman year of high school. Wow.

I've had this cardigan forever and never worn it. It has a faux fur collar and it ties closed with a ribbon. Kind of cute, I think.

The problem with most shirts is, I have a long torso and I always have some skin showing. I hate it.

I need to figure out what to do with my hair. I'm open to any/all suggestions (please?).

Ridiculous T-Shirt Day

I hope everyone had a good weekend. I went to a lame little party on Friday, did some shopping Saturday, and watched the Super Bowl on Sunday. I'm still sicker than sick, but I'm surviving.

I'm wearing a ridiculous shirt today that says "I'M THE SH!T" because it makes me laugh. My hoodie reminds me (and everyone else) of Dance Dance Revolution. And also, I'm wearing my new Diesel jeans. Lovely.

I rolled my jeans under instead of cuffing them because they were a bit long.

An odd face indeed.

I practically lived in this hoodie last year.

Relax, this gets even nerdier.

Because a picture of the back of the jeans was necessary, too. I didn't spend $250 on them for nothing! Now I have no money at all, but I'm happy. Broke and happy.


I put on a belt and somehow this is the way I chose to show it off?

Ok, enough. I got a little chubby, didn't I? Meeeh.

Them studs.

There's also a stud on each side in the front.

I forgot to have these on while taking pictures, but I'm also wearing these!!
