queenelizabeth 's Thoughts:

Dear Chictopia, I miss you (see above title). And since you were nice enough to send me this lovely dress via Chic Rewards, I figured I’d ignore looming college deadlines for an hour or two or four and put something new on this page. I wore this on Friday after receiving the dress on Thursday (wooo speedy shipping!) along with a bow made of some tinsel I found in the basement (RECESSIONISTA! just kidding, i hate that phrase more than…anything, really.)

Oh and my new favorite silver shoes and a healthy dose of silver glitter eyeshadow (see closeup), which is probably enough shiny for a decent pass at this here glitter contest going on? (I feel like such an old fogey for having been gone so long and not recognizing these new contests or different parts of the uploading process, kind of like when my aunt Karen went to Argentina right before Walkmans became popular and when she got back everyone was walking around with headphones on their ears and she though the world had become some sort of creepy future dystopia or something. Yeah GOOD STORY ELIZABETH)
And I’m pretty sure this outfit makes me look like an old school marm next to all the shiny NYE dresses on that page…but that’s OK. My actual New Year’s Eve outfit will probably be something with many marshmallow-like layers, in order to watch fireworks on the Common and not freeze to death. And that’s OK too.

Speaking of freezing to death, I braved this morning’s blizzard (ok, that’s a slight exaggeration) to get first dibs on Rodarte for Target…mission accomplished. It was a pretty epic adventure – I ended up getting the blue sheer dress and the black lace cardigan. Oh and some chocolate bars, because it’s Target and I can. I would’ve gotten some footie pajamas too ($12.99!) but they were out of my size…what a shame.
